    AMAZING Red Sea Trip on King Snefro Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, 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!

    Beautiful trip Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, 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.

    Definetly not the last time with King Snefro. Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, 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.

    Fantastic in everyway Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, 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!

    Awesome diving experience in the Red Sea Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, Egypt in May

    After a very warm welcome we started our trip in the Sinai-area. The first dive site was an easy one to get everything working again. After that, the guide lead us to wonderful sites and then as an highlight we dove and penetrated the Thistlegorm wreck

    Awesome Diving, Great Service Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, Egypt in October

    Our dive guide Alaa was extremely experienced and we felt safe throughout the whole trip. Furthermore, I could tell that he chose the best sites and made sure we were able to see what we wanted to see. SS Thistlegorm was an amazing wreck, we were one of the first ships on the wreck and it made a HUGE difference. Great value, we will be back with King Snefro for more of the Red Sea!

    Mar Rojo con intensidad Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, Egypt in January

    Elementos q quisiera mencionar: -quizás la selección de los lugares de inmersiones es mejorable. Algunos puntos eran algo feos como el de los delfines sin delfines o el pecio pequeño (no recuerdo el nombre). Los grandes pecios son memorables!!!. -el tercer día es apresurado para llegar a puerto antes de lo previsto en el horario. -/La opcion de snorkeling en Ras Mohamed sería un buen complemento -las 11 posibles inmersiones son al final 9 como máximo. quizás falta un poco de realismo en el anuncio -quizás estaría bien vino a bordo en botellas pequeñas unipersonales, las grandes están bien como elemento colectivo, pero parece excesivo para uso personal Estas observaciones no son críticas sino un intento de proporcionar algo que les pueda ayudar a mejorar, que creo es lo q pretenden. Mi grado de satisfacción es muy alto! Gracias!

    - SS Thistlegorm - Yolande & Shark Reef - Beacon Rock Briefings about the dive sites by Samuel are perfect. He is a great dive guide. The crew of the Snefro 5 are an award winning team. So helpful, nice, friendly and kind.

    Great diving experience Mini Safari: Ras Mohamed - Thistlegorm, Egypt in April

    This was perfect for my schedule as I only have 4D/3N to dive. Site in Ras Mohammed and the Thistlegorm was stunning. The only down side is on a 3 day trip you do not get to know the crew or dive staff as well as on a week long trip.
