Red Sea Pyramids & Ancient Cities
Some of the world’s best dive sites are found in the Red Sea with an abundant and varied marine life giving you the opportunity to encounter various types of groupers, stingrays, parrotfish, angelfish, butterfly fish and turtles. But this is not all! Egypt is also famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world’s most ancient artefacts. It preserves the seventh wonder of the world, the pyramid of Giza and the Great Sphinx of Giza.
Combining the two together can be challenging and sometimes perceived as an unrealistic trip, hence why we have tailor made the following itinerary for you.
