Good morning, me and my family (6 of us) have booked yesterday to go to Hurghada for a week late November and I just wondered if anyone has been before and may have any tips for things to do whilst over there. We’re staying at the Sindbad Aqua Resort so obviously have the waterpark to keep the kids happy (16, 12, 10 and 9) but just wondered about any day trips anyone could recommend if possible. Can’t wait to go, thanks for reading

    Be very careful when your out and about, pickpockets everywhere there mainly kids, but I reccomend the 4x4 and stargazing in the desert,

    Thanks fella, Thomas Cook have made us aware of the pickpockets and given us some decent advice to combat it. The 4x4 trip and stargazing is one I’ve been looking at actually as it looks amazing

    Don't book your tours in the hotel. Book them on getyourguide.
    Don't pay too much for taxi. It's not like turkey the clothes are awful quality so i wouldn't buy anything (LC Wakiki in the Senzo Mall is alright).
    Buy souvenirs for friends etc in the cleopatra bazar.

    Best tour for me is Dolphin house i go there pretty much every year :)

    Anybody been on the Valley of the Kings or Great Pyramids day trips? Look amazing but also look very long days but considering taking my 10 yr old as he’s next topic at school is ancient Egypt so would benefit him hugely

    Go riding on a quad in the dessert.Outside the resort the people want so much to sell something that to almost drag you inside.Bin 2 times in Egypt and 3 times Turkey.Maybe the resort in Egypt are better but some people are very agressive
