So yes 6 hours by bus is a lot but at night it passes quickly, but once in front of the pyramids or on the Nile for that matter I recommend the ride you forget all fatigue. Thanks to our guide in the museum thanks also to Mustapha all were helpful. Maybe plan a small snack before leaving to go home because after lunch we were hungry. Top excursion

Wonderful excursion, the weather on the quad was perfect!! I was with my 5 year old child it was great the setting is crazy these red mountains it is just sublime and the nice little camel ride short but nice

Despite a difficult pick-up (you couldn't find the hotel), the quad ride was great and very enjoyable. The return by quad at night = awesome!! The 5 minutes on the dromedary... okay...not necessary!

Excellent experience! Lovely driver with clean car. Ahmad wrote us day before via WhatsApp.
