“A lot of adrenaline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

It is gorgeous! It’s better to combine a visit to the canyon with snorkeling in the Blue Hole. This tour includes visiting canyon, jeep safari, seaside camel riding, Bedouin lunch and snorkeling. You must be rather sportive. I would not recommend people with problems with heart, breath or feet.
Tips: 1. Put on trousers, long sleeve shirt to protect skin, and mountain boots or sneakers.
2. Take some medicine with you (at least, disinfectant napkins).

“Magical Egyptian Canyon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Coloured Canyon is a slot canyon sculpted through iron-rich Sandstone of the Egyptian South Sinai region. A cohesive visual language of dynamic lines, random patterns and warm vibrant colours flows on the raw surface of the Canyon mountain..Extraordinary collage of nature’s elements drawing harmony, unity and variety in chaos.

The trip can be arranged with a beduin from the Camp you are staying in. Make sure you have enough water bottles with you and light cloths, comfortable shoes. for photographers light head-ball tripod and try to keep your hands free for a smooth jumping up and down the Canyon.

best time to go is spring time, better with friends.

“Amazing, must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

A must see, very impressive. We booked an excursion to the Coloured Canyon, they took us from hotel with SUVs and drove to the canyon in the desert. The pity to see were names carved in the canyon by some Russians, you shouldn't do that with such unique nature monuments.

I highly recommend this tour organized by Sharm Touring.. the Coloured Canyon is beautiful and the scenery is stunning. Mohamed Zizo is an excellent tour guide - great enthusiasm and very informative. Other highlights included the Bedouin tea, snorkeling in the blue hole (awesome coral reefs), a camel ride seaside and a stop in Dahab!

Overall, it was a very enjoyable day.. thank you Shazly & Zizo!

“The most beautiful place in Sinai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Thanks for those who recommended me to visit this place! Its really beautiful, feels like you are not on Earth any more. Plus in the end of excursion you can have a tea with Bedouins what I did and really enjoyed. Took this tour from Kenuz Tours including jeep safari, camel riding, tea with Bedouin and snorkelling in Ras Abu Galum and I paid 45$ which is pretty decent amount.
