At the beginning of July, I went on a trip to Mount Sinai with my fiancé. Our guardian was Maram. Not everyone was positive about our trip, but it was one of the best adventures of my life. I recommend everyone who is going to the Sinai Peninsula to visit them. We felt safe with the escort of the Police during trip by bus. A night trip, admiring the stars in the desert, small lamps that illuminated the mountain trail for us, is something amazing. Local guides great too. Communication in English was very good with everyone. We reached the top of the mountain a moment before sunrise. After a while, the view was amazing. The trip went without complications. We were provided with a delicacy and water. I recommend that you take comfortable shoes, clothes for a disguise, because as soon as the sun rose, it was very warm. Best regards

An amazing experience!!! The course is a little difficult but with the will and good shoes, it is really worth it. Remember to take warm clothes because it is very cold at altitude. The route is approximately 6km with a good drop. Climbing the stairs is not easy but you have to take your time. The reward is incredible with a sunrise surrounded by magnificent red granite!!!!

very nice experience. Ali is a great guide, it’s been a pleasure going with him. A special mention for Maram, who has been very helpful and nice in WhatsApp

Great trip. Worth every struggles. Met some really amazing people on my tour, couldn’t fault anything from start to finish

Riding a camel, snorkeling and much more. The buggy has dust, so it may be better to mask it.
