Starting off early in the morning is worth it considering the long drive through the desert to get to St. Catherine. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of St. C and knew where to take all the good photos. There is also shopping involved on this trip of the religious icon store before St. Catherine, as well as essential oil and jewelry at the end of the day. Lunch included was in Dahab and was quite nice although we were only given the choice of chicken.
All in all, this was a very good tour and the guide was great!
