Tours In Marsa Alam

1) Luxor Excursion: A Journey Through Time

Luxor, often hailed as the world’s grandest open-air museum, is a portal to Egypt’s pharaonic splendor. Here, you’ll find the awe-inspiring Karnak Temple, the largest ancient religious site ever constructed. Luxor is also an ideal place for souvenir hunting, with a myriad of excellent restaurants and local coffee houses that offer a glimpse into the authentic Egyptian way of life. The West Bank of Luxor showcases a pastoral lifestyle that contrasts sharply with the monumental ruins. And don’t miss the breathtaking sunsets over the Nile, best enjoyed from a traditional felucca.

Note: The journey from Marsa Alam to Luxor takes around three hours. It’s a scenic route, perfect for photography enthusiasts. Remember to wake up early for this excursion and inquire at your hotel about arranging an early breakfast, or plan for a breakfast stop on the way.

2) Cairo Excursion: The Heart of Egypt

Cairo, the cultural and historical epicenter of the Arab world, is a city of contrasts and wonders. From the magnificent pyramids to the treasure-laden Egyptian Museum, and the vibrant, history-soaked streets of Islamic Cairo, the city pulsates with life.

Note: Be prepared for challenges such as pollution and traffic. Cairo is also more prone to petty crimes like pickpocketing compared to other parts of Egypt. The most efficient travel option from Marsa Alam is by air, as a car journey can take upwards of seven hours.

3) Seascope Submarine Trip: An Underwater Adventure

For families with young children, non-swimmers, or those hesitant about sea creatures, the Seascope Submarine offers a safe and comfortable way to marvel at the Red Sea’s coral reefs. Experience a scuba diving-like adventure from the comfort of a semi-submarine, three meters below the surface.

Note: While you won’t have the same freedom as snorkeling or diving, this is a great alternative for capturing underwater beauty without getting wet. Those prone to seasickness should choose a calm day for this excursion.

4) Aswan Excursion: Nubian Wonders

Aswan, set on the Nile, is known for its stunning vistas, vibrant souks, and warm Nubian hospitality. Explore ancient sites and the impressive High Dam, a modern feat of engineering.

Note: The journey from Marsa Alam to Aswan is lengthy, about 3-4 hours by car. While Aswan’s historical sites are fascinating, they are less extensive than those in Luxor. Consider combining visits to both cities with a Nile cruise or a two-day land excursion for a comprehensive experience.

Each of these excursions from Marsa Alam offers a unique window into Egypt’s rich tapestry of history, culture, and natural beauty, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
