Firstly the guides were exceptional! That alone is a score of 5/5! Over all it was a good excursion but we did not visit the Blue Hole National Park and therefore I missed out seeing the Coloured Canyon Salma. This was one of the things I was really looking forward to seeing during my trip to Egypt. I was very disappointed. We only visited the Blue Hole area (not the National Park) where we did a bit of snorkelling, the experience was brilliant but the description of this excursion is misleading and I would not have booked it if I knew this would have been the case and I would have missed out in visiting the Blue Hole National Park and the Canyon Salma. The ATV ride was only around 20 minutes which in my view was satisfactory but it was sold as “45 minutes” which is again misleading. I think this should be corrected in your description of this excursion. Over all I would rate the guides 5/5 but the excursion 3.5-4/5. I think the price was fair for what I received. Thank you.

Nice and informativ guide who had a lot of usfull information about the excursion we went first for 15 min quad bike trip then 15 min with the camel then 20 min quadbike again. The quadbikes were really old and broken. And the Track was bad and bumby. Then a short lunsj brake. After That we had a sighteeing in dahab and went for a short hike in a canyon Nearby . All in all pretty happy with the day.

A fantastic experience exploring the Red Sea with an amazing crew. The organiser Muhammad was extremely good and made our journey as comfortable as he possibly good. The activity was amazing and the instructors such as haani and the others were amazing. We will make sure to recommend this particular trip to our family and friends when we reach the UK.

Great excursion. A little tiring but overall worth it. A special mention to Mohammed who was really helpful and kind as well as professional in his descriptions. A precious guide with excellent Italian who made the excursion more understandable even in the small details. Roberto

Jimmy our scuba guide was excellent. Definitely recommend!
