Quad Biking

by quinntripper

I want to go for a quad ride in Sharm on New Year's Day. Looks like there are plenty of companies that are operating on that day, however, the photos all show a single line of quads all in a row following each other. Kind of like the freeway here, except there's more lanes! Are there any small reputable companies (or individuals) that would take a solo female or perhaps I could join a small group? New Year's day is the only day I can go, so I want to book in advance, as well.
Thanks for any help you can offer!

Hello!

If you're looking for a company that can help you plan your activities in Sharm, there is one that I can recommend. Ive worked with them several times before and they're a reliable, no-fuss company without the unpleasant surprises you usually experience with some of the other local ones based in Sinai. Their name is salco travel. Feel free to google them. I also read you want to spend some time around Cairo. I'm sure they can also help you with that; maybe even have you join one of their groups that'll be around Cairo at that time.

Best of luck,
O

Thanks for your response! Do you think it's necessary to book this in advance, especially given that I only have one day for it?

Re: Quad Biking

by sambell99

no they do quad biking everyday of the year and it can be booked as late as the day before. check out their website onetour-egypt.co.uk and send a booking enquiry i think its 15gbp per quad

Travel Tips for Sharm El Sheikh

My favorite & yellow

by pikuu

Beautiful yellow Butterflyfish (Chaetodon lunula), probably the first exotic creature I saw in the Red Sea. And this fish became one of my favorite until the end of my stay. Very friendly, dignifiedly swimming, usually in couples. We made friends ;) and I could slowly approach to it very very close. Real decoration of sea reefs.

Surgeonfish - reefs' pirate

by pikuu

Arabian Surgeonfish (Acanthurus sohal) underwater robber. Known from its furious charcter. I watched it still chasing another creatures, hollowing something on the bottom, checking what's hidden in the reef gaps. Very active and very charming fish. Next success in the Work of Creation.

~ The Arabic Language...Some Useful Phrases ~

by Heavens-Mirror

Although English, French, Spanish and German is widely spoken in Egypt it is still beneficial to learn some of the language. The language in Egypt is Arabic. I have got a couple of books on Egypt which have helped me with the pronunciation of the words... as they can be abit of a mouthful. I have got the Lonely Planet guide to Egypt & also the Eyewitness guide to Egypt. Both books have been fantastic.

Hello= As-salama alaykum

Hello (to respond)= Wa alaykum salam

Goodbye (person leaving)= Ma' al salama

Goodbye (person responding)= Alla salkmak (to a man), Alla ysalmich (to a lady), Alla ysalimkum (to a group of people)

Good morning= Sabah al-kheir

Good afternoon/evening= Masa' al-kheir

Good afternoon/evening (to respond)= Masa' an-nur

Goodnight= Tisbah ala'kheir (to a man), Tisbihin ala-kheir (to a lady)

Pleased to meet you= Fursa sa' ida

Yes= Na'am

No= La

Maybe= Mumkin

Please= Min fadlik (to a man) Min fadlich (to a lady)

Thankyou- Schukran

How are you?= Kef Halak?

And one of my favourite Arabic words is "No Problem" which is "Mish Mushkila"
Everything in Egypt is Mish Mushkila even the language.... Its very easy to learn once you've learnt a few basic words.

What do you need for ...sun, sea and sand

by sachara

For this uncomplicated trip to Sharm al Sheikh you need not much more than a botlle of water, sunscreen, a book, reading glasses.

And of course don't forget your snorkeling gear, not only for your excursions to Ras Mohamed NP, but also for the beach. Swimming suit, T-shirt for swimming or snorkeling in the sun. And in this hot climate I always like to bring long and thin cotton skirts and scarfs for the strolls in town or along the promenade Don't forget to bring an underwatercover for your camera, when you have the intention to go for snorkeling or scubadiving. If not, I saw you can rent an underwater camera at several places.
