Quad biking in Sharm must be the funniest thing we did in Sharm.
Book your trip in one of the many tour-selling-companys you find over all in Sharm.
I think we payed too much for the ride, somewhere between $40-50 for all four of us. But it`s worth it, I promise.
This is a definate. We went at 3.30pm but you can go early morning late afternoon to see the sun set / rise.
It is extremely hot and the sand blows up from the bike infront of you so wear long trousers long sleeved top and you must wear the head scarf they sell you, or you can take one will you and they will put it on tightly to make sure it doesn't come off.
We stopped twice for drinks at Bedouin tents and were offered mint tea.
We participate a safari tour with ATV's in the desert. The tour took more than 2 hours, guides were very helpful and proffessional. We sop by in a Beduin Tent and taste some tea, a small "tea in the desert" experience :)
I higly recommend for everyone to join this experience. But do not forget to take a big napkin to cover your nose and mouth.
I love quad biking - I've been in the jungle of Borneo, the beaches of Penang, the Sugar plantations of The Dominican Republic - and now - the deserts of Sinai. And so far it gets better every time.
Alot of people do this for the first time when they come to Sharm - My Mum was one of them - it's romantic, exciting and a great way to see the desert.
We went with the best. Taba Safari operates from just outside Naama Bay and the guys there are brilliant. They'll drive on two wheels, fly through the black desert nights and make sure everyone has a safe and exhilarating ride. Throw in a stop at The Echo Temple & a glass of tea at a bedouin settlement and you have a perfect trip.
Proof of this is that I went on this trip 5 times. (and would have gone several more if I could)
Tried Quad BIking in Sharm!
Was amazing! Realy enjoyed it!
Booked up in the shopping Centre in Sharm(The small boat within the shoping centre, sadly cant remember the name!).
Cost next to nothin each (8 pounds! )Was a great laugh. Lasted about 4 hours.
Picked us up from the hotel...on the Quad! Took us out into the desert. Camel Rides if you want (at an extra cost) Then of to shout in a canyon to hear your echo!
Then to a beddowin rest place for Tea!
Really good experience and would do it again!
The team who took us were great! Very Friendy and not pushy at all! Just wanted us to enjoy our time!
Got a DVD of the experence for £15! delivered to the hotel the following day!
All in All EXCELENT!!
Quad biking out in the desert! Brilliant fun and very easy to work despite my fear of not being able to drve one solo!
Two hour trip taking in the beautiful sharm sunset and time to shop for tea in a bedoiun hut and meet some of the local nomadic people.
Cheap to do and definitely worth a go!
Quad Biking in the Sinai Desert. Booked this through our hotel and it cost £25 for the two of us (Double Quad). It would have cost more through our tour operator.
We were picked up from our hotel at 6pm and taken to the edge of the desert where we were given our quads. It was not a race, it was fairly leisurely and everybody stayed in a line throughout the journey.
We also stopped at a Beduin Village and were offered a traditional drink of Tea and a water pipe.
It was good fun. Remember to where clothes you don't mind ruining and do not forget your sun glasses. As you will see from our picture you will look a little dirty throughout this trip.
You are provided with a helmet for safety.
If booking in Naama Bay the price was advertised at 25 euros but we felt safer booking through our hotel.
The quad biking is a definite must, the experience was amazing and my son loved it (7 years old) Just make sure you shop around as we were quoted different prices and managed to get if for £20 single and £25 double
We were taken through Naama bay into the mountains and given two double quads, its advisable to wear full clothing and face masks as its SOOO dusty biking through the sand! its a bit strange at first but quite a thrill! you stop in a bedouin tent for some tea also. We were taken to echo mountain where the kids wre encouraged to shout at the top of their lungs to hear the echoes! it was cool!
We also booked this through Sun 'n Fun (see my general tip), It was $35 each for about 2 hours. Make sure to wear long pants and you can get a scarf on the trip to cover your face from the sand. If you are a biker you may find you don't have the ability to really 'ride' but it is fun anyway.
