“Quad biking - don't drink the tea”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Booked with Bobos for an afternoon quad bike ride into the desert with family. The pick up was efficient - we booked a personal guide, far better than the large group with us. The quads were fairly basic but seemed fairly well maintained. Safety briefing and explanation of controls was non-existent but we coped as we are all drivers. The ride out into the desert was great fun and well worth the fee paid. However, the guide was uninterested and the stops along the way are designed to line the pockets of the locals with provision of drinks. DO NOT drink the bedoin tea - this will give you the sh**s as their hygen is non- existant. Go to the loo before you go on the trip as you won't get a chance during.
Trip billed as "watching the sun set" but missed this due to delays in getting going.

“really frindly and best prices.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

we went on a couple of trips with Bobos , we hired a boat for 3 hrs and went snorkeling around the ship wreck and Tiran island and had a school of dolphins around the boat on the way back, it was great, and we also booked the submarine trip around old sharm this was also lovely. and both were worth every penny.

“The speed boat is good but avoid other trips with them”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We haired a speedboat for an hour for just the two of us and it was really good. We had a photographer with us and saw lots of dolphins. However the half day trip to Tiran Island for maximum 12 people was terrible. The people on board didn't speak English and the boy who was responsible for our direction and safety whilst snorkelling only looked about 15 years old, although he said he was 22 (with sign Language - he didn't speak English either). I thought this was a bit worrying if you had any problems. The toilet on board was utterly disgusting and there were't enough uncovered seats. Someone else I spoke to said that she went qua biking in the dessert and because she was sharing a quad bike she was burning her legs. Looking at other reviews now, they seem to be saying the same thing. My advice book through Sharm Club. Thoroughly professional and took care of you on the trips.

“parasailing and the safari”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Thank you to bobos for our trips, and to Nana at the baron palms for organising them for us.
The parasailing trip was brilliant...and the speed boat out there was at speed..epic.
We also had a great laugh at the desert safari and hae some great memories from both trips. You are a great team and easy to access from any sharm el sheikh resort. Fantastic prices too.
Cheers all
Arthur and Lilyana
