From Hurghada: 7-Hour Snorkeling Trip to Dolphin House Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 10/12/2016

Good, lots of fun, Bedouin camp kind of tacky, not authentic

The ride was fun, bedouin camp kind of tacky and not authentic at all, too bad the guide did not stop in the desert on the way back to see the stars, which would have been an awesone experience. Food was ok, too overrun with tourists. Show was terrible, only highlight was the "dancing" boy, which was awesome.

Awesome! Small group and excellent guide made a fantastic day.

We booked this trip online months before our holiday to hurghada as we didn't want to miss out if trips were fully booked but we needn't have worried. Apart from our small group of 8, there were only a couple of coaches at any of the places. We didn't queue for anything. Our guide was fantastic, lots of knowledge and when we stopped for a toilet break and had no change, he even gave us coins for that! Absolutely awesome to be in tombs decorated 3500 years ago. And the short cruise down the Nile was a welcome relief from the heat. Despite the fact we were on the go from 4.30 am to 9pm it was an amazing day, wouldn't have missed it for the world! Many thanks for the emails confirming everything including pick up times.

Perfect in every way, no matter how experienced you are at diving

My wife and I took this trip having never dived, and vow to return many times. The crew LOVE what they do and they know every detail like the back of their hand, and within an hour of setting of had become friends with all of us. I myself was very nervous to dive but at least wanted to get in the water. After the 2nd dive I didn't want to get out! The crew are ultra supportive and patient, explain every instruction clearly and help you every step of the dive. I recommend you pay the optional extra on the day for photographs under water, ours turned out brilliantly. As an unplanned bonus, we also saw dolphins at the end of the last dive! I cannot fault this activity in any way, thank you Mourad, Abdulla, Baracuda and everyone else on board, we WILL be back!

Amazing trip I have saw gorgeous under water world

Thank you very much for the perfect hospitality I have enjoyed the trip and it was really intersting underwater world !!
