For 2019, Abercrombie & Kent has added 19 departures of its "Egypt & the Nile" itinerary citing "dramatic growth in demand."

Seven dates have been added in the first quarter of 2019 and 12 in the fourth quarter, which is on top of the 37 Egypt departures A&K already had slated for next year.

The operator's "Egypt & the Nile" tour is a small-group journey limited to 18 travelers, guaranteed to depart with a minimum of two guests. 

Egypt is one of A&K's top-selling destinations for 2018, the company said. 

The country has come a long way since falling out of favor with travelers after the January 2011 uprisings. Egypt had been in a years-long slump since then.
