Excellent and fast wapp communication with Sebastian, changed the trip to Orange bay after booking, since Giftun is still closed for visitors (not mentioned here in programme).Driver was very kind and accurate. The boat crew was great, esspecially SAM and MANGA who vere so friendly, proffessional and entertaining! Food was good also, there was just a smalI lack of water in the last hour. I reccomend trip with them strongly!

We started the trip with a delay of several minutes. On board, the guide told the program of the day trip (only in English). The cruise started very nicely, during which we were always accompanied by a photographer (photos and a movie - additionally payable). The first snorkeling took place on the island, without the presence of a guide (always willing to help). It is worth having a beach towel with you and an additional towel after bathing. The water at this time of year, unfortunately, was still quite cool, but there were many people willing :). We were offered drinks and fruit (it's worth having your snacks). The next dive took place from the deck, the reef was much larger, and thus a greater opportunity to admire the underwater world. The package included refreshments / dinner and a trip to the third reef dive site. My relatives were not satisfied with diving and the diversity of the underwater world. It was a bit frustrating trying to get extra tips for e.g. a cook.

Overall a good trip as the islands are very beautiful and the snorkelling excellent. The water was decidedly chilly and wet suits are required for comfort but not supplied or even offered for an additional charge. Smoking on board is a real downer for a non-smoker such as I so be warned. Paradise Island was anything but as we were forbidden from taking our sandals (to walk on sand?!!!) and the beaches full of other tourists, all of us with nothing to do unless you like swimming in a chilly Red Sea. The food is okayish but not much of it! A bit too much asking for additional money for comfort too. The two guides were brilliant, thanks.
