The local tour operator was OceanAir Travels with our tourguide Ekramy El Daly. The tour was super organized from start to finish. Ekramy was very hospitable, very personable, very competent and has taken time for us even with questions. We would book you anytime again. This was a great day from start to finish which we will never forget.

Great tour! Contact and pickup worked great. Driver and guide were very friendly and accommodating. Guide spoke very good German and made the tour very informative and varied. All our questions have been answered. We have unforgettable pictures! Again any time!

We feel that we were being rush a lot and being pressured to take many photos with certain positions as well as giving tips. Our tour guide was constantly on the phone and did not tell us much about the history. The quad bike we got was not good quality... Overall I think the $$ charged is a but expensive considering the experience.
