What people are saying about Hurghada

it was a wonderful tour, thanks everyone. It may be that it is not for everyone to "board" a truck 20 km over the desert road. It rocks, it shakes and it is loud and you have to hold on tight (at every fair you pay extra for something like that :-)). it was a special spectacle spectacle to experience the sunset from a small seat cushion on a hill; if you wanted to, you could ride a camel (I had). There was tea and dried dates. Great. Back at the farm we had a very delicious dinner, outside under a starry sky, which unfortunately was covered by a few veils that day. But as is well known, a veil makes the one below it even more exciting. Mohemed, our star knowledgeable guide was great. With a lot of patience he responded to the questions of the small group (9 participants). Conclusion: Sundowners, Bedouin meals in the open air, starry sky in the desert. Highly Recommended,

After a very long drive from Hurghada to Cairo, we finally arrived after almost 7 hours. We drive very tired but when we met our nice travel companion Rasa everything was forgotten. She really sweetened our day and was so nice and full of energy that the tiredness was forgotten. In the museum, Rasa told us something about everything and then we took the boat to the restaurant. The cruise was totally cool and I would recommend it to everyone. The food was delicious too. Then we went to Giza to the pyramids and when we got there it was simply indescribable. It was a wonderful day and we would definitely book it again under one condition: that Rasa is our tour guide again. She was so nice and then showed us the right places where we could buy our souvenirs for a fair price. All in all, a wonderful day and anyone who intends to book it: ask for Rasa, she is the best.

The day tour was one hundred percent worth it. Our guide Rasha was a sweetheart and made our day sweeter with her pleasant and open-minded manner. The drive from Hurghada is of course tough and should not be underestimated. The many security checks, road conditions and also the traffic contribute to this. However, it is worthwhile and you get a lot on offer. Optionally, we could book a boat tour for 10 euros on the Nile through Cairo. (Recommendation on our part) Price-performance ratio is great! Kind regards Dustin & Samantha

What a fabulous (if not too long) day. Saw the pyramids, had boat trip on Nile, camel ride, Egyptian museum, perfume and papyrus factory

great day and our excellent French speaking Guide (Hala). everything was very very well organized
