What people are saying about Hurghada

I had a brilliant day on the boat trip, fantastic island beautiful sea

Great value for money. I was on my own and only 5 English on the trip but the staff kept checking to see if I was ok so I felt comfortable. Loved the beach , snorkeling and the food was perfect. A brilliant day out . Thank you

Really Fantastic, but a long trip from Hughada!!!

Loved all the sight seeing, real history right there!! I am glad i went with just my husband, as my young kids would have struggled in the heat. I would recommend taking lots of loose change or 5LE & 20LE, toilets are 5LE to use and you are tipping quite alot. Its the culture which is absolutely fine but be prepared. We travelled in a small minibus, slept most of the way on way there, on way back my back was killing me, very tight squeeze. Im glad i went and experienced it, wouldnt recommend the long journey for kids.

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
