Awesome experience!!!! The 2 hr estimated ride to the Red Sea definitely felt less than 2 hrs. Maybe because Our tour guide Amir and driver (Ahmad) were kept is entertained with good music by Egyptian artists. They were prompt to pick us up….very understanding when we were a few minutes late. Our guide Amir in particular was accommodating, attentive, and helpful to our needs. They both were very vigilant in preventing unwanted soliciting from the locals. The beach hotel was also a good location if you want a place to relax. (Don’t expect 5 ⭐️ambience). We weren’t really there for that anyway. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!!!! I would highly recommend this

We had a brilliant day! We had Fares as our guide and driver, he was a pleasure to spend the day with and nothing was too much. The drive from Cairo to the Red Sea is one you NEED to take if you are interested in the current goings on in Egypt. It's so fascinating to see the brand new city being created as you drive past. The resort that we were brought to was so safe and well organised, we were even able to have our lunch by the sea. Lunch is quite westernised but very tasty. This was our last trip before we went home and it was a great way to spend it.

The Red Sea trip was fun and relaxing, a great way to spend a free day when you need a break from the city. The best part was a boat ride pulling us on a floaty type thing, which we opted for instead of jet skis. The water was a perfect temp and clean, great for swimming. The lunch was decent and worth the price. Our trip back took a little longer due to traffic. Our guide Mostafa and driver Hamada great and professional. Mostafa communicated to all staff for us and always helped us with whatever we needed.

Definitely recommend this day-trip from Cairo. Nice change of pace outside of the city and the water is beautiful. We paid for the jet ski option but it wasn’t functioning when we arrived but they had tubing and a banana boat which we really enjoyed. Mohammed was our guide and was really friendly and helpful through the day.

Very accommodating with the pickup from hotel and drop off back. Hotel room and lunch included was a plus. Nice relaxing day next to the Red Sea. Would def recommend
