In Recommend’s March issue, our contributing editor, Carla Hunt, put together a sharp feature story on Egypt, and why now is the time to book this destination for your clients.
Geoffrey Kent, CEO, Abercrombie & Kent (A&K), is so positive about the Egypt experience that the destination makes his “Travel Insider” list of where to go in 2015. His lead reasons for why now is the time to go is “the experience for tourists in Egypt right now is as welcoming and upbeat as I’ve ever seen it, plus [visitors enjoying] the ability to see the pyramids without crowds won’t last long.”
And on many of its departures through Nov. 6, A&K is making its brand of luxury more affordable on the 10-day Egypt & the Nile, with prices starting at $4,995, reduced from $7,495. Among the special features are sailing off-the-beaten path along the Nile to Denderah, one of Egypt’s best-preserved and less-frequented temples; staying at the palatial Mena House Hotel with views of the Giza Pyramids from one’s private balcony, as well as the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo with a Nile-view room; camel riding at Giza; and a traditional felucca sailing on the Nile. There are select departures from September to November. On a special Oct. 2 departure, A&K’s Egypt executive director, Dalia Khater, and other special guests, will join passengers aboard Sanctuary Sun Boat IV, visiting the closed-to-the-public tomb of Queen Nefertari; this sailing is priced at $5,695 pp dbl.
