Great activity,a must if you are in Hurghada!Pick up on time, private transfer to the boat.The boat amazing,new and clean,Food on board excellent and lots of it! Banana/sofa water activities last around 5/10mins so everyone can join. Giftun island visit is around 1/1:30h and they place you on one of the orange bay beach bars(on the beach poofs) for free, no pressure to consume anything.Scuba diving trip so nice,around 15/20mins (I am certified diver so I was allowed to hang underwater a bit more). Baracuda was diving with everyone that was interesting,very nice and safe experience for anyone interested to try scuba.Made one last stop for swimming/snorkeling.Also tried the complimentary massage,the masser has the hands of God-must try him!There was a guy that was taking photos underwater and outside but at the end asked 35eur for the photos(i assume was degotiable but still too much to start with).for any inquiry I would advice to also try to reach them there and book directly with them

The tour was absolutely great. top price/performance ratio. Super nice guide who kept pushing the limit over the course of the tour. He had a very good sense of which route to choose to make it fun. There were a few small stops and an obligatory stop at a "Bedouin camp" where you could buy tea, a dromedary and some trinkets. However, completely unobtrusive, which I have never experienced in Egypt. If they had anything interesting I would have even bought something. Only because of that:-). The terrain is very varied and from deeper sand to waves, steep curves, gravel and if you wanted to jump, everything was there. My guide was also passionate about photography and filming, so I now have half an hour of quad biking video footage of me. Highly recommended as long as you are physically fit. At a slower pace, probably recommended for everyone. Top.

I had the best day out here, the snorkelling was amazing I saw many different kinds of fish, orange island was nice, the food was wonderful, scuba diving was great and even did a bit of underwater dancing with my guide. The staff were all brilliant and very attentive and friendly. I cut my foot on the coral and they cleaned it and patched me up great :) the massage was very good and relaxing. Highly recommend this tour I had a fantastic day. I was a solo female traveller and they made me feel very welcome and not lonely. Very well organized and professional. The boat also looked a lot nicer than some of the others we saw out there, great facilities and very clean :) book this tour and you'll be in good hands and have a lot of fun!
