What people are saying about Hurghada

How can one go to Egypt and not travel to see the pyramids.

Good organisation. Early call in the morning so travel is comfortable at night. Two drivers were excellent. In Cairo the guide awaits you there. The National Museum is great but very busy. Stay close to the group and hope you don't get two ladies who wanted to take pictures of everything thus eating up our time. Lunch was good as well. The Pyramids are spectacular. Beware of the heat though. The trip on the river Nile is not to be missed. Return journey good to, although a bigger bus could make things more comfortable.

We had so much fun it was brilliant and well worth the money

What a great fun afternoon, we went on quad bikes, spiders, went to a Bedouins camp and saw a show it’s was well worth the money and would recommend to all

Excellent day trip such value for money!

Excellent day trip and value for money, a full on itennery but truly making the most of the day. To start the day at 5am our driver was lovely, very helpful and we had plenty of opportunities to stop along the way. On the way back he even treated us all to a sugar cane drink just perfect at the end of a long hot day. On arrival into Luxor we met our guide, was just 3 of us so gave plenty of time to ask questions and be able to listen to all of his information was very informative. Be sure to take plenty of Egyption poinds to valley of the kings was an extra 300 Egyption for a photo pass and although the trip included the cost of visit to 3 tombs for an extra 250 egyption per person you can visit king Tutankhamun tomb so worth it in my opinion. After lunch we also had the option for 200 egyption to enjoy a 45min Nile cruise rather than the bus to the next temple visit again this was a lovely add to the trip. Overall excellent I cant fault it in any way and would highly reccomend

Well organised, beautiful, once in a lifetime experience!

The trip was very efficient and well organised. The guides were lovely and funny. 3 different stops for snorkelling, first one was swimming with dolphins. I personally found this quite difficult but Luca was really helpful and kept things calm. It was a brilliant experience though!! The sea is really beautiful and we saw lots of fish. The banana boat is included in the price, which you must go on because it’s great fun! Dinner was also really tasty and you got plenty to eat. The staff kept coming round with fruit and cold drinks. The boat was clean and well-kept. Overall, me and my friends had one of the best days of our holiday on this trip. Get it booked! :)

Great fun, well looked after & fabulous value for money!!

We had such a fun few hours! After getting our gear and choosing our quad bikes they see how you ride and give you the option to be in the 'normal' or 'fast' group which is good. I was a bit all over the place at first but they were very patient and kept a close eye on me until I got the hang of it. After biking through the desert we stopped for some photos at a picturesque spot and then on to a local town where we had black tea, were offered Shisha and a quick camel ride. Everyone was really friendly. Then we headed back which by this time I felt like a pro and loved feeling the wind as we whizzed along. We were so busy looking at our Go pro camera my partner forget his iphone on the seat of the minibus that we took back to the hotel. We quickly Whatsapp'd the organisers, the driver found it and brought it back to us that same day!! We were so relieved as it had been by birthday the day before and many of the memories would have potentially been lost. All in all, highly recommend! :)
