My husband and i returned earlier today - around 4 pm - from tiran island
beautiful place and good service all in all that it actually compelled me to write them a review
we had been disappointed in our first trip with a different excursions office so we weren't so sure if we even wanted to do another excursion in Egypt and we were very blunt about our prior experience with that other company when we booked our trip from their old market office. the owner - bebo- was very nice to us and he said he'd personally take care of our tiran trip.
our car arrived a tad early and waited til we were ready and they took us to the jetty
everyone was friendly to us and as soon as we got on the boat we were greeted with refreshments - just your mineral water and pepsi- the boat was very nice and the bathrooms were clean
we stopped once for snorkeling which was a good experience since the water wasn't as hot as the weather so thank god for that then the boat left to our next snorkeling stop which was at the sunken ship near tiran island the instructors warned us from touching the reefs so we didn't tho they did look tempting
the fish were in a word amazing
then we had our lunch and stopped again for snorkling but we couldn't be bothered and decided to soak some sun instead on the deck
it was a lovely day and we were quite happy with the pricing and the service

3rd trip booked with their office, our first was tiran island 4 days ago, our second was luxor which was even hotter than sharm so bring your sun screen and today we just came back from a private quad trip with a camel ride
our guide was a decent bloke who judging by the level of English language we encountered in Egypt spoke very good English
Down side was the safety instructions and since me and the mrs done quad bikes back home a billion times was a bit of a time-waste.
they gave us free scarfs and wrapped it around our heads cause it gets sandy in the desert - figures, eh ? -, my daughter loved it she said she looked like a bandit
we had our bedouin tea in a tent and we came back on camels
now that was an experience!! when you get up on it and it starts standing up cause its sitting down when you get ontop the animal moves back and forth which was better than any ride i had in amusement parks then we went on our way back to our pickup i asked to see if my camel can run and i was obliged, that however wasnt a very good idea
we had lots of laughs though but we go back to England tomorrow, gonna miss the sun

we had bedouin dinner with them, the owner picked us up with his car and took us to the bedouin tent
he was immensly friendly and funny ( thank you for the flowers) the tent was something else, the lighting the seatings
we had a show aswell that included a folklore show which was done with passion as far as i could tell. the choreography was a tad off but otherwise that show was good, we also had a fire show and that was simply amazing the guy juggled fire like it was cups or something, then we had our buffet style dinner, with chicken, some sort of egyptian meat balls and vegetables the dinner was a bit spicy but good and then we had a belly dancer show. we also booked a couple of other tours with this company but this one really stood out.

Had a good day with them doing quad bikes, it wasn't a big group and the safety gear was top notch, our guide was good he explained how to use a quad bike to a lady who had no idea whatsoever on how to operate one, he patiently kept waiting for her in the first 10 or so minutes of our trip
the bedouin tent was good and i bought some bedouin made cheap jewllery for a cheap price for the mrs.
if you want some good quads experience i suggest that you go with this company

this was my 2nd experience with this company, the first was ras mohammed but that was 6 or so months ago
the pickup was on time and we didn't have to wait long before we got to the safari center
the guide was more than friendly and he explained everything to the last detail , the bikes themselves were cleaned prior to our arrival and like new , unlike some we've seen on the way.the bedouin tent was also nice and the people there were very friendly and the sunset view was just breathtaking, all in all it was a very good trip and i seriously recommend this company, they're friendly, their prices are good and their website is easy to deal with.
