What people are saying about Red Sea Governorate

The horse ride experience included a ride in the desert and also a ride along the sea for 3 beautiful hours! The experience was absolutely amazing, I totally recommend it while in Egypt. The horses are well cared and the owner love them so much as you can see it clearly along the ride. If you are a beginner, you can get as well as an introduction class while riding but if you are a bit advanced, you can get a horse on your level. I was able for galloping and trot and it was dreamy ! My boyfriend learned trout during these 3 hours :) Pick-up and drop-off at hotel flawless and on time! At the end of the tour you can visit the stable and have a great tea with them as well as share your experience. Big up for the ride and the horses! Beautiful

Transport by minibus from our hotel worked great, on time and air-conditioned. Arriving at the miniature park, Mohammed welcomed us and guided us through the entire park. He explained a bit and answered questions (German + English). The best thing about the trip, besides the great photos that Mohammed took of everyone individually or as group family photos, was the camel ride. Mohammed also took videos and photos there. In the end he sat on the camel himself with the kids. Everyone clearly had fun. There were also short drinking breaks in the shade (make sure you have enough water!) At the end, the kids were able to marvel at a baby turtle. All in all a successful short trip.

We were picked up on time by a small bus. There were already other people in there, so it was really tight for us. After about 15 minutes we were at the port. There we got on the boat and drove off relatively quickly. There were still a few places left. We were lucky that not so many people were there. After half an hour we were allowed to go down and look at the fish for about 30 minutes. It was very beautiful! Then we went snorkeling for 30 minutes. We were back at the port at 1 p.m. and were already expected there by our (this time larger) bus. Everything great! The price/performance ratio is great!

Were today with GyG in the Mini Egypt Park and have not regretted it. Our guide Wallid explained everything to us well and also answered our questions in German. The tour was well planned, without rushing and rushing, we were picked up on time from the hotel and taken to Makadi in a minibus. Everything went great. He also takes great photos of the tour. Recommended!

Great trip, saw Dolphins on the way to Giftun, snorkeled and watched the sunset from the ocean. Amazing.
