The pick-up time was arranged via Whattsapp. Here the prisoner has to work a little bit on the communication but everything worked out (it was 2:30 p.m. on the main street and at 1:55 p.m. they were in front of the hotel). There were only two of us and therefore we got a private tour. Our guide was really great. In a great mood and really personable. The spots were good too. Dinner ok. Quad biking was mega. Long and action-packed. I can absolutely recommend it. Suggestions for improvement: - Short test drive for newbies - Water for in between - a little less photographer (unless you wish)

The tour was awesome! Of course you have to get up early (with us it was 4:00 to get from Marsa Alam by private taxi to Hurghada and then take the plane to Cairo), but the day was more than worth it! But our great guide (the BEST!) Gabri also contributed a lot. He was so warm and open-hearted that we hadn't been bored for a minute and had a good day. The whole trip was well planned and worked from the beginning to the end. Of course you would prefer to spend hours at the pyramids and in the museum, but then you should rather stay in Cairo for 2-3 days.

A tiring trip due to the temperatures in July, but worth it. Very nice and nice guide-Ramadan- amazing sights. Pickup from hotel, transefre, and flight of plea bases. Overall, I recommend it to everyone. Peter with the family.

Picked up from our hotel on time and after a 1/2 hour drive, received by our guide who explained extensively about the population and their livelihood

Nasel as a guide was a stroke of luck. The tour is worth seeing and very interesting
