Tour Description

Some years ago a team of scientists travelled to Egypt to prove that elusive border between science and mysticism. Their task was to measure the energy of temples and figure out whether it comes from the buildings, the people or a combination of both. The results were surprising in that places such as the pyramids, and temples such as Edfu and Luxor, generated an output of energy as large as that created by a group of people in deep meditation. But when people and temples combined, the readings were remarkable.

This is why I've designed a tour of Egypt's temples that differs from others, one that gives you time to wonder and wander. Because when it comes to these ancient sacred places there's a point where talking ceases and experience must take over. And Egypt's temples need to be experienced if they are to be understood in their original context. Like a sheet of blotting paper, one needs to soak up their energy.

We cross the Giza plateau, approaching the pyramids by camel

So in this adventure we'll be walking in the footsteps of the gods who set up the foundation of the present temples over 12,000 years ago – an elite group of sages and magicians who returned after a global flood to resume an impressive temple-building culture. What drove their vision that led to the legacy we have today?

Bent Pyramid
The Bent Pyramid and its cunningly hidden geometry depicting human DNA and the motion of the Earth 

Among the plethora of goodies, we'll look at how restricted chambers such as those of Thutmosis III and Unas were designed for the highest initiation experience; the secrets of creating a portal written on Edfu's walls; the entry into the Otherworld at Saqqara; and what was really sealed in those 100-ton granite boxes inside the Serapeum?

Osirion
The Osirion, a megalithic chamber over 9000 yrs old, where the resurrection mysteries of Osiris were practiced

We'll also gain special access inside two pyramids to experience the actual path once taken by initiates, and if permitted, a damn good meditation inside the mis-named Kings Chamber. Where you will certainly wander and wonder.

You will be driven from Cairo airport to the palatial Mena House Hotel where you will be welcomed with a drink and stunning views of the Great Pyramids. The remainder of your day is for relaxing and re-energizing.

(Overnight in Cairo at the Mena House Hotel or similar)

Mena House Hotel in Egypt

Start the day correctly, with a visit to the Sphinx enclosure and the Valley Temple, an austere and megalithic complex used as a preparatory area for the pyramids. After lunch in the desert overlooking the pyramids, a camel ride across the Giza plateau takes us to the Pyramid of Menkaure, the one that attracts the least attention and thus the repository of perhaps the biggest secret of the entire complex. Finish with a crawl into Khafre’s pyramid. Return to hotel for an evening at leisure.

(Overnight in Cairo at the Mena House Hotel or similar)

Camel Rides in Egypt

A bus ride to Saqqara, and short descend into the Pyramid of Unas, one of the best-preserved initiation chambers and home to the oldest texts outlining the process for accessing the Otherworld (and returning). We will then explore the mysterious underground Serapeum featuring 100-ton monolithic granite boxes of exquisite craftsmanship, once used to protect something very precious. After lunch we enter Saqqara proper, a vast site named for the god of rebirth, and home to the majestic step pyramid of Djoser, with free time to ponder over the day's events. Return to hotel, with an optional side excursion to the perfume house.

(Overnight in Cairo at the Mena House Hotel or similar)

Saqqara Egypt

We travel to Dahshur and enter the deep shafts of the elegant Bent Pyramid and its cunning geometry. Because we are gluttons for punishment we then descend into the interior passages of the adjacent Red Pyramid, which has the largest base of any pyramid in Egypt.

After a late lunch we depart Cairo Airport for our flight to Luxor.

(Overnight in Luxor at the Winter Palace Hotel or similar)

Dahshur Egypt

Morning is for exploring the sprawling open air Karnak complex, the axis mundi of Egyptian religious culture and the cult of Amun, with each pharaoh adding to or altering the site over thousands of years. It is a place for getting lost, but not before we try to get private access into the chapel of Ptah and Sekmet, as well as one of the most perfect buildings in the world, the chapel of Senwosret.

After lunch we take it easy: worship Ra in the Winter Palace’s formal garden and pool. Or the best gold and silver jewelry store, where your art of bartering will be sorely tested. We gather at twilight to visit Luxor Temple, best experienced when lit. Luxor encodes proportions derived from nature’s mathematics, hence why it looks and feels perfect.

After a day of exploration, you can unwind with a delightful dinner at the Winter Palace or opt for a quick visit to the charming Luxor Museum. The museum, although small, offers a rich collection, including the captivating busts of Akhenaten and the exquisite art of Amarna, making it a worthwhile stop for any enthusiast.

Luxor Temple in Egypt

A bus across the desert takes us to Abydos. After lunch and a swim, we spend the rest of the afternoon in the temple of Seti I to do personal work among the various frescoed chambers dedicated to the gods and their respective teachings. The highlight is a rare, two-hour private access into the Osirion, a megalithic chamber over 11000 years old, once mistaken for being underground, where the 17 Ways of the Gods were taught.

A five-minute walk returns us to the hotel for dinner, and to smoke shisha by the pool and relax.

(Overnight in Abydos at the House of Life Hotel or similar)

Osirion Egypt

We drive to Dendera, or Enet Ta Neter, the House of the God, and eat a packed lunch in the shade. In addition to the beautifully preserved frescoes, astronomical ceilings and Hathor pillars is a replica of the spiral zodiac, unique in that it is centered on the Age of Cancer, thus placing the original site in the epoch of 8000 BC.

After navigating our way across the desert to Luxor West Bank we arrive at the opulent Al Moudira Hotel. This oasis of grace and elegance is nestled within a lush garden, adorned with lemon, orange, mandarin, mango, guava, and palm trees, while hibiscus, eucalyptus, jasmine, and henna line the brick paths. Here, you can unwind in the pool or the Turkish Bath, indulge in a relaxing massage, or simply savor an al fresco dining experience in the fountain courtyard, reminiscent of the charm of Marrakesh in 1902.

Dendara Egypt

Today you have a free day to spend in leisure or adventure in Luxor, where the options to explore and indulge are as endless as the Nile is long. You might choose to start your morning soaring above the world's largest open-air museum in a hot air balloon, witnessing the sunrise over the majestic Valley of the Kings and the timeless River Nile. Or, dive into Luxor's rich culture by visiting a local alabaster shop, where the art of carving stone into exquisite pieces is both a tradition and a delight to witness. Maybe you want to visit to one of Luxor's esteemed jewelry shops, where the craftsmanship of gold and silver artifacts will leave you mesmerized. A free day in Luxor's promises an unforgettable blend of excitement and cultural immersion whether you spend it shopping, relaxing or exploring!

Ballooning Luxor

Once we prise you away from breakfast in the courtyard, it’s a short ride to Valley of the Kings. We will (hopefully) gain access to the anomalous chamber of Thutmosis III (we are often allowed this rare privilege but it is optional – at your own expense). You see, no one was buried here and the walls feature instructions on how to access the Otherworld and return alive. We’ll then visit a real tomb with exquisite depictions of the life of a pharaoh.

Following a delightful lunch on a covered verandah, we embark on a brief drive to the magnificent Hatshepsut Temple. This architectural masterpiece is nestled into the hillside, blending seamlessly with its natural surroundings and showcasing the remarkable craftsmanship of ancient Egyptian architecture.

Finally, we’ll squeeze in Djanet Temple, a bit off the tourist trail, because it is where eight of the primeval gods of Egypt are buried. Few come here, I don’t know why, this is one of the most important places on Earth.

Return to Al Moudira for relaxation in the Arabian Night atmosphere, sip mint tea or a cocktail in the eastern bar. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman just out of shot.

(Overnight in Luxor West Bank at the Al Moudira Hotel or similar)

Hatsheput Egypt

Grudgingly we depart for Edfu. To avoid large crowds we go by bus and take a packed lunch, giving us the luxury of a few quiet hours. The Edfu temple is one of the best-preserved temples, thanks to the Greeks who rebuilt it, and in the process uncovered perhaps the most important prehistoric text detailing the activities of the gods and their point of origin. The site is dedicated to the offspring of the resurrected god-man Osiris: Horus or Heru, symbol of the path of the fully awakened initiate, and the root of ‘hero’.

(Overnight in Aswan at Old Cataract Hotel or similar)

Egypt 2022 - Edfu

After lunch, we take a short bus ride to Kom Ombu. Kom Ombu is comprised of two temples, one dedicated to Horus, the other to Sobek. Each was used to raise the initiate’s awareness through specific tests. Here, they learned to control fear, and proved it by swimming with live crocodiles. Swimming gear mandatory.

(Overnight in Aswan at Old Cataract Hotel or similar)

Kom Ombu Temple Egypt

After a relaxing breakfast at Old Cataract, we have free time to shop the market and visit the Papyrus Institute. While a thousand tourists head to Philae, there’s an optional tour to Khnum Temple on Elephantine Island (where the Ark of the Covenant once resided), followed by a relaxing boat ride to the Nubian Village, to see how real people live. Just about everyone takes this option, probably for the chance to hold the unusual family pet.

As the hordes depart from Philae, we head to the island (superior tour planning requires observation and avoidance of crowds as much as possible). We share a packed lunch with a hundred cats, and then walk the temple in peace. Philae, or P-aaleq, is one of the eight original mounds established in the primeval age of the gods, it is a truly ancient site where the cosmic marriage of Osiris and Isis was consummated twice a year.

We sail back to the Old Cataract for dinner by the Nile.

(Overnight in Aswan at Old Cataract Hotel or similar)

Philae in Egypt

To complete our adventure, we fly back to Cairo early, freshen up at Mena House and prepare for one of the greatest experiences in life: We finally enter the Great Pyramid in private, the prize for every initiate who completed training along the Nile temples. We ascend the Grand Gallery, follow in the footsteps of countless initiates and gods, into the Kings Chamber, completing our ascension (literally and metaphorically). Who knows what will pop out of those megalithic red granite walls.

We close our adventure with a memorable meal at Mena House, and a stunning view overlooking the pyramids. Here, we share stories and bid each other au revoir, for in the ancient world, farewells are not goodbyes but rather the beginning of new journeys.

(Overnight in Cairo at the Mena House Hotel or similar)

Giza Pyramids in Egypt

As our journey through Egypt's temples and sacred sites concludes, we leave enriched with profound experiences and insights. From the pyramids of Giza to the temples of Luxor and Abydos, we've explored ancient mysteries and spiritual teachings, deepening our understanding of ourselves and the universe.

We have one final breakfast before transferring to Cairo International airport, carrying with us not only memories but a deeper understanding of our place in the world.
