Who's going?

Are you intrigued by 5000 years of Egyptian history?  And yet could not make sense what happened exactly over the 5000 years and would like to know how the ancient Egyptians has shaped our modern world and pouring over history books is not your cup of tea.  If you are like me, then join me on the journey to Egypt, discover and learn ancient Egypt from an expert Egyptologist, an authority in ancient Egyptian language hieroglyphics, author of “A journey into the sun: Selective articles in the Egyptian history” and his expert knowledge is widely sort after by the local TV channels.

At a glimpse, this is what we will be experiencing:

  • One of the oldest countries in the world with long history of peace and turbulence.
  • Inventions that influence our modern society.
  • UNESCO world heritage site.
  • Be amazed at how advanced the ancient Egyptians were.
  • Immersive and fast track learning of ancient Egyptian from an expert Egyptologist.
  • Ride an ATV to the desert and swim with the wild Dolphins.
  • Cruise the Nile River, one of the longest river in the world.
  • See the other side of Cairo that is seldom talk about, the Old Cairo. 

Let's meet the Pharaohs starting at Egypt

I have designed this trip to be an immersive experience, as such there will be some time allocated for mini “classroom” style interaction learning from the expert and for us to ask as many question as possible.  If time permits, maybe we can learn how to write and read hieroglyphics.  If sitting down to learn from an expert for an hour or 2 makes you drowsy then this trip is probably not for you.  

We will start our journey with a visit to the Egyptian museum, Egypt's most extensive museum of ancient antiquities.  Seeing the famous Tut Mask and the mummies.
