Egypt does not require the Covid vaccinations.

Treat yourself to a once in a lifetime opportunity as you journey through the sacred land of Egypt. Our Egypt tours and Nile river cruises explore the Exodus account and visit the most significant and authentic Christian sites in Egypt from a Biblical and historical perspective.

The combination of Egypt’s stunning natural attractions with our speaker’s detailed insight will create an unforgettable experience that you’ll never want to end. These Biblical tours of Egypt allow you to walk the same paths as Moses and stand face-to-face with the same Pharaoh that Moses addressed in the time of Exodus.

Visit historic Christian sites like the Pyramids of Giza, Egyptian Museum, Luxor Temple, Step Pyramid, Solomon’s Column, tombs of the nobles, amongst other sites that mainstream tours don’t tend to offer. The popular documentary, “Patterns of Evidence: Exodus,” discusses many of the sites and artifacts you’ll see on this tour.

Although Egypt has just recently begun to receive recognition for it’s Biblical evidence, Living Passages has been leading Bible tours in Egypt for over a decade. If you love Biblical archaeology, you won't want to miss these tours!

Also at Karnak, we will see the Kiosk of Taharqa, named Biblically in 2 Kings 19:9 and in Isaiah 37:9. We will also see the fantastic reliefs of Seti the1st’s battles in Biblical Canaan and Syria. There is a specific relief which states “the Shashu have no regard for the laws of his palace.” This is referring to the Semitic peoples of which Jacob’s family was identified.

Day 6: Royal Valley of the Kings, Luxor, and Deir el Bahri
Breakfast aboard the ship and then depart for The Valley of the Kings. We will see the treasures of the tombs, including King Tut’s tomb and several other important tombs.

Dinner at the hotel.

Day 8: Biblical Lands of Goshen, Zoan, Tanis, Ramses, Avaris
Today we will travel to the area of Egypt that was the focus of Moses’ Psalm 78:12 and 43. We will drive north of Cairo and visit Zoan, also known as Tanis. This is where Moses would have performed the miracles of God that freed God’s children. Biblically, this city in Egypt in the Nile delta is discussed in Numbers 13:22. It says that it was built seven years after Israel’s Hebron was built. Hebron is the oldest Jewish community in the world. Psalm 78:12,43 identifies the "field of Zoan" as the location at which Moses performed miracles before Pharaoh to persuade him to release Israel from his service. When we are at the Egyptian Museum, the fascinating discoveries that were found in 1939 will be shown to you. Afterward, we will also visit the Biblical cities of Ramses and Avaris. You will learn the story of how the German archeologist Bietek was able to uncover another layer that has the fingerprints of Yahweh’s children underneath. We will have lunch at a local restaurant, returning to Cairo in time for dinner near the airport and then your 8:00 PM flight to the Red Sea.

Day 9:  Sharm el Sheik, Land Bridge Crossing Site, Red Sea
A day to sleep in!  Wake up on the spectacular Red Sea.  Enjoy a lush buffet breakfast and time to regroup on all you have seen.  If you are a snorkeler, this morning you can sign up for a snorkel trip on the Red Sea, or you can extend your time here and do a full dive.  At 2:00 PM, you will be picked up and taken to the site where you can see the land bridge that the Hebrew children may have walked on between Egypt and Midian during the miracle where God used Moses to part the Red Sea.  Afterward, you will be able to walk around the village of Sharm el-Sheik before returning to the hotel for an early dinner.

Day 10:  St. Catherine’s Monastery, Sinai Peninsula
Wake this morning at 0400, where you will be met and transported across the desert.  The drive is roughly 3 hours.  On arrival, there are 750 steps to the monastery.  The goal for many is to see the sunrise from the monastery.  If you wish to leave later in the morning and bypass sunrise, that is also an option. In addition, if you have trouble walking, there are methods of transportation to get you to within about 400 feet of the monastery itself.  This monastery is rich in precious Biblical and extra-Biblical manuscripts that date back to the 6th century.  It is known as one of the world’s best libraries for manuscripts.  The site is considered the “traditional” site where Moses spoke with God from a burning bush.  Only The Lord Himself can tell us exactly which mountain but it has been identified by Helena, Constantine’s mother at the time that the other key sites were named, including but not limited to the Church or Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.  After lunch and a private time of worship and quiet, we return the 3 hours back to Cairo.

Day 11:  Transfer to the airport
Most flights depart in the very early hours.  You will be met at your hotel and transferred back to the Cairo airport for your departure.
