Returned earlier this month from the Red Sea/Nile Cruise/Cairo trip with Atlantic Adventure Divers and I cannot say enough good about the trip. All transfers went without a hitch, and Ahmed was very attentive all the way from Halifax calling to check on us and to see how things were going. I signed up for this trip for the Red Sea diving but have to say that the land tours were really the highlight.
The Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor with all the sights along the way was incredible and the 2 days seeing the sights in/around Cairo as well. Our guides were very informed about all the places we went. It truly boggles the mind the skills of folks thousands of years ago!!! As to the Red Sea diving—it was cold! But our dive guide Abdul was awesome and very good, showing us all he could during the dives. The dive boat was good, food was really good and we never went hungry.
New Years on the Red Sea was pretty cool too with the crew making us a surprise NY cake and party, complete with manual disco lights 🙂 If you can do this trip, DO IT. Do not, however, rely on thinking your Visa card will be accepted most places-the opposite it true so go prepared w/ enough money for the entire time. We met some really great folks on this trip who I am sure we will continue to be in contact with, and hopefully dive again with, for life! Thanks to Atlantic Adventure Divers for putting this together and working with us over the year+ it took to finally make it there.
