We had a great trip out in the desert. Started off on quad bikes which was brilliant. Then we were taken on a short camel ride. Some thought it was too short but for me it was long enough. We then did star gazing and fortunately for us it was a beautiful clear night. We then sat and drank Bedouin... More

Overall I enjoyed the trip, the fire dancing was really good, star gazing was great, very interesting and informative but all too short, plenty of good food and tea, the camel ride was over with to quickly and a tip was rudely demanded by the two kids who led the camels, I don't mind tipping just didn't like the demand....

Very good trip, helpful friendly guides. Don't bother with the telescope, just lie back and watch the milky way!

Book with sharm excursions, they were the absolute best. The night was filled with climbing, history, food and dancing. What more could you ask for in the desert. Camel riding, Bedouin tea and fire breathers is something not to be missed!

Incredible experience, camels ride in the 'desert' followed by a nice local meal followed by shisa, ampfire music and dancing and stargazing with powered telescopes. Booked through meeting point Egypt and was very impressed with our astronomer who clearly knew his stuff. Highly recommend, only downside is the Bedouins treat their camels poorly but all in all a great experience.

Quad biking in the desert, what fun and suitable for all ages too. meal provided was lovley and entertainment provided was good. star gazing was a bit of a disappointment as the moon was so bright, we never saw many stars. the return trip back to base was awesome, driving quad bikes at night, what an experience. Try it, you... More

Great trip. Always something going on. The show was good. The food was OK. The telescopes look high tech (i dont know much about telescopes) but i love to hear about stars. The amount of stars were amazing and got some amazing pictures of an amazing sunset. Will go on this trip again with Sinai safari adventures when we return... More
