We had booked 4 excursions with this company before we went to Sharm and have really mixed feelings as some were excellent and some terrible.
Camel Ride and Bedouin Tea (5th of March 2013) - Excellent:
This trip was very well executed thanks to the guide Hesham the most professional and pleasant person we met in Egypt. We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the desert where we enjoyed approx. 30 minutes ride on a camel and then relaxed in a Bedouin tend whilst having a complimentary tea. The guide had told us about the Bedouin ways and then we climbed a small mountain to admire sunset in the desert.
Cairo by Bus (4th of March 2013) - Terrible !!!
This trip was a total waste of time as almost everything went wrong from the start to the end. We were picked up from our hotel about 40 minutes late and taken to the bus which did not make a positive impression as it was old and dirty in and outside. We were then told that we had to travel with a Russian group and there was only a handful of English speakers on board, however we were provided with a dedicated guide who unfortunately was rude, unpleasant and seemed upset when asked about anything. We arrived at the Egyptian museum about 2 hours later that planned and were allowed only 1 hour to visit which wasn't nearly enough. Then we were taken to a riverside restaurant by boat which supposed to be an option but we were all made to take it regardless if you wanted it or not. The lunch itself was good.and relaxing. After lunch we were taken to Giza where we wasted time visiting papyrus workshop and then given only 45 minutes at the Pyramids and another 40 minutes to visit Sphinx (there was no time restriction in the papyrus shop). Due to the limited time we did not manage to see inside the smaller pyramid which was included in the ticket. Then we were taken to a perfume shop where we wasted some more time listening to a sales pitch in which nobody was interested in any way. During the whole trip we were treated worse than a bunch of unruly school kids on a badly organized day out.
Sharm City Tour (1st of March 2013) - Good:
Good way to find you way round the city.
Quad Biking (6th of March 2013) - Poor:
The trip was poorly organized, although I was picked on time then when taken to the Quad biking place in the desert I was left to fend for myself as everyone else spoke only Italian. The ATV's were in poor condition, crash helmets were not available and the pace was too slow. Better go for a private trip with another company if you want to really enjoy quad biking.
Glass Boat (3rd of March 2013) - Average:
We were picked on time and taken to harbor where we were joint with a Russian group. The guides on the boat spoke only limited English but you don't really need a lot of commentary whilst looking at coral reefs and fish. Generally good tour but could be better.
Over all if I had to book again I would wait with the booking until in Sharm as some excursions are better booked at the hotel you're staying as there is a greater chance to go with the people you know which makes the whole experience much more enjoyable.
