I've left it far too long to review this. Huge apologies I thought I'd already done it I've raved here there and everywhere about or Sharm Happy Tours experience. Lido was fantastic, he put up with and professionally dealt with all of my pre holiday questions via email. He had us met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. He called me to check we'd arrived OK and to apologise for not being there personally to collect us!
We booked 3 trips with him, The Fantastic Four, Luxor by Plane and All day boat trip with lunch and snorkelling Tiran Island. Were given a trip on a glass bottom boat for free.
The fantastic four was amazing, loved Quad Biking, but wasn't as keen on the Camel ride! It is better than described on the website, do it!
The day trip to Luxor was incredible and you really must go.....Fruits our guide was so knowledgeable, our mini bus was perfect roomy and air con was a godsend! Our driver was excellent at making sure mossies stayed out as well as the sun, even when parked up. He'd close the curtains to keep the heat etc. out!
The boat trip to Tiran island wasn't particularly pleasant, our hired equipment was old. and unfit for purpose. The boat staff were awful, making no attempt to interact and I include the dive leaders and captain. No info was given and not once were we asked if all was OK? We were pretty much left to our own devices. The weather was great and lunch as far as my Husband was concerned was nicer than the hotels food, so he was happy. We saw some lovely coral & fish when our snorkel's worked momentarily. We got fab tans!
We mentioned to Lido that we weren't overlie impressed whilst he drove us to another trip we were going on and he was clearly unhappy with those he relies upon to ensure that the trips he provides are enjoyed to the utmost by his customers.
He went out of his way to book us on another boast trip, this time to Ras Mohammed National Park. We paid nothing except for the permit to visit the National Park payable by all visitors. Our equipment was included, as was lunch and transfers to and from our hotel to the boat.
Friends we met had awful experiences with hotel Reps who were rude unhelpful and downright incompetent, the complete opposite of Lido.
Book with confidence, fantastic value fro money and reliable too.
Many thanks Lido, and staff!
