We took an overnight camping trip. We arranged the details before arriving in Egypt. The contact was easy, friendly and quick. The trip itself was absolutely fantastic. Islam knows the destert so well! We saw many beautiful places as we traveled throughout the day with many stops to enjoy nature, take photos, and sandboard (!) Everything was perfectly prepared, we felt taken care of, fed with delicious, freshly prepared food by Islam and Saleh, not to mention the wonderful tea brewed on the fire >>>thank you so much:)

And the best thing was the starry nigh 😊We enjoyed the peace of the desert looking at amazing constellations. Unforgettable. For the night in tents we were given very warm sleeping bags and blankets;) It was a unique experience, it's a pity we couldn't stay there longer

We also used White Desert Tour to travel from Luxor to Al-Bawiti (Bahariya Oasis) and from Bahariya to Cairo. We had a very cautious driver who kept reasonable speed. We felt really safe. Everything was perfect – we wholeheartedly recommend White Desert Tour !

Unforgettable experience! Islam and Saleh were super nice and friendly. We have done an overnight trip from cairo to the white desert and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. The places are safe and unique. We had time to visit everything and even got time for some sandboarding. We camped in the desert and they provided us with everything we needed to sleep like a baby, super comfortable. Islam is also an amazing cook!

Superb hospitality and great desert 3D2N tour hosted by achmed and abdullah! Felt safe and taken care of throughout the entire trip. They cook great food and go out of their way to show us places and explain their history to us! We enjoyed the trip very much! 5/5

It was a wonderful and amazing trip with totally different side of Egypt.

Special Thanks for our guide Sam and Salah, who made our trip special by their great hospitality, kindness and care.

The shooting stars would be the highlight of our trip and hardly can we imagine that we made a trip to the desert with starry night in Egypt.

The unique landscspe and temperature made me feel like living in the snow instead of desert.

I would highly recommemd this trip to those who wanna take a break from the ancient side of Egypt. This would definitely be the highlight !

Unforgettable experience in the desert with Islam and his friend Saleh!
We had a full day tour starting early at 6am with pickup from our hotel in Cairo and spent the whole day discovering this amazing part of Egypt : Bahariya, the Black Desert, Crystal Mountain, Aqabat Valley, the old White Desert and new White Desert. Islam managed to squeeze everything in one day and the time spent at each site was perfect. We were not rushed and we were able to take full advantage of each moment. We even had time for some sandboarding and some thrilling dune bashing !
Islam comes from a Bedouin family. The desert is his home and he knows it on the tips of his fingers. He gave us much appreciated information at each location. We felt really safe with him and Saleh.
After an amazing sunset, we had a nice chat with Islam and Saleh while having a delicious dinner prepared by them. The starry sky in the desert at night is just wow! Before leaving, we enjoyed a Bedouin tea around the campfire. We left at around 9pm and Islam knew his way in the desert even in the dark.
We regretted not being able to spend the night there as we had to catch our flight the next day, but if we have the opportunity, we will definitely return to Bahariya and spend a few nights in the desert with them !
We enjoyed sharing this exceptional day with Islam and Saleh who are both lovely persons. If you are willing to have an unforgettable experience, we strongly recommend booking a tour to discover the desert with Islam!!

Went there for a 2 night trip (3 ppl + 2 guides). It was amazing. Islam has a good sense of humor, speaks good English and is very helpful. The landscapes are beautiful and the food is very tasty. There was a good balance between moments when the guide chatted with us and moments when we were alone. Price/quality ratio is good. I recommand this to anyone.

Planning the adventure with Islam was smooth, marked by easy and quick communication, while allowing personal input into the itinerary. The Cairo pickup was punctual with a friendly driver, and during the desert tour, Islam's thorough briefing and rich knowledge of the region's history enriched the experience. His familiarity with the desert, open dialogue at each stop for fine-tuning the tour, and occasional exciting car drifts make this adventure highly recommendable to any traveler. One of the most beautiful and romantic nights we’ve spent anywhere!

Amazing trip to the desert! My partner and I did a 3-day 2-night tour to Bahariya oasis and the black and white deserts. The scenery was amazing and unlike anything we had seen before and Islam was very knowledgeable about the area. The accommodation was nothing luxurious but we liked this a lot-we slept under the stars and Islam and his assistant set up a tent against the 4-wheel drive where we ate meals and relaxed. The food that we had was also delicious! Overall an incredible experience that we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the busy Cairo and wanting to experience something completely different.

The greatest desert tour with 'Islam' within 2 days 1 night. It was private, so you don't need to worry for mixing with other groups. It was also comfortable to pick us up from door to door.
I was able to fully enjoy the desert trip without any anxiety or worry because Islam is a veteran guide and the food were all good as well.
If I have another chance to go to the desert again, no doubt with Islam!
