Hard but satisfying trip
Mar. 2020
The trip itself is very difficult: you walk a long distance at night, not sleeping a minute, and it's very cold, and crowded (taking pictures-wise), at the top. And yet it's a worthwhile experience and you get some great views and challenge yourself. In the end you get a short visit to St Catherine Monastery (not much to see there).

The company itself in Dahab doesn't do much - it takes you to the St Catherine Protectorate by a small minibus and brings you back in the morning. Any food, drinks along the way is at your expense. The guide is a local bedouine guide in any case. But they can hook you up with other travelers, and not too much of them, so it's good.

There are many other travel agencies in Dahab but I cannot vouch for them.

amazing experience

dress warm for the top. Gloves are key. There are cafes along the way up the mountain so you can stop and get a coffee. Bring small bills.

Private desert tour/hikeNov 17, 2018--EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE!
Nov. 2018 • Couples
TRIP #1By email with Joseph Nazir & Annet, set up a private 4WD tour with Bedouin guides to St. Catherine's Monastery, then 4WD trip in desert with hike, cooked lunch on desert.
Cost was $400 US for 2 people all day, but worth it. We were picked up about 8, driven to St. Catherine's for 1 1/2 hrs, then off road in the desert & mountains. Stopped in beautiful place, one guide took us on a hike (we are experienced hikers, but were only promised a short hike)--But our guide was willing, we hiked for 3 hours, to the top of a ridge with beautiful views north and south. When we returned, the other guide had prepared a meal, hummus,pita bread, nice salad, 1/4 of a chicken for each of us roasted over a fire he had built. Great food, great experience with Bedouin guides talking about their lifestyle & culture (parents/grandparents nomadic life in this area, now most live in towns, etc.)

An oasis is the Sinai desert.
Apr. 2018 • Friends
A remote home away from home in the middle of the desert. It has a nice view from the balcony, of the Sinai chain of mountains. A peaceful getaway place for prayer and meditation. A resting place after a long and tedious climb of the highest peak of mount Sinai. However no Wi-Fi or electronic gadgets hence ideal for meditation or getaway.
