It was a very fun experience. The staff and agent were very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this activity for your visit to Egypt. The staff took well care of us and made sure we felt safe. It was our first time scuba diving although it was extra it was well worth it and at a very good price. They also take amazing pictures that are optional for purchase after looking at them. They also served some delicious lunch! If you are visiting you must book this activity!!

A fantastic experience exploring the Red Sea with an amazing crew. The organiser Muhammad was extremely good and made our journey as comfortable as he possibly good. The activity was amazing and the instructors such as haani and the others were amazing. We will make sure to recommend this particular trip to our family and friends when we reach the UK.

This is an amazing day trip. Very well organised, safety first, friendly staff, tasty fresh lunch, two snoring & scuba diving stops fallowed by the white island in the end. The diving stops are breathtaking , the beauty under the water is mind blowing! The White Island is surreal! Me and my friend loved it! We do recommend this trip 100%!

The tour was in Russian in the beginning but we asked to be also in English and then it was all good. It was quite cold to swim now in February but the rest of the activities were perfect

Cleanliness, courtesy and professionalism. Recommended.
