What You'll Do
  • Visit one of the two oldest Christian monasteries in continuous use, on the site of the Biblical 'burning bush'
  • Combine and amazing journey into history with breathtaking natural beauty
The Red Sea is a great vacation spot, and Mt. Sinai and St. Catherine's Monastery are only a short drive away. Come and visit the oldest active Christian monastery where Moses received the Ten Commandments.
What to Expect
The incomparable experience of visit to the oldest active Christian monastery are the ingredients you choose from for a tour with an unbeatable combination of history and natural beauty.

Many people connect Mt. Sinai with biblical history, but not so many know that St. Catherine's was built in the 5th century around a 4th-century chapel built on the spot where the BIble says Moses encountered God speaking to him from a burning bush. A frequently photographed bush at the chapel is said to be a direct descendent of the original.

You will leaves Dahab at 08:00 for the 2-hour drive with your driver to St. Catherine’s, located at the foot of Mt. Sinai. There is some question as to whether this or At. Anthony's Monastery south of Cairo, across the Red Sea, is the oldest Christian monastery in continuous use. You return to Dahab around 14:00.
