The tour is an absolute must do especially if you can get the tour guide that I got his name is Reggi. He showed me all the ins and outs of hurghada. He could not do enough for me. I got to see the old part of the city the beautiful mosque the church and the markets. He was a very well-informed tour guide giving information all along the way about Life in Hurghada from Both the tourist aspect and the locals. It only takes up a few hours of your time to really get to see the area surrounding your hotel don’t miss it. I would 100% recommend this to anyone.

This was an amazing time. Everything was great and the staff was very helpful, professional and entertaining. It was my first time diving so there was a little apprehensive but it quickly passed once I got into the water with my instructor. I especially liked Muhammad ("Hello, it's so good to meet me.") Ha! So much fun and will definitely be going back very soon. Driver was on time, transportation excellent, food was great, value for money exceptional. My highest recommendation.

THE BEST BOAT TRIP YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. Special thanks to Jacky and Abu Jabal for giving us the VIP treatment and diving instructor Mohammad for the amazing first time scuba intro dive. LOVED IT!
