The Sea


In addition to the classical programs including the Nile cruise trips, Shepherd Travel recommends the Red Sea as your relaxation Oasis after your cultural program.
This diver’s paradise & its beaches are an exquisite gift of nature. The sea, with its clear blue waters, offers colorful corals and rare marine life. The long chain of mountains, with their different colors, run parallel to the coastline, separated from the sea only by a plain, most of which is suitable for camping. All these elements, the work of the Creator, blend into a rare painting of magnificent winter and summer climate and enchanting natural beauty that charms the visitor into believing he is on a legendary tour of a paradise on earth.
