Egypt Discounts and Revolution Tales from Travellers

Tuesday 15th March 2011

Find out firsthand about the revolution from local people

Oasis Overland is discounting all May departures of its Regional Explorer tours to Egypt. The £100 discount applies to the Pyramids & Sinai tour, Egypt Encompassed and Egypt & Jordan Explorer.

Additionally, travellers will be able to find out from local people firsthand what happened to them during the revolution and how it has affected them.  Oasis Overland’s Egyptian partners such as felucca captains, diving instructors, Egyptologist guides and hotel managers are all keen to tell their story to visitors and they will give their personal accounts and reflections during each tour.

Middle East Sales Manager, Andy Rye states “We have worked with our local partners for many years and know them personally as friends.  Everyone wants to talk about their experiences and to assure visitors that they are safe and very welcome in Egypt.  This is a unique and unobtrusive way for visitors to find out what it has been like for Egyptians during an historic time.  For instance our Luxor rep, Tyeb Khalifa has told us how he and other locals worked together to guard the Valley of the Kings and Queens from the few protestors who were trying to cause trouble.”

Andy adds “This is also the perfect time to visit if you want to avoid the huge tourist crowds that Egypt usually attracts.”
Oasis Overland’s 14 day Egypt Encompassed trips starting in May now costs just £390 (excluding flights). For details of all discounted tours see their Special Offers webpage, email info@oasisoverland.co.uk or call 01963 363400.
