Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

The aeolian features are simply amazing. The softness of the sand is crazy. The snow like ground confounds you. The stars at night are simply awesome and the sunset and sunrise is breathtaking. It was a beautiful day and even better night. Will definitely go again.

The beautiful White Desert really is like venturing to another planet. The limestone formations are freakishly surreal and driving through them in our 4x4 was a highlight. Every 5 kms of off-road driving sees the landscape change again- amazing!

This is a hidden gem in Egypt. This should be the top attraction in Cairo, and not the pyramids (nothing against the beauty of pyramids!). me and my husband did a overnight camping trip to White desert and were bowled over by the beauty of this place. The drive to the desert is amazing itself with stops like - black desert ( form volcanic eruptions), crystal mountain, desert flower, old white desert and new white desert. This desert was ocean;s bed millions of years ago. Our guide was a local expert driving us around in the desert, we also did some fun sand boarding. He made a quick camp, set bon fire, prepared fresh meal, Egyptian tea...in the white desert mesmerizing under the full moon. It was a breathtaking view and experience. I booked this through by Cairo tour company - Egypt fun tours. This a must must do!!

We did a 2 day 1 night tour of the white desert with Hamada and his partner in crime Salah. They are absolutely wonderful people and as a team they are the best you can get. We were advised against going on the trip to the desert by several people saying that it is not safe but this is something that can never be missed. It is absolutely safe and they make you feel at home. From the pickup at the hotel to the stay in the desert and the return journey, everything was flawless and well planned. The way Hamada treats the desert shows the passion and love he has for the desert and he is a wonderful host. Salah, his friend and travel companion is an absolute jem and he makes the night exciting with his music and cooking and constant jokes. Sleeping under the open sky and watching the milky way in the night was an experience we can never forget. I would totally recommend this tour to everyone who visits Egypt and trust me it is totally safe in the desert. We would definitely come back to stay for more nights in the desert as promised. Thanks Hamada and Salah for an unforgettable experience.

facinating. really away from it all. Good Beduin guys/guides. Good transport in exciting mode! Food ok. Basic but well worth the experience - note- no toilets so go behind a dune! Be sure to book ahead in Cairo and travel out of there with a smal group of 6 to 8 persons so as to have 2 jeeps provided for Desert Travel etc

The only white desert in the world, absolutely not to be missed. The trip was fascinating and a deep dive in the Egyptian desert culture. Totally advise doing it for 2 or more days... Sleeping under the starts after making a fire and have your beautiful barbecue dinner cooked is an unforgetable experience.
