Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
We booked this trip online after seeing previous good reviews. At first, we were very uncomfortable about handing over money without actually meeting the person, however, this was all unnecessary.

On the day of our trip, we were met by a member of the Sharma Excursions team who helped us with our flight to Luxor, where we were met by our guide 'Mahmoud'.

Mahmoud is a real nice guy and a very professional guide, he is polite, friendly and really knew his stuff. He explained everything extremely well and in a manner that ensured we understood. He made sure that we were all okay, if we needed anything i.e drinks, food, money etc, he acted upon it immediately. At all times, he was focussed on ensuring we had a fabulous day.

Our day involved visiting the tombs and temples, having lunch in a lovely restaurant, going to an alabaster workshop, having a boat trip across the River Nile to a small tropical fruit plantation, which I must say on such a hot, action packed day, was a pleasure. We had a tour of the plantation tasting the different fruits picked straight from the tree and then we sat down and had tea (their mint tea is lovely!)and enjoyed fresh bananas - they tasted so good!

We were only small party of 4 and can say a great day was had by all.

Mahmoud is a credit to Sharma Excursions.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Absolutley superb! Went in early August. Payed in local currency the day of arrival. My 11 year old son and myself were picked up on time and looked after through to flight. Met on arrival in Cairo and then treated brilliantly all day. Only 4 of us on the tour (my wife and other son were ill!!). Brilliant guide and driver, very very knowledgable and the access inside the Geza Pyramid park alone is worth using these guys for. We paid for the river trip which I recommend you assume as compulsary. Lunch was excellent. Great value, will definately use again for Luxor next time.

SharmExcursions General Review
We recently visited sharm el sheikh for our honeymoon for two weeks, we booked 5 excursions through Sharm excursions and can honestly say that we were most impressed, we booked 4x4 safari,glass bottom boat,snorkeling trip to Tiran Island,Quad bikes and swimming with dolphins. Every single excursion was fantastic, we were picked up on time for every excursion from our hotel and returned to our hotel afterwards. The sharm excursion reps were friendly and explained rules and regulations for each trip throughly, we really cannot fault them in anyway and would 100% recommend booking with sharm excursions

Thank you Will!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We visited Sharm El Sheikh from 06/10/20114 for 7 nights. once we had arrived in Sharm el sheikh having checked the website & reviews on trip advisor we decided to book all our excursions with sharm excursions & was really glad we booked with them. The 1 day cairo by plane was a great choice as we had considered doing the bus tour but was glad we took this option as it meant less time travelling & more time seeing the sights.
In Cairo our tour rep was Abdul Ghani who was such a genuine, friendly person who had a passion for Egyptian history & made the whole day very interesting and informative for us. He also ensured we were well looked after & went out of his way to make sure everything ran smoothly.
We visitied the Egyptian museum which was really interesting & as there was just so much to see in there our guide made sure we got to know about the most interesting areas in a clear & concise way. We then took the boat ride on the river nile which was very relaxing & had the buffet lunch on a boat restaurant which was nice. Following lunch we went to visit the pyramids which was breath taking & learning the background on them was fascinating to say the least. This was definatly one of the highlights of the trip.Finally we visited the perfume shop which was ok but would have preferred to visit the Grand Bazaar which would have been more fun. We would like to thank Abdul for being such a great tour guide & sharm excursions for arranging the whole trip with great efficiency.
Thanks again

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Went on excursion on 10 10 14 to Luxor I was a bit worried about handing money over to a complete stranger since this was our first time in Egypt but I had no call to we we're picked up at the exact time arranged we went from sharm el sheik to luxor and was met by our guide Marwa such a nice pleasent girl she has a vast knowledge of her country's history and it's people we went to the valley of the kings first and she explained everything about the Pharohs and their people very interesting the things this girl knew was unbelievable from there we went to queen Hatshepsuts temple which was. Very good but I have to say the girl went out of her way to accommodate every body but like most tours you can't please everybody thers always people who want to be Awkward having said that we left to go to Karnack temple this blew me away the size of it the history of it is fantastic I don't want to say too much about this place as it would spoil it for other visitors but most enjoyable later Marwa suggested that we had time to spare before our flight back did we want to go on a boat ride down the Nile we all agreed and off we went down the Nile we stopped at a small Island where the people grew their own bananas and tropical fruit we all got a taste and it was very refreshing after a long hot day it was nice to see how the people worked the Island so thanks to Marwa and sharm excursions for a truly fantastic day

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We have just come back from Sharm and did the one day trip to Cairo by plane. Our tour guide Will was an excellent enthusiastic guide and very knowledgable, his passion for Cairo and Ancient Egyptian history really came across. The pyramids were amazing and surprisingly quiet which meant we were able to admire them and get photos of them without hoards of other tourists in our way. Apparently the tourism in Cairo has been badly effected by the revolution which is all the more reason to go now, I would thoroughly recommend the trip and it will be hugely benefitting all the locals whose jobs who rely on the tourist trade. Its a great trip if you are staying in Sharm and want to see a slice of the real Egypt at a low cost. The plane ride into Cairo in the morning also offers spectacular views of the city and Nile against the backdrop of the desert.

Lots of locals will offer to take photos of you doing silly poses in front of the pyramids and sphinx and all though this can be fun it is worth spending some time just standing there admiring the enormity of it all. It is very easy to start taking lots of photos and forget to take it all in properly. Overall a great trip, Cairo is a buzzing city with loads to take in and to top it off with the pyramids is a perfect end to the day.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We used Sharm Excursions for several trips 4 years ago and were so happy with the service that we came back again for more this year.

We went to Cairo for the day and loved every minute of it. Lilly our guide was amazing. She was super knowledgeable, fun, organised and entertaining. Loved the pyramids and the perfume/oil Bedoin house - thought the papyrus shop was a bit pushy, but interesting to see how it was made.

We would definately used Sharm Excursions again. They do exactly what it says on the tin - and Lilly just added to it. Thank you.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
Me and my partner booked this trip after reading many good reviews on here. Needless to say we were not disappointed! One of the best trips we've ever been on. We were well looked after the whole time. On talking to other people who came to the Bedouin camp via other companies we seemed to have had the best experience. A few complained of being stopped along the way so that locals could try to sell them things, but we never experienced this. A good ride with a short break at the 'echo mountains' once we arrived to the camp we had our camer ride which lasted about 30mins and was great! The guys at the camp made you tea which was quite nice and bottles of water are also provided. The camp was beautifully chilled as the sun set and then food was provided. This was also better than expected! Pasta, chicken, veg, rice, and fizzy drinks. We were told to help ourselves to seconds if we wanted too! Their was then 3 shows - a dancer, a fire show, and a cobra show. All brilliant! We then made our way to the star gazing area where we all got the chance to see Saturn! Amazing!! We then quashed in the dark (not as scary as it sounds) back to the quad base and then we were taken back to the hotel for around 10pm. For £40 each this trip was worth every single penny and I would highly reccomened this company to anyone visiting sharm in the future! This company will always be my first choice when I return :)

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
We have just returned from Sharm last week, I had heard alot about Sharm Excursion from various people, made some enquiries before we travelled and can honestly say we were not disappointed. Our hotel rep advised us not to book with outside agents as they do no have the correct insurance, please do not let this put you off from booking, firstly they they will save you money (expecially if you are a large family) and secondly they are very professional in every way. We booked our Luxor trip for 3 on our 3rd or 4th day using their website, choose our date and paid a 10% deposit per person using paypay. Within a hour we were sent a message confirming a meeting time with their rep and pay the rest in cash. We was a little concerned at first to pay a total stranger cash in advance but went with our instincts. Sami the rep arrived with a Blue Star sign as promised and met us outside our resort, he sat us in his car explained the procedure and handed us vouchers for our trip. We had mentioned on our booking that we did not have the visas in place to fly to Luxor and were informed that these could be arranged on the day. To our suprise he had already bought them and put them and handed them to us, we did not have the money with us (£20 each) to give to him and he said not to worry and to give them to him on the day of the trip, his exacts words were 'If you could trust giving us £398 pounds in advance, the least we can can do is trust you to pay £60'. This completely put our mind to rest, we were collected at 4am on the day and driven to the airport, again Sami explained what would happen and we were met by Marwa the guide in Luxor who gave us a introduction, gave us a brief insight of Luxor first and arranged for water and drinks on route to our 1st stop. Her knowledge of Luxor and history was simply amazing, she made us at ease and explained everything in detail. The Valley of the Kings and seeing Tutankhamans tomb (at £10 extra) was simply breathtaking as per the were the Temple of Hatshepshut and Karnak Temple, some of the tombs are well preserved. The heat did reach 55-57 deg but please do not let this put you off, seeing the ancient history with your own eyes is simply extrodinary. A nice lunch was arranged, followed by more site seeing and then we went on nile boat ride to a small island who gave us organic watermelons - WOW !!!!. We were then driven back to the airport and arrived at our resort by 9pm.
Sharm Excursions are simply the best, my husband booked a 2nd day trip with them and flow to Cairo, again the same service. Thank you to Marwa, Sami and Mohammed for making our trip a memorable one, we will definately use you again in the not too distance future.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked the 1 day Cairo by air trip after reading many good reviews on here and with a fascination to see the pyramids and the many relics in the museum.
Firstly the trip was very good value compared to booking with holiday reps in resort. Secondly everything was exactly as described and ran very smoothly with great flights on Egyptair.
But most of all our tour guide Lilly was absolutely brilliant. She was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited and was a true queen of Cairo, an amazing representative of her people and very warm and friendly and welcoming (she even bought the 4 of us ice cream and water).
As for the sites, a very well organised and fantastic tour of the national museum, nile cruise and lunch, papyrus institute, pyramids, sphinx and bedouin perfume store. Loads of photo opportunities so don't forget your camera and sunscreen.
Lilly made it very clear what was included and what was extra, and had many amazing facts to tell along the way. (The Nile cruise at LE100 each (£9) and horse cart up the mountain to look down on the pyramids at LE250 per couple £22 are both highly recommended.
An amazing trip (as long as you don't mind the early start) and if you are lucky enough to have Lilly as your guide it will be an unforgettable day :) Steve & Maria. Trip today 14.7.14

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This was a great trip. Highlight of our holiday. Ibriham our guide was such a nice genuine guy and stood up for the group when we accidently took photos when we should not have and locals were trying to make us pay.

I would recommend you bring GBP as the local exchange rate works against you it turns out being 12:1 compared to 10:1 which is the rate you get back at the UK so it ended costing a good £20 more pp.

The only negative I would write is that on the website the itinerary said you get to go shopping in Cairo bazaars but this never happened and I had really been looking forward to that - to experience some real Egypt. So that needs to be removed from the itinerary details but overall amazing and again thanks to Ibriham.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
We chose the sunset trip and it was amazing. It was beautiful to watch the sun come down behind the mountains as we zoomed along. It was really warm so I couldn't think how how it would be to do during the afternoon - especially when you have to wear a scarf to protect yourself from the sand!

Definitely worth a go.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We were advised by our guide that the original day we booked was really busy and suggested a day with fewer people. This was really appreciated and our group was only 6. This made the tour much more enjoyable and personal. Our guide, Will, made sure we had the best experience possible from picking us up to the end of the day. It's a long day but worth it for a cultural experience away from touristy Sharm - and take the flight, the bus journey would be even longer!!

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
AMAZING!!!
We went on this tour on 07/05/2014. Me and my parents total 3 people.
I booked the private trip as I was with my parents who, come from Bulgaria and don't speak English, so we needed a bit more flexibility for translation purposes.
What can I say. EVERYTHING went really smooth. The payment and the organisation part was really fast and easy. Very easy transfers from Sharm to Cairo, no hustle at all. Everyone that was suppose to meet us at the different places, our hotel in Sharm, Cairo airport, back at Sharm airport was there, punctual.
Our Guide in Cairo, Will was fantastic. Knew everything about Egypt, the Pyramids, the city Cairo, he was just BRILLIANT.
We started the day with a visit to the Egyptian museum. We learned so much. Saw the entire treasure of Tutankhamun. Then we opted for the boar ride on the nile to get to the restaurant (fantastic experience). The after lunch off to see how papyrus is made. Then to the Pyramids. This was the most fantastic place I have seen. We both the Camel ride and went further into the desert to have a brilliant view of the Pyramids. Then we went to see how Arabic perfumes are made and then back to Sharm.
We loved it. Brilliant experience.
Thanks to our guide Will who made it unforgettable.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
ABSOLUTLY AMAZING! And Lily, our guide was FANTASTIC!

We booked online and paid the Paypal deposit. Then paid the rest by meeting the SharmExcursions team outside our hotel. This may seem odd, but it was perfectly fine :)

We were picked up bright and early at 4:50am from our hotel, and then picked up some other couples from around Sharm, and went to the airport. We got our tickets, and were told where to go when we got to Cairo to meet our guide. We were also told how to get our return flight tickets. All very easy and stress free!


In Cairo we met our guide, Lily. She took us to the mini bus and we began our journey to the egyptian museum. Lily was really friendly and funny - giving us great detail of all the sights we passed on our way. We also stopped off on the way to take pictures of some big mosques.

The egyptian museum is in 'revolution square' and is protected by the armed forces. It's clear the people of Cairo are passionate about their history and traditions, and we felt completely safe here, and during our trip. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the museum, but you could outside and there's plenty to see! Lily guided us around some of the museum explaining a few pieces, and we were able to go on our own for 45 mins after.

We then took a short boat ride across the Nile to our lunch-spot. This was optional at £10, but totally worth it! Lunch was buffet style and had something for everyone as well as some egyptian pastry deserts - nice if you have a sweet tooth!

After lunch it was time to make our way to the pyramids. We stopped off on the way at a Papyrus museum / shop. I recommend buying your papyrus here on your holiday, they are carefully hand painted and very beautiful, the assistants were able to tell the stories behind the pictures too! The majority of other shops sell printed papyrus and aren't as nice in quality.. figures in these can look pixelated and cartoonish!

It was a short drive from here to the pyramids where we had the option to go inside the BIG pyramid or to take a pony/camel ride. We were the only two in our group to take the camels (as a horse rider myself I could see the ponies were struggling to pull three people in a cart, up-hill, in the sand, and felt a bit sorry for them). The camels were lovely and we felt safe up on them. The camel guides took pictures of us with them and of the pyramids from a point a short distance away. A really good experience!! We were then able to go into one of the smaller pyramids and to take pictures right next to a bigger one!

We also saw the Sphinx and the mummification museum. Lily was giving amazing stories and information at every point during our trip. She was our photogrpaher at almost every stop too! She was truly BRILLIANT!

There are people trying ot sell you things everywhere, but they aren't too pushy or rude (in english anyway!). Lily was good at helping them, and us, if anyone wanted to buy from them, especially at the pyramids - we got a solid wooden cat goddess for £2, a total bargain as gift shops sell these for 10x as much!

We then went for some tea and coffee at a perfume factory. We were able to test lots of pure flower oils and had the option to purchase after. These were really reasonable at about £30 for 4 'small' bottles of pure oil which were actually quite big! I bought some small glass bottles at the markets in Sharm and decanted the oil into them as gifts for friends! It's something really different, and the smell lasts all day on your skin! Amazing!

After this, we went back to the airport to catch our flight home at about 7pm. The day was amazing and we learnt so much about egyptian history, the lives of people in Cairo, and their traditions - Lily was incredibly proud of her heritage and it was really beautiful to hear.

Please do visit Cairo from Sharm. This trip is the best value for money of all the excursions we looked at. Our travel operator sold a similar excursion for £180 - but it didn't seem to pack as much into one day as Lily and Sharm Excursions did!

I'd do it again, 10 times! Find out for yourself and enjoy! :)

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Just returned from wonderful holiday in Sharm. Booked day trip to Cairo with Sharm Excursions before travelling and it was the highlight of the trip. Flew from Sharm by scheduled Egyptair flight to Cairo and met by our delightful guide Lily who stayed with us all day. Only 6 people on trip so we had Lily's full attention at all times. Her knowledge of ancient and modern Egypt was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. Be assured there is no threat to safety at any time in Cairo. Tutankhamen exhibit and Pyramids are overwhelming. Thanks Sharm Excursions A1

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
We just came back from Sharm El Sheikh where we have experienced this fantastic Quad biking + camel riding + stargazing experience with SharmExcursions.
Running with a quad in the magic atmosphere of the desert is something amazing.
The guides (Titus and Ibrahim) were so funny, friendly and highly competent. My girlfriend had a problem with her quad and she was immediately helped by an instructor.
We definitely had a great time!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Recently spent the day in Cairo with Sharm Excursions. The trip was incedibly well administrated leaving us very comfortable with the process. Met with Lilly at the airport and her passion, knowledge and cultural awareness was fantastic. Her friendly genuine interest made the tour even better. Cairo' a crazy, bustling city with such variety and diveristy and Lilly made sure we got a true feel for the place but at no time did we feel at risk or uncomfortable - in act we spent some time chatting to locals from all parts of the city - The pyramids were obviously the highlight and we were given a number of excellent "personal" options on how to enjoy the experience which we did thoroughly

A definate thumbs up to the trip - especially Lilly and Mohammed who made us so welcome and really showed us what Cairo can be

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
We had booked an excursion with Sharm Excursions previously so we knew them to be very reliable and generally very very good. Our resort had warned us not to book with other tour operators outside of the resort and this is completely wrong. Sharm Excursions are very reputable and we trust them completely. Our guide this time round was Marwa and she was just lovely. She tailored the day tour of Luxor to our needs and asked us along the way if everything was ok and if we needed anything else. She even went into a store on the way to the Valley of the Kings to get us some cartons of juice. Marwa was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of the Gods and Egyptian Kings and Queens. We loved every moment of listening to her share her vast knowledge. Our lunch was provided and the restaurant Georgina was just lovely. We had a 3 course meal including the most tender shami kebab. The day started at 4am and we got back to our hotel at 9pm but the day was not too long (even for me at 5 months pregnant). There was a fair bit of walking but the walking was at our pace and was not strenuous. Valley of the Kings was simply amazing and we paid the extra 100 Egyptian pounds (about £10) to get into Tutankhamuns' tomb which was well worth it to see the boy king himself and his incredible coffin. We went from there onto Queen Hatshepsuts' temple which was very grand and then we were given the choice of visiting Karnak temple or Luxor temple. We chose Karnak temple (the larger of the 2) and we were not disappointed.
Please, please, please do not be put off of booking excursions outside of your resort as there was no trouble at all certainly in Luxor and please choose Sharm Excursions as they really know their stuff and they are lovely people to spend a day with. We were so glad to have such a brilliant guide in Marwa.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
The Cairo trip was absalutely fantastic! It was well worth the money. Cairo is very safe and I did not once feel scared. My tour guide Lilly was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed her company. The tour rep Mohammed also checked on us during he tour and we laughed and had lots of fun with him. We visited the pyramids they are beautiful. I would suggest people to definatly visit them. We also went on a Nile cruise for £10 which was well worth it, also a buffet is included in the package where the food is tasty. You can also have a camel or horse ride around the pyramids for £10, it is worth doing as u can take stunning photos of the 3 lyramids in line. Overall it was a fantastic excursion and it made holiday. I would advise everyone who wants to visit Egypt to book this excursion and ask for Lilly as your tour guide as she was wonderful to be around. We. Had Ono troubles in Cairo and there is joint to fear. I just want to say a big thank you to Mohammad and Lilly for making that day one of the best days of my life!

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
We booked the Camel ride, bedouin dinner and star gazing as well as the glass bottom boat before we travelled. Had a fab time. Very well organised. Arrived at our hotel bang on time to collect us.
Just perfect . As as vegetarian I was suprised how much I could eat at the dinner. The camel ride was an experience.

very good value for money . Thank you !

Transfers in Sharm
Traveling with my son - a wheelchair user, it was vital that we were collected from the airport with no problem. 'Sharmexcursions' driver held up a card with our name on arrival and was very helpful - same on the return journey two weeks later. Very reliable, we will use them again.

SharmExcursions General Review
My family and I went to Sharm last year at the end of January, I pre booked lots of excursions with Sharm Excursions and paid my deposit online. When we got to the hotel and went to the welcome meeting, we were given horror stories about outside excursion companies, i told my wife and family not to worry but deep down it worried me, as i had to meet a man outside the hotel and hand over more than £500 in cash to pay the balance for our trips, which were many and varied. anyway I went through with it and was given my vouchers for our trips. and I can honestly say that they were brilliant, we were picked up on time for every one of our 8 excursions, and we always seemed to have the best buses of all the people being picked up from our hotel, the drivers and guides were all first class. 2 friends who were on holiday with us decided they would like to come on the snorkeling trip just to sunbathe on the boat I asked about it on the trip the day before and the guide rung the boss and passed the phone to me, it was sorted in seconds "just pay the guide on the bus when you are picked up", no late booking surcharge or nonsense like that just polite and efficient, i have just booked today to go again this january and i will be booking my scuba diving with Sharm excursions. Do not believe what you are told in the welcome meetings the only reason you have to go outside the hotel to pay and be picked up is because the other companies won't allow them to get on the hotel grounds as they don't pay for the privilege. Sharm Excursions in my opinion are a great and well run company and I would recommend anyone to use them you won't be disappointed

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our guide, Sami, was excellent. He was very attentive and spent a lot of time with us, explaining things and, on the return trip home, gave us lots of local information and answered all our questions. Sami was brilliant. After a short trip into the desert we first had a camel ride which felt longer than 20 minutes. The camel ride took us to the Bedouin tents where we drank tea and helped make the Bedouin bread. After that we climbed a very small mountain to watch the sun set. Although there were other groups of people there, this was very peaceful and tranquil. We then returned to the tents for Shisha and Bedouin food which was lovely. A whirling dervish dance and fire dance followed, both of which were excellent. Then, the highlight for me was the star-gazing. There were telescopes set up to see the moon and Venus and a different guide who was exceptionally knowledgeable talked us through the main stars and constellations, pointing them out with a strong laser. He answered a lot of questions with ease. The sky was so clear you could see the Milky Way, which I've never seen, and even some shooting stars.
If you do go, remember to take a tip for the camel boys.
A brilliant trip with the best guides ever.
Thanks again to Sami,

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Just came back from Egypt and we had the most amazing day in Cairo thanks to SharmExcursions. They pickep up us from our hotel on time 4:55 and took us to the airport, where they also helped us to get the visa to go to cairo (which nobody acheck after, but you need it). Once in Cairo we met our AMAZING guide Maya, she was so lovelly that even stoped to buy us some breakfast on our way to the National Museum (it was no included but she was so nice to do it for us). On the Museum we had a really nice time again with Maya explaining to us the most important things (which I just saw again on tv Channel 4) , then the Highlight of the day THE PYRAMIDS,I can't describe here how amazing it is!!! We did the camel ride and he had the time of our lifes. Maya (our guide) and Reda (the driver) tried their best to make our day amazing, and they did!!! Thanks again Maya and Reda! there's nothing to fear in Cairo, we fell safe all the time, they really looked after us. So don't be scared Go to Cairo!!!!

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
Booked this trip and went on Tue the 29th of October 2013. Me and my partner were unsure about this trip and almost cancelled last minutes due to recent troubles in Cairo. So glad we did not do this as we went ahead and loved it. Ahmed was our tour guide and met us at Cairo airport and he took us to the museum, where he had so much interesting information to tell me and my partner and also another guy who was on the tour. We then had a boat trip on the Nile to get to our lunch. We then went to the pyramids, and wow is all i can say. You cannot appreciate them till you see them yourself and we got them to ourselves as there was hardly any tourists there.... Perfect time to go! After this we were then taken to a shop that made oils made from flowers and got to smell the lotus oils and told how they made then. After this we were taken to be shown how the papyrus paper, excuse the spelling was made. We were then taken back to the airport to go back to our hotel in Sharm. We had no problems what so ever and we loved our trip. If you have a doubt, don't, go for it, the experience is amazing. A big thank you to Ahmed that made our trip comfortable and memorable. We cannot wait to book up again and see the valley of the kings next time.

Perfect trip by courtesy of Sharm Excursions. Everything well organised. Punctual collection from hotel, plane in european standards (but you can take water on board). Will was my man Cairo. Great dude with lot of knowledge and good humor. Museum was absolutely brilliant, too bad you can't take photos. Pyramids don't have to be recommended but it's worth to take a camel trip into the desert for great view and photo opportunities. Safety wasn't even my concern, apart from few tanks that I found more as another attraction (no pictures allowed though) than threat, people seemed to be living their ordinary lifes (cultural shock was another positive for me). All in all great trip (thanks again Will!) and I highly recommend Sharm Excursions and Egypt in general. Peace!

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
We met our rep at the beginning of the holiday at the Hotel entrance as agreed and paid our deposits and received our tickets - he also advised us what we need to take on each trip - on this trip we just need scarves but these were availabe to buy on arrival

The young man who accompanied us on this trip was brilliant (didn't get his name but he was from Alexandria?) and he really made the trip special.

The camel ride was excellent, if a little uncomfortable!! The bedouin tent was a great experience, the food was smashing and the entertainment was great (I'm running out of adjectives!!)

The sky was so clear and my husband and daughter were amazed to be able to see the Milky Way

All in all a great trip, would definitely recommend

Sharm Desert Horse Ride
Me and my Fiance booked this trip and it was fantastic. I was a bit wary as I am an active rider and my fiancé had never been near a horse! Omar gave us horses suitable to our experience, the horses have a lovely temperament and do exactly as he says. granted they may be a little skinny but maybe our horses are just fat?? Within 5 minutes my fiancé and Omar were best of friend and off cantering in the desert!! A great experience and Sharm Excursions reps are brilliant, they came to our hotel, sorted everything out and picked us up always on time. I will never book with holiday reps again when you have excellent service like this. Well done Sharm Excursions!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Travelled to Cairo with my children (8 and 5 yrs) and my mother on 31st July 2013. We were met at the airport by our tour guide Will who was fantastic, knowledgeable and excellent with the children. Our first stop was Cairo museum, no sign of any disturbances, but there was a strong military presence which neither myself or my children found troublesome. The museum was fantastic, it was a shame as only a hand full of tourists were there to appreciate how brilliant it is. We travelled down the Nile by boat to our restaurant which provided an excellent lunch, then it was on to the pyramids. We found the pyramids amazing and went inside a small one to see the chambers, then it was on to the sphinx . We also had time during the day to visit papyrus and perfume stores and purchased some lovely gifts. We had been a bit worried about going on the trip due to the recent events, but Cairo was safe and the trip was an experience which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to Mohamed and all the team for a wonderful day which was the highlight of a fantastic holiday.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Travelled to Cairo for the day with my partner and our 8 year old son on Thursday 18th July, We met Will our tour guide at the airport and first went to the museum where there weren't many tourists. We pretty much had the museum to ourselves which was nice as we got to see everything there quicker than if it was busy. Will then took us for a Nile river boat ride (extra charge) which was enjoyable. We then stopped off for a lovely lunch (included) and then travelled to the pyramids which were amazing!! We went inside a small one which was good fun and enjoyable. We then come across a lady selling wooden souvenirs, we got 3 well made and good size souvenirs of Tutankhamen, sphinx and the queen for £5 which was the asking price from the lady, it was so good that we got 2 lots for gifts. We then went on horse into the desert to take pictures of the pyramids, it was amazing and my son loved it. The pyramids were also really quiet and we were the only 3 tourists there which is a shame! This place needs tourists to see how amazing it really is! We had so much time spare at the end of the day so we went to a papyrus art gallery and the artwork was incredible, so good that I ended up buying 3 paintings. When we finished there we headed back to airport to fly back to Sharm. Throughout the day our tour guide Will was the best, he answered all our questions and made us laugh all day. Also a big thing on everyone's mind who is thinking about travelling to Cairo is.... IS IT SAFE? I can say that Cairo felt very safe, there was no sign of any trouble. Although the army's presence is very strong, they are very friendly and give you a sense of security rather than being intimidating. We all would like to thank Mohamed for making this trip happen and Will for making the day special and personal as it was more of a private guide tour. We hope everyone starts to travel to see this amazing place

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
What a fantastic and exciting day! Me and my boyfriend want to visit Cairo and we choose this lovely company who send us their best tour guide, Lily and their best driver, this is very important, because the traffic is hectic. Lily was very funny, enthusiastic and full of knowledge about Egypt, Cairo, Pyramids. This amazing day started with a little tour of Cairo, then visiting the Egyptian Museum, arriving at the Papyrus Institute, buying some real papyrus, and finally the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx. What an awesome feeling seeing the Pyramids and finding out their mystery. For a panoramic view of Pyramids we had to ride the camels, what an exciting journey! Our trip day finishes with a Bedouin tea and smelling a lots of beautiful fragrances.
Was a perfect day with lovely Lily who took a lots a pictures of us make us feeling specials. Such a understanding people, because during the day I have changed my mind a lots of times. Great memories and great people! Thank you for this incredible moments! :)

Excellent day with our Private tour guide, Shayma,,, I think thats her name..:-)
She was brilliant and very educational telling us all about the egyptian history. Very entertaining which made our day more interesting in the boiling heat of the egypt summer.
We both have great memories to bring back home and will be using Sharm Excusions again on our 3rd trip back to Egypt.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Definatley the best day of our two week holiday. We got picked up around 4.30am to be taken to sharm airport. The staff were friendly. Well organised and most importantly on time. After the chaos of the airport we were met upon our arrival by our guide "Wil". What a lovely, genuine and helpful guide he was!He even bought up water and Ice creams in Cairo aswell as taking photosfor all our party whilst at the sights. The whole day was planned out excellently and everything was just as described at time of booking. I would definatly use sharmexcursions again when I return to Egypt, I plan to visit Petra and the valley of the kings.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Great Trip. Saw so much in the trip. The guide could not have been any more knowledgable if he tried. Always had an answer to the question. We were only on a bus for a minimal time. The group we were with were friendly which made it even better. We were taken up the Nile to a Banana Farm where we got to try the Bananas and Water mellons they were growing. Got back at a good time in the evening. Thew plane compony they were used were very good. Free drinks on a budget airline A*!!

Thanks to everyone that made our tour such a great one!!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
It was a very long 24 hours but very much worth it. We were picked up around 2am and dropped back 24 hours later.

The drive was very long (7 hours) and could have done with being left alone to sleep on the bus rather being woken up so much. It would be good to do the plane version but was cool seeing all the check points sourounded by tanks and guns.

The tour was good as we got to see lots of different parts of the city. The tour guide Sami was very good and keeping everyone awake after such a long trip. Nothing was too much problem for any of the staff. We asked to change our tour from a 2 day trip to 1 as we thought we had seen enough. Not a problem at all, With a refund for the difference.

Only thing i didnt like was the food. Found it was rather cold so upset my stomach!! Great tour Great People!!

Sharm Desert Adventure 6 * 1
This tour was 1 of the best I have ever been on. I thought we would get 15 minutes on the quad bikes. How wrong was I. We were driving through the desert for at least a hour and half. the other parts of the tour was very good especially the snake charmer part of the show. Then a half an hour drive back to the coach. A* for this tour. If I had another day I would have done it again!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Picked up from our hotel (Falcon Hills) at 1.15am by Sami. e Great coach which was very spacious and cool considering the temperature outside (Very hot!!)Cold drinks and ice creams were provided free of charge throughout the day
So we traveled for around 7 hours and had to stop at borders which was not really a problem.
The day was truly an experience, such beautiful views and the opportunity to visit one of the seven wonders of the world.
We visited the Egyptian museum and out tour guide Will.I.Am was a star, always on hand if I needed anything and very informative.
There were a few extra sections to the excursion which were pleasantly unexpected such as the perfume factory where pure essence is able to be purchased and a gallery were paper was made and such fantastic pieces of artwork.
Optional is a boat ride on the River Nile to the all you can eat restaurant which is included in the excursion.

In summary a fantastic experience with some great tour guides. Many thanks to Sami, Will and even Mohammed whom we met at the end of the day for him to have the chance to hear of travelers experience's

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A great day trip, well worth doing if you are in sharm el sheik. A long and busy day but very enjoyable. Picked up straight at hotel and taken to airport, meet there and told exactly where to go and what to do at the other end.
Met at the other end by english speaking tour guide Will. Stayed with us throughout trip. Taken through streets of Cairo, then to Cairo museum, where Will guided us round then had some free time to look at our leisure.
Went on optional Nile river cruise trip - worth it to say you have been on the Nile! Then it was lunch on the Nile, good choice of food.
After lunch the main part of the trip for us - the pyramids and sphinx. Absolutely fantastic, option of camel ride, worth the £15 to see pyramids from the other side and ride across the desert!
The sphinx was amazing however felt very rushed at this point and only spent around 15 minutes here, so felt we could have been here longer.
Last stop was perfume shop, do not know why this was apart of trip would have preferred longer at sphinx or shopping in Cairo?
Worth spending the money to fly to Cairo and do this day trip.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
Wow! Fantastic, superb, amazing experience that I won't forget.
We wanted to visit the pyramids but the idea of a group tour didn't appeal to us. Luckily we found SharmExcursions who offers private day tours to Cairo and Giza.
I was really impressed how smoothly things run, everything was perfectly organized.
We had a taxi picking us up very early morning! Then we took a small plane to Cairo which took about an hour. There we met our superb guide Mohammad El Beltaguie.
We had an air conditioned mini bus taking us to places. The driver was nice, friendly and quite funny too.
We first visited the museum. Mohammad was amazing and so knowledgeable. He talked to us about the history of Egypt, the Pharaohs, the Pyramids... Next was the Nile boat cruise with lunch which once again was perfect. I loved the music on the boat!
Then we visited the pyramids. Well, they're more awesome than I've ever imagined and I loved the camels! We had a fantastic ride out in the desert. The driver of the camels Mr Hussein was really nice and he took loads of pictures of us. Also he let us lead the camels without any help. That was so cool!
Mohammad took us round and inside of the pyramids then gave us some time to look around ourselves. Of course then we found out about the locals... well, they were trying to hard sell all sorts of things to us. Almost literally forcing themselves on us. Oh well, it was part of this experience and Mohammad did warn us about this.
Finally we visited the paper and perfume making places. I got some lovely perfume and some great papyrus pictures.
We got back to our hotel around 9.30 in the evening.
I totally recommend SharmExcursions especially the private excursion. You get to see everything in your own time and you got your own personal guide and driver to make your day as enjoyable as possible.
If you're thinking of going on this trip ask for Mohammad. Not one person said he’s one of the best guides in Egypt.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Having heard about the Luxor and Valley of the Kings day trip from friends who had visited we decided it was a must see on our first trip to Egypt. We had an excellent time from start to finish. Our guide who met us in Luxor was Sahid he was very knowledgeable and explained the timetable for the day he made sure we were happy with the timetable he had arranged and would cater changes for individuals who had previously visited certain tombs etc. We started the visit by visiting the Valley of the Kings where he explained the history and stories relating to the 3 tombs he had chosen for us to visit. After the Valley of the Kings Sahid had arranged for us to stop at a known alabaster factory in the area, where we were given a brief history into the making of the items for sale and provided with tea and cold drinks. We then made our way to Queen Hatshepsut’s temple where again he told us the stories and history behind what we were to see. We then stopped for lunch where a hot and cold buffet meal was provided, Sahid then asked if were keen on going on a short return Nile cruise whilst the mid day temperatures raised to 45c+ to a banana plantation where we were given the freshly cut bananas and watermelons the bananas were the best tasting bananas. On the return leg of the Nile cruise Sahid pointed out the sites of Luxor and told us we were about to visit an approved Papyrus museum where we were shown how they make and create the papyrus art work. Our last visit of the day was a trip to Karnak where once again we were told about all of the history and what the hieroglyphics meant. Overall the sites we had visited that day and the information and history we both gained from our guide Sahid were amazing I would highly recommend this tour guided by Sahid because of the history and knowledge he knows about the sites of Luxor. We learnt so much during our short time in Luxor and the time he took in answering any questions we had gave that personal feel about it, I will certainly be booking another trip to Luxor on our next return to Egypt in the near future.

SharmExcursions General Review
What an amazing company, staff are really friendly. Excursions were cheap and a whole heap of fun. Their service is brilliant always on time and really lovely people. I had to cancel one of my excursions because my partner was unwell. Sharm excursions allowed us to reschedule out excursion on another day. Will book with sharm excursions again.


Thank you guys

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Amazing day, early start but well organised. Lily our guide was fantastic, she knows her stuff and made it easy for our 3 children to understand. Museum was excellent, cruise up the Nile with lunch was lovely, even the children had plenty to eat. The pyramids, wow, they are fantastic, got to venture inside one, and a camel ride so we could take photos of them lined up. Perfume factory was lovely but I agree u should be given the option of going there as you do feel pressured to buy. So a big thank you to lily, you are amazing and our 3 children loved you.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A little worried as when I enquired we had to pay a random guy who turned up outside the hotel and then were given the collection times and off he went. I was wrong, could not be more wrong. The bus (air conditioned) turned up at our hotel (Sharm Plaza)within a few minutes of the agreed time and off we went to the Airport where we received our tickets and instructions for when we landed.
We were met at Cairo airport after a one hour flight by a (will) who introduced himself and informed us of the itinerary. Really nice bloke who's English was excellent and knowledge even better.
Museum - Very interesting even though I am not a Museum lover usually.
Pyramids - Just fantastic, take a camel ride or horse drawn carriage worth every penny of the £15.00. You can aslo go inside which was graet.
Perfume factory - Not for me and felt pressured. MD of Sharm Excursions, worth saying to people you can go in if you want to rather than having to go in.
Food - Really very good loads of salads, breads and cakes for the fussy eaters which I am one.
MD of Sharm Excursions turns up three times during the tour and really does want true feedback, if there are issues then raise them he is there to listen.
At the end of the tour he presents a DVD of photos of the day and obviously trises to sell you the DVD! - No he does not he simply shows you the DVD then says its on the website of you want to direct your friends and family to it and never mentions you buying it. Its is for free, how many Companys would try and sell it/
Great day, worth every penny, great company I would travel with them again. Only downside, perfume factory but I'm a bloke and most of us are rubbish when it comes to things like that.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Fantastic value for money - had a great day out with some lovely people .Abdo our guide was a walking Eygption encyclopaedia and kept us laughing and entertained all day - some memorable sights and experiences that made our holiday unforgettable . The only thing that needs changing is the Air Memphis flight up to Cairo - Jesus a bathtub with wings ! I have seen more modern Spitfires - reassuring that under the seat we foundnot a life jacket to tie doubled bowed - but a parachute lol ( jest) - if ur nerves hold for 45 minutes each way in the air this trip is not to be missed - well done Sharm excursions - you delivered exactly what you promised !!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I booked four excursions - Cairo by plane, Bedouin dinner with star gazing and camel riding, quad biking and parasailing - and every one was perfect.
Our tour guide in Cairo, Abdul, was friendly and knowledgeable; we learned so much. The whole day was well managed and put together. As well as seeing the museum and pyramids, we were taken on a Nile boat cruise, visited the Papyrus Institute and spent some time learning about oils and perfumes from a lovely chap.
Our tour guide for the Bedouin dinner, Sammy (Sammie?), was funny, friendly and welcoming. He shared lots of interesting facts and stories.
We were always collected on time, the transport had A/C and was comfortable and we were treated like VIPs the whole time.
I can not fault Sharm Excursions. I would love to visit Egypt again and would have no hesitation over booking with these guys again. In the meantime, I will be recommending them to all my friends and family.
Thanks so much to Mohammed and everyone at Sharm Excursions for making our holiday one we will remember for the rest of our lives!
Very best wishes.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 2 Day Excursion
After the unrest in Egypt 2 years ago Cairo especially has been a no go area for many tourists. I just want to say how wrong the press are. They are using scare mongering to stop people seeing an amazing city and not forgetting the pyramids at Giza. Sharm el Sheikh seems to be a popular destination for British holiday makers but they never venture outside of their holiday resort. I find it difficult to comprehend visiting Egypt and not going to The Pyramids ! Its like going to Orlando and not going to Disney world !
Anyway a little about our trip to Cairo. We opted to do a 2 day coach trip as to do Luxor and Cairo by plane would have been to expensive for our budget. After a long overnight 6 hour coach across land we arrived firstly at Cairo museum where we were split from the large coach we travelled there on into a much smaller group of 6. We then met our guide for the next 2 days. She introduced herself as "Lily" What we liked about her was she was concise in the information she gave us without bogging us down with loads of dates ect that we would never remember. Cairo museum was really interesting . Housing so many artifacts from the pyramids it was hard to see them all in the time allocated. Lily took us round the main exhibits then we were given about 30 minutes free time but as the museum is stretched across 3 floors was very hard to get round all of it. We were then taken by air conditioned mini bus towards the river where we met our optional boat trip up river to lunch ( £100 Egyptian each extra) but well worth it to take in some of the land marks . We arrived at a small riverside restaurant where we had an open buffet lunch which consisted of a varied choice. Here we met Mohamed the director of sharm excursions. A pleasant quick witted man. This extra personal touch was very welcome. He asked us how we were finding our experience of his company's service to which all of us agreed how excellent it all was. After lunch we went onto Giza and the pyramids. What a sight. A really jaw dropping experience the marvel of the structures and all the history was aw-expiring . We were given the option of a ride around the perimeter of the pyramids to take photos and also capture the alignment of the pyramids. This was an extra £100 Egyptian each and was done by either Camel. Horse and trap or horse drawn carriage. We chose the horse and trap. Again worth doing as you dont see the pyramids in alignment from the entrance side. We then took in the sights of the Sphinx and a walk down into one of the tombs. This i passed on as it was a very steep descent into the tomb and an even more strenuous climb back out. You dont see much anyway just an empty void . After 1 more stop at a perfumery our 1st day was done. We were the only couple to be on the 2 day trip so we were taken to our hotel b our guide where we had a fairly clean room for the night. This really wasnt much of an issue as when we opened the curtains in our room the view was of the great pyramid itself ! you really couldnt have asked for a better view. Our second day was a more relaxed afair. We were taken by Lily around Cairo town by mini bus . A whistle stop tour of the city center, including revolution square . We then headed uphill towards the citadel where we would stop and tour the magnificent Temple built there. Again an amazing structure where we were given some information by Lily on the mosque itself but also a quick explanation into the Muslim religion. Lily then gave us a few options on things we could do for the rest of the morning into the early afternoon until our coach left for Sharm el sheikh. She took us to a local eatery where we sampled some local cuisine and then walked round the market area before embarking on our trip back. We really couldn't of asked for a more personal service than what we got from both Mohamed and Lily our guide. One of the trips that will stick in my memory forever. Thankyou.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We were picked up exactly on time early in the morning and flew to Cairo. Will was our tour guide and you couldn't fault him!! He was absolutely fantastic and had a wealth of knowledge everywhere we went!!! We were in a small group which made it a more enjoyable trip and got to know the other members of the group. Don't listen to what any of the hotels say or try to advise about not booking excursions through themselves. They will rip you off. We saved a small fortune with Sharm Excursions and loved every minute of our trip!! It made our holiday and if were to go back, we would definitely use Sharm Excursions again!! Absolutely brilliant!! Keep up the good work!!

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
I cant praise them enough, they were fantastic especially as i was ill and had to postpone the trip for a couple of days.
Sorry for all the texts lol i missed the pre arranged meeting ( i got the wrong day) but I was contacted and met the next day with no problems. The guide Will was brilliant. I loved being driven through Cairo for me that was the best bit , seeing how other people live etc. We took our 11 year old son and this trip was perfect for him, I think he learnt more in that day then he would have at school. I found it strange that you could climb on the Pyramids and how quiet it was , i was expecting loads of people so it was lovely. Not sure id take the horse and cart ride again....not for those with a bad back...A fantastic day, if id been better we would have arranged more trips with these as we felt well looked after, Thankyou

SharmExcursions General Review
I booked a few trips through Sharm Excursions which included a 1 Day Cairo Trip by Plane, Mount Sinai, Glass Boat, Quad Biking and Buggy Safari. All the excursions were brilliant and the staff / guides were extremely friendly. I looked through various websites which offered excursions in Egypt and Sharm Excursions were by far the most competitive and so much cheaper than if you booked during your stay in Sharm. I was maybe a touch concerned when paying the 10% deposit but after reading all the positive reviews on this company I was fairly comfortable going ahead with them. The process was simple and straightforward from the point of paying the deposit to meeting someone from Sharm Excursions at the hotel lobby. We arranged to meet at 8.30am and a guy named Sammi was already there waiting for us. We paid the remaining balance and received full and final confirmation of all our trips. A personal touch was when we met Mohamed during our Cairo trip around lunch time. He introduced himself and asked if everything was going well. Towards the end of the day we met Mohamed again at the pyramids where we all thoroughly enjoyed his company and thanked him for a great day out. Our guide at the Cairo trip was Abdul who was the best guide we could have asked for. He was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. All our other trips were just as exciting as the Cairo trip and we would like to thank Mohamed and all his staff for making our holiday so special. Thank you guys and hope to meet you again in the very near future.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
What can I say about our one day trip to Cairo? Excellent! We opted for the private tour to allow us as much flexibility on the day as we have 8 year old twins and a 23 month old. Paying in cash the day before the trip was rather worrying as we tend to opt for the credit card option. However, as instructed the rep was outside the hotel at the designated time to collect the money and provide instructions for the following day trip. Everything on the day of the trip ran v smoothly; taxi arrived on time, met at the airport where we received our flight tickets. When we arrived in Cairo our guide and transport were ready and waiting. We decided to go to the museum first and our guide Shaimaa was amazing. She was enthusiastic, incredibly knowledgeable and delivered all the facts in a way which was entertaining for our children. An absolute delight! We decided to go on the boat trip to the restaurant which we enjoyed (and were the only family on the boat!). In the restaurant Mohamed even turned up to check everything was good with the trip, a nice touch! We were lucky enough to go into the Great Pyramid which was amazing! The route to the burial chamber absolutely delighted the children…..a must! We had as much time as we wanted around the pyramids which was fantastic as we did not feel rushed at all. Our guide and driver were superb throughout the day. We did decide to visit the perfume/paper shop as we had some spare time at the end and there was no pressure to buy any goods. The children were fascinated to watch how the paper was made. I would certainly recommend this trip and company! A wonderful, memorable trip!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Cairo through Sharm Excursions. It was very well organised. I booked a couple of days before my trip and paid my deposit online. A representative named Hesham met us at our hotel the day after our arrival to collect the rest of the money (apparently it was done this way to ensure we get the cheapest rate). We were collected from our resort on the day and taken to the airport. The flight was comfortable and they even provided us with snacks on the 1 hour trip. On arrival at the airport in Cairo we were taken to an air conditioned bus and our guide Will was very funny and informative giving us the history of the area and the many landmarks we passed. The trip began at the museum, which was nice. There was a guided tour of all the noteworthy exhibits and then some free time to have a wander on our own. I was very grateful for that, though the museum was a bit crowded. We were then offered a boat trip along the Nile, we had to pay extra for this. I would have preferred it be included in the tour as it was a lovely part of the trip. We were treated to a delicious lunch at a riverside restaurant. We then went on to a papyrus shop which to be honest wasn't included in the description. At first I was a little miffed about this as it was an obvious ploy to get us to buy things. There was also a trip to a perfume store at the end during which we were also encouraged to buy. While I didn't appreciated being sold to against my will and knew clearly that Sharm Excursions must get a share of the commission, I can understand that for some people it is a nice opportunity to visit a good Egyptian store and buy some genuine products. The trip to visit the pyramids and the sphinx was obviously the highlight of the whole trip. We were able to wander around the pyramids, take photos. We even went inside one, which was an interesting experience. Sweaty and unnerving but one I would have missed. It was amazing just being there. Sure there were a lot of people there trying to get you to buy things or take camel rides, or horse rides. But it was no more hassle than you get at Naama Bay and we were able to handle it by being polite, smiling, joking, but saying no thank you and walking away. It only got dicey when the adorable doe eyed kids came out. But we just ran away from the cuteness ;) All in all I'm very impressed with Sharm Excursions and encourage anyone to book with them. We actually ended up doing three different excursions and it made our holiday all the more enjoyable.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
What can I say? Absolutely amazing trip! From start to finish I couldn't fault this trip. Our guide Abdo was knowledgeable, interesting and answered everything. He also took time to talk to each of us and found out what we wanted to get out of the tour and made it happen. The Egyptian museum was interesting and very unique. The boat trip down the Nile showed you a calmer side to the hectic Cairo streets. The pyramids were everything I was expecting them to be: breathtaking. The papyrus and perfume workshops were wonderful because the actually showed you the techniques used. Not once did I feel pressured into buying anything, the staff were just happy to explain. Would recommend this trip to anyone. Big thank you to Abdo, best tour guide ever!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Highly recommend Sharm Excursions in comparison to Thomson/First choice rip off excursion prices. The whole trip went perfectly and very much enjoyed our day. Long coach ride but great value for money. Our tour guide (Ali) was very helpful, friendly, professional and always made us feel safe and well looked after. Would not hesitate to use Sharm excursions again.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Having looked at several tour companies on line I decided to use Sharm Excursions and was very pleased I did. From paying my deposit on line to meeting me at my hotel and picking me up on the day of the trip they were very efficient and helpful. I was met at Luxor airport by my Egyptian guide who was absolutely brilliant during the day. I was apprehensive about travelling on my own but need not have worried as my guide made me feel comfortable and relaxed all day. He was very knowledgable and gave us very good advice before entering each site. I would certainly recommend Sharm Excursions and would use them again if I returned to Egypt.

Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor from Sharm Three Days trip by plane
We were so pleased with this trip and with the level of organisation from Sharm Excursions. From the day we booked it to the 3-day excursion itself, the professionalism was excellent - everything was properly organised, we were kept informed throughout. We could contact Mohamed any time for an immediate answer and he took the trouble to join our group personally in Cairo, to check everything was going well.
The excursions were excellent and our tour guides - Wael and Said - were superb, well informed and friendly. We really enjoyed Wael's company in Cairo and Alexandria and thanks to him for showing us real Egyptian food! I am grateful to Said for helping my husband to sort out the shopkeeper who swindled me out of a large amount of money in Luxor.
We will certainly use Sharm Excursions again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Swimming with Dolphins in Sharm el Sheikh
I booked to swim with the dolphins as a surprise for my 3 daughters. I found booking the trip was very easy. After arriving, the following day I paid the rest of the despoit. On the day of our excursion we were picked up on time and the guide was very courteous, made us feel very relaxed. He gave us a insight of Egypt from his prospective which was interesting to myself!!! The guide stayed with us throughout our swim and even took loads of photographs with my camera which he was happy to do. If he did not we would not have the photographs that we did.
I found the whole experience brilliant and my children were just in 'ore' of the dolphins. If I was to return to Egypt, which my children want to go back, I would feel completely secure with the staff from Sharm excursions and would book them again.
Following this my middle daughter received a happy birthday e-mail from Sharm excursions in October which I thought they took the time to do.
Thankyou

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
our Travel reps from thompsons lied, and said it was not safe to travel with sharm excursions, my wife and i were on our honeymoon and booked directly our self, at this point my wife was ready to cancel at our loss. we inquired about sharm excursions with the hotel staff and residents, all said good things. we found this company to be very professional and helpful, mahdy-will-"H" all very polite and respectful, oh yeah there was a armed guard on the coach too. we went on to enjoy loads more with sharm excursions..

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Fantastic trip through the desert at sunset lasting roughly 2 hours. No helmets though most folk wore scarfs that covered their head and faces, you will also need sunglasses. Take some loose change as you will visit a coupe of Bedouin houses and they will offer you refreshments and some trinkets. You will get filthy but it's great fun.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A fantastic day though very early start. Our guide Lilly was brilliant. Visited the Egyptian museum though didn't spend enough time there, optional boat trip along Nile (£10), much better than being on the bus. Buffet dinner on the Nile was great. Visit to Papyrus museum is interesting but haggle!! Pyramids and Sphynx are awesome. Another optional trip up to a verge by either horse drawn cart or camel (£10 pp) to get a better view of the pyramids is recommended and a tip for the guy accompanying you is much appreciated, they will take lots of pics for you. Don't get caught out by unofficial salesmen/harrassers who will pester you and then expect money for showing you how to pose infront of the pyramid or being on a picture. Lastly visit to Perfume shop is interesting but really is a captive sales pitch, a bit of a come down to be honest after seeing the pyramids.
Cairo toilets are disgusting, bring your own tissues/hand sanitizer to avoid having to pay £1 for a piece of toilet paper.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Fab trip to Cairo, very well organised, good value for money packed full of fantastic things to do and see! All amazing experience’s going to the museum, boat trip on the Nile (optional for an extra £10) then lunch on the Nile Lilly, Pyramids, Sphinx, Papyrus Museum and Perfume Shop. Our guide Will was very friendly and informative. It was nice to see Mohamed the owner of SharmExcursions whilst we ate our lunch who had came to ask for our opinions, good or bad. I would recommend SharmExcursions to my family, friends and work colleagues. Only downside to the whole day was the return flight from Cairo to Sharm being two hours delayed, what a nightmare that was but totally out of SharmExcursions control.

Thanks Fran

Very worthwhile going on the semi submarine if you don't plan on snorkelling or scuba diving but would still like to see the fish. We were given plently of time on the boat to look and take photos.

Parasailing In Sharm El Sheikh
The parasailing excursion is brilliant as long as you don't mind being on a boat when the sea is pretty choppy! It was a very exciting experience however my other half did feel quite ill on the boat as you do get thrown around quite a lot. Great experience though!
Charlotte from Norfolk .
 
Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This is a great excursion at a much better price than the likes of Thomson, First Choice and Thomas Cook. Although you do have to leave at about half 4, it's well worth it to spend the whole day in Cairo looking round the museum and seeing the pyramids and the sphinx. We had a really helpful, friendly tour guide for the whole day which made it even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone thinking of booking it.

Glass Boat
A worthwhile trip, although having boarded a rather nice boat they then moved us to a rather shabby one. Sami our tour guide was fantastic, giving us some great insight into the Egyptian way of life on route to and from the boat.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
Fantastic excursion, the camel ride was more comfortable than anticipated. The whole Bedouin camp experience was great, good food, friendly people and a great show and a smoke of the shisha pipe to top it off.
As for the star gazing words are not enough, it is a must do, and the guy explaining the constellations was brilliant.
Also our tour guide H was a great guy, very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
Brilliant from start to finish! Started a little earlier than we would have expected (we were picked up at 3pm!) but still worthwhile and also cost a lot less than doing the same excursion with the travel agents in resort so we were pleased to have pre-booked with Sharm Excursions! Despite having been apprehensive about the "camel ride" part of the trip - it was actually a lot more fun and easier than you might think (although most of the men were complaining that it was more than a little uncomfortable for them... if you know what I mean!) though even they all seemed to love it.

On arrival a group of Bedouin children were on hand to guide our camels through the fairly remote desert location to the tent where the nights entertainment would unfold. Despite being tiny, these kids seriously knew what they were doing and you felt confident in them, but be aware that they have angelic little faces that make it impossible to say no when they are fleecing you for tips and believe it or not your jewellery when you get to the end!

But was well worth it... we then went and learned a bit more about their culture from our lovely and knowledgeable guide Sammy while we enjoyed tea and had a go at making bread.

Next was a climb up a small "mountain" (more of a large hill) to watch the glorious sunset - great photo opportunity but a fairly treacherous climb for the girls in flipflops... make sure you take the right footwear!) before heading back down for an opportunity to enjoy more drinks and enjoy a shisha, if that's your thing.

All the drinks were included (tea and soft drinks) and then food was served which was actually a fairly impressive buffet-style affair which seemed to go down really well, and there was opportunity to buy local jewellery and herbs before the evenings entertainment started.

The dancers were exceptionally good, and then we moved out of the tented area and into the desert for the star-gazing bit. This was every bit as good as we expected, but with the added enhancement that the astronomer who looked after the group was exceptionally knowledgeable and made it all very interesting, addressing all questions thrown at her and giving great insights as to what we were looking at. There was even the option to get a photo of the moon through the telescope on your digital camera.... brilliant!!!!

Highly recommended, full night of entertainment.

Sharm Desert Horse Ride
What a brilliant laugh this was. My partner and I were novices (haven't ridden for 20-odd years!) so the horses we were given were gorgeous gentle beasts by the names of Sara and Mona-Lisa.

Our guide was Ali Baba (!) who clearly loved the animals and had great control of them... they were so obedient I am sure they would have known the route of their own accord, but responded to his every command anyway. Even having only been shown the basics, we were soon able to canter on them which was slightly scary at first, but Ali Baba was so confident in them and so in control that we soon became comfortable doing it.

After a short stop in a Bedouin tent (beware, when you are offered a much needed drink in there, you will be expected to pay for it!) where the Bedouin girls then sell you their jewellery too - not a complaint, just something it would be good to know about in advance, hence mentioning it here) we re-mounted for our return to the stables.

One of the best elements of this (apart from the hilarious and barking mad Ali Baba) was that towards the end we were joined by a photographer on a quad-bike who took photos and videos of us and by the time we dismounted back at the stables they were all on a laptop there for us to see.

Of course we wanted to buy them... they were so good! It cost about £22 but as we didn't have enough cash on us having been fleeced at the tent the photographer was good enough to drop them at the hotel later that day and collect the payment there... brilliant idea and more than we had expected.

Loved this excursion, great couple of hours well spend!
Donna Middleton from Cheshire, UK .
 
Transfers in Sharm
As we were booking excursions with Sharm Excursions, it made sense to also pre-book our airport transfers. On arrival the air conditioned car was waiting for us, with a representative in the airport displaying our name (despite the flight having got in early!) who promptly took us to the hotel. On the return, exactly the same - punctual and efficient... highly recommended!
Donna Middleton from Cheshire, UK .
 
Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Amazing excursion, worth the early start (4am!!!), long day and worth every penny! (incidentally, booking through Sharm Excursions saved us around £30 per person against what the travel agents seemed to be charging in resort so was well worth booking in advance with them)

Everything was impeccably well organised and ran smoothly apart from Cairo Airport being a little shoddy causing delays on the return but was nothing that Sharm Excursions could have prevented!

The icing on the cake of an altogether fabulous day was our guide, Abdo. He was so knowledgeable (has several degrees in Egyptology etc which we were all very impressed with) and spoke about everything in such an educated yet entertaining and passionate manner, he held the whole group (small group of 12 of us so you get personal attention) captivated throughout.

Starting with the Museum which was unmissable, we then went on to the Pyramids which were amazing but be prepared for a) being constantly accosted by locals selling tat and b) for a very difficult descent into the Pyramids themselves if you choose to do so (only about 4 foot high down a treacherous hot and dark descent of 30-100 meters, depending on which Pyramid you go in... wear suitable footwear is all I can advise on that score!)

From there on to the Sphinx which again was phenomenal despite still spoilt slightly by the aforementioned locals, but the guide was careful to ensure everyone was prepared, knew how to respond to them and kept everyone together wherever possible, though you did have your own time for shopping / photos etc.

On that note the guide patiently took pains to take photos of everyone in the group with their cameras which was a lovely touch!

Somewhere in between all this we had a trip on a Nile boat (was an additional £10 but given the choice of that or remaining on the bus everyone chose that and were thrilled that they did), a great lunch where we met SE's owner, the very entertaining Mohammed, a trip to the papyrus museum and to an authentic perfume shop.

What an amazing experience, one we wouldn't hesitate to recommend and thanks to Mohamed and Abdo for a unique and memorable time.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This trip was simply amazing. We were met at our hotel by a representative of Sharm Excursions who ensured we were transfered to the airport on time. He explained exactly what was going to happen so getting to Cairo was hassle free for us.

On arrival in Cairo we were met by Maya who was our guide for the day. Maya was extremely knowleagble and made the journey into Cairo an extremely interesting one. We were taken around the Cairo museum and were shown its treasures, after the museum we took a felucca boat to the place where we ate overlooking the nile. It was there we met Mohammed who owns the company. He was a lovely friendly gentleman who was there to greet us and to make sure we were having a fabulous time. the tour moved on to Giza and the pyramids where we spent lots of time looking round the site. We were also taken to a Papyrus museum and Perfume factory.

The whole trip was extrmely good value for money and we enjoyed every moment of it. I would recommend anyone book with this company. We also booked the glass bottom boat trip, star gazing trip and trip into Sharm - all were brilliant - I really cannot fault anything!!!!

A sincere thank you to Mohammed and his team for making our trips with them unforgettable!!!!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
What a fantastic experience provided by Sharm Excursions!

We scoured the internet before our trip in September 2012 to find a reasonably priced trip to Cairo as it was one of the deciding factors for my fiancé when deciding to book the holiday to Sharm. Initially we looked at the plane trip but due to a limited budget we opted for the Coach trip and I'm glad we did.

We arrived in Sharm and were greeted by a friendly representative to take the remainder of the balance from us at our hotel. This was the one thing we had reservations about as were initially told that the rep would meet us outside the hotel, but everything was fine and we handed the money over in the secure surrounding of our hotel lobby and were given the pickup time for the day of the trip.

We arrived at the Egyptian museum to be greeted by our guide for the day Lilly. She was fantastic and had so much knowledge of all the sights we saw and helped us around the pyramids where the sellers can be very persuasive!

Every single stop on the tour was carefully thought out by Sharm Excursions and made for a fantastic day. We only really went for the visit to the pyramids and sphinx but loved the papyrus shop and the perfumery too!

A more than deserved 5* rating - we can't wait to return to Sharm in the future and will go on more trips with Sharm Excursions!!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A thoroughly enjoyable day in Cairo. Sharm Excursions had everything in hand from start to finish and were extremely organised and knowledgeable about everything "ancient Egypt". The day was well structured, fitting lots in before and after the Pyramids. Camel rides around the Sahara desert and the views of the Pyramids were amazing. Definitely recommend this trip, especially as it was cheaper than the same trip we could have booked from our hotel rep!

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Another early start but well worth the effort wasnt sure what to expect from luxor but it was amazing. Valley of the kings was our favourite part of the day especially paying to go inside king Tutankhamen tomb because his mummy was still inside and his tomb was quite different from the others. Pleased to have an air conditioned bus because luxor was very very hot but a must see if you are interested in the history of egypt, just make sure you bring plenty of water, though they do sell it on the bus which was good.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Picked up from the hotel early and driven to the airport where we were informed what to do and where to go when we got to cairo. The airport itself was a bit of a nightmare but cannot blame sharm excursions for that, still worth the money flying by plane made the journey bearable. One in cairo we visited the museum which was amazing and had a guide show us around with a little free time at the end which meant we could pay to go inside the royal mummies which we would highly recommend. The pyramids were amazing pictures do not do them justice and the guide was brilliant taking photos of our group and explaining the sights we were seeing

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm

The star gazing was really interesting and over all the trip was very well organised. completley recommend!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked a couple of excursions after reading the positive reviews on trip adviser. We booked the trip to Cairo & the glass bottom boat trip. As arranged we paid the deposit on line & met the representative the day after we arrived. We had an early start to the airport & was met at Cairo airport by Abdu. What a lovely young man who was very passionate about his job. He seemed to genuinely want to share his knowledge & give advice about Egypt & the locals. Wonderful day! Thank you very much, will definatley book again when we venture back.

SharmExcursions General Review
We travelled to sharm between 1st july and the 15th july in a group of 8 joint by two others half way through. When i found sharm excursions online i was dubious to book and pay a deposit and then hand over £1100 when we arrived to someone completely random, but this worry proved a complete waste of time as all excursions were fantastic and run like clockwork.

We done parasailing, Aqua Park, Snorkeling at Tiran Island, quad biking and Cairo by plane. All excursions were brilliant!!! Egypt was the best snorkeling i have ever experienced and recommend this excursion to any keen snorkelers. Quad biking was well well worth doing, absolutely brilliant experience.

On our trip to Cairo( approx 45 min flight) we were picked up at 4.45am and the early morning was definitely well worth it. When we arrived in Cairo we were greeted by our guide Lilly, who was absolutely brilliant!!! We were extremely fortunate to by privately taxied in our group for the whole day opposed to being on a coach-load of people all day. Lilly was extremely knowledgeful about the area and the ancient egyptians.

We first headed to the Cairo museum, which we were shown the best bits and given some free time to look around and explore what we wanted to see. To be perfectly honest you could spend days in the museum if you wanted to view everything.

From there we went on a boat trip along the nile which cost 100 egyptian pounds per person (£10) but was definitely worth it. Lunch was great, then we went to a papyrus factory.

From there we went on to the pyramids and sphinx, which was spectacular!!! the ticket includes entry to the smaller pyramid which is a must, also you can get a camel or horse ride into the desert to get the best pics of the pyramids. After that we were taken to a perfume factory, where we met Mohammed. We were pleasantly surprised that he asked for feedback both good and bad which we thought was good as most people take no notice of bad feedback. This Excursion is definitely worth the money!!!

The Aquapark is brilliant, its the bigger of the two parks in sharm, they only allow 2 bottles of water into the park, which you expect to get ripped off for drink but bottles of coke/sprite are only 1 pound, plus your ticket entitles you to a free lunch and drink.

Overall i think Sharm Excursions were a great company and we have no regrets what so ever, everything was Great!!!! Thank you Mohammed and Lilly for completing a fantastic holiday!!!

Would highly recommend and use again!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We went for a day trip to Cairo to see the piramids and it was amazing and were very well looked after. Not to miss this. The only snag was the boat ride on the Nile broke down and had to wait for another one which somehow shortened our time for shopping. But on the whole it was nice experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Recently returned from Sharm El Sheikh, but whilst there went on the bus trip to Cairo. Very organised: Paid deposit prior to leaving UK and then the morning after arrival met a representative from Sharm Excursions who took the rest of the payment and provided instructios for the trip. It was nice to see that they were security conscious and assured us that the trip would not go ahead, if it was not deemed safe to do so. Glad to say trip did go ahead. Coach journey as comfortable as they can be, but unable to use toilet on bus as it was out of order. This did present some difficulties with two children, but we managed. One stop at service type station en route to use bathroom facilities and top up with food/water/stretch legs. Journey there took almost 8 hours and we were two hours late, but I gather that this was due to checkpoints. Several checkpoints on the way, which we imposed for safety reasons, so again, can't really complain.
Went to the Egyptian Museum first upon arrival in Cairo. Fascinating experience and the guide provided by Sharm was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and good fun. She took family photos during the day and looked after us well. The Museum did not have any air conditioning, which was very uncomfortable and to be honest spoilt the experience - really hot, humid and you were happy to leave asap, even though there was loads to look at. Next went on a boat trip along the River Nile to the restaurant. Food a bit limited but OK. To be honest, it was so hot, you didn't really feel like eating. Next went onto the Pyramids/Sphinx-these lived up to all expectations and the visit inside the Baby Pyramid was fantastic.
Following that went to see how Papyrus was made into paper and visited a perfume factory. Again, all very interesting and informative. Mohammed (Owner of Sharm Excursions) met us at the restaurant at lunchtime and then again at the end of the day. He was very interested to know how our day had gone and whether there was anything he could do to enhance our experience and those of others in the future. Afterwards he then instructed the guide to buy the trip some ice creams at his expense. Really nice gesture and much appreciated. I thought that the trip was well organised and I would recommend it to others highly. Not sure I would undertake the long journey to Cairo on a bus, if I had to do this again, but the money we saved, then enabled us to do other trips, so I guess you can't have everything! Thanks for a wonderful experience Mohammed!

Sharm Desert Horse Ride
What a fantastic Trip , picked up on time and in a new reliable air conditioned vehicle and taken to the Omar stables to pick up our horses and guide. Being a very very novice rider and my wife a decent rider we were given horses that suited our skill level . I rode Mona Lisa who was very gentle yet great fun , my wife rode prince who was a little more testing . Ali our guide (and trainer in my case!) was absolutely fantastic , my confidence grew under his guidance and we had an awesome time. I just wish I had booked a longer ride. Only thing I would say is do not expect to gallop over rolling sand dunes , a great pre arranged trek with a nice stop at the Bedouin type shack for refreshments . Highly recommend !

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Enjoyed this trip, however there was a lack of information given regarding using the quads lukily me and my partner had experience of this trip before therefore it was not as bad for us but those doing it for the first time need more instructions. There was only x1 tea given to each participant on the trip, other drinks such as; cold, was on offer but at a charge which was very unfortunate. Also me and my partner felt that there were to many short breaks that were pointless to the trip.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
This trip is 100% advisable to do, it was amazing and the tour operator was fantastic on this partiuclar excursion he made us well aware of the current political disputes and of the surrounding areas on the trip! The tour guide would go above and beyond to ensure he met your queries and supported you throughout the trip!! would do again definately recommend people to do this!!

Semi Submarine
Enjoyed this excursion, but would definately recommend more of an introduction to it. Me and my partner entered onto the Semi Submarine and did not realise that to see the fish and coral we had to go downstairs on the boat in order to do so. We automatically presumed that the submarine would leacve the top of the sea and head under water, needs more description.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We were told not to book with anybody else but our tour operator in UK. However,we booked our excursions with Sharm Excursions before traveling to Egypt... and it was the right decision!!! We went not only to Cairo but also to the Dolphins Show, Swimming with Dolphins and Rhino Safary. The excursions were exactly as described and a lot cheaper than the ones offered by our tour operator here!!! We will recommend this company 100%. They were very helpful with all questions that we had before booking and they arrive always on time for the trips in Sharm. Thanks a lot for a great time in Sharm!!!!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This is a very long day so be prepared!! Picked up at half 1 in the morning and returned at 2 the next morning, very tiring, make sure you are doing nothing the next day as it will take a while to get over it. We would have preferred to fly but the price difference is alot and for £40 a head it is well worth the money! The coach is fully air-conned which was a God send, and they made one stop for the toilet and chance to pick up some food, the company also supply you with cold bottles of water throughout the day. When going to the toilets in Cairo make sure you remember to take tissues! We first went to the Egyptian museum which is amazing but massive, too much to cover in short amount of time. Guide was very knowledable but would have been better if more free time was given. We then went on the Nile cruise which gives you a good view of Cairo. Lunch was very basic, we then went to the pyramids and sphynx. These are amazing but you do get hassled alot there, we got some amazing photos being taller than the pyramids etc. Truly a wonder of the world. We then went to the perfume factory and they truly make you feel welcome there, providing you with soft drinks. All in all was a very tiring day but an amazing experience, the price is amazing for what it includes.

Buggy Safari in Sharm Desert
We were a group of four that did the Sunrise excursion, what a GREAT experience, defiantly recommend it to all! We all had lots of fun and how wonderful to see the sunrise in the desert.

Thank you Mohamed and the Sharm Excursion Team.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
An extremly well organised trip from Sharm. Timings were very good, allowing everyone to see the thbings that they want to. The Nile River trip was an optional extra but worth doing; very relaxing and entertaining and shows a different part of Cairo. The restaurant that you stop at is very good and has quite a reasonable size buffet to choose from. Our tour guide, Abdo, very professional and helpful. He had extensive knowledge of Egypt and no question was left unanswered. The worst thing about the day was the hasseling around the pyramids. Remmeber to be firm with your answer to them and they will soon leave you alone. A recommended trip!!!!

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm

An amazing excursion definatly recmommended

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Great value for money. An extremley long - 26 hour trip on and off the bus but with 'H' our guide for the day made it worthwhile.
our first stop was at the museum where we met 'lilly' who had all the knowldege on the mummies and kings was very interesting and educational.
we then took a short trip up the Nile to the resturant where we had lunch - when booking ths trip sharm excursions organised a birthday cake for me as it was my mothers birthday and they made it a great day as she was not expecting a thing!
Back on the bus then and over to Giza for the pyramids and spynx which was great to see but only needs to be seen once! we were hassled quite a bit by people trying to sell you stuff just tell them 'no' firmly and they will walk away.
we then went to a bedouin family perfume/oil shop where they gave us refreshments and a demonstration on how they made their products and of course the opportunity to buy!
Then it was back on the bus for our journey back to the hotel.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 2 Day Excursion
I travelled with my toddler & pregnant wife for Cairo by plane 2 day & Luxor 1 day by plane. I must say our experience was very good with Sharm Excursions. Mohamed was very helpful in guiding us through the booking process. Our guide Abdul in Cairo was very knowledgable and passionate about his work. We were very impressed how he managed a group of tourists who were a mix of all age groups. 1st day was all the famous places that we usually hear about Cairo and the second day was all about actual downtown Cairo.

We then flew to Luxor and slept at a hotel there before starting another wonderful excursion. Our guide there was also well-aware about the history of Luxor and explained things like a well-connected story which made it easy to understand/remember things.

I would highly recommend Sharm Excursions for exploring Egypt. Also, those who are confused about visiting Egypt due to news/rumours about political turmoil should not worry too much. We found Egypt much better and stable as opposed to what we usually see/hear in news.

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
Booked 4 trips before we travelled to Sharm, Cairo by plane,Bedouin camel ride and star gazing, submarine trip and St Catherines monastery.Every trip was a really memorable occasion all the guides were very professional,friendly and helpful. Would recommend you book with them.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Me and my other half had a fantastic time on this excursion, we enjoyed each and every bit of it. From visiting the pyramids at Giza to going into an actual Papyrus shop. We booked all of our excursions with this company, they we're always on time, always curtious and friendly and each member of staff was fantastic in particular Mohammed!

We also booked the crocodile and snake show, the sharm bus tour (which we never went into a bus for but our own private taxi with just me and my partner, which was an added bonus), we got to see the many mosques and also experience Old Market! We went on the quad bikes in the desert and got to meet some real bedouins.

Thank you for providing us with a memorable experience.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Myself, my husband and daughter booked this trip March 2012 and we had a wonderful day. Sharm excursions were brilliant and we had no problems at all. We took the boat ride along the Nile which we recommend instead of trying to beat the traffic in Cairo. The pyramids were fantastic and thoroughly worth the trip. The only thing my daughter and i didn't like was the hasslers trying to get you to buy stuff at the pyramids but we took the advise of our guide and didn't get into conversation with them or buy from them. Our guide Abdu was fantastic and very knowledgable and we were glad to have him throughout the day. The day was very long and tiring but well worth it and we would definetly use Sharm excursions again.

My daughter and I went to Luxor on the 31st March 2012 and what a day it was from pick up to drop off.

Banana Boat Ride in Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm Mega Safari Excursion
So glad we booked this! We had planned to book quad biking and snorkelling but was told by Mohamed about this trip which included banana boat too. Everything was fantastic and very organised. Mohamed was great help during booking and our guides were also very friendly. The only criticism i have is 40 minutes was a long time on the camel so we ended up turning round a little early and rested in the tent for a bit, but quad biking (shared quad bike with my husband), snorkelling, and the banana boat were all great fun. Would definately recomend SharmExcursions and big thanks to everyone for a great day, especially Mohamed! Linda and Andy

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
This was such an adrenalin rush!! =) We were collected from our hotel by mini bus at approx 2am as we chose to quad bike during sunrise. After collecting a few other guests from different hotels we went straight to the quad biking experience. A little daunting at first as we set off in darkness but it was well worth watching the sunrise. After our experience we were taken back to our hotel where we slept by the pool =)

Swimming with Dolphins in Sharm el Sheikh
This had to be my favourite of the 3 excursions we did with Sharm Excursions. We were collected promtly from our hotel and taken to Dolphina where we had approximately 20 minutes swimming and interacting with the dolphins. A fantastic experience!!! After we had the opportunity to purchase any photos and were then taken back to our hotel =)

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 2 Day Excursion
My family had a greaat time with your tour and guide the first day. We flew to Cairo, were picked up and had a great day at the meusiuem, the lunch buffet was great, then Giza and the pyramids and perfume factory was good. Untill we were dropped off at the hotel in Giza.

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
This was an amazing trip and although we are both 60 years old we managed it with rests! We were amazed how many were climbing with us...and so many nationalities. Make sure you take plenty of warm clothing. Our head torches were also useful to pick out the path. 20 Egyptian pouns hires you a much needed blanket on top as it was -4C. Bbbrrrrr!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We had a wonderful day in Cairo. Visited with my daughter. Very well organised trip. Good to have a female guide as in Sharm there are few female staff and she was very good at keeping the 'hustlers' at bay for us. My daughter and I also felt very safe with someone who knew the city so well. She was very knowledgeable and kept us all amused andinterested.
Full day - lots to see - the Egyptian museum was brilliant and set the context for the visit to the pyramids. We were not so keen on the perfume 'factory' visit as we were a small group and none of us wanted to buy perfume. Therefore we all felt a little pressure, especially as they had provided us with tea and a 'chat',in what is apparently their home.
Also, the trip on the boat to lunch was not optional - there was an expectation that we all took this and it cost extra - if you are aware before, as we were, then this is no trouble, but two of the group were not and felt a little unhappy that they had to pay an extra 100 Egyptian pounds (£10)each - this needs to be made more clear. The lunch was worth it - lots of choice and plenty of it.
There was a camel/horse ride (choice of animal) at the pyramids - this cost extra and again we felt that we had little choice but to except- the view was worth the extra cost but beware that they will ask for further tips at the end - you just need to be clear if you do not want to pay more.
We had the use of a small bus and driver all day so there was not too much walking, the bus was waiting on time for us after the end of each sightseeing part - we were were able to keep any heavy items and jackets on the bus without needing to carry them all day.
Finally, remember that the guide stands outside of Cairo airport as they are not permitted in to the arrivals lounge as other trip representatives are - so don't get worried, like us, that there was no-one to meet you! Just walk on further and they will be there.
If you are going to Egypt then seriously consider this trip - it was worth the money.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Well worth the price and the travel

We got picked up around 1am on a small bus and was took to a coach which was very comfy considering it was full. Thankfully there was also a toilet and comfort stops where to could get yourself a cup of tea. Take plenty to drink with you espeically water and a pillow and blank for comfort and warmth.

Remember to get your visa stamped - we almost nearly didn't get throught but thankfully the guide on the bus sorted the situation

Firstly went to the Cairo Museum which was been done up at the time and was bit dissapointing as you also werent allowed your camera (the tour guide took your camera from you and put in lockers which we got back after our tour of the musuem)

Secondly went a boat trip down the nile which cost an additional £10 but was worth it. Went for lunch after but you have to pay for your drinks but didnt starv, was plenty to eat

Then went to see how the pyrios pictures were made - this is pricey shop but haggle and its worth it

Then we went to the pyramids, apart from the hassel of children/people who were trying to sell things it was fab. Our tour quide Mia was great. Just to stand metres from the pyramids was amazing! Need to oay £10 per person for a horse or camel to be able to see the stunning view of the 3 pyramids togther. The guy who drove our horse and cart demeanded a tip for taking some photos so please be aware!

We then finally went to the oil shop where a wee talk was given and then tried to get you to buy some oils. Ended up with a sore head with all the smells. At this point our group was tired and wanted to go home it was something we could have skipped in all honestly

Mia our tour guide was great. Can't thank you enough it made cairo all the more intersting. Thanks alot.

Well worth being stuck on a bus for nearly 7 hours there and 7 hours back.

Semi Submarine
We booked this excursion the day before because we had been aproached by another company and as we had done other excursions with sharm excursions and trusted them we dicided to do through them. The guide was half hr late picking us up from hotel but it was worthwhile as this was an amassing way of seeing the coral reef and fish without getting wet by snorkelling or scuba diving. Great if you have kids as they can experience the great sights also. A man does try to sell you DVD of it all but we felt we would just be watching a whole load of strangers with the odd clip of us so not really personal to us so didn't buy. We had taken our own film with our camera. Someone at the end comes round with a cap to collect tips but we didn't give anything as we paid enough for trip and didn't get anything extra.

Ras Mohammed By Bus Snorkelling Trip
Booked 5 trips with sharm excursions and all were fantastic but this was our least favourite. Firstly we were not informed that we would need to hire our snorkelling gear so had to pay £10 each. So bring your own as they are not provided. The views before we get to beach were not spectacular just baren ground. The sea was cold but fine once we got in but that is to be expected at end of December. We were supposed to have a guide in water with us but he was too busy dealing with a couple who were very panicky and after waiting ages to get started me and my husband dicided to try and go out ourselves as my husband has snorkelled before. Views underwater was amassing with lots of fish. From there we stayed in our wet clothes and was driven to next sight of clear river and mangrove trees. From there we walked over to an amassing site of ground which had been split from volcanic eruption. And then had to go into the ice cold magic sea which was exilarating. Back in bus we were driven to another beach for more snorkelling but we just sunbathed and dried off instead as didn't want to be going back in dripping wet bathers as no where to change. Also unless you can leave your belongings with someone in your group to watch if they not going into sea don't take valuables with you as we had no choice but to leave everything on bus and had some money go missing.

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
This was first time on a camel and was a little scary as my camel kept lifting his leg up to scratch his head and I felt I was going to fall off but didn't. It was such fun and I really enjoyed it. You ride for half hr and at the end of it climb a mini mountain to the top to see the sunset but unfortunately we climbed up too late and missed it. Climbing the mountain is tiring and I don't think suitable for people with walking difficulty. We finished our trip with tea with the bedouin and an attempt to roll out their bread which they cooked and let you have a piece. Would have been nice if we could have ridden the camel back instead of going on bus. Ps take some small change for tipping your camel leader who has to walk with your camel.
Mr & mrs jones from Birmingham .
 
Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Me and my husband did this and 4 other excursions with sharm excursions and found them to be fantastic. We enjoyed every one of them. The guides were friendly and very helpful. You will need your sunglasses and a scarf which you can buy and use for other excursions such as camel ride. You do follow the leader and don't have free rein to go wild and drive as you wish but that is only for your protection and to guide you right direction. Highly recommend this company and this trip.

Snorkeling Trip Ras Mohamed or Tiran Island
My boyfriend and I booked 5 trips with Sharm Excursion and all went really well and were pretty much as expected. This trip was very relaxing, though unfortunately for us the day was a bit windier and cloudier than would have been ideal. However, the water wasn't too cold, even in December, and we saw some really big and nice looking reefs. We didn't see anything too interesting in terms of sea life compared to what we had already seen snorkeling at our hotel, but this may just have been the day we went. I had never snorkeled before coming to Egypt, and when I jumped in at our first stop I freaked out a bit, but the professional snorkeling guide we had helped me out and let me hold onto a life preserver ring as we joined the group in the water so that I didn't miss the experience. I held on to the preserver until I had gained the confidence to go out on my own, so don't worry if you're scared! The people take care of you. Overall, it was a nice, relaxing trip!

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
My boyfriend and I booked 5 trips with Sharm Excursion and all went really well and were pretty much as expected. This trip was one of my favorites. (It's definitely worth paying the extra 5 GBP to do this trip instead of the Bedouin dinner that excludes the camel ride and star gazing). The camel ride was really fun, the bedouin dinner was fantastic, and the show was really really great! The stars were pretty good (though I expected a bit better, honestly. I think there was still too much light around us to see as many stars), with a very knowledgeable astronomer who explained some cool things in the sky. Overall, great trip!
Catherine from USA .
 
Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
My boyfriend and I booked 5 trips with Sharm Excursion and all went really well and were pretty much as expected. Quad biking was really fun, but it could have been more fun if we had more freedom to go fast and meander a bit. I didn't realize this going in, but it was more of a follow the leader sort of thing through the desert, usually at a decent pace but once I got comfortable (I had never driven a 4-wheeler before) I found my self really wanting to go faster! Aside from that, the scenery was fantastic and we had a nice visit at a bedouin camp where we were served tea. Overall, a good trip to get out and see the desert and mountains a bit!

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
My boyfriend and I booked 5 trips with Sharm Excursion and all went really well and were pretty much as expected. The trip up Mount Sinai was a workout if you're older, but pretty easy if you're young and/or in shape. There are plenty of places to take breaks/buy hot drinks/buy chocolate and other food along the way. There's also the option of riding a camel up part of the way. The sunrise was beautiful as was the walk down in the daylight when you could take lots of pictures and appreciate the unique desert-y mountains around you. The one thing I wasn't prepared for enough was how cold and windy it was near and at the top of the mountain! I went in December, and having a few long-sleeved layers and a thin wind-jacket was not enough! I would definitely reccommend bringing a hat/scarf/mittens and a thick warm jacket, and maybe wearing some long-johns! We ended up renting a blanket for 20 egyptian pounds at the top to wrap up in, but still we were freezing! Besides being cold for most of the climb up and down, (I don't know how it is at other times of the year, but don't forget that the desert gets quite cool at night!)it was quite worthwhile. Also, we had a short visit to St. Catherine's monastary and a buffet breakfast (not that great) before driving back home. Overall, a good trip - good value for your money, but you'll be tired afterwards!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
My boyfriend and I booked 5 trips with Sharm Excursion and all went really well and were pretty much as expected. The trip to Cairo was one of my favorites, aside from the long bus ride. We were picked up around 1:30am and rode for 5.5hr on a big charter bus, stopping once for a break. Once we arrived in Cairo we had a great english guide to take us around the Egyptian Antiquities museum. From there we took a short ride down the Nile (worth the extra money) to where we had lunch (buffet, ok not great). Then we drove to Giza and went around the Pyramids and Sphinx and we had the option to take Camel rides and had plenty of time to take great photos. Our last stop was a Bedouin perfume shop which was awesome. Then the long ride home, arriving about 12:30am or so. Overall, a very worthwhile trip, especially for the price! (Don't forget to bring toilet paper for on the bus and in Cairo, it seems to be absent in most public toilets!)

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
had a wonderful experience in cairo. our guide Will was brilliant and looked after us well. the is absolutly NO trouble in Eygpt so shame visitors are down to this great country as it is affecting their livleyhood. We recommend you take boat ride on the nile as beats the smoggy traffic and has great views. food was better than our 5star hotel food. Expect to visit a papayrus and purfume factory as part of your tour. The pyramids are breathtaking and you get haggled like mad by sellers but we listened to our guide and did exactly as he said and we had no trouble. Would highly reccomend sharm excersions and this trip. Ps we even had a visit from Mohammed himself the owner of sharmexcersions come and introduced himself in cairo.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
Had a fantastic time on this trip - our guide Hisham was brilliant and very knowledgable. We were picked up promptly and accompanied by our guide throughout. He made sure we were looked after and provided us with info throughout the trip. The excursion was good too, because we had booked with Sharm Excursions we had VIP service for dinner and didn't have to queue up like all the other tourists with other companies.
Will definately be booking future excursions with this company when we return. Highly recommended, professional service.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Myself and my Parnter did this tour and really enjoyed it. We were a bit concerned after booking due to the recent troubles reported in cairo but our Guide was very reassuring and in fact we had no issues at all even in the centre of cairo. The highlights were the museum of antiquities and seeing the pyramids, but it was nice to see some local businesses like the perfume factory and the boat trip on the Nile. I would highly recommend this

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Throughly recommend Sharm Excursions. My partner and I travelled to Cairo by plane for the 1 day excursion on November 27th. There was absolutely no issues with the unrest that is being reported on currently in Cairo. The tour guide Sam was very professional and had a lot of info about the city. He was only to happy to help with any queries we had on the day.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked our trip last year and were very excited to actually go on our Cairo trip.

The day after we arrived in Egypt we met Mustaffa from Sharm Excursions and paid him the balance of our trip.

On the morning of our trip we were met outside our hotel and taken to Sharm airport for our flight to Cairo.

We were met at Cairo airport by a lovely young man called Abraham who was our guide for the whole day. Abraham pointed out lots of buildings and told us a lot of history about Cairo itself. The traffic in Cairo is awful but our driver was very good and made us feel safe.

Our first stop was the Cairo Museum - fantastic to see all the ancient artifacts and hear much about Egyptian history from our very informative and knowlegable guide Abraham. It was 100EL extra to go and see the mummies but it was worth it. The first floor is all about King Tut and amazing to see all his beautiful artifacts.

Our next stop was onto a boat (optional) and a short cruise down the famous Nile - again our guide pointed out lots of interesting facts to us. We stopped for lunch at Nile hotel - the food was lovely - buffet style and very good!!

We boarded our bus again and after a short ride we saw the pyramids - all I can say is wow!! Our guide Abraham took us on a tour of the Pyramids and told us all about them and even took photos for us. We were told that if we wanted to enjoy the experience we must be very firm to the people in the area selling goods - they really did get to be a bit much after a while - but we took Abrahams advice and said politely but firmly - no thank you - even to the policeman riding a camel who wanted us to take his photo - he too would have expected us to pay. We walked around the Pyramids and some in our group of 6 went inside one of them. Next we walked to the Sphynx, fantastic sight and we will never forget it.

We also visited a perfume shop and and a papyrus museum during our day in Cairo but the most wonderful part was the trip to the museum, Pyramids and Sphynx.

Our guide was very good, he explained everything to us and we had a wonderful day.

We arrived back at Sharm about 21.00 very tired but happy.

Thank you to Mohammed, Mustaffa and most of all Abraham. We will definately use Sharm Excursions again.

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
Sharm Excursions were excellent my daughter and I were picked up in a private car by a driver and our guide Heesan, we had a fantastic evening firstly riding camels then making Beduin bread, drinking tea and a delicous buffet whilst watching a belly dancer and traditional show.
Heesan was was very attentive and informative he answered many questions about the beduin culture and Egptian traditions and never left our side. We were joined by an arabian family of 5 who sat with us all evening and my daughter was suprised with a lovely birthday cake for 30 something birthday.Finally we viewed stars in the dessert with the help of a very informative young astrologer and Jupiter and the moon through a telescope, all other trips seemed to be of 25+ people ours seemed very exclusive. Heesan was a superb guide we would like to Thank him. Trisha and Cheryl.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Would highly recommend booking through Sharm Excursions for your trips, great value and excellent service. The quad biking was fantastic, my mum was very worried about doing it but she thoroughly enjoyed it. We also booked a boat trip which was really good, the guys on the boat were all really nice, we stopped at 3 places to snorkle and the guide took us to some excellent spots to see many fish, I even saw a sting ray. I would like to thank everyone at Sharm Excursions.

Camel Ride, Bedouin Dinner and Star Gazing in Sharm
Fantastic evening,well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. We also got to meet Mohammed the owner of the company who came and experienced the evening with us - Mohammed came with his wife and young son Abdullah to make sure the service and performance people were expecting was what they received, i was impressed by this hence my review. Feedback from customers is key and what makes a company work as they are reliant on recommendation mostly. I would thoroughy recommend this company and will be booking again with them next year for when i return.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked this trip online and had the best trip ever...we were in a small group of 10 (lots of groups we saw had 20+ people) which was really good. We were met in Cairo by George, our guide who I can only say was THE BEST. He took us around the Museum and was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave us so much information. The Pyramids and Sphinx were amazing and again George provided so much info, helped us get the best pics and saved us from the many hagglers!! I cant thank Sharm Excursions enough and strongly recommend you book with them and hopefully get George as your guide!

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
I cannot fault this company in any way. My daughter and I booked this tour - everything went as explained and planned. We were handed over to our bedouin guide who took us up the mountain and the next morning he took us back down and handed us back to our rep. Everything ran smoothly and I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I would recommend SharmExcursions to anybody travelling to Egypt. Cairo by plane was the best excursion I had whilst in Egypt, the tour guide (Abdol) was extremely knowledgeable and explained a lot about Tutankhamun in the museum and also gave plenty of free time to look around.
If you get the option, take the boat up the Nile after the museum, this allows you to get a good view of Cairo (well worth the small extra charge), and lets not forget the Pyramids themselves, it's a must if travelling to Egypt and the best part of the trip, it's something you want believe until you see them and think how they must've made them all those years ago!!
And last but not least, I was concerned before going on this trip due to all the stuff seen on the news recently about the trouble in Egypt, my advice is not to listen too much about the hype on the news as we had no problems on my trip on 13th September.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We went to Cairo by plane on 17th October.

Our guide Will was just the best, we really like him! He was our walking encyclopedia for Egypt, very informative and clearly spoken.

Tour was a long day but was paced well enough to keep us going and I believe it covers enough to see all the main sites and the real Cairo.
Museum, boat trip down the Nile to restaurant for lunch, Papyrus shop, Pyramids with an option to go down inside one for free, Sphinx, Tour quiz and finally the Perfumery.

We were shown around each place and then given time to wonder around by ourselves if we wanted to. We never felt like we were rushed for time. Throughout the day our comfort was paramount and we had plenty of toilet breaks, an air conditioned bus and drink breaks and we also even a really nice treat; Will bought ice creams for all of us! Thanks Will xxx

Generally the trip was briliiant and definitely the highlight of our holiday.
Will was amazing and made the experince as perfect as could be.
We would most definitely recommend this Sharm Excursions to anyone. Excellent value and cheaper than competitors.

Once in a lifetime experience and well worth it!! Thank you!!

SharmExcursions General Review
We booked 2 trips and an hotel transfer with sharm excursions before leaving the UK based really on the reviews on here. I dont regret it for a minute. after paying a deposit in the uk our guide Sami who was waiting at the airport for us to take us to the hotel took the balance of the money gave us our tickets and explained exactly what we would need, times etc. Once at the hotel he stayed with us to check in and and took our room number and contact phone number in case of problems. Everything was extremely well organised the guides were very knowledgeable as well as being entertaining. We had Sami for the Bedouin dinner and Moya in Cairo both faultless. When I go back to Egypt I will certainly use this company again. Please ignore what the tour operators say this company provide an excellent service at half the cost. I could not fault anything.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
booked this trip before leaving uk and dont regret it. It was half the price of the tour operators identical trip. Although a long day it was well worth it. picked up at 01.30 from our hotel and arrived in Cairo about 8.30. First stop was the Egyptian museum where our guide Maya provided an excellent history to the relics we saw. Lunch on the Nile was followed by a visit to a papyrus institute then on to the pyramids then to a perfume factory. The whole day was informative, interesting and fun. Maya was faultless and even helped take the amusing pictures at the pyramids knowing the best places to stand to kiss the sphynx, stand on top of a pyramid etc. The whole day was memorable. Please do not hesitate to book with this company, we enjoyed 2 trips with them and an airport pickup to hotel and couldnt fault their attention to detail reliability and quality of their guides.

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
My boyfriend and I loved this excursions-it was our favourite of the holiday.Riding a camel was so cool, if not a little scary.We was met on time(as usual)by our guide 'H' who was lovely. We were chauffered to a dessert to embark on our ride. Small children guide the camels and tips are expected so make sure you take some small notes to give them. We then met the bedoiun people who live in the desert. They were so hospitable and allowed us to try their tea and bread and shisha. As the sun set we climbed a small mountain and could watch the sun set on the desert. It was beautiful and a definite must do!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
The day was amazing!We was met spot on time at the hotel by a tour guide who took us to the airport. The flight was the smoothest journey I've ever been on (and it was accompanied with a drink & cake).We was met by Moya at the airport, our tour guide for the day. Any question or piece of information on Egypt you wanted to know she had the answer, like walking around with the encyclopedia!There was plenty of free time but Moya made sure she was available if we wanted to ask anything.I would recommend taking a fair amount of money with you, like 1000 egyptian pounds(£100)as there are many additional things to buy on the tour.This included a camel ride by the pyramid, perfume/oils, jewellery, lunch....etc.These are mostly 100 egyptian pounds and really worth taking advantage of. Make sure you have plenty of camera battery and memory because there's so much to see.Also, try not to wear sandals as by the pyramids and sphinx its very sandy and stoney.It was a fabulous day out and I would definitely go back if I were to visit egypt again!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
WOW, can I just say first of all a massive thank you to Sharm Excursions, in particular our tour rep Abdol who was truly fantastic.

My boyfriend and I had the most fantastic memorable day and it is all thanks to you. I cannot praise or thank Sharm Excursions enough. They put a lot of hard work into what they do and it certainly shows.

Cairo is an amazing place and a complete must-see and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Egypt.

As per the website instructions, you pay a small 10% deposit when you book, then you meet one of the reps and pay the rest out there. You receive your receipt and full details of the day and pick-up times etc. The trip is very well organised and planned and you have nothing to worry about other than making sure, and you seriously must make sure you have with you some suncream, a hat and/or sunglasses with you because when you are at the Pyramids, the sun is beating down and it is tough. Abdol made sure we all kept hydrated and actually right before our stop at the Pyramids he went out and fetched us all a cold bottle of water each despite us all protesting we were fine! (Just shows how stubborn us Brits are).

I really can't say enough about how brilliant our tour guide was. Abdol was so passionate and informative, he knows so much history and there isn't anything he couldn't answer. Abdol also looked after us very well and we felt so safe and secure during this day out. I am so glad we booked up with Sharm Excursions. You receive a top class service at a discounted price, we were also in a small group of 8 so you really feel you are receiving a personalised service.

At the end of the excursion we found out from Mohammed and the team that there had been some "trouble" in Cairo which was splashed all over British TV. You will find in interesting to note we did not see one bit of trouble in Cairo during the whole day so it just shows how the media works in our country and it is embarrassing. Please do not be put off visiting this wonderful place, Egyptians love their tourists and wouldn't put us in danger.

Finally, I just want to say a massive thank you to Sharm Excursions. We cannot wait to come back to Egypt and will definitely be planning further excursions with this operator.

Thank you.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We did the Cairo trip by Plane on 11th September and would highly recommend Sharm Excursions and the trip to others. It was a must and fantastic trip if you are visiting Egypt. We booked with Sharm 4 days before we went and paid £135 each, when we arrived in Egypt our Thomson rep wanted £165 each for the same trip. So definately book before you go. The Thomson tours we later witnessed had around 30 people in them compared to our cosy group of 4.

The Sharm rep met us in our hotel lobby at the time he said he would to take the rest of the payment and to give us our receipt. We were picked up around 04:30 in the morning and taken to Cairo airport. We did a bit of waiting around but overall it was a smooth process. The flight to Cairo took just under an hour and another hour on the air conditioned bus from Cairo airport to the Egyptian Museum.

Our tour guide had very good English and was happy to answer any question we had which being in such a small group we were able to ask as many as we wanted.

After the museum we headed on a Nile Cruise (100e£)upto the restaurant which I wouldnt call 5* but was an open buffet (drinks not included) and was perfectly good enough for lunch. After lunch we took the bus again down to the Pyramid site but first we stopped off at the Papaya Factory, this was a waste of time I felt but thats probably becuase I knew I had no intention of purchasing anything.

Finally, we made it to the Pyramid site and I must say, scorching heat and annoying local tat sellers aside, was absolutely amazing. The guide was brilliant here, she was patient whilst we took our photos and offered and was happy to take as many for us as we wanted. We saw all three Pyramids and got to take a horse and cart ride (100 e£) to a certain spot where we got to get some breath taking shots. Then we got to go inside the smaller of the 3 pyramids. I must say, if you are claustrophobic dont do it. Im asthmatic and had to take my pump twice becuase there is no air inside but as youre probably only going to do it once I would say its worth going inside. There isnt anything inside the tomb but its worth it but be prepared to sweat like hell and make sure you have plenty of water - YOU WILL NEED IT! Lastly, we went to the Sphinx, this was rammed with people but truely amazing to see.

Overall the day was truely memorable and I cannot fault Sharm Excursions for their organisation, knowledge and overall service. I would say to bear in mind the following things: first, you will need lots of water for the day becuase it is so tiring and hot. Second, take plenty of money with you. There are lots of little extras that I didnt consider prior that I would like to have known and that was the tipping and the extras like the Nile Cruise and the Horse and Cart. Also, whether you take the H&C or a camel or horse, the owners WILL want tipping and they arent shy in pushing for more.

Enjoy, its def worth doing.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
We booked 4 trips with sharm excusrsions paying just 10% deposit & the balance on arrival. I found them very friendly, well organised and professional. Our guides were very knowledgeable and frienly and took great care of us throughout the trips, a BIG thank you to "H", Mohay(my family),Muhammed & everyone whose names I forget, Our holiday in Egypt was awesome, the trips were something else, this place has definately got the WOW factor, the Pyramids in Cairo, the Valley of the Kings and the Karnak Temple in Luxor are absolutely breath taking, " how did they do that?" We will never know, one thing I do know is they are spell binding as they stand today, one can only imagine their true beauty and splendour in their heyday.

Our other two trips took us into the desert with a camel ride & Bedoin tea, a great experience, but the best fun I've had in years was the quad bikes, FANTASTIC, loved every second and still talking about it.

I would recommend this site to anyone who is looking to book trips during their stay in Egypt not only will you be well looked after you will pay a lot less with these guys than you will with your rep.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
The pick up was slightly late and in a small bus with cramped seats and dodgy suspension. We were given no explanation that we were being taken to a central location to move onto a LARGE COMFORTABLE AIR CONDITIONED COACH. This, then had temporary failure of air conditioning due to low water levels. Despite that and being charged for the toilet when we stopped it was a GREAT DAY with pretty good guides who kept us safe, well informed and were very attentive. A trip on the nile was an extra treat at minimal cost. Thoroughly glad we made the trip and lucky we slept on route. If you do not travel well on coaches it is a long journey (6hrs each way) but great to see Egypt life by night and city life by day ! Be prepared for the baking sun out in the desert though !

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Booked the trip before we landed in Egypt.Paid 10% deposit through PayPal and remainder to rep who met us at our hotel.
Fantastic trip but a long day.I would never do the Cairo by bus tour.
Our guide was Abdul.What can I say, the guy is so knowledgable and passionate with it.He is the best guide I have ever had!!!!!!
Pyramids were amazing but spoilt by the endless local sellers pestering you to buy their tat.Do not give them your camera to take a photo of you as they want money to hand it back to you.
Overall I f your going to Egypt,then this tour is a must and approx £50-80 cheaper than your resort rep.
I will book again with these guys

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We used Sharm Excursions for our trip to Cairo from Sharm and they were brilliant. It was our first time in Egypt and the whole day they organised was great. Our guide, 'Will', was superb and made the day what it was. There were only a few of us on the tour so it felt private - the minibus was modern and comfotable and we found out so much about the 'real egypt'. I strongly recommend using Sharm Excursions as we also found the price very good compared to the tour operators in the hotels.

SharmExcursions General Review
Went to Egypt earlier this year and wanted to go on trips, saw this website and was a bit worried but we booked 2 trips. The camel ride bedouin dinner and star gazing and we also did the coach ride to cairo. Both trips were excellent and very enjoyable our guide H was fantastic and we had him for both trips, he could answer anything you asked. Also when we got to the museum we met Lilly our tour guide of Cairo for the day and they were both fantastic. These trips are much cheaper than booking elsewhere and were just as good if not better.We will definately book trips again next time we visit Egypt (soon I hope).
Again would like to thank H,Lilly and our drivers who were all great.

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
this trip is well worth the money and the view from the top makes it well worth the effort of getting there. we were collected from hotel about 10pm and the drive lasted about 3 hours. on reaching our destination the tour guide explained that we would have our own local guide who would take us up the mountain and supplied us with torches to help light the way and then we set off to the first station.the climb is not easy and unless you consider yourself to be really fit i would think twice about making the climb and hire the camel. if you decide to climb and find its too difficult conserve your energy and go for a camel which you can get at any point on the climb,because your gonna need every last bit of energy to climb the 700 so called steps. at this bit i think you need to be part mountain goat to negotiate these huge steps(boulders), lots of people ended up on their hands and knees including myself at one point. on reaching the summit its a case of cameras ready and wait for the magnificent sunrise. it does get cold on the summit but there is plenty of people who will hire/sell you a blanket for a few pounds.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Having waited a lifetime to visit the Pyramids, it was still a bit nervewracking to book the trip online, but having read all the reviews on the Sharm Excursions website, book it we did with a bit more confidence. Well we needn't have worried. As arranged, we were met by Mustafa to pay the balance and pick up our tickets. The trip itself was fantastic, we were looked after right from being picked up from our hotel to being dropped back later.

A short plane flight to Cairo, we were met by Will, who is.... by the way..... A LEGEND! We love Will. His English is very good, his knowledge boundless and wrap this up with his passion for his job and his mischevious sense of humour …..a fantastic day was under way.

En route to the Museum he pointed out places of interest, gave us information injected with humour making it all fascinating. The Museum was mindblowing (only if you are into that sort of thing of course) and its a shame we didn't have more time, there is so much to see. Be aware that your cameras are taken off you AFTER you have been round the grounds and but BEFORE you go in as photography is strictly forbidden in the building. You will get them back don't worry. We had a guided tour for the first hour and then free time for the second. It was just as well really because you wouldnt know where to start if left to your own devices. To go in the Mummy Room is a further £10 each but on the second floor there is a mummy you can see for nothing so its a preferential option that we did not take. There was no time to be honest.

We then had the option to go on a boat trip along the Nile for apprx £10 each. It was quite a pleasant change from the manic streets and traffic of Cairo. I will never again complain about my partner's driving !!! You do not have to take this option.... you can remain on the minibus and meet up for lunch which is included and very pleasant and …...plenty of it as well. Drinks are not included but are cheap enough.

Its then on to the Papyrus Institute for a demo on how the paper is made, this lasts approx 10-15 mins followed by a chance to shop for any papyrus gifts. You get a view of the top of a pyramid from here as well.

Then its on to the Pyramids and Sphinx – AWESOME !!!!! AND it was not too busy with tourists or the peddlars that we had been warned about. The optional camel ride/horse and cart/ horse ride to a particular point on a nearby hill, is well worth the £8 each to get a view of the 9 Pyramids and Sphinx.

You are able to go in the Pyramids. Our guide advised us not to bother paying to go in the great temple but to take advantage of the free admission into the smaller one. Again photography is not really permitted but if you slip the guard a tip, he lets it go. I personally did not go down into the pyramid because I suffer from claustophobia.

From the Pyramids we went down the hill a bit to the Sphinx, again an awesome sight. There were slightly more tourists here and more peddlars but nowhere near as bad as we were expecting and this made our visit even more enjoyable. Any hassle was soon stopped with the appearance of our guides who just seemed to know when you needed them. Have I told you how FANTASTIC they are by the way ? Well they are !!!

From the Sphinx we went to the Perfume Factory. Anyone who has been to Egypt before will have, no doubt, have their stories to tell about the Perfume Shops. We were tempted to give this a miss, but it was a totally different experience and I am glad I changed my mind at the last minute. There was a glass blowing demostration which was fascinating to watch and 'the spiel' about the perfumes was much more interesting and informative than before. Of course, they want you to buy but at no time did we feel hassled or pressured into buying anything at all.

We were dropped at Cairo airport by Will and met at the other end to be dropped off at our individual hotels. It was a very long and tiring day but SO VERY much worth it. And did I mention the guides are FABULOUS? They are passionate, attentive, informative, protective, and fun. They really made our trip better than we expected. Big thanks to you all...... I am still buzzing from this trip.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Amazing!!!
Only us 2 and another couple with our guide, open dessert with full throttle was absolutely amazing great fun!! this was our favorite excursion by far. You will need a headscarf as the sand kicks up from the quads they sell them there for 20 EGP around £2 also would recommend that you wear your sunglasses. Loved it

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
In General a good trip, well organised.
The tour guide was incredibly knowledgable about Egypt.

Downside was the amount of rubbish around cario and the pyraimds. Also the continuing hassle from the souvenir sellers. And everyone, but everyone wanting a tip (asking for a tip as well).
its too much...........

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 2 Day Excursion
The journey in the coach was tiring, difficult to get to sleep with hindsight maybe flying would have been better.The tour guide showed us and explained in great detail what we were looking at.Extremely helpful in the Egyptian museum as there were too many exhibits to see and not know what they were.The guides explanations not only of the things we were seeing but also about Egyptian life both in the past and current was superb.Everything was as we expected.Glad we done the two day trip as there was a lot crammed into the first day.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
A great way to spend an afternoon. My girlfriend was a bit apprehensive about driving but the quads are very easy to control and very soon she was trying to race past people and go as fast as she could, which will get you a sloq down warning.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A very long but also very worthwhile trip. Our guide Abdul was very informative and really made the trip very enjoyable. The highlight for Basia was the visit to the perfume manufacturer,the owner Idal is one of the nicest person we met in Egypt and very funny. Would recomend the trip to anyone. Just remember to take a pillow for the coach. Its a 7 hour drive each way.

GREEEEEAAAAAATTTT FUUUUUUUUN and only 20 quid per person.

it was great we started at 3 am from our hotel we drive some 20 minutes by bus and we get to the quad base.
then we went to desert at night. very noisy and dust everywhere. great fun much recommended.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked 1 day Cairo by bus and we met very same day with Mohamed to make full payment. Later we were picked up at 1am from our hotel.After 8 hours we arrived to Cairo and there we met our guide Abdol.He is very nice bloke.He was the best guide ever.he answered every question we asked and he warn us what we should or shouldn't do while we visiting pyramids and Sphinx which I think was very important. We've seen Egiptian Museum then we swim by boat on river Nile to have lunch in one of the "restaurant". then we went to see pyramids and sphinx.after that we were very tired so Abdol took us to his uncle perfume shop where we were welcomed with cold drinks and were told everything about their "perfumes". I think that was very interesting and we also bought some. then we went back by coach to sharm.
that was great day although if you are on budget I recommend to go to Cairo with them by plane because few hours in coach was very exhausting.the guys they trying their best.
Comparing to thompson excursions their were half of the price (80£ thompson , 40£ sharmexcursions) and you get the same excursion. I recommend this company because you will receive great service and good price.all day we were look after and we felt safe with our guide.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Booked excursion right here on sharmexcursions.com and glad I did now. Was met at the Hotel by Mustafa and paid the remaining balance for the trip to Cairo. felt a bit dodgy at first about handing over cash without any real proof except for a receipt but there was nothing to worry about at all. Now the trip to Cairo was first class and was a better price than the other providers for the same trip.
Guide for the Day was Abdul.. cool pleasant guy a real gentleman and was super passionate about everything we should know about the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum and Tutankhamun. Great knowledge and a great guy.. made a good friend. He kept us right about everything including the locals who want you to buy from them etc but you will get that in most countries these days just say no and they will leave you alone.
Had a small group of six of us all from Scotland so we were all very comfortable and Abdul understood us too most of the time I think. Went for Buffet meal in the centre of Cairo (Happy Dolphin)after the Museum tour and met Mohammed the owner too who took the time to sit down with us and had a chat, he makes an effort to get to know his customers and looks after his customers very well (great Buffet meal and then he gathered us all together for a group photo, an anniversary celebration for another customer and then some champions league cake to wash it down with). can't praise these guys enough. they provide an excellent service and are very friendly also. they like doing what they do and I have to say they do it very well. I hope this helps anyone who has reservations about this. One last thing we also met Ande or better known as Andelino who owns the Temple Essence Flower shop and that was good fun also. He is a kind man and offers great hospitality too in his shop where you are offered a drink before trying out the many different types of pure flower EDT fragrances he has in store and they all smell great. there is no pressure to buy anything as some of us did and some of us didn't so the choice is yours. Second chapter... hehe that's the end I hope it is of some use to the folk thinking of doing this tour.. it was in my opinion money well spent.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
well what can i say...what an amazing holiday in egypt! We have have not long been back from the best ten days of our life! :) my partner booked for us both to go online before we went for my 21st birthday present, and we we had an amazing(1/9/2011). We were slightly apprehensive about handing the money over to someone we only just met in our hotel before the trip but everything was fine. there was a slight hiccup with our flight but mohammed and abdul couldnt do enough to help us out. We started the day by going to the egyptian museum which home tuttankamuns amazing treasures, we were then given the choice to take our bus or a small boat on the river nile to where we were having lunch I reccommend going on the boat you get to see more of cairo and abdul gives you lots more information about the city. After Lunch we headed to the pyramids/sphinx and they were fantastic although we were told with all the political stuff going on there, there would be no police at the pyramids which gives the locals the perfect oppurtunity to hassle you to buy things or beg for money and some of them can be quite intimidating, our group was lovely and if you can all look out for each other its great, don't give your camera to ANYONE at the pyramids and just walk away from thos trying to hassle you for money. Abdul then took us to his uncles flower essence shop, they are such a lovely family, his uncle was kind enough to give us free drinks and smell all the different scents and they can match fragrances that you may buy home and they are kinder to your skin as they dont add the alcohol in them like the big perfume companys do and the smell also lasts alot longer, we bought a bottle of pure poison and daisy and im really pleased with them, also no pressure to buy anything at all. The papyrus factory was the last stop, interesting when they show you how its made but you do feel pressure to buy from the shop keepers that follow you around and we found it cheaper to buy real papyrus from sharm. A big thankyou to abdul for an amazing day!!! We also booked rhino safari with sharm excursions over the phone in the hotel and what another fab experience, we have saved alot of money booking through sharm excursions, the reps in the hotel rip you off! We are planning to return to sharm and will definately book transfers and excursions through these guys! Thankyou!

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
Amazing experience for an unbelievable price. See my review on Cairo by Bus for ease of dealing with Sharm Excursions. My teenage kids really enjoyed this experience.

Small tip is to take a head scarf / Shemagh with you to protect from dust / fumes but they can be bought from the quad organisers for £2.50.

Again, some folk on our outing paid more than twice what we did with Sharm Excursions.

Wonderful, wonderful experience.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I booked the 1 day trip to Cairo and I thought Sharm Excursions were brilliant start to finish. Booking was so easy and convenient. The exact same trip with Thomsons was more than twice the price for all of the trips. I paid deposit before I left via pay pal, and received an e mail advising how to pay balance. A rep met me in the reception of my hotel and I was able to pay in sterling or Egyptian. My tour guide Abdol Nassar was excellent and a very knowledgeable Egyptologist.

I would recommend you take a pillow for the bus trip, although the bus is fine and well air conditioned. I slept for 4 hours on the outward trip so it did not seem too long. Most hotels will provide a breakfast box for you to take along on the trip.

We visited an Essence shop ran by Abdol's uncle and it was brilliant (much better than the papyrus factory so if you get an option ask for the Essence shop!). The essences are so good and they can match any perfume EDT that you care to request. Adelino is so knowledgeable and his family have run the business since 1923. He also made us feel so welcome with free drinks (recommend the peppermint tea also known as Egyptian Whisky) - there are some things for free in Egypt! There was absolutely zero pressure to buy anything but most people did.

All in all a fantastic trip for unbelievable price.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Have just got back from Sharm after a week there, we did the Cairo by plane trip with Sharm Excursions and had a brilliant day. Abdul the guide in Cairo was brilliant, had so much knowledge about Egypt and the Pyramids and made us feel very welcome and safe. Would definitely recommend this trip. Sharm Excursions were brilliant, dont book with your tour operator book with these. Was only 12 of us on the tour so was very personal and everyone was friendly. The Pyramids was an experience and as it was the end of Ramadan were very busy with locals, i would avoid going again at this time of year, maybe just a week or two later. Thanks for a brilliant day Abdul :)

Aqua Park Trip
Booked 3 Excursions with Sharm Excursions, Aqua Park, Boat trip to Tiran Island & Quad Biking, All trips were excellent, the Boat trip was great the Guys on the boat were lovely, boat wasnt crowded, We went to the large Aqua Park, people that booked with holiday reps at our hotel paid more money and went to smaller Cleo Park and had to pay for their own lunch ours was included, Very good company would definately use again. Thank you

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
What can we say, what fantastic value for money and the best decision we made to go with Sharm Excursions. Like a lot of your other reviewers we were worried about booking online. So we waited until we were at the resort hotel. Our hotel wanted £75 to do the same trip and heavily advised us not to go with an outside agency. They made us feel uneasy even more by saying that other firms were not legal and safe. But the difference in price and the feedback on here made us think again and we booked it.
From first booking our trip, everything was very professional and all the staff were very helpful and reassuring. I will say we were a little uneasy meeting a rep from Sharm Excursions outside the gate of our hotel in the back of a taxi to exchange money and receive our receipt/ticket. Mustapha was a few minutes late, but apologised for this. He reassured us that all was okay and not to worry. As a Mum, I did worry about Cairo with all the recent troubles that had been there, but Mustapha assured us that all would be fine and the government would not allow trips to Cairo if they didn't feel it was safe. Tourism is too important to them.

We were picked up by coach at 1.25am from our hotel and had a lovely clean coach, air conditioned with reclining seats. Water was provided at each stop. Ramadam looked after us all day so well, explained everything to us and again reassured us that we would have the most wonderful experience. When we reached Cairo we were met by Will our English speaking guide - what a lovely man, full of knowledge, tips and information. We felt he got it just right, did not blind us too much with history, just enough and and also allowing us time to take in our surroundings. To see Cairo, Pyramids, Sphinx, Lunch out at the Nile Lily which was superb - was just exceptional value for money. We would highly recommend them and if/when we come back to Sharm we will use them again.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We have just got back from a two week holiday in Egypt and would just like to say what a fantastic trip we had with Sharm Excursions. We booked two trips via the Sharm Excursions website prior to leaving for Egypt. This couldn't have been easier, communications were brilliant and prompt and on arrival in Egypt we met up with Sammi to pay the balance and discuss trip, times, e.t.c The bus arrived at our hotel on time and we had a fantastic trip to Cairo following our itinery perfectly under the guidance of Hesham our guide on the bus and on arrival Lilly our guide to the numerous places of interest on our tour of Cairo. To anybody thinking of taking a trip to Cairo who may be on a budget as we were, we would fully recommend this trip. Although it is a long day we couldn't fault the way we were looked after, the coach was fully air conditioned with a toilet and we were constantly offered drinks along the way and made regular stops and have to say the trip was fantastic value for money. We also booked a camel ride with Bedouin Tea thrown in and again everything was on time and we were really looked after from start to finish. To anybody thinking of taking some trips whilst in Egypt please book them with Sharm Excursions, we're sure you won't be dissapointed. Many thanks to all involved and if we visit Egypt again we will be sure to get in touch with you, Kind Regards, Rich & Tina Adams

SharmExcursions General Review
We went to Sharm for a week and did four excursions with sharm excursions: Bedouin show and dinner, trip to Cairo, quad biking and parasailing. We had the same guide for all the trips. I regret that I can not remember his name as he deserves a mention. He was funny, engaging, great story teller and knew facts and could answer any questions the group asked about Egypt.

The Bedouin night was great fun. Enjoyed riding a camel, not a comfortable experience, but one worth doing, the food and entertainment was great. Then we spent some time star gazing and learning interesting things about the sky above is. I really recommend this trip as a great way to experience some culture.

Parasailing was nice but preferred the quad biking. Had much fun although wanted to go faster on the bikes! we were told by instructors afterwards that we went at that pace as it was the first time for most people in the group but if we return we would be able to go faster next time! Everyone we came into contact with were friendly and helpful!

The trip to Cairo was amazing. My only two complaints is that we had to wait till after lunch to see pyramids. I was so excited about seeing them that I would've preferred to go there first, but that didn't take away my awe once we did get to see them. The other is that on the sharmexcursion website it says that you go to bazzars for shopping. I was looking forward to experiencing the markets and doing some haggling. Instead of going to Bazzars we went to papyrus museum and perfume factory for a chance to do some shopping.

Sharm excursions were very helpful and professional whilst being friendly too. Also we did check out some other excursion companies whilst we were out there and Sharmexcursions offer the same as the other companies but at a more reasonable price! I would highly recommend booking excursions through them! And would use them if I return to Egypt.

Swimming with Dolphins in Sharm el Sheikh
Wow, one of the best experiences of my life!!! We initially booked the trip for my daughter who has always wanted to swim with dolphins, but in the end all done it. It certainly lived up to all of our expectations and more, you can really see what clever animals they are, and they are so well trained. Would definitely recomend!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We'd read a lot of reviews about Sharm Excursions and decided to book to go to Cairo (day trip with plane) rather than book through our travel agent. We were told that a member of the Sharm Excursions staff would meet us at our hotel to pick up our trip money, we weren't actually told when they would turn up but they appeared on our second morning which was fine.

We were picked up really early by a mini bus and taken to the airport after picking a few more people up - we were briefly told what to do (this could have been explained a bit better as the guy's English wasn't amazing and we were all left a bit confused for a while! The staff don't come with you on the plane but you're dropped at departures and picked up the other end) Anyway, we all worked it out eventually and boarded a plane to Cairo, arriving around 8am.

We were picked up by a mini bus and joined with another 4 people so there were 6 of us together all day, no problems at all and immediately taken to the Egyptian Museum. We had to wait for a bit as our plane was early and the Museum didn't open for a while. Our guide showed us around the Museum which we were quite greatful for as it's not like a British Museum at all. In fact, part of it looks like it's still a store room and it's quite disorganised. Still, we saw some amazing artifacts and went to the Tutankhamun gold exhibition which was fab. We were left to look round by ourselves for a while but I'm pleased we were shown round for most of it as it was very busy and I don't think we would have bothered to look at some things as we wouldn't have been sure what we were looking at!

After the museum we were taken to the River Nile - if you wanted to take a boat to the next stop you had to pay an additional 100Egyptian pounds which we thought was a bit cheeky but well worth it. We took the boat to a restaurant which was at a 5* hotel. Food was amazing, and much needed by that time!

After lunch, we got back on the mini bus and were taken to a Papyrus museum. It was quite interesting and we all purchased something.
Then....we got our first sight of the Pyramids - we drove up a huge hill to a viewing platform where you look down on them and can take photos. This was probably actually the worst part of the trip. The pyramids themselves were breath-taking, but whilst you're trying to take your photos and enjoy the view you are constantly approached and hassled by the locals trying to sell you things. We'd been worn that it can be quite bad but nothing can prepare you for just how bad it is. I felt quite intimidated, despite being with my boyfriend and the rest of the group and tour guide. They will NOT take no for answer and even try and charge you money for offering to take a photo. Just say NO or if you do buy something or go for a camel ride, AGREE A PRICE FIRST! Our tour guide was very good and helped us as much as he good, at the end of the day the locals are trying to earn a living and probably make a fair bit from tourists.

After the viewing platform, we drove down the hill and walked round the Pyramids - again being hassled by the locals. We went inside one of the smaller ones which had a guy inside who was willing to show us around (after tipping) which was really good. We didn't bother to pay to go inside the Great Pyramid because we were just so hot! We then drove all the way down to the Sphynx and took lots more photos and walked around it. Amazing, and nothing can prepare you for just how fascinating it all is.

After the Pyramids we were taken (all very sleepy by this time) to a perfume & glass maker. (We were a bit disapointed that we didn't go the Cairo Bazaar but to be honest we were all knackered and very hot and weren't really in the mood to go shopping anyway) We were shown how they make ornate perfume bottles from scratch which was amazing and then also given a demonstration on some of the perfumes and scents that they offered. As much as I wanted to, I didn't buy anything because of the weight limits of our baggage going home but it was very tempting!!

We were then driven back to the airport all very weary and hot but having had an amazing experience. Our guide was absolutely fantastic, his English was amazing and he was incredibly knowledgeable.
I can't fault Sharm Excursions at all, they were amazing. Very helpful, friendly and all together provided a fantastic experience which truly rivals those provided by the travel agents. If you're considering doing a trip whilst in Sharm, definitely book with these guys but I would 100% do the plane trip and not the coach journey. We were knackered just after the day trip!

Thank you to Sharm Excursions for providing a trip which I will never ever forget - the Pyamids were just exceptional and I'm so glad that we booked through you.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Booked day trip from Sharm to Cairo by plane.
Paid the 10% deposit and was told to meet the rep in our hotel reception at 8.30 on the SAT and true to their word he was sat there when we arived. We paid the money and he gave us the itinery tld us someone would collect us at 4.45AM on the Monday morning.
LADIES BEWARE YOU NEED TO COVER UP as a young lady in our group didnt and the Egyptians were taking photos of her all day
We were collected from reception in a mini bus taken to the airport got on the plane which was on time and flew to Cairo the journey took about 45 mins no hiccups upon arrival and a lovely guide called Anya (i think) met us at the airport.
The trip through Cairo was interesting i dont think ill ever moan about english traffic/drivers again!!!!!!
The guide told us lots of interesting facts about Cairo, the recent troubles, their way of life etc as we were on our journey to the Egyptian museum.
We arrived and went inside all tickets were included apart from the entrance to the Mummies room which cost 10 egyptian pounds.
You cant take cameras which was a shame but was fantastic. We went upstairs 1st whilst it wasnt busy and we were glad we did as the museum soon filled up. The death mask of Tutankhamun was fantasic along with the solid gold coffin. Would have liked to have taken a photo but couldnt (well unless you slip the guard some cash like someone else did in a different party)but still good even so.
From there we had a boat ride on the Nile which was nice had a stop for lunch at a restaurant again lunch was included (apart from the drinks) but they werent expensive.
Back into the minibus to the Papayrus factory which in my opinion was not needed as yes they do show you how to make it for about 5 mins then they just want you to buy one.
From there it was to the pyramids.
They were fantastic HOWEVER all the other crazyness that surrounded it was not nice.
The tickets again were included unless you wanted to go inside the Great Pyramid the cost was 10 egyptian pounds.
The guide warned us not to let anyone take photos as they gladly do this for you but then want payment before they gve you your camera back, pedlars are constantly coming up to you to sell you TAT,people wanting you to go on camel rides and horse rides but they dont leave you alone. There are horses with carriages on and the Egytptians were racing them up and down the hills whacking the horses to run, people shouting cos the peddlers go onto their "patch" and constant pestering spoilt what could have been an excellent experience but thats just how it is.I would have liked to have walked round the pyramids but cos of all the crazyness we didnt which was a shame
The pyramid itself was worth going into bit of a battle getting up the Kings Chamber as you have to bend constantly,its also hot inside but yu definatly HAVE to do it
We then went a little further up to the top of the pyramids where we took some fab photos.
Next was the Sphinx again a magnificent sight but again lots of peddlers selling you TAT plus begging children which wasnt nice. If you can clear them from your mind and ignore then youll be ok.
On the way back we visited A "perfume factory" again an unnecessary stop in my opinion. They give u a speech about how they they grow all these herbs ec to make the perfume but someone else in our party heard the same exact speech from someone else in Sharm, as soon as they knew this they wanted to get rid of us but they were giving the hard sell.
Returned back to the airport and flew back at 8.30pm after an exhaustng day but well worth it.
If you can look past all the circus that surrounds the pyramids and sphinx this is definatly the trip for you. Would highly recommend Sharm Excursions again we are hopefully visiting again next near and will book to go to The Valley of the Kings
Thanks very much for an enjoyable day Mohammed!!!!!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We are a family of six and last October we decided to book this excursion whilst on holiday in Sharm for the second time. Having read the review, I felt fairly confident.

I have a daughter with a peanut allergy so was quite worried about the food etc. The communications were superb this side and the trip was booked. It was with nervous anticipation that the money was handed over but everyhting went to plan. We were met at our hotel and taken to the airport. Unfortunately our flight was delayed. Once in Cairo we were met by our private guide wand driver who were both courteous and spoke great English. We were given lots of time to explore the museum on our own as well as having the highlights pointed out to us. We paid extra for a samll boat trip which took us to the restaurant. The Pyramids were busy but we had plenty of time to explore. A great day was had by all and great memories were made.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
this went so straight forward, was met outside my hotel on the day requested to pay the final fee and was given my voucher, then the following day was the day of quad biking, was met outside the hotel by the aqents. Picked up 2 more tourist from other hotels then was driven to the quad biking place. It was great, drove for a hour then stopped for a drink which wasn`t expensive, then after a break carried on driving for another 40 mins and then we stopped again for another break and tea, and a quick camel ride, then finally we went back to base where we were met by our taxi bus home. The whole experience went without any problems at all and when i go back to Sharm i will certainly use harm excursions again.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Thank you to Mohammed for an AMAZING trip to Cairo. We had a fantastic time throughout the whole day and could not have asked for a better trip. The journey was long but it was worth every minute! Our tour guide Sherif was brilliant he had a fantastic knowledge of the history and looked after the whole group at all times.

We were originally nervous about the trip as it is so long and because of the recent events in Cairo, but we had no problems at all and all of the people we encountered were friendly and welcoming.

This trip is beyond value for money, I would recommend this experience to anyone. No one should go to Egypt and not see the Pyramids I am still amazed that I have seen them!!

Thank you Mohammed - when we come back to Sharm we plan to book some more trips! :)

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
From making initial enquiries on line, & receiving e-mails back the next day, we had no problems with this company. My wife & son did the Mount Sinai excursion. I was supposed to go as well but fell ill at the last moment-Mr.Mohammed was most apologetic that he could not give me my money back(not that I was expecting him to)but offered us a further trip at a discounted price.They were the only two people on the trip.Picked up at hotel on time by "Sammi" who was extremely knowledgeable & considerate. Reaching the mountain he organised the guide who took the two of them to the top of the mountain to see the sun rise (which was fantastic but FREEZING COLD!!) & was waiting at the bottom, on their return, to take them to the monastry. They said it was the most scary but exciting trip ever. We all did the quad bike trip later in the week which was just as well organized. Please use this company with confidence as they were cheaper than the main travell agent we booked with & just as reliable.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We cant thank this company enough for ensuring we had a wonderful and safe trip to Cairo. We arrived back to England March 6th and were worried that our trip to Cairo wouldnt be going ahead due to the problems out there. At first when the problems started our trip was cancelled and we were given a refund, but as soon as things were safe again, they notified us and we re-booked. We were a little worried incase things were still going on in Cairo, but we were assured that all would be ok- and it was! we are so glad that we decided to go ahead with the trip as it really was a once in a life time trip. My Husband, kids and I were absolutely thrilled!!
We also did the quad biking in Sharm, all I can say is... WOW!! so much fun!! its really beautiful in the dessert!!
Thanks a lot Mohammed, Lily and Co. 10/10

SharmExcursions General Review
We booked 3 excursions ( 1 day Cairo by plane, Sea Trip Tiran, Super Safari) and had one as a free offer. - And everything turned went well. - The guides picked us at the hotel, and were very punctual ( except for the sea trip). and the guides very very good in explaining the things. We had really good guide on all the trips. Abdal Nasser in Cairo, Ramadan on the Super Safari and ?? on the Sea Trip. Mustafa collected us to take us to the airport and to the extra offer which was "1001 night" and met us again in the middle of the night, to take us back to the hotel. - Can recommend "1001 night" as the extra free offer. - To our surprise most of the audience were Egyptians. So, thank you to all the good staff in Sharm Excursions.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Having read positive reviews prior to booking with Sharm excursions we did not hesitate to book our trips. We had initially booked 3 excursions. Upon arrival to Sharm our holiday rep managed to influence our choice of tour operator and cancelled 2 of our trips, obviously due to the concern about our health and safety!! However felt it was ok to continue one of the trips (to cairo by plane) only because it was too late to cancel.
I advise people not to let the holiday reps take advantage and cancel your trips and it looks like there is an element of commission acquisition going on.

Back to Sharm excursions we had a fantastic time in Cairo, we were picked up from the hotel as agreed and dropped off at Sharm airport with transfer instructions. Then were met by the guide Abdol at Cairo (Who by the way speaks great English and has a sense of humour, unlike what the rep told us).
We were given the tour of Cairo as explained on the website in a small group. The tour guide was very informative and explained each visit in great detail. We were with a pleasant group of people whom we shared the tour experience with.
I would definately book with Sharm excursions again and recommend to family and friends.
Thank you Abdol (& Mohamed) for a great time and lovely pictures that you took of us all.
PS Thank Uncle Adil the food was tasty.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked The 1 day visit to Cairo with sharm excursions in November and have no complaints what so ever.
we were picked up on time from our hotel and then were taken to the airport where the process was speedy and no delays.
Once we reached Cairo our tour guide Mohammed was wating for us and we were informed of what we would do for the day.
We first visited the Egyptian museam and were talked through the history and were allowed time to look around.
We were very impressed with Mohammed he was very knowledgable and passionate about the history and we learnt so much that day.
After a cruise down the River Nile we went for lunch which was very nice and then moved onto see the pyramids.
We got to the pyramids and were given about 45 mins to look around.
We throughly enjoyed the whole day and this was all down to mohammed.
Have recommended to my friends and will definatly be using you again.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Hi Sharm Excursions

We had a fantastic holiday in Egypt

We would like to take this opportunity to thank sharmexcursion, especially Mohamed and his team for making our trip unforgettable. The service provided was exceptional. They looked after us from the moment we got off the plane to delivering us to the hotel. We booked two excursions with them. First was a day trip to Cairo by plane which allowed us to spend more time in sightseeing. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The day was well planned by the sharmexcursion to get most out of a day in Cairo. We have visited the museum, Pyramids of giza, Sphnix, lunch on Nile, Egyptian art gallery and Egyptian perfume factory. We had enough time to spend at all the sights. The second excursion was a day trip to Abu galum which was an hour drive from sharm el shake, one of the best places for snorkelling. On the way to abu galum we visited the local people and got to know about their lifestyle. Camel ride along the sea was wonderful, snorkelling was amazing.

Thank you Mohemad for making our trip very special. We have already recommended sharmexcursion to several friends who are likely to visit Egypt in next year. I can honestly say, sharmexcursion is the best tour operator in Egypt. Their prices are very reasonable and lot cheaper than other companies. We also recommend everyone planning to Egypt to try sharm excursion to make your trip very special. We look forward to coming back and next time we hope to visit Petra.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Great tour of Cairo with excellent driver and guide. Nice small group, which made a big difference. Only downside is the airport on the way back but it is the same for all the tour operators. Our holiday rep tried to put us off when we told him we booked with Sharm Excursions. I think he was upset losing commission. Would definitely use this company again.

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
Petra was absolutely amazing. The great treasury cut into the rock face was better for me than the pyramids, and the view around Petra were fantastic. Day was very well organised thanks to Mohamed and our brilliant tour guide. It is a long day but would definitely recommend SharmExcursions and seeing Petra

Nile Cruise Luxor to Aswan From Sharm
What an amazing 5 days!!! Booked this trip with SharmExcursions having used them last year for a few small excursions, this time wanted to see some more of Egypt and what a good decision that was.

Saw loads of fantastic sights, and have tonnes of great memories of temples, Valley of the Kings, views from sailing down the Nile and loads more.

Would definitely recommend for those who want to see Egypt.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Hi Sharm Excursions ,
We recently used your company for 3 excursions we had whilst we holidayed in Sharm El Sheikh , Egypt . The first was a 1 day trip by plane to Luxor ( 02/12/09 ) . This was a fantastic trip and our guide John ( sunflower ) was terrific . His knowledge was excellent and although we never got a visit to the valley of the kings this was an excursion we will remember forever . The only dissappointing part was the lunch ( the chicken we and other guests in our party received was not properly cooked ) but overall we had a tremendous day and all thanks to John once again .
The second was a trip to St Catherines Monastery ( 05/12/09 ) and although our guide was good the time we spent there was not enough although it was sufficient enough to see all in the area . We went shopping to Dahab but once again the meal was not of a very good standard but this was not our guides fault .
Our last trip with your company was a day trip by plane to cairo ( 10/12/09 ) . This trip was memorable as well . We had another very good guide in Abdul and his knowledge was very good also . The trip to the Egyptian Museum was not long enough but this is understandable as it is a very busy place . We then had a trip on the nile to our restaurant THE FISH BOAT and this was of a very high standard indeed . Then it was onto the pyramids at Giza and the Sphynx . This was a sight to see and well done to our guide for taking some fantastic photos of my wife and I and other members of our party .

I would have no hesitation in using Sharm Excursions again and you must be commended for the knowledge and friendliness of the guides you use ( especially John ) .Also to Mido who came to our hotel ( sunrise island gardens ) and gave us all our travel details and supervised our travel to and from the airport .
If you send me the link i will leave a review on your website along with some photos we took on our trips and some Abdul took .
regards

SharmExcursions General Review
We booked 4 trips in total with Sharm Excursions and found them to be excellent value. A lot cheaper than the trips the rep tried to sell us at the hotel. Could not fault them on their service and even when there was a hiccup one day (which turned out to be not entirely their fault)they were very aplogetic and had the problem resolved within the hour. The trip to Cairo and the pyramids by coach (15th November), was a long day, but worth the journey and our lady guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. Had a brilliant crowd on our bus which made the day even more enjoyable, so thanks to everyone for that if your reading this - including little Wilfie! Will be recommending Sharm Excursions to anyone I know who visits Sharm and will be in touch ourselves on our next visit.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
My friend booked this trip to Cairo on the internet as part of my surprise 50th birthday trip and she had no problems. The reps and transport were where they said they would be at the time stated. The transport was comfortable and clean and we were given cold water bottles when we needed without asking. You can also leave your stuff in the car which is yours for the day. We were given plenty of time to explore the museum and pyramids. Our guide for the day was Abdul what a great guy he was. The poor man was not well on the day but despite that he made the day special. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the tour and we learnt so much from him. Thank you Abdul for such a wonderful day. We have already recommended Sharm Excursions to several friends who are likely to visit Egypt in the next year or so. We look forward to coming back and next time we hope to visit Luxor. Thanks Abdul love Sandra & Linda

What a wonderful day we had, TRUST is the big word you need to say to yourself constantly. It worked like clockwork, we were met when we were told we would be and looked after very well by Ibrahim. The transport was comfortable and clean and we were given cold water bottles when we needed without asking. I would recommend the company highly, seeing all the large groups which costed more for the trip and we had four of us with one guide and one driver for the whole day! Thank you for such a great time and we would like to try Petra next time....!

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
I booked this trip on the internet an had no problems the reps and transport were where they said they would be at the time stated.The guide whose name nobody could pronounce so he said to call him John, was very good and very knowledgeable about Egyptology.We did the nile boat trip and enjoyed Banana island.The only downside was the restaurant where we had lunch because the food was crap.Also we would have liked to have spent more time at Karnak Temple and less waiting time at the airport for the return journey.

Cairo and Luxor Tour from Sharm - 2 Days by plane trip
We booked the two day Cairo and luxor trip and paid the extra for a private guide.The trip was fantastic and the sights are amazing.
Our guides John in Luxor and Wil in Cairo were excellent.We were able to see all the sights at our own pace and as I had my 16 year old son with me we missed out the perfume factory which he was grateful for!
I would highly recommend Sharm Excursions and Mohammed is excellent and always answers his phone to deal with any queries.
Many thanks for two wonderful days.

Amazing.. returned from egypt yesturday booked 2 excursions with this company and they were both fantastic make sure you have a visa for cairo trip we never got ours when we arrived at sharm airport and had to go back the following day to get it and pay so just to save the hassle you can get one when you you go through passport control at sharm. We were so glad we done this excursion the bus journey we slept as the seats fully reclined and museum, the nile lunch it was really good value for money and lilly our guide was very truthful. would recomend and definately use this company again.

Cairo and Luxor Tour from Sharm - 2 Days by plane trip
We would like to thank all at Sharm Excursions for looking after us so well on our two-day excursion. Our first day was Luxor where we met up with John who is a fantastic and enthusiastic guide and teacher, and a thoroughly nice man. He looked after us from the moment we got off the plane to delivering us to the hotel, he also kept us alive by decanting his own water into our bottles during the hottest part of the day. You will definitely need a hat and plenty of water, about double what you think you need. You can always leave your stock in the car which is yours for the day. We learned such a lot from John, and he answered any questions we had for him from Egyptian history to how to go about tipping people and dealing with street-traders. The second day was Cairo, a much different style of guide this time, slightly more aloof. Cairo is a very busy city, and you do need a forceful guide to cut through the queues and traffic. We were given plenty of time to explore the museum and pyramids on our own and we do suggest you pay the extra to go inside the Great Pyramid. It is a very small and long passage, but well worth the effort and is adequately lit so youre never in darkness. Take plenty of money with you on both days because you will be taken to some nice shops where you can find souvenirs and gifts without having to deal with market-sellers. We have already recommended Sharm Excursions to several friends who are likely to visit Egypt in the next year or so. Much better value for money than the UK travel agency trips.

1001 Night Show
This evening was absolutely brilliant! There was a light show about some of the famous people and sights from Egyptian history. Then a show including belly dancers and other various performers. It was thoroughly enjoyable and a wonderful way to spend an evening to add a bit of variety to your holiday!

Glass Boat
This boat trip was wonderful to see some of the local sea life. The trip lasted around an hour and there was a guide on the boat who was talking about the different things we could see. Unfortunately alot of the people on our trip were italian and so the guide was talking more to them than us. But still an enjoyable trip

SharmExcursions General Review
Book your excursions with Sharm Excursions. You won`t regret it. They are much cheaper than the others and offer excellent value for money. I did the trip to Jerusalem, (I wanted to see more but the time was too short). I took the flight to Cairo, (the guide, Abdul was very good but the wait afterwards at the airport was really unpleasant). I did the camel ride and meal, (this was very different). I did the climb up Mt. Sinai, (this was at night by torch so the heat is not too bad and seeing the sunrise from the top is great...lots of people don`t make it to the top so there is no pressure to do so). I did the scuba diving, (after the training my instructor gave me the option of diving to 12 meters and doing tests to get a certificate. This was fantastic and my trainer was very good.) I also went parasailing through another company...with the money I saved from using Sharm Excursions. I will definately use Sharm Excursions again if I ever go back to Sharm. The only thing is not to panic if the driver is a few minutes late, this is probably due to another traveller forgetting their passport in their hotel room. Don`t bother looking for another excursion company...you won`t find any better than Sharm Excursions...trust me! Now where`s my cheque Mohamed?

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
We booked a trip with SharmExcursions and had a perfect time. Our guide, Yahia - or John as he liked to be called, was great... a really knowledgeable guy who showed us around at a great pace and was always full of stories. We had a great day and saw the sites of Luxor at a relaxed pace, which was needed as we were in nearly 49 degree heat. We would recommend taking a scarf to cover you neck and head, and it can be unbearable at times. The food for lunch was good, and in a good location. Highlights of the day were the obvious sites of Valley of Kings and the Temple, but Karnak was something special and the stop at Banana Island was amazing. The final part of the day was a tour on horse and cart around the city of Luxor, which is welll worth doing. Originally John said the price for the tour was was 120LE per person, but he managed to drop it down to 100LE per horse and cart. We would thoroughly recommend this, and if you managed to tour with John, you will find a very friendly knowledgeable guide.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We went on this excursion on 20 September and it was excellent. Abdul our guide was brilliant, possibly the best qualified tour guide ever as he has a Masters degree in Egyptian History and we found out so much about key pieces in the museum, it was very entertaining and interesting and we would definitely recommend this trip to others. Only thing to note is that the guy who picked us up from our hotel failed to mention that you need to keep your boarding pass as proof of your booking for the return journey, and also that when you arrive in Cairo airport the Blue Star rep will be in the main Arrivals hall and not in the first area you come to where most of the travel reps are.

booked 2 go 2 cairo by bus, it takes 6 hours to get there we took the 2 pillows of our bed hotel didnt mind so managed 2 sleep most of the way there, coach was lovely and air conditioned, our guide 4 the day was abraham he was lovely and had a laugh with him,went 2 the museum, then trip down nile 7.00 english was worth it tho, then 2 hard rock cafe food ok, pyramids was amazing the only thing that spoils it there is those poor horses that pull the carts as we got out our coach one horse collapsed and it was dragged back up and hit with a cane same as the other horses looked like they was all ready 2 collapse in the heat it was in the 40s never seen them given any water at all, so sad, anyway the trip with sharm excursions was excellent and i would book with them again very nice people on time and made sure u was safe thank you

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
The trip to Luor was fantastic! we were a small group of 8 for which I think we made the most of having the guide all to ourselves!!! His name was Zahid and He really knows his stuff and worked really hard even though we visit Luxor during Ramadan.
A big thanks to Mohamed who is very profesional and also agreed to refund us the money we payed to visit Petra as I (Rob) was not felling well for few days before the trip.

We would travel with you again to Luxor!

We went with Sharmexcursions.com to Cairo by bus on the 30th August and it was amazing! We had a fantastic time whilst in Cairo the only downside being the long coach trip there and back.

He was not only knowledgable but also had fun with us and was honest about Cairo itself.
Thankyou guys, you were brilliant!

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
We went on the 1 day coach trip to Cairo and from start to finish was an excellent day. Yes it was a 24 hour day having left at 1:00am but worth it. Coach was air conditioned, drinks on board and some lovely people. We arrived in Cairo and went to the Egyptian Museum first, Papryus Shop, Cruise down the Nile with Lunch, then the Pyramids/Sphinx and finally onto the Perfume Shop. The whole day was fantastic and Abraham our guide was very professional and knowledgable. I wouldnt hestitate to use this company again.

Bedouin Show & Dinner
Hello, having returned from a wonderful trip to Sharm -el Sheik I want to say that the above company have been brilliant. I booked them to transfer us from the airport to the hotel and for 2 excursions and dealt with Mohammed who was very helpful. However when we arrived at the hotel we found that there was no booking for us (but that is another story) but the rep Sadeek and Isan the driver did not abandon us. they stayed with us, drove us around town and took us to another hotel.


Next day when Isan --brilliant driver , we called him Micheal Shaumaker--and Mido collected us for the Bedoiun trip they were on time, very proffessional, friendly, funny, grat company to be with and they went out of their way to make it a great experience for us.


Then we went on the Mount Sinai trip with Mahmoud and his driver and they too were great.


After the bad experience we had at the start of the holiday these guys restored our faith and made our holiday really good.


We would have no hesitation in recommending them and would love to go back to Egypt and would definitely be booking this company again...wouldnt even think of using any other one.

Exellent day would highly recomend, we just got back this morning. Very knowledgeable tour guide, Mohammed i think. I did have trouble understanding him but thats because i have hearing problems and mixed with his accent did not work for me but was A ok for every one else. very child friendly and did pay attention to our four year old son ver well. only one down side is that you get left at Cairo airport for 4 hours at the end of the day without having had an evening meal and no facilities for this at the airport. If this had been offered as an extra we would have chosen it especially travelling with kids. overall though a day you will never forget.

We returned from Sharm on 5th August 2010. I booked some excursions prior to depature with this company albeit with some trepidation initially.
I need not have worried. Everything about this company is very professional.We did the day trip to Cairo by plane and had a wonderful and memorable day. Our tour guide was Abdul and he was so knowledgeable about all aspects of ancient Egypt,it was mind blowing. He spoke very good English and his sense of humour came free!
Mohamed organised our booking for us with two Excursions and pick up and drop off at the airport on arrival and departure.Everything went according to plan and was very well organised.
If you are visiting Sharm, I would have no hesitation in recommending this company for all your Excusions. They deserve to succeed in business because they are competitive,very efficient and extremely professional.

We decided to go home with the rest of our group on the first night as we didn't fancy a second night in Cairo as I was feeling ill, our guide offered us a refund which we said we didn't want as we had decided to cancel our second night ourselves, roughly 3 hours on our way back to Sharm our guide came to us on the coach and said he'd organised us a camel ride and bedouin tea with stargazing included instaed of our refund!!! Absolutely first class service from absolute first class people who work for a first class company!!! An excellent day in Cairo made perfect by this company!!! Thanks sharmexcursions.com!!!

SharmExcursions General Review
Hi there!!

Was just writing to you to thank you for your help when we were in Egypt! I have been so busy since i came back to Scotland that this email is long overdue and i do apologise for this.
We went on the Quad Biking and Cairo by bus tours just over 2weeks ago, and both were amazing. Abdu was our tour guide in Cairo and was great and really imformative and kind to us, everything we were looking for. The quad bikes were a reat experience and the guides were really friendly.

My only complaint is the men that pick us up from our hotels did not tell us where we were going in the minibus, and that can be a bit scary when you dont know anyone or the area. A few people did not realise we were being driven to a coach after everyone was picked up and thought we were heading to Cairo in a small mini bus. Also the time is nearer 8hours than 6hours as advertised by the time everyone is picked up. But these are minor issues.

I had a wonderful time in Sharm and Cairo, and would like to thank your company. If i ever come back to Egypt I will use your service again.

Thank you.

Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor from Sharm Three Days trip by plane
Before arriving in Sharm, we had booked the three day private trip to Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor by plane. Mohammed, the tour operator, was fantastic in responding to any questions and requirements we had. Once a small deposit was paid, we were informed that a colleague would meet us at the hotel. The Rep was on time, and explained the program for all days clearly. We were collected from our hotel and driven to the airport. Once arriving in Cairo, we were met by our Tour Guide, Maya. She was again fantastic, very knowledgeable, considerate, friendly. She explained everything clearly, and left us no room to ask her any questions. We visited the Pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, Muhammed Ali Mosque, Perfume Shop, A Papyrus Institute and had a lovely ride on a felucca to have lunch. The hotel arranged for us in Cairo was fantastic, with a beautiful view of the pyramid. Our second day was in Alexandria, again with Maya. Here, we visited the Catacombs of Al-Shukafa, Pompey's Pillar and the Library, with lunch, again in a beautiful restaurant towards the Mediterranean Sea. We then flew out to Luxor, and met our Tour Guide, Hamada. Again, the hotel was lovely. Our day in Luxor started with a hot air balloon ride over Westbank, which was marvellous, We visited the Factory of Statute, Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, felucca ride for lunch and the Karnak Temple. We had a slight problem with the tour guide's attitude, however, once we called and spoke to Mohammed, he was very considerate and arranged other attractions for us, to try and make our day more enjoyable. He was successful...lol...!!

These three days with sharmexcursions were so fantastic, that once we arrived back in Sharm, we also booked the Crocodile and Snake Show, Glass Boat and Alif Leila Wa Leila (1001 Nights Show), with the Rep being Mahmoud.

Sharmexcursions is a very well organised company. All transfers in vehicles were all fully air-conditioned. Time-keeping was great from their side at all times, and for all excursions, and all the staff we met were brilliant. They were friendly, helpful, and basically treated us like family, all going out of their way for us. If I was to ever visit Egypt again (which is more than likely), I would definitely book our excursions with them, as well as, highly recommend this company to all. I can honestly say, sharmexcursions is the best tour agency in Egypt. Their prices are very reasonable and a lot cheaper than other companies.

A great Thank You to Mohammed, Mahmoud, and Maya for making our trip most memorable and amazing.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A trip to Cairo basically sells itself and is a must do excursion when in Egypt. It is debatable whether to do the 1 day or 2 day trip. The day trip is long and the sights are seen at a rather quick pace. Despite this it was great. The guide, Will, was very knowlegable, friendly and helpful. Being a solo traveller he took the time to sit and speak to me at various points of the journey which helped make the whole experience better. I also met some nice people also on the trip.
My main concern before I left on my 1st trip with sharmexcusions (I booked 4) was the idea that the prices were 'to good to be true' given that this trip was 100 cheaper than through the holiday company I booked the holiday with. I had nothing to worry about the excursion was great and had the same itinerary as the more pricy options. It was probably better as the groups were smaller and we received a more personal service.
I will definately recommend this trip with Sharmexcursions to everyone.
Ensure that you bring LE1 coins for the toilets and small denominations for buying stuff. Prepared to haggle and to be pestered by the sellers in the area. Oh and free gifts from the locals generally require a free gift back, if you know what I mean. Great experience though.

Bedouin Show & Dinner
Possibly one of the best excursions. Relaxed, atmospheric and definately an experience.
We were taken by camel to the camp where we climbed a small rocky outcrop in the mountains to see the sun set. We then settled in the camp where we were fed lamb (the first time I ate lamb since I was a child and it was great), chicken, flat bread rice and vegetables. We then had some Hibiscus tea which was very good ( I later bought some to bring home).
There was the show, belly dancer, african dancers and another traditional and very colourful dancer. We had a go at the belly dancing and it was all in good humour. Some of the guys had a go at making the bread as well.
We ended the night with a little star gazing with a huge telescope. The guide for this was very knowlegable and pointed out the various significant constalations and showed us the moon, and Saturn through the telescope.
The whole excusion was led by Mahmoud (Moody) who was brilliant. Again, knowlegable and fun. He took the time to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the experience.
A great excursion for a chilled cultural evening. I would definately recommend this.
All in a

My boyfriend and I booked this trip after reading so many good reviews, and i can honestly say that it was worth every penny!! The whole group had such a great day and we couldn't have asked for a better guide....Abdou is hillarious and has so much knowledge about the history of the pyramids, sphinx and faros.
This was probably the best day of my entire holiday and I would definately recommend Sharm Excursions to anyone that plans a trip somewhere - I personally wouldn't book with anyone else!!
Thank you so much Abdou and Sharm Excursions!! :)

Having used this company for Sharm excursions we contacted them for a Cairo excursion in Cairo. They were 1st class as usual and Mohamed came up trumphs again. Our guide in Cairo (Will) gave us a wonderful day at the Egyptian Museum, lunch on the Nile, Pyramids at Giza, Sphynx tour and a perfume factory near a cotton mill. Trust me try this company 4 value for money - this day cost us 50.00 each all in - could not beat this for value !!!!!!!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This trip to Cairo by bus is well worth it even though its a long journey.
We booked it from home about 3 weeks before we went, paid a small deposit. Mohamed is very good, returned emails etc very quickly and professionally. When we got to our hotel we met with one of his reps the next morning as arranged and paid the balance.
He explained all about the trip. The trip on the coach is a long journey but time seemed to go quicker than expected also if you can sleep it helps. Cairo was amazing, very busy and an eye opener.
The pyramids were awe inspiring, amazing! We also got to see the Sphinx, museum, papyrus shop, perfume shop and a meal on a boat on the Nile... this trip was worth every penny. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. I will be using this company again in the future, excellent.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Great job , guys! We just returned from our trip to Sharm el Sheikh and it was absolutely super! I must confess that at the beginning we had our doubts regarding the trips and the security of these new adventures (for us, first time to Egypt), but I can really confirm that we had no worry during our holiday. The trip to Cairo, managed by Abdo and Hesham was the best ever, the Pyramids are fantastic, never seen something like this before. Abdu was absolutely sensational, told us a lot about Egypt's history, about the pharaohs and mummification, pyramids, kings and wars, has captured the attention throughout the entire walk to museum with extraordinary insights into Egyptian life. One well prepared guide as he gained our confidence instantly.

We entered inside the Pyramids also, challenged experience for all of us. The climbing through the Canyon could never be done without the help of Hesham, he did such a great job in ambitioning all of us to go till the end of the challenge. It was a little difficult for some of us but I believe that at the end we all had that feeling of satisfaction. We lived some moments when we did worry if we were able go all the way, but with the help of the Bedouin (sorry but dont know his name ) and Hesham we succeeded. It was a super adventure and it was worth the effort.
Bedouin world was marvel for us, we were very curious about their lifestyle, they were very hospitable and we felt very well there. Belly dancing girls and little party after relaxed us. Tea was great! Food was super! And ride camels ... wow! We have only words of praise.

You have organized the most beautiful trip of our lives, we met another world, civilization and was very nice.

So, we would like to thank you in this way for this wonderful experience and hope that we will met again. We welcome you in Bucharest, if you ever decide, Hesham you are our hero and we thank you very much. We loved you all very much and we are waiting you in Bucharest to see our world. You'll enjoy it, the weather is cooler here :)), No dessert here! :)).

Thank you. Hope will met again!

Bedouin Show & Dinner
Hello! Egypt has a lot of nice and interesting places with a lot of history to find out about. With the help of our guide HESHAM SAQR, we ride the camels thru the desert until a beduin tent.There we found out about thir history, the way they live. They presented us a special show, where you can participate if you have the pleasure. The sky with all of his stars we had them presented by an specialist. I don't want to say more, just that we had a great excursion with the help of our guide, Hesham Saqr,a great person. I wish you all a great vacation!!!

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
I booked this trip from the UK - feeling nervous that I was paying a deposit for something and may never hear from the company again! Needless to say I needn't have been worried. Everything was organised extremely efficiently and myself and my family went on our 1 day tour to Luxor in April 2010 - John was our guide. He was full of interesting information and was a fantastic guide, spoke english fluently and because there were a total of 6 in our group our trip was tailoured to our needs. It was extremely hot but an amazing day. Thank you Sharm Excursions but particularly John - he definately deserves more work and a pay increase!

SharmExcursions General Review
I have never booked excursions over the internet before but decided against leaving it until the last minute at the resort so I did an internet search and came across Sharm Excursions.com. The communications I had by e mail with Mohamed were spot on and we only paid 45 deposit for the 4 excursions the rest in cash when we got there. No problems at all with this now for each excursion..

Quad biking this was well worth the 20 each it cost. We visited a valley which echoed, and had tea in a Bedouin camp. Highly recommended and dont forget the scarf and sun glasses to cover your head and face.

Cairo by plane A very long day but well worth the effort. The museum with Tutankhamens effects is fantastic and well worth a visit with a very knowledgeable guide it we had only done this we would still have been happy with our trip. The pyramids were personally a bit of a let down being so close to Cairo and having people climbing all over them and trying to sell you things but we have seen them now and that is what we wanted. The only down side (and this is nothing that Sharm Excursions.com can do anything about) is Sharm and Cairo airports absolutely bedlam 4 flights leaving from the same gate with an hour of each other - no visual displays or information and in Cairo a very small waiting area, claustrophobic and a feeling of being herded like sheep. Mohamed arrived at our place of lunch (which was very good), after a trip down the Nile (extra 10 but again well worth it rather than negotiate Cairo traffic) to make sure all was well I asked if he could get the driver to stop at a pharmacy for some more sun block this he did and he paid for it now thats what I call service. Take plenty of sun cream and water with you they dont confiscate it at the airport you can take it through security and onto the plane unlike here in the UK!!!!!!!!

Bedouin Show and Dinner Brilliant personal guide and very smart car to take us the half hour ride saw the sunset over the mountains - ate very good Bedouin food drank tea with them could have smoked a shish pipe if we wanted to and then joined in with the home made dancing and entertainment all in all an excellent couple of hours. I should also point out that we were due to do this tour on the Friday, but after a phone call personally to Mohamed he changed it to the Saturday for us great service thanks Mohamed.
Overall I think we got value for money. If we go back to Sharm El Sheikh we will have no hesitation in booking with Sharm Excursions.com again.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
A fantastic, if tiring, day. Our guide in Cairo, Ibrahim, was a wealth of knowledge. There were 3 of us on the tour so we were able to ask questions at any time- unlike some of the tour groups of 30+ people going round.

In the museum Ibrahim really made us 'work' for the information he was giving us- asking us why we thought things might or might not have happened. He kept testing us us as well on facts he'd already told us and was just the thing to make this an even more memorable trip.

Lunch was OK- nothing to write home about and certainly not the 5* restaurant we'd been promised. But all perfectly edible.

The part of the trip where we went to the Pyramids and the Sphinx was superb. Again, Ibrahim's knowledge was excellent and the minibus took us from site to site. Ibrahim was always offering to take pictures and they came out very well.

We went to the papyrus and perfume factories- I could have done without seeing either of them personally but I guess they were both interesting.

The traffic in Cairo is horrendous and when our guide said at 4.30 that the day was over and we'd be taken for our 7.30 flight I imagined being at the airport for an age. It took as at least an hour and a half!

All in all, an unforgettable day and well worth the money.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday to Sharm; one of the highlights was a trip to Cairo with Sharm excursions. The whole day ran so smoothly & for us the real bonus was having our own guide, Radwi, who was amazing. We had not realised that this would be a private tour - so were pleasantly surprised to arrive at Cairo airport to find it was just the 2 of us & Radwi, with our own driver at our disposal for the whole day. We learnt so much about the history of your wonderful country & can't wait to return soon. We will reccommend Sharm excursions to all friends travelling to Egypt for a holiday. Thank you Mohamed for making our holiday so memorable.

Safari Trip Coloured Canyon and Dahab from Sharm
If you want value for money, then this day trip into the desert gives you just that. You get real exposure to the desert and the opportunity to clamber through the spectacular coloured canyon. Our guide was Hisham who was absolutely superb gven the age range of the party. Lunch was taken in Dahab overlooking the Gulf of Aqabar with the mountains of Saudi Arabia in the distance. a camel ride on the beach and also the opportunity to snorkel at Blue Hole were added bonuses to a trip the highly among the several excursions we booked through Mido at Sharm Excursions.

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
This was the last of my excursions during my holiday, arranged during my stay by the ever helpful Mido my guide for the day was John. Knowledgeable and friendly, John knows just how much information to give and when to guide and when to let you explore. The Valley of the Kings is stunning with Hapchepsuts Temple be absolutely stupendous but the jewel in the crown of the day is Karnak Temple. But it's not all walking round ancient monuments and lunch on the banks of the Nile pluds the opportunity of either a boat trip on the river or horse drawn carriage tour of Luxor is the perfect way to end the day in relaxing style.

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
Accompanied by Hisham & Mido this excursion was a pleasure, although a more comfortable camel would have been a bonus. The Bedouin tea was excellent and the opportunity to make bread the native way a real insight. The trip was topped off with the opportunity to watch the sun set over the mountains, and if you don't dfeel up to climbing Mt Sinai for the sunrise, this is the next best thing.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
This was the first of 4 excursions I booked with Sharm through Mido and the whiole trip ran like clockwork. Met by our tour guide Abdul in cairo, he proved to be friendly and able to pitch the whole trip at the right level, not mean feat in keeping the interest of a group consisting of 3 adults and 3 children under 10. Abdul was a master at being able to theme the tour, particularly in the museum where it would have been so easy to have overloaded us with information or lost the interest of the kids. If you want good photos at the pyramids then he know all the angles and became well and truly a member of the group by the end of the day.

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
I booked this excursion purely because it was there to be done and am I glad i did. Physically challenging, but rewarding all the same and the climb to the summit is worth the effort for the sunrise and spectacular views. Our Bedouin guide was excellent, getting us to the summit in good time, and sociable and helpful on the daylight descent to St Catherines. Our guide from Sharm was Hisham, friendly and helpful and able to pitch the tour around the monastery at just the right level for a group on somewhat weary tourists.

Hi Mohammed,

Just a line to say thanks for the great service provided on our recent day out to Cairo. I loved flying with PAS.

Please pass on our thanks to our guide for the day, Abdul. He made the day interesting and really brought to life the history of Eqypt. I would happily use the services of Abdul again and recommend him to others. Our group was small and this helped enhanced the experience for us. It helped that Abdul was flexible with the arrangements and possessed a good sense of humour!

Tell Abdul from me I've ordered my copy of the much recommended "The Bucket List"!


Best wishes

The trip to Cairo was really great. We had paid for a group trip, but since we were the only english speaking people for the day, we had the tour guide and driver just for ourselves. The guide, Abdo, was really good. He really knew what he was talking about, and he was also a great guy. We have no negative comments about the driver or the car either. Also the lunch restaurant was nice, it was a ship shaped building in Nile with good food and personnel.

Our second time in Egypt and our first time with Sharm Excursions. What a great company to deal with. We booked the quads and the intro dive from home. Mohamed could not have been more helpful. We exchanged several emails before our trip which was helpful. On arrival we were met next day by the local rep "Mousey" who was fantastic. We booked the glass bottom boat with him and it was as good as the other trips. We will return to Sharm in 2011 and will have no hesitation in contacting Mohamed to book our trips with him, including our airport/hotel transfers. His prices are VERY good and the service we experienced was 100%. Please try them !!!!!!!

Whilst we were on holiday in Sharm we received absolutely fantastic service from our guides and the drivers. The guides looked after us extremely well and were very knowledgable regarding the local area and the history of Egypt.

I thought that this trip was horrible. The first part was fine when a man was performing with cobras but when 2 chinese men started beating the crocodiles it turned my stomach. My children were very upset and we had to leave. I would not recommend this trip to anyone.
On the plus side our guide Hisham was fantastic.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Over Christmas 2009 I visited Sharm El Sheikh in a group and we took a day trip by plane to Cairo to visit the Egyptian Museum and the Pyramids at Giza.

We used Sharm Excursions who were excellent, we booked in advance on their website, with only a small deposit necessary. We were met at 0430!, taken to the airport, where we flew to Cairo, visiting the museum and pyramids and also taking in the obligatory trips to a "traditional" papyrus factory and perfume producer - these were informative and enjoyable (as long as its always understood that there should be no pressure to buy - which there wasn't). The pyramids and museum were amazing. I thought we might be rushed round the museum, which would have disappointed me, but were not, and had ample time to see the major exhibits.

I'm not usually a fan of trips, but this one was great value, particularly as getting into the museum is a nightmare (and is not well documented once inside), and there are lots of touts at the pyramids - no problem for us with our guide.

There was one small charge for a boat trip to our restaurant for lunch, which we knew about in advance, so no cost surprises. The lunch did its job, but nothing to write home about!

The organizer in Sharm and the guide in Cairo were absolutely superb: charming, efficient and extremely informative (I suspect the Cairo guide was ridiculously overqualified for his job). We had an absolutely great day, and as I'll be back in Egypt fairly frequently for work, I'll definitely be using this company again. Petra here I come!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We went with this company on the strength of good reviews from other travellers, and how right they were.
We were looked after very well, especially in Cairo by Lilly, she was a real tonic and was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The trip went like clockwork, yet there was no sense of urgency at all. There was time to sample some of Egypt's finest treasures and also time to relax. Sharm excursions make you feel safe and confident, which was important for us as it was our first time abroad. They handle the flights and timetable extremely efficiently.
We will certainly use Sharm Excursions on our holiday there this March and when we return in 2012 with our family.
Luxor was also a great day out, even if the guide was not so good at his scheduling and leaving a long empty slot before our return flight. However with very little encouragement, he was easily persuaded to arrange an extra trip up the Nile to Banana Island. Very hot there in June.
The Coloured Canyon is also spectacular. In summer it is difficult to pick out the true colours within the rocks, but the mountains and canyons are awesome nevertheless. Word of warning though, avoid the very hot summer months unless you are very fit, and take something soft to sit on ...... the canyon floor is very very very bumpy and hard on the coccyx, and it can reach 50 degrees and more there.
To summarise, if you want a real Egyption experience (with a rew little touristy bits included of course) then we would definitely recommend Sharm Excursions.

Hi Mohamed


I just wanted to say what an excellent private tour you organised for us to Cairo on the 29th January. Abdu (apologies if wrong spelling) was an excellent guide and our driver was also extremely pleasant. Having a guide who was so knowledgeable made the day extra special. It was also extremely kind of you to have Abdu take us for dinner, it was a wonderful experience as we would never have been able to find somewhere where all the locals eat without Abdu. He also organised the Sound and Light Show tickets for us to give us something else to see before we returned to the airport for our flight back to Sharm.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Guide - excellent
Driver - excellent
Man who accompanied us into the airport - also very good. Helped us get Visas. Sorry but I have forgotten his name !

Points to note
- You won't necessarily be on the plane with the same people you are picked up with. Whoever picks you up also appears to be doing pick ups from other companies.
- The plane used I didn't feel completely safe with. It seeemed quite old and the staff not very happy.
- Felt pressured to buy in the perfume shop. The man refused to sell small / half bottles. Got the impression he thought all tourists were rich.
- The papyrus shop - the prices appear to be set but are not. Wish we had been warned.
- We had to leave our bags in the car at some points, and my debit card was stolen at some point during our time in Cairo.
- would have preferred more time at the pyramids, and didn't get to see the Temple next to the Sphinx at all as we ran out of time.

Overall very good. The guide in particular I was very impressed with.

SharmExcursions General Review
I have just returned from Egypt Sharm El Sheikh yesterday. I booked most of my excursions with Sharm Excursions.com and am very impressed with the quality of service received. Mohamed Mahdy provided me and my sisters with a truly remarkable experience through the excursions and through his team of professional and friendly tour guides Zizo, Abdul, Mohamed Badawy and Mido. Each excursion provided exactly as promised and advertised on the website.

Abdul was our tour guide in Cairo on Saturday 30th Jan 2010, he was really informative and a great photographer. He took wonderful pictures for everyone when we visited the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Oh and a great dancer too. He also has a very good sense of humour and a wicked laugh. I can still hear his laughter in my head.

Mohamed Badawy was our tour guide for the camel ride, Bedouin dinner and star gazing excursion on Friday 29th Jan 2010. He made us feel very welcome and made us laugh though-out this excursion. I asked him many questions which he answered. He made us feel involved in this excursion, especially when cooking the bread.

Mido who was our main tour guide in the past week, was extremely helpful, kind and friendly. He helped us get our visas and upon cancellation of the dive, due to weather conditions, he took us to Old Sharm. He has been truly remarkable, providing us with great hospitality through-out the past week - Shukran Mido.

This has been my first holiday and it was perfect. Mohamed Mahdy made sure that everything ran smoothly without problems, from the beginning of each excursion until the very end. In fact, he was in touch with me via email before I had actually booked any excursions and after my booking, dealing with my questions, concerns and queries not only about the excursions, but about Egypt in general in a timely manner. I am really happy that I booked with Sharm Excursions and have absolutely no regrets. Sharm Excursions have satisfied and pleased me with their services. I would highly recommend Sharm Excursions and would definitely book again with them in the future.


A big thank-you to Mohamed Mahdy and his team Zizo, Abdul, Mohamed Badawy and specially to Mido. It all seems like a magnificent, magical dream. Stay in touch and best wishes.

Just to say a big thank you to Mohammed and his team for helping to make our holiday fantastic. We booked trips to Cairo by plane, personal tour and the Quadbiking Safari.
At all times we felt safe, we hit a few problems when flying in and had severe delays, this was no problem as Mohamed immediately re-organised our trips for us to more suitable days and times.
The trips are very well organised and smooth running, the team at Sharm Excursions are all very confident, knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
The Cairo trip was great and the Quad bikes were fabulous fun, we enjoyed so much, nothing was too much trouble, after the storm and problems flying to Egypt it even felt as though Mohammed had organised the lovely weather for us, lol !
Prices with Sharm Excursions are lower than with Holiday Companies and, from talking to people who had been on trips that way, it felt as though we had had the far better deal and and fabulous experience.
So, once again big thanks to a great team of people, Medo, Maya, Issam, Zizo, Mahmoud, Mohammed who made our stay so enjoyable.
Would not hesitate to recommend you.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
The problem with staying in an all inclusive hotel, is that there is a certain reluctance to leave the bar at the end of the night. We had lost count of the number of vodka shots that had followed cocktails, but we had some vague recollection of going to bed at one in the morning and getting up at four in the morning, to be ready for this trip. So yeah, blurry eyed and totally hanging, we waited for the bus to take us to the airport. The bus was late and we had all the horrible thoughts that we had been tucked up like a pair of very English kippers. fear not, the bus finally picked us up and after a lot of faffing about trying to pick up a couple of Germans, who refused to get out of their pits, we finally made our way to the airport.

An hour later and we are dumped out in Cairo airport. There was a vague instruction to meet our local guide somewhere, but that was lost in translation, or vodka addled ears, and we found that our local guide was nowhere to be seen. Panic set in and the horrible feeling that it had all gone wrong was setting in.

Someone pointed us to the exit and we sort of shuffled along towards what can only be described as Wesley Snipes in Blade. This guy was standing there with a long leather jacket on, designer everything, including the shades.

It was a case of, "Oh my God, are we about to give ourselves up to the Cairo Mafia????"

As it happened, the guy was pure salt of the earth, he warned us of the pitfalls and kept up very safe. He was also very funny and witty.

The Museum was OK, if a little tired.

The Nile boat trip was ace.

The Nile lunch was very good.

The papyrus shop was good.

The pyramids and sphinx were brilliant.

The perfume shop was ok but by then, so totally hanging...

The flight back to Sharm was later than expected, so hanging about for far too long at Cairo airport, which has nothing other than a small cafe.

All-in-all, a good company who had our interests at heart. It would have been so easy to let us find our own way and fall down at the money points, but they kept our money in our pockets for us.

If you want a five star service, use this company :o)

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
I booked 3 excursions with this company and I can tell you I was not disappointed.This was my first time in Egypt and I was so glad that I used this company. There were 3 adults and 1 child aged 5 on my trip. I was collected from my hotel on time by the lovely Essam from Sharm Excrsions and driven in a lovely car and he offered us refreshments during the car journey. he was very professional as well as helping us enjoy our trips. He took photos for us and nothing was to much bother for him. He was really helpful form start to finish. When we went on the camel ride and had Bedouin tea I was so glad that I did not book my excursions with my holiday company because they were driven there in a big coach and there was a long queue of people waiting for the camel ride. We had a very personal experience and did not have to queue for the ride and in fact we were given our own private ride on the camels just the 4 of us in our group and tea with the local man and they even taught us how to make bread. We had the best day ever. It was also cheaper than my travel company. So thankyou Essam and Sharm Excursions for making our holiday so wonderful we shall see you next year when we come back.

I would definately book with Sharm Excursions as they are very professional and take their job very seriously. Its a comfort to know that when there are companies that dont care about customer care and professionalism.
All excursions are fairly priced and yes you may find a cheaper price for the same excursion but i cant emphasise how amazing the customer care was. You are in small groups so you can relax and not worry about missing out any information or getting lost in a big crowd. Every excursion me and my friends had gone on had no more than 6-7 people so we had the opportunity to ask more questions and get a great service.
A BIG thank you to Mahmoud who did alot for us! He organised transfers for us to and from the Old Market and even helped us when it came to prices, telling us when to haggle and what was reasonable! He has become a life long friend!
If you are looking for excursions that deliver a service next to none with honest tour guides with a professional manner then this is the company to book with. But if your looking for cheap,tacky and not well thought out excursions that arent safe and dont care for their clients then do book with other companies...but please be warned and be safe. There are alot of companies that will rip you off and hide costs that you will have to pay for when on the excursion.
We will be returning to Sharm next year and we will definateley book more excursions with Sharm Excursions! See you guys soooooon!!!

Safari Trip Coloured Canyon and Dahab from Sharm
Absolutely fantastic day out!
We were picked up early in the morning (8.30) and taken to the venue. It was a small group so you can be assured that you will be looked after by your tour guide. We had Mahmoud who became more of a friend during our holiday! He was absoluteley FANTASTIC!
Be warned....on the way to the coloured canyon there is a 15min run of bumpy and uneven road which made me feel sick...and i didnt have breakfast...so DONT have a big breakfast...trust me! lol
I didnt take any trainers to sharm with me...so if youre reading this before arrieving in sharm please do pack some trainers...I had to do it in my flips flops and it was hard!
It is quite slippery goin down into the canyon and climbing back up was quite hard also. I was quite lucky to be with my 2 guy friends and Mahmoud also looked after me!
Its a hard walk..so make sure you pack some water and also there are no toilets in the actual canyon so do go before!
There are places where you have to climb down high places so if youre scared of heights...this ones not for you im afraid!
After the canyon you are taken to Dahab, in a small yet very sweet shopping mall. They are very friendly here and dont hard sell...me and my friends got a bargain price for our Kartoosh so i would get it from here! It cost 10 GBP in silver!! And they even explain what each letter in your name mean...I didnt find anywhere else that this!
After shopping you are taken to lunch where you have an option of what to order...again you dont get this option everywhere...
It was a cute restaurant at the seafront...Chips were reaaaallllly nice! You have to pay extra for drinks!
The day came to an end and we all returned to our hotels by 19.30.

1001 Night Show
An interesting evening, learning about Ancient Egypt, narrated in English. I was completely amazed at how the belly dancers were moving...absoluteley fantastic! There is also a bazaar filled with souvenir shops which are always fun to visit if your confident you wont get duped into buying things you dont want!
We were picked up by our guide Mahmoud from our hotel and were taken to the venue....
It is an evening that was enjoyed by myself and my friends!
There is also an opportunity to ride a horse or a camel at an extra cost!

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
We did the evening trip which was fantastic!
It was well supervised and we felt safe all the way.
It was alot of fun but the only thing i will mention is it is VERY dark so if your not comfortable driving in the dark do the day trip!
You get a dvd and a photo at the end at an extra cost but they make for good memories!
A must whe in Sharm!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
early start to the day...4.30am! But i much rather wake up for 4.30 than wake up for 1.30 am and take the bus to cairo!
We were picked up on time from our hotel and after collecting all passengers we were taken to the airport for departure!
We arrived at cairo at 7.30am and found our guide for the day Ibrahim waiting for us. We were escorted to our mini van and within 5 minutes had started our journey towards the Cairo Museum.
The museum was fascinating and our guide Ibrahim spoke of all the history behind the many artefacts that were there in perfect English, but unfortunately due to being on a day trip we only saw the main peices!
We then went to a papyrus museum where we saw a demonstration of how papyrus is made and also had the opportunity to purchase any we liked!
We also enjoyed a meal on the river Nile after a short boat trip (which costs extra - 10 GBP) but was worth it!
After lunch we then proceeded to the most exciting place that we all anticipated! The Pyramids!!
We spent 45-50mins wandering around the pyramids and were also allowed entrance into them (1 free but any others you have to pay extra). There is also an opportunity to ride a camel around at an extra cost which i did! Definately worth doing...u dont see the Pyramids everyday!
We also saw the Sphinx which was amazing but it was too crowded as expected so be careful!
The day came to an end and we were transferred back to the cairo airport and arrived in sharm by 2200. Our guide was waiting for us at the arrivals hall and we had a comfortable ride back to our hotel!
The day trip by plane was worth it as it is comfortable and you have more time to do things! The guide Ibrahim spoke throughout the trip and gave us alot of background history of cairo and explained traditions that were still being observed to this day! its a must to see the Pyramids!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We've just got back from two fantastic weeks in Sharm. We booked Cairo by plane, Quad runner and Sea Trip Ras Mohammed with Sharm excursions and these trips were the highlight of our holiday. The Cairo trip was brilliant and our tour guide Abdul knew everything concerning Egyptian history!! Well worth booking with this company, great service and prices, would use again if we return. Thank you!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We were collected from our hotel bang on time and dropped of at Sharm aiport, where he insured we checked in ok. The flight was very quick and very comfortable. Miya met us at Cairo aiport and she was our guide for the day. We had some worries such as being pestered but felt completely protected by Miya who was brilliant and we were very relaxed the whole time. We went to the museum, the pyramids, the sphinx, a perfume/glass shop, paper shop and had a boat ride on the nile. Miya's english was brilliant!.we were back in our hotel by 9.45pm A fantastic day!

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
My cousin,sister and I went to Sharm from 15-22 October 2009 and booked three excursions with Sharm Excursion after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed.There are some things that we think that people should be aware off, like the climb to Mount Moses is REALLY a climb,make sure and eat properly the night before and have tablets for motion sickness for the three hour drive to Mount Moses from Sharm.Also a bit of stretching to exercise your legs before will be a great help and of course WATER for your climb to the top with something for breakfast cause you will need it :)Sadly we three did not make it to the top because my sister got sick and our guide left us which was rude and scary cause it was nearly three in the morning so we had to walk back down the mountain us three women alone with a flashlight but thank God the guys on the camels did not interfere with us but walked along side as they were more interested in getting us on the camels for a ride down the mountain.We made it to St. Catherine's Monestry at nine in the morning after waiting for five hours for the group to come down from the mountain.The advice we will give is that if you are not feeling well from the drive to Mount Moses or even if you start to feel unwell before your climb,let the guide you came with on the bus know right away cause chances are that you may not be able to make it to the top so instead of sitting in the cold for five hours like we did, let your guide know in advance because to climb Mount Moses you change guides there and the ones they change to are not as accomodating as the ones you come with on the bus.We enjoyed the vist to St. Catherine's and we chalked up the rest to 'an experience'. Our next excursion was to Cairo,we opted for the seven hour drive to Cairo :( If you can afford it PLEASE take the plane because although the bus is comfortable,you cannot sleep properly on it and we were up for the entire trip,they do have interim stops but you feel a bit sick on the trip.When you get to Cairo though you know that it is worth it to see the pyramids but then the drive back sends you down a couple of notches again and you are completely drained when you get back to your hotel.The Bedouin dinner and camel ride was the bomb and we thoroughly enjoyed it.Our overall view on Sharm Excursion is that it is SAFE,(cause we were worried being three women alone),affordable,professional and FUN.We were apprehensive to book online so we sent an email saying what excursions we were interested in on the Sharm Excursion website and they replied and we got a contact number and we called and asked if we could book when we got to Sharm as we were in the UK.They said yes and when we got to Sharm that same night we called and in about an hour Mido and Mahmoud came and we told them what excursions we were interested in,we paid for the trips got our receipts and the following day the bus was promptly at our hotel to pick us up.I must say that we were were impressed with their punctuality and professionalism.We highly recommend Sharm Excursion to future visitors to Egypt and a great big thank you to Mr. Mohammed (I hope I spelt the name correctly) your company really makes sightseeing fun and eases ones mind.Mido I hope you looked up Trinidad and Tobago on the internet and realize how far we came from to visit your country :)Take care and every continued success in the future.Lastly,make sure and get the Egyptian visa before you travel to Egypt cause if you wait till you get there,you spend quite a few hours in the airport waiting to get it.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We like alot of others were sceptical about booking and paying for an excursion in this way rather than through your holiday rep, but I have to say it was the best thing ever. The start of the journey was a bit chaotic at Cairo airport, there was alot of shouting and hand jestures from the guides and not alot of information being relayed. But on the flight we got and 50 mins later we arrived in Cairo. When you come off the flight all the tour reps are waiting for you, do not be alarmed if there is no one to meet you, they were outside at the front of the airport. Abdel was our guide and we had a small party of 10, which was lovely as we had our 9 yr old son with us. Abdel was full of knowledge at the Cairo museum and we opted for the river boat down the Nile, it was nice to get out of the hectic traffic. The Pyramids and the Sphinx were all theat we had imagined and more. Abdel was very kind to take our son into the pyramid for us. indeed he was very good to him all day explaining all that we asked and showing us the best place for photographs. Beware of the hawkers as Abdel said nothing is for free and he kept them at length. I have to say that flying is the better way to go rather than a 6/7 hour bus journey there and back and it also gives you the luxury of a smaller group. I have nothing but praise for Abdel and Sharm Excursions and when we return to Egypt we will use them again.

SharmExcursions General Review
We booked 3 trips with Sharm Excursions.We paid the deposit online and then on the first day of the holiday Mahmoud met us in the reception of the hotel so we could pay the balance.The first trip we did was the Coloured Canyon and Dahab.Everything was great, we were picked up on time, and our guides were very knowledgeable.The Canyon itself was hard work, especially for me as i had a bad headache from the sun.We took my 2 sons, aged 10 and 12 and they absolutely loved it, squeezing through small gaps and looking at all the different patterns in the rock, after the canyon we headed to Dahab where we stopped at a perfume factory, then off to lunch in a lovely restaurant right on the edge of the sea.
Next trip we did was Mount Sinai and St Catherines Monestary.Again we were picked up on time and headed off the St Catherines, once we got here our guide explained to us about the trip, we were given a mountain guide and a torch and then we made our way up the mountain.The children only managed to walk 1 km so me and them got ourselves camels to take us to the top.The scariest and funnest experience of my whole life, but the boys loved it. Next morning we met our guide at the bottom of the mountain and went off for breakfast in a local hotel, then back off to the monestary.
Once again, the guide was very imformative, telling us all about Moses and Mount Sinai.After this we headed off home.Trip back to sharm took about 3 hours.

Our last trip was meant to be to Serabit El Khadim, but our guide changed it for us and we did the Safari, Abu Galum and the Blue Hole.We had the bus to ourselves for this trip.Firstly we went into the dessert and had bedouin tea and looked at the rocks etc.
Next we headed of to Dahab, stopping of at a cafe/shop for refreshments.Once in Dahab, we were taken to hire some snorkelling equipment, then off to the beach to ride camels to the Blue hole.We had about an hour and a half to snorkel then had lunch in another great cafe called Titanic,food was once again fab and we all had a great time.After this we went to a papyrus shop and then it was back to Sharm again, very sadly because this was our last trip.

I would like to say a huge thankyou to Mahmoud, he is absolutely fantastic! He was brilliant with the children and very friendly, and aslo our driver on the last day (cant remember his name) he was great too.I will definately be using Sharm Excursions again and will be recommending them to my friends.
Thankyou for making our holiday a brilliant experience .Anna, Glenn, Jacob and Ryan Giggs :o)

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Well what can i say, we havent long arrived back from sharm and i can honestly it was the best experience ever all thanks to mohamed and the guys at sharm excursions. we booked the crocodile show (review seperate) and cairo by plane. We paid in advance a few days prior to going to cairo which although seems strange hading over cash to someone in a car there is nothing to worry about. We were picked up promptly at 5am from our hotel and were driven to the airport, all of the 12 people on our mini bus were english which was good. Upon arriving at the airport we were given our tickets and qued like everyone else to get o the plane, to our surprise when somebody saw our tickets we were pulled from the crowd and put straight onto the plane (all good). We arrived in cairo 40mins later and heres where the excitement began. We were met by our guide abdul who was a youngish man that was educated to uni standard and spoke perfect english. Abdul gave us the breifing for the day as we travelled through cairo in our private mini bus. Our first stop was at the king tut museum which we spent a couple of hours in with abdul explaining everything we would like to know and talking to us about the history of the artefacts in there. When we finished in the museum we were given the choice to travel to the restaurant for lunch (inc in price) either by mini bus or by boat for an extra 10, everyone decided on boat and we were driven to a private boat on the nile. What an experience just our tour travelling down the nile seeing all the restaurants etc and abdul pointing out the sights such as the ex presidents house and the 7* four seasons hotel. On the way abdul asked us what we would like to eat and he would pre order it. When we arrived at the restaurant (on the nile) abdul the legend sorted a good table for all of us to sit together and we were shortly waited on with our meals. This was surprising as everyone else at the restaurant had the buffet that was on offer but not us we had a proper sit down meal relaxing rather than waiting just to dig into the rice like the other 100 people in the restaurant. After our meal we went to a papyrus gallery, not much to talk about there although there were some very good pics and we were shown how its made. Now the best bit, off to the geizer the pyramids!! We arrived at geizer to a magnificant sight of the 3 main pyramids. instantly we were taking photos then abdul told us to stand on this rock and pass him the camera, he showed us different poses to do to get those pics everyone wants like touching the tip of the pyramid and leaning on it. Abdul took the time to this for every person in our group and did all 5 poses for everyone. This was great as it seemed like everyone else there was trying to get these sort of photos but not to good yet abdul knew the perfect spot and they came out amazing!! (check the pics) he also told us what was a good deal or not and stopped us from being hassled by sellers in his own language (he wouldnt repeat it so you can imagine what he told them). We walked around and were looking at one of the pyramids when abdul asked us for our attention and began showing us some postcards from a lttle boy selling, there were 10 in all and had pics of the pyramids etc on. they were all laminated and in envelopes, abdul said how much do we think they are to which some people guessed maybe 6. Abdul replied no only 5 pound which would have been a good deal as they were high quaility but he meant 5le which was around 60p!! it was the boys lucky day as everyone in group snapped them up. Abdul asked if we wanted to go into one of the pyramids but we cant take our cameras in as it will damage the hyrogliphics. We went other to the pyramid with abdul and could see loads of other tour groups and guides (all new abdul) and on the entrance to the pyramid were tourist police to ensure no cameras were taken inside. Abdul asked us to wait for a sec whilst he and his mate (another tour guide) had a word with the police. a minute later abdul said you can go in now ad take you cameras! would you belive it that he had swung it for us to take photos inside the bloody pyramid!! he even said use the flash if you want dean. I didnt need telling twice and was straight in there past the police and taking photos. could only handle a minute inside though as no air at all and very cramped but none the less got to take pics inside whilst other people in their were wondering how we were allowed to, great!! After the pyramid is was onto the sphinx and with abdul we didnt even need our tickets. the sphnx was packed as you can imagine so was hard to get good pics, we were only there 5 mins when the police stared to blow their whistles as it was time to close the gates so everyone had to leave. We were pretty dissapointed which abdul could see so he said carry on taking photos, very hard with a police officer in your face telling you to leave so we started to go, at this point abdul told our group to wait and carry on taking photos and in not to nice a word forget the police lol very hard when they have machine guns. abdul went over to the police and another little word ensured the sphinx was closed to everyone except us!! yep he had sorted it for us to carryon taking the pics we wanted and the police just walked past us, one of them even helped us up to the ledge to take pics, abdul is seriously connected as everyone was outside the gets looking in wondering how we were still allowed in there, well it was down to abdul. we managed to get all the best pics again due to abdul knowing the right spot to make it look as though you were kissing the sphinx and one pic that some people may disagree with but me and him found it hilarious plus it was his idea (check the pic). after we finished there we were asked if we wanted to go to a perfume makers which was a friend of abduls so we did. the owner spoke better english than most of us and even cracked some irish jokes, he got us all a drink and let us smell all kinds of perfumes with the option to buy if we wanted, there was no hard sell unlike in naama bay. After we finished it was back to the airport after around 8pm so a long day was had. Needless to say we all tipped abdul although some people make me feel ashamed as they only tipped 20le about 2 which considering the work this man put in for us not to mention we all had chilled bottled water on the bus meant to be 2 bottles each but due to the heat it all got drunk so abdul bought another 30 bottles for us for free. we tipped 200le between me and my girlfriend which considering it was for him and the driver it was like us both tipping 5 to each of them which is nothing for the day and experience we had due to the one and only abdul. I cant praise this man enough as he made us have a trip of a lifetime so just to say thanks alot abdul your a star. just so you remember who we are we were the ones who tought you were steep and slope meant lol. sorry for the long winded review but felt it was worth while. thanks again to sharm excursions.

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
I was determined to visit the Pyramids during my holiday in Sharm el Sheikh and decided to try sharmexcursions.com which came highly recommended on this web site. I would have prefered to fly but being a family of four this just wasn't financially feasible for us, so we chose the bus trip instead.

The booking procedure was straightforward - a series of emails to and from Mohammed and completing a booking form. I was still a little nervous about meeting the rep on the first morning of our holiday in order to pay the remaining balance. The rep appeared at our hotel on time, took our payment and even had the 1.00 change (small change being something Egyptians tend not to possess)! My nervousness continued as he had very little to say and didn't hang around very long. I was so relieved when the bus turned up at 1am to collect us.

The trip was well organised and very professional. Our guide, Lawrence, was just fantastic (albeit a little crazy). He is such a knowledgeable, informative and enthusiastic man and he kept us all entertained all day long. He keeps to a strict timetable which worked well.

Although a very long and laborious journey it's definitely worthwhile. The highlight of my holiday.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
What a fantastic day! We certainly were glad we payed the extra for a private tour. My husband and I and our two daughters (12 & 14) so enjoyed this day. Abdul was our knowledgable guide and we learned so much from him.He has been working as a guide for 12 years but was still very enthusiastic about his subject. He also took some great photos of us at the pyramids! I must mention the driver who also contributed to the day. Always on time and ready to pick us up so there was no waiting around.All went smoothly from the transport from our hotel, the flight and the return journey. This company is professional and provides excellent value for money. We also booked quad biking with them.
Just a few tips, take more money than you think as you will need as you will be tempted at the perfume shop! also we did not realise you have to pay extra to see the royal mummies at Cairo museumn, and we did not have enough on us. At the end of the day we had three hours before our flight and our guide recommeded the light and sound show at the pyramids.He knew we did not have the money on us but agreed to lend us the amount and we could pay back the guide that would collect us for quad biking. This was a great show. I thought it may be tacky, using modern lazers and music to tell the history of the great pyramids, but it was exceptionally well done and very dramatic. Thank you to Abdul for trusting us. This is a highly recommended day out, very tiring but well worth it.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
Simply - what a brilliant day. From the people transferring us to our great guide Abdul. An early start but you need the time. The Egyptian Museum is facinating - even to someone not so into history. The Pyramids & Sphinx - amazing. Lunch was really good too. The optional trip along the nile not so worth it. The Papyrus shop was good too. I fully recommend this trip. Only bad thing was not enough time in Egyptian Museum - I am unsure even a whole day would be enough. Excellent day. Thanks.

Snorkeling Trip Ras Mohamed or Tiran Island
I booked 2 trips with Sharm Excursions and they were both excellent. The Sea Trip to Ras Mohammed was amazing. It was totally relaxed, the boat was not too full and the lunch was lovely. The crew/captain were really pleasant as were the transfer guys and the snorkling was out of this world. Really cannot fault the day. (Mohamed even rearranged the trip - no quibbles - to another day when illness unfortunatly struck the night before!) Sharm Excursions were excellent. Thank You. xxx

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Fantastic Day and thanks to Sharm Excursions. Our guide Ibrahim was excellent. We were joined by 8 other Super people for the day and we thank them for helping to make it a memorable experience. Thank you Alan & Eve, Andy & Andrea, Jo Glenn Bex & Louise, we really enjoyed your company. We were picked up on time and everything went like clockwork. The Museum was great and Ibrahim was a star. His knowledge was superb and he made sure we got prime position at each Exhibit before rolling out the facts to us in excellent English. We found the museum spellbinding and King Tut's Mask and Sarcophagi are unbelievable. We moved on to our trip down The Nile to the restaurant and the meal was very good. The papyrus factory was very interesting.The Pyramids and Sphinx took our breath away. SEEING really is believing! If you have ever felt like going then DO IT! It really is a WOW moment. One of the best days of our lives.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
The best 20.00 you'll ever spend. Fantastic trip and one you'll never forget. If your'e going to a trip then this is it. We're going back next year and we'll be booking more trips and going on the quads at least twice. DVD is offered of the trip, quality is not brilliant but for an extra 10.00 well worth it to relive the memories. Just book it, you'll regret not doing this trip.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
what a wonderful trip.

The day couldnt of gone better, we were picked up from our hotel on time, and taken to the airport where we took the short journey to Cairo.

The museum was full of artifax and loads of history, was a bit hot in there as no air con though.
Next we took a boat trip accross the Nile to have lunch, which was fantastic
Next up for us was a trip to the papyasis factory and purfume shop, where you can buy local products.
They really did save the best til last, with the Pyramids, what a view, absolutly amazing.

It is a long day (17 hours, but worth it) my advise is drink plenty of water as it was really hot when we viewed the pyramids.

If you get Abdul as your tour guide you are in for a great day, full of knowledge

Great day in all, thanks again, cant recommend this company enough.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for a most wonderful trip. We were very well looked after by our guide Abdelghany Nassar and enjoyed our trip to Cairo. Nothing was too much trouble from start to finish and I must thank you for the most wonderful memories. I have been describing my holiday as the best ever and this I truly mean. We will certainly be back in the future and we will certainly be booking some more excursions with you.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We found Sharmexcursions through internet. The email information we received from Mohammed about the excursions was very accurate and correct, so we decided to make the booking. We were a little reluctant to have paid cash in advance to the representative that came to the hotel, as they have no office address, just a tel.number to contact. However, on Thursday, as agreed in the bookingconfirmation, they picked us up a 05:00 AM at our hotel in an airconditioned van to drive us to Sharm airport. Check-in without problems,charter flight in an old plane, but don't worry, you'll get there. We arrived well in Cairo early in the morning. Remember to keep your boarding pass of this flight because you need it also for the flight back, they forgot to tell us that when we left Sharm el Sheik! At Cairo airport, our super-top-fantastic guide Abdo was waiting for us. He accompanied us the whole day and gave us so much information about Egypt, its history, the city, the people and was a really fun guy too! We had an absolutely great day and were so happy to have booked with Sharm excursions: only small group of 10 people, good airconditioned van, safe driver, excellent guide, while other groups were travelling along in a bus of 40 persons. The museum was amazing, the pyramids and sphinx incredible. Optional boat trip on the Nile is highly recommended. Lunch alongside the Nile was nice too, additional stop at papyrus factory very interesting. This excursion to Cairo was truly a highlight of our holidays. It is a long day, you arrive back in Sharm at 22:00 PM, but really worth it. If to say something less positive, it was too bad that at our arrival back in Sharm airport we had to wait for a very long time for many other passengers arriving from different flight excursions, before they brought us back to our hotel. If we were to repeat this trip, at our return we would take a taxi from the airport to the hotel, because after such a long day with so many fantastic impressions, you don't want to wait to get back to your room, take a shower and have a drink to enjoy the fun you had the whole day in Cairo. But in total: very well recommended.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Booked three trips in all with Sharm Excursions. Cairo by plane, Quad Biking and the boat trip to Ras Mohammed. Like other people I was quite dubious at handing over a large amount of money. I need not have worried as on the day of each trip they were there on time to collect us from our hotel. My daughter and I whent to Cairo by plane and we had a lovely day. Lille the guide is a lovely lady very informative and very knowledgeable. At the pyramids Lille advised us on what to do to avoid being pestered by the locals which was good advice. Quad biking was brilliant. I was quite a bit nervous at first and it took me a while to get used to the bikes, but I soon got the hang of it. We chose to go at sunset when it would be cooler and came back in the dark which was very exciting. The final trip was the boat trip to Ras Mohammed which again was brilliant, the boat was large and spacious and the food brilliant. They took us to three different areas to go snorkelling which is amazing. Word of warning you need to take your flippers as well as your snorkell mask with you as you cannot go to two of sites without your flippers on. All in all good value for money would recommend using them again.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Me and my partner booked a private trip to Cairo through Sharm Excursions on our holiday in June 2009 and so glad we did. By far the best trip we have ever been on in all our holidays. From the moment you are picked up from your hotel you are well looked after to the moment you get back to your hotel again. Our guide on the trip was Dr/ Abdelghany Nassar and he was fantastic answered all our questions and looked after us through out the whole trip without him I think the trip would not have been as good. I would recommend Sharm Excursions over any other company and will book with them again next time im on a holiday to Egypt. Lastly thanks to Mohamed for the phone call at the end of the trip to make sure everything was ok and the driver who drove us around on the bus.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
EXCELLENT! You have got to do this trip its is very good value for money. Pay the extra 30EGP at the pyramids & you get to go inside the second one .. all i will say is you need to walk in a crouched possition & it hurts your legs.If you get the chance to get a boat up the nile for an extra 30EGP make sure you do it as it is very relaxing.We had Abdul as our guide who was very good, we had a good laugh throughout the day which was very nice, there was only 3 of us in our group which was great because Abdul got us through the crowds & to the front of any queue so this gave us mor time to do things. A GREAT DAY OUT .. WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT ... ABDUL IF YOUR READING THIS THANKS FOR A GREAT DAY YOU MADE OUR DAY SPECIAL!!

I travelled with 3 friends to Cairo having booked in advance online. The booking process was made very easy and Mohamed came to meet us in our Hotel to collect the final balance and provide us with our excursion vouchers, as planned in our final email communication.
The excursion to Cairo was fantastic, with our lovely tour guide Lily adding to the enjoyment of the day. She was extremely knowledgeable and knew how to avoid the crowds in the museum, taking us to see the main areas of interest as well as providing us with some free time to view the rest of the museum at our leisure. She also identified and explained in detail about some of the artifacts which we could then relate to when at the pyramids and the papyrus institute.
At the papyrus institute and the perfume factory there is opportunity to buy the products, so have some cash or a credit card with you. There is also the option to take a boat trip on the Nile and a camel ride at the pyramids, so again be prepared with some cash.
We moved very eficiently to and from the airport and between the different attractions. Lily was in regular communication with the driver of the airconditioned mini-van, who seemed to appear with perfect timing as we finished at each venue.
The whole day was amazing and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
The quality/personality of the tour guide certainly increased the enjoyent of our day - thank you Lily!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Back from sharm a week now and missing it already,such a memroble place made even more so by the day trip to cairo to see the pyramids,what an awsome sight.The day started off being picked up at our hotel at 6am ,short drive to the air port and a quick flight to Cairo,where we met Abdul our guide for the day,from there he took us to the museum where he knew absalutely everything about the antiquities and answered all our questions.Tut-Ankh-Amons burial mask is a sight to behold.
After the museum Abdul took us on a boat trip up the Nile(extra small charge)to a buffet resteraunt from there we went to the papyrus museum ,no hard sell and we bought 3 peices one with our family names on it, so cool.After that it was on to a perfume shop free refreshments and ice-cream .After that Abdul thought it would be a good time to see the pyramids he was spot on as it was suprisingly quiet 4.00pm ish,we were able to get great pictures and get inside the second pyramid with no queues,on our own,it was awsome.We could have stayed for the light show but my daughter who is 6 was starting to get tired and hungry, so Abdul took us to a favourite resteraunt of his, massive burgers and to many chips,very cheap.All in all it was won of the best days out that we have ever had and cant wait till next year to go to luxor.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We were quite sceptical before booking but figured if no-one turned up we'd only lose the 7% deposit. As planned Mahmoud came and picked the rest of the balance up the day following our arrival in Sharm. We were a bit panicky incase no one turned up on the day for our trip but our fears were not necessary.

Mahmoud picked us up at the hotel at 6am and took us to the airport. The flight was short and we were picked up the other side by Wahyell (not sure of spelling). There was only 5 of us including the guide all day and I cannot say how good the day was.

As it was a small group we had a lot of opportunity to ask questions and basically be taken the places at our own pace. Our guide was amazingly knowledgeable and friendly. There was no hard sell from him, and indeed he protected us from other beggers/sellers outside the attractions.

When I return to Sharm, we will have no hesitancy in booking with Sharm Excursions again!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked this excursion with Sharm Excursions after reading the positive reviews on this website and TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. When we arrived in sharm, on our first morning we met Mahmoud in the lobby of our hotel who we gave the money for all 6 of our excursions and he gave us vouchers and explained to us what would happen on the excursions.

Cairo by plane - we were picked up early morning by minivan and taken to the airport, check in was very quick and hassle free, after the very short flight (40 mins with free refreshments) we arrived in Cairo where we were promptly met by the guide Abdel.

Firstly we went to the Egyptian Museum of antiques, which was very good because we got to see all the stuff that we wanted to see without seeing the things that would be of no interest to most. We were given a tour of the museum for about 80 mins then given approx 40 mins free time to explore.

A point to note, take water into the museum, because there is no air conditioning and a young lad that was on the tour with us almost collapsed because of the heat and humidity.

After this we went on a cruise up the river Nile (this is an optional extra, which costs 50LE, however it was worth it) to the restaurant, which was an open buffet restaurant where the food was nice.

After this Abdel told us it was better not to go to the pyramids straight away because it would be too busy and too hot as we were in the peak time of the day for the heat (12 - 3). He suggested that we go to the Papyrus institute first as it is air conditioned. We went there and watched how papyrus is made, which was very interesting and the papyrus on sale in the place was very reasonably priced, with no hard sell. We bought a couple of bits which cost about 20 each. There are numerous individuals selling fake papyrus around Cairo and Sharm so it was good to know that the stuff we bought there was genuine.

After this we went to the pyramids, which was excellent as there were very few other tourists there, so we pretty much had our free run of the place. We were only in a group of 8, which allowed for a far more intimate tour.

A special mention had to go to the excellent guide Abdel, who took time taking pictures with everybody's camera helping them get humorous memorable photos of the pyramids and the sphinx. He was a very funny, attentive and friendly guide and nothing was too much trouble for him. He also stopped several times to get us water because of the heat, which was very much appreciated.

After doing all of the touristy things at the pyramids etc, we went to an Egyptian perfume factory, where we were given a free soft drink and shown how Egyptian fragrances are made. Again there was no hard sell here.

After this we were taken back to the airport. Again a quick flight, then picked up at sharm airport and taken back to hotel.

An excellent but long day, well organised by sharm excursions and another mention to the guide who made the day special for everyone.


I booked 6 excursions with Sharm Excursions, these were: Cairo by Plane, Camel Ride, Quad Runner, Super Safari, Bedouin Dinner, and Sea Trip to Ras Mohamed. All of which were well organised and great value for money. Most were at least half the price we were offered by Thomas Cook.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Our trip to Cario was fantastic!A very long day due to 6 hours drive to Cario however when we got there it was amazing! We spent a good two hours in the musium, then had our own mini nile cruise where we cold relax and see the sites of cairo. We then ate lunch in a lovely restaurant. Followed by a trip to a Papiyris factory where we were shown how they were made and finally got to go and see the pyrimids and Sphix - amazing! I booked 5 excursions with Sharm Excursions in total for my holiday and I was very pleased with them every single time! The service was fantastic and Mohamad was lovely. These guys are great to book with and way cheaper than Thomas Cook andThompson! I recommend these to all of you!

Excursion to Petra from Sharm by Plane ( Stopped Now )
Just got back from a 2 week holiday in Sharm. Me and my partner booked the 2 day trip to Cairo and Luxor with Sharm Excursions because they were cheaper than everyone else. We were a bit worried because we were asked to pay for our trip in cash GBP once we arrive in Sharm and we thought it is a bit odd that they would not take credit cards.
But on the day we were picked up from our hotel and on our way for this two day adventure. It was AWESOME!
We've been well looked after, the trip was very well organised and our guides very good. We got advice and information on everything required. In Cairo, someone in our group had to be taken to hospital because of blood presure and our guide went with him while the rest of us joined another group for a couple of hours. It felt good to know that if anything would happen they will be there to help. The guides seemed happy to change the schedule to suit everyone's needs.We were a group of 15 in Cairo and only 3 of us went on to Luxor the next day and we had a car and guide, Mohamed, to ourselves for the day. Mohamed really made our day, he took us to the bank when we need it, after we finished sightseeing took us to a shop where things were much cheaper than in Cairo and took us for a coffee and a traditional tea as well which were extra but we didn't mind because we had such a great time.
Overall we both loved the trip. All transfers to and from the airports were taken care of by Sharm Excursions as well as luch on both days and hotel over night in Cairo. We didn't have to worry about anything.
We would deffinetlly use Sharm Excursions next time we go to Egypt because they are so much cheaper than others and we had a great time.
They really are excellent!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked Cairo by Plane and the trip to Ras Mohammed.

Cairo - The tour guide (Abdel) was an legend, he had an awesome sense of humour and was really helpful throughout the day. He stopped people hassling us and also made our trip fun. There were only four people two couples which were like a private tour, the day was well planned and we spent ample time at every attraction in Cairo/Giza. I really cannot sing Abdel's praises enough he was absolutely amazing. Mohammed was very kind and understanding as we missed our first appointment to pay the final money.

Ras Mohammed - Well looked after, tour guide was nice bus driver thought he was a bit of an F1 Driver... which was entertaining. The only downside to this trip is the Russians, no offence to them but they have no courtesy or manners and will more than likely annoy you.

Overall, if you want excursions just use these. They are safe, friendly and make the day great for you. Out of 10 I would genuinely give them 10.

SharmExcursions General Review
My trip was organised at very short notice, (from Gatwick) before we flew out to Sharm, we left UK mobile nos on the e-mail we sent to Sharm Excursions from Gatwick Airport, and borded the flight, we did not know stepping on the flight if anyone there would meet us in Sharm for transfer to our hotel!!!! on swithing on our mobiles at Sharm Airport a reply was awaiting us from Mr Mohamad (senior), step outside the terminal and look for your names on a printed sheet for pickup, (young) Mohamad, who picked us up with a driver was excellent, we were worried about paying for trips in cash, Ciaro by plane, Quads, Glass bottomed boat and return transfer, However on time, every time Young Mohamed arrived to transport us to the various venues, the quads were the best trip we had, (go in the evening) highly recommended, The Pyramids were also exceptional, the Guide knew everything, he talked non stop about Egyptian culture, the contents of the Egyptian museum as the tour progressed, the Pyramids and surrounging statues, all from when he met us, until when the tour finished, all in all, you will do the same Cairo Trip here as you will with the other large tour operators Thompsons Cosmos etc, with one exception, your group will be much smaller, you travel in a well presented air conditioned comfortable minibus, and because your group is smaller, you will get the oppertunity to ask more questions and actually hear what your tour guide has to say, all tours to Ciaro visit the pyparus shops and the perfume factory ( ask your tour guide to do something else with you) this part of all the organised tours, no matter which compamy organise the tours, is nothing more than High pressure sales, after a long day in Ciaro, it's the last thing you need, im sure your guide will accomodate. OVERALL I WOULD RECOMMEND SHARM EXCURSIONS TO FRIENDS. thank you Mr Mohamad. PS: book on line, cheeper trip first for discount on all following trips

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Based on others opinions on Tripadvisor we booked excursions with Sharm Excursions.

I dont want to sound too sycophantic but what an excellent decision it was. We took the Cairo flight and do-it-all-in-a-day trip. We also took the snorkelling excursion to Ras Mohammed.

Cairo: a perfect day within the context of what it was. Mohamed, the proprietor, really is a local bag man, a Mr Fixit, of the first degree. When you are in a place that you do not know you need someone like this in your corner and I cant recommend his services highly enough. His staff were knowledgeable, thorough, obliging, helpful and really made it their business to ensure that their clients/ guests got full value.

Our guide in Cairo was Lilly, a lovely girl who was very open and candid about all aspects of the day plus the realities of living in a modern Muslim country. I will not reveal all of her recommendations, thats her business but she is a fund of useful tips and hints. We were in a group of seven, three of us, an American couple and another English couple. We were chauffeured round Cairo in a modern air conditioned mini bus, what a crazy compelling town! We spent as leisurely a day as its possible to do cramming some of the worlds most important heritage into a few hours and still finding time for a coffee at the museum and a chat with Lilly.

We did the things that we wanted to do, the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza plus the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, we also visited an official papyrus gallery/shop, had a great buffet lunch aboard a floating restaurant on the Nile and took a bonus felucca cruise on the Nile which is a great way to see Cairo. The Pyramids, Sphinx and museum are things that, if you get the opportunity, you have to experience so there cant be a bad review of them unless written by a philistine! The other things were in the detail and it was handled superbly well, an exquisite day and worthy of recommendation to anyone. Truth be told a day is far too short to do justice to these things and we will return and take them in at a more leisurely pace; we were on a tight schedule and the trip was right for us on this occasion.

We also took an excursion to Ras Mohammed national park. The boat was fantastic, the lunch was great, the crew were friendly sea dogs and the tone was just right. There were eight of us in total, five snorkelling and three scuba diving and the trip kept an intimacy and informality that can easily be lost in a large group. At our first stop, there were three snorkelling opportunities, we were joined by a group of some twenty to thirty novices who all went in the water together, splashed around, sent any self respecting marine life scurrying off, shouted and whistled to one another and it seemed like watching the charge of the Light Brigade. We, on the other hand, were supervised with a light touch and left to our own devices which was great and allowed you to explore the reefs at your leisure. Clearly tourism is the main driver of the economy in that area and there were plenty of boats around, our captain was knowledgeable and steered us to locations that no one else was at which allows the more shy aquatic creatures to feel comfortable and offers the snorkeller or diver a more rewarding experience.

We would have liked to have taken more trips with Sharm Excursions but our itinerary was pretty rigid and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of booking excursions. I corresponded extensively with Mohammed via email beforehand and he was prompt and helpful with my questions and his replies were specific and useful. We spoke to other people who had been on excursions organised by holiday company reps and felt sorry for them and relieved for ourselves as they told us about their experiences being herded around and not being able to do what they wanted because of the impersonal nature of their tour. Needless to say their trips also cost significantly more (Cairo 160.00 pp with Sharm direct as opposed to 225.00 pp with a well known tour operator whose parent company just went bust, Jun 09, for example) than we paid for a much more personal service.

Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor from Sharm Three Days trip by plane
Thank you Mohammed for a great trip and for looking after us so well. We booked the 3 day trip to Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor to see all of the main sites; all of our guides looked after us well, were knowledgable and spoke fantastic English. If you want to see the real Egypt this is the way to do it. Special thanks to Wael our guide in Alexandria who we had such a good laugh with.
We also booked our transfers, the boat trip to Ras Mohamed and the quad biking to watch the sun set with SharmExcursions and every trip was well organised and great value for money.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
I have just returned from Egypt and had booked two trips with Sharm Excursions, a private tour to Cairo and a private tour to Luxor. I echo other reviews for this company and have no complaints. I have visited Cairo before and was part of a mass tour, this trip I had my parents with us(62years) and felt that a private tour would be better for us. It was amazing we were transported from our hotel privately and on arrival at our destination had our own private driver and guide, on both trips the guides were fantastic, very knowldegable and both spoke perfect english. I took so much more out of ths trip to Cairo and it was all down to Abdul and the way he explained everything.
Mohamed was also fantasdtic and even phoned the morning we left for Cairo at 0620hrs to make sure verything was going to plan.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone and the additional cost for the private tour is well worth it.

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
We were very impressed with the service of Sharm excursions. Having been moved hotels and not knowing how to contact the company we were surprised when mohammed tracked us down and told us all of the details for the long night ahead. Our guide Ramina spoke excellent English amongst other languages, he immediately put us at ease and treated us as a friend rather than a customer. The stop at the Bedouin tent was a welcomed surprise and a real insight into egyptian culture. When we arrived at the mountain we were greated by a bedouin guide who escorted us to the top with great support and humour. The sunrise was breath taking. Once in the monastery, Ramina guided us through all areas with great knowledge and enthusiasm. Many thanks to all involved including 'Crazy Driver'. A life changing experience and excellent value for money.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We travelled to Sharm el Sheikh in March 2009. We wanted to see Cairo and, after reading reviews on the internet, we booked with sharmexcursions.com for a one day trip by plane. It was an absolutely fantastic day. I was a little reluctant to book online but as the reviews were so good, and as the deposit was only 30.00 I didn't think we had too much to lose. I received a confirmation email which explained that Mohamed would come and collect the money from our hotel which he did. We had only just arrived and he took the time to talk to us about Egypt which was a nice touch.

The following day he collected us from our hotel in a minibus. There were 4 couples in total which was a nice number. He got us onto the plane (somehow we didn't have to queue like everyone else which was very good!) Almost as soon as we arrived at the airport we were on the plane which was good as it was very early in the morning and I wanted to sleep longer. However, we didn't get a chance as, after looking at the views for a little while, we had arrived. Our tour guide was there at the airport to meet us and we had an airconditioned mini bus and very nice driver waiting for us. Both of them spoke very good English.

We did everything that we were supposed to but the guide also gave us options of things we could do which was really good, for example, he asked us if we wanted to go on a boat on the nile- something that we didn't think we would have time to do. Those in the group who didn't want to do it got the minibus to the restaurant and the rest of us got the boat. We did get taken to a few shops, which is normal in Egypt. We went to a papyrus shop (where we watched papyrus being made- we didn't realise it was a shop at first because it was really interesting), a perfume factory (we'd cottoned on to the fact it was a shop but it was still really interesting to see how it's made) and an Egyption cotton shop. There was no pressure to buy and if you didn't want to go in, you didn't have to. I didn't feel like these were annoying as we got to see how papyrus and perfume were made.

I think the only down fall of the day was that it is very long (which it needs to be to fit it all into one day) so if you can, maybe do the two day excursion. We couldn't because we were only in Sharm for a week. If we had been there for two weeks we would have done the Luxor trip with sharmexcursions too as they were so good.

You can book excursions when you are out there but I liked the fact that we didn't have to worry about booking and it was a little cheaper than most of the other options.

If you are going to Sharm or Cairo you will have an absolutely wonderful holiday!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We travelled to Cairo by plane in April 2009 with Sharm Excursions and WOW what a trip! I was SO apprehensive about handing over nearly 1,000 in cash, IN ADVANCE, to a man I hadn't met previously,in our hotel lobby - and getting a tiny receipt in return - with a promise that the driver would collect us on the agreed date for our day trip to Cairo. Had Del Boy been in the vicinity he would have not hesitated to tell me I had been 'tucked up, right good an' proper!' BUT - how wrong can you be? The trip was everything it had promised to be. DOot to door minibus, rep at the airport to greet and guide us on to the next stage of the journey, another at Cairo, and a personal guide to accompany our party and another (total 8) throughout the day. The last part of the trip was a visit to a perfume factory, but our group asked if we could miss that part out, and our guide was happy to oblige. We were so pleased with this trip, we then booked the quad bikes - and were equally delighted with that one. Small tip though - book the cheaper trip first - you get 5% off subsequent ones.

We had a brill time in Egypt. My Boyfirend paid for the trip to Cairo by Plane which was 10 times better in hot heat. Sharm excursions were fab to us. Couldn't of ask for better to be honest. Met a family who went on several different excursions with different companies and they said that Sharm Excursions was the cheapest. So def go with them.
Our guide was really good and kept you interested in everything.

We would definitely use this company again if we came to Sharm El Shiekh. They are very helpful and pleasant. I organised the excursions on the internet before we left England and there were no problems whatsoever. You can get your visa at Sharm Airport without having to apply for it from the Egyptian Embassy in England and pay in dollars or sterling. This company takes Sterling, Dollars or Egyptian pounds which was a great help. I would recommend these to anyone

My wife and I had a smashing time on this jaunt on the quad bikes. It was a first on the bikes for both of us and my wife was a bit apprehensive, until we got started! She thought it was absolutely brilliant and I honestly thought that when we finished she was going to say ' I want one'. I must admit that I was expecting a sand dune type safari rather than the flat rugged terrain but it was still enjoyable. Not a true bedouin tent where we stopped for tea but a horseshoe shaped enclosure. We arranged to buy the DVD of us on the safari but when the chap came the following day with it at the hotel it was the wrong people and had over an hours travelogue before it actually got to the safari. Pleased that I checked the DVD on my portable DVD player before I handed over any cash, that aside, we thought it was a great afternoon out and would defnitely do it again

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
My wife and I had a wonderful time. An early start, picked up just before 5am but we were actually sitting on the plane to Cairo before 5.45am!!! We had a great guide in Cairo, (Shariff and his driver Ayeman), visited the Egyptian Museum and Shariff's knowledge was exceptional. Then we booked on to a private boat ( cost a little extra ) on the Nile for our trip to our lunch at a riverside restaurant ( buffet lunch was acceptable, no alcoholic drinks ) Then off to the pyramids for a couple of hours which was great then had an hour to kill in Cairo before getting our plane back to Sharm El Shiekh. Had a great day which was to our itinery and would recommend this to anyone, especially the private tour guide, well worth the extra cost.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Hi, we had just returned from our trip to egypt,Feb 09. We booked with sharm excursions before we left after reading reviews, and would like to say what lovley freindly people they were.we arranged for transfers to and from our hotel and this all went great.On The Thursday our party of 4 were collected as arranged from our hotel for the trip to Cairo.we were greeted by Mohammed who was brilliant, told us sooooooo much about the history of things. And gives a great commentry as you go along in the mini bus.We were taken on a 10 minute nile cruise, that was unexpected but was great as we got to go on the nile.He took some great pics of us at the pyrimids....He even waited while we queued for a KFC at the sphinx took forever but he thought it funny!!The driver who he called michael suhmaccer, and this he needed to be, he was really nice to.....I would recommmend this company to any one and if i return next year which i hope i shall be booking the Luxor trip with them and my transfers.
So thank you very much mohammed for such a great day..

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Mohammed for making our trip to Cairo so fantastic. I can honestly say it was on of the best days of my life. There was my husband and i and another couple on the trip and Mohammed spent the whole day making sure we were happy. The other couple were great fun and we had a really good laugh with Mohammed who has a great sense of humour. I've wanted to see the pyramids all my life and wasn't disappointed. We are going back to Sharm next year and i would have no hesitaiton in booking sharm excursions again. Want to go to Luxor next time. Thanks Mohammed.

Camel Ride & Bedouin Tea
I will admit to being a bit wary of booking with this company as we had been advised by our travel company to book everything with them. On the plus side all elements of the trip I did were fantastic. I had constant emails about the trip after enquiring and booking. We were met in the morning by who I think was Mohamed ( Sorry I don't think I got your name!) who took our money and then confirmed details about the trip in the afternoon. First we were picked up and driven to the desert where we met the Bedouin Men and rode a camel. After we went to their tent and taught how to make their bread and drink their local tea. It was a great experience to see how Egyptians really live. Our guide then walked us up to the top of the mountains to watch the sunset. The couple of hours that we spent on this trip were fantastic and definately worth the money. We did this trip on my birthday and will definately be a memorable one! Many thanks for everything!

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
I really enjoyed my trip to Mount Sinai with you. Walking in the dark feeling you could almost touch the stars up above was beautiful then as the sun began to rise, all the mountain tops suddenly appeared before us. Every corner you turned on the way down to St. Catherines Monastry opened up another amazing view. Thankyou very much. My only problem was that I wasn't in Sharm long enough to go on another of your excursions. I will be back to go diving and hopefully to go to Cairo.

Hello Mohamed,

I wanted to e mail you to say thank you for a fantastic trip to Cairo on 8th December.

Your representative Mahmood meet us to collect the money and give us our vouchers,
he was very nice and explained everything.

On arriving at Cairo we were meet by Hassan, who was fantastic all day with all of
us, he was very informative and very funny, and he was a pleasure to be with.

I will certainly recommend your company to anyone that I know is going to Egypt.

Thank you and your colleagues for making our trip very memorable.

Have a Happy Christmas and a Happy 2009.

Regards

Don't be nervouse about booking with this company,they are very profesional,from the start to the finish.Mohamed kept in contact with us from the day we booked,any problems or questions we had were answered quickly.We booked three trips with Sharmexcursions, flight to Cairo,quad bikes and Bedouin dinner i have written reviews for them all.Mamoud met us in our hotel right on time at 9am and went through what we would be doing times we would be picked up,( just a note to Mohamed cousin Mamoud has good english he just needs to speak a little slower for us brits lol )Thankyou Mohamed for making our holiday one of those that you never forget and it was great to meet you in person as our guide in Cairo.When we come back to egypt we will defo book with you again.Just a note to people thinking of booking with this company the people in this company arn't working for you they become your friends showing you around there womderful country.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
DO THIS IT'S GREAT!! We had so much fun on the quads we had a single one each,best way to do it come on ladies u can do it neither of us had been on quads before but u get the hang of it quickly.We were right behind the guide best place to be we thought stand up over the rough bits saves your butt lol.Just watch the guide stopped at a Bedouin house for a drink,helped catch a runaway camel wich was a laugh and at no extra cost ,,then off again to echo mountain where we shouted our names echo was great,
off again to a bedouin camp for some tea or a cold drink i liked the tea,have a go at the shisha pipe i don't smoke but i had a go lie there relaxing.Remember you are on holiday these people do this for a living so bye there drinks whats a couple of pounds or dollars means a lot to them ,anyway after our last stop it was of back to base as the sun sets over the mountains this was a 2 hour trip so make sure u do the 2 hour one ,we had a great we wanted to do this again but ran out of days,,when we come back it's first on our list,,Have a great time we did and i know u will ,,

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Up early,picked up by Mamoud to go to the airport with 2 other couples,escorted through the airport no hold ups no problems.Met in Cairo by Mohamed a little late but he was stuck in traffic wich we found out is a nightmare ,so he was forgiven.Mohamed spoke excellent english and has a great knowledge of everything Egyptian,stopped at a local cafe for some tea and coffee,was great to sit with the locals,then on to some mosques and then to the museum where Mohamed took us on a trip through ancient Egypt we loved it all. Then a boat trip to our river boat restaraunt,for a lovely lunch.Piramids next ,they are simply amazing,we sat at the base of Keferins pyrimid see Mohamed i listen lol,,loads of photos when u go there just say no u will understand when u get there but Mohamed looked after us realy well.We went to the sphinx next and it's incredible get your guide to help you with special photos and remember again just say no.Then papyrus shop and perfume shop then back to the airport for our 8pm flight back to Sharm ,one of the best sites i must say is Cairo traffic at home time thank you so much to our driver he was amazing all day kept us safe and got us to the airport on time,,a very long day but truly it's a day you will never forget thankyou again to Mohamed and his staff for looking after us so well..Oh i forgot to say we did this trip on the 2Dec08,,

Mount Sinai (Moses Mountain) Excursion from Sharm
My husband and I just returned home from Egypt (December, 2008). We booked several excursions with sharmexcursions.com. Our Mt. Sinai experience was unforgettable! Our tour guide spoke English very well. Our Bedouin breakfast was delicious! Just a few words of advice for Mt. Sinai climb: wear warm clothes, bring snacks/water, and don't forget your camera! You'll want to show the sunrise to everyone you know!

Safari Trip Coloured Canyon and Dahab from Sharm
This was a very interesting trip!! For Starters we did not go to the coloured canyon, instead we went to the "White" Canyon. The trip started with us rally driving through the dessert in a 4x4!! which was quite eventfull in itself!! Once arriving at the canyon, we pretty much had to abseil 30/40ft down the canyon with just a rope, which was not expected! There was about 2hrs walking involved! We stopped in a hotel/restaurant for food, which was good.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
We found this trip brilliant!! We were shown how to use the quads before going out in to the Unknown!! However, once we were out in the dessert we found that we were restricted in what we could do, as in, we were following like sheep! It would of been nice to have had some "play time", to really have some fun!! This is very much an Adult Trip!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We had a great day out in Cairo. Our tour guide Abraham, was really knowledgable and a laugh to be with. We did find this trip too long and drawn out once we had finished "sight seeing." We was picked up from our hotel at 6am, and did not arrive back till 12.30am! We were catching a 10pm flight, only to find that we could of caught an earlier one, if they hadnt stopped off at a market which was packing up!! We definately would do this trip again, if we could catch a flight after the Pyramids.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We booked 2 trips via Mohamed - one for Cairo & one for the Dolphin Show - Both days were brilliant. We were picked up exactly when they said they would be there and our guide (Ibrahim) in Cairo was great. We ended the Cairo day in the market - now you have to see that to believe it - it was fantastic and the large tour operators don't even take you there. We had our own tour guide for the whole day when you saw bus loads going round with one for them all - some others were even listening to our guide as they couldn't hear theirs. The day at the dolphins, Mohamed even brought his wife (beautiful girl) to meet us which we thought was fantastic. We would have NO HESITATION in recommending this Company for your holiday trips. Thanks for making our trips on holiday a great success.

Thanks again - Jacqueline, Duncan & Nicola (Dundee, Scotland)

Luxor by Plane from Sharm One Day Trip - Excursion
Our last day in Sharm was spent in Luxor. My youngest daughter was affected by the heat so one of us had to stay with her mainly me however our driver and our guide John was really good about it. My husband and his mum enjoyed the Valley of the Kings and Karnak while I thoroughly enjoyed the temple of Queen Hatshepsut our guide was really good. We were taking on a boat like the trip in Cairo across the Nile to the East Bank for lunch enjoyed the scenery which is amazing at the time we visited Luxor had an extremely important person visiting too their President so the sights and sounds of that was nice to take in. Before we completed our trip back to the Airport we were offered and an extra cost whether we wanted to cruise the nile a bit again or do a horsedrawn carriage around what I would consider the real Luxor and see the actual REAL city and its day to day residents we all chose the horsedrawn carriages. Our daughter who rides horses back here in Scotland got a chance to take the reign and sit up front of the small carriage, she thoroughly enjoyed it as we all did. Our trips with Sharmexcursions.com made our experience in Egypt complete, everyone involved in our excursions including Mohammed were brilliant to us all. Highly recommended. Thanks again Mohammed to you and all the guides, drivers etc that took us on those excursions.

Bedouin Show & Dinner
We booked this trip as a special trip as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and anted to do something different for this, we were taking out into the desert by jeep to the Bedouin camp for Dinner and Tanura show which was both very good and extremely relaxing the only bit that disappointed me in this evening was that we didnt get our camel ride into the camp like it said in the excursion description and what really was disappointing because it was our wedding anniversary and the reason we chose this excursion was we did'nt star gaze like it tells you. Our driver and guide for the evening were very good and great company to be in.

Snorkeling Trip Ras Mohamed or Tiran Island
This was a good, nice relaxing trip. We did snorkling at stop No.2 where it was the safest for my daughter for those who can't swim life jackets are given so no reason why non-swimmers should miss seeing under the red sea. We were very lucky our captain blew his horn for Dolphins to appear for us at a certain point on the trip we saw three one swam alongside then went under the boat for people at other side to see it, that in itself is amazing.

Super Safari: ( St.Catherine & Canyon )
St Katherine's Monestary was OK the crowds are very off putting though its hard to see everything due to this you need your shoulders covered here ladies and below knee trousers men, this excursion is quite hard on anyone who can't walk a distance for medical reasons as one poor lady found out however as you have to walk about half mile to the monestary from the car park however if you mention your disability to the guide at the beginning you may get a local taxi up to the monestary entrance for an extra fee. The burning bush was the best bit for me as was the Moses' mountain.
Coloured Canyon what can we say but BRILLIANT be aware though if you choose to go into the canyon with the guides who are excellant not to wear white or light coloured trousers as I did as there is a bit of sliding on one' bottom in parts and small jumps through the canyon it reminded me of dry Canyoning. I would'nt recommend anyone with a medical condition to attempt to go down or any one that was big made as there are a couple of small squeezy places toget through however those with a medical condition can stay at the top and admire the magnificant view as my youngest daughter did. The jeep Safari going through the desert to the place where they stop at top of the canyon is absolutly brilliant the jeeps race one another over bumps etc anyone thats done a jeep safari before this is a good one. Note Once down in the canyon you cant turn around and go back its a round walk, for those who do do it it is a welcome refreshing walk from the heat and direct sun the whole canyon once in it is just breathtaking. Highly recommended.

Dolphin Show
We got picked up from our hotel St GEORGE'S Three Corner's taken by Taxi a short distance along the street to the Dolphin show met there by a guide who gave us our tickets and told us our taxi would be waiting for us to take us back to our hotel be aware though if you want either to swim or get your photographs taken with the Dolphins after the show the taxi won't wait for you and you have to find your own way back as we found out luckily we were just along the street from our hotel. The show itself was really enjoyable. As we love nature we were however a bit disappointed at the size of the pool for three Dolphins. My daughter who is special needs thoroughly enjoyed watching the dolphins and to have her photo taken with them afterwards will always be a keepsake for her. The cost of the photo approx. when we were there was 14.00

Abu Galum & Blue Hole Safari from Sharm
We went here on Sat 11 Oct 2008 This was a really good excursion for those who want to know about the lives of the Bedouin, we travelled through the desert as part of the trip stopping for a second at the simple graves of the Bedouin learning all about them. We stopped for some Bedouin tea which as a non-tea drinker I found very nice and very refreshing. We got a camel ride in Dahab just before lunch which was included which was an experience but our camels were very well behaved no spitting etc that every one tells you they do they were brilliant as was our guide on this trip, we didnt snorkle but the people who did enjoyed themselves. We stopped after lunch at a beach where people who weren't comfortable at the reef could go in for a swim. It was windy here as this is where you will see windsurfers practicing be aware when we were there we did unfortunately get hassled by a Bedouin woman with her kids as usually gave me a braclet told her no money gave it to me as a gift then as I was walking back to jeep she ran like Seb Coe across the sand after me for money if you don't really want to buy just hand it back as I DID, this was the only annoying part of trip also her kids and herself stand close to you while you are changing etc just be aware of your belongings.

Sharm Desert Horse Ride
Mum and dad booked with you so that I could experience every horseriders dream to be able to ride an Arabian in the desert. As a horserider of 12 yrs I thoroughly enjoyed my whole trip out at the stables my horse 'CLAY' was gorgous he was really good I enjoyed cantering and trotting in the desert with him and with the sun setting. It was Dad and mum and Gran's first time on horse back they did not too bad mum's horse 'Mickey' was really good with her she did a trot for the first time on him. The whole thing was an amazing experience which I would recommend to anyone as the horses are so gentle with first timers.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
We went to Cairo by plane while we were in Sharm from 2 Oct- 16Oct 2008. We had an early start but it is worth it. The whole day went very smoothly, our egyptian guide in Cairo who met us off the plane was excellant, he took some really good/funny photos of the four of us at the Pyramids they turned out really good. The trip really gave us a real insight to Cairo life from the moment we were picked up from the airport to the time we were seen back through check in. We saw the sun set behind the pyramids with the Syphinx in the foreground and camels in the background it was magical. We just sat there for about half hour or so watching this and thoroughly enjoyed it. We enjoyed seeing the REAL Cairo as well not just the touristy parts that is what going to see a country on holiday is all about to see the real people. Ahmed was a really good guide. Thankyou for giving us an excellant trip.

Glass Boat
This was a re-arranged trip - we should have gone to Ras Mohammed but as we are not confident swimmers and following a jellyfish sting, we decided to go on the glass boat. This was simply stunning - to see all different species of fish only previously seen in aquarium's was incredible. Again, well worth the money.

Excursion to St.Catherine & Dahab from Sharm
This is another trip not to be missed and well worth the money. The included lunch was very nice but, again, drinks are not included. It is certainly an eye-opener travelling to the Monastery - although it is appreciated that the way of life is one the locals know of no other, it made us feel quite humble seeing how they live - no just popping to Tesco for a pint of milk! Also to see a Camel Train on the way home was like the icing on the cake - wonder where they had been?

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
There is very little I can add to other reviews for this trip. Like everyone I was dubious about handing over the cash for 3 trips booked. However, we were picked up at the Hotel at the time stated and everything went smoothly. This trip is very tiring but I would not have missed it for the world. Everyone should do it. Our guide, Lily, is simply the best. She should have finished the tour at 6.00 p.m. but as our flight home was not until 10.30 p.m. she stayed with us and even took us to a local place which I can only describe as like a town square not usually frequented by visitors. We had a true egyptian meal and was very cheap. Lily even made it possible for us to go inside the Mosque (one side for the men and the other for the women). The only real downside to this trip was the included lunch. The food was not very nice and none of our party could eat it. It was also disappointing that after ordering our drinks we were told they were not included. These were very expensive. However, make this trip the top of your list - well worth the money.

Quad Biking in Sharm Desert
We actually did the two hour Quad Biking Trip. This was well worth the money. It was amazing to be driving along the desert on a quad bike and great fun. A tour guide takes you around and you also visit a few locals for a cold drink. Take plenty of sun block as you can burn very quickly in the desert.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Our rep met us in our hotel at our agreed time and we paid in advance which we were understandably nervous about. However this was well worth it. The trip was amazing. We had an interesting look around the Egyptian museum and the Pyramids were amazing to see. I definately recommend paying the 25 Egyptian Dollars to enter one of the pyramids...however if you dont like tight spaces you may not like it. Be warned that every toilet you visit will have someone selling toilet paper for a tip so if you get caught short take some change ;-P

Thanks to our tour guide Abdul who was excellent, he was full of knowledge and had a great sense of humour.

cairo is amazing, however the bus journey is long and you end up very tired. The english speaking guide was great, and the sights made the journey worth it.

Cairo and Luxor Tour from Sharm - 2 Days by plane trip
Booked a 2 day excursion to Cairo and Luxor before we left the UK by internet with www.Sharmexcusions.com Definitely worth every penny and much cheaper than booking at the resort when you get there. It was a fantastic experience and not one to be missed when going so far. We were taken to a few shopping outlets by our guides which seemed to be compulsory but did not detract from our experience. The guides were very willing to change the itinerary to suit your requirements. Unfortunately we were not as impressed with our excursion to the Sinai Desert and Bedouin Dinner as we found it was not value for money.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Having booked the excursion via the website and nervously handed over the cash in resort prior to departure I can with doubt say it was money well spent.
Our driver to the airport was waiting for us in our hotel lobby at 4.30am! We easily boarded our flight and on landing took the brave decision to leave the arrivals area were to our delight our guide Lily was on the look out waiting for us. To our amazement we were told this was a private tour and the four of us were fortunate to have the expert company of Lily for the whole day. She knew where to go and more importantly when to go to beat the mass tours (no waiting in a massive queue for lunch for us!). Lily was also more than amenable to change the itinery to suit our requirements - we needed to due to more rest being required as it was so hot!
As a general word of advice you will get the usual Egyptian selling techniques from the places you visit. Just remember you can say no!!!
This trip was a once in a lifetime experience for us and thanks to the quality of service and value of Sharm excursions it was one we won't forget. I can unhesitatingly recommend this as the only way to do excursions in Egypt!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Prior to our arrival to Sharm, I booked 4 trips with Mohamed. I kept in touch with the tour operator on a regular basis, and voiced some of my concerns regarding our trip to Jerusalem. Mohamed, quick as a flash, answered all of my questions, in a honest way. All that he described and promised was delivered. So thank you for a brilliant trip to Cairo, Jerusalem, Petra and Mount Sinai. Next time I return to wonderful Egypt, I shall use your services without the shadow of a doubt. Mohamed and his team, are a credit to Egyptian tourism, efficient, reliable and honest people.

Customer service is excellent, as is the organisation of the tours. Special mention to Ahmed - our daughter loved his camel impressions!!!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Mohamed we are writing to thank you once again for a most enjoyable trip to Cairo on 3rd July 08. Cairo itself and the sights were fantastic but it was you who really made this trip the highlight of our holiday. Your kindness and generosity will be something we will never forget. There were so many surprises throughout the trip starting with the boat trip on the river Nile . This was something we really wanted to do and although it was not initially on your itinerary we booked with yourself anyway and 1st surprise of the day a boat trip on the Nile ! Your knowledge of everything we saw throughout the day was fantastic , we dont know how you can remember so much information! We left the trip really feeling like we had learnt a lot. Your surprise cake in the Papyrus Institute was such a kind gesture, something we will never forget. You made the whole day so personal and you really care for your customers which is something we really value.

Mohamed, we cannot thank you enough for really making our holiday fantastic . for sure we will leave a review on trip advisor to promote you and your company. We have told all our family and friends about our trip and they think it was the most wonderful experience. We hope to return to Egypt again and we will most definitely be in touch with you for more excursions, next time to Luxor . We still have our 50 piaster each souvenir which we will keep along with photographs as our memory.In the meantime we leave you and your family and your company with the most best wishes for the future.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Excellent service with these guys. Our guide Ibrahim was absolutely awesome. Very intelligent and answered any question we put accross to him. Speaks very good English and looks after you the whole day. Would advise to expect a long and hot day but well worth it in the end. The guy i booked excursion with (MOHAMMED) was very helpfull throughout the booking and arrangements as our taxi driver who picked us up from hotel didnt speak a word of English but a quick phone call to Mohammed sorted that out. So thank you Mohammed and of course Ibrahim and our driver who was also a diamond in driving us around cairo.

i made a mistake with first review this is the correct destination . sorry
We booked ciaro by plane one day trip before we left scotland online for 30/06/2008 ,but my husband and son took ill so we had to cancel at last minute but we arranged another date with the company out in sharm and they were so good and helpful . we finaly did the trip a week later and it was worth every penny and more . we were met in ciaro by our guide mohamad who I would like to thank for a wonderful day and we are now learning the names of the kings for the next time !! we also had a boat ride on the nile which was unreal I never thought I would be on the nile or sitting having lunch on it . the pyramids were amazing much more than I thought they would be and the sphinx wow .
We went to the papyrus shop and the pictures are amazing I would definitely recommend you buy some we did and had them framed back home and they remind me of my holiday every time I look at them worth every penny . I would highly recommend booking all trips and transfers with this company as they are the most helpful and there prices unbeatable and standards very high .
You wont have any worries if you book with sharm excursions they are excellent .

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
I reserved this excursion 2 weeks before and was a little nervous about reserving 3 excursions online. However reprsentatives turned up on time. Cairo is amazing you can not go to egypt without seing the pyramids. i recommend saving to fly instead as the journey is very long.

Hi

Excellent trip and service. Friendly, helpful and genuine organiser and willing to tailor to your needs. If you have been to a papyrus / perfume factory...would suggest you ask them to skip it so you can spend more time at the pyramids / museum etc. Would also recommend paying that little bit extra at the end and taking a felucia trip on the nile as its a nice relaxing end to a tiring and hot but enjoyable and eye opening day.

Enjoy

Snorkeling Trip Ras Mohamed or Tiran Island
Lovely day out. All soft drinks & lunch were included, which was brilliant. The snorkelling was completely beautiful - we didnt want to get out ! we stopped off at 3 different locations, and went in the sea for various amounts of time. Just be careful of the sun/heat when out at sea!

1001 Night Show
Loved it !
The actual light show, I would give a miss, but the market place within this area, the food, and the entertainment (belly dancing/acrobatics/fire dancing etc)were fabulous - so good, we went back a 2nd time, and stayed until it closed.

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Fabulous trip. Be prepared for an early start! and a lot of walking! really enjoyed it, we got to cram in a spot of shopping in Cairo as well as the pyramids, sphinx, museum & paparys museum. Hint 1) do not get on the camels/horses at the back of the pyramids, as they took us behind a sand dune & split us up until we gave them english money. (which we finally got back after 8 women causing a scene!) and 2) dont buy the paparys in Cairo .. you will find much much cheaper in your local towns/markets, especially if you haggle.
Although, unforseeably, there was an accident in Cairo which caused traffic, and ultimately caused us to miss our flight back to Sharm. Mohammed & the airport staff were fantastic, & luckily, got us on the next flight back.

Cairo Tour by Bus from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Cairo is a MUST, you can't go all the way to Egypt with seeing the Pyramids. Going by bus is a cheap way of experiencing Cairo, although personally I would recomend flying there. It's a gruelling 6 hour bus transfer each way on a crowded hot bus. You do get to see all the main attractions as well as having lunch on the Nile, visiting a perfume shop and also an opportunity to buy some Papyrus Paper. I personally would spend the extra money and get a plane but if you're on a limited budget its still worth doing. Sharm Excursions are the cheapest company we found and some people were paying double on the same trip.

Private Tour to Cairo by Plane from Sharm - 1 Day Trip
Hi Mohammed,

Just wanted to thank you for arranging such a pleasant trip to Cairo last week. Everything was so fantastically arranged and the personal service we received from your local guide, staff and drivers was second-to-none. We're hoping to come back to Egypt next year and will certainly be sure to utilise your services for our excursions again.

Thanks once again, you made our holiday magical.

Merry Christmas

Mohamed,
We went to Cairo last Friday with your company.
We had a lovely day, everything was as promised and extremely well organised. It was real value for money and our guide, Ahmed, was a lovely man who knew all about the history of the pyramids and the tour of the Cairo Museum was really interseting.
Thank you for such a good time and I have recommended your company to people staying in our hotel.
We are now back in cold England but next year if we come back to Sharm el Sheik we shall travel with you again.
Regards
Richard
