At the beginning of July, I went on a trip to Mount Sinai with my fiancé. Our guardian was Maram. Not everyone was positive about our trip, but it was one of the best adventures of my life. I recommend everyone who is going to the Sinai Peninsula to visit them. We felt safe with the escort of the Police during trip by bus. A night trip, admiring the stars in the desert, small lamps that illuminated the mountain trail for us, is something amazing. Local guides great too. Communication in English was very good with everyone. We reached the top of the mountain a moment before sunrise. After a while, the view was amazing. The trip went without complications. We were provided with a delicacy and water. I recommend that you take comfortable shoes, clothes for a disguise, because as soon as the sun rose, it was very warm. Best regards

Great excursion. A little tiring but overall worth it. A special mention to Mohammed who was really helpful and kind as well as professional in his descriptions. A precious guide with excellent Italian who made the excursion more understandable even in the small details. Roberto

Accepting in advance the long duration of the journey with a stop halfway through the journey, the activity was unique! Many special stops. The strong point: the Italian guide who was very professional and attentive.

That was an amazing day!!!! Good and very professional staff, the guide in Jordan was very friendly and kind!!!! I loved the lunch before arriving to Petra! I highly recommend :)

The transport went very well and the Jordanian guide was excellent and passionate! We had the impression of living in the time of the creation of the temple. It was magical !!!
