Day-by-Day Itinerary for "Your Egyptian Past"

CLICK all pictures to ENLARGE.  Use BACK arrow to return to page.

Day 0, Fri., May 12, 2006: For those beginning their tour in New York, USA, our plane leaves NY City on Friday evening, May 12.  Your American Tour Leader, Ruth Shilling, meets the group at JFK airport in New York City and accompanies the group on the flight to Egypt.  We fly direct non-stop from New York city, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Other departure cities in the USA are available as add-on's.  Contact Us for pricing.
Those arriving from places other than New York should plan to arrive in Cairo sometime Friday, May 11 or Saturday, May 12.  We will arrange to have someone greet you at the airport.  We welcome travelers from all countries to join us on these tours.

Sphinx and 2nd PyramidDay 1, Sat., May 12: Midday arrival in Cairo (7 hours ahead of New York time, 2 hours ahead of Greenwich).   We begin with a visit to the Great Sphinx on the Giza Plateau and the Valley Temple.  There are legends of the Sphinx speaking.  Does the Sphinx have a message for you? 
Our 5-star hotel is right near the pyramids. Welcome to Egypt!
Optional:  Sound & Light Show at the Giza pyramids this evening.

Day 2, Sun:  Because it will be quite warm in Egypt this time of year, we will be doing most of our sightseeing in the early part of the day.  Remember the poem, "Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun"?   Midday and afternoon will be spent in the A/C hotels doing the past-life sessions.  Then we will go out again in the late afternoon when it is cooler and life in Egypt begins to pick up again.

Sakkara Step pyramidToday we start with what are considered the oldest sites now available for visiting - the remains of the city of Memphis, capitol of Egypt during the Old Kingdom, and Sakkara, the Necropolis of Memphis. At the Sakkara complex we see the Step Pyramid, the early versions of the Book of the Dead and some interesting tombs (where we see scenes of daily life during the Old Kingdom).  Many also believe that Sakkara was a site of the Ancient Mystery Schools.

This afternoon we have our first past-life session, an orientation with Q&A and a group regression.  Time to record your experience in your journal and relax before dinner.  Visits to a perfumery and a papyrus institute this evening, if you would like.

Lori at Giza Pyramid PanoramaDay 3, Mon:  Today is our big day on the Giza Plateau. We visit the Great Pyramid* (of course!) and the newly re-opened "3rd Pyramid" or "2nd Pyramid, whichever is open that day.  Only two of the three pyramids are open each day, and we will not know until that day which ones it will be. Camel rides for the adventurous. 

* Note:  We are pleased that beginning in 2005, the Egyptian government is again issuing special permits that have allowed us to enter the Great Pyramid with only our small groups.  These permits also allowed us to go inside the Sphinx enclosure - you can touch the Sphinx!  This privilege cannot be guaranteed, but we hope that we will continue to have this special opportunity.

This afternoon there is time to "debrief" after the pyramid experience.  We also begin our sessions for individual people this afternoon.  The other sessions for individuals will be on the coming days, each afternoon.

Luxor Temple Avenue of the SphinxesDay 4, Tues:  We leave Giza/Cairo early this morning for the one-hour flight to Luxor.  Upon arrival in Luxor, our New Kingdom (1550-1070 BC) experiences begin on the East Bank with the Luxor Temple.  Both gently beautiful and full of awesome grandness, this temple was the "Bride of Karnak" during the annual Apet festival.  The avenue of the Sphinxes flanked the processions from one temple to the other.

Next we have a special treat.  The Luxor Museum has a special exhibit room for a cache of statues found in near-perfect condition. They were buried under a courtyard at the Luxor Temple and found only recently during renovations.  There is also a new wing, just opened this year, with an excellent mummy exhibit and a number of splendid artifacts.  Our friend, Rachid, is painstakingly putting together a wall from Tel Amarna (displayed at the Luxor Museum) and each time we visit he has more of it completed.
Our 5-star hotel is right on the Nile.

Karnak, Hypostyle HallDay 5, Wed: The splendors of Karnak are the feast of the day.  Each Pharaoh wanted to leave something impressive at Karnak.  The largest temple complex in Egypt, we see multiple temples, obelisks, great gates and the famous hypostyle hall - unequalled to this day.  Also at Karnak, we visit the fascinating Open Air Museum where we view the Red Chapel of Hatshepsut (Karnak's original Holy of Holies), Senwosret's White Chapel with its famous finely-carved hieroglyphs (Middle Kingdom) and other magnificent pieces.  
For many the visit with the goddess Sekhmet in her chapel will be a highlight.
Optional opportunity:  Sound & Light Show at Karnak in the evening.

Hatshepsut's Temple Deir El Bahari at sunriseDay 6, Thurs: Today we cross to the other side of the Nile.  The river separated the worlds of the East Bank and West Bank.  The west represented the hereafter and is where the dead were buried.  We visit the Mortuary Temple of  Hatshepsut, Deir El Bahari, called "The Most Splendid of All" by the ancient Egyptians.  Hatshepsut's reign was an interesting time in Ancient Egypt and one that many people find a resonance with.

Of course we also visit the famous Valley of the Kings (where King Tutís tomb was found).  There are also a number of other tombs here to visit.

Pillars at Medinet Habu Temple, LuxorWe finish our explorations of the New Kingdom with the last great temple to be built during that period, Medinet Habu.  Second only to Karnak in size, built by Ramesses III on a site that was seeded by a temple built by Hatshepsut at the very beginning of the New Kingdom, it is a fitting way to finish our time in Luxor.  There is a wonderful hall of pillars with colored reliefs of the many gods & goddesses.

As we leave the West Bank of Luxor we see the "Colossi of Memnon," the two large statues of Amenhotep III that still stand, even though their temple was long ago destroyed.  

Philae KioskDay 7, Fri:  We leave Luxor today and drive southward along the Nile to the town of Aswan, where we will stay overnight.  The beautiful Temple of Isis at Philae is situated on an island.  We approach by motorboat and the photo-opís are not to be missed! The last place to practice the ancient Egyptian religion, the Isis Temple was closed in the 6th century by the Emperor Justinian (the same one that built St. Catherineís Monastery at Mount Sinai). It was later used as a Christian church.
It is the perfect place for us to begin to bring our Egypt tour to a close.  You have traveled from north to south, through 3,000 years of history.
  

Ka statue, Cairo Egyptian museum Day 8, Saturday, May 20:  Flight back to Cairo this morning.  Our hotel is right near the airport, which will make things easier tomorrow morning.  Today is our day in downtown Cairo.  We visit the Cairo Egyptian Museum Ė mummies, hundreds of statues and the King Tut collection.  In the evening there will be some time to shop for those last-minute souvenirs at the bazaar.

Day 9 (or day 10 if you left from the USA), Sunday, May 21, 2006:  We are right beside the airport for our morning flights back home.  Or you might like to stay two more days and climb Mount Sinai.  This is a good time of year to do it, because it will be cool on the mountain (not freezing, like it is from November - March). Our Mt. Sinai Extension begins Sunday, May 21, and you fly home on Tuesday, May 23, 2006.  

There may be changes to this itinerary due to circumstances beyond our control.
