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 herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner. 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.

    Very friendly people who will take you for a ride by jeep with benches without holding rails (bumpy as a hell) to desert. Unfortunately stargazing is poor experience due to fact that is taking place too early, although they have good 10" Smith Cassegrain telescope you won't see anything spectacular like star clusters or galaxies. 4 stars is only reflecting their friendliness.

    A great adventure all round! From the guide to the photographer to the Bedouin family, we received a very friendly and warm welcome! The jeep ride was a real adventure in the truest sense of the word! Dinner was delicious and the sunset was just spectacular! Everything was super organized, on time and very safe! Thanks alot!

    It was a great tour! Our jeep driver was very crazy and nice, we had a lot of fun, both on the way there and back and during the safari. In the Bedouin village, everyone was very accommodating, the food was a bit unspectacular, but very tasty! On the viewpoint you could take great photos during the sunset, but we had to go back down before the complete sinking, because the stony way back would have been a bit tricky in the dark 1 star deduction, because due to the applicable rules for tourists in Egypt, unfortunately we were brought home before nightfall and therefore only a few stars could be seen in the sky. The tour was also in English and not in German as booked. Not a problem for us, but a nice to know for other bookers!
