Wake up to the stunning beauty of the White Desert as the first rays of the sun paint the landscape in shades of gold and orange. After a delicious breakfast, we will proceed to explore this unique and exotic environment.
The White Desert gets its name from the stunning white chalk formations that dot the landscape, resembling giant mushrooms, ice cream cones, and even sculptures created by the hand of nature. You’ll have plenty of time to wander this surreal landscape, take photos, and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
One of the most prominent features of the White Desert is the “Magic Spring”, which is a natural spring that seems to appear miraculously in the middle of the barren desert. I will share with you the local legends and stories surrounding this magical spring as we enjoy its beauty.
We’ll also explore formations known as “Chicken and the Tree” and “Mushroom Rock,” each with its own interesting shape and history. Throughout our journey, I’ll explain the geological processes that shaped these incredible landmarks over millions of years.
As the day progresses, we will enjoy a scenic lunch, allowing you to savor the serenity of the desert. This is also a great time to reflect on your adventures and enjoy the vastness of the desert.
After finishing, we will begin our return trip to Cairo, to bid farewell to the White Desert and Bahariya Oasis. Upon arrival, our representative will transfer you to your hotel in Cairo.

In general, it is often possible to change the travel date, but it may be subject to certain conditions and fees. Airlines, for instance, typically offer options to change flight dates, but they may charge a change fee and any difference in fare. It’s important to review the terms and conditions of your ticket or booking and the policies of the airline or travel agency you booked to understand the options available to you.
Similarly, hotels and other accommodations may have different policies regarding date changes. Some may allow free or low-cost changes if made within a certain time frame, while others may have more restrictive policies or charge a fee for modifications.
To determine whether you can change the travel date and the associated costs or requirements, I recommend contacting the airline, hotel, or travel agency you booked with. They will be able to provide you with accurate and up-to-date information based on your circumstances.
Remember, it’s always a good idea to review the cancellation and change policies before making any travel arrangements to understand your options in case of unforeseen circumstances or changes to your plans.
Travelers often must obtain a visa before entering a foreign country. A visa is an official document issued by the destination government that permits you to enter and stay for a certain period. Some countries have visa waiver agreements with certain nationalities, allowing visitors to enter without a visa for a specified period. However, this exemption usually has limitations, such as the purpose of travel or the length of stay.
It is important to note that visa requirements can change, so checking for updates before making any travel arrangements is recommended. Allow enough time for the visa to be processed, as it can sometimes take several weeks or even months. You can contact us to help you obtain the visa.
To book a tour with us, we require that it be paid at the time of booking. This is the only guarantee for you to book the tour.
You can also pay for the tour with cash at the beginning of the tour.
For multi-day tours, we require a deposit upon approval of the itinerary. The down payment can range from 10% to 100%, depending on the tour and time duration.
Gratuity is not included in any of our packages and vacations and is left to the travelers’ discretion. While it is not obligatory, it holds significant importance to the individuals who provide you with care and services during your travels.
