A very well-organized and pleasant trip. A lot of unforgettable impressions. It is worth taking your own mask for snorkeling.

We had a wonderful day at the safari. Our guides were extraordinary and the trip to the Bedouins’ village was very fun. Nobody was pushy (unlike our snorkeling trip) and very friendly. The food and drinks were delicious (better than at the hotel may I say ahaha). You can take beautiful pictures on this trip (on the quads, on the buggy, at the bedouin village, with the camels, at sunset etc) and there’s also a wonderful/ enthusiastic photographer. There were no hidden fees or forcing for tips. If you say no, they respect it. I recommend!
This is one of the most exotic destinations for horseback riding in Egypt, and to top it off, it is reasonably priced! The ancient horse culture is very much alive in Egypt, and it is doubtful that any part of the world can match its rich and broad mosaic of history. Take this horseback tour with the finest bred horses and experience trainers. Horse trainers are also provided to give you pre-ride coaching, and to assist you throughout your ride. Another must-do excursion activity while in Hurghada, for horse lovers of all kinds! This is a family friendly activity. Traveler safety: • This tour is child appropriate • A helmet is provided to each rider • Pregnant women are not permitted to ride a horse • A disclaimer form against damage and personal injury required to be signed prior to the tour
We were exactly on time at the pick up location. Unfortunately the driver arrived 1 (one) hour later only... 2/3 of our family had first time experience by horse riding. But the local team helped a lot to have fun and to enjoy the trip. If you are familier with riding, you will have a lot of fun! The local team made fantastic pictures and videos of us.

I had a wonderful guide in Nasser. He was courteous careful knowledgeable and personalble. We went out on the bikes for about 1.5 hrs with a break in the middle. One goes to a bedoin area where tea is offered and Nasser takes you round to see how the Bedouin make ornaments, medicines and shawls. There is also a camel ride. Trade is poor st the moment for the Bedouin as very few tourists so I strongly encourage you to buy as much as possible as this is their only revenue. Without this they have to travel many miles away to find work. We then drove back to the Centre for another hour where Nasser takes an action video of you driving and you have free reign driving back. The bikes are in good condition and can go about 30/40 miles/ hr. But Nasser ensures you are safe at all times. Overall a very enjoyable 4 hrs. I highly recommend this for anyone to have a go whilst in Hurghada/ El Gouna

After dinner, relish the tranquility of the desert whilst watching millions of stars in a calm atmosphere away from the noise of the city. Your guide will then take you on a trip to the edge of the universe to enjoy the vision of the distant milky way represented through the stars. You will have then the opportunity to se...
Well, you'll probably puke from the hotel to the desert, the driver knew his job, but riding a crocodile would have probably been more comfortable. Aside from the trip, the tour was amazing, the guide was very helpful and the dinner, despite not being exactly "romantic", is less a candle light dinner and more a 1969 night collective dinner with candle light. The stargazing was fast but felt really well planned

Really great trip. Ibrahim and his crew are really super cool. Very relaxed excursion. Food was wonderful. There was chicken and fish, as well as salads and rice. Chilled drinks also available. We first stopped at Orange Bay and then went to two snorkel reefs. Ibrahim was even with a lifebuoy on the snorkeling trips, which the unsafe swimmers could hold on to. You could snorkel without a guide and stay away from the group. Videos and pictures are made above and below the water, which can then be purchased. We happened to see dolphins too. Although I didn't like it that much, as seven boats went after the dolphins. Unbeatable for the price.
As an experienced rider for many years, I can definitely recommend the excursion! It was an absolutely unique experience. We galloped with the horses through the desert towards the sea, bathed in the sea and even swam in the deeper water. The horses are really absolutely good, they weren't even frightened and were always easy to handle (even at a straight gallop). I never write reviews, but the recommendation is really important to me.
Great trip with lots of activities, Ibrahim and Mohamed took great care of all guests ... Snorkeling was really heavenly and the stop at Orange Bay was just beautiful ... you should see A DREAM ... Highly recommended ...
Everything was planned by az ... it was a lot of fun. The team was super attentive and courteous. Absolutely recommendable for the money ... Ibrahim was the snorkel companion and he was really great ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The driver picked us up late at the hotel but despite that everything went well. We even got to see dolphins. The meal was good.
