The mayhem caused by anti-government protests in Egypt a few weeks ago have had an effect on the country's tourism with low influx in tourist hot spots, including the Giza pyramids.
However, as the country prepares for new sunshine in the wake of new political rule, countries have also begun to lift their travel advisories for Egypt.
With the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) decision to lift its travel warning against non-essential travel to Egypt, Cox & Kings, one of UK's leading tour operators, is resuming its holiday offerings in Egypt, including rebooking of packages that were canceled during the unrest.
Clients who had their holidays to Egypt cancelled, but would like to reinstate their booking, should contact their Cox & Kings tour consultant or travel agent, the tour operator said in a statement.
Since it's still too early to expect a large number of tourists going back to Egypt, Cox & Kings said that the coming weeks are likely to present a wonderful and rare opportunity to experience the great sites of the Nile valley without the usual number of visitors.
FCO's decision may herald a rebound in Egypt tourism; however, the U.S. Department of State continues to advise U.S. citizens to defer non-essential travel to the country.
