Our day started 6:20 for picking up and finished 20:50ish in the internet city Dubai (we were a bit starving on way back) Our guide was helpful with visa and transportation, however on way back, we spent 1.5hr at least on the boarder as there were long queues...The water temperature was ~24degree, quite comfortable for snorkel. However the water was not so transparent, and little to see. We saw ~8 to 10 dolphins during the boat tour. And as groups of other tourists were delayed, we spent ~1hr waiting at the harbor for the boat to departure...considering the money and time, it is nice to hang out there if all has been covered in Dubai, otherwise it feels a bit over spent (time, money and energy) to take the tour.
The overall trip is reasonable value for money, however, the Red Sea company tries to get customers to pay for the so called extra's like quad biking; camel rides; shisha etc. The package included: -Camel rides; which was a short ride not even 10 minutes long within a small portion of the site.) -Sand boarding; which was not offered. But quad biking was offered for 140 Dirham. -Shisha; which was at a specific table and one was expected to stand around and smoke. For 50 Dirham you could have one brought to your table. False advertising is a big no no. To ensure repeat customers companies must be open and transparent with their product offering and provide what they promise.
Just awesome! We really enjoyed this trip. We were with two kids (4 and 9 years) - no problem, they love every part of it. Dunes ride, camel ride, henna tattoo, dinner, show, squads... Our driver was so great, very smart man called Imram. Highly recommended. Desert is just beautiful...
Our booking appeared to have been overlooked. Had to chase the hotel pickup. Finally picked up and missed the sand boarding and camel riding The safari was amazing so was the bbq and evening show.
Very good boat trip. Lunch was very nice. Twice time snorkeling and swimming possible. Around 4hours in boat. Shuttle bus a little small if more people or talller. Very nice personnel.
