5 star review for Ride Egypt’s Egypt Unscripted tour – “Simply incredible!” – Sarah UK (former equestrian guide at Horizons South Africa)

I had the most wonderful holiday trying out the new “Egypt Unscripted” tour! The specific details of the itinerary (i.e. which exact hotel you are staying in) are kept as a surprise so all you need to do is turn up! Emma, her team and partners worked so hard to provide wonderful accommodation, transport, food and activities each day and took care to incorporate any requests for site seeing that I had. The horses and guides were absolutely superb, we had some incredible out rides to the mountains with lots of opportunities for gallops at the Red Sea – as well as swimming with the horses and beach riding.

In Luxor, the visit to Emma’s stables was so much fun, meeting all the friendly staff, horses and animals there. My horse guided me on some fabulous outrides in Luxor weaving through streets and through the groves of sugar cane and out into the desert to see the tombs.

Finally in Cairo, surprise – my room had a stunning view of the pyramids and sphinx! Riding in Cairo is an experience to behold, all the noise, people, traffic, camels, dogs etc… it’s amazing how well schooled the horses are. We had wonderful gallops in the desert and made our way to a local tea station at the top of a hill overlooking the pyramids.

All in all a fantastic experience. I will be back!
