The monastery is stunning!! I give 5 stars for that! Sinai is amazing, felt safe although I know most people and governments advise against non essential travel in the Sinai but I did not see anything dangerous, there were a lot of tourists , all went smoothly, My only suggestion is that a) our driver was very good but sometimes drove quite fast ! and i think it should not be that way, b) communication with local partner is a bit tricky, they confirmed my pick up time at 10 pm the previous night, should be 1 or 2 days in advance , I had no access to internet at the Cairo airport and then at the hotel I only had access to wi fi at reception , so I had to keep coming down to check if I got e-mail from them...

Very punctual. Guide called Amr with important information. He had the detail to study something of our country before picking us up. Very attentive and friendly guide. For us, the monastery, Mount Moises, is of enormous importance and was very beautiful. It's a long trip and the car was small to go back three, but apart from this discomfort, everything was great. In Dahab we went to lunch. The restaurant next to the sea very nice atmosphere and view. Very rich food and very good attention.

There are no words to describe the beauty of the Monastery of Santa Caterina, an intrinsic place of charm and religion, the tour was satisfactory despite the long journey, thanks to our guide in Italian (mr Waleed) who was able to describe us exhaustively the whole. After visiting the monastery, he had lunch in a typical restaurant in Dahab (good) with a wonderful view of the Red Sea and the Arabian coast.

Thanks a lot really great trip, the guide Mr. Amer was so kind, helpful, and made the tour so lovely by his nice explanation, the driver captain Mustafa was so efficient too, greatly appreciate both of them, thanks GetYourGuide for such lovely and nice trip
