Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Visited the Black Desert, Crystal Mountain, Agabat Valley, and the Old and New White Desert. We’re amazed by the surreal scenery and the variety of landscapes in the area. Stargazing at night was incredible.

    And Mohammed is the best tour guide, chef and photographer all in one. He grew up in this area, was passionate about his work, and spoke excellent English. He made a great dinner right in the middle of the desert, which was one of the best food I’ve had in Egypt! He helped us to take so many amazing pictures too. Ahmed, the driver who drove us from and back to Cairo, was professional and friendly as well.

    It’s a 4 to 5-hour drive from Cairo to the staring point of the tour, but in the end I think it’s all worth it. Don’t miss it if you’re coming to Egypt!

    My partner and I had the pleasure to be taken to camp a night in the white desert.
    We've been pickup up from the hostel in the area at the late morning and taken to a lovely tent to eat with other campers and socialize before going on the road. Our guide took us through wonderful landscapes and different experiences. He was friendly and patient. So many breathtaking sceneries in this journey. We've been given our own tent, saw the sun setting into the white desert, as well as the sunrise. Amazing. Fantastic food has been cooked and served to us, inclusive in the price. We thank Mohamed and his associates for this wonderful experience!

    We are a family of four with 2 teenagers and did a 2 days tour in the desert with Hamada. We strongly recommend anyone to make this tour part of their stay in Egypt as the landscapes were totally out of this world!Hamada is very friendly, reliable and knowledgeable about the desert and Bedouins’ life. Everything was organized from our pick up in Cairo to the return on the following day. After a delicious lunch at Hamada’s house, we left for the black desert and crystal mountains, and some fun rides on the sand dunes. The campement in the white desert is absolutely amazing, and the sunset quite unique. After a diner and tea around the fire with traditional songs, we set up the mattresses in the desert to stargaze in complete silence… A very special moment for us all. Hamada, thank you so much again for this beautiful experience. It was not just a trip you offered us but lifetime memories we will forever cherish in our hearts… The Müller family

    Communication from abroad was easy and response time was fast. Ahmed and his team provided excellent service and we enjoyed dining under the stars in the gorgeous desert and adventuring in the sand. Ahmed is a wonderful guide and professional guide in the desert. He explained everything to us. I recommend it and I will come back again with Ahmed

    Sameh and his team are highly professional guides providing an authentic safari experience in the western desert. Extremely genuine and hospitable environment, cooking delicious food with love and a sense of safety as well as adventure. Easily best safari trip in Egypt.

    I strongly recommend Hany as your guide for your next Egypt trip.

    He is generous in his smiles, his time and his supplies. I had a wonderful time in the West Desert with him, camped in the White desert (in luxurious sleeping bags and under warm camel blankets) amongst the wind carved stones, saw the beautiful crystals and fossils created by the change in the environment millions of years ago, enjoyed his very flavourful cooking and overall felt like I was travelling with an old friend.
    I will certainly be back and request his company for my next adventure in Egypt, and so should you.

    I went on a solo trip to Egypt & had an amazing time during the White Desert camping. I was greeted by the friendly owner, Tamer, with his lovely cat after a long 4 hour drive from my hotel in Giza. Two awesome tour guides took care of me (Reda & his assistant) during the tour and cooked a delicious, authentic Egyptian dinner with chicken stew, lentil soup, and vegetables. It was an unforgettable meal for a foodie like me. The different landscapes (crystal mountain, agabat area black & white desert) are distinctly beautiful & made me feel like I was in my favorite movie Dune. It was such a wonderful experience and I would love to relive this adventure again.

    We did the two nights tour and had such an amazing time in the desert with Mohamed. He's friendly, speaks great English and is so knowledgeable about the area.

    After our pickup in Cairo we received a tasty lunch before heading into the desert in a private 4x4 car. We stopped at multiple sites, before reaching our camping spot. Mohamed then made us a fantastic bbq dinner and we spent the night under the stars.

    The next morning we were taken to a local hotel to freshen up and eat lunch. In the afternoon we were shown local sites in the Oasis before having dinner.

    All in all it was a great experience. Can 100% recommend going to the white desert with this company.

    Though many tour groups offer similar itineraries, what sets this one apart is Mohamed's local knowledge about the area, the ways of living, the land and the culture!

    Having Mahmoud as our guide made everything so perfect. Right from the start, taking to various places, explaining the details, sand boarding fun, the delicious yummy dinner and the photography that he helps with is just amazing. Make sure that you take him as your guide and everything is sorted.
