Program

Day 1 - Travel Day

Arrive in Cairo and transfer to your guest house in Giza, overlooking the Pyramids.

Day 2 - Riding Time: 5-6 hours

Starting with a trail to the majestic Great Pyramids of Giza with your own guide to lead the way on horseback, you’ll enjoy personalized attention on your private tour of these famous symbols of Egypt’s ancient civilization. The Great Pyramids and the Sphinx date back over 3,000 years, while there are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt, the Pyramids of Giza are by far the most famous and are the last of the original Seven Wonders of the World.

Your guide will provide a fascinating introduction to each of the three pyramids: Cheops, Khafre, and Menakaure. You will have free time to enter one of the smaller pyramids while your grooms tend to your horses outside. After visiting the pyramids, you’ll then continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the three pyramids rising from the sands, with the Cairo skyline in the background.

A short ride later will find you standing at the feet of the Sphinx, for thousands of years, the enigmatic symbol of Egypt. The Sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a king and is surrounded in mystery. After a jam-packed morning, take your lunch at a local restaurant, overlooking the pyramids.

After lunch, you will transfer by car to the fabulous stable, right next to Abu Sir. Surrounded by sand dunes, the pyramids of Abu Sir form the necropolis of the 5th dynasty (2494-2345 B.C.). The location is incredible, a bliss to enjoy a moment of peace at the humble ruins and revel in the serene desolation of the surrounding desert, also offering riders a real opportunity to stretch out and fly with the horses.

From Abu Sir, you will ride onto Sakkara Pyramids where in the Old Kingdom, pharaohs were buried within Saqqara’s 11 major pyramids while their subjects were buried in the hundreds of smaller tombs. Most of Saqqara, except for the Step Pyramid, was buried in sand until the mid-19th century, when the great French Egyptologist, Auguste Mariette, uncovered the Serapeum.

Covering a seven-kilometer stretch of the Western Desert, Saqqara, the huge cemetery of ancient Memphis, was an active burial ground for more than 3500 years and is Egypt’s largest archaeological site. In the evening, you will have a short internal flight to Luxor, ideally around 9 p.m. onwards.

Day 3 - Riding Time: 3-4 hours

Wake to the beautiful sound of the prayer call with stunning views of the River Nile from your local guesthouse in Luxor on the West Bank. Your morning starts with a non-riding tour and an introduction to the land of the pharaohs. You’ll visit Valley of the Kings, Tutankhamun, and the temple of Hatshepsut.

After a fabulous morning site seeing, you’ll return to your guesthouse for lunch in an hour or so to relax before you go off again on your second tour of the day but this time, by horseback! The trail ride will show you the real Egypt as you ride through the local villages and sugarcane field, arriving at the famed Habu Temple. Here, you will dismount and while the team tends to your horses, the local guide will take you inside to explore one of the most stunningly preserved temples in Egypt.

After your temple tour, you will take the route via the banana plantations where the horses can open up and fly in the sunset on your ride back to the stable. Dinner will be served at a local restaurant.

Day 4 - Riding Time: 4-5 hours

Rise and shine! It’s a new day and what better way to start it with sunrise views across Valley of the Kings! Today you will have a four-hour trail ride with breakfast included. A chance to see mother nature’s beauty at her best! You will return around 11 a.m. and have a couple of hours to relax and have lunch before you go off again, this time it will be a non-riding tour of the east bank to Karnak temple, the Avenue of the Sphinx, and Luxor Museum. Transfer to Hurghada in the evening by car.

Day 5 - Riding Time: 3-4 hours

Swimming with horses has to be the number one requested trip when visiting the Red Sea. You will be taken to a morning trip through the desert to the beach where you will remove the saddles and swim the tranquil crystal clear water, bareback with your horse before riding back in time for lunch.

After this, you will be off to explore the eastern deserts on quad bikes! The trip starts around 2 p.m. and you’ll zoom through the deserts, meet Ride Egypt's favorite snake man, and have tea with the Bedouins; you’ll enjoy a fast pace drive back in time for sunset, you’ll also get to ride a camel! This is a fun-packed afternoon and a great way to experience many of the multiple adventures of Egypt in just a few short hours.

Your horse riding time will be approximately three to four hours while quad biking will be three hours. You will finish the day with dinner in the desert and a belly dancing show.
