What people are saying about South Sinai

Everything you will see in the trip description has been done and that in a totally incredible way. You will find the treasures of Egypt trough Alexandria and Cairo with their rich history, trough the pyramids (a dream come true now!) and the best guide i ever met in my life.. You will discover 2 exceptional people in the person of Mark and Mario! Booking this trip was the best decision i made during my time here. (and they are the cheapest on the market by the way) Mario, Mark thank you again for this adventure!

The tour is very nice and very tiring because starting from Sharm El Sheik it is too far by bus. Then, it doesn't depend on the tour, but every 50 Km there is an Egyptian checkpoint. The only negative note was the night on the Nile boat, it was dilapidated.

Guides were great, I felt very safe. My Bedouin guide was amazing. The only thing that was down right horrible was hotel in St Catherine’s- but their food was good
