What people are saying about Hurghada

Gteat trip. I was picked up from my hotel in El Gouna (extra fee), and other guests were picked on a way to Hurghada. The tour starts from a small marina south of Hurghada. Around 1 h ride to the 1st snorkel spot, for some 30 min snorkel with a guide in a group, and then short ride to a second spot for another short snorkel (independent). Marine life in red sea is fantastic and colorful, however water twmperature in january makes it barely possible to stay longer than 30 min in water. After, a lunch in a boat during the ride to the Orange Bay, and some 2 hour time there to hang out. Very enjoyable day altogether.

Absolutely wonderful day from start to finish! I loved the order of things, snorkelling and then going to orange bay to relax for the afternoon. Make sure you bring cash for extras as nowhere takes card! The crew and staff were lovely and very kind. I would recommend it to anyone!

Great tour and super value for money. Pick up was arranged via what’s apps. Driver arrived on time. Cruise is spacious. All cruise members are so professional, friendly, helpful and responsible. Highly recommended!!!

Transfer worked great, crew tried very hard, snorkeling spots and the island were really beautiful. The food was also very tasty.

A good trip with 3 and lunch, drinks and fruit stops. Attentive staff. I can recommend!
