What people are saying about Hurghada

Der Ausflug dauert zwar recht lang, da man mit dem Flugzeug anreisen muss, aber es lohnt sich: Da wir schon sehr zeitig in Kairo waren und das Ägyptische Musuem noch nicht offen hatte, hat uns unser Guide Ahmet das „echte Kairo“ mit allen Facetten (von verdreckten Gassen bis hin zu einem der tollsten Frühstücke, die ich jemals TO GO hatte) gezeigt - das war wirklich sehr beeindruckend! Der restliche Tag war ebenfalls super: Alles war top durchorganisiert und man konnte gut in die ägyptische Geschichte hineinschnuppern, die nun vertieft werden muss.

We had a wonderful trip with the most amazing guide Hannah! She was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the day and even guided us with where to buy souvenirs and where not to be ripped off! She made us feel extremely safe and was so friendly! The day was thoroughly enjoyable and the stop offs made the journey feel not too bad!

I booked this for my wife’s milestone birthday and it proved to be the best possible day. Our guide, Sarwat, was excellent company and highly knowledgeable not only about the history of Egypt but dealing with the locals and generally making it a stress free, fun and educational day. Many thanks Sarwat!

The trip was great and Hannah our tour guide was amazing! She was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Highly recommend her as a guide. The organisation with the bus travel was good, the only downside being that the bus was not very spacious. Overall great trip and would highly recommend it.

The trip from Hurghada to Cairo was great! It's a long drive but you get to see a bit of the country on the way. The pyramids were a highlight but we also enjoyed the boat trip and the museum. It's a good value as well. There was security on the bus also so it's 100% safe.
