Full description

Visit two wonders of the Sinai Peninsula in one day on a jeep tour to the Colored Canyon and the Blue Hole dive site. Encounter astounding rock formations and coral reefs, ride a camel and enjoy a barbeque lunch in the tent in a Bedouin style, and explore the coastal town of Dahab.

After pickup, travel by jeep to the famous Colored Canyon. Explore a vibrant labyrinth of sandstone cliffs in shades of yellow, purple, red, and gold as you walk through the 800-meter gorge.

Continue to the Abu Galum Reserve. Here you’ll have time to snorkel at the coral reefs garden and see the Blue Hole, a world-famous dive site with Red Sea’s rich underwater ecosystem.

Pretty good package with snorkelling, camel ride(short) and decent lunch. It was a group of 11 people in a mini bus fully occupied. Tour was well organised but only thing bothered was the non ac transportation. It was pretty warm. Guide was excellent and the driver made sure we reached each point in time.

the colored canyon was just magnificent, however the organization left something to be desired, we were tossed from right to left. We were sold a wetsuit and lifejacket rental which was not compulsory and overpriced not the same price for everyone else! the camel ride was nice and of course the beautiful seabed.

It was a 12h trip Very nice but too many stops in shops “friends” of the guide We did’t visit Dahab and that was a pity By avoiding these stops we would appreciate other interesting things or just come back a bit early In any case the balance was positive and the trip worth it
