Full description

Have a truly spectacular experience with a day trip to the Colored Canyon near Dahab and to the world-famous Blue Hole in the Abu Galum protectorate area. On this day trip wander through a labyrinth of sandstone rocks, take a camel ride along the sea, and snorkel amongst colorful marine life.

Your day trip begins with a pickup from your hotel. Head to your first stop, the Colored Canyon. Be amazed by sandstone rocks and their shades of yellow, purple, red, magenta, and gold. The impressive rocky canyon reaches up to 40 meters and is a result of receding tides from the Red Sea. See how the rocks of the area were formed millions of years ago as a result of water eroding sandstone and limestone.

Enjoy a camel ride by the long shores of the Red Sea and break for lunch with a unique view of the sea. After lunch, head to the Blue Hole. There, you will get the chance to snorkel and see the mesmerizing colourful marine life of the Red Sea.

Next, you will be taken to the biggest shopping area in South Sinai. Take the opportunity to purchase some local Egyptian handicrafts, perfumes, papyrus, and souvenirs. After your adventurous day, get dropped off back at your hotel.

Mauvaise organisation attente très longue et inintéressante sur une plage sale.le seul endroit que nous ayons vu de dahab est une petite galerie et nous emmener direct sur magasin d huilés essentielles alors que dahab est une jolie ville pour l avoir faite il y a 10 ans..seul point positif les canyons colored avant notre retour..je ne recommande pas cette excursion

First they send me a message to be at the front gate of my hotel at 7.45 AM they show up at 8.10 AM and the guide tells me they are on Egyptian Time. First time that happened and I have been in many tours that never were late. We find they set us up to buy stuff at a bed win village not something we asked for. Then we get to our next location which turned out to be all we would see in terms of what we were told. A beautiful walk up a mountain in our flip flops since no one told us to bring runners because we would be walking up a mountain. Then they take the liberty of taking us to a single vendors store (this is common here so that you buy from the vendor and they get a percentage of the take). We had been to this town of Dehab before and know their is a huge shopping area where you can buy from, but they would not get a cut. The rain and thunderstorms came, I told the guide that it was not safe to snorkel when the lightning is happening he argued and said that it is safe in Egypt ...
