    Red Sea and Egypt Dive and Land trip

    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.

    Sounds like an awsome trip. If you can swing it try to allow four hours in the Egyptian museum without a guide. They want to show you the main things then out the door. You don't get to go into any of the side rooms. with a guide you get to see maybe 1/10 th.
    looking foward to a report when you get back.

    Just back from Lembeh and already thinking about my next exotic trip: maybe the Red Sea ... Most likely 2011. Steve - please post a report when you get back from your fall trip. It sounds like great!
