The King Is Back
First, King Tut is back at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
(LACMA) from June 16-Nov. 15, and hotels and tour companies are
looking to cash in on the buzz. The Omni Los Angeles Hotel, for
instance, is offering the “Live Like a King ... Tut” package, that
includes a deluxe room, two VIP tickets to the exhibit, dinner and
more. Not to be outdone, Le Meridien at Beverly Hills, which is
located just five minutes from LACMA, is offering its “Ultimate
King Tut” package that includes a visit to the Tut exhibit in town
as well as a first-class ticket to the Le Meridien Pyramids in
Cairo to see the actual Land of the Pharaohs in person. The price?
A mere $37,500. In addition, tour operator Destinations &
Adventures is launching a series of special monthly Egypt
departures that will focus on the boy king.
Finally, be sure to remind clients that just minutes away from
Disneyland, in Santa Ana, Calif., the Bowers Museum will be hosting
one of the British Museum’s most popular attractions, “Mummies:
Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt.” There should be plenty
on hand to gross out the kids!
Perfect for groups, the actors incorporate personal information
about the guests into the story to make it a different experience
