"Fantastic country, wonderful food, exceptional diving, beautiful weather - truly a holiday of a lifetime. From the easy to navigate website to the excellent customer service and helpful, friendly tour reps, the trip was well organised from start to finish. The tour guide (Ahmed) was outstanding and made the Egyptian history fun and informative. The whole trip - WOW!"
