Great experience

We enjoyed the tour a lot and from the Oasis point the adventure started with several stops and even sandboarding. When the clouds disappeared we could enjoy the night sky. BBQ diner food was really delicious, cooked by our guide. Great trip with a great guidr. FYI, due to traffic jams drop off in downtown Cairo might be later, around 7pm in our case. Would recommend.
Amazing

Everything was great. We covered all spots we wanted to visit and a few more the next day. The dinner prepared by the driver/guide was made from scratch and tasted delicious !
White desert, Bahariya oasis trip

This was an amazing trip despite the cold temperatures and windy weather that whipped up the desert sands. The black desert had stunning rock colours and patterns and even though it was too windy to climb to the top of the mountain, we enjoyed the view. The crystal mountain had some great rock formations and a lovely view as well. The white desert was quiet and peaceful, the wind finally dropping overnight so that we could enjoy the campfire and stars! There were beautiful rock formations completely untouched by graffiti, garbage and noise pollution! Our drivers and guides were wonderful, going above and beyond to make sure that we saw and experienced everything and that we were comfortable, warm and well fed!
Se você é apaixonado por paisagem!!!

É difícil dizer que fui para o Egito e a experiência mais interessante não tenham sido as pirâmides, mas, senhores, acreditem, conhecer parte do deserto e passar a noite por lá foi sensacional.

Estive por lá em Dezembro/21, era inverno. A noite é bem gelada, não dormi super bem, mas, nada disso tira o brilho.

O lugar presencialmente é muito mais bonito do que pelas fotos. A ausência de poluição de luz faz com que o céu se torne um espetáculo à parte.

Dá pra ficar horas elogiando o deserto, agora, vamos falar da Deluxe e equipe.

Foram excelentes. Super pontuais, o que pra mim, é super importante.
Desde o motorista que nos buscou em Gizé, até o motorista no deserto estão de parabéns.

O único ponto que deve ser melhorado é que no ato da reserva via internet é cobrado um sinal (cartão de crédito) e o restante, me cobraram em Baharya, antes da saída.

Qdo se faz um compra online, mesmo com sinal, espera-se que o saldo seja cobrado naquele cartão, mas, não passava cartão lá, e eu teria que sacar.

Mas a própria pessoa que me cobrou foi super cordial e tranquila, e, via whatsapp o pessoal da Deluxe me enviou um link e paguei por lá.

Apenas esse detalhe deve melhorar, mais ainda assim, foram super eficientes.
