NORWALK - A Norwalk-based travel agency is trying to get people home from Egypt in the wake of political unrest there.

Tauck Tours says it had 95 people in the country when anti-government protests began last week.

The agency says two groups flew from Cairo to Athens this morning and the final one will leave Egypt tomorrow. The group set to leave tomorrow includes 34 people who are more than 300 miles south of Cairo.

Tauck Tours says all of its guests are OK and it has canceled all of its trips to Egypt through Feb. 7.
