Your pick up time will be at 8:00am (exact details will be confirmed locally) then head to Al Tor City which is 100 kilometers away from Sharm EI Sheikh for about an hour of drive.

In Al Tor you will visit the Greek Orthodox Monastery, built to the orders of Byzantine Emperor Justinian (527-565 AD). The "Martyrs of Raithu" were 43 anchorites slain by nomadic tribes during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. Christian monks fleeing persecutions had been present since the 3rd century. The Monastery of Raithu (today called Monastery of St. George ), as it was known at times, played an important role as supplies were carried off from ships in the old port of Al-Tor, handed to the monks of the Monastery of Raithu and later headed off to the Monastery of St Catherine. The latter was proposed as a UNESCO World Heritage site on November 1, 1994 in the Cultural category.

After that you will drive to Moses Bath or rather Hammam Moussa as it is better known in Arabic, is located in South Sinai's official capital, Al-Tur. It is a wonderful oasis covered in palm trees around a natural hot spring, the water of which is capable of healing wounds especially of diabetic patients, treats the body weakness and regulates the high blood pressure.

Legend says that Moses passed here one day. Wanting to quench his thirst he asked the old lady by the spring if he can have some water to drink, surprisingly she refused. Moses prayed to God to bless the water with therapeutic properties, but never to be potable.

The water is 27 degrees and is beneficial for skin diseases and arthritis because of the high percentage of Magnesium, Sodium and Sulphur.

The feeling you have after bathing can be best described as: You will feel relaxed and feel a tingling sensation on your skin when all the little bubbles stay on it. For days your skin feels more tight and stronger.

Hammam Moussa is surrounded by palm trees and they are currently working on the construction of several guest stays. Today there are thermal baths made around this natural hot spring .On the mountain opposite of Hammam Moussa a terrace has been built, where you will have your lunch and enjoy the view over the city and the sea.

By the afternoon you will get in your coach to drive back to Sharm.
