Joyful experience. Transfer from the hotel, ride on a boat with underwater level, swimming in the sea. After returning to port we were personally accompanied by a very friendly guide(he stayed with us till the end) to another boat, that delivered us to a paragliding point. You should try this. Very fun(and cheap as well). Please keep in mind that it's better to bring YOUR OWN snorkling equpment on board. Because they saying that "snorkling equipment is included", but in fact they can give you only one uncomfortable mask(and let's be honest it is only PART of snorkling equipment). But I wasn't surpised at all. So, in general it's definitely worth the price. We've got tons of fun.

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.

Die Abholung war pünktlich. Die Gruppengröße war okay, ca 30 Personen. Sehr gute Organisation. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Keine aufdringlichen Verkaufsveranstaltungen. Mit Kind , 6 Jahre, absolut möglich. Insgesamt ein sehr schönes Erlebnis.

Good experience, they pick you up and then drop you off. We had 2 divings, the instructor was great and we also had an amazing lunch, all for a very good price. Would recommend this trip 100%

One of the best adventures we've experienced! Thank you!
