I was collected from outside the hotel for my first ATV rides and after a few stops to pick up others we arrived at the venue. As I have been on this type of trip 4 or 5 times before I didn’t want the slow vanilla version but wanted something a little more challenging. It was only a few hundred Egyptian dollars more to have a private tour. We were off before everyone else and the speeds were averaging 20mph according to my Apple Watch. Safe enough but fast enough to be thrilling. First stop were the echo mountains. I had been there many times so there was no thrill to that but the photography skills of our guide was off the charts and the pics were high quality and at times hilarious. We had a stop at the camp where camel rides and drinks were on sale and there were toilets available for those who needed them. A 15 min break and we jumped back on for the ride back. This was a great day and when I got back to the hotel I immediately booked again for tomorrow

best experience! riding the quad in the desert was the most amazing thing. show and food were great! thank you Manu for helping my friend Ileana with the quad!

Very well organised. Friendly hosts, nothing a problem. I highly recommend this trip, so much in one excursion.

Great value for money, we had a great time and really enjoyed being out in the desert

Truly nice and good guide, the same goes for the driver :)
