Again and again, also to get in contact with Egyptians

I booked the tour for myself and my 16 year old daughter. It was terrific: We were picked up on time, the pick-up time was named 24 hours before concrete. Coincidentally, we landed in a boat in which 80% of the guests were Egyptian tourists: a colorful mix of bikinis, burkinis, and fully veiled women. All guides went out of their way to take care of all the guests individually: at the two stops, the group was divided into divers and snorkelers, as well as swimmers and non-swimmers. We had plenty of time for snorkeling. The food was superb with rice, noodles, chicken, salad in buffet style. Nevertheless, it is of course a big tourist show. For people who do not speak Arabic or feel insecure, it is perfect because the guides provided a carefree package. However, it is not the only boat on the reef, of course, but you are in a hurry with many other tourists from Egypt and around the world.

An incredible experience !

One of the divers (don’t remember his name but he was a young bald fellow) treated my husband and father exceptionally well & made sure they had an above and beyond first diving experience! My only complaint would be that everyone on the board was allowed to smoke, my diving experience was great but it seemed to be more about taking pictures of me under water instead of letting me experience the beauty under the water. I would much rather prefer a non smoking boat, it was the only thing that made us uncomfortable at times but besides that we had a lovely experience and are very happy ! Also they tried making me pay for equipment although the package I purchased was all inclusive so maybe that should be communicated with partners before harassing them for money

All in all it was a pleasant experience, we were picked up in our facility quite on time (we were constantly contacted by a person via phone who asked us for updates on the transfer) arrived at the port they handed us masks, life jackets and fins (wait because if they take advantage of it and ask you to pay, you show what you paid and always specify that the equipment is included in the package). The trip involves two stops in areas with coral reef (our boat has also made a third) the problem is that the meeting places are for everyone so you find yourself with 20 boats all attached and many people in the water many also underneath because there is someone who dives, so let's say that the conditions are not the best. If you want to dive I recommend buying them with the package because the costs on the boat are much higher (if I remember correctly they want 50 euros per dive).
