My siblings and I just can't get over our desert trip with Mahmoud and Osama! At first, my sister and I were quite worried about the 3D2N trip but those worries were for no reason. The guides took care of us well from the pick up at our accommodation till the end of our trip especially when it started hailing... More

Last April we went for the first time on a 3-day trip to the Black and White Desert with Khaled and Hamouda. That was such a great experience, we had to do it again! We just returned from our second trip now, and once again it was great. For our friends it was their first experience in the desert. They... More

Picked up by Karim, the excellent driver in Cairo; after a 4 hour drive we were welcomed at the home of Khaled; our chauffeur and guide for the coming three days. An excellent lunch was waiting for us. The huge Toyota Landcruiser was ready with all we needed. Only bring some clothes and sun-lotion. Klaled and his team take care... More

When planning for my trip to Egypt, I decided that it would not be complete without a visit to the White Desert. After being unable to contact a tour operator I was already familiar with, I discovered Western Desert Tours thanks to this website. Soon enough, I was in contact with Khaled and arranged for a private desert tour, including... More

Wrote to several tour providers and picked Western Desert Tours due to best price and the friendly emails, nothing pushy or over the top. So we spent 4D/3N in the desert together. It was just us, our jeep, our tent, sand, sky, stars, the vast horizon. Beautiful! Throughout the 4 days we visited the Wadi El Rayan area, Qarun lake,... More

While researching for a trip to the desert we found several options, we decided based on the plan proposed and the frliendly style of the mail exhange. We had a tight schedule so Khaled agreed to send a driver to pick us up from the airport ( most other tour operators denied that, since we arrived a bit later that... More

In our travel-life we met wonderful guides, but Khaled, the owner of Western Desert Tour is simply incomparable! He is very passionate for the desert. His immense knowledge about amazing rock formations, different types of stones, fossils amazed us. The entire desert is like his own home. He took us to various off beat routes & showed the unusual beauty... More

We did a 2 day tour (Crystal Mountain Tour according to their website) with Khaled and Mahmoud, and I must say that it was the best experience we had in Egypt. They were patient, and made us feel comfortable from the very start. It had none of the hassling or hidden prices that tainted the other tourist cities. Instead, we... More

Had a great safari experience with Mahmoud and Osama. They were easy to talk to, fun and took photos of each other with the desert as background as if they had never been there before, such passion for the area. The scenery was fantastic as was the food. Western Desert Tours were great to deal with, and Khaled replied to... More

Holy smokes! I will not even try to sound cool and composed in this review because I simply can not contain my joy and gratitude over having taken this trip of a lifetime. To be honest, I had reservations coming to Egypt in the first place security wise, and when my husband than suggested going to the desert and staying... More
