... between them. Shortly after this the Rwandan civil war between the Hutus and the Tutsis began and Professor Mann had to escape. At one stage he had to hide behind a bush for a week with only chewed vegetation for nutrition. Eventually he met two American journalists who took him by car to
the airport. On the way they survived a burst of fire, close range, from an AK47 which injured all three of them. All this was before lunch which we had in the Britannia Restaurant. Jo then ...
... shirt and a bandana to put over my face with sunglasses and shoes. Particles from the desert go everywhere, and it can be a real mess. It was very scenic riding around the area. The tour headed for a local village, which was an extended 30 minutes from our base. The village can only be reached via quad bikes, motorcycles and animals. Their is no road leading to ...
... we spent the whole day sun-bathing at Zeytuna beach which is only 15 minutes walk or free shuttle bus from the hotel. It is an amazing beach with soft sand and crystal waters knee deep out for 500 meters or more. Though the temperature is too cold to swim, the walk around the beach area is fantastic.
You could travel around the town by tuk tuk which costs only 5LE/trip. During the night, we could ...
... it is so crowded with tourists and so walked further away from the crowd. It is so much better on the further end of the beach. After 1 hour and 30 minutes of free time on the beach, we returned to our boat for lunch. In the afternoon, we have snorkeling at another two sites. Comparing to the island we just went in Sabah, the red sea water is not as clear as there. Our tour finished at about 3p.m. Overall, we enjoy our day and the trip is a ...
... as the revolution is only about their own local people. They would not hurt anyone not from their country. We also booked our snorkeling tour next day but found out later another travel agent quoted us half of the price we paid. It all depends on your bargain skills. The price could vary from just 7 Euro to 20 Euro. Anyway, always get a few more quotations before making ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Hurghada Plaza
We enjoyed our Christmas and New Year stay at the Hilton Plaza. It's a nice hotel - although its five star rating in some holiday brochures may lead you to think that it is much more luxurious than it is.
We cannot fault this hotel, where all the staff are always smiling and keen to help. The standard rooms are spacious with good bathroom facilities and the view from the balcony over the superb pool, gardens and hotel's own beach was beautiful. We did not opt for the available upgrade offered on arrival as it really wasn't necessary. All of the hotel was always spotlessly clean. We booked very last minute (2 days before!) but there were no hitches whatsoever.
As we paid under £300 for a week B&B at the Hilton it was ideal. However I would have been disappointed if I had paid more.
Fantastic sea view But!
Hilton Plaza has a fantastic sea view for main building rooms. The main restaurant is poor (both variety and quality wise) and small compare with the size of the hotel. The kitchen in general is disappointing (room service & a la carte). The rooms are average (compared with 4 stars standard). The beach is nice but the beach restaurant (cafe) is very poor. Entertainment and recreation facilities are below average. The swimming pool with a nice pool bar is (OK). If you are seeking nice sea view then it is a perfect choice But!
We have just returned from a one week winter break in Hurghada and had a fantastic time.
Firstly, having been to Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada, I would recommend Sharm. We found Hurghada to be very shabby with lots of run/falling down buildings (some of which we did see in Sharm - but to a lesser degree). Hurghada, at the end of the day, is a third world city which will provide you with with an insight into different cultures and experiences, however we personally prefered Sharm as a holiday desitnation.
We had our honeymoon here in September 2004 and i will have nothing bad to say about it at all! We had no expectations at all when we booked the holiday and we were so impressed with the hotel and resort that we went back in March 2005.
I am really fussy - and I could not fault this Hotel. Technically a Hilton 'Resort' it was built in 1997 and has a very airy spacious feel. It was one of those places that when you arrive you feel that you chose well.
Good and not so good
we were there in august and although this is a good hotel it was a bit disappointing. Service was good, but the hotel wasn't too clean. especially the main restaurant was disappointing but that wasn't the staaf's fault. the hotel was filled with arabian guests who had lots of children with them and who were quite annoying. they really messed up the buffet and so. but the staff even admitted the service was better in the winter time because only european and american people visit that time of the year. but luckily there was the small italian restaurant. That made everything good.
A good hotel with very friendly personnel, especialy the catering related workers, who made us feel welcome at all times. Attractive outdoor swimming pool even though not suffciently heated (we were there in the beginning of March). Very pleasant private beach with the coral reef at just a 5-minute boat trip. The rooms are okay with excellent views of the RED SEA and the reefs. Try the room service which was really cheap and efficient. The food is not grand however it was fresh, well cooked and variable. Best asset of the hotel: the personnel - waiters, room attendants, and the very amusing hairdresser and shop asistants. Very good massages too! Worst thing of Hurghada: the wind. We had six days of wind unfortunately - maybe we chose thw wrong time to go there (March).
