What people are saying about Red Sea Governorate

Don’t be scared to book.The price is three times less than what the hotel and tour guide offers and I think the experience is way more fun and authentic.Driver came to pick us up(like a private transfer). The guys in the starting point were really nice,make sure to bring scarf and glasses(or you can buy/rent from there). It’s a long drive with the ATV, my girlfriend preferred double ATV with me as it was too hard for her on her own. The Bedouin village was awesome, there are tourist tents but also the Bedouins are living in the houses next to it. We didn’t want to do the camel ride but you can if you want. There were cute baby camels. We were offered tea and showed the Bedouin small market with herb, healing creams and handmade jewelry. We liked that there is no pressure to buy something or give a tip. Definitely recommended. Make sure to bring water!

The best experience of my trip. Alex our instructor, the best. I was so scared at first and he assured me that we are safe. Since then I didn't want to go back to the boat. The snorkeling the best experience. Nice lunch, great people and mostly we had a good time. I met amazing people there too.

Amazing experience! The crew are very caring and considerate and ensure your safety at all times.. as well as looking after those with sea sickness. Swam with dolphins twice!! And had an amazing snorkelling experience. 10/10

Delphine gesehen. Optional Möglichkeit mit den Delphinen zu schwimmen. Schnorchelstellen wunderschön. Genügend Zeit. Essen leicht und lecker. Guides sehr nett und witzig. Gute Instruktionen und Animation.

The view of the sky was beautiful and we enjoyed the area and the camels!
