Hi! My Mom and I are considering booking the Jewels of Egypt Tour and I have a couple of quick questions.
I love the idea of climbing Mt. Sinai, but how strenuous is it? My Mom works out 3 days a week for 30 minutes, but she does have a very slight limp due to a disability and I would hate for her to be left out of a group activity. I read that it takes a few hours to climb. Does that include a short rest break every once in awhile?
Also, I've read a few travel blogs where people have taken hot air balloon rides over the Valley of the Kings. I know this isn't a part of the tour, but I was wondering if it is possible to arrange this? My Mom has always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon and, if possible, I would LOVE to surprise her with that. If not, that's ok too! This tour sounds amazing and we are VERY excited about going to Egypt!!!
Thank you in advance!!
