Had a very pleasant tour with Amgad today. He was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. A nice tour for any age to take. Nice to see how the locals live and work. I would recommend for the price it’s worth it.

It was a great city tour with our guide Amgad. He showed us a lot of Hurghada and also told us all the important information about it. I can only recommend this excursion.

Salib has all the information required to explain and show the places around. Very sincere and dedicated person. Good experience!
