What's more natural: "during my entire visit" or '"during my whole visit"?

For example:

I was protected by him during the entire visit.

or

I was protected by him during the whole visit.

    About the same. Ngrams bears this out

    Whatever you actually mean here, the sentences sound somewhat awkward. What kind of protection? From what?

  • Agree with Lambie, that it sounds somewhat awkward. One reason: it could be that "the visit" is more common than "my visit" in English. So, if you swap out "my" with "the" it sounds a little better.

  • Can this count as a duplicate?

As an adjective, both the words "entire and whole" are synonyms and interchangeable. Although the word "entire" is a bit formal, the use of these words in the sentence stated is natural and common.
