Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold are highlighting their premium
and luxury escorted journeys to Egypt, which is seeing a comeback in popularity
as a top destination for 2019. According to a SEP 2018 UNWTO
global travel and tourism annual report, Egypt has seen a 55% increase in visitors, making it the
world’s fastest growing destination.
“Egypt must be on every
client’s 2019 bucket list,” said Ulla Hefel Böhler,
CEO of Insight Vacations & Luxury Gold.“I travelled to Egypt previously and
loved the country then, with all it had to offer. We were welcomed back this
year with open arms and felt perfectly comfortable and at ease at all times,
without any crowds around. Apart from experiencing the incredible sights with
our Egyptologist, it was also the personal touches that made a huge difference.
We visited a local family home to learn more about Egyptian traditions and
their way of life.
“The heightened interest in Egypt and our commitment to
supporting our long-term Egyptian partners has overwhelmingly been reflected in
the number of client bookings, which have risen by 145% from 2017. Luxury Gold
has in fact, already sold out of its seven-day ‘Elegance of Egypt’ Summer 2019
journey,” said Böhler.
Guests will explore Egypt with their Egyptologist on the
following guided journeys which include Insight Experiences and exclusive
Luxury Gold VIP Experiences:
The nine-day ‘Wonders of Egypt’ with Insight Vacations, which
starts in Cairo and visits the Great Pyramids, Luxor, the West Bank, Philae
Island, and more;
The 12-day ‘Splendours of Egypt’ with Insight Vacations, which
also starts in Cairo and includes a six-day cruise along the Nile. Travellers
