I found this tour via a Google search and then found a number of trip advisor reviews also. After a few emails with KTM Egypt I booked myself onto the 3 hour desert trip. KTM Egypt (Ossam) picked me up from my hotel at 7am prompt and took me to the KTM centre. Here I met my instructor and tour guide (Mohammed). After a quick change into the protective gear provided by KTM Egypt including trousers, shirt, protective vest, knee pads, elbow pads, gloves, helmet and goggles Mohammed and I headed out to the test track to assess my ability. Having ridden off-road before, although largely in the UKs finest mud, the instruction given by Mohammed for sand riding was excellent. After a lap following Mohammed I was set off on my own around the test track until comfortable with the bike, a KTM 450EXC, and the surface. Next onto much softer sand for a simialr session. After about 15 minutes and with Mohammed happy I knew what I was doing we were off into the desert.
Once away from the main tracks the scenery in the Sinai is incredible, a very mountainous desert with a few acacia trees make for some great photo opportunities. Mohammed knows the tracks in the area very well and mixes things up with some long straight runs and some more technical trails.
My tour cost around 115 pounds sterling including the hire of the equipment, bike and transfers to and from the venue. I thought this was great value and I would recommend the trip.
