Incredible and unforgettable!

This trip with guide Ahmed Hassan was amazing. Just driving through Egyptian province outside of Cairo was so informing in itself in terms of people's lives there. Then we arrived at a village in the desert where a local guy took us to a 4x4 car, and we drove literally through the desert, which was amazing. The Valley of the Whales is incredible, like a planet from Star Wars. Then a stop at a viewpoint over a lake - just splendid. The waterfall was maybe a little less impressive than I had expected, but also nice, and the Valley of the Whales was definitely much more impressive than what I had imagined 😊 The lunch was homemade back in the desert village and it was delicious. So all in all, if you want to experience the desert this is a trip for you and I recommend it. It left me filled with joy, peace and awe. It was all so beautiful in its extraordinary way!

This was a great tour and Mohammed was great. We enjoyed the non-tourist aspect and had a blast off-roading through the desert and the wonderful meal afterwards. Couldn’t have asked for a better first day in Cairo.

A must see in Egypt

It's great to visit also lesser-known areas of Egypt. If Whales Valley would be in the USA, it would probably be among the most visited national parks. Seeing that skeletons in the desert was very unique and overwhelming experience. In Wadi El Rayan area the highlight for me was not the waterfall, but many beautiful lakes surrounded by sand (nice contrast) and Mudawara mountain (great viewpoint). The tour includes very tasty home-made lunch, sand-boarding (If you want to do it) and adrenaline 4x4 drive with breathtaking landscape. Beside obvious top attractions like Abu Simbel, Giza, Luxor etc. I also visited White Desert, Black Desert and other parts of Western Desert, but this trip was definitely the highlight of my vacation in Egypt - not just because of sights themself, but also because of highly professional, inteligent, informative, pleasant and interesting guide, Mr. Amr Samir, who made this tour more than amazing. It was really a perfect day. Thank you, Emo Tours.

Forget about the waterfall. It was more like a weak stream perhaps less than 1 storey high. It was interesting to see locals swimming fully dressed instead of wearing bathing suits. The Valley of the Whales is more interesting. Apart from some bones in a small museum, the nearby barren landscape has more skeletons of whales displayed on the ground clearly marked. I'm surprised no idiots had vandalized them. The rock formations shaped by wind and stuff present a stunning picture. I did not want the tour guide and my friend waiting for me for too long as they stayed behind at the restaurant so I went as far as 11 display. There were apparently 24 altogether. The sun was relentless so a hat is a must. So is sunscreen. On our way back to Cairo we asked our guide about a trip to Alexandria but he was getting impatient with us and at one point asked Yes or no? so I declined his service. A bit pushy I find.

By far the highlight of my trip to Egypt. Not only did I get to walk out into the desert to look at 40 million year old whale skeletons, which is amazing in its own right, I also got to experience riding in a vehicle up dunes to the top of a mesa that overlooked the entire area, sandboarding down the dune and had one of the best lunches I can remember in an amazing camp! While all this is more than enough reason to take this tour, the best memories are the ones I made speaking with my tour guide Walid. Walid is not only extremely knowledgeable in the history of Egypt, he is also someone who brings life to the telling of the regions history, and this is only one of the areas of knowledge that he has extensive knowledge of! One of the best conversations I have had in a long time. Just speaking with him broadened my mind and expanded my appreciation of the world around me. I highly recommend this tour. I give this tour 6 stars out of 5.
