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 a herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner with romantic candles. 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.

    Amazing! We were picked up in front of our hotel, enjoyed an authentic ride with the jeep through the desert. Then visited the Bedouin village and our guide was very patient and friendly, explaining everything in detail. We took a ride on the camel which was an amazing experience! Then it got dark and we sat and listened to our guide tales about Bedouins and we had a delicious dinner at the light of the candles. Then we looked at the stars through a telescope and once again our guide explained us a lot of things about astrology. As you can notice, we did a lot of things but nobody hurried us, we were very calm and happy!! I recommend this trip from the bottom of my heart!

    The guide had a lot of knowledge and was welcoming. But he picked us up at 2pm at the hotel, and the excursion lasted all day until 7pm when we gazed at the stars only 1:30 am. The car was in disastrous condition and fell short of Jeep standards. We were in the back of a van on dirty benches. Without specifying that we drove an hour in the desert under these conditions. Do not think of going on a camel ride, there is none (covid period) However very good dinner

    This was a really fun and memorable experience. It really felt like a desert adventure. The stargazing was a bonus - we got to see Jupiter and Saturn as well as many other stars and close ups of the moon. The guides we very helpful and accommodating, they actually recommended I go a different day because the day I initially selected was going to be cloudy.
