INCREDIBLE! One of the best tours I’ve ever been in. Firstly the island is out of this world, looks so amazing in person and I’ll never forget it. And secondly the tour team were fantastic, they really care about you and make the experience so much better. The lunch buffet was great, snorkelling was great, if you’re nervous about it just do it as it’s lovely. They provide a photographer who follows you around, it does cost around £25 for these but in my opinion it’s a must have, they are amazing photos and I suggest going with them for some. Overall this was a great trip and it’s one of the main reasons we actually want to come back to Egypt. 5 star.
