MYSTIC DESERT TOURS

We are an Egyptian-Swiss married couple living in Egypt. We work together with a very experienced desert guide from Bahariya Oasis. Since 2009 we organize different kinds of trips in all Egypt. We carry out all the desert trips ourselves if possible; otherwise we have very experienced and trustable co-workers that carry out the trips. We work together with local people on all our trips. Since 2011 we are part of the Safari Department of the Egyptian travel agency Sahara Egypt. We also organize trips to Cairo, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel but do not carry them out ourselves in general.
