Welcome to Egypt and the start of your holiday. Included transfer from Cairo airport, hotel check in.
This morning we venture to the Giza Plateau to explore the great pyramids and Sphinx in all their ancient glory. Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus are the sole survivors of the Seven Ancient Wonders. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are long gone, but the enduring pyramids have been attracting and mesmerising the hungry eyes of travellers since ancient times. Cheops (Khufu) is the oldest and biggest. It stood 146.5m high when it was completed in 2600BC. After 46 centuries, its height has only reduced by 9m! For a real Arabian experience, consider haggling for a camel ride. This evening we transfer to the Cairo bus station for our overnight bus to Dahab.
Arrive Dahab, transfer to your hotel and check in. Later today we head down to our dive centre for introductions and to plan our week of diving. Diving in Dahab is essentially shore diving. With a few exceptions you’ll be driven by jeep to ‘gear up’ at water’s edge to start your dive. Dahab offers around 30 dive sites. Some of the very best are located just a few miles north of Dahab. Consider The Bells, Blue Hole and the Canyon.
Early this morning, bid farewell to Dahab and travel back to Cairo by public bus, arriving early this afternoon. Enjoy the remains of the day independently shopping and exploring Cairo.
