Full description
The tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Cairo at 7AM and heads out of the city across the surrounding desert landscapes. The first stop of the day is the stunning Bahariya Oasis, which was once the agricultural center during Pharaonic times but is now famous for its abundance of dates and olives. Explore the oasis with your guide and admire the sprawling landscape of shady palms and natural springs.

After lunch visit the Black Desert, a fascinating landscape with rugged mountain-like domes that contrast against the sandy surroundings. Next, visit the nearby Agabat, a beautiful valley with imposing white cliff faces and yellow limestone rocks. Follow on to the Crystal Mountain, an incredibly unique formation made entirely of calcite crystal that sparkles and shimmers under the Egyptian sun.

Head over to the White Desert next, named for its sprawling white sandy landscape that stretches across the horizon. Climb a number of sand dunes and marvel at the jaw-dropping views that seem to go on forever. As evening draws near, enjoy a delicious dinner against the backdrop of the desert and soak up more jaw-dropping views as you dine. Finally, relax on the journey back to Cairo and arrive at your hotel at approximately 11PM.
