Everyone knows Egypt is steeped in history for over five millennia. People flock to the sun-drenched deserts and fertile land around the Nile River to discover ancient monuments and the World Heritage Sites in Cairo of the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. World-class museums display a cache or unrivaled treasures to be viewed and enjoyed by all. And the people, one might ask, are some of the friendliest people on earth, eager to welcome you and show true Arabian hospitality. However, not everyone knows, unless they’re divers, that the Red Sea is renowned the world over for the dive sites. On this fascinating journey, you will explore not only the manmade wonders of Egypt’s glorious past, but the unique underwater world of the Red Sea for some of the best diving on earth!

Next day, your first stop is Dahshur which has only recently been opened to the public and is not as developed commercially as Giza, still maintaining a certain peace and tranquility to the site. Continue on to the 14 pyramids of the Sakkara necropolis, including one of the world’s oldest stone structures, and step Pyramid of King Zoser. Lunch at the Panorama Restaurant with its amazing views over the pyramids and then see the Sphinx and the 4,500-year-old Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus. MENA HOUSE.

There are basically two seasons in Egypt: a relatively cool season that lasts November-March (by far the better touring season) and a hot season April-October. The Red Sea coast has fewer extremes and is nice year-round. In the spring (especially late March to early April), sand and dust storms called khamsin blow in and can reduce visibility (sometimes even in Cairo) to less than 100 feet.
