Take a snorkeling or scuba diving experience to see the colorful coral reefs and all the marine life that calls the waters of Egypt their home.

And let’s not forget about the Red Sea. The story of the waters parting on this prehistoric trade route is buried into our legends, yet a visit here is more than just a pilgrimage. It is an opportunity to see Egypt at its authentic best.

From the city of Alexandria to the many historical sites in Giza, Egypt is a country that is built on the stuff of legends. The list of sites to visit is numerous and the culture is warm and welcoming. Plan your visit and you will be inspired to do great things.
