Hi Mahmoud. Lovely to meet you when we were in Shartm. Had a great holiday and the others really enjoyed the trip on the horses and quads, unfortunately the horses were too big for my wee girl and she was too scared to go on. Maybe next time. Thanks again. Lynn

I booked airport transfer, Quad biking and Buggies with Sharm Vacation and can confirm the service I received in Sharm was one of the best ever.
Mamhoud was excellent, always on time and providing excellent communication when we were in Sharm. I would definatley recommend their services if anyone is looking for first class professional services.

We booked all 5 of our trips through Mahmoud & his team and can’t praise them highly enough.
I also booked a taxi through them before we left Britain and there it was waiting on our first morning,very reliable.
We done the ultimate desert trip, Mt.Sinai/ St Catherines monestry (which we gave less than 12 hours notice to do with no probs) Aqua park, Tiran Island & Ras Mohammed where the snorkelling was out of this world!
Overall,we found Mahmoud & his team to be very reliable ,friendly,professional,accomodating & most importantly not into ripping us tourists off on trip prices!!
Thanks so so much guys for making our holiday.you’ll be seeing us again!!

Sahrm Vacations provided my family with our airport transfers. Mahmoud promised to be waiting at the airport for us with a name board so we could identify him. True to plan, there he was as soon as we walked out the airport. He took us straight to a waiting vechile and we were at our hotel in no time without the usual waiting about for other passengers. We also saved £80 as First Choice wanted £100 for transfers for 4 of us so I would deffinetly reccomend Sharm to anyone. We did not book any trips due to recent surgery but we met plenty of people who have used Sharm while we were there and all of them stated what good service they recieved.

Turkey:
Thankyou Mamood for collecting us from the airport and returning us on departure day. You were aware we were travelling with young children and you put our minds to rest very quickly, you stood by your promise to be there on time and you always were.
The diving trip we booked with you was great value for money and also a amazing trip.
THANKYOU AGAIN and when we return to eygpt we will be intouch x

Yngvi:

Once in Sharm el Sheik, we contacted Sharm Vacations as well as a couple of other agencies that were also highly recommended on TripAdvisor.com about a daytrip to Petra, preferably the following day. Sharm Vacations not only offered the lowest price, but also arranged the trip in only a matter of hours.
My wife and I were both very happy with the trip. This was a long day —picked up at the hotel at 2:30am and returning 11pm— but worth every minute. Everything went according to schedule, the buses and boat were top-notch, and the guide in Jordan excellent! Of course, as we knew beforehand, only a few hours onsite is not nearly enough time to experience all the wonders of Petra, but the effective guiding helped us get the most out of the time we had there. Thanks for a great trip!

Just got back today from a fabulous 2 weeks in Sharm, the highlight of which was a private snorkelling trip by speedboat ( I even got to drive the boat ) picked up from our hotel, 10 mins to the boat, a boat driver, a guide and a photographer who captured it all, was great snorkelling in a smaller group,…

Donna and I would like to Thank Mo for a fantastic Service! I cannot recommend this guy enough, we booked 3 trips with Mo Scuba Diving, Dolphin swims and Quad Biking in the Desert ! (Got a great deal, over £100 cheaper than the Guy across the road who was rude and quite Nasty at times! so beware)
Mo was a true Gentleman, very efficient, fabulous service! Transport arrived when he said …
Alice Lacey :

Hi Mo, the trip was absolutely amazing to Luxor – the best day of the holiday without a douobt and a big huge thank you to Ahmed – he was amazing. We couldn’t recomment him enough for other people wanting to go to Luxor on the day trip. Thanks so much, it really was an eye-opener! We will be back hopefully soon!

“Good trips, great value, reliable owner”
5 of 5 stars

We decided long before our holiday that we wanted to visit Cairo and the pyramids. Having two young children (9 and 5) we decided to go for a private tour and after comparing prices and reading reviews we decided to use Sharm Vacations, whose price for the private tour was considerably less than our holiday compa…ny was asking for a group tour. From the start, Mahmoud was quick and efficient in answering all my communications and he even told me a week before we were due to travel that the flight costs had been reduced so the trip would now cost less. Strangely enough our holiday company still seemed to be charging the same amount. Shortly after we arrived in Sharm I agreed to meet up with Mahmoud to pay for the trip (no advance payments here) and he explained the arrangements and also that if we were ill we would be able to reschedule with no problems. We decided to wait to see how the Cairo trip went before deciding whether or not to book any more trips with Mahmoud and we booked another three. Enough said! As repeat customers he gave us even better prices which and just to prove that these are the exact same trips that others will charge more for, on two occasions we were picked up by representatives of the submarine company/waterpark.
To start with the Cairo trip, it is a long day but well worth it. We should have been picked up at 5am but the bus was 10 minutes late. When we went to the next hotel for the final pick-up we saw why as the driver had to search for the guests. As a result we arrived at the airport at 5.45 for a 6am flight. If booking trips please be at the arranged pick-up point at the arranged time as they do run to a tight schedule. As it was we still had plenty time to make the flight, check-in was quick, although it was the first time I have ever had to fill in the passenger list myself! There were a number of flights leaving at the same time which was a little chaotic but they seemed to get everyone onto the right plane with no mishaps. These are small planes and unfortunately no seats are allocated so we had to rely on the help of the crew and cooperation of fellow passengers to be able to get seats together. As I mentioned these are small planes, but perfectly ok, even if there didn’t seem to be a toilet, and the staff were friendly, serving a biscuit, juice and tea/coffee on the way. An hour later we were in Cairo, out of the airport in no time having been met by our guide, Lily, who was very knowledgeable and also very good with the children, and her driver who must have one of the most difficult jobs in the world negotiating the Cairo traffic. I’ll never complain about the traffic in Paris again! First stop, after seeing the various parts of central Cairo on the way in, was the museum. You could spend a whole day there and still not see everything. Lily showed us round the most interesting exhibits downstairs and explaining the background before leaving us to explore upstairs, where all the mummies are to be found ourselves, guides are not allowed in all rooms, but not before telling us where the most interesting exhibits could be found, such as Tutankhamen’s treasures including the famous mask. After the museum we went on a half-hour boat trip on the Nile which was a fascinating way to see just how big Cairo is and also the contrasts between rich and poor. It was also nice and cool (relatively speaking!) on the boat. We then stopped for lunch at a nice half-open air restaurant right on the bank of the Nile with a good selection of mainly Egyptian style food but plenty “plain” choices for the less adventurous. Next stop was the pyramids, but not before experiencing the city traffic which was an experience in itself and also seeing the many fruit stalls at the side of the road, mainly consisting of horse- or donkey-drawn carts. When we got to the pyramids we went on a horse-drawn carriage ride to the top to get the best view of all 9 (yes there are 9, not just 3) pyramids, as it was too hot for a camel and the same price – if you go with the “official” horse and camel people you pay a fixed amount per person and they’ll stay as long as you want and take pictures for you all with no hassle. We then went to see the Valley Temple and went inside one of the small pyramids, we’re glad we didn’t pay extra to go inside the Great Pyramid as it is a much longer descent and, once inside, the layout is the same. It was bad enough going into the small pyramid and that’s where the heat just about finished me off! After the pyramids it was time to see the Sphynx, which we had already seen from various angles, but now from front-on which is where you get the full view of the Sphynx and the 3 main pyramids. From there it was back to the airport, but not before visiting the papyrus and perfume shops, which were interesting, especially seeing how they make the papyrus, and with absolutely no pressure to buy anything. The airport was an experience in itself. Don’t lose your boarding cards from the outward journey, they are your check-in vouchers for the return flight. Be warned, the terminal they use for these flights only has one gate and there were 5 flights leaving from it at the same time. Chaos. Also, there are no toilets nor refreshments once you are through gate security, although you can take drinks through with you.
The next trip we went on was the submarine boat. This is a must for any non-divers as you get to travel between the corals, surrounded by coloured fish. It’s a bit like a Sea Life centre only it’s the real thing. Don’t worry about being under water because you’re not really, it’s just a boat with windows below deck, you can see the surface from inside the boat. You’re on the boat for just over an hour but it isn’t repetitive at all, each area they visit seems to bring a different variety of fish.
Next we went to the waterpark. The one we went to was Cleo Park, which was not busy at all when we went. It’s a nice park, nicely themed and set out with gardens, but without the thrill rides you get at some waterparks so it depends on what you’re looking for. Some good slides though, a good children’s section and a large wave pool with the waves operating a lot more frequently than in some parks. In short a good day out and a good way to tire out the little ones!
The final trip we went on was the dolphin show. I know that it is unpopular with a lot of people and they have their reasons for that so it was a hard decision whether or not to do it, but I used to enjoy the dolphin shows when I was younger so I thought why not let my children see it. When we finally got in it was a good show and the dolphins certainly seemed happy enough, most of the tricks were playful in nature and there was certainly no sign of any mistreatment. Getting in was a farce though. For some reason they don’t seem to issue tickets in advance, they just wait until you arrive and the guides say how many people they have and they sort it from there. With this being the Muslim equivalent of Christmas at the end of Ramadan, the place had been taken over by Israeli Arabs who had either been given priority or, as seems more likely, had just taken it. While chaos ensued at the entrance we kept seeing Mahmoud running in various directions chasing various people while his assistant kept telling us just to wait until the rush had died down and we could go in. Finally Mahmoud called us to the entrance only for the dolphinarium staff to tell us that there were no seats. Some other members of the group decided to come back another day but it was our last day, so Mahmoud asked if we could get in to stand. Heated discussions ensued in Arabic, I’m not sure what was said but it seemed that one person said it was ok then the man on the gate said it wasn’t. Eventually, thanks to Mahmoud, we were allowed in at the side where there were some plastic seats from where we managed to see most of the show although there wasn’t as much shade as there would have been in the main seating area.
All in all a very good experience with this company, which would have been perfect had it not been for the problems with the dolphin show, which were not Mahmoud’s fault. We would have no hesitation in recommending them and will certainly use them again if we visit Sharm in the future.

Kay Parr

We booked trips with Mo, and i found him to be very polite and helpful at all times. His prices were really reasonable and i just felt comfortable around him. We booked sand buggies (my 14 year son drove me around), boat trip to Tiran Island which was an absolute bargain and a wonderful day was had by all , also stargazing which was brilliant up to a point but it just dragged on which was no fault of Mo just the trip itself
Diane and Stan Bryan: Thank you Mahmoud

The care you took ensuring we had the best holiday and our excursions to Luxor and Tiran Island was amazing.
We are comng back next year and will be booking the Pyramids and another Tiran Island trip.
Thank you Mahmoud, it’s the little personal touches you give that makes Sharm Vacation Excursions so special.

“The travel agency called “Sharm Vacations””

My 4 friends and I wanted to tour Egypt and Jordan independently yet we have a very tight schedule. When I searched for means to cross the sea, I was told that only AB Maritime does that and the ferry trip including the waiting period can use up a whole day. That being the case, we have to stay overnight in Aqaba and tour Petra on the second day.
I found an alternative: we joined SHARM VACATIONS’ Petra by Boat Overday trip because we wanted to get from Egypt to Jordan by ferry and tour Petra all in 1 day. The tour brings the participants into Jordan and back to Egypt in 1 day, but we requested not to go back to Egypt as we intended to tour other parts of Jordan in the succeeding days. That being the case, our border crossing will be different from the other travelers. I did not expect the whole border and visa processing to go very quickly and smoothly, but thanks to the arrangement of the travel agency, everything went very well.
Thanks also to Mahmoud, the manager, who is very accommodating to all our requests. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic service and great trips”
person found this review helpful
We stayed in sharm for 2 weeks and during that time mo was on call for us at all times. We used his service to get to and from naama bay from our hotel as well as doing several trips with him. We went on the glass bottom boat which was fantastic, the stargazing and camel ride which was one of the most relaxing evenings we had in sharm we also did 2 quad biking trips both of which where great fun.
Can’t wait to return to sharm this year and we will be using mo again for all our trips

“None pushy service from a friendly Company!”
We recently stayed at the Coral Sea Splash Resort. Having had a very pushy encounter with the trip company across the road from the hotel, we were at a loss until another hotel guest gave us the contact details for Mo at Sharm Vacations and I’m so pleased they did!
We contacted Mo and he promptly came to meet us. He was very friendly and polite and we never felt pressurised to book with him. He gave us a great price (much less than First Choice) and because we booked two trips with him he gave us the choice of one of three trips for FREE.
We booked trips on the quad bikes and star-gazing, which are both highly recommended. They were very well organised and we were promptly collected each time.
When staying in Sharm, this is the company to book your trips with for a great friendly reliable service!

“Without Mo, there wouldn’t have been a holiday.”
Mo of Sharm Vacations was a total professional. He came to our hotel, explained everything to us very clearly and bent over backwards to make sure we were happy all the time. He really was great. We booked all of our trips and excursions with him and everything he stated to us was true. Sometimes even better than he described. We went quad biking in the desert, scuba diving at Tiran Island, Swimming with dolphins (absolutely amazing!). We went on a day trip to see the pyramids by bus, and we also went on a two day excursion to Jerusalem in Isreal and Petra in Jordan. Petra was really awe inspiring!
All of the excursions were affordable, but were really first class! Without Mo, There wouldn’t have been a holiday. Thanks Mo. We’ll be back!

“Cairo by air, highly recommended trip and provider, great experience.”
My family and I had a great trip to Cairo with Sharm Vacation. We travelled in August, I sent Mahmoud a text from Sharm and we confirmed all the arrangements. We were collected at our hotel at 5am and taken to the airport. On arrival in Cairo we were met by our fantastic guide Lily (an Egyptologist). The first stop was a guided tour of the Egyptian museum, which was amazing, only downside was we could have spent longer there. Then it was off to meet the boat for a Nile cruise (an additional £10 per adult and £5 for 9&10 year old). The boat took us to a buffet restaurant on the Nile, food was included, drinks extra. After lunch it was straight to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, another amazing experience. All in all a fantastic trip which was much better value than the one available through First Choice/Thompson. We will definitely be back to Sharm and will book more excursions with Sharm Vacation.

“A Great Excursion Provider :)”
Myself and my partner after much research online before heading out for our holiday in Sharm el Sheikh, decided to book with Sharm Vacations and we are both glad that we did. Mahmood is a genuine, decent guy, who will go out his way to ensure everything is in order for you, when organsing and arranging your trips. He also will arrange, if required for transfers at no extra cost, to and from the airport which also helps, although bless him, our flight was a over half an hour late when we arrived but he was still standing waiting patiently for us outside. I would also add that whilst we were there, like most people, we got upset stomachs and Mahmood was very helpful in rearranging one of our trips, so we didnt miss out. As I have said he will go out his way, to help you out, if you contact him. I do believe also, that we saved money in booking these trips in advance online, as well as booking them through Sharm Vacations. We know others who paid more than us, on each of the trips.
Here is a little information on the trips, we booked through them –
Luxor by Plane – personally this was my favourite trip, I really loved this day soo much (soo much, I nearly passed out but that was to do with the heat, it was about 46c). We got to see the Valley of the Kings, which was amazing. Ive always wanted to see the Valley of the Kings and wasnt disappointed at all, well, except for not being allowed to take any photos. Tip, if you are interested, do pay extra to see the Tomb of Tutankamun, as you do get to see the Mummy of the young man himself… quite amazing seeing such a huge part of Egyptian history. On this trip you will also get to see The temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Colossi of Memnon and Karnak Temple. You will get free time if you want to go shopping but because it was too hot, we all paid a small amount to take a wee boat trip down the Nile, which was most needed, as it as the hottest part of the day at this point. Another tip is make sure you have lots of small change, you will need it for tipping, for using toilets, for guides speaking to you, even if you dont ask for information. You will even get the locals who will stand with you for a photo without you asking but they do it all for a tip, it is a poor country, so do bear this in mind. Admittedly it does become a little annoying but its all part of the experience. A fabulous day, loved every moment and would highly recommend this trip.
Petra by Boat – This was my partner’s choice and I have to say, I was not disappointed. The Ancient Rock City is just soo beautful, seeing all the tombs, carvings and lovely colours in the rock and then comes…. The Treasury, wow…. it will take your breath away, absolutely stunning!!!
Stargazing in the Desert – This was enjoyable, a lovely wee night. You take a camel ride into the desert, have some food whilst watching belly dancers and the amazing spinning man before going to look at the Moon and Saturn through a telescope as well as having star constellations pointed out. A very enjoyable evening.
Quad Biking in the Desert (by sunset) – Im not one for quad bikes but I rode on the back of one. I love the pictures that we have from this, on the quad bike with the sun setting behind us, its lovely. I want to say lots of great things about this but im rubbish on bikes and as much as I am pleased ive did it, I dont think I will get on a quad bike again in a hurry, haha…. This is one for the boys, or girls who dont mind quad bikes.
You will be well looked after, if you book through Sharm Vacations, Mahmood will look after you, he is the man!!!! 🙂
Hope this review was helpful and that you have a wonderful holiday, as we did.

Stargazing in the Desert – This was enjoyable, a lovely wee night. You take a camel ride into the desert, have some food whilst watching belly dancers and the amazing spinning man before going to look at the Moon and Saturn through a telescope as well as having star constellations pointed out. A very enjoyable evening.
Quad Biking in the Desert (by sunset) – Im not one for quad bikes but I rode on the back of one. I love the pictures that we have from this, on the quad bike with the sun setting behind us, its lovely. I want to say lots of great things about this but im rubbish on bikes and as much as I am pleased ive did it, I dont think I will get on a quad bike again in a hurry, haha…. This is one for the boys, or girls who dont mind quad bikes.
You will be well looked after, if you book through Sharm Vacations, Mahmood will look after you, he is the man!!!! 🙂
Hope this review was helpful and that you have a wonderful holiday, as we did.

Back from cssr had a great time, but best of all was the trips with mo I just wished we’d of had more time to have done more, We did quad biking and mo had arranged for us to do it privately as a family instead of a big group which was 100 times better, and my daughter really liked this as she got to drive on her own,
Then we did dolphin spotting which was fantastic I can not descried how it felt to see my son’s face when he spotted a dolphin, then at one point we had 3 dolphins right next to the boat getting us wet, there’s just no words to describe how fantastic it was,
Then we did soho square which any lady likes shopping lol,
Mo is a dream maker and I would 110% use mo every time, anyone I know going on holiday to egypt I will be telling them to use mo, a+ cheers mo x

“Great Value, A must if you go to Egypt.”
We wanted to go to Valley of the Kings and got fed up of the Travel agents charging you a fortune for trips like this when you arrive at the hotel, We checked Sharm Vacations out as they did the ideal package for 2 Adults and 2 Children (3 and 6) We spoke to Mahmoud via email and he offered us a deal to prebook, we was so confident in the company, I paid the full amount upfront via bank transfer (something I dont normally do) before leaving the UK. I was not mistaken, a quick text to Mahmoud on our arrival to tell him the room number and was picked up on time from our hotel and taken to the airport, a quick 45 minute transfer and the whole day was excellent, well worth the money, the trip was well organized and had a couple of choices to do during the day, (do the trip down the nile approx £10 extra for adults (kids free). what an excellent day thank you Mahmoud

Hi Mo, Just wanted to say thanks for organising all the great trips. So glad I got to see so much of Egypt 🙂
“An unforgettable experience and well worth the money!”
We booked 3 trips Boat trip Star gazing And quad biking All were an unforgettable experience and wouldn’t hesitate to do them again, all the trips were well planned and thought out. Excellent excellent excellent!
“Fantastic!!”
Amazing trips friendly service from staff would recommend 100% to anybody and definately use sharm vacation excursion without a shadow of a doubt when we return. Super holiday!
“Gr8 value 4 money by a genuine Egyptian bloke”
Contacted Mo b4 we left Uk to sort out a Trip to Cairo. Got a reply straight away, didn’t need to pay upfront. Met Mo when we went to Egypt. Sorted all the trips in one meeting. We did Cairo by air, Stargazing, Quad bikes and boat trip to Tiran Island. If I done all these thru First Choice I would have probably needed a loan. Not with Mo. Excellent value for money and paying money to a local hard working man. Dont hesitate to do your trips with this guy coz you wont regret it. You’ll have a friend for life with Mo. Just 1 warning. The Sharm vacation office not far from Coral Sea Splash resort is not his business. You’ll be better off texting him on his mobile and he will arrange to meet you. Thanks Mo for making our holiday a magnificent one. Pls keep in touch.
Kamran F: “Highly Recommended!”
When you get to Sharm El Sheikh, you’ll be approached by various people who will attempt to sell you an excursion or two to supplement your holiday. In fact, the competition seems to be fierce, with a multitude of different prices and extras, although the types of activities are typically similar (camel trekking, day trips to Cairo/Luxor, snorkelling etc). From speaking with numerous people at the resort who booked excursions through a range of different companies the level of service seems to vary somewhat, with some people being quite dissatisfied and others full of praise for the provider they went with.
Given what I’ve said, why should you chose Sharm Vacations above the many others? Here are a few strong reasons:
– No hassle factor – you book before you go, and everything is arranged including free personal transfers to and from the airport
– Competitive prices – his prices seem to lower than most of the other companies offering similar packages, and are therefore value for money
– Flexibility – should you fall ill (which unfortunately is highly likely in this country) you will easily be able to cancel trips or rearrange them without cost
– High Level of Customer Service – the key point here, Mahmoud and his multilingual team are very friendly and helpful and will accompany you on all the transfer and trips, offer expert commentary and impartial advice, and make sure that you never feel disorientated or unsafe.
In summary, I would highly recommend these guys and would certainly use them again should I return to Sharm!
“Very helpful trustworthy guy.”
Booked a few trips with Mo and would recommend to anyone. The kids loved the camel ride and we LOVED the sand buggie. Numerous people around our hotel booked with Mo and all had great trips. Thanks Mo for everything.
“Absolutely Fantastic”
I booked a dolphin swim trip with Mo after chatting with him previously over the internet, the experience of dealing with Mo was absolutely superb, the trip itself was great and my son loved it.
As Mo’s assistant quoted me the wrong price initially, Mo insisted that he put it right and he offered me (after paying the correct price) quad biking for free.
I must say, the quad biking absolutely topped off the whole holiday and put a grin on mine and my sons face throughout the trip.
Whole heartedly recommend Mo, lovely guy who bent over backwards to help and make the experience so, so much better.
“Excellent” I could write a really long review but there is no point because the overall result is the same ….. Mahmound and his team are EXCELLENT, PROFESSIONAL ,ATTENTIVE and I would definitely recommend….

“Sharm Vacations”

Mo provides excellent serivice for all of his trips. So friendly and text or phoned after each one to make sure that everything was ok. We did star gazing, quad bikes and boat trip to Tiran Island. All were fab, much cheaper than First Choice trips and would highly recommend. Watch out though that you do not go to the other company with a similar name as they tried to make out that they were the same company and were very pushy. Luckily I phoned Mo to meet with him and he explained everything. Thanks Mo for the personal touch which made our trip one to remember 🙂
“Excellent Service!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I booked airport transfer, Quad biking and Buggies with Sharm Vacation and can confirm the service I received in Sharm was one of the best ever.
Mamhoud was excellent, always on time and providing excellent communication when we were in Sharm. I would definatley recommend their services if anyone is looking for first class professional services.
“fantastic cant wait to go back!”
me my partner and 2 kids used sharm vacations while in egypt in june we went to the dolphin show excellent value for money the kids went swimming with the dolphins you get 15mins with them in that time they got to hold onto the dolphins back and swim accross the pool and back amazing experience for the kids my partner also went scuba diving he says it was the best thing hes ever done he was completely looked after from start to finish had 3 dives .hes still talking about it now! all in all our experience with sharm vacations was excellent .Mamoud was great he met my partner and organised our trips during our stay one of the kids was ill so was my partner mamoud was so helpful he re scheduled the diving trip and offered any help if we needed it most other places you would of lost ur money and trip but he had no hestation to re schedule free of charge i would deff reccommend sharm vacations they are great value for money and everyone from Mamoud to his drivers were very helpful and friendly great guys will be back next year and looking forward to more great days out with you guys.
“Reliable,trustworthy,professional….recommend highly!!”
We did 5 trips in total…Ras Mohammed by boat,Tiran Island,Mt.Moses climb & St.Cathrines monestry(Sinai),Ultimate desert experience(quads,camel ride & bedouin dinner) & Aquapark.
We found every trip to be personal, professionally organised & thouroughly enjoyable!
Mo & his team worked very hard to please us,they didn’t let us down in any way,always prompt & most importantly made every trip personal to us as there was always small groups involved.
My husband decided to do the Mt.sinai & monestry trip the day before we left,so with less than 12 hours notice Mo had him on the trip…he loved it!
The desert experience was our highlight trip,our kids are 7,9 &14 and they haven’t stopped talking about it! The fish you see at Tiran & Ras Mohammed are amazing I didn’t want to leave!
I also booked a taxi with them days before we left Scotland to go to Naama Bay for a spa treatment & it was there outside our hotel on time & at no cost as we had booked trips with them. All in all we wouldn’t hesitate to book with Sharm Excursions again & can only give them the HIGHEST recommendation!!! Thanks Mo!!!
“AMAZING TRIPS/STAFF EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR HOLIDAY THE BEST EVER!!!!”
We booked with Sharm Vacations Excursions and had the best trips ever!!They staff are very helpful and kind and helped to make our trips as amazing as they were,we booked 3 trips and each one of them was truely amazing and helped make our holiday the trip of a lifetime!!Could never get better anywhere else,just not possible!!My 12 year old son had the time of his life….our holiday was an amazing one anyway but this just topped it off and i for one will be reccommending sharm vacation excursions to everyone i know who is going this yr and next!!The excursions helped make our holiday the best we have ever had to date and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts and will definately be returning ourselves again next year!!
“sharm vacations , fantastic trips good value for money”
we go to egypt 4 times a year ,we always use sharm vacations for our trips all their trips are fantastic well organised and good value for money . mahmoud couldnt be more helpful ,
“Great service provided”
Cairo by coach, even though it was a long journey it was well worth it, we all had an amazing time. The guide we had with us in Cairo was a really nice man answering all questions and so helpful. The second excursion was the glass bottom boat again amazing cannot fault a single thing , everyone involved in both trips made them very enjoyable.
“FANTASTIC”
Thankyou Mamood for collecting us from the airport and returning us on departure day. You were aware we were travelling with young children and you put our minds to rest very quickly, you stood by your promise to be there on time and you always were.
The diving trip we booked with you was great value for money and also a amazing trip.
THANKYOU AGAIN and when we return to eygpt we will be intouch x
“Airport Transfers”
Sahrm Vacations provided my family with our airport transfers. Mahmoud promised to be waiting at the airport for us with a name board so we could identify him. True to plan, there he was as soon as we walked out the airport. He took us straight to a waiting vechile and we were at our hotel in no time without the usual waiting about for other passengers. We also saved £80 as First Choice wanted £100 for transfers for 4 of us so I would deffinetly reccomend Sharm to anyone. We did not book any trips due to recent surgery but we met plenty of people who have used Sharm while we were there and all of them stated what good service they recieved.
“Daytrip from Sharm el Sheikh to Petra”
Once in Sharm el Sheik, we contacted Sharm Vacations as well as a couple of other agencies that were also highly recommended on TripAdvisor.com about a daytrip to Petra, preferably the following day. Sharm Vacations not only offered the lowest price, but also arranged the trip in only a matter of hours.
My wife and I were both very happy with the trip. This was a long day —picked up at the hotel at 2:30am and returning 11pm— but worth every minute. Everything went according to schedule, the buses and boat were top-notch, and the guide in Jordan excellent! Of course, as we knew beforehand, only a few hours onsite is not nearly enough time to experience all the wonders of Petra, but the effective guiding helped us get the most out of the time we had there. Thanks for a great trip!
“Happy enough.”
We used this company for three trips.The first was star gazing and a good night was had by all it seemed and bar a hiccup with regards our collection all ended well when we got on another bus.The second was the glass bottom boat and we got the personal service getting collected and dropped off at hotel so we were impressed with that.The third was the best of all doing the buggies accross desert once again collection was fine and this was a great trip and highly recomended.I would have no hesitation using this company or recommending to others either but if there is one piece of advice i would give its to make sure head counts are done on the bus going out so that it is the same coming back either from driver or guide..
“Excellent service and value”
We used this company for a boat trip to tiran island to do snorkelling, it was fab, I was really nervous of doing it as was my 11 year old son and our first two attempts off the back of the boat ended in panic and I got out, however the guys on the boat were so patient and really helped me over come my fears and both my son and I did it in the end. My husband also loved it so much in the end he did his first ever scuba dive with the help of the team there it was a great day.
We also went on a quad biking afternoon, not my idea, but my husband and son both loved it, my 14 year old daughter and I both found it too hot, so be warned if you do it to cover up well as I got quite sun burnt despite factor 30 sun screen, its so hot out there comaperd to by the hotel pool!!
Overall, very nice company, Mahmoud met us at our hotel and organised everything he was fab. Highly recommend them, half the cost of your holiday company, would defo use him again if we return to egypt.
glhj (“Indebted”)
This is a thank you more than a review. We arrived in Sharm on Saturday April 23rd, to find all banks were shut until Tuesday due to holidays. This is not the norm! We had taken some egyptian money but mostly Sterling as we always change this in egypt and get a better rate. however we were close to running out of money by Monday! I have used Mamhoud and Sharm vacation day excursions a number of times and have always found him both courteous and helpful , So I called in to his shop and asked if he knew where we could change money, as all banks and ATM’s That I knew in Nabq were not working. Without any hesitation he told me to jump in his car, locked up his shop, and drove me to a cash machine which he knew was operational. This was not what I had expected, as I only expected to be told “try one of the banks in Naama bay, they may be open”, as others I had asked had already told me.
In my eyes this goes to prove if he will go out of his way to help a former customer, then I am sure he will do all in his power to help existing ones.
Yet Again Mamhoud
Many Thanks.

“Excellent and well Organised”
I had contaced Mahmoud from UK via email. When arrived in Sharm El Shiekh i rang Mahmoud and he came to our hotel. He was very accommodating and informative. The prices offered where the cheapest and fair.
As regards the excursions – we booked 7 excursions, they were well organised and the driver was always on time. An excellent service provided by Sharm Vacations. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.
I highly recommend Sharm Vacations. The next time we visit Sharm El Shiekh we will definately be using Sharm Vacations.
Once again a big thankyou to Mahmoud.

“Trips and Excursions in Sharm”
Went to Egypt in Mid-December 2010 and used Sharm Vacation Day Excursions for my trips. This small company is run by Mahmoud abetted by Adam. Both of these men are gentlemen and it was a pleasure meeting with them and getting to know them.
There are many tour operators in Sharm and they will all give better prices than those available at the Hotels (I stayed at the Sunrise Gardens). I can only make comments about this company and I am more than willing to recommend them. Since I booked all my trips through them I cannot make any comparative judgements about other companies. My holiday was rather surreal but excellent.
For me one way to judge an organisation is what happens when things go wrong. In this regard Mahoud and Adam were excellent. My first trip was to Petra for which you leave at around 3:30am in the morning. I did this and got to the customs and ferry, went through the customs and then was refused entry on the boat because my name was not on the list. Needless to say I was angry and I was transported back to my hotel. So I arrived back at the hotel at noon (8.5 hours for nothing). I phoned the company and gave them a few choice words. They came and saw me pretty quickly and explained there had been a mess up (not sure whose but it may have been the ferry company, customs, them or a combination). However, they were most apologetic and gave me 50% off plus they picked me up (and dropped me off) from my Hotel to take me to Naqb Bay for the Man Utd v Arsenal soccer match (for free). Later they also gave me another trip for free. For me, their response was excellent and I am sure this was a unique experience and it may not have been their fault (see Petra comments).
As mentioned at the start my whole trip was surreal but that would take a few chapters to write about.
Comments on my trips.
Petra by boat
Enjoyed this trip (went the following day after I had been sent back). The customs officals recognised and all shook my hand (they were rather brusque the previous day) and even when my name was getting checked for the boat the person knew I was the person that had been denied boarding the boat the previous day. Their reactions made me feel that the error may have made at this end rather than the tour company.
Enjoyed the trip.
Tips:
When you get on the coach in Jordan get a seat on the left hand side as there are some specular views which are easier to see from that side.
At lunch ensure you keep track of any extras you order (e.g. beer). The waiter overcharged me 19EP and I pointed this out he quickly gave me 20EP without any questions. I do not mind tipping but I want to do it myself.
On the coach trip back they have a toilet break. If you want to grab someting to eat just go a short way to the right and you will find a small mall where you can buy some hot food (I brought a pizza). However, make sure you have some currency in notes to pay for the food (British, Egyptian, American) as they will not take cash.
Coloured Canyon
Enjoyed this trip. Be aware that there will be a long wait at one section as there is a rock in the canyon and you have to climb through one by one. No big deal, just a bit of a wait.
Horse Riding
I would not recommend this. If you do go tell them you have ridden before or you get some nag. I swopped horses on the way back. But for me the ride was far too short and then you went to a tent where they try to sell you something.
Moses and St Catherine’s
Went in mid-December and would definitely not recommend Moses Mountain at that time of the year. The major problem is that the steps are all covered by ice. Going up was not too bad but coming down was treacherous (I think everyone had at least one slip) plus it was freezing when you got to the top.
No camels available when I went but I cannot understand all the comments about it being an exhausting trip. I am 62 (probably fit for my age) and I found it OK (mind it was very slow slow coming down those icy steps).
St Catherine’s was OK but very crowded when we were there. If you need to use the washroom there you must pay 1EP and be aware it is just a hole in the ground (the gents anyway).
Quad Bike (freebie)
Very enjoyable and you hear echoes in the desert.
One person tipped their quad (I don’t know how) but there were only some minor bruises so everything was OK.
General tip: Always carrying some small change (1-5EP) as you have to pay to use some toilets.
You may be able to buy duty free within 48 hours of your arrival. I was staying near SOHO Square and there was a duty free shop their that allowed this. However, I did not check the prices so how real this is I cannot judge.
Wherever you are you can negotiate a return price with a taxi. You tell them what time you want to return and the will wait for you. From SOHO Square to Nabq bay and Old Sharm was around 110-120EP return (after negotiation).
SOHO Square
Fairly quite as it was off season. The Cinematic film was quite good (around 40-45EP).
The Queen Vic did not show all the soccer games so if you want to see them you mey need to go to Nabq Bay or Old Sharm.
Nabq Bay
From what people said it got lively around midnight and there are a number of nightclubs here. If you walk down to the promenade by the sea and turn left (away from the main area) the bars seem nicer and you can even watch the shows without going in the bars and restaurents.
Old Sharm
This is not as busy as Nabq Bay and they have created an area like a mountain with a few Bedouin tents built into the mountain (quite nice). The prices are probably best here. A friend brought some silver jewellery and they found the best prices here.

“Good value, Friendly and Great Service”
I would like to thank Mahmoud of Sharm Vacation Excursions for organising such a fabulous day for us in Luxor. Sharm Vacation Excursions were very competitively priced and gave further discounts for multiple bookings making them probably one of, if not the lowest cost operator in Sharm, but you can rest assured that this in no way effected the standard of service that we received.
We were picked up at 5am in the morning and taken to the airport and directed to the correct desk for departure. The flight from Sharm to Luxor was around 40 minutes, where we were met by our tour guide who held a placard with LOVE EGYPT clearly written on it. Our tour party totalled 8 people including ourselves, a nice size, as there were enough people to stimulate discussions while small enough to ensure that you could ask all the questions that you wanted. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very interesting. The sights in Luxor took our breath away. We travelled by minibus which gave us a brief opportunity to see how the people of Luxor lived. Our first stop was at to the impressive Memnom colossal statues. Then on to the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, This was followed by a short bus ride to the Valley of the Kings where we visited three tombs. We then returned to the city and to the banks of the Nile where a boat was waiting to ferry us across the river, here you could see this busy waterway in action, large cruise liners docked up, Felucias sailed down the river and the Temple of Luxor could be clearly seen on the embankment. We landed at a restaurant where we took lunch (buffet style) overlooking the Nile. From here we took a drive through the ancient city of Luxor to Carnac Temple, and yet again was awe inspired, by the sights, and further educated whilst being guided around this ancient site.
The planned tour ended here, and with a 2 hour wait before our plane departed for Luxor we were given the opportunity to have free time in Luxor or carry on and visit more sights of our choice at an extra charge of 100 LE. The tour party split into two group’s one group choosing to go to Luxor Temple and the markets, while we chose a boat trip down the Nile to Banana Island, and again we were not disappointed, here we visited a local village, met the local people who were very friendly! We toured the banana plantation, and ended the tour by sitting around a table where we were provided with plates of fresh bananas, oranges, mangos and dates, (no extra charge was made). From here we sailed back to our starting point where the minibus awaited us for our return trip to the airport, and a 35minute flight back to Sharm. All in all a perfect day which we will never forget!
In brief I would definitely recommend Sharm Vacation Excursions, Luxor is a must to visit (breathtaking) and for us Banana Island was the perfect way to relax at the end of a very intense and tiring day and well worth the extra cost. As regular visitors to Sharm we will most definitely use their services again!
Once again Thanks Mahmoud.

“Helpfull, Reliable and outstanding Value.”
We recently went on a Jeep Safari and would like to thank Mamhoud of Sharm Vacation Excursions for organising the trip. The trip was well organised, the tour guide excellent, and was extremely good value for a full days excursion. Which included visits to St Katherine’s monastery, the Coloured Canyon and culminated in Dahab, where we had a meal at a beachfront restaurant overlooking the sea, with some spare time after to shop or just look around?
St Katherine’s Monastery is the oldest working monastery in the world where you can see Moses burning Bush? (We were told that it had been dated back to that time, and if you believe it or not to be the actual bush, it does add interest to the trip) The monastery has lots of interesting history which was well explained by our guide.
The second part of the day included putting our Toyota land cruiser through its paces, as we went across country to the Coloured Canyon, I found the Canyon both beautiful (with layers of coloured rock), and also exhilarating, as we did have to scramble over and under some rough terrain as we crossed through the canyon, to get out of the canyon there was however quite a steep climb which may put some people off. The Guide told us that some canyons were easier, while some were more adventurous? And said that he judged which Canyon to go into dependant on the people in the party? There were 6 of us and ages ranged between mid twenties and mid fifties (me), and for me and my wife he got it spot on If you have any doubts speak to Mamhoud and he will give honest advice.
I was told that some tour operators don’t do the canyon as a certain degree of fitness is required.
If you have any doubts though. You can do either of these two trips independently, and the cost is lower than doing the both together. Both the coloured canyon and the monastery require sensible clothing, as you are going to a religious site, where the dress code has to suit, and then off to the canyon where your clothes may get dirty (well ours did) and sensible walking shoes or trainers are necessary. . This was certainly a trip with a difference which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Altogether a great day out.

“Outstanding service”
Met Mahmoud at our hotel on first day. Had already booked Jerusalem and Petra trip with SV before arrival. Our rep in the hotel warned us off SV as he had never heard of them in his eight years there. But we booked a further three trips with them. Each of the trips was thoroughly enjoyable and extremely well organised. We encountered one problem on the two day trip – the coach which was to pick us up to return to our hotel left without us. After a little panic one or two phone calls to Mahmoud and he sorted it all out for us and we got back safely. He checked that we were safe and told us that he wouldn’t use that company again. His prices were exceptional compared to most that we found and he gave us a further discount. The experiences made a great holiday truly memorable and we would have no hesitation in using him again when we hopefully return to Sharm or in reccommending Mahmoud and his company to others.

“Great service and price”
We booked a trip to Jerusalem with this company in September, they were friendly and professional from the first contact. They gave us a good price for the trip with the option of an English guide in Jerusalem and Bethlehem (A MUST!). A long trip but well worth doing.
A very nice touch Mahmoud provided was to arrange for us to be picked up when we arrived at the airport and transfer us to our hotel free of charge, just because we had booked a trip with them for later in the holiday. Thanks to Adam for picking us up at the airport.
If anyone needs reasuring before using this company please feel free to PM me.

If anyone is looking for ideas for trips, I can highly recommend the “5 in 1” trip we did with Sharm Excursion Mo consisting of quads, camels, a buffet meal with local entertainment, stargazing, followed by quads back. Omg it was a fantastic e ending and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t remember the exact price but I do remember it was extremely good value. X

Just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks. Sure u don’t all need me to tell u how good this place is but I will anyway. Waterpark is excellent, foods lovely, rooms spacious (& only had standard), staff soooo friendly (especially dining room and waterpark boys), beach fab, entertainment and kids club HUGELY improved since 5 stars returned, and to top it all gorgeous weather (49!). Highly recommend the lovely Sharm Vacation Excursion Mo for all ur trips (we booked 4 and all perfect). Hope to return again (if not out priced by first choice!!) x

Becca Hargreaves
I highly recommend Sharm Vacation Excursion Mo, absolutly amazing guy and will do anything for you, to make sure all your trips are perfect, if you need a price list please feel free to message him, ive done many trips with him and they have all been made into memories they were all that great!!

Ainsley Wilson
Just back from here and while i was there I went on 3 excursions, the camel ride, dolphin swim and trip to pyramids all booked with Sharm Vacation Excursion Mo and i have to say the service he offered was 1st class and i would recommend anyone wishing to book anything goes to him before any tour operator. He ensured we got the best deal price wise and went out of his way and more to accommodate us. Mo is one of the nicest guys i have met and not only booked us trips but was at the end of the phone to answer any questions we had about anything nothing is too much trouble for him he made our holiday wishes come true and made sure we had exactly what we wanted it was much more personal than booking with the reps and his office is straight across the road from hotel defo pay him a visit before booking with anyone else!!!

Gaz: Quality
We own an apartment in Sharm and are regular travellers to the resort, and have used Mahmouds services a number of times. We have recommended them to friends and family, all have been impressed with the value and service offered by this company. Most recently my daughter and husband went snorkling and said they were well delighted with the quality and level of service that they recieved. We were in Sharm in January, and Mahmoud of Sharm Vacation Excursions organised a fabulous day for us in Luxor. Sharm Vacation Excursions were very competitively priced and gave further discounts for multiple bookings making them probably one of, if not the lowest cost operator in Sharm, but you can rest assured that this in no way effected the standard of service that we received. Once again Thanks Mahmoud.

ARTUR: Hello Mahmoud

karolina: we never use another this company
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 our guide was very professional and knowledgable. I wouldnt hestitate to use this company again.thank you Sharm Vacation

Anna: lovely stuff

we’ve just come back from Sharm, first time to egypt and made even more fantastic by this company. we had 4 trips with sharm vacation excursion, sunset quad biking, fantastic, especially for teenagers, shouting and listening to echoes in the mountains, beautiful views and informative guides. next we did the intro scuba dive on tiran island boat trip. sharm vacation excursion take you to sinai rose diving and snorkelling centre in naama bay then out on their boats, pick up and all admin went smooth and all the staff were great, the red sea was amazing, again, the guides were fantastic, so friendly, helpful and informative. the reefs are truly beautiful, especially the one with the russian boat wreck, absolutlely stunning! Cairo trip was exhausting but so worth it, smooth pick up and comfotable coach with adequate rest stops and drinks. our sharm vacation excursion rep adam on the coach was a lovely guy, works very hard and the guide in Cairo, wael was brilliant, so educational and so much fun. lunch at hard rock cafe was very good and the cruise on the nile was an experience. we went inside the small pyramid, that was enough in July weather as it is scorching out there, wael helped us get some wonderful pictures and even helped us barter for souvenirs, wael… if you read this sorry we didn’t give u a tip, we ddidn’t realsie u were getting off the bus so soon, but u were fanatstic!! last excursion was snorkelling to ras mohammed, again with sinai rose diving via sharm vacation excursion, staff great again, food great and guided tours of reefs were wonderful, a special thankyou to our snorkel guide on this trip, “tito”, i’ll treausre what he showed us on that trip, even diving to make sure we all saw a manta ray and the last trip over the coral garden was amazing, thanks to his expertise got so close to the beautiful coral and sea life. the food on the boat rips was great, all freshly cooked and very tasty. cannot recommed this company enough.

Mo is a genuine nice guy and we had a wonderful day out with the boys. We got to see dolphins on the way home too. There are so many people trying to sell you day trips, but this one really was a well organized and safe trip. Well done.
Carole. “Scuba Diving”
Excellant value for money and a great day out – we saw dolphins and a large turtle. The men operating the boat were professional and good fun

Durham, United Kingdom
We became facebook friends with Mo from Sharm vacation excursions prior to our sixth trip to Sharm , which was in July. Shortly after our arrival we called into his office, we did not need to introduce ourselves, his welcome was fantastic.
We booked a private speed boat trip to Tiran Island through him, to celebrate my 48th birthday. It’s a day that we shall never forget, a true VIP experience.The driver was a true star and we even had a private photographer accompany us. The feeling we had as we sped past the standard tourist boats was absolutely amazing, we couldn’t resist giving the occasional royal wave, we felt so special.
Since our return home, we have regularly been in contact with him and look forward to seeing him when we return to Sharm in July 2014.
More recently my wife travelled alone to Sharm to help get over her mothers death. I was very apprehensive about her being alone in Sharm , but Mo was there for her. He personally travelled to her hotel to deliver a holiday WiFi unit so that she could keep in touch with us, and I felt as though Mo was her guardian angel while she was there.
We can’t wait to return to Sharm next July and especially look forward to seeing Mo again, he’s more than a tour operator, he’s a true friend. Thanks Mo.

We stayed at the Coral Sea Water world 1112013-15112013 which is directly opposite Mo at Sharm Vacation Excursion.We had been in touch via Facebook because of reccomends before we left and visiting Mo and Ahmed was actually one of our first things we did. These two guys are absolutely fantastic and make you feel like one of their own family as soon as you step foot in the shop.The excursions available are immense and fantastic value for money . we had a great day/evening on the Quads and everything from Ahmed assisting us to buy the all important head scarf’s oh and a handbag for the wife( thank you again Ahmed ) the private transfer to and from the mountain venue was perfect in every way. You cannot visit this part of Sharm without going to see this fantastic man and is staff and booking your excursions. Well done Mo!! We will definitely be seeing you again next year and keep up the good work.Finally we cannot reccomend the services and expertise enough……
Vikkishols “Top guy top customer service!”
Met mo in July, had spoken thro Facebook so felt like I already knew him when I finally did meet him! So welcoming and helpful!! Dolphin trip was fab what amazing creatures! Well organised excursion with no time wasting. Some guests got on the wrong bus which with a quick phone call mo quickly sorted out and they were put on the correct bus. I’m returning soon to sharm and most looking forward to more trips with sharm excursions mo! Can highly recommend! Thanks mo see you soon! A*****

North Shields, United Kingdom: “Fantastic”
Went to sharm vacation excursion in September to book a boat trip for ourselves and friends, what an absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish, we saw the dolphins which was amazing. The guys were so patient with the ones that were nervous and even took my little boy snorkelling and showing him the world beneath the sea. Such a lovely guy, with the biggest smile and goes that extra mile to please. Will definitely be booking trips with him again, went to his shop as a customer and felt we left as friends. Would recommend to everyone.

Nothing is too much trouble for Mo…he will do his very best to insure you have a good trip at good prices…he is fully insured , as I know the reps in hotels will say “do not book with outside tour companies” because of safety …..well booking with Mo couldnt be safer.
The trips are well organised and good value for money…..from pick up at your hotel reception , to your destination , and the return back to your hotel.
Mo is an absolutely genuine person, who does enjoy meeting people and delivering a first class service.
No matter how busy he is , he will always make time to help his friends out, because that’s what you become from the first time you meet him , a friend.
Thanks as always for everything Mo, I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.
