The greats. The area and scenery are amazing. The food was really good. In January, you are given adequate sleeping bags and blankets, but do stay in the canvas tent and not the individual tents. The drive to and from Cairo was efficient and comfortable. The truck and driving in the desert was good.

The not so great. We were expecting to have an English speaking guide. We did not get one. The two men, who are probably really great people, did not speak English other than “take picture” and “go walk over there”. It was just a taxi service with food and tents. We were not given any explanation about the area other than the names. We tried to ask questions but they did not understand us. We were not even asked our names. It was 24 hours of awkward silence. That silence darkened the entire tour and I wish I had not gone.

We went on a 2-day 1-night White Desert Tour in December 2021 with Islam from White Desert Tour.

It was an amazing experience that me and my girlfriend will never forget. The entire trip went extremely smoothly and we have felt 100% safe during the entire tour. In the morning, you are picked up from the hotel after which you drive to the starting point of the tour in 3-4 hours. There Islam makes you a nice lunch, after which you jump in a 4X4 to drive to the white desert, making amazing stops on the way. We have climbed hills in the black desert, seen beautiful valleys in the white desert and even sandboarded!

Around sunset you will reach the camp, where Islam and his crew prepare a delicious meal. After the meal, you sit around the campfire under a beautiful starry sky and listen to local music Islam and his crew play. We slept in a very comfortable tent in very warm blankets and were not cold at all – despite it being a cold night.
The next day you will visit other sights, after which you eat lunch at the starting point and will return to Cairo – again convenient hotel drop off. I can 100% the amazing tour that Islam offers, he is a great man that will go out of his way to give you a great experience! You can reach Islam on Whatsapp +20 127 709 8180.

This was the best experience we had during our time in Egypt. The place is truly magical and like no other I've seen before. Our guide Islam is local to the area and cares deeply about the desert. They even stopped the car to pick up trash whenever they saw something laying around.

During the winter time it can get very chilly at night, so bring extra layers, but there's plenty of hot food, bedouin tea and blankets to keep you warm :)

You can reach out to him via WhatsApp 00201277098180

Thank you again, for the unforgettable experience!

The food was amazing, the drive was incredible, and Islam as a tour guide gave me and the others in the group a unique experience that I am happy I was able to be a part of.
I was worried about going to the white desert, but I felt very safe on this tour.
Do not pass up a night under the stars. It was truly unforgettable.

This tour was just perfect. Absolutely everything from the very beginning to the end. Islam and Saleh are a very good team, very punctual (very rare in Egypt). At 5AM the car was waiting for us right near the hotel, the tour locations were epic, absolutely all of them. The food was made with love.

Everything was awesome! Thank you!:)
