Egypt! A Miracle Offer for December Travelers.


If you are bold, adventurous and you really want to get off the beaten path… if you don’t yet have plans for your December holiday…How about something extraordinary? How about visiting Egypt at a super serious discount? How about below cost?!

Like, $2990 per person, plus the local flights of $400 adult, and $300 under age 12 for 9 days in Egypt, on our scheduled itinerary. Why would we do this? Here is our story.

We know the scoop. We know there has been some stuff going on in Egypt. Since last January we’ve watched this exotic and wonderful destination slide from one of our most popular to one of our most avoided. Well not completely – families still ask about it, and want to know about it – but they aren’t quite comfortable enough to go for it. Even though the travel warnings are lifted, and our colleagues in Egypt are confident they can provide something safe, comfortable, easy, and oh-so-special for your family. And for $700 less per person this year over December 2010! But still, it feels hard for most of you (exception: the excited family heading there for Thanksgiving! Yay!)

Case in Point: Not a single tourist has been harmed since the January 25, 2011 uprising, and Egypt has consistently and publicly declared that tourists will be safe. Because tourism is their biggest economy, and because they really want us to come visit.

So we decided to Go For It. We’re going to step up and help our friends. The heck with Margins and Spreadsheets and Business. We love our colleagues in Egypt, and they’ve been waiting for too long for the opportunity to have honorable work to support their families. So we’ve decided to send you off at Below Our Cost.

This means you still have a US partner who speaks your language and will help you prepare for this great adventure For Free. We’ll spend time on the phone, we’ll mail you information. For Free. Because we want to support our local colleagues in Egypt right now, when they are ready for work.

You’ll have every perk we normally include – airport transfers, included visas, bottled water, fabulous hotels, entrance to the Great Pyramid, access to the most wonderful sites, delicious food, trip insurance. You’ll be cared for every step of the way. We’ll organize all of this for you. You’ll pay only for the effort our colleagues in Egypt – who need this work so much – will provide. Thomson Family Adventures will donate our time, our resources, our postage, and our knowledge of the glories of Egypt, to help you plan for a real trip of a lifetime.

Is this for you? Do you want to be one of the first to visit this burgeoning new Egypt, without the crowds of past years? Do you love a bargain?? Call us now. This offer is good for any date planned for our family itinerary December 2011 or January 2012. We want to help you have a great time in Egypt! 800-262-6255

    Hi Moo

    We might be able to make a January trip – can you send dates?

    2 children (son age 8 and daughter age 11) & 2 adults.

  7. moo says:

    Hi Linda, we do not have a specific date set in January; we can arrange any date that works for you. Because it is not a usual school vacation time we may not have other families to join you, but we are glad to send you off on your own. Give us a call at 800-262-6255

  8. Rebecca Southall says:

    Yes, I’m interested too! With my two boys 18 and 14!


  9. moo says:

    YAY! Let’s get all these teenagers together!

  10. Elissa Hille says:

    This sounds great. Your price of $2900 per person is not reflected when you click on the family itinerary link. The prices listed for 2011 say they reflect the $700 discount but they are much higher than $2900. I was thinking of taking my 13 year old son. Do you have availability for the 12/26 trip for 1 adult and 1 teen? Please confirm the correct pricing. Thank you.

  11. moo says:

    Hi Elissa, the $2990 is correct – our webmaster hasn’t caught up with our deal yet! We have many families checking for flights (international air is not included) but no one yet is confirmed. So yes we have room for you!

  12. Joann Dougherty says:

    Thanks for the email. We may be interested in the December 29-January 4 trip to Egypt. Two adults and our 18 year-old and 14-year old sons. Do you have availability?

  13. shell says:

    Oh, if airfare wasn’t so much to get there I’d be all over this! Going to check some more…

  14. Civry says:

    Hi! I’m 19 and my grandma and I are planning a trip to Egypt for this winter. The ideal dates for us would be sometime between January 3rd and January 17th. Let me know if it would be possible to organize a trip for those dates!

  15. moo says:

    We can definitely do this! Give us a call at 800-262-6255 and we can tell you more about it.

  16. moo says:

    On the other hand, keep in mind the over all cost will never be this low again, even WITH a high airfare!

  17. moo says:

    Joann, the date is December 26 (arriving Cairo Dec 27) – Jan 4, and yes we have availability. Give us a call to make it happen!

  18. Jane says:

    Is 26th through 4th still available? Airfare dropped recently for our departure area. Do you know what shots we need and the approximate tip amounts? Thanks

  19. moo says:

    No shots required, and we’ll give you complete tipping guidelines to take with you……….
