If you want a small and wonderfully soothing place on a beach, you should go to Dahab. this place is small and serene, but also happening in the evenings. And if you want to make the trip even more memorable, you should get in touch with Desert Divers. I did introductory scuba diving and rock climbing in the Wadi Gnai with them. The experience was something I would cherish as a pleasant memory with me for long time. Said knows the Wadi very well and his passion for introducing and promoting rock climbing in Dahab is clearly evident. The routes in the Wadi initially look easier than the grade allotted to them. But as I started the climb, the crimpy tiny holds complied with the grade. Very soon, the walls made me realise that there is much to work for me to improve my climbing. The beauty of the Wadi is the cold temperatures in the isolated valley in spite of simmering heat around it.

This is one of the best of my trips in long time, thanks to Desert Divers. A little adherence to timings by staff was something that remained desirable. But the calmness and patience displayed by Tarikh, my diving instructor, was really a great help in making my first ever dive a most enjoyable event. Thanks to Said and his team.

Hi there, and thank you for the kind review. It was very nice to have you here with us. Thanks also for reminding us that "Egyptian time" isn't everyone's time - we'll work harder to stick to timings in future. Take care and keep in touch!

My family and I spent the most incredible couple of days trekking with the bedouin through the Sinai. Desert Divers were extremely friendly and the whole trip very well organised - everything had been thought through. We were picked up from Dahab by our bedouin guide - who drove us a couple of hours out into the heart of the Sinai where we were to meet our camels. The landscape was beautiful - with mountain ranges amongst the sand, breaking up the skyline. You really felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. The camels themselves were very well behaved - and having never ridden a camel before it was a lot of fun learning how ! Everything we needed for camping was carried by our camels - and handled by our very efficient guides. We were cooked a delicious meal from a real wood fire - no gas stoves ! Before sleeping out under the stars. It was pretty magical and I really couldn't recommend it more - definitely the highlight of my trip to Egypt !

From the cool waters of Dahab Desert Divers plunged me and my family into the home of the Bedouin, the Sinai desert. Before meeting our camels it was time to have a cup of tea, and no that did not mean stopping in at a normal café, it meant stopping in at a Bedouin village, sitting round a small fire and sipping tea whilst being offered a local breakfast of fresh goats cheese and naan bread. The children came to join us, and brought over their baby goat to handle whilst the other goats continued to potter around the Bedouin hut. We found our camels with a Bedouin encampment in the heart of the desert. The young boys and girls from the encampment joined us for lunch. And then we were off! Taking us on our high vantage points over sand dunes, between rocky mountains, and through the boundless desert to one of the oldest Bedouin settlements, these camels were a pleasure to ride, giving an experience of riding so unlike that of horses; such is the ease and speed of the camel's desert plod. This is an opportunity which is so rare in our world today. It is to experience the living of man without machine in the harshest of environments.

A fantastic camel trek was organised for me and my family in which we spent 2 days with three Bedouin guides camping out in the desert under the stars in the real Bedouin style. However, most of the time we were travelling on camel back through the desert, wandering past majestic views of both mountains and golden sandy plains (unlike the expected picture of a desert) but also witnessing the true history of the Sinai desert. Furthermore not only was this a most enjoyable trip, it was stress free, easily flying to Sharm El-Sheick and taking a taxi to Dahab where we met our very welcoming guide Fraig and then our chilled-out camels. In my opinion, having stayed in Egypt for 2 weeks, this was by far the highlight of the whole Egyptian experience.
