5/5 stars
Samir was awesome and my family of 5 (12, 10, & 7) had a blast!

Samir led us through the Sahara on a FUN 4-wheel drive adventure. We travelled to the perfect dune to learn how to sandboard and we all had fun making runs down the dune. We then continued our adventure on wheels to learn about the desert, see some fossil-ized whale remains in the desert, swam in the Magic Lake (a lovely oasis in the middle of the desert), and then toured some of the villages on our way back to Cairo where people leading donkeys loaded with freshly harvested Alfalfa Sprouts filled the streets. AWESOME TOUR, AWESOME GUIDE, AWESOME DAY!!!!!
