    Had an absolutely wonderful experience alone
    Oscar_H, Jul 2022
    Personally I would have selected 2 hours instead of 3 hours because I was alone and you ride behind one another and not next to. I had been on a camel 2 other times, but never riding for hours like this. It’s a nice experience and if you never rode a camel, I would recommend it, even if just for an hour. Temperature was a little cool and breezy - I went at 9:45 am which I personally prefer over sunset. I wore sneakers, a workout pants, a t shirt, and a sweater - I was perfectly dressed and liked this time. Most people ride camels in the desert, however, I did enjoy the beach because it’s much closer to get to, and you can experience sand and water. If you’re looking for great photography- for either yourself or your Instagram, then this is the guide for you. I was dressed in the attire of a camel rider which made for great photography and a sense that you are experiencing what riding used to be like. Very pleased with the memories and now I can remember them forever.

    Camel ride at Sunset
    scruffy16, Oct 2019
    My wife and i just completed our camel ride at sunset, the whole trip was very well organized by Mostafa. We were met on time by his assistant who has a taxi waiting for us, and we arrived at the beach where we joined the rest of the riders and we outfitted with clothing for the ride and a bottle of water. During our ride Mostafa took many great pictures with our camera and was very much into this tour as a guide. We stopped for a nice break with tea, and snacks which Mostafa and his guides prepared for us on the sand in a tree area. Back on the camels for a ride along the beach for a ride back to where we started, he took many great memory pictures of us with our camera. After we arrived back he made sure we got in our taxis for our return to the pickup spot and paid the taxi driver again, We would like to thank Mostafa for a great adventure on a lovely well organized tour and his helpers as well, would recommend this tour to anybody.
