This was my highlight of Sharm El Sheikh. The ATV ride was very nice, an expedition into the desert as the sun was setting. Followed by a short camel ride and tea at a bedoin camp, and then ATV to another bedoin camp with a dance show (no spoilers!) And some buffet food and drinks, shisha, tea. After this the astronomical guide Mahmoud (apologies if I got the name wrong) showed us the stars and was very informative and passionate teaching about cosmology and astronomy. Two telescopes are viewable, one with an incredible close up view of the moon and its craters. The second was trained on Saturn (this depends on the time of the year) and it was an incredible view of the planet and it's rings! Incredible - I had never seen Saturn through a telescope before let alone in such detail - this, and the angle of the planet and of Saturn its rings relative to earth will always stick in my mind. All in all a great experience. One thing I will say is that you should be prepared to have your picture taken and to be asked to pay some substantial sum for them. I ended up laying 28EUR for photos and 3USD for a printed photo that I didn't request. I could use that money now at the end of my trip, however, I must say that the pictures are great :) worth it. A+

ARPI_K, May 2023
The atv ride to and from the different spots was okay. The vehicles are very run down. The show and food were less than okay.
Not recommended.
CarlosRenato_d, May 2023
The hotel pick up started with one hour delay. The quad bikes were very old and in bad conditions. Was an interesting adventure, but I will not do it again...
This felt like rushed industrialised tourism.
Sarah_M, Apr 2023
The dance show was impressive but spoilt by overloud music. The quad ride was not in desert. Overall sadly disappointing
Good experience. Recommended for families
Nati_S, Apr 2023
Overall we had a great time. The transportation from the hotel was hectic, as the driver was really reckless, driving like crazy and super unfriendly. After getting there, Quad biking was entertaining, especially during night time. We also enjoyed the camel ride and the stargazing. Spending time at the Beduwin camp was good. The food was OK although it is expected not to use foam disposable plates and forks. The show had ups and downs- the authentic parts were great, but than other parts were just western dancing with western music, so what’s the point? Staff was mainly helpful.
awesome experience
Oke_A, Mar 2023
quads riding, camel riding, shows and star gazing all awesome. excellent experience. highly recommended.
Does what it says, Highly recommend.
JoaquinMacas, Feb 2023
Highly recommend, siso our tour guide and all his team was very professional. They are locals (i believe) very helpful. I can suggest you to bring the tipical egiptian scarf, sunglases, and a coat even if is sunny trust me later you will needed. Quads, camels, beduin teas, and dinner with show. Was very good and tasty food. You will enjoy. Thanks.

Amazing safari with great guides and amazing surroundings. Remember a jacket or sweater in the winter season.
Good but room for improvement
TaraS, Jan 2023
So many people on this excursion and there were many delays as well. Many of the quad bikes didn’t work that well and for safety reasons. Which I understand we all needed to drive at relatively slow pace. Maybe fewer people, and we can go a bit faster would be more efficient and fun.

Rachael_T, Jan 2023
A prompt pick up from the hotel. Guide was informative and helpful. Just be aware that you will need to tip for everything..camel rides etc. even when you get to the first camp they send round small children to beg which is sad but a way of life I guess. the quad biking was great and well worth it. The evening show isn’t great but they try to entertain you, also the photographers are a pain trying to sell you photos you don’t want.
One detail i did not like.
Luz_I, Dec 2022
Very good communication the guides were all very kind. The food served was delicious. But honestly I wouldnt do this again, because the camels did not seem to be in good condition they screamed a lot and when one was screaming somebody just came to muzzle him which made me very uncomfortable. The way they were held down for people to get on them was by somebody stepping on their leg. I did not enjoy that part at all it was distressing for me to see. I understand it may be cultural so I will not judge but from what I saw I would not do it again or recommend it solely based off that. Everything else was very nice, to be honest but by the end of it I had the images of the distressed camels in my mind and did not fully enjoy the rest of it.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Luz, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and concerns about the trip with us. We always aim to provide an authentic and positive experience with our guests. We are glad that you enjoyed parts of the trip and we will forward your review to our guides but sorry to hear that not all parts of the trip were enjoyable and honestly this is not the first time for us to hear about guests’ concerns regarding the welfare of the camels and we would like to take the time to respond. Please keep in mind that all trips which take place in Sharm El Sheikh in the Sinai Desert are a cooperation between the individual tour company and the indigenous nomadic Bedouin people. This cooperation is regulated by the government to boost the economy of the Bedouin tribe and work for its people. Camels and tent space for the dinner are only rented by us and the activities are handled by local Bedouin people. We try our best to ensure the best standards, but we must also respect the local Bedouin customs and traditions. We understand that for our guests, it may seem that the camels are treated harshly and suffer. However, camels are very tough animals with a wilful disposition and are not fully domesticated like other animals, such as horses or donkeys and so it is necessary for the camels’ handlers to give the camels instructions in ways that the camel can follow otherwise, they may not be able to stop a 500kg camel reacting in such a way as to put a guest in a dangerous situation, such as the camel standing up before the guest is safely sitting on it. Furthermore, a muzzle and reigns are used again to control the animal for the guests’ safety before and during the ride. The camel may bite you. The animal doesn’t become distressed or injured while wearing the safety equipment. We have frequently communicated our guests concerns to the handlers; however it still needs improvement. We want to promote understanding between our guests and the Bedouin people and to support the local economy in Sinai and hope that continuing tourism to the area will boost the economy and improve standards. Kind regards, L.Keating Sharm Wonders Team
Amazing experience
Myra_G, Nov 2022
Buggy riding in the desert was amazing. We rode for a long time, both in daylight and when it was dark which was lots of fun. We also enjoyed the camel rides. Even the food at the camp was yummy. Had a fabulous time.

Crowded and touristy desert playground
Simon_S, Oct 2022
Poor information as to what was going on or how things would work. Our pick up time was changed and moved 20 minutes earlier, just 3 hours before the event started, despite us having confirmed the original pick up time the night before. As we had no internet in our rooms or out in town we did not get the message until we were at the reception to be picked up. The guides were visibly annoyed with us, and kept reminding us we were late for most of the trip, despite the delay not really being our fault. If you expect a feeling of being out in the wild, you will be dissapointed. There are several hundred groups of people on 4x4s going at the same time, just a couple of minutes outside of Sharm, with full view of the city. Feelt like a school day trip. Started with a 4x4 ride for a couple of minutes. No instructions on how the machines worked, or what we where expected to do. Low speed, on roads in a run down sub urb setting. Got to camel camp where we got some water and coffe. Camel ride was about 100 meters out of the camp, and then back again. Camel handlers kept nagging about being tipped during the ride. I have no problem giving tips, and do it generously, but prefer to do it afterwards, as a gratitude for good service. Not because of blackmailing and ruining the experience. Then some more 4x4 to the dinner camp. Food was what you get everywhere on the Sinai peninsula on these kind of activities. Don't expect to be blown away. The show after dinner was a little uninspired. Guy with fire Poi's was the highlight. Other performers felt like school students forced to hold a Zumba class for their class mates. Guides came and tried to coerce us to give them money during dinner. Again, I'm no stranger to tipping, but preferably after a service has been performed, and not under those circumstances. The night ended with being cloudy (only night of our week with clouds), making the star gazing a no go, so we left with the 4x4s back to the starting point a little early. Not the fault of the organizers, but a sad ending to the trip.

The quad part was okay, the camel back ride, the star-spotting and the show were very poor - I would never do the same tour again.

Quad biking good, the rest average
Steve_H, Oct 2022
Quad biking was good although we left after dark after taking forever to pick up people and get to the venue. Would have been good to see the sunset. The camel ride was very short probably 100m - which was actually OK for me but I think some people wanted a reasonable ride. Don’t do this if you want a decent camel ride. The Bedouin dinner was pretty ordinary. All in all we signed for quad biking and that part was good.

Best trip on holiday
Richard_T, Aug 2022
Genuinely an awesome experience. You get to have a long time on the quad bikes (we must have been on them for over an hour). The camel riding was fun and the meal was really really good. I think this is under-priced for the value!!

Good trip, well organised & lots of fun. The only negatives were some of the stops were just a little too long & the camel ride was walking across the path and back again. Take sterling or euros for tips and pics - they will accept Egyptian pounds but prefer other currencies.
