What People Are Saying About Hurghada
We really enjoyed the trip and Mohammed was very knowledgeable and informative. He answered any questions we had and also made it fun. It was very organised, we felt safe and looked after. The food was very good and there was plenty for everyone to eat. Allow 25 Egyptian pounds each for a drink with the meal. We chose the mango juice which was lovely and refreshing. We did the optional boat trip for £7.50 each. We were in a group of 7, some English speaking and some German speaking. Each group had it's own guide in the appropriate language. I would recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see Luxor.
It was fun to dive in a real submarine, and the trip was very well organized with minimal waiting time. Highly recommended!
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
