One of the best experiences here in Hurghada. The pick-up service was on time and the journey there was also very pleasant... Arriving on site, everyone (depending on the language they speak) is assigned a diving instructor and given a simple introduction to diving. Then you drive to the first spot and learn basics like pressure equalization and hand signals... then some photos are taken and afterwards you can look at them and buy them if you want (20 € per person many photos and videos) then there are appetizers and a very tasty lunch... Then at the 2 dive spot everything is a bit more relaxed you can dive more freely (of course accompanied) and just enjoy the underwater world. Definitely worth it Have fun :)

Eine sehr schöne Erfahrung! Muss mann auf jeden fall gemacht haben wenn mann in Hurghada ist, Preis/ Leistung nicht zu übertreffen. Von der Abholung bis zur Rückfahrt alles Perfekt. Tolle Menschen, sehr leckeres Essen und auch eine sehr gute Erklärung wie alles zu bedienen ist. Für mich der noch nie vorher getaucht ist eine Erinnerung fürs Leben

Great tour and super value for money. Pick up was arranged via what’s apps. Driver arrived on time. Cruise is spacious. All cruise members are so professional, friendly, helpful and responsible. Highly recommended!!!

Transfer worked great, crew tried very hard, snorkeling spots and the island were really beautiful. The food was also very tasty.

A good trip with 3 and lunch, drinks and fruit stops. Attentive staff. I can recommend!
