Is Egypt making a comeback?

Amy Bryant

It is certainly looking that way with Bunnik Tours adding extra departure dates for the first time since Egypt’s 2011 revolution.

“Our forward sales for Egypt are the strongest they have been in five years and a number of departures in March and May 2017 are fully booked,”  founder Marion Bunnik, who has just returned from Cairo, said.

The new dates depart Australia on the 14th and 22nd of March and the 18th and 26th of April.

Australia’s Egypt experts, Bunnik Tours have been running tours to Egypt and the Middle East for more than 11 years now and have looked after more than 800 small group tours and thousands of inspired Australian travellers.

“Unlike most operators, Bunnik Tours never left Egypt – it’s a destination that is very close to our hearts and the fact that we have continued to support the Egyptian people is reflected in the experiences our clients have.  Our Egyptologists really bring the ancient stones to life whilst at the same time-share the modern culture of Egypt” Bunnik said.

The new dates are for Bunnik’s ‘Egypt in Depth’ and ‘Egypt & Jordan in Depth’ tours, which include a luxury, 4-night Nile Cruise and a visit to the incredible site of Abu Simbel.

Bunnik Tours operates small groups with a maximum of just 20 people – this allows for a better holiday experience as you spend less time waiting for others and more time enjoying the sights. The company committed to helping rebuild the tourism industry in Egypt and sincerely believes that tourism, when done correctly, can be an incredible force for good: developing greater understanding between cultures, and benefiting the communities they visit.
