    We were exactly on time at the pick up location. Unfortunately the driver arrived 1 (one) hour later only... 2/3 of our family had first time experience by horse riding. But the local team helped a lot to have fun and to enjoy the trip. If you are familier with riding, you will have a lot of fun! The local team made fantastic pictures and videos of us.

    You have to experience this riding excursion. With a gallop through the desert and then to the beach in the water. Unfortunately, you can only gain such an experience in Germany as an experienced rider. After initially touching the guide, the ice broke quickly. Also suitable for less experienced riders!

    The horses are in good shape by Egyptian standards and the stable is tidy. The staff is trained “Egyptian” in handling horses. The dromedaries, on the other hand, didn't make a good impression on me. The desert ride to the water was really nice, it was flat on rocky ground for photos in the water, but not for riding on the beach, as I had imagined. For me it was absolutely horrible, it was so much filth. Here you simply dump your rubbish over the city limits into the desert. So I felt absolutely nothing of desert magic and no sunset helps either. This sight and the fact that I also caused rubbish here that was lying around there at some point clouded my entire holiday mood. Too bad.
