It was an 2 day incredible trip. We visited the white and black desert. At night we had a bonfire watching the stars and having amazing food done on the fire. Loly and Mohamed are amazing guides.

Our hotel security gave our driver a difficult time when departing for Baharyia. Note: the area is officially closed but Khaled and his team run a very safe tour. We immediately felt at home. Khaled’s wife even cooked the most amazing meal when we arrived. Khaled gave us plenty of free time to walk around the mountains and desert. He made sure we knew we could always ask to stop for photos. He is also very knowledgeable. The camp set up was perfect. They spent a lot of time making a full and delicious dinner, followed by plenty of tea. We slept on very comfortable mattresses, with a blanket and an amazing heavy camel blanket (I am now looking for one similar). I mentioned interest in sand boarding so the next day, they were able to spare half an hour. Overall, everyone was very kind and we will definitely return for a longer tour. Be sure to bring cash for payment. Trust the crew, despite ‘official’ closure guidelines. Many companies are running these trips. Highly recommend!

The trip was amazing with several stops at various hot springs followed by the Black Desert and climaxed with the White Desert. The latter was simply STUNNING .. The rock formations were breathtaking .. The tour guide's name was Loly Gamal. He was energetic and made effort to show everything during daylight and even beyond.

The Western Desert tour was an absolute highlight of our trip to Egypt. We were three women travelling together and wanted something completely different from the temples and cities. We did a two day one night tour but I can easily see how people would spend a few more days out in the desert than this as there is so much to see and it's a completely different rhythm of life. As a city girl through and through, this night in the desert was honestly magical - I will remember the night sky and the stars for the rest of my life. The tour is extremely well organised and you will feel very safe and well taken care of. The food was incredible and the guest house in the oasis where you begin and end your trip is so homey and fantastic. You will feel a world away from Cairo and the rest of the world. It is meditative and inspiring. Do this tour with these guys - they really know exactly what they are doing and have so much experience in this unique and stunningly beautiful part of Egypt!

My trip with Western Desert Tours was absolutely amazing! I worked with Khaled to customize exactly what I wanted and my guides, Osama & Mohmoud were the best, both so friendly, knowledgeable and fun! I’m a solo female traveler and I felt very comfortable and safe the entire time. I’ve spent 25 days in Egypt and the western desert is a must if you love nature and want a truly magical experience, it was a highlight of my trip. I spent two nights camping, but I wish I could have stayed forever. I can’t recommend Western Desert Tours enough if you want to experience this amazing place for yourself.
