Our guide, Mohamed, was excellent on both a professional and personal level. He treated us wonderfully at all times, he was attentive and detailed, he took many photos of us and explained many things about the culture and customs of Egypt. As for the experience in the desert, I must say that it is TOTALLY recommended. Seeing that landscape that seems to be taken from a science fiction movie and contemplating the starry sky is priceless. It was, without a doubt, an experience we will never forget. Thank you Mohamed for making everything perfect.

A once in a lifetime experience in the magical desert landscape. The drive is quite long and the night in the tent was cold but it was all worth it. The stargazing under the bare desert sky was so incredible and the views in the Aqabat Valley and white desert were enchanting. Our guide Islam was funny, knowledgeable and a great cook. He made the experience absolutely unforgettable!
