Lead an Egypt Christian Tour
After an 8-year hiatus of leading a Bible study tour of Egypt, we have a strong amount of interest. Would you consider being the Pastor on our Egypt Christian tour?
Our Egypt Christian Tour is a small, group tour that focuses on the Biblical Record and follows the Hebrew documentation in Egypt. Many of the archeological evidence from the new documentary, Patterns of Evidence, Exodus will be included. We will spend time retracing the footsteps of Moses and the Israelites in the wilderness, stay on the Nile to visit the ancient tombs and temples and also visit the Mummy Room, where there is a strong chance that you come be face-to-face with the mummy of the Pharaoh to whom Moses spoke at the time of the Exodus. The tour is priced at approximately $2,999 per person, plus international airfare and insurance.
This Biblical itinerary includes sights—and sites—that are rarely shown or discussed by Egyptologists. With the Bible as our roadmap, this expedition will illuminate the scriptures even more, as well as providing ample time to relax on the Red Sea!

- Study exclusive Biblical artifacts in the Egyptian Museum, including the famous Merneptah “Israel” Stele that proclaims, “Israel is no longer, its seed is wasted”.
- See the ancient Hebrew texts from the Israeli Academic Center of Cairo at the 100-year-old synagogue.
- Visit the Giza plateau, its Pyramids and Sphinx, where we will highlight the Dream Stele of Amenhotep II/Thutmose IV. After he had a dream that he would be king, his brother, who was the first born, died in the plagues and his father died in the Red Sea while chasing the Israelites.
- Receive an exciting Bible teaching regarding the significance of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
- Visit the “Joseph tomb” that was excavated in 1987. We will also visit the administrative seat where Joseph lived and administered for Pharaoh. You will see his statues, storehouses and his famous Step Pyramid!
- Tour a site in the Sinai that allows us to view Jabal al Lawz, the blackened mountain top outlined in Exodus 19:18, that is known as the “real” Mt. Sinai.
- Visit to Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens and Thebes to see the relief of Amenhotep II in his chariot – a scene most likely depicting his untimely death while chasing the Israelites into the Red Sea.
- See, at Thebes, the Pharaoh Shishak’s inscriptions from his campaign into Israel from 1 Kings 14:25-26.
- Visit Memphis, where the frightful intensity of God’s plagues took place. Visit the site where the 13th-Century Ipuwer Papyrus was found, which outlines those very plagues.
- Study the relief of Seti I’s campaign against the Hebrews in the mountains of Upper Galilee. See the Egyptian hieroglyphics that proclaim that because the Hebrews followed the laws of Moses, Seti I claimed “the Shashu have no regards for the laws of his palace.”
- Visit an island on the Nile that has a very large inscription which explains the story of Joseph saving Egypt from a great famine. Even the name given him by the Egyptians means “the savior of Egypt, from the seven years of famine”. Genesis 41:25: “And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.” And Genesis 41:35: “And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.”
- Visit the grand funerary temple of Hatshepsut, designed by Moses. See his defaced statue and then visit his nearby chapel, unused tomb and even his parents’ tomb!
- Visit Saqqara, the site where the famous Excretion Texts were discovered. The texts from 1878-1630 B.C. names Jerusalem, and the giants who dwelt in Canaan.
- Visit the site of the Jewish Temple at Aswan and enjoy a teaching on how it most likely was built to hold the Ark of the Covenant during Manasseh’s reign. (The name Manasseh means “causes to forget”.) The temple was oriented towards Jerusalem and measured 60 cubits long and 20 cubits wide – the same dimensions as Solomon’s temple. Isaiah 19:19: “In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border.” Aswan has long been considered the border of Egypt and Nubia/Ethiopia.
- See, on the West Bank of the Nile near Thebes, the name of Joseph-El on the base of Thutmose III’s statue. Thutmose III reigned in 1388-1349 B.C.
- View the battle reliefs at Karnak that depicts a feverish struggle between Egypt and the city of Ashkelon from Pharaoh Merneptah’s reign.
- Tour Abydos to see the site of a great battle between Pharaoh and Jerusalem. Recall that Osiris was worshiped here until the time that Christianity came to Egypt via Rome. At that time, the temple was closed.
- See the Kiosk of Taharka, the famous Ethiopian/Nubian King who ruled over Egypt and Ethiopia/Nubia at the time of the Assyrian King Ashurbanipal.
- We believe that you’d be hard-pressed to find a more Biblically-based tour of Egypt! And your time will be filled with fellowship and awe at just how much history is documented in the structures that document Biblical truths of early Hebrew history.
