Full description
You'll begin by traveling from your hotel by jeep to the tour starting point. Once there, you will venture for 26 kilometers into the picturesque desert of Hurghada. You'll drive through the sunset observation area until you reach a Bedouin camp, and once at your Bedouin tent you will begin a camel riding session for 15 minutes. Following that, receive a cool and refreshing welcome drink as well as a herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner with romantic candles. After dinner, relish the tranquility of the desert whilst watching millions of stars in a calm atmosphere away from the noise of the city. Your guide will then take you on a trip to the edge of the universe to enjoy the vision of the distant milky way represented through the stars. You will have then the opportunity to see some of the planets, and will also learn exciting information about space and star science. Once you are done admiring the stars, you will be driven back to your hotel by Jeep.

    This was a really fun and memorable experience. It really felt like a desert adventure. The stargazing was a bonus - we got to see Jupiter and Saturn as well as many other stars and close ups of the moon. The guides we very helpful and accommodating, they actually recommended I go a different day because the day I initially selected was going to be cloudy.

    Lovely tour It was a wonderful tour where we did ride in a jeep through the desert, hiked up to a great viewpoint, visited a Bedouin village, had a candle-lit dinner and could stargaze the beautiful clear skies. Mohamed was very knowledgeable of astronomy and assisted us in seeing all the planets and constellations through the telescope. Very relaxed, yet a bit adventurous and so informative experience. Highly recommend!

    The tour with Mohammed was super nice! It was a great, relaxed and open atmosphere and we had the pleasure of getting to know the desert with all its special features! The clear starry sky and the view at sunset took our breath away! Mohammed was very friendly, unobtrusive and attentive and could tell us a lot about the Bedouins and the stars! We can heartily recommend the trip!
