The hotel was lovely, sometimes had to wait a long time to be served drinks at the bars. Buffet food had a large variety and could always find something to eat - even though we are very fussy! Most of the trips were amazing and would highly recommend trying new things to make the most of your time there!

Finally some star gazing, traditional dancing and... More

Hour quadbike ride to the desert vilage, where you can ride camel, drink tea and then another hour ride back to the base camp. Recommend to take your own scarf so you can cover your head and face from the dust - and long sleaves both for shirt and trousers, because the sun when you´re sitting still on bike is... More

For £25 English pounds the amount you got for your money was extraordinary. Anyone looking to go to Egypt this is a must: quads, dirt buggies, camel ridding, horse and donkey riding, food and also a visit to see snakes is included. Amazing day but ensure you were suitable clothing as it is very hot and the quads will burn... More

Since this was my first trip to any desert I can not compare it to any other but overall I was not very satisfied. We drove quads to the beduine willage where we could see how people live in desert. Tried some tea... I advise you if you want to see the desert by a quad, bring ski glases, not... More

Great view, amazing and different! It's such a different view! From the Red Sea to the Nile River, there is about nothing but desert, and life grows extraordinarily when you reach water!
