    Excellent tour, amazing landscapes and friendly staff. Definitely recommend this tour if you enjoy exploring diverse desert landscapes, sand boarding and star gazing at night next to a fire and camping in the White Desert. Bring a swimsuit to swim in the Oasis hot springs

    Best Tour Ever!
    Risa_W, May 2024
    The food was great, the tour guide was very friendly, and most importantly, THE VIEW!!! the White Desert had so many photogenic rocks. I chose to sleep outside the tent underneath the stars (countless numbers of stars btw!) with a sleeping bag, and I would say it was the best experience in my life! I also did sand boarding which was so much fun! 日本人の方へ!!!ありえない量の星がみえるので、ぜひ参加してみてください!人生で1番と言っていいくらい、最高の経験になりました!

    Very disappointing. Tour owner( lady) is very unprofessional. We spoke about time the driver would get there and the following morning I had to calm to find out if tour was still happening . I waited an hour until the driver finally showed up . Also we didn’t get to see the white desert because four days before that the go st Kent stop issuing permit to camp on the white desert site. Tour owner know but still taking money under false pretense. There should be a note to let the bookers know this. I spend over an hundreds for a crappy tour … I gave B it a : because of the guide were friendly but a 1 for me. This is the third time I have had bad experience with Viator not sure I want to buy tours with you guys again . I can’t be taking these loses..

    Excellent Desert Adventure
    Hannah_A, Mar 2024
    Our recent camping trip with our guide Badr, was an absolute delight from start to finish. His impeccable driving skills ensured a smooth journey through rugged terrain, and his excellent cooking skills left us enjoying every bite. Moreover, he was very kind and allowed us enough time to take photos and enjoy the surrounding area as much as we could. He didn't rush us at all. Highly recommend this trip when in Egypt.
    White desert fun

    The scenery was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed sleeping under the stars. Sleeping bags and thick blankets were very cosy.
    Beautiful desert landscapes

    Magical place!
    Jennifer_F, Jan 2024
    The white desert is a magical place, especially at sunset and sunrise. Lunch and breakfast were simple but good, and dinner was plentiful and delicious. Drumming around the campfire with infinite stars above was so much fun. Drivers were safe and accommodating, booking was easy, and tents were comfortable. Be prepared for no bathroom facility in the desert and bring warm clothes if going during the winter.

    Our family of six spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day traveling around the white and black deserts and it was a once in a lifetime experience. My kids went sand boarding, spent hours picking obsidian and foraging crystals. We were treated to an amazing Xmas Eve dinner inter the stars and woke to an amazing sunrise. We’re so glad we decided to do this experience and our kids made memories for a lifetime!!!
    An treasured overnight stay at the Western Desert of Egypt.
    ShiyamalaDevi_M, Nov 2023
    The tour operator Anas came to my hotel to brief me in person about what can be expected and what needs to be brought along on the eve of the tour though I reached Cairo after my Alexandria tour past 9.30pm and his text messages were very clearly written about the essentials to be brought. This tour was the highlight of my travel to Egypt. It is a shared tour. The Bedouins who were the guide in the desert served the most delicious meal I have ever had in Egypt. Though I am a solo traveller, safety is not an issue with this tour. Anas even texted me while I was still in transit from the desert to Cairo and enquired about how did I find the tour. He made sure I got my change for the entrance fee paid for the White Desert park before I was dropped off at the hotel though it wasn’t a big deal. There are no shower or restroom facilities in the desert. So, come prepared with wet wipes etc. It gets really chilly at night and a good jacket is required. The people in my tour met as strangers in the minivan when we get picked up around Cairo and bid farewell as friends. The bonding among the group was great apart from the picturesque sceneries and a starry naked sky in pitch black darkness filled with hundreds of stars.
    An amazing experience!

    Everything about this trip was fantastic. Fist off they tour operater was in communication with us the whole time making she we new when and where to pick up and drop off. It was super easy and straight forward. The trip was amazing. Our driver to get there was friendly and made a few stops on the long drive to the meeting point. Lunch was good nothing special but decent. We then had a walk though of the rest of the day and the next. We then drove to a hot spring where you can get in and soak. Then to the black desert for a great photo. Next to crystal mountain which was really neat to see l. Finally to the best part the white desert. We made a few stops for looking and pictures and wow amazing l! A definite must see. We stopped to watch the sunset then went to our camping site. We had great fire roasted chicken rice and veg for dinner then sat around the fire with some local music. We chose to sleep under the stars (the best option in my opinion) but you can also choose to have a tent set up. It was not the most comfortable sleep I've ever has but the sleeping bags were super cozy and the stars made it worth while. The next day we saw more of the while desert and stopped at another hot spring. Before we met up and got back in our vans for the long ride home. This is a definite must!
    Absolutely necessary
    Pepe_M, Nov 2023
    Undoubtedly an amazing experience, the white dessert is just mesmerizing, and the sunset and night sky are breathtaking. We also got the chance to try sandboarding, which was super fun. Our driver Imar (I hope I got it right) was great. He took care of everything and made us a delicious dinner. The desert is a bit far away, but it’s definitely worth it, such a unique experience.
    Absolutely amazing!
    Maud_S, Oct 2023
    We absolutely loved this tour, everything was taken care of. Great driver to Bahariya and back and great guide in the desert. We were all alone at all the different stops we made. Our guide Mahmoud was also a very good cook. Unfortunately it was cloudy at sunset time but the sky cleared up later in the evening and we got to see the most beautiful stars to sleep under. At the end we asked to drop us off in Giza instead of Caïro where we were picked up, which was no problem at all. This saved us an Uber ride. I highly recommend this tour with Othman Tours!
    Highly recommend if you have time!
    FANGTZU_L, Oct 2023
    Must do! Absolutely love the experience and our lovely driver Halid who spoke very limited English really tried to make us feel comfortable. Amazing scenery and sleeping under star blanket is a very unique experience.
    So much fun!
    Reese_C, Sep 2023
    Loved sleeping under the stars! Spectacular food and brilliant in person briefing from Anas before trip. Highly recommend
    Great tour
    Shahul_H, Feb 2023
    It was a great tour. Anas coordinated really well and our guide / cook / driver Mahmoud was fantastic. All in all a good trip.
    Yunhe_Y, Dec 2022
    The trip was amazing. Our dessert Mikie was really nice and showed us everything that described in the schedule. We were lucky to see some desert foxes and the milky way. I even saw 4 shooting stars. Mikie is also a good cook. You don't need to consider anything because he will arrange everything for you. Also the tour operator Anas is warm-hearted. If you have any questions, he is always there for you.
    Genial experiencia!
    Irene_R, Oct 2022
    Fantastic experience! The tour is great, perfect organization, beautiful place, and our guide/Driver is amazing!!
    Emozioni e sensazioni uniche
    marco_t, Feb 2024
    È stata un’esperienza fantastica per la mente e per il cuore. Paesaggi che ti entrano nell’anima che la nostra guida Ahmet ci ha fatto scoprire e apprezzare. Ma anche sportivi, con il sand boarding e la scalata delle dune con il 4x4. Il campeggio nel White Desert non può essere descritto ma va vissuto, un senso di quiete e libertà ottimo per meditare e liberarsi dalle tensioni della vita quotidiana. Ottimi anche il pranzo e la cena bbq consumati secondo la tradizione beduina. Eccellente anche il driver Hassan che ha accompagnato me e la mia famiglia, con due ragazzi e una bambina, da Giza e ci ha riportato indietro e che ci ha aiutato ben oltre i suoi compiti a risolvere un guaio causato da un altro operatore. Facendoci da interprete e da supporto prezioso.

    Viaje con mi hijo. Nos encantó. Difícil decidir cuál de los momentos fue más especial. Todo muy bien. Hemos sido atendidos y acompañados a estos sitios maravillosos muy bien. Gracias
    Die weiße Wüste teleportiert dich im Paradies
    Niculai_A, Jan 2024
    Die Reise ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis. Die weiße Wüste ist riesig. Man fühlt sich wie auf einen anderen Planeten. Die Reisebegleiter tun alles, damit sich die Gäste jederzeit wohlfühlen. Das Essen ist sehr gut und wird vor Ort im Zelt vorbereitet. Am Lagerfeuer entspannt man. Nachts schläft man in Doppelzelte, die gut und warm ausgestattet sind.
