We did a day trip with a Bedouin guide to the Colored Canyon and I highly recommend it.

The landscape is beautiful and we were lucky because no one else was there... More

We visited the coloured canyon for a few hours trip and found it beautiful and very interesting. We would advise people to wear shoes not sandals as the ground is rough underfoot, also take water and your camera, A little scrambling, rather than climbing, is required so we took a small rucksack to hold all our bits and pieces.

We visited the coloured canyon as part of a trip to the Coloured Canyon and the Blue Hole. We spent a little over 30 minutes there which was perfect as it was a very hot day and the scenery is very spectacular with some great photo opportunities. The guide was very informative regarding the vegetation etc. Recommended for a trip

It is good to see this canyon in the middle of desert and it is also good for take a picture at in the middle of nowehere. However after seeing a lot of charming pictures of this canyon at the internet, you may get a little bit disappoint when you see it with your own eyes. So keep your expectations... More

The colored canyon is brilliant & wonderful, the formation of the rocks & ravines is just stunning, all those who wanting to go will not be dissapointed, the only advice i will give is that when booking, do not let the excursion people trick you into doing, the canyon, blue hole & shopping in dahab, a 3 in 1 package...
