Sun Island Tours Breaking Records with Egypt Tours
· More than 82% increase YOY in Jan alone
· Largest product range in market
· Special interest products
Sun Island Tours has set new records for their Egypt tour bookings with an astounding 82% increase on all of 2018’s sales made in January alone.
General Manager John Polyviou says while Egypt remains a hot destination among travellers and yearly visitor numbers are healthy, there is still a long way to go before it returns to its original popularity.
“Continuing to offer English-speaking guaranteed-departure tours after the 2011 civil unrest while many other operators pulled out for many years, we proved to be a resilient bunch with full confidence in the country and also our products,” says Polyviou. “This resilience also helped to quickly restore confidence among our clients, while giving us an edge.”
Polyviou also shares that travellers’ curiosity in the local lifestyle and wanting to get to know the country, landscape, customs and traditions, history, and its people on a deeper level than just seeing the pyramids, temples and cruising the Nile has given rise to special interest tour bookings. Most popular among these toursinclude private entry into the pyramids, hot air ballooning over Luxor, dining with locals in their homes and even climbing Mt Sinai, the mountain which Moses climbed to receive the 10 commandments.
“With 17 escorted tours and packages in Egypt, we have the largest product range in the market,” he adds. “We have been working with the same ground supplier and a host of highly qualified and well respected Egyptologists for the last 25 years; and importantly for our clients, we have also kept our prices unchanged, apart from forex adjustments, for the last eight years to encourage more travellers to see and experience this magnificent cradle of civilisation.”
According to Polyviou, more and more travellers are also seeing Sun Island Tours as a one-stop-shop for combo tour packages to Egypt, Jordan and Israel, thanks to the company’s provision of escorts at customs and visa control to assist with visa entries, as well as the assistance provided with issuing visas for Jordan at no extra cost.
