    Problemlose Organisation und Transport. Ein supernetter und interessanter Beduinenführer am Berg. Berg und Kloster sind wirklich faszinierend.

    Was told to be in the lobby at 10pm, was finally picked up at 11 and driver didn’t even know my name. Our guide, Musa, was more of an escort than a guide. He didn’t share anything about history about the mountain and quit before the monastery tour and told us to just go in. Wouldn’t book with this company again

    The Sunrise tour was very disappointing and Not what we expected. It was also dangerous in some Situations. We had further the feeling that we are alone on the trip. The driver didnt inform us about the Next steps and what are we doing for example he forgot to bring us To our Hotel. He noticed That after 1 hour. There was also a very Bad Communication between the Guide and the group. We didnt get necessary advice for the Tour. There was a Long distance between the leader and the last member of the group. He jumped forward and didn’t take Care of the last ones. It was also really dangerous because of the strong wind. The leader doesnt noticed. For that reasons we can’t recommend this tour for other people.

    We travelled with a big group, and did exactly the same tour, but some got it way cheaper. Furthermore, the bus was to full and the tour guide was saying nothing at all. I really want to get value for the amount of money

    Der Fahrer sowie der Guide wahren unglaublich freundlich. Die Tour war sehr schön. Nur die ständigen Angebote der Kamelbesitzer waren gelegentlich recht anstrengend. Aber auch sie versuchen nur zu überleben. Es sei ihnen verziehen. Als alleinreisene Frau habe ich mich permanent sicher und wohl gefühlt.

    I would recommend the private tour, that way you can do it at your own pace and have a nicer car. The view front the top of the mountain is breath taking gorgeous! So worth the time and lack of sleep, make sure you pack extra clothing because it´s freezing at the top of the mountain.

    The monastery was open but not the churches due to covid. We were allowed to enter to see the biblical burning bush. The well were moses met his wife. It was such a beautiful spot. The hike up the mountain took 2 hours. It is not an easy hike and luckily there were a few Bedouin huts open for snacks and drink. The hike is tough as you get close to the top. It is well worth the trip

    Спасибо большое Льву! Нам очень понравилось за три часа мы узнали очень много информации и мест, в которые никогда бы не зашли. Каждый кусочек Москвы имеет свою историю и это здорово , когда есть человек , который вам это расскажет
