A once in a lifetime experience in the magical desert landscape. The drive is quite long and the night in the tent was cold but it was all worth it. The stargazing under the bare desert sky was so incredible and the views in the Aqabat Valley and white desert were enchanting. Our guide Islam was funny, knowledgeable and a great cook. He made the experience absolutely unforgettable!

Fantastic experience made all the better by our brilliant guide Osama and our driver Adel. We can't thank them enough for making our tour a wounderful day. Osama is so knowledgeable, bringing all the history alive. Osama and Adel both so nice and kind. Would very much recommend to anyone.

This was an amazing experience! I had a completely different tour fall through and last minute decided to add this one and I’m so glad I did! Mahmoud was an awesome guide and showed me so much in one day. I’ll definitely be back to do a multi-day trip in the desert!
