What people are saying about Hurghada

Luckily, we were only 4 people on the trip so each of us had a full row on the bus and could lie down and sleep the whole journey. That definitely helped making the long trip bearable. The drivers were nice and friendly, although they did not speak much English. Our guide Ahmed called us from Cairo when we entered the bus in the middle of the night telling us the plan for the journey. Ahmed was in general very enthusiastic and informative and it was very clear, that he wanted us to have a good experince! The Nile cruise is an absolute rip-off, so do not bother. However, we felt a little pressured to do it even though we did not really want to pay the extra 10 Euros. However, Ahmed made it sound like the money would also go towards entering a pyramid. I reckon it is all a big scam and a proper waste of money. Despite that, I can definitely recommend Ahmed and the trip as a whole!

The travel in general was very good! The people from the boat very kindly and helpful. The food was excellent with all the drinks and the snorkeling and the water activities also. The only problem was with the driver because he left us like 20 min alone in the van while we were waiting for other people that were coming on the tour. I think in this kind of situation they have to leave them in their hotel. It’s not fair for the rest of the people who was at time and pay the same money. And if you want swim with the dolphins you need to know how to swim very very well. But I recommend this excursion for have a funny day!

Extremely knowledgeable guides. 100% worth doing if you are in the area. Lunch is super tasty. One of our friends was extremely nervous and they talked her through until she was calm and had the most amazing time. All of our party did. Even as an experienced diver I had a beautiful dive. We saw a sting ray and our guide kept a safe distance but close enough to experience the unique adventure.

Good value for money, although seperating the males and females wasn't ideal as myself and my partner wanted to be in close proximity. Also would be worth noting, it is a full speed race of a journey, my partner was hoping for a steady ride through the desert taking in the views. Camel ride was very interesting, but very very short and rushed. Still, enjoyable and good value for money

This was the most amazing experience !!!!! I highly recomand it if you want to have fun and see amazing views! When i booked it i was quite sceptic but it was the best decision ever! Due to Covid-19 we couldn’t enjoy our holiday and we had to leave after only 3 days in Egypt and this was the only activity that we have done and i can say that was AMAZING!
