Dear guests,

Please note that the St Catherine trip is controlled by regulations from the Egyptian government. In an effort to help the Bedouin of Sinai, the government assigns Bedouin mountain guides to all tour groups. As a consequence, we do not have control over which guide is assigned to you; the knowledge of English and level of service may differ from guide to guide.

Also, the government assigns drivers to tour groups travelling to St Catherine. As a consequence we have no control over the level of skill or service of the driver. This measure is a result of fierce competition between drivers in Dahab. In order to solve this issue, the drivers now take turns and are assigned the trip one after the other. Whichever office you book with in Dahab, you will always be part of the same group going to St Catherine that particular day. The only way we can control which driver will go with you to St Catherine, is for you to organise a private trip for you or your group with us.

We thank you for your understanding.
