Egypt is a destination truly unlike any other. As one of the oldest civilizations in the world, having originated in the fertile Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago, Egypt has been a must see destination for years. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans, years ago, had visited Egypt to enjoy themselves and to witness firsthand some of mankind’s premier accomplishments.

Now, Egypt continues to welcome us with the locals’ warm hospitality and generous ways. With so many historical sites and destinations for activities, Egypt is a playground for the entire family. As far as historical sites go, the pyramids of Cairo and Giza of course are a must for any first timer, as well as for anyone looking for an opportunity for amazement. St. Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai Desert is also a fantastic site to observe. Luxor is home to the famous Luxor temple, as well as the Temple of Hatchepsut and the Valley of the Kings. In Alexandria, a library is being resurrected as a UNESCO funded project focusing on the study of ancient civilizations along the Mediterranean.

Scuba diving in the Red Sea is utterly fantastic, clearly proving why this location has been deemed one of the best dive spots in the world. The Red Sea is full of coral reefs teeming with colorful fish and other marine sea life as well as ancient ship wrecks waiting for you to explore. The resort area of Na’ama Bay is a great base for divers of all levels. Makadi Bay is a superb destination for divers and snorkelers alike. With its stunning white sand beaches and enchanting turquoise waters, this relaxed, yet fashionable district is a true must for travelers in search of the ultimate Egyptian beach getaway.
