We had a wonderful experience with this company from the start. They communicated promptly with us and kept us informed. Unfortunately we couldn't visit St Catherine because they closed it last minute. They offered to cancel and refund but we still decided to go. Our guide Mohammed was amazing throughout the walk and especially very helpful during the difficult climb up the 750 steps. He kept us on track for getting back down in time for the early ride back to catch the flight back to Cairo after Nile Air unfortunately changed it. I'm in awe of how he goes up and down all day and night - a wonderful person to meet and know. I want to thank him and wish him and his family a blessed life. I'm so happy to have made it to the top of such an iconic place for all the 3 major religions. I prayed for peace and compassion in the world for all the innocent people suffering due to injustices caused by religion differences, political power, and unnecessary conflicts.
The tour to Mount Moses was the highlight of our stay in Sinai. Our tour was in English, which you could understand very well, because our guide was very educated. He gave us a lot of historical knowledge on the way to the mountain and answered every question. On the mountain we were handed over to our Bedouin guide Khalid, who looked after us very carefully. The ascent in the night was exhausting but easy to manage. Since our group was very fit, we arrived at the mountain very early, where we sat in a Bedouin hut because of the cold. You could buy a blanket for € 3. You can pay with euro coins almost anywhere and I advise everyone to take enough change. At about 6 o'clock we climbed to the mountain, Khalid led us to a place from which we could overlook the valley. A unique experience. Back in the valley, Hussam led us to the monastery, where he again imparted a lot of knowledge to us. We recommend. The stop in Dahab was also great.
1. Take really warm clothes with you. It's very cold up there. 2. You need some extra money. Toilets, by the way, are sufficiently available, but in the typical state, blankets and possibly mattresses cost. You are also harassed by camel herders and other flying traders. 3. You shouldn't take the climb lightly, especially the 750 steps are tough. 4. Don't forget to eat and drink enough as well as the flashlight. You can buy everything on site but it is not cheap. Otherwise you should enjoy the sunrise and the view. Fantastic. The monastery is also worth a visit.
Un rêve devenu réalité. I did not expect such an experience, it was beyond expectation, truly amazing for religious and non religious people, the histoire of Mont Sinai is amazing. We had some little background and explanations. We had the chance to see the sunrise. Totally recommend this activity.
Smooth service,well speaking english guide,recommend!
