Quad Biking, Sharm El Sheikh
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.
Must give this a try - great fun - went on a 2 hour sunset trip into the desert -with Sun & Fun Tours, great fun. Wear sunglasses and a scarf to cover your mouth as very dusty. A really memorable experience.
For about $60 us you can hire quad bikes and go out to the egde of the desert and mountains and watch the sunset with your guides. You get to meet some of the nomadic people known as the Bedwin who live out in the desert and have egyption tea with them before watching the sun set.
An evening excursion into the desert on a quad bike is an unmissable experience. You need to take a scarf and sunglasses to cover your face from the dust. The trip takes a couple of hours including a stop off at a Bedouin camp where tea is served. You need a strong constitution to cope with the bouncing around but the experience is truly exhilarating! Highly recommended
If you book in Sharm instead of with your tour rep or hotel you will pay half the price

The prices vary from the hotel prices and if you present yourself at one of the many shops directly. Insist on a small group or even better just yourselves and the guide.
