Mt. Sinai

 

3 day tour to Cairo, Mt. Sinai and the Monastery of St. Catherin from Eilat
This tour offers a wealth of Egypt’s most famous sights at great value for money. It includes the famous desert fortress of Saint Catherine’s monastery, Biblical Mount Sinai and the main sightseeing highlights of Cairo listed above.
 
Day 1-  Starting early morning we cross into Egypt and drive through the Sinai desert, here we can choose between visiting  St. Catherine's monastery (not open on Sundays) or taking a scenic 3 hour camel ride*. Before continuing to Cairo by car.
Guests who wish to walk up Mount Sinai for the sunrise leave Israel the night before (around 23:00) and drive straight to Mt. Sinai to hike up the mountain in the early hours, this is a really popular choice with our more energetic visitors**. After sunrise there is a break for breakfast and then a tour of St. Catherine's monastery. We drive to Cairo in time to experience the famous Sound and Light show at the Pyramids and enjoy a Nile cruise dinner or evening meal at the hotel restaurant. Overnight in a Cairo hotel.

Recommendation for the evening:- dinner in one of the excellent local restaurants - 15$ per person (highly recommended)
- Nile Dinner Cruise – 48$ per person
- The Light and Sound Show at the pyramids - 32$ per person (recommended)
- authentic local Egyptian dinner in one of Cairo's good restaurants – 18$ per person (recommended)
