We travel often and this trip booked 5 tours wirh 5 companies. They arrived as they usually do and we loaded up to head to the desert- but once our journey began it was immediately different than the others. Our guide Ahmed and the driver Gomma were attentive and made us feel comfortable. They did not go overboard with the same speech a lot of the other companies gave and simply conversed with us. During the trip they joined in, made us feel at ease and When we were finished he even took us to find the best Falafel in town despite how late it was. The next day we were going to rest but decided to go out and dispute confusion on price he worked with the vendor to get just what we wanted, he laughed/rode with us and even at the end of the evening stayed to take us for coffee taking his own Uber home. We didn’t just have a guide we made a friend and want to return because of his hospitality. Our only regret is not meeting Ahmed sooner. Thank you Ahmed and yes we know…. Green Apples :)

Fares was our guide and he was amazing. He arrived early and gave us so much information about Egypt throughout the trip. He was very nice and genuinely want us to have the best experience possible. There were also other guides for the camels and quads who were all very nice, ensuring the best experience. This is a must for everyone coming to Egypt. This is an experience to remember for the rest of your life.

This is definitely a hidden gem. It was nice to leave the city. Our guide, Ali, was very knowledgeable. Our driver, Mostafa arrived on time. Both Ali and Mostafa took great care of us. This tour is a treat. The lakes and desert are so picturesque. We had a delicious lunch and boat ride.

Very nice, Saber was well cultured and fun. Very smooth would strongly recommend this tour and mostly Saber! Enjoy!
