Quad biking adventure in the pyramids of giza

Quad Biking Adventure at the Pyramids of Giza

It’s time to start an unforgettable adventure of quad biking in the desert, literally right next to the Pyramids of Giza! This activity is definitely one for the bucket list. Join us as the magic of the ancient world meets the excitement of modern-day quad biking, where love, adventure, and breath taking landscapes collide.

From Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo: A Spectacular Journey

Our adventure began in the vibrant coastal city of Sharm El Sheikh, where the Red Sea’s crystal-clear waters meet the golden sands. We set out on a scenic flight to the heart of Egypt, Cairo, eagerly anticipating the awe-inspiring experience awaiting us at the Pyramids of Giza. This is the same flight that Christian had the pleasure of meeting Chewbacca, a man sitting directly behind him, loudly and openly gobbling sweets for over half an hour. With any luck, you won’t have to endure these kinds of activities!

Cairo Arrival

The transition from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo was nothing short of sensory overload. Giza and Cairo’s combined population of around 20 million felt like energetic chaos and still blows my mind to think of now. The odd smell and lingering smog covering the city never seem to dissipate and the driving rules boil down to ‘beep if they get close’, resulting in a constant hum of beeping 24/7, 365. Then, there’s a severe lack of women in any of the local cafes or restaurants…

Quad Biking Extravaganza

After settling in, our guide from Emo Tours Egypt picked us up from our hotel and asked where our scarves were to protect our lungs from the sand. We panicked a little as we hadn’t realised we’d need these and were then taken to a very well positioned shop to be over-charged. Top tip: bring your own scarf! Upon arriving at the quad bike rental, we were geared up and ready to start our adventure.

I was still out-of-action following a shoulder injury (catch up here!), so Christian drove and I hung on with my good arm. Unknown to me, Christian, had a surprise up his sleeve… Midway through our quad biking expedition, against the backdrop of the historic pyramids and during our 5-year anniversary celebration, he got down on one knee and proposed!! The desert air seemed to hold its breath as my knees buckled and I said yes, making this the adventure of a lifetime.

Quad Biking Beside the Pyramids: A Unique Perspective

As we revved our engines, the Pyramids of Giza stood tall in the distance, providing a backdrop like no other. The experience of quad biking in the desert, with the ancient wonders in view, is such a unique and exhilarating way to appreciate the grandeur of the pyramids. We did all we could to embrace the thrill and magnificence of the moment.

Why Quad Biking at the Pyramids of Giza?

Unparalleled Scenery: Quad biking provides a panoramic view of the desert landscape, allowing you to soak in the beauty of the Pyramids of Giza from unique vantage points.
Adventurous Proposal Spots: For those seeking an adrenaline rush and a memorable proposal, quad biking amidst the ancient wonders offers a one-of-a-kind setting that will stay with you forever!
Accessibility for All: Even if you have physical limitations, like my shoulder injury, quad biking can still be enjoyed with the help of a partner, ensuring an inclusive and thrilling experience for all.
Memorable Photo Opportunities: Capture the adventure with stunning photographs of your quad biking experience against the backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Words of Caution

I was not expecting to see so many animals openly mis-treated. This included a de-composing dog at the side of the road on our way to the pyramids, and a perfect camel skeleton resting in the middle of the desert. We did not do and would not recommend endorsing any activity involving animals in Cairo. Camel riding directly next to the pyramids themselves for example is a very popular activity, and one that should be banned in my opinion under current circumstances.

Highly recommended:

In the heart of Egypt, where ancient history meets modern excitement, quad biking next to the Pyramids of Giza is a must-try adventure. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, a history enthusiast, or a romantic soul, this experience promises to be the highlight of your Egyptian escapade. So, gear up, rev your engines, and let the sands of time carry you on a journey through the ages, surrounded by the timeless wonders of the Pyramids of Giza.
