    Day trip to canyons I did a tour which included the white canyon, a lunch at a Bedouin Oasis, the mushroom Rock and the colourful canyon as well as some hard riding up and down the dunes in the 4x4. It was a lot of fun. But there is some climbing and hiking involved so wear the right shoes and clothing for the outdoors. It was a 7 hour day trip. Collection from hotel at 8.30 am and return at 4.30 pm. 20USD in total.

    Simply spiritual The monastery was open but not the churches due to covid. We were allowed to enter to see the biblical burning bush. The well were moses met his wife. It was such a beautiful spot. The hike up the mountain took 2 hours. It is not an easy hike and luckily there were a few Bedouin huts open for snacks and drink. The hike is tough as you get close to the top. It is well worth the trip

    My favorite day in Egypt For me, the best day of our trip to Egypt was my visit to Dahab. We dove the Blue Hole first (walk up to the entry which is a shoot down 100ft--incredible), and then we dove the canyons. So beautiful...and definitely worth the long drive. Almost as great was our visit to the town of Dahab. Our dive masters took us to Ali Babas in Dahab for lunch. It was great. Wonderful food ready when we got there, and we sat right by the sea! it was awesome. Loved it, and so glad I went.

    STRAORDINARIO Una visione affascinante con un contorno del terreno che è disastroso, come la strada che vi conduce, abbiamo pensato sia voluta. Caratteristiche le costruzioni e le attività circostanti, ma il mare ha saputo costruire una perla blu da visitare con prudenza, vengono ricordate con lapidi le morti di sub, forse anche esperti che sono morti nel pozzo. Andateci ma comportatevi in modo prudente e cosciente

    S U P E R B E Endroit magique de par la beauté du site. Sans compter que la traversée du Sinaî est tout aussi beau surtout au lever du soleil. Les couleurs sont changeantes tout au long du trajet. Asseyez-vous paisible à la sortie du monastère et admirez le paysage vous serez empreint d'une sérénité (du moins ce fut le cas pour moi). J'ai adoré et referai l'excursion lors de mon prochain séjour à Sharm-El-Sheikh, si les visites sont autorisées (sécurité renforcée tout au long du trajet et lors de l'entrée au monastère, mais pour le bien des touristes et de tout le monde).

    Un paradiso per fare immersioni Una sintesi perfetta di ciò che un subacqueo cerca nella cornice di un'immersione. Un luogo da sogno per immersioni sia facili che più strutturate ed impegnative. Peccato all'entrata il caos dei turisti fai date che accedono al mare talvolta con maleducazione creando una confusione incredibile.
