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.
amazing and awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
the happiest time for me in ma life really
The trip was first class from beginning to end. The vehicle was roomy, and the guide was excellent. The meal was excellent and the restaurant setting could not have been better, especially as the sun was shining as we sat almost overlooking the sea.
Definitely recommend seeing St Catherine's with a guide. Very busy place with several checkpoints on the way there.
Guide was helpful and informative, monastery was crowded.
What can I say? We got to St. Catherine's, looked at the church and left. That was it. My wife and I were very disappointed. We were then taken to Dahab to "shop" We didn't want to shop, we wanted a tour of the monastary which is what i though we paid for. And our "Egyptologist" was a young man who spoke Emglish and attended some history classes in University. It seems the only history he knew was history according to the Koran or the Egyptian government. I'm also not sure if the police escort we rode with was there to protect us or watch us. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and dropped off again without issue. The driver and vehicle were good.All in all, not a tour I would recommend if you actually want to see the monastary. If you just want to be able to say you were there then it works just fine.
