We had a wonderful night in the white desert! It was the most beautiful desert we have seen (so far :) ). Islam and his assistant made sure our travels and stay were excellent. Not only did he provide interesting information about the places we visited (black desert, crystal mountain, water source, white desert, oasis and I might have forgotten something), he was an excellent driver and a fantastic cook. We were lucky enough to have a sky full of stars and a moonrise which made the whole evening that more impressive. The accommodation in the desert was also decent camping material.

So yes 6 hours by bus is a lot but at night it passes quickly, but once in front of the pyramids or on the Nile for that matter I recommend the ride you forget all fatigue. Thanks to our guide in the museum thanks also to Mustapha all were helpful. Maybe plan a small snack before leaving to go home because after lunch we were hungry. Top excursion

Trip was exellent. Everything was fluent. Pick up in time (in the evening we made a call for more details by given number), bus with air conditioning. A lot of time near pyramids and sphinx. Lunch also great (eat whatever you want). The last stop in parfume and cosmetic shop - not necessary in our view but we all know that this is a business :)

Definitely worth to spend a few hours filled with culture exploration and adrenaline fun on a quad. Hats off to Emo Tours and specifically Ahmad Naga, who was super friendly and quite knowledgeable on all historical sites. The journey was enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

Amazing experience! Islam was really good and helpful in making the trip a really fun one! The camp was really good!! Everything went well and I highly recommend doing this offbeat adventure at the Sahara.
