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 tour was great. I just booked 2 hours before pick up but the contact via WhatsApp was prompt. The best thing was that our group (7 guys) was always without other tourists as Mahammad planned the tour anticyclic to other tours. Riding through the desert and star gazing was a new experience and amazing. I can absolutely recommend this tour.

After a call through the desert, we came to the Bedouins. We got tea, then a camel ride. Back in camp, we got info on stargazing. BBQ was served as a buffet so you could choose what to eat. There was nothing missing, it was fine low for us. As darkness fell, we went to the telescope and saw stars and the moon. Our guide told us about the stars, how far they were and the constellations. A trip I can easily recommend, for those who are interested in stars, just not for those with bad backs or walking difficulties. A good experience, away from hotels and city.
