Situation in Egypt was very critical when we were on holidays there. Due to the riots, it was forbidden to leave hotel from 7pm to 6am. The trip was rescheduled, cancelled, planned again. But King Safari promised me the mount Sinai trip, and they really did it! We left at 5pm from the hotel - the pick-up was a bit late (not the company's fault). We were a nice group of 9 people. The driver was very good, that was a pleasant travel through the fantastic Sinai landscape. We arrive at the parking, were checked by security men, got a guide and started our climb. We climbed the mountain before noon and slept on the top till sunrise! Believe or not, it was only our group with a fantastic Bedouin guide Ahmed there!!! No crowds, no souvenir sellers. Just us, the mountain, the church, the mosque. Unbelievable, fantastic. We descended all the 3750 stairs - incredible views! Unfortunately, the St.Catherine monastery was closed (they said they had not been informed about tourists arrival that day, who know...). I would like to thank the King Safari for this experience, I am happy I choose the King Safari!

Very interesting and gives you a true impression of what the Sinai desert is really like. On our way back from the monastery we were given lunch and also had the opportunity to shop at a discounted price.

It was a great day out. Long drive, but well worth it. Just to have walked on Mount Sinai was a thrill in itself when considering the historical aspect

Before you go off booking tour and safaris here and there please get quotes from a few places - don't leave out King Safari. They are present all over the place and have some great deals. Many people will try and get you to use them but please compare prices - you will be shocked.
We found King to be affordable, organised and professional. Plus no hassle (which is a great plus in Egypt)
