        I definitely recommend!!
        The tour is totally worth it!!! I highly recommend!! The photos tell by their own, I was so glad to have found this tour. Amir was extremely professional and assisted me every time I needed. His desert driver was well experienced and showed us the best spots to visit. Also, he prepared delicious dishes and offered water when we needed. I felt safe!

        Definitely coming back!
        The best of our tours in Egypt, so much more relaxing and special than any other activity. The Bedouins were kind and welcoming without being too intense or smothering. The desert night is perfect, and the white and black desert are marvelous. The temperature in May was really good, the evening was not too cold, probably around 18 degrees, a sweater was enough to stay comfortable. If youre lucky you can spot a white fox (completely harmless and mostly shy, nothing to be scared of). Our guide Badr was very hospitable and knew the desert very well.

        Amazing experience!
        The jeep excursion to the White and Black Desert and the night in a tent was a fabulous experience! The organizer, Amir, was very accommodating, even allowing us to change the return point. He provided clear instructions, and there were no negative aspects of the program. Our driver in the desert, Badr, was the best we could have hoped for! He made sure we had fun and set up very comfortable tents for us to sleep in, as well as preparing delicious dinner and breakfast, a barbecue, and a fire where we could relax, drink tea in the evening, and watch the stars. I highly recommend this excursion! I will definitely contact Amir in the future for new adventures! Thank you for everything.

        Cairo - Bahariya - white Desert One Night Two Days
        Had a magical and unforgettable experience exploring the contrasting landscapes of the black desert and white desert! The beauty of nature truly is breathtaking and left a lasting impression on me. Enjoyed having great company in such a picturesque setting added to the overall experience, bringing a sense of warmth and comfort.

        I would recommend doing a desert tour
        The guide was very experienced! We had a great experience touring the desert! It was more windy than we imagined. Please note that while tipping the guide at the end is optional, it is non optional.. they will keep bothering you until you tip so be prepared for that!

        Dont spend too much time in Cairo and come to the desert
        Amazing experience. The best possible way to scape from busy Cairo and immerse into the quietness but full of entertainment Egyptian desert. The team organised everything really good and we had the best possible experience. Super skilled 4x4 drivers that are really into making the best out of your trip and Amir, the manager, was helpful from weeks before our arrival to the last minute of the tour. Ive been in the Sahara before but i never seen such a different landscapes and incredible sights in the desert, also the sandboarding was extremely fun. Im still spitting stones.. xD

        The tour is worth it. We had so much fun during this trip. The food is good especially the BBQ dinner. Sleeping under the stars is something that you wouldn't forget for the rest of your life.

        Good Travel Experice, average travel organzier
        The price I paid is a little bit high. Other people from the same group were paying about 60usd only from other app. While the trip was splendid worthwhile a long bus drive. The desert was really amazing. Our jeep drivers were very helpful and made delicious meals. The stary night were really an unforgetable exprience. Please do bring some more clothes since the night was freezing... Another thing to be mentioned is the transfer back to city. On the booking page it is indicated clearly that we should be send back to each's hotel. While in fact we had been dropped only some place of nowhere near Giza Pyramid abbandoned and everyone had to call taxi.

        Most unique place in Egypt
        I went to Siwa right away after I arrived in Egypt and it made me fall in love with Egypt even easier. After other cities I went after that, now I can say Siwa is most unique, surreal place in Egypt. And all this good memories and experiences that I could get was, for sure, thanks to Amir. (and of course, Hesham) Communication with Amir was fast and clear and Hesham, the best driver, was friendly and so considerate. They cared me all day all the time for 2nights 3days and I felt they treated me their best. Siwa city tour guide was friendly and professional with fluent English, Safari jeep driver gave me most exciting moment with his perfect driving skill. If you think all the cities in Egypt look similar or if you feel like you are now familiar with Egypt, it’s time for you to head for Siwa and this tour will definitely complete your experience. In

        White desert - you musta do
        ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT and worth doing!!! Ahmed safari camp and hotelBaharaya oasis was so fun, punctual and loved the tour altogether. Getting to sleep with the stars overhead (optional tent if you want) and waking up to see the sunrise was a highlight for me. Tour was very punctual and the staff and the head organizer, and my driver, owner, Ahmed took care of the group and individually so well. Would recommend completely!!!

        Trip of a lifetime
        Booked this as a solo traveller and as the description looked great, the actual trip was MUCH MORE BETTER and worth than any description or photos. - pick up from hotel on time - very friendly tour guides and driver - our guide Bader was really great and went above and beyond for everyone’s comfort and even made sure I got something gluten free for dinner - we visited so many great locations and spent some time at each. Not a dull moment

      Incredible trip to the White desert! It's a long trip in the same day from Cairo but with White Desert Travel you will travel in new and comfortable cars that will make you have a pleasant run.
      Also we needed support for other plans in Cairo and they helped us a lot to have an incredible journey in Egypt. Their drivers are very patient and make you feel happy all the time, and also very safe!

      The tour nit Bada was absolutely AMAZING! The food is authentic and very tasty. Not only was the guide a fantastic driver, cook and host, but also a very courteous and very pleasant tea companion.
      I will definitely do a longer tour with Bada in August next year. Another highlight was falling asleep under the starry sky in absolute silence. The tour was in English but the guide Amir also offers tours in very good German. Either way, the tour is a must do.

      The White Desert itself is a very nice place, so it's worth going. However, there is a problem with this tour company staff. After you book this tour, please confirm the reservation details to the tour company staff who contact you by WhatsApp.

      I booked a private one-day tour through Viator, but due to a mistake of the tour company, I was put on a two-day desert camp group tour.

      I got explanation of tour introduction at safari camp, after driving 5 hrs from Cairo. Then I found they merge me to different tour. I talked with the tour staff about this trouble, and they arranged car for the return trip when the group plans for the first day were over. There was no choice. I arrived at Cairo 3 am.
      I am grateful that the driver who drove midnight. And all staff at Safari camp were good.
      Since the process is different for 1 day tours and overnight tours, I couldn't visit to Baharia Oasis. It's so sad.

      When I complained about this through Viator, tour agent changed my Viator reservation status to "canceled" to make me don't leave review. I'm really discouraged about this dishonest and impolite response. Please note any low review are hidden by such a underhanded.
      The White Desert and drivers are rated ★★★★★, but the company staff is not.

      Hello dear, have a nice day, please you forgot to tell us that we call you when you arrived our hotel and asked you to go the white desert alone and back to the same day but you choose to go with the group, and you did the exactly tour and come back with private car and after you finish the tour you asked us for full refund that's not fair to do everything and you are satisfied from our drivers and services then give us 2** any way thanks for your review and you are welcome in any time you decide to come back to the white desert

      Owing to change in circumstance, I was unable to take a two day tour, and instead opted for a one day tour. Communication with Amir was simply excellent, and arranging for pick up in Nasser City so straightforward.

      The one day was a long day - in total collected at 0600 and returned at 0100. I really wished I had been able to stretch the time and made it a two day trip, but there we are.

      As for the trip - in summary:

      Journey out/back - safe driver on desert roads; never felt anxious. I have lived and worked in Egypt, and as a UK person, can be twitchy about these journeys.

      Meals provided - basic and nutritious; but, not the highest standard of Egyptian cuisine. I was not there for a food tour, and no one complained. In review, it was all okay.

      Black Desert - extraordinary, but do your own research prior to getting there. Sites have no interpretation, and the tour guides are drivers. If you want to enjoy the views, it is enough, if you want more information then prepare.

      White Desert - again an incredible landscape, and the 4x4 Safari through it was a memory of adventure. The whole experience of rocking about in the jeep, travelling with others through sand fields, the horizon and the landscapes was simply superb!

      WAS IT VALUE FOR MONEY - yes! Pricey, but the value was there to be seen
      WOULD I GO AGAIN - absolutely, I will. Next time, I will aim to camp over on the 2 Day Trip

      We took the private tour. They picked us up at 6.30 from hotel in Giza and started our journey. We reached Amir's hotel around 1 and then had a tummy full lunch and covwred multiple places on the way before we finally reached our campsite. the arrangements (from food to eating and sleeping arrangements) were exemplary and the sleeping bags were so cozy. We slept outside under the stars in the peace of the nature and the group we had was amazing and not noisy, so that made the experience even more great. I loved every moment of the whole night and morning. We packed up and started back again stopped at 2 sites back.

      Some things which I felt missing :
      1. Journey - Driver (until requested) was using phone on the highway drive. Once we requested, they stopped. And on the way back, 2 people on the front seat were smoking which was annoying and driver didnt stop them
      2. Another thing was food - vegetarian food option was very limited, and drinks were limited to with meal only. the advertisement for preparation indicated they will be more available.

      But both of these, were nothing compared to the amazing experience we got to live!
