#Egypt from home

Watch, visit and learn. Pause but look to better days

As the lockdown continues in the UK, we wanted to keep you up to date with events here at Discover Egypt UK and in Egypt.

We have now cancelled our trips through until the end of June and all customers due to travel have been offered to transfer, at the same price, to an alternative holiday in 2021, or if not, offering a full cash refund. This policy follows the law brought about by the European Package Travel Regulations 2018 and we continue to adhere to this.

We have been following a very interesting documentary on Channel 4 these last 2 Saturdays – really groundbreaking discoveries (excuse the pun) in Luxor and Aswan. Also, how some of Tutankhamun’s possessions are being transported from Luxor to the new Grand Cairo Museum, due to open later this year.

A continued initiative taken by the Egyptian government is access to virtual tours of the country’s archaeological sites and antiquities. This project is the result of the cooperation of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities with Harvard University. Until the real encounter takes place with such fascinating sites, we hope that this ‘virtual visit’ will provide you with the inspiration to plan you next visit to Egypt.
