    Bahariya Oasis trip with Mohammad
    Kotaby Bahariya tour organised such a wonderful tour for us. We were family of 4 . Mohammad and Salah gave us the five star experience in the white desert area. We had a camp stay there. These guys have such a wonderful setup for camping right from chairs to sleeping bags and rugs. They prepared the food which was mind blowing both at night and in the morning for breakfast. They carried all the necessary things, no compromise on anything. They showed us many things on the way like black desert, natural springs, white desert, crystal mountains , many rock formations like chicken mushroom.Sunset, sunrise and starry night watching was out of the world. Actually I felt 2 days are very less, should have been for 3-4 days . Mohammad WhatsApp no 00201229897317

    Mohammed and Salah were perfectly organised and the camping was so comfortable. Full service provided with top class spread of food even in the dessert. Views were too good and the guys took a lot of effort to make this experience special. Highly recommend.

    Starry sky in the middle of white Desert
    One of the best experiences in Egypt is to visit the White Desert, camp in the middle of the desert under the stars, sandboard, visit the black Desert and go back with amazing memories. We had the chance to have an authentic camping experiences with zero effort from our end. Our guide was very experienced, he went and beyond to ensure we have a good experience. From tents, chairs, amazing Egyptians breakfast, campfire, to candlelit Bedouin dinner under the stars— the experience was nothing short from being perfect way to welcome in 2024. For this experience I am truly thankful to our guide Mohammed Kotby. If you ever decide to go to Egypt get in touch with him. He not only arranged the white sweet tour for us but also arranged private care transportation and guides in Luxor, Aswan, Cairo. He is well connected and very knowledgeable. You can reach him at +20 122 9897317.

    Magic in the White Desert
    Our family of five embarked on an adventure with Mohamed as our guide on the White Desert Safari, His knowledge of the White Desert was truly impressive as he guided us through the vast expanse of chalk formations. Camping under the stars in the White Desert was a highlight for our family. A Seperate tent for each family, a closed tent for cooking and and open space for dinner along with candles. We had asked him to organize a portable toilet at an extra cost for the elders of my family In conclusion, our White Desert Safari with Mohamed was an amazing journey. Our family cherishes the memories created in the White Desert, you can reach him on his whatsapp number - +201229897317.

We had recently visited Egypt and got in touch with Mohamed Kotaby for the white desert national park tour.

My plan was not to come back to Cairo and instead reach Luxor. Mohamed understood the needs pretty well and arranged everything end to end for our trip.
He promptly enquired about the luggage and stuff we were carrying and then suggested us the type of vehicle to use (In our case it was a minivan as we were travelling with kids and had a lot of luggage)

The driver arrived to pick us up from our stay in Cairo at 6:30 promptly. We reached the Bahariya oasis hotel, where Mohamed met us for the tour. He had arranged for lunch and refreshments in the hotel. We were all vegetarians and that was taken care off very well. While I can't recollect the name of the hotel, it seemed a very good place. The owner/manager was kind and even kept our luggage secured in a separate room.

We then started our trip with Mohamed. He came across as a very good guide and was aware of everything in that part of the world. The whole trip was very well planned. We checked all the views/attractions, took some very memorable pictures and reached the camp site in white desert. He had arranged the camp in the middle of some very interesting natural sculptures. The camp was already set and so we didn't have to wait just for that. This is a big plus.

We had an amazing sunset that evening. The White desert tour should be in everyone's travel plan while visiting Egypt. It's a magical place.

His team lit candles around the campfire area and the whole place looked serene. This was followed by vegetarian dinner and a very nice musical performance by his team.
He even bought camping chairs for us. The tent had sleeping bags and blankets to make you feel comfortable. We started our drive back to Bahariya after Breakfast in the morning. We loved the whole trip and Mohamed's meticulous arrangements were icing on the cake.

I strongly recommend Mohamed Kotaby to anyone who is visiting Egypt and would want to hire a trustworthy guide. He did not overcharge us and also gave the most cost-effective package. I took quotation from multiple guides before deciding to go with Mohamed.

5/5 to both Mohamed Kotaby and the white desert national park tour.

We also used his service for Luxor local tours and that too went flawless.
All the very best to Kotaby and his team.

Giving his contact/WhatsApp number just in case someone needs: +20 1229897317.

Mohammed is a great guide, cook and easy going guy, after 2 hours you feel like you know each other for ages. The car is great. Campsite made by him has everything you wouldn't even think of, all clean, really well organized. Trip to a desert with Mohammed and his lentil soup is something you can't miss! Book at least two nights trip. Tel. No. 00201229897317.

Simply fabulous!! I would like to highly recommend the stay in the desert with Mohammed Kotaby. We -two girls travelled to the White Desert with him in his amazing 4*4 car with the AC, and it was an unbelievable experience! He showed us many different places, cooked a 4- course meal from scratch right there in the camping. He had everything you needed there, even the table and chairs . We were really safe and felt like he was our old friend. Don't hesitate and write a what's up message to Mohammed, you will not regret it. In total, the desert trip was the best that happened to us in Egypt.
