We want you to know how much we enjoyed our tour of St. Catherine's Monastery on Thursday. This was due solely to our wonderful guide, Allam, and our excellent driver, Atef. We always felt we were in capable hands and we learned a great deal about Egyptian history and culture. Thank you again for enriching our time here in Sharm el Sheikh.
