Amazing day. Got picked up at 8:30, and set off straight for the blue hole. We were in the sea for a perfect amount of time and even novice swimmers were catered for and looked after. (You have to buy snorkeling gear for £15 / $15) so take money with you! We did not know this. Water was provided at the snorkel fitting site. Lunch was meat rice and potatoes with options to buy a fresh smoothie/coffee etc. You must pay to use the toilet (not a nice experience, take your own paper). We then Rode a camel and set off for Dahab and the Canyon (the canyon was very windy and cold I'd recommend a jacket) however was beautiful. 10/10 day and Muhammed was THE BEST tour guide you could have asked for.

I booked on the app. They have created a WhatsApp group to follow up for my trip. It was a great idea, I felt safe and everything was smooth. Pick up was in time and we have been transferred to the beautiful sea port. After that, we have been sailing to the beautiful Ras Mohamed. We made a snorkeling in the Red Sea and it's AMAZING . We had a good lunch, freshly prepared on the ship and the staff were friendly to us. I highly recommend you to book with this provider and from the reviews you can see real rating to the service. I have tried with them different activities. Finally I want to thank everyone for a great time and hospitality.

It was a great trip. Ahmed our guide made sure that we were well taken care off. He made few great photos and videos so absolutely fantastic. The only suggestion would be to have maybe 2 stops just to take few pictures of spectacular mountains views. If you have your own snorkelling gear (wetsuit, mask, fins) take it as there is additional charge of 15$ to rent.

Everything was well organized. It was an amazing experience. The colorful canyon is a natural beauty, which is definitely must see. Camel riding and coral reef swimming are definitely not to miss.

Brilliant day out highly recommended fantastic day either with a partner or family worth the money all day
