Fantastic from pick up to drop off. Such a beautiful Horse. Different way of riding to England and took a while to get back into swing of riding. It was one of my bucket list things to do. And an unforgetable memory. The guide was so sweet. Loved every minute.

It was amazing riding a horse in the desert. The animals are well taken care of and seem healthy and happy. The horses have their own character while still being well behaved. This is a great activity for beginners and experienced riders, I could freely gallop in the desert while a novice could lear the basics from the guide. By the end of the tour, a girl that was scared to ride without a lead was doing just that and had no fear at all. My favourite activity in Egypt.
