Sweet and very friendly guys guiding the trip ( except for choleric captain :), which were caring and reserved at the same moment as was adequate, which is great in Egypt. Even if on the boat - I didnt feel bothered by anyone, I felt enough space to have my "place", very good food, drinks for free, very pleasant atmosphere. We saw dolphins, snorkelers we close to touch them, in the end there was a change do fun with speedboat sofa for free. Special thanx for crew for treating my kids so kindly, what was important to keep them in the good mood.
Klare Empfehlung. Es war zwar wirklich ein langer Tag, aber wir konnten gut im Mini Van schlafen und somit die Zeit in Kairo wirklich genießen. Aufgrund der Epidemielage waren wir fast allein an den Pyramiden! Die Fahrer waren sehr verantwortungsbewusst und der Guide Ahmed einfach toll und sehr mitreißend. Das Mittagessen war sehr basic, aber völlig ausreichend. Wir haben zusätzlich noch eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Nil gemacht (ca. 5 EUR pP extra). Wir waren von 2 Uhr nachts bis 21 Uhr abends unterwegs.
Our guide Abdol was amazing! He was extremely patient with my boyfriend and I, as we were beginners scuba diving. The experience was like swimming in a live aquarium/exotic fish tank. The Red Sea was absolutely beautiful and the lunch served was delicious! A nice homemade Egyptian dinner on the boat. I would definitely recommend that anyone tries this at least once during their trip to Hurghada.
Amazing diving experience, friendly crew and a very very patient and experienced instructor, so it is ideal for first time divers. The food on board was very good. I would definitely recommend!
We had a really great day. We also saw 3 dolphins and swam together. It was fantastic success! The guys were very helpful and all day was brilliant. Thank you so much.
