You will be picked up from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh at 7:00 PM and then drive for about 2 hours from Sharm to Moses Mountain in a coach.
On arrival you will start the ascent to the top of Mount Sinai. Reaching 2,285 meters, the climb includes about 750 steps, and will take you through the night to finish. On reaching the summit, gaze in awe as the sun rises, flooding the mountain with light.
After seeing the sunrise, you'll descend to St. Catherine's Monastery for breakfast. Saint Catherine's Monastery is on the Sinai Peninsula, at the mouth of a gorge at the foot of Mount Sinai in the city of Saint Catherine in Egypt. The monastery is Orthodox and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This monastery is one of the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world together with the Monastery of Saint Anthony, situated across the Red Sea in the desert south of Cairo, which also lays claim to that title.

Communication with the tour company was spotty at best. Now, I was having phone and WiFi issues but when I contacted them I told them of my concerns and told them how to contact me. I changed my origional date and by doing so, I had to pay an additional $22. I was given a pick up time and while I was waiting and they were 20 minutes late I received a email changing the time to an hour later and at the same time they notified me that St. Katherine’s Monastary would be closed. I can not express my disappointment. Had they notified me sooner I would have kept my original date. The tourtrek up the mountain was good and they did manage to get us on the monastery grounds to see a few sites but we were unable to go in and see the relics. The tour also said we’d stop for breakfast on the way home, which we did not. I am glad I went but I am very disappointed that I had to pay additional money and did not get the full excursion.
