Amazing soft sand

If you ever get to go to the Sahara Desert you must take a ride on a camel. Take a small container with a lid or buy a cored sand ornament made by one of the locals.

Really great to experience the Sahara Dessert. The heat, the fine dessert sand and the wide views. Not to keen on returning any time soon, since the terorristic acts in Northern Africa the past months.

It was amazing to ride quads and camels and see the beduins in their natural environment, adrenaline was high and the food served was amazing. It was a great adventure.

Road into the desert for about an hour in single file lines, stopped for traditional Egyptian tea then went on to echo mountains where we all shouted our names to hear them being 'Shouted back'.

Not sure if I'm reviewing the correct one as I thought it was called 'Ultimate Desert' but the day trip we attended was brilliant. We booked through Thomson at our hotel Premier Le Reve, and embarked on a day filled with so much! When we arrived we were sat down and given a complimentary drink and bottles of water to... More

Don't forget to be dressed in white if you go during the summer. It is a good trip especially if you have a safari too.

Absolutely incredible. Out in the desert for 10 Hours and absolutely worth every penny. The staff were amazing, the quad bikes were fun and even got to see a real mirage.
