Join us this Fall in Egypt
Escape the Ordinary with Host Bruce H. Porter
October 16-21, 2016
When is comes to gaining gospel knowledge, it is best have your spiritual feast along with a temporal one. This extensive tour is hosted by Bruce H. Porter.
Discover the land of Moses and visit the Temple Sites in upper Egypt and the Pyramids of Giza. You will never read the scriptures the same as your mind and memory will take you to Egypt and our journeys again and again.

16 Oct Depart USA for Cairo
17 Oct Arrive Cairo - We arrive in the land of the Pharaohs, Jacob, Joseph and Israel during the famine! Upon arrival in Cairo we meet our guide and driver who will transport us to the hotel for dinner and rest for the remainder of the evening. We relax tonight as we prepare for the adventurous travel ahead.
18 Oct Today we travel back to ancient Egypt with a full day of touring to the wonders of the ancient world, some of which date back to 1000+ years prior to Abraham. We spend time at one of the seven wonders of the world- the pyramids. Cheops, with an original height of 496 feet, is the most colossal pyramid ever built. Today, we will also see the Sphinx and tour the Egyptian Museum, location of Tutankhamen's treasures and ancient remains. This evening we will fly to Aswan.
19 Oct Early This morning we transfer to the airport for our flight to Abu Simbel, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments." Our Egyptologist guide discusses the relevance of this spectacular site from Egyptian history. We will also try to put in perspective the long history of Egypt. Here we visit the massive temple of Pharaoh Rameses II, perhaps the greatest builder of temples in ancient Egypt (13th Century BC) and a second one of Queen Nafertari, Rameses's most beloved wife. After visiting Abu Simbel we fly back to the modern city of Aswan. Upon arrival we take time to visit the High Dam, built from 1960 - 1971 and is a major factor in Egypt’s agricultural success. We then also spend time at Philae Temple on the Isi-Island. This complex was moved from up river due to the impending destruction upon the completion of the High Dam. This we will Evening transfer to Luxor
20 Oct This morning we visit the Valley of the Kings (where many ancient pharaohs were buried) and the famous Temple of Hatshepsut, the princess who perhaps pulled baby Moses out of the Nile River. This temple may have been designed by Moses.
We also plan to visit the Temple of Karnak (temple of the New Kingdom period) and the East Bank of the Nile. It was during this period that the bondage and Exodus occurred. Karnak second to Giza’s Pyramids, is one of Egypt’s most important Pharaonic sites. We visit the famous Temple of Luxor, which was founded in the reign of Amenhotep III, grandson of the pharaoh of the Exodus. Late this evening we will fly back to Cairo.
21 Oct After breakfast at the hotel we will go to the Cairo Airport for our flight homeward or on to Israel.
