You MUST use Viator for booking any activity abroad. We have just returned from Egypt (01/04/2014) after booking a snorkelling trip with Viator before we left for our holiday. EVERYTHING went like clockwork, communication was 5 star both from Viator and the Company that took us snorkelling in Egypt. Highly recommended. Joe and Glenda Molloy, Pwllheli, North Wales.
This was the best day we spent on our holiday. The boat and crew were all so friendly and welcoming, the boat was great fun and the snorkelling was out of this world. We saw so many varieties of fish it was incredible. An amazing trip.
After a shaky start from our hotel concerning the pick up (which wasn't Viator's fault - in fact the driver spent extra time looking for us!) - we only had a few pick ups - before we arrived at the boats - sorting out who was on which boat was a bit chaotic but it was finally sorted - off we went - the boat was clean and the crew really friendly - although there was no sign of life jackets and there was no safety briefing!
The day was great fun - we went to 3 different sites for snorkelling - and even managed to see a turtle! - the last snorkelling site was a tad manic and over populated by snorkellers. Lunch was fish with salad and pasta (we didn't eat as we had upset tummies - but everyone else was tucking in). The English on board were a minority (ie 3) but the crew made sure we were included. The loos were nice and clean too!
The crew made a DVD of our day but weren't pushy in making you buy one - and they asked for a tip at the end for the captain and boat staff - which was certainly earned.
Would thoroughly recommend this trip - especially with Viator - a lot cheaper than the hotels' reps are marketing and exactly the same.
This isn't the first trip I've booked with Viator and they never seem to disappoint.
Excellent value for money, the cheapest and the best trip I went on all week, greay hosts on the boat and good lunch provided. A definate must!
Excellent trip and excellent value for money.
Friendly hosts and made it a memorable day foe the wholefamily
Unbelievable for the price! Egypt is a cheap place to travel in general, but this surprised me!
The last snorkeling stop was incredible! It is fairly busy, but it is saturated with wildlife and we saw a giant moray eel (It's head was bigger around than my body!!!)
The food IS a hot meal served on the ship. :) DO IT!
The tour is really good. They provide snorekelling equipment and lunch on the cruise. Though I couldn't do snorekelling but my wife enjoyed it very much. I will definitely reccomend this tour.
The day included pick-up from our hotel, three snorkelling stops (Paradise beach on Gifton Island plus two water stops), and lunch, for £15 each. A bargain. Ship was spacious, the crew friendly and spoke many languages, and the fish were amazing. Would certainly recommended it and would do it again.
This was one of the best days of our whole trip to Egypt. The people were wonderful, the food was great and the snorkeling was awesome. I would recommend it to anyone.
Contacted at our hotel the day before the trip to advise us of pick up time.
The day went perfectly with excellent snorkeling and also many sightings of dolphins.
Nice on board meal and efficient return to hotel. Total value for money.
Amazing! Very cheap for the services provided! We went to three different spots, we had the lunch on the boat and we even saw dolphins! At the end of the day you are so tired that you don't want to know more about snorkeling! Really good!
This trip was well organised and was a really great day out. the three snorkeling stops all were great, the food on the boat was simple but nice and our guides were lovely. They let me have a life jacket as I wasn't a confident swimmer spoke great English as well as German and overall made the day a really great experience. Overall this trip is quite relaxing as you are allowed to go on your own in the water and told when to come back, but be careful of burning anf take planty of sun cream as we used loads and kept reapplying but still got some sun burn on our backs.
Fantastic day. Excellent value for money. A must if you are going to Hurghada
Once we were picked up it was great! The experience was breath-taking - we snorkelled in four, not three, locations - all of which had many boats and snorkellers in - with plenty of opportunities of viewing fish and coral. towards the end the "ice cream boat arrived - yes, ice creams delivered by boat!! Altogether a very memorable day ... except for the pick up! Oh dear! On being picked up at the airport our pick-up time for this tour was confirmed, but nobody appears to have told anyone else. After much panicing and telephone calls, the car eventually arrived to pick us up, and got us to the quayside just in time
Getting on the boat was exciting, then you were just out to the sea. The people that owned the boat were very nice and made you feel relaxed if you were scared about going into the water. They picked the best snorkeling views and it was an amazing experience, and one you'll never forget!
