Our tour was amazing! Our guide was professional and informative, yet casual enough to have fun with us. The Bedouin community was incredibly welcoming. The entire experience was a highlight for our stay in Egypt. I would recommend to anyone.Reviewed by: Brooke H, December 2010
We had the most fantastic evening thanks to our hugely knowledgeable guide.The Bedouin people were hugely hospitable, the scenery was amazing and the company of my favorite person in the world just finished it off perfectly. I will only ever use viator to book my excursions abroad. Very well organized. Not a single hiccup over 6 excursions!!! Outstanding!!!Reviewed by: Michelle M, October 2010
The view of the stars was amazing !Reviewed by: COLIN C, October 2010
First off, Viator and the tour company they hired provided a great service on this tour. However, there were a few things I did not like:
We paid a much higher rate through viator for a private tour. While we did have our own tour guide, Mohsin, who was fantastic, our "private" tent was really a shared tent separated from the other groups by cushions. To make it more private, our guide kept us at the tents while the other groups used the telescopes. However, doing this meant we missed most of the explanation of the constellations provided by the astrologist.
I still very much enjoyed the tour, but I think I would prefer a less expensive group tour, to the not-so-private tour we received.Reviewed by: Charles, June 2012
The private tour was good as it was just the four of us. We were taken to the meal point and had our own private guide so we weren't subject to waiting with the other coach loads. The problem came when it was time for the star gazing as there were a number of other groups meaning the waiting time for the telescopes was longer and a couple arrived late so we had to wait. The advantage of the private tour was that we were able to leave when we wanted when we heard others complaining about the length of waiting time. I'd suggest smaller groups for this tour. The meal was lovely, the sunset was beautiful and our guide was informative and attentive.Reviewed by: Jenny G, July 2010
