In Brief:

Ya’lla Extends Discounts on Egypt Tours Through September 2012
Ya’lla Tours USA and its Egyptian vendors have frozen 2011 rates and are extending its current 15 percent reduction promotion on tours to Egypt through September 2012.

“It’s never been more important for tourism dollars to flow into Egypt in order for their society to change,” said Ronen Paldi, president of Ya’lla Tours USA. “To continue down the road to a democratic society, Egypt will require more and more tourist dollars. What this means for travelers is that there has never been a better time to take that dream Egyptian vacation.”

All itineraries to Egypt include private transfers, escorted touring, four- and five-star accommodations, daily breakfast, site entrance fees and hotel taxes. www.yallatours.com
