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!

This company runs a very professional and well maintained boat, and the crew knows how to make sure everyone is having a good time! Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to have a fun day on the water. We were able to see the dolphins, but most of the fun came from socializing with the other guests and snorkeling on the beautiful shallow reefs.

This trip was 1 of the best I’ve been on, the boat was immaculate, the crew were outstanding and the food was delicious, I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone, I’m actually thinking about doing it again before I return to the UK.

The experience was exactly the same as it was written in the program description. I really enjoyed discovering the desert of hurghada.
