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.

    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.

    Lovely tour It was a wonderful tour where we did ride in a jeep through the desert, hiked up to a great viewpoint, visited a Bedouin village, had a candle-lit dinner and could stargaze the beautiful clear skies. Mohamed was very knowledgeable of astronomy and assisted us in seeing all the planets and constellations through the telescope. Very relaxed, yet a bit adventurous and so informative experience. Highly recommend!
