Full description
After pickup from your hotel or selected location in Sharm El-Sheikh, head to the Ras Muhammad National Park in an air-conditioned vehicle with an experienced tour guide. After learning about the area’s importance from your guide on the way over, you’ll head straight to the reef where you can enjoy an exhilarating snorkeling session. Marvel at the underwater scenery as you witness the stunning natural diversity of the Red Sea. After your snorkel, enjoy a tour around the park, stopping to see the mangrove belt and for a swim in the Magic Lake, which came into being as a result of an earthquake. Then head back for a pitstop at your hotel so you can change clothes and get ready for the next adventure. Head deep into the desert to hop on some quad bikes and ride for 1 hour across the sandy slopes. Then, proceed onwards to a traditional Bedouin tent, where you’ll enjoy a warm welcome with a traditional mint tea before heading off on a 15-minute camel ride into the sunset. Return to the tent for a lavish dinner, accompanied by a traditional dance and fire show. After the riveting performance, you’ll finish up dinner and head back to your hotel in Sharm El-Sheikh. The tour lasts 10 hours in total.

Pick up at the hotel on time, travel by minibus long enough with a nice guide who explains the territory a little, stop at the PAID rental (not specified, indeed we were told otherwise) for snorkeling equipment. Entrance to the park and necessary photo stops. One hour stop for snorkeling in coral reef full of fish. We in February suffered from cold even with wetsuits. In the afternoon transport to the quad rental without a guide in Italian, so we didn't understand what to do. Definitely poor and obsolete quads continued stops for damage in several stages set by the group to be attacked by children looking for small change. Camel ride of 10 minutes with a very nice Bedouin and dinner with a somewhat long but very characteristic show. Overall, I would recommend explaining all the various stages of the tour in a comprehensible language, because in the many still moments we did not understand what to do.

The places are truly magnificent, the nature reserve, the mangrove route and Snorkeling are from 3000 photos. But we were very bad about the organization of the agency. We waited at 8, as per the latest information and only at 8:15 does a message arrive that they would have picked us up at 9. Well thank you very much !! When we finally get on the van they tell us that the guide in Italian, chosen by us, paid and confirmed would not come. What a nice service I tell myself .. We resented a lot and after a while magically comes up, who knows where a boy who spoke a shy Italian. Anyway nothing to say to the companions, always smiling and kind, but the agency is to be avoided.
