It was a magical moment. Our guide Mohammed was very nice and spoke good French. But we wanted to have a special word for Islam which accompanied us all the stay, they cooked delicious food for us and took care of everything on the camp. The landscapes are incredible. I recommend. (However, you have to be aware that there is a lot of road around 10h round trip)

Delayed review but this trip still lives in our minds! - We were picked up from our place in Cairo in a spacious and well air-conditioned car. The journey was long but the driver was cautious in the road and fulfilled all our needs when we needed to stop or snack. - After a little break when we reached the stoping point, we headed to the desert in fully equiped and clean jeeps with air-conditioners and we were provided with water at all times. - Even through a really active 2 day trip in the hot desert we never got hungry and were constantly provided with local freshly cooked food as well as packed snacks. All of our snacks that we took with us came back to Cairo. We definitely recommend this tour trip and we don't think you could find a better deal! We will be returning God willing!

Amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience! The trip is quite long, it took about 4 hours to get to our guide Eslam's house from Cairo. We liked that both guides drive smoothly. Our long trip was rewarded with delicious and hearty home-cooked lunch. After that we went to our destinations: Black Desert, Crystal Mountain and White Desert. The places are incredible! Feels like being on another planet. Our dinner and breakfast in the camp were awesome too! I guess that's what called true Egyptian hospitality. But the most unforgettable part was sleeping under the starry sky! Special thanks to the guides for 3 am Enrique Iglesias alarm clock. When he sings 'I can be your hero, baby' and you open your eyes, you see indescribable beauty of billions of stars and the Milky Way! It completely blew our minds and we think that our life will never be the same after that. We just didn't want to sleep in out 5 * hotel room after we've seen this! Huge thank you, guys, for your amazi
