Egypt´s diving locations are one of the best places on the planet. In addition to all of this, Egypt has a direct line to the ancient world through its pyramids, temples, tombs, which can be found nowhere else but here.

Locations: Modern city look, old towns, beaches, mountains, deserts, agriculture towns and farms, roads, highways, rivers, dunes, underwater locations, snowy mountains during the winter, and amazing museums.  Ancient Egyptian monuments are locations in almost every city in Egypt.
