I booked this trip from the UK last January and travelled in February. I was amazed at the professional service we received. The company was on time at our hotel, the flights were slick and the guide in Cairo was excellent.
We had an awesome day trip with Sharm Day Tours from Sharm el Sheikh to Cairo. Had a great tour guide who gave us so much information, an air conditioned bus, only 12 of us on the tour so very personal service.
We booked all our 4 tours from Sharm Day Tours. Abu Galoum, Diving, Quad Biking, and Cairo by bus. this was the best holiday i have had so far and thanks to Sharm day tours. each and every tour we had excellent guides.
