Hands down the best not-sightseeing activity I have done during my stay in Hurghada. All horses are so calm and well trained. I am sure they take really good care of them. Our lecturer was very patient and helpful. During your ride you can trot or even gallop, but it’s definitely okay when you don’t want to. In my opinion, suitable for both beginners and experienced riders. A truly magical experience. I am coming back when again in Egypt. Recommended.

Super!!! Our group was very small, 3 people and a guide. The horses were well cared for. The ride went first into the desert, a unique experience. Our guide took photos and videos of us with our cellphones the whole time, he was great! Then it was on to the beach and into the sea. From there back home. I can only recommend it and also advise booking it online. Others have paid 45,- through the tour operator for the same ride. The money ends up with the wrong people. Better to book online and tip well!

The transport was way too long! It took forever until we were at the starting point. The guys were there first. It was a bit unfriendly afterwards and you understood the humor. Leaving was great. But it would be better if it were explained how to deal with the horse as a beginner. That was completely missing and was sometimes also dangerous when galloping Otherwise it was great and going into the water with the horse was really great
