My girlfriend and I have just got back from 2weeks in Sharm and thanks to Sinai Safari we had an amazing time! We had spoken to the reps in our Hotel and looked at trips with them but I'm glad I went with Sinai safari as best value for money great personal touch amazing local knowledge not pushy in anyway and so friendly and the guides that were provided for the trips we book were amazing and made the whole experience stress free and so friendly.

If I return to Sharm I will def use Sinai Safari Adventures again

After booking all our trips with Tim and Janet last year, there was only one company we were booking with this year Sinai Safari Adventures! Booked to do the total desert experience with our friends and their young daughter and Janet arranged that we would have a private group. We were picked up from our hotel and headed to the quad centre. The quads were brilliant our guide (can't remember his name unfortunately) was great, taking us through various paths and "rat runs" always making sure we were together at all times. The camels, show and stargazing we're amazing before being dropped off back at our hotel.
When we return to sharm hopefully next year we will again be using Sinai Safari Adventures for all our trips.
Ignore your hotel reps and their vastly inflated prices and book through Tim and Janet, you won't be disappointed!

After spending so much time comparing on trip advisor we decided to choose Sinai safaris. Prior to going we sent a couple of emails asking some general questions and also whether we could have a price list. The emails were responded very quickly, always the same day and they had no hesitation in providing us with a price list to make conparisons. We then scheduled a time to meet when we arrived. After comparing prices with our hotel (which were twice the price!) we went ahead with our meet with Tim and Janet. They were lovely from the offset. We had a good chat before we even started talking about the tours and we could have easily spent much longer with them just chatting away! We organised 2 trips with them; the total experience and the Tiran boat trip. They were more then happy to let us pay part of the money and the rest on the day of our trip. Janet also suggested that whilst we could still get the deal of total experience, we could break up the quad biking from the desert show and stargazing as it can be a long day. This was such a good idea! You get quite dusty from the quad biking and it can be quite exhausting. So they asked us what time we would like to go quad biking and suggested earlier is better as it is much quieter then. We asked to be picked up at 8am and there was no problem with this. It even turned out it was just me and my boyfriend doing it with the guide Aladdin. I'm pretty sure most other companies would have rescheduled it so there was a few people on it at the same time. Just being us, was incredible, especially at that time in the morning, as we ony saw about 2 other people in the desert so it actually felt like a desert! It also meant we could go much faster as we didn't have to follow any other guests. Aladdin was very funny and caring. He happily took pictures and videos throughout, as well as giving us lots of information about the desert and Bedouin lifestyle.
The desert show and stargazing we did 2 days later and it was such a good entertaining experience. The food was tasty and it's buffet style so you can go back for more if you're still hungry. Making the bread with the bedouins was really good and you got to take home your own tasty bread! It was so nice that all the other tour companies had left by then which made it very personal. It was really good being able to do the camel ride there as well as it meant all holiday we were able to say no to other ones where we have heard many horror stories! at least with Sinai we knew we were very safe and wouldnt have to pay to get off! the guide also walked beside us the whole way which made me feel so much safer instead of just the bedouin people leading us off. Driving there at night really showed us how different the quad biking could have been- we were surrounded by them! Stargazing was beautiful and definitely worth doing as you can't see the sheer vast of stars back at your hotel.

Our final trip, the boat trip to Tiran island was incredible and by far our favourite! Get an underwater camera! You are surrounded by fish! The boat was spotless and again the guide was extremely polite and helpful. He gave us so much information and helped everyone with their snorkels and even when people were feeling a bit sea sick gave us things to make us better. We felt so safe with them, which I appreciated the most. Not being a fantastic swimmer I was originally a little worried but this soon disappeared! There was always the ring to grab onto if needs be aswell. Looking at other boats aswell we had less than half the amount of people they did which meant you could always be seen by the guide and you always had a space to sunbathe on the boat!

I would definitely suggest you use this company. The guides were always great and they all wear yellow tops which really helps when they're collecting you, they are always on time (most the time early), speak very good English and most of all we always felt safe. A real credit to the company. The last thing you want on your holiday is worrying you've paid and they won't turn up, or feeling like the guides are being pushy which is very common with other companies.

Finally, thank you Tim, Janet and all the guides for such a wonderful experience. We hope to be back and will not hesitate in recommending you to friends and family. Thank you also for your very caring call on our last trip to ensure everything went well and wishing us a safe flight. To potential customers, I strongly suggest you use this company. You may find one a few pounds cheaper but I can guarantee you won't feel as safe and it won't be as personal. Happy holidaying! Katie and Carl.

Just got back from Egypt and have to write a review about the trip to Tiran Island with Sinai Safari Adventures. Tim and Janet who run the company are very experienced and helpful with any questions you may have.

The trip itself was an amazing experience. The guides were knowledgeable about the area and answered any questions that you had.]

Please be aware that this is a trip that is at the hottest time of the day, so you definitely need your suncream and water, although drinks are included throughout the day.

The trip stops at three sites, two around Tiran Island itself and one on the way back to the marina of Namma bay.

The coral is amazing to look at so close up and the fish were plentiful. I have to say that we were a little disappointed at the size of the fish further out in the red sea, for some reason we were both expecting them to be bigger than what you can see off the piers at the numerous hotels along the coast line.

Having said that, the trip was good value for money. There are, however a couple of things that I hope can be taken on board to make the trip that little bit more special.

The food, we cannot understand as to why everyone thinks that you need hot food of a lunch time, which consists of the staple Egyptian favourite, pasta, rice and 'meat'. Surely in that intense heat, sandwiches and salad would be preferable.

Also after talking to several guests who have been to Sharm before, the other side of the island is spectacular for snorkelling.

There are several excursion companies to choose from in Sharm, and although Sinai Safari Adventures are British owned and run, doing something a little different from the rest would set them apart.

All in all the trip was excellent and when we return to Egypt we would definitely seek out this company again.

Thanks for helping to make our stay a memorable one.
