For a start you are not in a jeep and it's not a safari. You go through the dessert in a 4x4, squashed in with at least 6-8 people. The driver likes to speed and at times it felt like we were on a roller coaster. Extremely uncomfortable and left us both with a really sore back and backside. To see the sunset you must climb lots of uneven steps which are steep. The sunset is beautiful though. The time and food with the Beduoin people was amazing and the guide really knowledgeable. Star gazing... you see 2 stars and the moon.

Great night sky in the desert

It’s a nice experience. Mohamed, our guide was very nice. He revealed us a lot of stars . The sunset wasn’t as expected , I don’t know if it’s a normal thing in the desert but there was a haze that prevented us from seeing the sunset. Also I really liked that it wasn’t crowded.

Well organised tour. The keep safari was fun, we enjoyed the camel ride and loved seeing the sun set over the hills. The meal and the Bedouin village was excellent. The star gazing guide was great and made a big effort to explain all the constellation. We got a fantastic view of the moon. There was a lot of waiting around for the camel at the beginning

What a fantastic trip, driver, guide, hosts were amazing. The keep ride was crazy and fun. Watching the sunset was truly beautiful and a moment to treasure. The stars, moon and knowledge of the stars was great, fabulous memories, pictures galore. And the food was authentic and delicious. Go on this trip so worth it

An absolute mismanaged disaster

This had all the makings of a great experience yet was actually the worst trip I’ve experienced anywhere in the world. The trip was advertised as a small group and included pick up from our hotel, so we looked forward to it being personal and fun. The first sign of unscrupulous behaviour was a request to pay an extra 100.le per person for collection from our hotel, I wanted to cancel at that point but the request was made after the cancellation window. I questioned the payment and took it up with ViaTour. The jeep arrived and began picking up passengers from local hotels, 7 people were collected and we expected that was that as the jeep seemed full. From there we were taken to a Mobil gas station and left for 90 minutes whilst Mr Mohamed organised for a couple paying for a private tour to join our jeep. We also met up with another 2 jeeps full of people. From here we were taken to what is basically a quarry! The jeep ride was ok but it soon became miserable again. We arrived at what was supposed to be a Bedouin Camp, and we’re basically left to our own devices for another hour. We also met other Jeeps and now there were around 50 people. Mohamed’s focus was on xan Egyptian party 90% of the time. During this period Mohamed was taking people on the one Camel for a 20 metre walk. This was the ‘Ride a Camel in the desert’ part of the trip! Then we were taken over to a Bedouin lady making traditional bread, at last we thought, some introduction into the Bedouin life but alas not. Mohamed explained the three ingredients of the bread whilst it was cooked. He then held the bread out and allowed people to hold it whilst tearing a section off. Basically you were expected to eat the but the person before you held? We declined! We were then given tea and left again, after an hour we were told to “follow me” and marched up a primitive set of steps, with no safety in mind, to the top of a windswept hill. The dust was atrocious, and similar to that from building MOT. Every time someone’s foot moved you sucked in a lung full of super fine abrasive dust. Mohamed then left everyone to there own devices again. That was the ‘Watch the Sunset’ part. People came down and discussion began about how bad the trip was, at this point we were about 5 hours in. The BBQ was only just being lit and again we were left. As darkness fell a telescope appeared that was more like a toy. He asked everyone to look at …… The Moon! The magnification could be outdone by photographing it with your phone and zooming in. The amount of people present meant this went on for some time. Next was the star Sirius, again nothing to see but it took ages. After this was more sitting around, people were actually asking if the could leave now without eating. Mohamed actually said that the Bedouin people are offended when this happens (take from that it’s a regular occurrence). Eventually the food arrived, by all accounts it was good, we had sore throats and didn’t fancy eating. People ate a small plate then made there way to the driver to demand being taken home. Mohamed popped up and demanded his 100.le or no ride home. Reluctantly and under duress everyone payed. The trip started at 13:40 and we got back at 21:00. Most of that time we were left alone. This trip had all the ingredients and I feel sorry for the Bedouin people for not being properly represented and showcased by Mohamed. People were desperate to learn about their life and culture yet received hardly anything. It was all about ticking boxes rather than a great experience. I emailed Viator regarding the extra 100le and they said they would email Egyptra Travel. Guess what, nothing back!! This trip gets readvertised using different product codes so it makes it hard to track feedback. I would certainly recommend avoiding it, and Egyptra Travel, there are better tours out there from people who care about your experience

Great trip but unlucky with weather
Enid_M

We had a really fun afternoon with my family. Unfortunately we barely saw any stars because of the clouds, but naturally that's something no-one can control. The camel ride, the super fun jeep ride, the walk in the desert and seeing the Bedouin tradition and having a nice dinner made it worthwhile even though it was a cloudy day. And our guide did his best to look for the stars when there was a few seconds/minutes opening through the clouds and he promised to compensate us with some self-made footage about the Moon and other celestial bodies.

Alright, probably nice if the weather is nice

It was a windy and cloudy day and it got very cold already before sunset. Fortunately it cleared up and we got see the moon through a telescope and the guide told us about the constellations. Apart from the stargazing the tour is probably alright when the weather is good. The Bedouin 'village' is basically a farm, the camel ride lasts two minutes and I think the tour could be shorter. We were in a small group and until dinner (without candles, because of the wind I guess) we were basically sitting around, sheltered from the wind, wondering what to do. One couple had paid for a private tour, but they were just mixed in with us. They got a separate car for the drive through the desert to the farm, and a separate meal. They were, understandably, a bit sour.

Very nice

Mahmood was a very good guide, he knows a lot about egypt and the stars. The food was very nice and the star watching was beautiful. The only thing which was disturbing a bit: the trip to the desert with very loud music- I didnt enjoy the music and the speed. It is not a race. I understand that it is bumpy- but still it is possible not to race. Please consider this next time.

Stargazing and Egyptian experience

From start to finish was fantastic. Would highly recommend all the staff made the trip special especially our guide Mahmoud he was awesome. His knowledge was second to none and made the trip the best one I personally have done in Egypt. I would like to be able to give more stars than 5 but unfortunately can not. We has a group could not have asked for any more the perfect way to see and learn about Egyptian culture and history it's gives you so much more than just stargazing A++++++++

An excellent way to escape Hurghada for the evening.

A lovely sunset and evening experience on a Bedouin farm. You get to watch the sunset over the mountains from a ridge, before walking back to the farm to eat dinner by candlelight. Following dinner there is a chance to watch the stars whilst the guide walks you through some of the sights of the night sky. It is worth noting that if you have experienced good dark skies then this may disappoint, it is not far enough from Hurghada to get true dark skies, however it is just about dark enough to see the milky way.

What a beautiful evening! There was so much going on... Starting from the bumpy drive through the desert in a minibus, the camel ride, and the nice setting- I have never seen the stars in more detail in my life before. I can highly recommend this for anyone who is willing to compromise a bit and ready to appreciate the milky way in all its glory :D While I did not see too much through the telescope, the naked eye experience alone was worth it.

We took this star watching tour with my wife and our 2 yo son. The content of the tour was exactly as it was described, but the experience we had exceeded our expectations! The scenery of the sunset in the desert was amazingly beautiful! Camel riding, delicious dinner and friendly staff made the trip so great. The tour guide Mahmood was very knowledgeable and kind. We watched the stars and I was able to take good pictures of the Milky Way. Overall, I can describe it as once in a lifetime experience!

Karla_H

It was a very nice experience to be in the desert and get to know more about Beduins. Everyone was extremely nice and kind to us. The camel ride was amazing and it is a well tendered camel, so it’s different from other available camel rides. The food was great and the star watching very interesting. Definitely recommended.
