    Fantastic in everyway Mini Safari Ras Mohamed-Thistlegorm - 3 Nights, Egypt in April

    The trip was absolutely wonderful! Did some local dive sites, and the grand daddy of them all, the Thistlegorm. The entire crew was friendly, helpful, and super attentive. The food was spectacular as warned, you will gain weight on this trip! ;P Ramy was a great guide and obviously knew the sites and when to dive them. We had the Thistlegorm and the Dunraven to ourselves, just the six of us! I highly recommend these guys! 5 stars all the way around!

    Definetly not the last time with King Snefro. Mini Safari Ras Mohamed-Thistlegorm - 3 Nights, Egypt in November

    We booked a 4 day/ 3 nights trip to Ras Mohammed and the SS Thistlegorm. The trip was supposed to be on King Snefro 5, but there was a problem with the ship, and therefore we got upgraded to there biggest ship King Snefro Love. The Personel was very professionel, the chef Muhammed prepared delicius meals and always with a smile. The diveguide Samuel was always very calm and prepared, the guy that cleaned the rooms (dont remember his name) Cleaned under every dive 4 times a day! No matter have much mess we made it was always shipshape after a dive. The rest of the crew were also smiling and helpfull. The only reason I dont give food and Drinks 5 stars is that im a little picky wen it comes to beer and wine, and Egyptian beer and wine is never gonna be a gourmet experience, so if you want some good stuff, bring it yourself.

    Beautiful trip Mini Safari Ras Mohamed-Thistlegorm - 3 Nights, Egypt in June

    Despite we had a bad weather and we couldn't reach the wreck we were supposed to go for... The diving guide choose very nice alternative locations and we had an amazing trip full of colour and nice dives... Specially, we spotted a hammerhead shark on the reef. The crew of the ship is more than friendly and the food and service is amazing. Hoping to come back and to try to arrive to the famous wreck.

    AMAZING Red Sea Trip on King Snefro Mini Safari Ras Mohamed-Thistlegorm - 3 Nights, Egypt in June

    This trip was absolutely incredible!! The crew were absolutely amazing, and helped where ever they could. Our Dive Master - Samuel, specifically was great!!. From the detail of his briefings, to the attentiveness and knowledge of everything under water. It's unlike any diving we have done. Another highlight was being lucky enough to have a school of about 15 dolphins swim around us. They were playing and having just as much fun as us!
