    The 3.5 hour 2AM trek up Mount Moses was an experience. It's a race against the clock to hike to the top of Mount Sinai before the sunrise..we made it with 10 minutes to spare. That moment is truly an experience. Our guide was more of a sheep herder, with his main obligation to get our 15 people group to the top of the mountain in tact and before sunrise. My future recommendation would be for the guides to explain more of the history of both Mount Sinai and St Catherine's Monastery. Overall, it's a must-see if in the Sinai area!

    Ahmed was a true professional. There was an issue with some of the other tourists cancelling at the last minute, but Ahmed handled the situation perfectly, and managed to still give me the experience I had dreamed of. Thank you!
