What people are saying about Dahab

The monastery is stunning!! I give 5 stars for that! Sinai is amazing, felt safe although I know most people and governments advise against non essential travel in the Sinai but I did not see anything dangerous, there were a lot of tourists , all went smoothly, My only suggestion is that a) our driver was very good but sometimes drove quite fast ! and i think it should not be that way, b) communication with local partner is a bit tricky, they confirmed my pick up time at 10 pm the previous night, should be 1 or 2 days in advance , I had no access to internet at the Cairo airport and then at the hotel I only had access to wi fi at reception , so I had to keep coming down to check if I got e-mail from them...

1. Take really warm clothes with you. It's very cold up there. 2. You need some extra money. Toilets, by the way, are sufficiently available, but in the typical state, blankets and possibly mattresses cost. You are also harassed by camel herders and other flying traders. 3. You shouldn't take the climb lightly, especially the 750 steps are tough. 4. Don't forget to eat and drink enough as well as the flashlight. You can buy everything on site but it is not cheap. Otherwise you should enjoy the sunrise and the view. Fantastic. The monastery is also worth a visit.

Very Professional staff... the tour guide Ahmed was amazing... even the driver was very kind, helpful and attentive. I feel safe from start to end of the program... worth it! Earl Solo traveler
