We greet you at Cairo airport and transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle into the hotel and relax after your journey.
We leave Cairo early this morning for the drive across the Suez Canal and through the Sinai Peninsular to Dahab. The rest of the day is free to relax by the hotel pool or beach or head into the main bay area to enjoy the unique feel of this friendly village.
We include a couple of fun activities today, including a snorkelling trip to the Blue Hole and a sunset camel ride.
Today, we travel by jeep into the desert to visit the Coloured Canyon, White Canyon, and Ain Khudra Oasis. A Bedouin lunch is included. Tonight you have the option to climb Mt. Sinai to see the sun rise from the summit, before descending to visit St. Katherine's monastery, site of the Burning Bush, at the foot of the mountain.
Your last day in Dahab is free for you to relax or do some more activities.
We depart Dahab this morning and arrive back in Cairo early in the afternoon where the rest of the day is free for you to do some shopping or sightseeing. Options to enjoy a dinner cruise on the Nile, or see the spectacular sound and light show at the pyramids are available locally.
You can't visit Cairo and not see the pyramids, so today we do a full day guided tour of the pyramids and Sphinx at Gisa before visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to see the famous Tutankhamun exhibit.
Your time is free in Cairo today until we transfer you to the airport for your flight home. Extra nights in Cairo are available if you would like to extend the tour.
We use a range of carefully selected hotels on our group departures. If you have specific requests for hotels, please ask for a private or tailor-made tour.
"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!"
