We chose to do the sunrise walk up Mt Sinai. It was a tough walk but absolutely incredible. Sunrise on the top of Mt Sinai was breathtaking. We visited St Catherine's monastery once we were back down the mountain. It was very beautiful. This is a definite must if visiting this area. Tiring but well worth it.

I went with this company on a day trip to coloured canyon which included snorkelling, camel ride and ATV "desert" safari.
1. We picked the later option of an 8:30 pick up. The night before we were messaged to say 7:20. Very difficult to acheive that.
2. The "guide" sami said no more than 5 words to us until we approached the checkpoint, even then only when pressured to explain what was happening.
3. Sami the "guide" might as well have been called an escort. In the whole time we were with him he gave me one piece of useful information. In the main he was completely disinterested spending most of the time on his phone and smoking every time he was out of the minibus.
4. The venues we stopped at for breaks were disgusting, the toilets unusable.
5. The ATV's were in a terrible condition. In one case the Wheels on the front axle were different sizes. Almost every tyre was bald, in some cases the thread was showing. The only training there was is the brake and there is the accelerator. The leaders rode the ATV's like cowboys. I did not take up the opportunity to risk my life. While we were there one of the riders was taken to hospital in an ambulance. The Desert was a strip of land behind the sea shore.
6. We were accompanied by a photographer the whole day. Every activity was interupted by do this do that. Intrusive unwelcome and unnecessary.
7.One of the tyres on the minbus was almost bald, certainly illagal in Italy and the UK. Several passengers pointed this out, the driver laughed.
8. The driver at several points doubled the speed limit. Most of the time he was exceeding the limit, despite bald tyres. Much of the time he was taking calls on his phone, steering and changing gear with one arm.
What could the company do to improve? Maintain vehicles, install hands free kit in the vehicle, not ideal but the best option. Train the guides. Select better venues to stop. Correct the misinformation on the web site.
What could the Governemt do? Have a licencing body to ensure comapnies like this cannot trade
For your safety, avoid this company.

Sunrise from the summit of Mount Sinai - what a great experience! We booked through King Safari tours in Dahab, the price was good and the trip was well organised. You will need to have a good level of fitness to complete the walk, but there is the option of riding a camel to the beginning of the steps, this takes about 5K off the walking distance but is expensive - £25pp. when we went. Walking up the mountain in the dark is quite an experience, the stars were amazing! Make sure you take a head torch, sturdy footwear and warm clothes for the top, it was very cold. You can hire blankets cheaply from the last tea houses before the summit, we paid 100 Egyptian pounds and one blanket went around us both. You will also need money for the tea houses and tips for your guide and driver. Keep a close eye on the weather forecast to make sure it will be clear and hopefully you will get to see the stunning sunrise.

Very nice tour from Dahab to Sinai mountain and st Catherine monastery. The guide only shows the way to the peak of the mountain but that’s it. Not a single word about the place, story behind it, not even in monastery itself. But very nice guy tho

IT IS A MUST! It was an incroyable experience to climb the mountain at night. It was not difficult, but on the other end, it was not easy either. The views from the top were the rewards. Incredible views and experience. On the negative side, the transportation(~2.5 hours each way) to and from the hotel was not to par. We had 10 people crammed in a mini van.

This trip was recommended to me and it was no disappointment. It was very busy up the mountain but the sunrise was just as beautiful and impressive as everybody told me. The Monastery is the oldest christain monastey in the world with things lke the burning bush if you believe in it

Went 2 days on a quad bike and 3 days by minibus into the desert. It was brilliant! Love this part of Egypt. Kite surf conditions are good, once there was wind. Never expected so many free divers oer here as well! I will be back to do some more adventures
