It was a long day with two children in the blazing heat of the rocky desert! Our tour guide from Red Sea Waseed was fun, entertaing, friendly and funny! It was all quite rushed, going to see the Bedouin, riding camels, donkeys, horses but once out on the quads and spider buggy it was fun and relaxing. I would have preferred to Go later in the day when it was cooler. Some of our group returned to the hotel because of this! The BBQ was delicious and staff helpful, didn't like seeing a snake feed on a pigeon or a tortoise in a heated glass cage. We were all too tired and dehydrated for the evening show but I'm sure it lived upto expectations.

If you want a day of being blasted by sand then great but this was an awful day out for us. There was lots of hanging around, the food was slop, we were feed early so it was fresh but later it was actually the same food just been sitting around for six hours. The experience in the desert was nothing more than huts with people trying to sell you something. The camel ride lasted less than five minutes, I actually felt that I'd, had a day of my holiday stolen.

Great day out. Only problem was we kept stopping every 2 secs whilst quad biking waiting for people to catch up. Show at the end is fantastic

A lot of just waiting around. Short ride on a camel, even shorter ride on horse and donkey. Felt really sorry for the horses and donkeys that was whipped i circles with one tourist after another. The donkey had a rope around its behind that was to tight and had made big wounds on the back of the legs. The beduin village was a tourist setup with big a big parkinglot. Everything we were rushed through just to stand around and wait some more before next activity. The quad bike ride was the only ok activity. The entertainment at night was almost non existing and we waited a LONG time before it even began.
So dont use your prescious holiday time at this tourist trap!

I spent a great day with 6 other travellers (that I met in my jeep). We had an adventurous journey across the Eastern Desert, being well informed by our guide Mahmoud. The visit to the Bedouin Village was fascinating and the day concluded with a meal and watching the stars. Very good value for money and really interesting
