What people are saying about Marsa Alam

The pick-up time was arranged via Whattsapp. Here the prisoner has to work a little bit on the communication but everything worked out (it was 2:30 p.m. on the main street and at 1:55 p.m. they were in front of the hotel). There were only two of us and therefore we got a private tour. Our guide was really great. In a great mood and really personable. The spots were good too. Dinner ok. Quad biking was mega. Long and action-packed. I can absolutely recommend it. Suggestions for improvement: - Short test drive for newbies - Water for in between - a little less photographer (unless you wish)

Very nice tour. Staff very friendly but in English instead of German. Were picked up at the hotel on time. 1h quad drive then with the jeep to the Bedouin. There tea break and sightseeing. On to the camel ride where there was again tea and later dinner. Food was delicious and a lot. Water pipes were only available on request. Duration approx. 8 hours with pick-up

Very friendly, competent and professional team. Always attentive and available for everything you need. Good atmosphere, guaranteed fun and entertainment

Picked up from our hotel on time and after a 1/2 hour drive, received by our guide who explained extensively about the population and their livelihood
