5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

This was an absolutely incredible experience! Going through the desert and stopping at the Black Desert, Crystal Mountain, Mt. Aqba sp?, and the White Desert.... We spent the night in the White Desert, it was a new moon, and the sky was about as white as it was black due to how clear the sky was, and we could see the Milky Way with our own eyes! Our Bedouin guide setup camp and took care of everything in the desert, cooked a fantastic dinner, and we slept under the stars while catching a number of shooting stars throughout the night. Waking up the next morning, we were served breakfast and saw a few other rock formations in the White Desert. What an incredible experience! Back in Bahariyya, we saw many temples from the Roman period, went to see the salt lake and swam in a pool with water pumped from underground. Also, we got to climb the English Mountain and see the very old remains of an English house that is up there. Our guide was excellent, very warm and friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we wanted. The driver to and from Cairo was also very nice and made our trip there and back very comfortable. Overall, I can't recommend this tour highly enough! We are still in Egypt, having seen the Giza Necropolis and the Cairo Museum, and Luxor's Valley of the Kings including King Tut's mummy and I have to say that spending the night out in the desert under that sky has been the highlight so far. Please don't miss out on this experience!
