We booked this excursion through an agent at amwaj hotel soma bay and soon realized it to be a very bad choice.

This trip was one of the best I did in hurghada. To see how people live in the desert and to feel the desert with all senses was a great experience

We had the chance to drive quad bikes and a spider car through the Eastern Desert which was great fun. Camel and horse riding was also included. We had a Bedouin meal in the desert camp and were able to experience the shisha pipe! Could not honestly recommend the Shisha!!

This desert trip had it all, a jeep safari, camel rides, horseriding, dune buggy's, tea at a fascinating Bedouin village, demonstartions of bedouin arts, crafts and cooking, a delicious bbq dinner, a folklore show and stargazing through giant telescopes. A great value desert adventure.

Trips into the deserts are very interesting, you can see real life of Bedouins, how they cook, how they get a water, how they cook,... Plus you can try to ride a camel
