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

Accepting in advance the long duration of the journey with a stop halfway through the journey, the activity was unique! Many special stops. The strong point: the Italian guide who was very professional and attentive.

The excursion was beautiful, well organized and great company. My fiancé and I also did diving and for me, which was the first time, it was a unique experience getting the right tips and help.

The transport went very well and the Jordanian guide was excellent and passionate! We had the impression of living in the time of the creation of the temple. It was magical !!!

A magical and very well organized excursion! 2 snorkeling spots, instructors present and an exceptional stop on the white island.
