What people are saying about Hurghada
It was the best experience for us in our trip to Egypt. It’s not just the quad ride in the desert but also the Bedouin village and night show. Don’t forget a jumper for the night, it can get rather chilly!
Booked this last minute for 5 of us, didn't know what to expect. The guide was good; the ride was great; scenery was beautiful. We had a great time.
Guide was very good, A long day but well worth it. Can highly recommend this trip with this company. Take the Nile crossing as an added extra.
Egyptra travel organized everything perfectly. The crew were super friendly and they always were in a great party mood. The boat was super clean and the food the best we had in Egypt, and we stayed in a five star hotel! It was just very cold in the first week of January. We will come back once it is warmer.
