Explore has re-opened bookings on ten tours to Egypt, following recent changes to travel advice by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

With the creation of eight revised itineraries and two unchanged itineraries, groups and families can now travel back in to Aswan, Luxor and the Red Sea region next year – areas now confirmed safe to visit by the FCO.

While FCO advice now also allows travel to Cairo, restrictions still remain for travel along the Nile Valley between Cairo and Luxor. Therefore the operator has revised eight of its tours that previously travelled through this region, replacing an overnight train journey with an evening flight from Cairo to Aswan.

Carl Burrows, the company's sales director, said: “The safety of our customers is vital; hence why we cancelled all our tours to Egypt earlier this year. Following the latest FCO travel advice however, we are confident that the areas of Egypt on our itineraries are now safe to travel to.
“From riding camels through the desert, to exploring the famous Pyramids, snorkelling in the Red Sea, cruising down the Nile, and visiting ancient temples, there is so much to enjoy in Egypt. The short flight time from the UK and excellent weather also make it a great place to go on holiday. We’re very happy to be able to take customers back again next year.”
