This tour should not be referred to as just a visit to Valley of the Whales and the Waterfall. It should be described as a comprehensive dessert safari. The trip from Cairo was in a comfortable sedan, and after tea at on oasis we switched to a Land Cruiser. Then we took off

We did the tour valley of whale with Emo tour, and the tour guide name is Ahmed Morsy. The tour itself is very unique and spechless. Uniqe because we can see egypt from different side. Mostly people only know about Giza pyramids, Luxor, Aswan, nile cruise and surrounding Cairo.

Driving through the desert to find this valley was an incredible experience. The driver knew the place inside out (apparently lived his life around the field), and Mahmoud explained, in detail, from the geological formation of the spaces to the actual fossils you get to see once
