    See the sun rise over the desert on an unforgettable visit to the place where Moses received the 10 Commandments. You’ll travel in air-conditioned comfort with personal Egyptologist guide, who will accompany you up Moses’ Mountain and take you on a tour of St. Catherine’s Monastery.

    On this sunrise tour you will watch the sun rise over the Sinai Mountains, and retrace the footsteps of Moses when he climbed Mt. Sinai. Note that the descent is not too steep, but there are around 500 steps at the very summit. On your journey back down the mountain you will stop at St. Catherine’s Monastery, built between 527 and 565 A.D. The monastery is believed to have been built around the site of Moses’ Burning Bush.
