We found them on TripAdvisor and book with them. Wonderful experience. The drive was fantastic. It was interesting to meet Beduins, it was also possible to see how they bake a bread by Beudin woman, how they find water,..Quads were great, only down side was wind, give us hard time! Short camel ride was also adventure.

We took a safari trip and drove into the middle of the desert in a jeep! The drive was fab! Not for the fain hearted - driving at speed and speeding up a desert dune at 100 km/hr and crashing down on the soft sands! We reached this remote mountainous area where time has stood still. A young girl baking... More

Our trip to the desert required taking 4x4 buses into the middle of nowhere. We got on to ATVs for a quick and fun ride, then camels, then a bit of throwing ourselves down a dune of the softest sand. Loved it

Spent a good 8 hours visiting the Eastern desert. Went to the typical touristy Oasis place in the desert to be charged £4 for a scarf to protect you from the desert sun. Reluctantly I bought one and they put it around my head and transferred me into Laurence of Arabia. I was reluctant to move it all day. You... More

I visited the bedouin village about 40km into the desert, saw the people rode a camel, checked out the watering hole, climbed a mountain and then came back for dancing and stargazing. Absolutely awesome but very hot so keep covered up

Sorry for off topic but I wonder if I could rent quad or 4x4 bigger buggy for whole 7 days stay over in Hurghada - I will have to travel every day to El-Gouona to kite camp.... Anybody know if it is possible?
