    When I was younger, I used to ride horses. As an adult, I don't own any, but I still enjoy riding. Finding authentic riding experiences during holidays has been a challenge, but this one exceeded all my expectations. The team genuinely cares for their horses, which was crucial for me. Booking with them was effortless, and they followed up afterward. I rode with them in both Luxor and Hurghada, and both experiences were fantastic yet unique. I had a special fondness for Luxor, primarily because of my horse, Big Red. Surprisingly, my husband, who isn't a horse enthusiast, joined me in Hurghada and actually had a great time. I must also commend the exceptional guides.

    As a solo female traveler, I felt completely safe in every location while immersing myself in the authentic experience of Egypt. There were just the right opportunities for capturing photos and exhilarating gallops. From racing on spirited Arabian stallions near the pyramids of Giza to delving deep into the wonders of the Valley of the Kings, each day held something truly extraordinary. Visiting during winter made the heat bearable, and the nights were enchanting without the intrusion of many bugs. Luxor provided serene moments on the Nile and thrilling gallops accompanied by the launch of hot air balloons at dawn. Staying at High as a gave me the luxury of a 5-star hotel with delightful cocktails, mocktails, and captivating beachside views of the Red Sea. Every guide, whether horseback or an archaeologist, was incredibly knowledgeable and deeply passionate about Egypt's rich history, making every story told alongside them unforgettable, just like the photos captured along the way. The food was simply divine and authentically Egyptian, abundant in both spice and quantity, ensuring you'll never go hungry on this journey. I would embark on this trip again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to experienced riders seeking to explore the wonders of Egypt!

    This truly was a trip of a lifetime, and I'm already yearning to return! I adored everything about it—the horses, the people, and the incredible sites steeped in history. Exploring the land on horseback was an unparalleled experience, allowing me to discover areas that most tourists never get the chance to see.
