Would be a shame not to get to St Catherine's monastery whilst in Sharm El Shiek. The tour length was as expected and the tour of the monastery was informative and interesting. The driver and tour guide were nice and professional. Lunch was great, and their detour to a great local bakery on my recommendation. What we didn't like was the shopping centre where we were invited to listen to a sales pitch to purchase local crafts of papyrus, perfume oils, and jewelry. Most tours have these special shopping trips, but mostly because the tour operators receive a percentage of sales. We didn't appreciate this added part to the trip.
very good tour from a very good company
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.
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.
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.
Well worth a visit. We're glad we did it.
Excellent excursion. Thanks again.
