One of Steven's customers can barely lift his huge catch !
Check out these latest photos below from a March 2014 excursion to Luxor taken by Annette - one of Steven's customers. The first three photos show the Marsa Alam Edfu road which follows what was an ancient road connecting the emerald mines of the coastal area with the ancient city of Thebes (now known as Luxor). The first part of the road winds through the mountains and despite the arid conditions you'll see a large number of acacia trees. Their deep routes are able to tap into the underground water left from precipitation near the mountain peaks and also what remains from occasional rain storms which may occur once every few years.

Satefy update 15 November 2013:
Most countries that imposed temporary restrictions on travel to the Red Sea coast of Egypt have now cancelled the travel advice caution. No tourists in the Red Sea area were reported injured or hurt as a result of political protests and clashes in Egypt earlier in the summer but the situation for tourists now is even safer. In fact the Red Sea resorts are probably one of the safest destinations for tourists in the world.
Additionally 18 countries, including the British Foreign Office, have now lifted their advice against travelling to Aswan and Luxor.
There is no major town close to Marsa Alam. Cairo is eight hours by car from Marsa Alam. Alexandria is ten hours. The tiny town of Marsa Alam and the surrounding area is situated in a very remote and quiet part of Egypt. It is still very safe and people are enjoying their holiday and being very warmly welcomed. The British Foreign Office detailed advice is not advising against travel to the Marsa Alam area.
There is no curfew now anywhere in Egypt as far as we are aware and both the British Foreign Office and returning tourists continue to view it as safe. Despite the images from Cairo ( which is hundreds of miles away ) in the media during August, most tourists in the remote Marsa Alam area consider it to be actually less dangerous than most European cities.

Twenty years ago Marsa Alam was little more than a sleepy fishing village, but the region's beautiful beaches and its' virgin reefs are set to make it a prime holiday spot. Our advice is to go before the crowds discover it.
Much of Marsa's spectacular coral reefed coastline remains virtually untouched by man and the region offers spectacular and magical moments such as this video of Dennis the Dugong on YouTube.
You can't beat Marsa Alam for a memorable vacation !
