"Try to get to St Simeon's..." Egypt Off The Beaten Path Tip by Lloydi

Egypt Off The Beaten Path: 250 reviews and 315 photos


Try to get to St Simeon's Monastery which you will find on the west bank nr Aswan.
I travelled there by camel (which is great fun in itself), and the guide at the monastery is a real character (assuming he's still on this mortal earth).
Probably best to speak to local tour operators for information about arranging his - my trot across the desert was part of the package with Explore holidays (<a href='http://www.exploreworldwide.com/tourdetail.jsp?route=destinations&tourskey 561350'>details available here</a>)
