I was collected from outside the hotel for my first ATV rides and after a few stops to pick up others we arrived at the venue. As I have been on this type of trip 4 or 5 times before I didn’t want the slow vanilla version but wanted something a little more challenging. It was only a few hundred Egyptian dollars more to have a private tour. We were off before everyone else and the speeds were averaging 20mph according to my Apple Watch. Safe enough but fast enough to be thrilling. First stop were the echo mountains. I had been there many times so there was no thrill to that but the photography skills of our guide was off the charts and the pics were high quality and at times hilarious. We had a stop at the camp where camel rides and drinks were on sale and there were toilets available for those who needed them. A 15 min break and we jumped back on for the ride back. This was a great day and when I got back to the hotel I immediately booked again for tomorrow

Amazing experience with very professional and helpful team. First stop for snorkeling was near coral reef and guide show us a lot of fish and very beautiful corals. Afterward we went to white island and swim in crystal clear and warm water. Feels like you are in the pool. Lunch was tasty and fresh prepared. Drinks available all the day. Trip absolutely worth for money I will recommend it to all my friends

perfect experience with the crew of the Fares ship, the only drawback (which does not depend on them but on the tour operator) is the totally disorganized pick up. we waited 55 minutes under the sun, the driver says he didn't find anyone, they wanted us to go to another pick up point and in the end we took a taxi that they paid for. other than this mishap, great experience

This was a great tour - well organized and a beautiful boat ride with a friendly crew. Lunch onboard as well. Diving was extra but worth the money and added once on the boat. Great memories and photos. Thank you!

We had a fantastic time, the team really looked after us making our time in the boat memorable, the food was great and really enjoyed all the activities
