3 maal duurder tov de andere aanbieding voor dezelfde bezienswaardigheden maar dat is het zeker waard. Perfecte afspraken rond ophaal aan het hotel. Privé vervoer en begeleiding van begin tot einde, en omdat het een eind rijden is, vonden we dat een zeer goede keuze. Zelfs meerdere stops op aanvraag om foto's te nemen. De rit door de woestijn is fascinerend, en het klooster heeft een prachtige collectie. Een verbazingwekkende verzameling fresco's en boeken in zeer goede staat... te midden de woestijn. Ook Dahab is heel pittoresk, misschien wel het Ibiza van vroeger. Ik had er graag een paar dagen verbleven. De gids was een zeer vriendelijk en bezorgde man, die zelfs, in alle discretie, een donatie deed aan het klooster. Indien men veel informatie wil rond het klooster, dan best zelf eens googelen. Naast elk museumstuk is er wel een goede uitleg. Op het vroege uur was er nog weinig bezoek en hing er een zalig , rustige sfeer. Aanrader.
