Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Sharm el Sheikh Airport Private Arrival Transfer. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We were met at the airport on time and escorted through passport control courteosly with the help of the Viator member of staff. The driver was waiting for us outside. The bus was very roomy and comfortable, and we we re given some useful information about the localarea on route. The transfer itself was efficient. The staff were friendly throughout. My only negative comment would be that when we reached our hotel the Diator rep took a photo copy of our return flight details without asking us. He also seamed to hang around at the hotel desk with us for a bit too long. Overall I was pleased and would rate the experince as 8/10. Regards David
The representative was not waiting for us when we arrived. Just as I was pulling out our confirmation sheet to call for assistance, he came up to us. Not the best start. The guide took us to the van and we were driven to the hotel. The private drive made it quicker than if we'd had to wait for others to be included. That was good. This representative did not appear to be particularly focused and did not help us with our luggage. Because I've had only good experiences with Viator in the past, I still recommend using this company.
Our guide got us through the visa process and security in less than 10 minutes! Felt like we had special treatment. Got us to our hotel and made sure we didn't have any problems at the desk. Good service!
Absolutely delighted with welcome from Viator rep as Sharm airport can be intimidating and confusing, even though I have been before. This was first time without my husband, however, and was travelling with a female friend. Viator rep was professional, and I would highly recommend. Not so sure about our escort on the transport, however, perhaps a communication problem, but what bit of no did he not understand? We had no wish to meet him later or go anywhere with him.
Hadn't been to Egypt before, so despite hearing that taxis were very cheap and easy to haggle with, decided to arrange transport between the hotel and airport before we left. Glad that we did, as it provided a very hassle-free arrival and departure. We were met by the rep while we were still queuing at immigration. He said he would wait by the luggage carousel for us. Luckily, our queue was inching forward very slowly towards the counter, so he ended up coming back to see if there were any problems. When I got to the desk, I was given a "Spanish Inquisition" because I have a Muslim name, yet I have a British passport - I was asked about my parents names, family history etc etc and all the while, this was holding up the queue. Our Viator rep, seeing what was happening, stepped in and explained everything to the immigration officer, who then stamped my passport and sent us on our way.
Very fast and efficient service. The company were waiting in the airport. Not the cheapest way to do it, but definitely worth while.
A rep of the company met us as soon as we got off the plane. He had our immigration forms ready for us and guided us quickly through all the red tape. Introduced us to our taxi driver who made sure we were settled at our hotel before leaving us. Excellent service. Would recommend and definitely use again.
We were through customs very quickly and it took a while to be met. No problems after that though the reception was friendly and informative.
Great for piece of mind to know that there is someone there at the other end to get you out of the airport safely, and remove the need for haggling with the taxi drivers. Worth noting that the cost is well over double that of a taxi if you're on a budget though.
Definitely worth organising in advance rather than haggling with the local taxi drivers. It was nice to have a friendly face on our first time to Egypt to tell us about it and give us some handy tips.
Not as good as the departure. Person was waiting but just pointed to a line and spent more time talking with a colleague. Ride to hotel they got the wrong one and had to turn around and go back, even after confirming before we left airport.
Having read so many excellent reviews on how people were assisted with visas and sped through passport control - well I must have just picked the wrong driver! When I asked advice as to whether I needed a visa he shrugged his shoulder and pointed me towards passport control as I waited with everyone else to have my passport stamped. The whole time my driver was in the distance deep in conversation on his mobile phone My star rating would be no more than 2/3
The operator had not recieved the booking from Viator and were therefore not expecting us. Their rep at the airport was very good and helped us sort this glitch so it wasn't the excellent service that we have had in the past but was sorted eventually.
