This is the second excursion we booked with King Safari. First, we went on a private tour and this is a scheduled group tour.

We had a really nice group and a perfect day out. Both the canyons require a little bit of scrambling but nothing too hard for me and my girlfriend (we are quite unfit ;-) )

I for one truely fell in love with the Sinai Desert and the Bedouins and am looking forward to my next trip with King Safari.. Thank you Bob and Joseph for taking us under your wings. We would have never had the courage to do these things without your guidance!

Dahab is the best place to chill and relax, but we also wanted to see the desert, Next to Sababa restaurant ( where we hang out) there was this small travel agency King Safari. We got talking to the owner Bob and he totally sold us the trip to hike a canyon!! ;-) ;-) .

We had so much fun! They picked up at our Airbnb in the morning. It was a bumpy ride into the desert but I wouldn't have missed it for the world! A great way to spend the day with friends. Luckily it was not too active if you hear what im saying as we were all bit hungover.

The guide (Bob 2 ;-))) was an absolute superstar! I laughed so hard. And we made some amazing pictures that will for sure look amazing on the wall in my office in the States. I will never forget this trip! Thank you King Safari. We had a trip to remember

We were recommended to King Safari for a day out in the Sinai desert. My Fiance is a Nature photographer and was very much looking forward to visiting this colorful canyon.

I didnt realize we were going to visit 2 canyons, and it was a bit of a climb, specially for the older lady that joined us on this trip but our guide was very helpful. We had la simple lunch with the locals, which was an amazing experience. The women and children showed us their traditional artcrafts, which they sell for a couple of dollars!. My nieces were thrilled with their bracelets!

It was a great experience, and we have wonderful photos to show for it!
Thank you Mr Bob, for taking good care of us!

Did 2 excursions with KinggSafari

Went with my mum and sister to the Coloured Canyon. The start was a bit messy. Our hotel is next to the travel agency but we left with a delay, coz our travel companions that had to be picked up by another hotel were not ready on time. Apparently, this happens a lot, so be warned ;-). The excursion was a bit more physical than expected for my mum, but our guide Mo was an absolute gentleman about it and took her under his wing!

We decided to book a Bedouin Dinner in the Mountains with 10 people and that was just awesome! We parked at a place in the mountains, overseeing the valley of Dahab.. Food existed of Fresh Bedouin bread, BBQ chicken & kofta.. and always nice.No plastic plates. .. plus we could bring our own wine and beer. The perfect last night in Dahab (for now).

This was a whole day trip into the Sinai desert. We were collected by minibus and driven into the desert as far as the rough road would go, then transferred into 4x4s after some Bedouin tea in the desert. These took us to the start of the red canyon, where they left us to walk the canyon which takes approximately one hour. At the end of the canyon we were picked up again and driven to an oasis where we had a very pleasant vegetarian lunch and rest for an hour.
After that we set off walking into the desert to the White canyon. This walk takes approximately 2 hours and in some places required climbing up and down very steep rock faces, or some very rough walking. You have to be very physically fit to do this trip!
But the canyons are so stunningly beautiful, it is totally worth it. The trip ends with s very steep sand slope that you literally "ski" down in your trainers, which is huge fun, once you realise that it's actually possible to do this!
At this point you are picked up again by the 4x4s and then returned back to Dahab via minibus.IT
IT IS A TOTALLY FANTASTIC DAY OUT. We were perhaps fortunate that our fellow travellers, who were German, French and Egyptian were brilliant company. Which certainly added to our enjoyment, but I would really recommend this trip if you are fit. I am retired but quite fit, so you don't have to be young, just nimble and a bit brave! We took s day out from diving to walk the canyons, and we are so glad that we fid

My brother and I looked for a day trip to the White and Colored Canyon, which is a well known site about 50km from Dahab. King Safari Dahab offered this. We were told we would leave the next day at 08:00am and that the group wouldn't consist of more that eight people due to the limited seating in the jeep.

They let us wait for 45 minutes the next morning. Furthermore, they stuffed nine people in the jeep, and as a result it was quite an uncomfortable while being seated for three hours the entire day. When I confronted the guy who sold us the tour with these things he got very angry at us for complaining. I expected an apology, but not this!

Even though the Canyons are worth visiting, I certainly wouldn't recommend this operator. They are rude and don't deliver what they promise. Do yourself a favor and find a different one.

We were in Egypt with my partner primarily for the snorkeling, but it being our first time, we wanted to see and do a lot. I contacted Joseph before our arrival and once in Dahab, he sent a car to pick us up and bring us to his office so we could discuss our plans in person. We ended up booking 3 trips with him - Overnight climb of Mt Sinai, 1 day trip by bus to Cairo, and a tailor made trip on quad bikes to Blue hole and a Wadi.

We were a bit apprehensive about the trip to Cairo on a public bus, however all went well. Joseph stayed in touch via Whatsapp the whole time and our guide in Cairo was very nice.
The Mt. Sinai was my favorite trip but be aware you're going to waste a lot of time at checkpoints without anyone explaining the hold up to you. It's not King Safari's fault and it's something you just have to accept if you're visiting the country. The drivers on this tour are local bedouins who do not answer to the tour companies so you're always playing Russian Roulette when booking this trip through anyone.
The quad bike and Blue hole trip was definitely a laugh, our driver/guide was very funny and accommodating, I wish I remembered his name to praise him.

All in all the drivers were always on time, most of them very cordial and no one was ever rude or dismissive. Being constantly in touch with Joseph on the phone was very reassuring since we did not know what to expect when traveling the country. He helped make this a holiday to remember.

Thank you Joseph and the team!

My friend and I ended up taking three trips with King Safari. This is a really long review as I didn't want to leave anything out. To sum it up, my overall impression is that Joseph tries to run an honest business, which sometimes proves difficult for such a big operation. On the trips we booked with them, every tour was third party so King Safari couldn't do any quality control.

Our first trip was a snorkling trip booked with Ahmed. He sold us the full day tour but the next morning met us to say that there weren't enough people booked for the full day tour. That's understandable so we changed to half day. However, because we didn't have the brochure with us we took his word that the half day was only 50 egyptian pounds less than full day. So we paid and had a lovely day, renting snorkling gear on the boat. When we arrived back to our hotel I checked the brochure and saw that the half day is supposed to be 100 pounds cheaper plus snorkling gear included.

When we stopped by King Safari to ask about it, they informed us that the extra 50 was because lunch was included (different from the brochure). This seemed fair to us. They assured us that a mistake had been made with the snorkling gear, but it was beyond their control as it was the boat staff who asked us to pay for the gear. To appease us they offered a 'really good deal' on two more tours which just about covered the extra we paid for the gear.

Our second tour was a full day tour to the White Canyon and small Colored Canyon. It could have been a great day if we had been prepared. We were told that it was an easy trip (it's actually a bit physically taxing), that a big bottle of water was enough for the two of us, that drinkS would be provided with lunch, and that we would be able to swim in a spring at the oasis. We showed up with our canvas shoes, one small bottle of water each, and our swimsuits packed in our bags. We got started late as the driver made a couple of stops for gas and to return to pick up the young guide who had overslept. The ride through the desert was beautiful and entertaining, but we were rushed through the White Canyon. The guide didn't explain anything and wasn't sensitive to those of us who were struggling to keep up. We ran out of water in the White Canyon, had to buy expensive drinks at lunch except for a complimentary cup of tea, and the 'spring' to swim in was a standing pool of (maybe bath?) water that the residents had filled.

We returned to King Safari once more and they were shocked that our tour returned to Dahab at 2:30 instead of the promised 4:00. They agreed that the guide must have ran us through the canyon, apologized, and said that unfortunately they can't assure that all of the guides handle the groups well. Joseph thanked us for the feedback and said he would talk with the guide and if it happens again he won't do business with him.

To appease us again, Joseph offered us a free trip to the Blue Hole for the next morning. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, so we accepted and told them what time we would like to go. We were assured that we would be picked up at 10am the next morning. Next morning, 10:35am we were able to borrow a phone and call King Safari. The excuse this time was that it was a very busy day, it was so crowded at the Blue Hole, but the driver would be there in 5-10 minutes. By this time we were fed up and also knew we wouldn't have enough time to go snorkling then return to our hotel, shower, eat lunch, and prepare for a 3pm ride to Star Gazing. Joseph asked me to stop by King Safari again and they would try to make it right.

Once again I found myself at King Safari negotiationg the situation (my friend had long since given up speaking with them). They offered to refund what the cost of Blue Hole would have been, although upon the first offer I had to remind Ahmed of the advertised price. The refund seemed fair enough, so I accepted.

Our final trip with them was to Star Gazing, which was lovely though our van left nearly an hour later than expected.

We went on the two day Jerusalem/Petra trip with king safari - the Petra part was excellent and our English guide was very good albeit the day was a bit of a rush as there is so much to cram into one day!
Jerusalem however was not so great - we had paid specifically for an English guide and yet our guide (sub contractor I understand) was, well, an idiot. Very political when trying to tell us "objectively" about Jerusalem and its history, kept swaying into his own religious and political beliefs which grated quite quickly. Our guide also only talked to us on the bus for about 10 minutes whereas the Russians had a guide who took over and talked for an hour at least after that. Basically it was rather like hijacking the Russians trips - they wanted to go to all the souvenir shops and so we did - rather than see the beautiful old town of Jerusalem or spend any time at the wailing wall (we had 10 minutes I kid you not) we spent instead 1 3/4 hours at a gift shop so the russians could stock up on god knows what. Our guide then had to rush us around the city and when I tried to catch up to him to ask him about various things he could be quite aggressive at times and defensive, almost as if he knew that he was giving a second class service.
The good part though was the owner, Josef. Professional throughout with excellent English, when we complained about our guide upon returning to dahab he apologised, listened and dealt with our concerns very well. He took on board all our issues and told us that he would not be using this guide again (who was from a new company previously not used by them apparently)
He also provided a spectacular evening of compensation - taking us out on camels to a Bedouin dinner the following night under the stars - absolutely fantastic! I would recommend people book this trip too as it was brilliant fun - had excellent tea and BBQ food in the mountains and singing and dancing around the campfire.
All in all - although we had some gripes about the Jerusalem part of the trip at first, Josef dealt with everything superbly and I would now rate him first class! Thanks again for the hospitality guys!

We were overwhelmed on our first day in Dahab by the amount of tour companies harassing you in the street to go on their tours - "running the gauntlet" of the main drag every day began to become a bore.

However, the first time we found King Safari they were the one office who held back and let us look at their information boards without pouncing. A good start and we struck up a conversation with the guy who was very helpful and informative without being overbearing. So we booked a trip to the Blue Hole with him at an amazing price and had a fabulous day, even went back again with them a week later. We also booked a trip to the 3 Pools and Small Coloured Canyon and White Canyon with them, then having met the owner Joseph in another of their offices. The friendliness continued with him and all his other staff, drivers and guides. The Canyons trip was amazing - Mansour our guide knew everything we could ever need to know about the place, and was patient (some clambering involved!) and great fun.

We would go back to King Safari on our next trip to Dahab without hesitation. Great value too. Thank you all. Rachel & Joe
