All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you

This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do

Day 1: Travel to Hurghada

Pack your (small) bag because your Egyptian adventure starts today with a flight to Hurghada, Egypt. Breeze through the airport, pick up some tasty snacks and double-check that you have your flight movie downloaded before your five-hour flight. On arrival, you'll be greeted and driven 25 minutes to your hotel in Sahl Hasheesh. You'll arrive at night, so settle into your suite, and enjoy a delicious Egyptian meal (either in your room or in the restaurant) and get excited for your upcoming diving days.

Day 2: Shore diving

Wake up to the sun rays poking through your blinds and head down for a tasty breakfast ready for the first full day of your trip where you'll have two shore dives with a private guide. The diving here is typical Red Sea - perfect reefs littered with colourful hard and soft coral in clear waters made even more breathtaking by the sunlight piercing the shallow waters. Keep your eyes peeled for moray eels poking their heads out as your glide by, and turtles lazing and grazing.

Post dive, relax poolside at the hotel, sipping on karkadeh (the traditional red hibiscus flower tea).

Day 3: Boat diving

Wake up with an Egyptian coffee - these are strong so be sure to order it arriha (sweet). Today, you'll head out on a boat to explore the nearby reefs with a private guide. With over 40 nearby sites to explore, your guide will be able to decide which one is best suited for the conditions and marine life that you want to see. Perhaps you fancy some wall and drift dives? Or maybe you want to go shark searching. Either way, you'll be surrounded by tropical reef fish and kaleidoscopic corals within pristine waters.

Back at the hotel, enjoy a sunset dinner overlooking the blue waters as you watch the sky turn from blood orange to midnight blue for your final night in Egyptian Paradise.

Day 4: Final day

No need to wake up early; your flight home isn't until tonight. Spend the day exploring the old town of Hurghada. Go souvenir shopping in the souqs and marvel at the majestic mosques, then - if you've got time - head back to your hotel and treat yourself to a pampering treatment at the spa before your flight home. However you choose to spend your final day is up to you. In the evening, you'll be collected from your hotel and driven back to the airport for your nighttime flight home.
