The pick up and drop off was a little hap hazard but we booked late and they squeezed us in but the rest of the trip was amazing. My 7 year old was cared for the entire time, they took us on the family friendly route and my daughter loved it. Going down a massive slope in a dune buggy will be something we both remember for a very long time. The guide, Ali, was incredibly caring with my daughter and as a parent that’s all you want. After a minute I felt comfortable and safe in the dune buggy but on the quad I personally didn’t feel safe, Ali took my daughter to his quad and he made her feel safe and happy whilst I was very nervous. Ali also went out of his way to make it amazing for my daughter, thank you!. Through the trip we both felt safe and comfortable (except me on a quad but even then Ali helped me gain confidence with it). Only did it yesterday but already recommended it! I would do it again so long as I could stick to the dune buggy! Thank you for an unforgettable experience!.
The tour starts at 4am, you will be picked up at your accomodation. The driver will drive you to the quad location where you will receive info on how to drive a quad bike. You have to wear a protective mask or sunglasses with a scarf to be protected from the sand. If you don't have it, you can rent those for 10 euros and later keep the scarf. The quad ride is breathtaking, you visit a few locations to catch the sunrise and to experience the magic of the desert. After the ride is over, you will be transported back to your accomodation. A new ride will pick you up around 8:30 and take you to the boat location. The boat cruise is awesome (please wear sunscreen), the tourguides Ibrahim and Mogli were especially good. You spend two hours at Giftun Island (Paradise beach), after which you are taken to two snorkeling locations. Between the two snorkeling sessions, you are greeted with a lovely lunch on the boat. At the end, you will be transported back to the accomodation.
We booked this trip and were a bit skeptical about the price at first, and also didn't know whether it would work because we had booked this trip the day before in the evening. We were in front of the hotel at 03:45 and the driver was there with us at the same time. We then drove to the "shop" where 2 guides were waiting for us and after a short briefing we started right away, there were 2 of us + the guide, really cool without other tourists. We drove off straight away, first on the road, then straight in the desert at full throttle through the beach. The sun has just risen at the cliffs. Really a wonderful experience. After about 2.5 hours we drove back again. Our taxi driver has already been waiting for us there for the next trip to Giftun Island. When we arrived on board there was a really good atmosphere, the crew was very friendly, the food was great and we even saw dolphins - an indescribable experience.
Very good quad and buggy tour in the Makadi desert at sunset, on the other hand the tour was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. but it was postponed at the last moment at 5 p.m. and we had to share our buggy together when I thought that we were going to have one each (we had a quad each after the buggy session which lasted 20 min ...) they scrape you tips by giving you change half euro and half Egyptian pound be careful do not take the euro take only the Egyptian pound
A unique experience, brilliant guides, heavenly places, perfect organization and support, enough to make me live one of my most beautiful birthdays. Thank you
