What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Sinai Jeep Safari, Abu Galum Snorkeling, Camel Ride and Bedouin Lunch

Snorkeling in the Red Sea

Start your day with a two-hour jeep safari from Sharm el Sheikh to the amazing Colored Canyon. Along the way, keep your eyes open for the local wildlife, including Nubian ibex, red foxes and striped hyenas.

Then it's time to snorkel the reef gardens of the Blue Hole, arguably Egypt's most famous dive spot. You will have around 30 minutes of snorkeling time. Then dry off with a camel ride through the Egyptian desert before enjoying a traditional Bedouin lunch. The camel ride lasts for approximately 1.5 hours.

In the afternoon, you'll travel to the Bedouin village of Dahab for some shopping. Here you will find a large selection of souvenirs such as papyrus prints, brass lamps, jewelry, perfumes, leathers and inlaid boxes, all at prices generally cheaper than in Sharm el Sheikh. You will have 45 minutes to an hour to search out some bargains.

Please note the order of the activities is subject to change as required by local conditions.

An unforgetable experience!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2009

You should probably be fairly adventurous for this! But insist on skipping the shopping.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2010

This is definitely worth doing especially if you are lucky enough to have an excellent guide as we did. If you stop at the perfume shop, please make sure you watch while the perfume you selected is being put in the bottle as I bought one specific fragrance and when I got home I realised it was something else! The snorkeling was very good but if you are not an excellent swimmer make sure you wear a life jacket and remember to bring your own equipment if you do not like surprises!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2009

We were expecting to go in an open top 4 x4 jeep over sand not in the back of a closed jeep. Loved the snorkeling and camel ride. Was surprised to find that we had to hire equipment for snorkeling at additional cost, and to be taken to places where we were being sold to and felt pressured into buying. Overall the trip was good and so was the guide.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2010

It was ok until we got to the snokeling as we had already paid a lot of money for the trip and it wasn't stated that you have to pay a lot of money to do the snokeling by hiring the wet suits, etc. I think details like that should be stated. If we'd known we wouldn't have gone. I would never go again.
