It was a very good trip on quadbikes in Dahab and also a trip to Mount of Moses. Ahmed is a great guy that can help in everything.
The tours I did were very well planned, Ahmed was very nice and very helpful. I enjoyed every tour, I highly recommend this agency and if i go back to Egypt I would use this agency again
I was very enjoyed my trip to Dahab and especially trips arrangement with Mr. Ahmad official trips and I, personally, will re-trip once again with them next year. I would advise to deal with them
We have a lot of fun with them and spend lovely time, kids enjoyed the outings. We descovered dahab a lot of places I'm dahab, and it was so lovely.
