Ras Mohammad is the most beautiful area of Sharm. the organization is excellent, meeting at the hotel with a guide. Moto quad in good condition. we drive for about 1 hour with photo stops. The second part of the trip was by boat with lunch and 2 snorkeling stops near the coral reefs. The underwater world is incredible, we saw a lot of fish next to us. It feels like you are swimming in an aquarium. Nice experience even if you can't swim because the guide is ready to help you.
