Full description

Discover the different districts of Hurghada on this city tour. Explore both the traditional old town and the new, modern city. After being picked up at your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, you will drive to the fishing village and visit original, simple houses that only have one floor.

It feels like time stands still in this part of the city. The fishermen get up with the sunrise and go to sleep as the sun sets. Life is simple and traditional. Visit a shipyard and see how fishing boats are built and restored using traditional methods.

The largest mosque in Hurghada is situated nearby. Here you can learn more about Islam, the main religion of Egypt. Then continue to the oldest Coptic church in the city. At the end of the tour, you'll visit the large fruit and vegetable market before you are dropped off back at your hotel.

It was really amazing!! Tarek was a really well informed guide and took very good care of us. He knew so much about everything and he showed us many beautiful things about the Egyptian culture, we learned so many new things. The day was planned perfect and we loved all the aspects about the tour. You go to several stores where you can shop. In these shops we saw the best prices we have seen in Egypt so far! And no haggling because there are fixed prices. We will strongly recommend this tour and especially our amazing tour guide Tarek

We booked the excursion a week before in Germany. The driver Ismail was very punctual and very nice. We talked in English. The guide Kerim joined later. Our wishes were met. What I can't recommend is that you do the excursion on Friday morning, since the mosque has Friday prayers and is therefore not accessible. It was a pity that we couldn't see the inside. Otherwise everything was OK.

It was great. By coincidence we had a private tour of the city. Our guide spoke German very well and answered our questions very well. The bazaar of the locals and the exhaust fumes took a toll on my nose. You should take a scarf with you that you can hold up if necessary. :)
