Quadtour is not Quadtour. This Tour is hosted by many different agencies, but I'd like to say egyptra travel is a one of a kind experience. 3 years ago I made the same Tour. Did I get the same experience? No! This year it was outstanding! Driving 45min through the desert to reach the beduin village, getting a fresh mint tea, petting goats, riding a camel, driving in the desert for 30min again, climbing a nearby mountain to watch the sunset, learning about Egyptian medicine and ending the day in a delicious dinner with dance and fire show. Just wow! Not to mention that you drive back to the starting point by Quad. At night.

Snorkeling with the dolphins was amazing. About 15 of the beautiful mammals below and around us plus the many fish on the reef. It was really very relaxing and enjoyable. The food was similar to that of the hotel, there was enough for everyone and a large selection. The drive to the port was quite long at 2.5 hours from Al Qusair, plus another 2 hours to the snorkeling spot by boat. That gives a lot of sun and you are accordingly tired when you arrive back at the hotel in the evening after almost 10 hours by bus and boat. All in all, it was a very pleasant and beautiful trip. Thank you very much!

We would like to let you know that everything was very well arranged! We were in a resort far south of Marsa Alam, about a 3 hour drive to Safaga where we switched to the normal bus everything but everything was perfectly arranged the driver, the guide everything down to the last detail! Food and drink was also super arranged! The guide spoke good English and wanted to tell you everything! It was definitely a long drive for us, but of course it was worth it! Mohammed was able to tell us everything well! Learned many things! Thanks for everything!

Fantastic excursion swimming with dolphins! Everything was perfect, starting from the organization of the trip via WhatsApp with Alaa who gave us all the information and was always kind and helpful, and then starting this fantastic experience with Sahyd and the boat crew who took us to see a beautiful underwater landscape and finally swim with dolphins! Just wonderful

I am very happy to have made this trip. It was the first time I had the chance to swim with turtles and we also saw dugong! The boat was clean and spacious, good food and excellent guides I strongly recommend !
