Our transfer never turned up so we were late joining the group and had to ride the camels with just the 2 of us (with 2 children leading them) so it was a bit of a quiet experience there. Once led to the tents, we were told about how the people lived and it was fascinating. Night fell pretty quickly... More

This is one of the best trips you can take while visiting charming Sharm!! The whole evening was wonderful, camel riding, shows, fab food, star gazing and last but not least making traditional bread with one of the Bedouin tribe!! It packs a lot into a few hours but definitely well worth it!!

Food was not very nice beer was £5 English for a bottle Stargazing was excellent, camel ride was uncomfortable and children were in charge, belly dancer was alright but the dancer at the end of the show was fantastic.

The camps are bedouni rugs and cushions to lounge on. Food is included BBQ and salad which is very nice as its freshly cooked in front of... More

Depending on the weather, and how clear the sky is. Because of 0 light pollution you get to see more that is in the night sky. Best time is if the moon is not in the sky you get to see more of the stars
