What people are saying about Sharm el-Sheikh

I did this at 24 weeks pregnant, which is why I chose to ride up on a camel, which cost me $20 USD each way. Turns out I probably way overpaid, as I found out another woman only paid $20 total. Our tour guide told us a fair price was $20-25, and I didn't ask if that meant one way or total - so that is my bad. Riding a camel for that long is incredibly uncomfortable, but I don't think I would have been able to do the hike otherwise being pregnant. The camel will take you up to the top, but then you need to hike the final 750 steps by yourself- what a workout but WOW, the view is amazing! There are about 6 stops on the way up the mountain to buy drinks or snacks. I bought a hot chocolate and ramen noodles at one of the stops. There are also bathrooms along the way - think very primitive latrine, disgustingly dirty, and with no toilet paper or sanitizer or soap. I would definitely advise bringing your own toilet paper and sanitizer- otherwise you will be twerking the pee off like I was.

Overall great experience. The view from top of Mount Sinai at sunrise is really worth it! What to consider before you go: in November, nights are pretty cold, so lots of layers + gloves (optional, but quite useful). Once the sun comes out, on the descend, it will start to get warm and pleasant. There is a looot of idle time, stops at coffee shops (local shops with tea, coffee, snacks), waiting for the right time to do the final climb to catch the sunrise. Do prepare to get up there a bit early to catch a good spot, as it gets crowded. At the last coffee shop you can actually rent a blanket :) The trip: not the highlight, although the road is pretty straight, you'll feel like sleeping all the time anyway (on the way there as it's during night time; on the way back as you'll be tired after trekking). The guide: explains exactly what to expect from the trip, makes sure everyone is ok. There are 2 guides: one for the road trip and Monastery and a second guide for the trekking part.

I been on the top of the Sina mountain. The view from there is breathtaking. I suggest to dont take a lot of things with you only water , chocolates to give you power and warm clothes. Is necessary to have with you a warm clothes, gloves and cap for the top level. About our tour guide Ahmed and the other guide Astra both are very kind and friendly person's. Keep going guy's! Thank you for everything. Unfortunately I didn't like our driver who was very kind guy too but his speak all the time to his phone all the time and drived with one hand from the pickup until the end of the tour. I told him that this is no very safe for all with very kind and friendly way like a joke but his continued to do that. Anyway I hope his understanding!

Super activity, you get what you were promised. Be prepared to receive minimal instruction on how to drive the buggy, but as it's an automatic it's not difficult.

Great tour guide and driver. Most incredible sunrise I've ever seen and the manuscripts in the monastery museum are priceless.
