      Accident on mountain, no tour guide to be found all day
      Alexandra_S, Aug 2021
      Neither Viator nor Dahab Day Tours are travel agencies, they are brokers who outsource your contact information to the lowest bidder until a number of people on the ground have been paid and your tour is stripped bare of everything that is actually advertised on the website. This isn't a guided tour, and there is no breakfast. You're just paying a lot of money to get crammed into a microbus and get driven to the site. That's literally it. We had no tour guide all day. We were literally sold to another tour organiser on the side of the road and then just dumped at the entrance to St Cathrine and told to be back around 9am. One of the participants broke her foot on the way down from St Catherine and guess what happened? Because nobody from Dahab Tours or Viator or Beduin Tours (the people we were literally sold to) answered our phone calls or emails, we had to rely on the kindness of the police and of the local camel herders to carry her down to safety and organise an ambulance to the hospital. After hours at the hospital, we had to find a private driver and pay from our own pocket to get back from St Cathrine to Dahab because the 'tour' totally abandoned us. That's what you get when you deal with low grade hustlers and that's exactly what Dahab Tours and Viator are. Don't let the slick layout of this website fool you,, you're better off going on a trip with literally anyone else.

      We are and Viator both official travel agencies. You were booked Moses mount sunrise tour with Viator direct and you paid to them and I paid the same price like all the people were with on the tour. We are Dahab safari tours arranged for you the tour. You had 10 PEOPLE IN THE BUS INCLUDED YOU and your group about 1 man from brazil with 2 women from brazil also 2 Egyptian men 1 woman from America together 2 people from Russia 1 woman from Austria. All of them were booked with Dahab safari tours direct. Except for 1 woman from Austria who was booked directly with her hotel ( El Rayga Camp Dahab ) And because the hotel is not allowed to arrange the tours they called us to take her with our tour We didn't transfer you to another company to arrange the tour. Our guide pick up all the people and he picks up you and he gives you the breakfast and water also Our guide name gameil he was guiding you for the tour the driver brings you to him to start to hike the mount with other people. We can also send you all contact for the rest of the customers who were with you on the tour too and NO one has a problem with the tour.

      真冬の2月に行きました。頂上付近だけ雪が残ってて凄く寒いですが、日本の冬支度で十分です。 ツアー客が何かトラブったのか、聖キャサリン聖堂が飛ばされました。 私は腹減ってて、さっさと戻って欲しかったので別によかったですが、こういうこともあります。 とてつもなく汚いですが頂上付近にもトイレはあります。 ガイドはエジプトの他の観光地みたいにバクシーシを要求したりはせず、親切に対応してくれます。
