Customer Name: Alan Godden
Date of travel: December 2012
Destination: Red Sea, Sharm El Sheikh
Holiday description: Sharm El Sheikh
I was not particularly seeking a “ value for money “ break – for me it was an opportunity to dive, at a premium time of year, and respecting that I would incur a single person supplement. I appreciate that I could have secured more favorable prices at other times of year.
Yes – absolutely, Sharm was a destination high on my priority list, and I shall be returning at some point in the future
The ground organisation, transfers, hotel check in and general communication was comprehensive – my baggage exceeded 23.5kg but this was not questioned, either at Gatwick or Sharm. The pick up’s were on time, were waiting for me, and all was fine.
Booking with Camel, with all facilities in one location was ideal for me, as all I wished to do was dive. The added benefits of the various restaurants, bars, and pool were a bonus. The night club next door will not suit everyone, with loud music until the early hours, but fortunately I was too tired from diving for this to affect me!
Camel dive were very well organised, and safe. An English speaking guide was allocated to me, and I found Deniz to be very helpful. Some of the instructors/ guides joined us in the bar on New Years eve, and generally were a sociable bunch.
For me, the holiday did exactly what I required, although quite obviously certain aspects will not suit everyone. For me, I shall be returning and will score this 8.
