I don't have a bicycleYou can rent from us.
What type of terrain are we riding on?The gravel of the Fayoum Desert Road and the Regional Ring Roadis of very good condition, once we enter both National Parks, the gravel isn't as smooth yet it's quiet comfortable. Our route on Day 1 by the lake of Qaroun will be interrupted by some sand dunes, where we will have to push our bikes just for a few meters.
I smoke cigarettes, would this limit me from completing the 100 km mark?"Smoking definitely affects your health greatly, but it doesn't mean that you can't complete this challenge - On The NS Crossing (1000 km bicycle expedition from Cairo to Shalatin), we get a lot of smokers, and they all complete the full challenge without a worry, they might not perform well on uphills, but this shouldn't refrain you from giving yourself the chance to get on a healthier routine, take this voyage as a step for you to adapt this healthier routine.
Can I bring a pet?Please contact us if you would like to bring your pet, as it will depend on the size of our Voyagers' Pack, and if the pack wouldn't mind. We usually have Gaia our golden Retriever on most of our voyages.
I don't know how to ride a bicycle, and would love to join you on the road"Our NS Crossing Hero "Sama Fikry" didn't know how to ride a bicycle 2 months before the 1000 km expedition, she committed to train herself, and yes she made it :) So start now, and join us as soon as you know how to handle your balance.
This is my first time to cycle for a long distance, I only tried to cycle between 10km & 20 km"Having cycled for 10 or 20 km means that you probably spent an hour or more on the bicycle before, which means that you are well prepared to try out the extra mile. Bear in mind that the bicycle you used might not be as competent as the one you will rent form us, and that the guidance we give on the way will help you ride a lot more efficiently.
Can I bring my kids?Of course you can, there isn't a better reward than sharing these precious moments with your loved ones.
Can I join the trip with my mountain bicycle / hybrid bicycle?You can join this voyage on your mountain bike only if you are an experienced rider, and know what you are doing as the effort exerted to push that heavy piece of equipment is 4 times the effort you would put on our road bikes. So unless you know what you are doing, better to serve yourself the energy by renting our light weight road bikes.
Do I have to train before this voyage?It's always better to be prepared just for you to enjoy a more comfortable ride, but if you don't have the time to train, and can complete 10 km cycling or a 5 km run, then you don't need to worry.
How do I edit or remove the "FAQ title"?"The FAQ title can be adjusted in the settings tab of the App Settings. You can also remove the title by unchecking its checkbox in the settings tab.

A Secluded sandy island with one of the most exquisite coral reefs in the area, right next to where we anchor is a shallow area that can help you walk all the way to the island if you wish this spot is special on so many levels, that you will not want to leave
Otaeit El Deir
in case we are ahead of schedule as the two islands above do take a lot of sailing, this reef will be your last chance of spotting dolphins on your way back to El Gouna.

Terms & Conditions
As Voyagers we will go far and beyond to assure you have the best experience there is. Please make sure you communicate with the team both in the HQ and Onboard any of your concerns on the spot - Meeting your preferences is our team's highest priority.
Below are some cases in which we will need to cancel a trip:
1. Cancellation policy for bad weather
In the case that the weather conditions are extreme, preventing the boat from operating, here are the options we provide:
Offering you an alternative date, the change of date does not imply any reduction or increase in the rate or conditions.
Refunds for bad weather:
In the event that the weather conditions prevent us from operating a safe trip and we can not find an alternative date, we will proceed with a full refund. The refund will be made by bank transfer (excluding the transfer fee).
What would we consider bad weather conditions?
Bad weather conditions are those that either prevent the boat from leaving its base or that avert the boat trip from being carried out with full guarantees of safety and a fair level of comfort for our customers. Please remember that you are booking a sailing adventure in the outdoors - an extreme condition is implied on what puts you in danger, and not necessarily what might be slightly uncomfortable.
Examples of bad weather conditions:
Strong wind forecast with speeds exceeding 20 knots (37 km/h)
Examples of weather conditions that are NOT bad:
A "Too Hot" and/or a "No Wind" Condition get uncomfortable specially when combined. This isn't considered extreme as you can definitely still enjoy your time in the water.
2. Policy for cancellations by the client
In the event that the client, due to any circumstances, including unexpected and uncontrollable situations, could not carry on with the booked excursion, or the rental, client would lose partial or the total amount paid depending on the following:
Cancelling 2 or more weeks before the date booked. 70% of the payment will be refunded
Cancelling within 14 days before the date booked, no refund applies
In the event that the client has several boats hired and for any type of cause the number of passengers is less than expected, the customer will not be entitled to any refund, nor reduction in the total price of all reserved boats.
3. Change of date
We know how hard it is to organize a trip with friends and have them all abide by the schedule.
Any changes of date confirmed more than 14 days in advance will be charge-free only once. However, if this change is requested within 10 to 14 days, a surcharge of 30% will be deducted. If the change of the date happens within 10 days before departure, a no refund is applied.
