The cost of the programme, excluding flights, is £1300. In Cairo, this includes overnights, breakfast, lunch, transport, entry tickets, guides and supplementary costs. On the first night, dinner is offered but on other nights this is left to the visitor’s discretion. During trekking and camel riding, all meals are included. Once in Dahab, dinner is again left to the discretion of visitors, allowing them to choose from a wide variety of restaurants.
Minimum size is 4. We use several guides for larger groups to allow the group to split up according to strengths and interests.
We are happy to adapt the programme to the interests of particular groups and can make arrangements for those divers who already have PADI qualifications.
