About Us

South Sinai Travel
The Start


South Sinai Travel was established with the first tourist operational base in Sharm El Shiekh in 1982, when Sharm El Sheikh was still a relatively undeveloped spot in the Sinai Peninsula. Since then, South Sinai Travel has grown to have operational offices throughout Egypt. Sharm El Sheikh has grown to become the # 1 leisure destination in the area.

They Say About Us


Julia Gray Bailey – USA

    We have been traveling a lot through the country since the war broke out and everywhere we’ve been we have felt comfortable and safe. Our guide has assured us we are ok. It’s a wonderful trip.

      With no sign of any unrest or fear , we enjoyed a fantastic tour of ancient Egypt – pyramids, temples, Nile cruise and felucca sail. Our tour guide, Khaled, was wonderful and his in-depth knowledge of Egyptology made history come alive for us. To walk in the footsteps of Pharaohs and kings and view their amazing construction skills and beautiful artwork was breathtaking. The scale of their endeavors is beyond imagination. All our accommodations were first class, as was food and transportation. This was a trip we will never forget, and we feel very fortunate to have been able to see these Wonders of the ancient world for ourselves.

        Me and my group of eight had such a wonderful and safe time going to Cairo, taking a longboat from the Nile to Luxor , and taking plane rides through Egypt. I cannot thank our tour guide , Mrs Nermeen enough for being such a wonderful host, and MR. Amir for taking care of all the logistics over my 13 days. The staff and tour guide spoke perfect English and help throughout the towns and shopping to get the best price with her Arabic. Mrs Nermeen answered all our questions and assisted on everything we need . She made sure everybody was happy and well taken care of, and the only thing we had to worry about was to have fun.

            “Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time on our trip! The tour company in Egypt treated us like royalty…meeting us practically as we departed the plane and shlepping our luggage and walking us through customs. They always had bottled water available for us. The accommodations were nice. The tour guide was knowledgeable and there was only one other couple, a very nice husband and wife from Utah with whom we got along very well, on our private tour. The people on the cruise ship were friendly and the food was good. The room was comfortable. Thanks again for arranging everything!!!”
