The experience begins with pickup from your Sharm el-Sheikh accommodation and heads into the desert where an action-packed adventure awaits. Arrive at the dune buggy center and get equipped with the necessary safety gear and instructions for the ride. Once you’re ready, it’s time to hit the dunes and feel the wind in your hair as you experience the thrill of buggy riding across the sand. Ride your buggy to the fascinating Echo Sound area, also known as the Echo Temple, where you can learn about and listen to incredible sound waves. Next, drive to an authentic Bedouin-style camp and receive a warm welcome upon arrival as well as a traditional Habak tea. Later, enjoy a relaxing camel ride through the scenic sandy landscapes and admire the sun as it starts to set across the horizon.

Afterwards, watch a mesmerizing belly dance and Tanoura performance followed by an epic fire show. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to your accommodation.

Really enjoyed this experience, you're taken by Coach to the edge of the desert where you're met by a multiple groups riding their quad bikes and buggys. You ride deep into the desert before taking a 10-15 minute trip on a camel and then head to a makeshift large theatre in the middle of nowhere. Here you receive a meal and some drinks whilst watching some shows which was a great atmosphere. Afterwards you ride back towards the city in the middle of the dark which was pretty cool. Would've given it 5 stars but dropped a star was attempted to be scammed at the first stop by being offered a drink and then being charged £5 for a bottle of Coke when the tour states drinks included

Everything was well organized !!the driver was kind and exact at his time ,the instructor was also helpful ..the dinner was nice and the show very interesting. The boys that helped us with the buggy were so helpful and always close to us for helping with everything was needed. We feel safe !the only think that we didn't know it was that we have to pay for taking a picture with the snake or the monkey that was at the show. I truly recommend to book through this site cause it's provides you with all the best and also has really good prices !
