What People Are Saying About Hurghada
The staff, food, accommodations, were once in a lifetime experience. The history of Luxor brings everything to the moment. Kings, power and how the people worshiped in life and death. Egypt is amazing and its people.
This is got to be one of the best tour ever for Hurghadai, truly a breathtaking experience A must for everyone.Thank you for the beautiful day
I go to this trip more than 4 times and I still happy that I booked it it was very nice as usual crew , food , everything ...thanks alot I enjoyed it really..
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.
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.
