Diving holidays in Egypt
This is my 2 weeks Egypt itinerary. Hurgada and Dahab diving combined with a cultural visit to Luxor.

Highs & Lows
The vibes of Dahab, wonderful underwater life, great food, visiting the tombs in Luxor, travelling through a sandstorm
I wouldn't go back to Hurghada
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would not go to Hurghada, and would rather have stayed more time in Dahab diving.
How was the food?
Just look for authentic Egyptian food.
Dress modestly in Luxor. Know that Egypt in winter is not very hot. Our diving school had a swimming pool but it was too cold. If the sun is out, it's perfect, but we had a lot of cloudy days as well, when you need a sweater.
There is a night train from Luxor to Cairo that we had tickets for, but with the start of the Covid pandemic, we had to go back home a few days sooner.
Egypt diving is amazing! I didn't expect to see such a wonderful, colourful reef.
