Brilliant experience of horse riding which I definitely recommend. We did not get the bbq that was mentioned but this was due to a misunderstanding that we didn’t want it and wanted to go back home, at the same time it was not offered. I was very unhappy about this and was ready to get a partial refund, on the way back I spoke to the person in charge and the stable on phone and he could tell I wasn’t happy about that. He went out of his way to catch up to us on our way home in his own car. And asked if we wanted to have the bbq he would be willing to take us back and give us the bbq and then drop us off with no extra charge. I felt like this was really sincere and appreciated him doing that which is why I’m writing such a positive review. Lovely people definitely recommend

What an amazing afternoon out! The trip started with an off road experience which was great fun and with lovely guides (Kevin and Abdul). This took us to a bedouin camp where we took in the views and sunset from the top of a mountain - well worth the steps up! They prepared a lovely meal for us there and our hosts and star guide were very knowledgeable teaching us about their lifestyle and answering all our questions. Once it got dark we looked at the stars and the moon - again with lots of interesting information as well as lovely views. Highly recommend this trip.

One of the best experiences that I have ever had in Hurghada. Great and accurate communication. Extremely safe.

A great afternoon out in the desert, meeting the locals and just having fun, great value.

It was an amazing trip with an amazing team specially mr.ahmed our tour guide.
