Overview

Drive a quad bike into the eastern Sahara Desert on a guided quad bike adventure from Hurghada, then visit a Bedouin village for tea and shisha, and learn about traditional life in the desert. This convenient, 3-hour experience takes advantage of cooler morning hours, and includes round-trip hotel transfer and all necessary equipment.
  • 3-hour quad bike trip from Hurghada
  • Visit a Bedouin village
  • See the desert in the cooler morning hours
  • Try Bedouin tea and shisha
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Safety equipment included
Get an early start on the day with 7:30am pickup at your Hurghada hotel, then travel to the quad bike station in an air-conditioned vehicle. Spend 10 minutes at the station learning the basics of maneuvering your quad bike, then join the desert guides for a trip into the sand.

Drive roughly 12 miles (20 km.), roaring across dunes and opening up the throttle on the flats as the sun climbs above the coastline. When you reach a small Bedouin village, park your bike and explore the community on foot. The Bedouin people are semi-nomadic, with food, traditions, and crafts that are perfectly adapted to the harsh desert environment. Enjoy a glass of ‘welcome tea,’ then take a turn at the shisha pipe while learning about life in the Sahara Desert.

Fire up your bike for the return trip to the quad bike station, retracing your path through the desert. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Hurghada hotel.

For that price it is a decent tour, however it is in total a super uncomfortable tour cause they use the same paths as every tour before which result a super bumpy ride cause there are small waves of sand/dirt on about 80 of the ride. That causes pain on your butt and back all the time. There is no freedom in driving, you have to be in a column with the others all the time or you will get a warning as I did that if you continue you will be sanctioned by removing you from the tour. I asked why dont they use some other paths cause it is huge desert to avoid the bumps but got no answer. The pick up was 35 minutes late. Me and my girlfriend had diarrhea the same night after the tour and we think that it is from the tea or water they served to us on the brake. I cannot say that it is definitely from it but it was our 5th day in Hurgada and no problems with stomach till then.. So maybe better avoid the tea and the water if you decide to take the tour and take your own bottled water. The camel back riding was ok, quite short, just 1,2 mins. In the end I felt sorry I did it cause of the camels-it is quite obvious that camels dont enjoy it, lots of people doing it so they have to go up and back down from kneeling position who knows how many times a day. If you love and respect the animals dont do it, just skip that part and take a selfie with the camel.

very much a fun trip along the desert into a Bedouin village on a quad...a great experience...in the village we were offered to ride a camel but the way they treated the camels to make them kneel down and move around is very questionable with leashes punched thru the nose....

The pick ups were late
When we got to the where the quads were the briefing was a bit slack.
What spoil t the trip more than anything was the quality of the quads most of them had little or no suspension so the ride was very uncomfortable so much to the degree your body was vibrated that much you felt in pain.
I wouldn't recommend this trip endless the bikes were in better order but your not to know that till you get there.

I booked this tour for my 11-year old daughter and I. We drove far out to a bedouin village and had a tiny cup of tea, rode a camel and had the chance to smoke a shisha pipe. It was a good experience for my daughter and I.
Good points: There are more than one assistant who drive with the group so if you get stuck along the way or are not a strong driver, they will drive with you.
Bad points: They only include a helmet for the trip. They insist that you have a scarf and goggles, which they provide - at a cost. You have to pay for everything. Even though they insist on you wearing it, none of them wear it. Also, there are about 3 different people taking photographs of you and trying to sell it to you. This was a bit off-putting because these salesmen are persistent! But if you have the cash, go for it.
Great experience, but they need to clean their goggles and maintain their helmets as they are worn and my strap kept coming loose.

We did the 3 hour desert quad safari with Zoser Travel during our stay in Hurghada 23rd November to 30th November. To be honest, we couldnt fault the trip and we really enjoyed our ride in the dessert. The hotel pick up was spot on time and we were taken to the quad bike centre about 30 minutes from our hotel. We had about 10 minutes of instruction and then allowed to do a test run to see if we were happy with everything. The bikes were all automatic so it was just gas and breaks to master! When you stop at the Bedouin Village there are camel rides which are included in the price but you still need to tip the kids that handle them. There is also tea and shisha if you want it, but we gave that a miss! The trip was obviously bumpy and we were covered from head to toe in sand at the end of the ride. So make sure you have some old clothes to ride in and also remember to take a scarf for your head and face or you will need to buy one from them. You can also buy pictures and DVDs of your ride from them afterwards. Helmets are free but if you want goggles you will need to purchase them at the centre. The staff members were all helpful and pleasant and overall it was excellent value for money. We paid just under 12 each and would recommend it to anyone that fancys doing something a bit different!

Really good,

Excellent value for money, and quite a different experience, including the short camel ride.

Would defiantly recommend getting the video of the trip, it really made us laugh.

The hosts were very helpful and aware of peoples needs and abilities
