Went on the multi destination holiday and had the best time combining horses and awesome history. The team looked after us so well from pre-trip (thank you Gemma 😍) during and right up to getting on my flight home (shout out to Irene xx). I rode 4 different horses across the week, all spirited, safe, happy horses in beautiful condition but it’s not a trip for the faint hearted. The guest house in Luxor was gorgeous, especially if you love the family feel over swanky, and just round the corner from the stables, complete with legendary donkey foal Oreo and sweet dogs. What I hadn’t expected was how much fun our guides would make it, yalla yalla Youssef and Tommy, already planning the next trip!

I had a wonderful riding holiday with Ride Egypt recently. I spent 8 days at Cairo, Luxor and Hurghada. Their horses are very well trained, calm and fast, not bothered by the street noises at all. We rode in front of the magnificent pyramids, viewed the colorful rising balloons in Luxor, and galloped in the desert. The horse riding and sightseeing are well balanced, so we had time to visit most of the famous historical sites. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this tour and hope to come back again.

I met Ride Egypt’s team in 2021, have been in Egypt with them 2 times in 2021, and we all became friends since. I now have been able to come back in the beginning of 2024, finally. I trust the whole Ride Egypt’s team 100% : they will make your stay in Egypt unforgettable. Horses are amazing, perfectly treated and taken care of, both in main Ride Egypt’s stables in Luxor and in partner stables around Cairo, Fayoum and Hurghada. Organisation is always perfect, flexible if needed depending on the groups’ mood. The whole staff, and all of the partners working with Ride Egypt will make you smile, laugh and dream during your whole stay, they are amazing people.
Special mention to Emma, the owner of Ride Egypt : she did a job nobody can do. She invented the perfect combination to discover Egypt for horse lovers, and was able to bring the right people all together, making her team and her partnerships around Egypt UNIQUE. I can just say congratulations to her and to all of them. Because this kind of business is also about people !

Tomes, Dunes & Kingdoms - Aswan extension.
A once in a lifetime way to end 2023 & start 2024!
I've spent many years travelling with different riding expeditions across the globe and I can say without doubt that this is one of the best!!!
Egypt has always been a fascination of mine and this trip did not disappoint!!!
Emma & her team have a well designed, adaptable programme which caters for a variety of rides (from fast gallops to local villages) and site seeing.
I found this a perfect way to explore the desert, tombs, temples and local culture. Really getting a 'feel' for the place you are visiting.
The history of Egypt is fascinating & I cannot express the 'awe' of seeing these wonders, the murals & hieroglyphics in person.
The RideEgypt team (from the guides to stable hands, Egyptologists and hosts) are impressive with their exceptional helpfulness, knowledge and respect. Every member consistently demonstrated dedication to the care and well being of the horses.
I absolutely loved each ride as well as the horses selected for me.
My only disappointment is not being able to stay longer & try all the horses!
I cannot thank Emma, Gemma, Saber, the team & my fellow travellers enough for this unique experience and feeling part of the team.
Already missing Egypt & planning to return!

What an amazing trip! It surpassed my wildest expectations! I am still trying to wrap my head around all the things we saw. Cairo, Luxor, Hurghada - all with very different vibes but awesome in their own rights. It was just the right mix of culture and adventure - may it be galloping past the pyramids, across the desert or along the beach. The tour managers who accompanied us were amazing and ensured we had the best experience possible. I had booked for my whole family - and my husband is not really a rider - but ride Egypt made sure there were things for him to do ( like accompanying us to the pyramids via carriage, etc). The accommodations were super nice, the horses were very well taken care of (at Ride Egypt’s main stable as well as the other stables they are working with). The group we went with - amazing! So much laughter, and friendships were made that will last way past this trip!
If you have the faintest interest in Egyptian history and culture and you are looking for a riding adventure - this is the trip to go on. If I could, I would go back immediately!!!!!

My friend and I joined the Palms, Pyramids & Pharaohs trip over new years 2024. And it was a trip of a lifetime! If you want a holiday with a lot happening, great horses, amazing gallops, sightseeing, good food and good people this is the trip for you! I’ve joined many trails and this is one of my best experiences! And it’s affordable compared to many other riding holidays. The size of the group is perfect and the follow up impeccable. The team at Ride Egypt did all they could to make this holiday a memory for a lifetime. I can recommend it to all that want some action filled horse riding and culture in this fascinating country.

A dream holiday, a great adventure, an absolutely once in a lifetime experience.
The organisation, seriousness and compromise conveyed by the owner Emma and her entire team is palpable and admirable. The team of guides are all wonderful, prepared and very professional, they make sure at every step that your experience is unforgettable and safe. Horses? Beautifully balanced and fast like the wind!!! They are in excellent care, very high standard for all the horses I have been lucky enough to ride. Good balance between visits to archaeological sites and very fast gallops in the midst of breathtaking landscapes such as the pyramids of Giza.
As my first solo horseback holiday I am extremely happy and I just have to thank Emma and her entire team for making this holiday an unforgettable experience full of new friends.
I will definitely be back!

I had a great time with Ride Egypt. This trip was action packed and Emma and Gemma kept everything running smoothly. The archeology is wonderful but the Arabian horses are even better. This trip was worth every penny and I am so glad that I went. PS - The guides take great photos at every stop. These horses know how to pose for the camera and Tommy hit every angle.

This definitely was one of the most amazing trips I've ever done and I loved every minute of it!
It was my first trip as solo traveler and I had not been riding for more 15 years prior to the trip, but thanks to Emma's outstanding team I felt absolutely safe during the entire trip. A huge thank you to Saber, Adham, Mohamad, Youssef, Hady and Mido, they all were beyond amazing! Also to Gemma and of course to Emma herself, who did not only organize this whole trip only for me alone (!) (the other participants who were booked canceled shortly prior to the trip), but also checked in with me every day and was beyond helpful when I told her I wanted to extend my stay - I loved my time in Egypt so much that I was not ready to go home yet! :)
She makes you feel home from the first day on and you can clearly see the love and passion she has for her beautiful, and so well-cared horses when you visit her stable in Luxor. She made this trip everything I had hoped for and much more, I will be forever grateful for this unforgettable experience and I will definitely come back! :)

I also absolutely loved Egypt itself, the incredible variety it has to offer and its lovely people, I loved the beautiful, fast arabian horses, the incredible landscapes and places I rode at (starting from the pyramids in Giza, along the Nile in Luxor, through very cute little villages and seeing the hot air baloons start at sunrise, through the magical desert of Fayoum and at the Red Sea in Hurghada) - combined with the perfect amount of cultural program, the most impressive temples and at all times with the best authentic Egyptian food and also the accommodations all were real hidden gems - this trip really was a dream come true!

Thank you so much for everything! <3

My mother and I just got back from the Fairytale Fayoum itinerary and I have to say it was surely the trip of a lifetime. Emma, Saber, Ahmed, and the rest of the boys went out of their way to ensure we had the best possible time in their care.

The horses were all beautiful and appeared well looked after and loved; as a veterinary technician, this was very important to me. They were all in good body condition, sound, fit for their jobs, and happy to be ridden. We were all matched to horses that suited our experience and wants, with the option to switch if desired. I loved every horse I had the opportunity to ride. The riding is for the faint of heart, however. The horses are hot, strong, and fast, so being confident and experienced is required.

The itinerary offered the perfect balance for us between saddle time and sightseeing all the major historical sites Egypt is famous for. That being said, the itinerary is flexible to suit how much you'd like to do of each.

The food was delicious; even my mother who has a more sensitive stomach was able to eat well. The hotels were comfortable, but the highlight was definitely the night we stayed at the Al Moudira palace.

Overall, I would recommend Ride Egypt and Fairytale Fayoum to any experienced riders looking for the experience of a lifetime. You won't regret your time with Ride Egypt.
