What people are saying about Abu Galoum

Beautiful and well organized experience. Many activities are included in the package (camel, snorkeling, desert). Interesting is the passage with the minibus through the city of Dahab to observe their way of life. The only negative note is that it is not specified that the clothing (wetsuit, fins, life jacket, mask and snorkel) for snorkeling is paid (not too expensive but it should be mentioned in the description of the excursion). The snorkeling instructor very nice and helpful.

Great excursion, well organized, we really enjoyed it. The jeep ride in the desert was particularly fun.
