I booked on the app. They have created a WhatsApp group to follow up for my trip. It was a great idea, I felt safe and everything was smooth. Pick up was in time and we have been transferred to the beautiful sea port. After that, we have been sailing to the beautiful Ras Mohamed. We made a snorkeling in the Red Sea and it's AMAZING . We had a good lunch, freshly prepared on the ship and the staff were friendly to us. I highly recommend you to book with this provider and from the reviews you can see real rating to the service. I have tried with them different activities. Finally I want to thank everyone for a great time and hospitality.
