          Awesome 1 night White desert tour
          We booked the 1 Night tour with Hamada and it was really great! We saw beautiful places, the driver was incridible, they cooked great food and were awesome company as well. Best thing was because he was a local he knew the places the tour guides from Cairo didn’t.

          Agpat Valley, White Desert and Christal Mountains - 4 days, 3 night tour.
          Khalid from Western Desert Tours planned a fantastic bespoke desert tour for us. It was thoroughly enjoyable, informative and perfectly relaxing. Khalid arranged for us to be picked up at our Cairo hotel and driven to Bahariya Oasis where he made us feel very welcome. He provided lunch in their delightful home, before we set off into the desert in his sturdy Toyota Landcruiser. Khalid and Ahmed were our guides, they made camp for three nights in the desert and cooked three meals a day. The food was excellent and included a lot of home grown fruit and home made food such as cheese from their own goats. We are vegetarian and they had no trouble preparing vegetarian meals for us. The desert is truly amazing, there is so much more to see than just sand! The small volcanoes and hills in the Black Desert, the Mars like hills of Agpat Valley, the incredable shapes of the chalk rocks in the White Desert and the moonscapes and sand dunes in between where you can see fossils and pieces of magma from the many volcanic ridges that were active millions of years ago when the desert was a part of the Tethys sea. At the end of the tour we had lunch once again at Khalids house in Bahariya Oasis before being driven back to our hotel in Cairo. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend Western Desert Tours to anyone wanting to see the marvellous Egyptian Sahara desert. khalid's English is excellent. His driving is safe and he is totally trustworthy. We felt safe at all times. He is extremely knowledgeable about the desert and taught us loads.

          Incredible experience of white desert!
          we had an absolutely incredible trip with Desert Treasures Tours. The guide Mahmoud was outstanding and well informed about the area. The drive in and out was long but totally worth it. Driving through black desert was surreal, we did some sandboarding as well. the highlight remains the white desert trip and camping under the stars. the team looked after us really well. This is a real treasure and we highly recommend this trip. The landscape looked like covered with ice, the gorgeous sunrise & sunset lighting adding a brilliant pink-orange hue. Great meals all along. While there a few other groups camping there as well, we were far enough away to feel we had the entire desert to ourselves. Hamada was great in arranging the trip for us, and was in constant touch to ensure everything was smooth. Mahmoud was the best guide, do ask for him.

          Highly recommende
          We had a great trip as a family with small kids (6 and 8) at the oasis and in the desert. It was tailored to our requests, like: not too much driving, action like sandboarding for the kids. Our guides were excellent and knew their way around, pointed out interesting things and places and did everything for providing a superb camp with excellent cooking. We had a relaxed luxury holiday. Thanks.

          Three days two nights
          A trip to the desert is one of a kind experience and nobody better to organize the trip than safari trips. We stayed one night in the desert which was a memorable experience, the moon like landscape is breathtKing, the sunset colors, the sound less atmosphere, the feeling of the sand in your feet, the feeling of coldness in your skin is something you must experience. The next night we stayed.in Bahariya oases to visit the town, the salt lake, the golden mummies. Everything was perfect... I cant wait to my next desert trip. Thanks Hamada formake it unique.

          Great trip oasis and White desert
          Hi . I just came back from my trip in Egypt. Me and my friend we hade an amazing trip with Hamada Kaddoura really he is a great guide . . In the beginning I was a little worried to go to the desert and I was thinking to cancel the trip because I thought that it could be risky, But there was not enough time and that’s why me and my friend decided to go anyway. And it was the right decision because we enjoyed it very much. We went to all oasis dakhla and kharga and siwa oasis and White desert. But we didn't sleep there but we set camps in another desert near to bahariya oasis . Hamada was very honest with us he told us about everything before we arrived and also we went to siwa oasis it was a very far place like 11hours to get there but it was a very beautiful place . The food is very delicious the people a very kind. Many thanks alot Hamada and we tell our friends ad home to come to experience this trip to and I say to anybody who worries please go it is avery safe and beautiful journey to discover this awesome place in the desert and beautiful civilization.

          Oasis and white desert
          I,ve been with a friend for a week with Hamada, and I would not recommend him The hotels which we stay were the worse that he can choose, for food we went to the cheapest place. He told us that the white desert was close and we couldn’t stay in it. Which was not true. Apart of the desert we went to bahariya, Dakhla and Kharga oasis and he didn’t tell us that one road was close and instead of a car route of 4 hours we have to do 12 hours. He took 4 relatives of him in the car even we told him that was not appropriate. Definitely, the worse guide I ever had in my life.

          great desert expirience
          We recently traveled to the white desert in Egypt. Hamada was our tour guide. He and his nephew Hamada (the driver) made it a wonderful and safe experience. Both now the desert very well. We camped in the desert, visited several local attraction and even traveled to Siwa oasis. We learned that the desert is so much more then just sand. Hamada knows a awful lot about Egyptian history and he can explain things to the detail. Our two sons (15 and 17 yr old) really enjoyed the whole experience. highly recommended if you are in for some thing different and nice to combine with a stay at the beach.

          So happy with the White Desert and Hamada!
          Oh my gosh, what was there not to love?? We originally planned on going with another tour group, but when the prices changed drastically in Egypt, so did their's. We called around and Hamada had the best deal, and I'm SO HAPPY we went with him instead. The food was amazing, it may have been even better for me than the White Desert and Black Desert and Bahariya Oasis...but of course, they were excellent as well! Hamada is so knowledgeable and tailors the tour around your wants and needs. He's really funny and great company overall, and bends over backwards to make sure you are happy. I FULLY recommend going with Hamada, I can't imagine having so much fun with so many beautiful sights, such fantastic food, and at such a good deal with anyone other than him!

          Great and Safe Trip
          Highly recommended tour!!! We had such a wonderful time. Hamada is awesome. He listens to you and your concerns and can tailor a trip to what you want. The food is amazing! Unlike other 2 night tours we spent both nights camping in the desert! I wouldn't hesitate to go with Hamada for a second!

          What a wonderful experience under a stunning Starry Sky
          Hamada was such a great Tour Guide. I was travelling by myself and i could join a Group of Students from all over the world, which was very great. We visited the Black an White Desert by Jeep and the Drivers had very fun to cruise in the Sand, also the Passengers ;-). After a gread Bedouin BBQ everyone could decide how to spend the night. Either in a Tent or just with a blanket in the sand. I have never seen such a stunning Starry Sky! It was just awesome. I highly recommend Hamada and his Team for this experience!

        I had the most incredible experience on the White Desert tour! Unlike many other tours I've been on, this one was led by a knowledgeable local, Hurmada, who truly made the difference.

        What sets this tour apart is that Hurmada grew up in the area, and his deep connection to the local village allowed us to explore all the must-see spots with an insider's perspective. We booked a 2-day, one-night tour and were treated to four delicious home-cooked meals that added a special touch to the adventure.

        But it didn't stop there! Hurmada went above and beyond by offering his assistance throughout our entire Egypt trip. He organized additional excursions for us at local prices, saving us from touristy expenses. We were in constant communication with him during our two-week journey in Egypt, and his extensive knowledge and willingness to help, even at 3 am, made our trip truly exceptional.

        I can't recommend this White Desert tour enough, thanks to Hurmada's warm welcome and unparalleled expertise. It's an experience that goes far beyond the typical tourist excursion and adds a personal touch to your Egyptian adventure.

        With a couple of un-arranged nights at the end of our trip to Eygpt we were recommended to contact Hamada for a private two night desert tour. Flying in from Aswan we were collected by taxi for the 4 hour drive to Bahariya Oasis and met Hamada and Aimn. Departing by 4x4 we drove south into the Black desert where we set up camp for the night. All very well organised and once camp set up Aimn started preparing dinner. The food is fantastic, all fresh and sourced from the oasis. We explored the surrounding area before dinner and sat around the fire afterwards discussing Bedouin culture. A comfortable night under canvas and warm under the camel blankets. We woke to the rising sun, breakfast before de-camping and setting off further south. On route we stopped at a Bedouin village, discovered Crystals in the crystal mountains. Our off road route took us deep into the desert to see the changing views of the desert. Stopping for lunch, again prepared by Aimn at a small oasis surrounded by desert. After lunch we ventured into the white desert, truly spectacular with the wind carved monoliths of white rock. Finding our location to camp, we explored the area with many photo opportunities as the guys set up camp.
        Dinner was delicious as Hamada cooked Duck, Bedouin style over the wood fire. We ate the duck as the full moon rose, spectacular with the moon light lighting the white rocks surrounding us.
        A reasonably comfortable night we rose as the sun came over the horizon to a bitterly cold morning temperature close to freezing. (Bring some warm clothing as desert can be very cold at night) after breakfast we de-camped again we travelled off road through the white desert and back to the black desert to see a particular rock formations that Hamada wanted to show us. We then returned to the start point oasis for lunch, before returning to Cairo.
        Hamada and Aimn are terrific, great fun and very knowledgable about the desert and its environment. If you are looking for a couple nights adventure in a location you have no experience of, I would suggest this tour. Totally 5* recommendation.

        We slept 2 nights at the desert and we enjoyed every second of it. Hamada is a great guide, he has studied to be able to share the most accurate history of egypt and to prodive the best guidance. We slept 2 nights on the white desert and wished we would had time for a third night. It is definetely worth spending 3 nights on the white desert.

        Hamada and his experienced driver chose the most quiet places for the night for us. Thanks to that we could experience the feeling of being alone in the desert.

        His driver was also a great cook and we enjoyed sitting on the fire at night hearing the stories of the locals and hearing Hamada and the driver sing if joy (it was not a pull over act for the tourist).

        We were in November in the desert, the day were sunny but not to hot and the nights were chill but not to cold. Just the perfect weather! We saw one night a stary night and one wild dog.

        This tour was definetely our favourite part of egypt and we hope we can come back one day again.

        My 7 other friends and I did the 2-day and 1 night tour with Hamada. We were a bit worried at first, since the White and Black deserts are remote places, but in the end we were so glad we went through with it. His driver picked us up in our hotel in Cairo and drove us to Bahariya, there we met Hamada, he received us in his home where he served us a traditional and delicious Bedouin lunch in a very comfortable room he has set up for this purpose.

        We then went into the desert in 2 4x4 cars. The views were amazing, he stopped in different places, he brought surf boards and we went down sand dunes - very fun! His drivers went out of their ways to bring us to a natural spring in the middle of the desert. which he knew we wanted to see. We saw an amazing sunset in the White Desert, on top of a hill. He set up a communal open tent for us to sleep, and even set up a small tent for one of our friends who did not want to sleep in the open.

        Hamada and his his drivers cooked us dinner out-of-scratch - an incredible dinner. We hung around by the fire and the campsite, the night was clear and moonless, the Milky Way seemed to have been painted on the sky - the night sky alone was worth the tour. We talked late into the night, listened to music, drank tea, star gazed, and made wishes to the countless shooting stars lol...

        In the morning he made us breakfast and got things ready and started our way back, stopping in a few sites on the way. We stopped at a hot natural spring for a bath before our trip back to Cairo.

        Hamada and his drivers were very professional and caring - I am very grateful to them. We felt very safe. The entire tour was a truly memorable experience. I would definitely recommend the tour - and Hamada is the man to do it with.
