Lovely boat trip
Sandra_H, Mar 2024
Had a nice day trip, Funtime 2 boat kept really clean, very attentive staff & lovely lunch. A little disappointed with the snorkelling time but that was due to the sea being rough on our 2 stops but can’t help the weather! Spent nice time at Orange Bay & finished the day with a quick ride on a banana ride.

Best day of our holiday
Lucy_B, Mar 2024
Best day of our holiday. Moaaz our guide was excellent from start to finish. Pick up from hotel, warmly welcomed when arriving at boat. Boat was stunning, we were a small group and had loads of room to sit or sunbathe. Had 2 stops for snorkelling everything other than a towel was provided. Excellent lunch then on to the island. The whole day was excellent and surpassed any expectations we had. I highly recommend this trip Moaaz and his cousin to everyone who visits Hurghada. We enjoyed the team so much we booked another day trip with them as soon as we got off the boat.

Yiming_W, Feb 2024
Very great trip! Our captain and the rest of the staff did their best to make the whole trip perfect! My wife and I can't swim, but the staff encouraged us to wear life jackets and take part in the guided snorkeling. Orange Bay was great, the blue ocean was stunning and the sun was soothing on the beach. Overall, the whole trip was great in terms of both scenery and service!

Good trip
Ruby_A, Dec 2023
Loved this trip, staff and everyone is really friendly, more than enough food to go around. Went to orange Bay, for 2 hours because it was windy the whole boat decided to do only 1 stop for snorkeling and it was enough. Orange Bay is nice, not much to do there but swim and get drinks which are a bit pricey. Got henna done there ! Bring cash as there is no card machines or arms. Snorkeling was fun and the banana ride lasts about 20 seconds just going round in a circle. Bought pictures from photographer at a reasonable price, but sent to what's app so no actual digital photos. But happy regardless, some beautiful shots we will print out and keep for life.

AnneMarie_H, Nov 2023
Was really good value of money, I would definitely suggest anyone to take this trip. The team are funny and inclusive. They were very understanding of my sister who is petrified of water and took their time with her. The only negative I have is at the end of the trip obviously they wanted tips which is more than OK as it's their living however when we could only give them what we had left the young guy was very rude about it and didn't even want to take it. But overall was an amazing day and would highly recommend

A trip we will definitely remember!
Alekos_Z, Aug 2023
The full trip was just awesome! I strongly recommend this team to visit orange Beach, they are genuinely fun and happy as much as they take care of their customers, the food was good. My only disappointment is the short time we had on the beach. I would definitely jump back on their clean and modern boat for another ride on the same week if it was possible to spend more time on the destination; but I don't think they can for that price. Again, we really enjoyed it. Thanks to that specific smiling team!

Don’t book this Trip with this operator
Chidinma_K, Aug 2023
First of all the Trip to Orange Bay was wonderful. The actual trip can’t have any complaints very awesome people. But I’m giving 1 stars only because of this operator who puts this gig on viator. The driver ripped us off, it ended up in a big discussion with another tour operator who „translated English“ and had nothing to do with our trip at the port of departure and was giving us dumb excuses. It says additional 5€ tax (per person) and additional pick up fee of 5€ if you are being picked from Makadi Bay. First of all pick up fee shouldn’t be per person because if you are 1 or 5 persons it’s the same drive but that’s fine it was communicated 20€ to be paid in total we agreed. We don’t come with Euros and it’s painful to them because they want to collect Euros to get a good exchange rate at the black market. We needed to pay in Egyptian Pounds because we don’t come from Europe. 20€ is around 650/670 pounds. He did not want to let us go until we pay 800 pounds. This is ridiculous. Just because you check our passport numbers and nationality doesn’t mean that that’s where we live, work and come from but that’s how they rate you. If I still had time trust me I would have gone to the police. Don’t book with those rip offs it’s not right what they do
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thanks for your booking with Egyptous. Nice to hear that you enjoyed the trip with us. About the exchange rate this is our market rules and it is not by our hands. Wish to see you again.
Fantastic trip! You need to book it!
Andrew_W, Jun 2023
Thank you for an amazing day we loved it from start to finish. Pick up from hotel about 8ish then took to the marina. The boat and all the crew were so friendly and welcoming especially Prada who made the day. The boat stopped twice to snorkel brilliant experience felt very safe, then lunch on the boat which was plentiful and yummy, then onto Orange island which amazing. Oh nearly forgot you can also go on the banana boat/couch for a quick spin round the ocean. All in all an amazing day for great price with great people, best trip making memories for the last few days of our holiday. Thank you 😊 Remember if you want a drink on Orange island you will need to take cash no cards excepted.

Snorkeling was wonderful 👍 and orange bay was truly gorgeous. Only thing you need to know is on Orange island, they do not accept credit card to pay your food and beverage.

Highlight of the holiday!
Charlotte_B, Jun 2023
This excursion was a great day out and a real highlight of our holiday. We were given weather updates via Whatsapp and we were picked up from our hotel with pick-up time confirmed the day before. We enjoyed 2 snorkelling stops, Lunch on the boat, a stop at Orange Bay and water sports on the way home. We have absolutely no complaints at all. The crew were so friendly and helpful. - Heads up there is a photographer on board for photos/videos of your trip so make sure you take cash if you want to order these.

warm heart staff
ruoyao_r, Jan 2023
It's an amazing and unforgetable experience. Everyone at the boat is so nice and warm heart. I forgot to take my towel and feel so cold after diving. the photogragher of their team give me his towel and hot water to warm me. BTW, every picture he took for us is so good, especially the photoes under the water!
