I had an amazing time with Duve Urge - a beautiful setting, excellent diving and the staff are so friendly and helpful, they can't do enough for you. It is such a shame that people are staying away from Egypt, particularly Dahab, because of what they have read in the media and in travel advice. Not once did I feel... More

The negative travel advise for this area is now becoming a joke and thanks to you for this positive comment, i think it is clear that it is for no real reason at all to not come and enjoy your holiday here in Dahab. More

First of all I'm aware that people might be put coming to Dahab due to the security advisory from the UK Foreign Office about south Sinai. Ignore that - the incident that caused it was 200km away near the Israeli border. Dahab is a) perfectly safe, and b) everybody is extremely friendly and helpful. I felt entirely safe wandering about,... More

Thanks for reassuring the UK public that Dahab is perfectly safe and that the FCO warning seems moot here, yet still destructive in its effects, lets fight for this amazing town to recover, enough is enough. More

Once again we stayed and dove with Dive-Urge. The rooms are well maintained and the entire facility is extremely clean. A nice change is that Dahab is generally cleaner as well. The Dive masters, Both Mando and Ahmed were great. We were offered to continue with Mando, but joined some other guests that had just completed their open water. As... More
