Best value for money trip, the crew on board were excellent throughout and all spoke brilliant English. The lunch provided was fab and there were drinks available all day. Stopped a few times to snorkel and were allowed plenty of time in the sea. Swimming with the dolphins was out of this world and cannot recommend this trip highly enough.

Max and his young Achmeds crew are in a very good mood and have always been helpful. Special attention is paid to children and motivated (e.g. due to the sea) Respectful treatment of the guests. The food on board was also more delicious than we found in our 4 star hotel Sindbad. We have seen dolphins three times. Attention was paid to the corals. It was a very nice experience. You have earned your tip ;-). Christine & Eduardo

If the clear blue waters do not mesmerise you to begin with then the golden Egyptian sun will shone down upon you lifting your soul. If the presence of a caring family does not encompass you then the wild yet playful dolphins surely will. Whether you decide to book this from the hotel or another place, be prepared not to fully experience the hospitality of the captivating crew and the perks of being with experienced swimmers so that you actually have an option of swimming with the dolphins. When i was asked to review, i was considering ignoring the email however if i get the chance to let someone have the same experience i had then i will surely try.
