Egypt is known for its mythical land that is rich in history from ancient civilisations and also one of the wonders of the world, the magnificent pyramids. For the past few years, the country was plagued with political unrest and inbound tourists numbers to this beautiful country was greatly reduced.

This month, specialty-luxury tour operator Insight Vacations has taken the bold step to return to Egypt since its withdrawal in 2011.
