Hey folks and fellow travel peeps! Wanted to take a section of my site and share with you my experience, thoughts and opinion on this amazing, truly wonderful tour I took while on my Egypt trip. The sites of the Pyramids, and the Giza Plateau on this quad bike tour will truly amaze you.
To begin, the Quad tour takes you through the desert area around the Pyramids and outside the Giza area called the desert of Giza. Appropriate enough! The tour will go on as the sun sets and the sun setting in the backdrop of the Pyramids and Giza itself will astound you. Also, this is an area where no cars and tour buses go so you will feel as if you are almost alone out there w/ the Giza Pyramids in the background.
I elected, along with my travel mate, to book this tour through the tour company we used for the overall trip, Memphis Tours. I have included a link to their site on this tour through the Giza Plateau. See below:
The tour guide suggested we didn’t need to bring any scarves with us but we did anyway. And thank g-d we did, the sand was a lot but added to the adventure. I wrapped the scarf around my mouth area and that proved beneficial as you will not want to “eat” sand while go through the Giza area.
Next, the overall operation of the bikes themselves are very very easy. Before you leave, they provide you with a bottle of water, I would bring a back pack as my water fell off the bike, and it gets dry out there. Also, the tour included that a guide as well as driver from the tour company is with you at all times along the way.
The guides we had were friendly, helpful, and made the best of our time out there. Now, as I am never one to follow rules, you will want to exercise precaution while traveling around cause it is the desert and the bikes can go fast…but here is what I did:
I would always be in the back of the group, go slower which then allowed me speed up really fast. It was AWESOME. So, this trip and tour comes HIGHLY recommended and again, this is truly one UNIQUE way of enjoying the views of the Giza Plateau like no other.
If you need any other suggestions, or would like more information, let me now. Enjoy!
And as always folks, remember, “ordinary people can travel to extra ordinary places”….
