    Our guide, Tolba, was an experienced coordinator and made our trip splendid! He satisfied all our needs and was very attentive to our enjoyment. Knowledgeable and helpful, highly recommended :-)

    It was a beautiful day and the resort was amazing. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Our driver stayed with us the whole time and attended to our every need. He was the highlight, honestly! I give it 4 stars just because I was not prepared for all the locals. There weren’t any tourists at all really, and I felt uncomfortable in my bikini. I would recommend this excursion, just be sure to wear a modest swimsuit!

    We traveled go the Red Sea with Muhmound Hakiem and man what an experience he made it for us! He took care of all the back ground requirements so that we could just enjoy the experience! We were bumbed about not getting a chance to boat paddle, bout our tour guide made us quickly forget once he jumped into the sea to teach us how to w Swim! Definitely request him if you make it into Egypt!

    This was an A+ experience! We were informed beforehand how long the drive would be (2+ hrs from Giza hotel), but even the drive was amazing. Since our hotel was a little out of the way, we had a personal driver (Waheem sp?) in a Hyundai :), but still felt comfortable. He pointed out the different communities that were being built for the New Government areas, as well as, the oil and steel factories (their exports). When we arrived at the resort (a little dated), we were given plenty of time to relax in our day room before proceeding to the beach. Waheem was like our personal butler; he made sure we had everything we needed. When we decided to do the tubing in the Red Sea, he set it up, prepaid for us, so all we needed to worry about was having fun! The Lunch buffet was good. Not great, but not bad either. We loved their chicken, they seasoned it perfectly. After eating, we headed back "home", and slept like a log on the way back. It was a pretty darn great day, and I made sure Waheem's pockets reflected that :) Things to remember: It WILL be a long drive from Cairo. With traffic, 2+ hours. W/o traffic, maybe 90mins. It is an all day experience. They picked us up at 8am and we got back at 5pm There may or may not be towels in day room (we did have them), so come prepared or don't be afraid to ask for one. The traffic police DON'T PLAY! Which is ironic in Egypt (inside joke). If they pull you over for speeding, be expected to pay LE1000 fine on the spot. Last note: We were lucky enough to spot Spinner Dolphins while swimming in the Red Sea!! My highlight!

    We had a blast! We went with Tolba (Tony) and Mahmoud Hakeim. It was everything me and my mom needed. After days of sightseeing we were able to enjoy Egypt and RELAX. IT was great. The guides were so helpful and respectful of our wants and space. They took all the pictures we wanted and we genuinely had a great time. It was nice to have a personal room to change, and the food was delicious!

    Just getting away from Cairo to go swimming was a great experience. Waheed, our guide, made sure that we we had a good time. Waheed was fun company, he had lots of fun stories to tell. We were never bored.

    Long drive and no sightseeing. Beach had lots of rocks but water was clear. Room was poor and lunch average.

  • 16-Oct-2022

    Worth the trip. It was a beautiful sunny day. Make sure you have water shoes a little while rocky once you get in the water. The day room was amazing giving the option of patio, water or room

    Arrived with the driver and car we booked, did not chose driver car guide room and lunch. Just the driver and car. Got to the hotel and the reception wanted ID why I have no cue as we were using the beach. Anyway they proceeded in asking for 800le for beach access only. After alot of shouting and whatsapps back and forth with the contracted operator Emo Tours the driver took us up the road to the secluded private beach that provided the same for 250le Nowhere does it say you have to pay for beach access and they never showed me the evidence that it did. Typical Egyptian con. I expected better from Viator. Made a complaint and no response for days. VIATOR a TripAdvisor company should know better.

    Our driver and guide Tolba was amazing!!! He went above and beyond to make our day extra special as it was my birthday ! Prompt on time for pick up 8am and we even stopped to get snacks on the way to the Red Sea. The ride was beautiful and scenic and Tolba interacted with us and answered all our questions about the city which made the drive go by so quickly. The hotel was very nice and clean and our day room was perfect! Tolba also helped us have an enjoyable time in the sea with tips about the less rocky areas to enter the beach from. Extremely relaxing day exactly what I was looking for ! Ask for Tolba to be your guide he will make your trip unforgettable!
