We really enjoyed the ride with the best guide and best bikes I have ever used. The owner Mr.Khaled is really a respectable honest guy. All the family enjoyed the ride in an absolutely safe experience.

If you want a nice leisurely ride though the desert, then go somewhere else, this is properly fun . You get picked up from your hotel, all you need is to buy a scarf £2 any gift shop. You need some cash to hire goggles, you will need good goggles not sun glasses as they will fall off. You get crash helmet, water and they will look after you. The guide puts on you scarf like the locals ware them, this will help keep dust out. You get a slow test drive, this makes sure ok with controls. My girl friend came on with me. Then you off in a long line 7 metres apart roaring through the desert. Properly fast, do it it’s scary but you will love it, all the way to a Bedouin village and camel ride , nice cup of tea . Hang around for 15 min. Nice rest. Then back on the quads. You go so far into desert and the ground is rough that you can pan round with camera and see nothing. Tip. Bring an action cam as your phone will get filled with dust. I brought a cheap rucksack to put water bottle and camera in. Cost of this 3 hour trip £21 pounds. You cannot have this much fun for less, soo good. Don’t wear good clothes they will wash but you are going to look like you have been rolling in the dust. But you will have a fanatic experience for your life history .

Mustafa approached us on the beach with the offer of this trip and we are SO glad we went. we walked down and met the group at 9:30 on the beach, got kitted out with our headdresses, given a detailed instruction on the quads and off we went!!! what fun!!! rode to a beautiful quiet beach through the desert, then to the Bedouin tent for tea and to "smoke some shisha" (if you like) "ride the camel" (if you like) then back to the beach for about 12. it was fantastic. Ahmed (Bob Marley), our guide, was great. can honestly recommend this trip it was brilliant.

While I was in Hurghada, Egypt on Saturday 17th November 2018 I went on a Sahara jeep safari tour. This tour left from ‘Safari Land’ and was run by an operator called ‘Vesper’. The tour visited a Bedouin camp within the Eastern Sahara desert which contained a ‘Sahara Park’.

Within the camp in the desert there are a number of animals being kept for entertainment. There are desert foxes, flamingos, an ostrich, goats, chickens within small pens that are smelly and too small. The worst thing, however, was a barn they took us into which had small tanks containing snakes, very very malnourished lizards including a bearded dragon I was sure was on the brink of death it was so sickly thin and a sea turtle which was in a basin of water barely bigger than the turtle whereby all it could do was lift it’s head. I have literally cried over the sight of this turtle. It is severe cruelty.

I spoke to the rep about this but he stated they are only the guides and have to visit this place as it is on the agenda. He states he knows this is cruel however the Egyptian people do not have the compassion for animals we do.

I’m not even including the fact that there are about 6 camels that are being whipped and dragged about with large tourists on their backs and being forced up and down to let them on/off constantly.

The quad and jeep safari and learning about the Bedouin camp and entertainers were sufficient without the need for these animals to be kept there in horrific conditions for ‘entertainment’. It ruined it for me and I would urge people not to go and see this severely disturbing site.

when we arrived at the quad bike center we were told we had to buy head scarfs ( it said in the web site they were included) we refused as it was included which they accepted.
when we set off someone took a photo to sell to us later on a cup or calender for 10 to £20.00 uk which we wouldnt do till we saw photo so they werent happy
then we went on a quad bikes we were going to be out for 5 hours but that should be ok drinks are included! wrong it was almost 3 hours before we were given 1 small warm bottle of water and that was it although there was some warm coke with the bbq
the camel rides were at a "bedoin village" it was a very short ride which was fine but they do not seem to care about the welfare of the camels as they were hitting them with chains.
the bbq was just a few plates of food which looked like it was brought from the hotel.
at least on the quads we got some speed up and enjoyed that part
the sunset was just a "hey the suns going down" take some photos
i would recommend the quad biking part but that would be it

We booked this excursion through TUI comprising of a ride in the desert in spider cars (dune buggies), another ride on Quad bikes, a jeep ride across the desert to a Bedouin village followed by a meal, entertainment and star gazing.
The beginning was a bit disorganised as we along with other guests sat around for a good 1/2 hour waiting for our "exclusive" guide not knowing what was going on, where we should be etc. Once our elusive guide arrived, things then moved along with the photographer helping people put on their scarves which are essential. The "spider" cars were OK but it was a bit processional - would have been much more fun if we could have spread out a bit but to be fair there was a bit of a sandstorm going on at the time so I'm sure some would have ended up getting lost. The quad bikes were enormous fun and one of the assistants was extremely helpful to my daughter as he helped her get going (she had never driven one before). Once she was going, she was off like a wild thing and bombing along at 40+ mph. Our guide did his best to keep us in a processional fashion (excessively to be honest) but we did our best to "bend" the rules and have a bit more fun. A lot of photo opportunities along the way (not seen the results of those yet as they are given on DVDs and we don't have a DVD drive with us). The jeep trip across the desert to the Bedouin village would have been more fun if we could have had better seats in the jeep - instead, there were 2 slightly padded benches in the back so everybody was bouncing all over the place which left my wife and son feeling a fair bit queasy so they didn't take part in the camel ride that followed. It was a short ride on the camels but for me this was OK as whilst the ride was good, it at least appeared that the camels were not being overworked. The Bedouin village I doubt was a "real" one as it was a bit spartan. I would say it was more of a mock-up demonstrating some of the aspects of a real one. None the less, it was OK and some of the things the guide told us was interesting. This was then followed by a bumpy ride back for our meal and entertainment. Don't expect anything substantial from this meal - a bit of lukewarm pasta, rice, salad and grilled beef and chicken and the meat portions are a bit on the light side. The entertainment was basically an hour of dancing with guests sat around the stage - this was OK but we're glad it didn't go on too long. You also had the option of having shisha whilst watching this - we didn't bother as it's not our thing. The stargazing was a let down, it was one telescope pointing at the sky which you had to got to look through for about 30 seconds but then again, with no-one explaining what you were looking at, there wasn't a lot of point.
Good points...
Spider cars - good fun, would have been more so without the sandstorm
Quad bikes - fantastic fun if you're prepared to "bend" the rules a little.
Camel ride - short but fun. Definitely an experience if like me you've never been on one before
OK points...
Meal - quite bland but edible but don't worry, you should be back in time at your hotel to make up for it a bit.
Evening entertainment - it was OK but very easy to tune out.
Bedouin village - definitely needs more to make it feel like a "real" village
Guide - would have been better if his English wasn't quite as "broken" and repetitive.
Bad points...
The delay waiting for our guide at the beginning. With no-one else there who knew what was going on, it was frustrating.
Star-gazing - for what it was, they might as well have not bothered.
Desert jeep ride - it was just too uncomfortable. With proper seats, this could have been so much fun but bodies bouncing around on solid bench seats crashing into each other wasn't.
I've seen other reviews complaining about a lack of water on the trip - on our trip this wasn't the case. There was a short break between each activity and each one of us was offered a bottle of water each time. For smokers, this was also a good opportunity to light up and satisfy their cravings.
A few tweaks here and there could make this a much better full day activity. Not bad for the money though. I would be inclined next time to do just the Quad bike trip on it's own for 1/2 the price.
Make sure you dress properly for this (i.e. wear trousers, trainers and a jacket) as it does get cool during the evening in February and when the sand is whipped up, it stings. Essential that you take a scarf (cheap at local shops) to wrap around your face and sunglasses to cover your eyes otherwise you'll choke to death on the sand and dust and not see anything. Remember also to take lunch with you (our hotel provided packed lunches for days such as this as part of the all inclusive).

I am sure a number of companies offer this excursion.
A full 8 hours from start to finish. Cross desert in 4by4 to Bedouin camp for lunch, camel ride, lunch of sandwiches, drive across more desert to Safari Center for Quad bikes (45minutes), Dune Buggy (30 minutes), buffet dinner, show and look at stars with telescope.
A really fun day and very good value.

All ATV tours from different companies are essentially the same in Hurghada.

We picked this company because it is locally owned and operated. It also happens to be quite inexpensive. No one vacationing in Hurghada cares about little money but for the same exact experience, why pay more ?

Our tour guide was nice, the guy riding at the very front leading us was nice too and he took some great pictures for us !

Camel ride is optional and somewhat included ( it's free but need to tip the camel owner or care taker )

After camel ride was an optional desert snake museum for 50 LE per person and a visit to a little shop selling some supposedly handmade items. We didn't buy anything and they were cool about it, no pressure at all, which is the way it should be,

Last stop for tea and some desert story telling was ok too.

It was a much better ride on our way back to the camp, at higher speed and more scenic.

Scarf ( to keep) and Goggle ( to rent ) is $5 each and we did both.

It was a good program and we recommend it. Rather you like riding ATV on a desert is another story. We didn't expect much and we enjoyed it

One extra note, we picked the short tour instead of the sunset tour because we already booked a seemingly much better Sunset tours in Dubai. Sunset tour in Dubai was Awesome.. Highlight of our trip in Dubai..

We were picked up around 14±20, right on time.
In 15 min we were at the quad location. After a test run the group(=+/- 14) we were split up in more experienced an novice riders, I rode in the experienced group. First a desert trip of 30 min to a Bedouin 'town' were we got water en could rest, look at a terrarium, ride a camel. then a view hundred meters on the quad to do some shisha end tea.
Then the ride back to the quad campus, straight through the desert.
This is a great experience especially for this price(round €20) real value for your money, and a professional crew.
