What people are saying about Hurghada

Don’t be scared to book.The price is three times less than what the hotel and tour guide offers and I think the experience is way more fun and authentic.Driver came to pick us up(like a private transfer). The guys in the starting point were really nice,make sure to bring scarf and glasses(or you can buy/rent from there). It’s a long drive with the ATV, my girlfriend preferred double ATV with me as it was too hard for her on her own. The Bedouin village was awesome, there are tourist tents but also the Bedouins are living in the houses next to it. We didn’t want to do the camel ride but you can if you want. There were cute baby camels. We were offered tea and showed the Bedouin small market with herb, healing creams and handmade jewelry. We liked that there is no pressure to buy something or give a tip. Definitely recommended. Make sure to bring water!

Pretty good overall. The Quad bike ride was a pretty good experience, watching the sunset in the middle of the desert was also pretty nice. The Buggy portion was a bit short and the Bedouin Village wasn't that interesting but for the price I feel that it was still a good value with multiple different experiences.

Amazing experience! The crew are very caring and considerate and ensure your safety at all times.. as well as looking after those with sea sickness. Swam with dolphins twice!! And had an amazing snorkelling experience. 10/10

It was a great trip!! The guide was very nice. You have to do it, when you are here!! Very nicht experience!!

Great experience. Fun activities and fun crew. Recommend!
