We will pick you up in your Hurghada hotel before sunrise and drive you in Jeep to Mons Claudianus. We will have few stops on the way to enjoy the view of the sun rising or the beauty of the desert.
We will have our breakfast upon reaching the quarry and then start the exploration of the site. Mons Claudianus is situated halfway in between the Red Sea and the river Nile.
