A moment rich in emotions during the ascent of Mount Sinai which requires a bit of physical condition. A brilliant guide who shared his passion for history and his knowledge with us. We learned a lot during this whole excursion.

An experience etched in memory. The ascent and descent are far from easy but the scenery is breathtaking. I recommend 100%

Unique experience but be careful it is still a sporty hike which is not suitable for everyone…

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

Very nice experience within the group and very good guide.
