Great organization and guide! Very cool itinerary and sights. The only thing to be aware of is that from Cairo to bahariya it’s on a Shared Public bus but it was no problem…

Mohammed and Miguel were awesome hosts on our trip out. The food at the campsite was incredible, the desert is stunning and the silence in the desert with the glow of the white rock formations was magical at night. The sand boarding was so fun I could have done it half the day and I wish we had more time just to sand board! The off roading was exciting and a blast! I definitely recommend this trip, but I do recommend doing more than 1 day. It’s a long drive out there and if you use the public bus it’s a bit confusing as to what’s going on so having more than 1 night to really take your time exploring would have been the best. Despite having limited time we enjoyed an incredible sunset and sunrise, had great views of the desert and got up close to the formations. When we woke up in the morning there were fox prints everywhere and we had fun looking at them with a hot cup of delicious tea!

The safari was amazing, the bus ride out is a bit long but it’s completely worth every second. Once we arrived we were greeting with lunch and tea before we started our journey into the desert. We saw all kinds of dunes and mountains. Dinner and cooked right in front of us and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Pack all of the with the option to sleep under the stars it was a trip we will never forget!

a night to remember

We did a girls trip to Egypt and I will say one of the best experiences I've had in my traveling. I wont lie, we were all hesitant to book this trip as there were few reviews, and quite frankly thought it'd be a boring trip. The initial leg of the ride from Cairo to the camp hotel was long and not as expected. However, when we got there and met our desert guide (Michael, can't for the life of me remember his Arabic name), the experience was great. The number of stars you see in a dark sky; the silence you get to enjoy without the hustle and bustle of city life. A time that my entire group enjoyed and will cherish. Don't forget to bring wipes/TP, as the desert will be your bathroom. Also be sure to pack layers of clothing, we traveled in early March, it was warm during the day, but the night under the stars was quite cold. Also- approx 110 Egyptian Pounds (not included in the tour) for entry into the desert. The only reason I did not give it five stars was because we were told our 4 hour ride from Cairo to the desert hotel camp was going to be in a comfortable Jeep. It was actually the opposite. We spent the entire ride, 7 total passengers, crammed (with bags) into what would have been best for six people.

Dear valued customer, Thank you very much for taking from your time to review your email experience with Deluxe Travel on Viator. Firstly we are glad that you enjoyed your tour and overall it was a nice experience. One point I want to clarify concerning the itinerary it states transfer from Cairo to Baharia by public sharing minivan and not 4x4 Jeep. We apologize if you missed that info or it was not clear for you. We hope that you give us another opportunity to serve you as our guest and offer you a memorable experience.

Beatiful places and excellent staff

I was very positively surprised about the whole trip. First, the communication with the organizer and driver was smooth and clear. In Bahariya itself, we were given detailed instructions about what followed. The main guide was very experienced and willing to explain everything about the life in the desert and how the people cope with local conditions. The places such as Black Desert, Crystal Mountain, White Desert were beautiful and I had no idea such places exist in Sahara desert. The night itself was amazing, with Bedouin songs after the dinner next to a fire. Value for money for this trip is great.

My title best describes this adventure. Climbing black desert mountains, skiing down mountains of sand, trekking thru the white desert is like walking on another planet. So remote, so quiet, so desolate. We were fortunate enough to be there for a full moon. The night walk was as close to walking on another planet as anything I could ever imagine. The outpost station was great, the food was outstanding. If you take this trip you'll truly will never regret or forget it, if you dont, you just might regret it. Badar our guide made this adventure that much better. Be sure to ask for Badar

Excellent, your choice of sleeping under the stars or in a tent, I choose under the star and seen also a spectacular sunrise. Food was delicious and the rock formations amazing.
