You are invited to join us Oct 28 - Nov 11, 2009 as we journey to Egypt to dive the Red Sea and tour the old cities of Luxor and Cairo, Egypt. We will board the plane at JFK in New York and start our adventures in Cairo. After a nights rest at the Concorde El Salam in Cairo, we will fly to Luxor for our first land tour.

During our two day stay in Luxor at the Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel, we will visit the Valley of the Kings, Hatchepsut, Karnak (including the Light Show), and the Colossi of Memnon. The following morning, we will caravan to Marsa Ghailb Port and board the Emperor Divers boat the Elite for a week of Red Sea diving. We will be diving the dive route called “Simplity the Best” which quite literally provides the very finest of diving itineraries and locations. After our 5 days of diving, we will transfer to a Hotel in Hurghada for the night.

The next morning, we will fly back to Cairo to continue our touring. After checking into the Nile Hilton Hotel, we will have the afternoon free. During our full two days in Cairo, we will visit the Great Pyramids, the Solar Boat, the Sphinx, Sakkara, Egyptian Museum, Ali Mosque, Citadelle, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar. We will have a Nile Dinner Cruise including Tanoura show and belly dancing.

We fly out of Cairo in the morning for our return to JFK. We will land in JFK in the early afternoon where you will be able to continue on home.

This post was done by my partner in World Films and Travel. For those who may not know him, Bruce has dove and filmed almost everywhere around the world. His footage has been used by Animal Planet, National Geographic and a ton of local media. We would love to have you aboard what looks to be an exciting trip both for the dive section as well as a fully explored land based tour.
Feel free to contact either he or I should you have any questions or concerns.

This trip is almost filled. For those who will want to go please contact me as soon as you can. Last summer we had a long waiting list for our Cocos trip and want to avoid disappointing any divers who want to dive the Red Sea.
