I think the economy has hit everyone pretty hard and we just had a cancellation for our Red Sea trip on Oct. 28-Nov. 11 which leaves a couple of spots still open.
With a full land itinerary included, this should be a hell of trip so give me a buzz and I can send you more info. Lots of photographers and videographers going on this one - Email me at: steve-sharksdelight@cox.net or through the website:World Films & Travel - dive trips, safari trips, and video footage

RED SEA DIVING AND TOUR LUXOR & CAIRO, EGYPT

October 28 – November 11, 2009

You are invited to join us 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.
