What people are saying about Hurghada

We are a family of four, my children are 19 and 15 years old. Our tour started at 2am in the morning. There were two drivers who took turns on the way. At least three stops were made, for toilet or snacks. On the way we picked up our guide Ahmed. Ahmed was very hard working, friendly and told us a lot about the excavations. We were a small group with a total of five people (we as a family were already four people). The drive to Cairo is a bit exhausting, but it was definitely worth it. I would recommend to everyone!! Seeing and touching the pyramids live is something else

It was a very nice ride, but I don't recommend riding a camel in the pyramids, I walked and I had a bad conscience because they don't seem to be treated well, be careful with the welfare of the animals, my love! Enjoy! Aaaahhh a strong point is the fabrics of essential oils at the end of the tour, I was addicted to the wonderful smells

An experience of a lifetime! Ahmed was a fantastic tour guide, very attentive, engaging and knowledgeable. It is a long time to travel, however my partner and I stayed up until pickup time (01:30) and slept on the minibus so we were fresh for the tour, then slept again on the way back. Couldn't recommend enough!

Very well organized trip! The driving is a bit long, but once you’re there you forget everything. So much beauty to take in! big thanks to our guide Ahmed who was very kind, knowledgeable, passionate and made sure we enjoyed our day. I highly recommend this tour!

Very nice and informative guide, museum is small but very interesting and it was good to see a part of usual life in the markets, fishing spots and churches. Good choice for a quick half day trip from resort.
