Full description

You'll begin by traveling from your hotel by jeep to the tour starting point. Once there, you will venture for 26 kilometers into the picturesque desert of Hurghada.

You'll drive through the sunset observation area until you reach a Bedouin camp, and once at your Bedouin tent, you will begin a camel riding session for 15 minutes. Following that, receive a cool and refreshing welcome drink as well as herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner. After dinner, relish the tranquility of the desert whilst watching millions of stars in a calm atmosphere away from the noise of the city. Your guide will then take you on a trip to the edge of the universe to enjoy the vision of the distant milky way represented through the stars.

You will have then the opportunity to see some of the planets, and will also learn exciting information about space and star science. Once you are done admiring the stars, you will be driven back to your hotel by Jeep.

    This went above and above our expectations! The ride out there was a surprise but in a good way, we were in tears laughing. The sunset was breathtaking and the tea and dinner were delicious. The camp was lovely and our guide was very clever, made us laugh with his fun personality and he taught us so much about the moon, the stars and our zodiac signs. This was a great bonding experience, a fantastic deal for the price and made such beautiful photos and happy memories. Only negative was when we bought the videos/photos it was a lot of footage of the other people on the tour riding the camels. Everything else was amazing.

    This excursion was wonderful! A group of us went together. It was a bit of a drive from the hotel (which makes sense, since you want to get away from the city lights) and took a bit of a bumpy off road ride through the desert. (We had a blast on the bumpy ride!) Once we reached the village we were able to see the animals and beautiful setup they had for us with the pillows. They drove us to the top of a mountain after the camel rides and we drank yummy Egyptian black tea while we watched the sunset. Once the sun was down, they drove us back (maybe 2 minutes drive) to the village where we had a beautifully prepared dinner of chicken, rice, fruit, and veggies. After that we got to enjoy the stars, look at the moon through a very high powered telescope, and learn about the constellations. They even gave us fresh watermelon after we were finished. I highly recommend this. It was lovely!

    A very nice experience. First we went outside into the desert, after a short break or a short introduction in a traditional tent we went over a water hole to what I think was the absolute highlight of the tour.. on the mountain at sunset, just because of the view worth attending. Then it goes to another place. After the fast and exciting quad tour, there is dinner. Nothing special, but nothing bad either. just average. After the meal there was an entertaining traditional evening show with various performances. Finally, we go to a somewhat remote place to watch the stars. In general, definitely recommended.. the tour guide Mohamed was very entertaining and was able to answer all questions.
