Full description
On the first day, meet your guide in your hotel lobby and then head to Saint Catherine. On the way, travel under the Suez Canal, a world-famous canal which runs between Africa and Asia. Pass by the Oyun Musa, or Moses Spring, where the prophet found sweet water during the exodus from Egypt. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and your own expense, and finally arrive at the Saint Catherine area. Check-in at the St. Catherine Plaza Hotel and rest for the evening, with dinner included.

At 2:00 AM the following night, you will have an early start to begin your climb to Mount Sinai. Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before you start your climb on the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments, accompanied by a local Bedouin guide. Once you descend, meet your guide who will give you a guided tour of Saint Catherine's Monastery. See the burning bush from Biblical lore. Afterwards, be transferred back to your hotel in Cairo.
