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 was a big mistake on my part. The company I went with, located 2 doors down towards the beach from Cacao bar, were not at all good, others may well provide a vastly better trip.

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

If you like adventurous trips-you will definitely enjoy this one. Safari tour- while visiting the Bedouin village-is one of the most interesting activities while in Hurghada (Also ask Medoo at Bon Voyage Tour in Hurghada -the best price for this trip). I recommend you to give it a try.You wont regret this one ;)

You can make a safari tour but do safari as super safari to feel the desert. Otherwise it just like riding a car. Good thing to visit a Bedouin village and see their life.

went for a 3hr quad bike ride out into the desert and worth every penny, 60kph over rough ground is a good bum rush, and when you stop just listen to the silence it hurts your ears
