Trips whilst staying in Dahab

We have booked to stay at the Iberotel Dahabeya in August this year. We would like to visit Cairo whilst on holiday. Has anyone information about tour operators in resort who are reputable and approx prices for this kind of trip. Any other info regarding Dahab would be appreciated...restaurants, other recommended trips etc. We have a 10yr old daughter who loves snorkelling and is an excellent swimmer, but would like to do more than just snorkell and read books for the 2 weeks.

Thanks

Hi Debbie,

There are many great trips you can make from Dahab. It is possible to go to Cairo but personally in August i wouldnt recommend it for you and your daughter. It is very hot then and the polution from the traffic is very bad in summer time.

But if thathasnt put you off, it is easy to organise yourselves by public bus to Cairo is very cheap 75egp per person (it takes 10 hours). A private mini bus is 900egp each way or an organised tour is possible. Try TravCo one of Egypts largest travel companies - they for sure make tours of Cairo.

But if you want to see the Pyramids and Sphinx i strongly recommend you try to go in Spring, Autumn or Winter. It is too hot too enjoy it and you are better to stay close to water where you can cool off!

St Catherines and Mount Sinai is a great trip from Dahab and as you are going 'up mountain' the temperature there is not so hot. You can make this an overnight or longer trip and even stay in a eco lodge called Al karm managed by Bedouins. There are great walks there and it is cooler and peaceful.

Other trips from Dahab include Nuweiba, Pharoahs Island, Taba, Petra Jordan (day trip or longer). There is enough to do close by you wont get bored.

Best wishes from Dahab

Mahmood
