Awesome bonus day outside of Cairo!
Taylor_G, 20-05-2022
This trip was such a bonus! We were looking for another trip to take on one of our days in Cairo and we are so glad we picked this one. One of our best days! During this tour we were able to get out of Cairo and see the non-city side and had so much fun doing it. Our driver and guide Mahmoud made sure we were always staying hydrated and that we had a good time. Our guide Mahmoud also took some amazing photos of us and made sure to tailor the experience more to our interests and made it really fun.
First we stopped at the White Desert Camp where we were able to enjoy some tea and coffee and some sand boarding. We then took a land cruiser with an amazing driver through the desert which was a really cool and fun experience driving across the dunes. We had some time to explore the museum there and check out some giant skeletons both in the museum and on a track around it. Following this we were able to cool off by wading into one of the local salt lakes - we didn't personally choose to swim but did see others doing so! It was very refreshing to be there! We then headed to the water falls where we saw many local to the area taking a swim and enjoying the waterfall. Rounding out our day we returned to the desert camp and had a delicious lunch before returning to Cairo. If you have a day and want a change of pace this is perfect!
A must have

With this tour we had an unforgettable experience in the desert. Egypt has so much to offer and this piece of heaven crowns it all. In an unique landscape we climbed on rocks, we swam in the scenic lake, learnt about evolution, drove the 4x4 like a rollercoaster and ate like the beduins. Along we had our magnificent guide Tolba, who carried all the way about our well-being and contributed a lot to our fun, together with Adel who drove the 4x4 sooo cool. I recommend Tolba as the perfect guide for this amazing trip! So cooool!!!
The highlight of my 4-week trip to Egypt

This had to the best excursion I did on a 4-week trip to Egypt. I had a private tour and from beginning to end, I was given the royal treatment. The guide, drivers, and whole experience was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you appreciate natural history like me, this tour is for you!
Most memorable for us was...

The tour to the Valley of the Whales was more fun then expected, and the lunch was the very best meal we had in Egypt. Mohamed Salah, our guide is very knowledgeable and speaks very good English. Our driver was Mohamed Hosney, and he is an expert Cairo driver!! Overall, I was very pleased with the excursion.
