These are the only three words you will need to help you plan, support and carry out your wonderful excursions.
It was our 1st time in Egypt and with all the bad press, and we were a little apprehensive, but all our fears over were soon put aside There was no trouble at Sharm or any of the other destinations we visited.
Having never visited Egypt or booked excursions in and around the area of Sharm El Sheik before we were pretty nervous until we met Shazly.
Before leaving for Sharm, we had researched via the net and decided on Sharm Days Out. After two days in Sharm I phoned Shazly and arranged a meeting. He arrived promptly by car and we visited his office/shop. On 1st impression, he was very friendly, helpful and answered all our questions. He told us all the positive as well as the negatives points of the excursions. We booked Quad biking, day visit to Cairo by plan, dolphin show, glass boat, parasailing and an overnight visit to mount Moses.
For the Quad biking you will be picked up and returned to your hotel. Take your own scarf and sunglasses – if you do not have sunglasses the will provide safety glasses for free, but the scarf you will need to buy. It total it will take about 3hrs. The day trip to Cairo started promptly at. 4.30am picked up from hotel and taken to the airport where we joined other day trippers and met by Shazly. He guided our small group on the formalities and wished us well.
After an hour free trouble flight we landed at Cario and were met by a very smiley, joyful, friendly and knowledgeable guide called Hussain. He spoke very good English with a sense of humour.
We boarded a 12 seater and made our way to the Cario Museum. Along the way Hussain talked about Egypt’s past. This was very informative and made History enjoyable.
At the museum, ear phones given, so we could hear the excellent commentary carried out by Hussain. He brought history alive and made a visit to a museum interesting. After the museum we went to river Nile and boarded a river boat. After 20/30 mins we arrived at the pre booked buffet style restaurant where we had a good variety lunch selections, but drinks were extra. Next we visited a registered Papyrus shop showing how Papyrus paper was made and you could purchase if you wanted. This was followed by a visit to the pyramids and Sphinx. There were locals selling things to you, as usual Hussain was there to sort things out. Overall an excellent excursion where we were very safe and learned alot thanks to our excellent guide Hussain.
We left Cario airport at 7pm and landed at 8pm at Sharm, met again by Shazly who made sure that everyone was safe and that we had a great time. Taxi was waiting and we returned to our hotel.
The dolphin show was free if you had booked a day tour to Cario by plane. We were promptly picked up from our hotel and taken to the dolphinarium. The show was OK. It was slow to start as the dolphin would not carry out the instructions given by the instructors. At the end of the show we were brought back to our hotel.
The glass boat and parasailing were in Nama Bay and the overnight excursion to Mount Moses was in St Catherine. Again picked up and returned promptly and safely
Overall I would highly recommend Sharm Day Tour based on their professionalism, helpfulness, trust worthiness, before & after support and all at a very reasonable price.
Other place visited was the very clean blue water but rocky beach, Al Mustafa Masjid and a place called, Hollywood. Where they have a water fountains display on the hour (we were there at 9pm) in the evenings surrounded by shops, cafe and a few life size metal exhibits e.g. terminator, predator etc.
