Amazing day. Got picked up at 8:30, and set off straight for the blue hole. We were in the sea for a perfect amount of time and even novice swimmers were catered for and looked after. (You have to buy snorkeling gear for £15 / $15) so take money with you! We did not know this. Water was provided at the snorkel fitting site. Lunch was meat rice and potatoes with options to buy a fresh smoothie/coffee etc. You must pay to use the toilet (not a nice experience, take your own paper). We then Rode a camel and set off for Dahab and the Canyon (the canyon was very windy and cold I'd recommend a jacket) however was beautiful. 10/10 day and Muhammed was THE BEST tour guide you could have asked for.

It was a great trip. Ahmed our guide made sure that we were well taken care off. He made few great photos and videos so absolutely fantastic. The only suggestion would be to have maybe 2 stops just to take few pictures of spectacular mountains views. If you have your own snorkelling gear (wetsuit, mask, fins) take it as there is additional charge of 15$ to rent.

Awesome experience I definitely recommend it! Super guide & driver The snorkeling definitely worth the price (10$ extra for the equipment), the wildlife there is amazing! Colours in the canyon are really cool too (maybe not accessible to everyone if you have difficulties walking or any knee pain). Full day of fun, we loved it

Everything was well organized. It was an amazing experience. The colorful canyon is a natural beauty, which is definitely must see. Camel riding and coral reef swimming are definitely not to miss.

It was a good experience! The rider of transfert was punctual and polite. We drive a lot by quad and the show in the desert was fun All good overall
