I will start out with the good. The sunset on top of the cliff was beautiful! Here you could sit and just watch the sunset with a coffee/tea in hand or opt to ride the camel they had available. Once the sun had set, we moved down to the house where we sat outside for a wonderful meal by lantern making friends with the 7 others on the tour. After the sun had completely disappeared behind the mountains, they turned out all the lights and we began our star gazing adventure, seeing more and brighter stars than I have seen in many years. We were able to clearly see Venus, Jupiter and Saturn as well. No the not so great. Pickup time wasn’t communicated until the day before and they told us an hour before our booked time which caused issues since we were travelling to Hurghada the day of the tour. I told them immediately we would not be able to make the time they told us because we weren’t scheduled to be in town until 10 min after the time they stated. They said they understood but I still felt hassled because they showed up the time they discussed and got upset when we were “late” because we were checking into our hotel. Nothing on their site says there will be a different pickup time, so this should be included on their booking information for others to be aware of if they plan to change pickup times. The Jeep they pick you up in is extremely uncomfortable and you should definitely let them know if you get car sick, because the ride out is not pleasant. They also had a really round about way of dropping people off after the tour, passing by Hurghada and going 25 min south to drop off 4 people prior to those in Hurghada they completely passed right by. I get they were trying to drop off in the same pattern in which they picked up, but it added an hour to driving time so it really just didn’t make much sense. Finally, it is not quite a “romantic” dinner by candlelight as described in the tour info as there were 9 of us around 2 tables, but we made friends and had a wonderful time.

It was nice to be able to go in the desert, witness the Bedouin's ways and watch a spectacular sunset. We chose not to ride the camel as we did this in the past. Back at the station we ate a good dinner and than gazed through the telescope...we were lucky to have a full moon... But this was also a source of light and we did not see all the other stars that well. But our astronomy guide compensated with informative and passionate explanations. A nice experience!

Quite disappointing. The jeep journey was perfect, a visit the village too, but in reality you don't get what you pay for. (and I am not talking about 2 minutes of camel ride instede of 15). at 6 pm, you leave the village back to the "base", next to the city, where you have dinner with 60 other people, it is definitely not by candlelight (you are happy to find the place for sit) and "romantic". We didn't even see the sunset. And star gazing? In the middle of this base, light pollution, horror. You are not in the dark at all - see my photo. The guide is phenomenal, great and perfect, and tried to save the whole trip. He also explained to us that the trip normally looks different, but needs permission from the police to be watching the stars in the desert. Ok, I get it, but we just didn't get what we paid for. The travel agent should change the description, at least until everything looks as it should. 3* just for the guide, otherwise it would be 1*.

Hello Jenna, Normally we do the starwatching inside the desert, but in this day the police advise us very late that we need to leave the area early. So we try to not break up the trip and bring you to our base to have the starwatching from there. The sunset starting BTW at 5.00 PM and you leave the desert at 7.30 PM .

I specifically asked if it would be possible to photograph the Milky Way on this tour. The organiser consulted with the astronomer and I was told no, the Milky Way is not yet visible. But I could take nice shots of the moon instead. Okay, also nice. However, once we actually got to the location – a Bedouin village – the astronomer told me it was not possible to photograph the moon as it wouldn't rise until 1am, and we would be leaving around 7.30pm/8pm.

The astronomy experience was okay for me but as a hobby astronomer myself, it didn't really add much. I had booked this tour to take photos of the stars much like those advertised on TripAdvisor. Sadly, we left about 75min after sunset so it wasn't really dark enough to take great photos - and no moon was visible at all.

Also, there was some unexpected uphill walking in the desert that I'd rather have skipped. I'm asthmatic and I would have needed to know beforehand to bring emergency medication. I've been to the desert before so I was really in this purely for the stars and for 4 out of the 5 hrs of the tour, the sun was shining.

Hello Anna, Our team inform you few days before the trip, that you couldn't see the milkyway in this time of the year. Our professional astronomy Mohamed study 10 years the stars and get his knowledge from the beduin people, which was one of the first humans with a big knowledge about the space, stars and planets. To make good pictures of the stars you can do it with your mobile through the telescope or you have a professional photo equipment with you. To make pictures of the stars without objective it's impossible. A lot of people enjoy our starwatching trip with going home satisfied. Mohamed offer all customer to make pictures through the telescope which looking really great. The other guests who was with you in this day haven't nothing to complain. Best greetings Egyptra Travel Team

Great trip to Red Sea mountains, offering the opportunity to see not only a Bedouin village, great food and an amazing landscape, but also a wonderful presentation of the night sky and stars, by a knowledgeable host using a telescope.

On top of this, the adrenaline-ridden ride to the location, off-rod in a jeep, adds to the experience.

Not to mention the 2-hour wait without ANY explanation, the meal offered at 4pm (??) and the meeting with the Bedouins which looks more like a visit to a zoo (not a glance, not a word: we really feel like thieves when we want to learn about them).
Please, run away! The night in the desert is actually in the middle of the city and you see NOTHING because of the light pollution. In spite of the kindness of the driver and the passion of the astronomer, I keep as a memory only an uncomfortable moment in front of a coal black sky.

Hello Manon, Our Camp located 25 km far from Hurghada and is the home of a traditional Bedouin family. This humans know every corner of the desert and live under this hard condition without any technique. We have to give them respect. They don't have a high education this why you go with a guide there, who explain you about their life. When there is no perfect condition for starwatching we inform all customer early enough and offer them alternative date with clear sky. It have high priority for us to bring the stars more close to you. Kind Regards Egyptra Travel Team

The whole trip was just breathtaking. We were picked up on time and after collecting the other guests you start driving into the desert. The drive with the Jeep is already fun and the first stop is a mountain where you have a stunning view over Hurghada. The drive continues deeper into the valley until you reach a Beduine village. We were welcomed by the children of the village and started with the camel ride which was nice and easy. Next we walked through the village and saw how the bread was made until we reached our dinner spot. First we had some tea and Mohammed told us about the Beduine culture and life style. Next we had a truly delicious dinner followed by the star watching. Mohammed is very knowledgeable and told us about the star constellations. He is a fantastic host and the experience was amazing. It is not just star watching but a desert adventure in which you get to meet Beduines, see their village and learn about them. This is a must for anyone visiting the Hurghada area.
