Full description

Start the tour early in the morning with a pick-up from your hotel in Hurghada. Receive assistance from the representative who will take you to the bus to Sharm el Sheikh. When you arrive in Sharm el Sheikh, go to your chalet to check in, take some rest and prepare for the evening tour.
In the evening, visit St. Catherine’s Monastery in South Sinai under Mount Catherine, Egypt’s highest peak. It is said to be the oldest monastery in the world, a major attraction frequented by groups of tourists from all over the world. Start with a visit to the Moses Mountain. Upon arrival, climb Mount Sinai – the sacred site where the prophet Moses received the 10 commandments. Reach 2,285m by climbing 750 steps and strolling through the night. The walk takes about 2-3 hours depending on the group.
Arrive at the top and marvel at the rising sun slowly spreading across the mountains in all its splendor. While gazing at the sunrise, click on great photos or pray if you wish, then start descending again. Remember it takes about 2 hours to reach the bottom. Next, visit St. Catherine’s Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Browse the ancient manuscripts displayed in the library and icons excavated from the Vatican. They are the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world, located in the Sinai Peninsula. Finally, the guide will take you to the ferry that returns to Hurghada.
