The whole organisation of the trip was very good. We saw a lot of things in quite a short time which was a bit rushy, especially that the gudies took us to some not incalculated places where you can buy local crafted souvenirs (which are the same quality as in the bazaars but way more expensive).
The guides were highly qualified and interesting. We would like to highlight the tour guide we had on our Nile Cruise 'Ahmed Moussa' for his easy going and friendly behavior while sharing and explaining tons of knowledge and answering all our questions.
Altogether we enjoyed the trip very much but the Hotel in Hurghada was definitely not the right choice for us as it was not that clean in our room. Also it is made for families rather with children which is not too enjoyable for a couple.
We quite regreted a bit that we were planning to go from Aswan to Hurghada by car as it was a very long ride.
We would also like to mention that our Airline lost our suitcase when we first arrived in Egypt and Habiba was very helpful and tried to call them and organise it back to us. Unfortunately the luggage is still missing but we definitely could count on Habibas help!
Nice and clean place, food was ok.
Very clean and nice boat. The stuff was super friendly. The pool on the upper deck is amazing but a bit small. A bit strange that you have to pay for the coffee and tea for breakfast. But the buffet was amazingly decorated and with high quality and delicious food!
Altough it is a very nice and huge hotel with beautiful decoration, the rooms are not even close to the ones on their website. The rooms on the ground floor the poorest ones, with not only super basic furniture, but also hygienic problems and canalisation smell. We had to ask several times for for a new room, which was better, but still not as on their website. It is more a quantity then a quality place, which might be a good fit for certain families with children, but not for anyone with higher standards (eventough we didn't expect western standards there)
It was an amazing experience to discovery scuba diving but also a but scary as the safety instrucion was like a 10 minutes talk in a big group. We also could only dive once because some one of us had ear pain from the pressure change of diving so quickly. Also the communication of when who goes to prepare and dives was missing. But grat boat, beautiful reef, nice food and friendly stuff.
