Embark on an Ancient Journey

The foundational narrative of the Exodus, as outlined in the second book of the Torah of Yahweh, contains some of the most vital and momentous accounts in all of the Old Testament. The quest to uncover the archaeological and geological evidence of the Israelites’ liberation from Egypt, Moses’ revelation at Mt. Sinai, and the nation of Israel’s ensuing desert wanderings have captured the hearts and minds of some of history’s most brilliant scholars and explorers. Cartographers, archaeologists, scientists, adventurers, historians, and disciples of all backgrounds have sought out the genuine locations depicted in ancient manuscripts. Finally – with the advent of state-of-the-art technology and the region’s ever-increasing political stability, the Northwest corner of Arabia has begun to divulge its buried secrets.

Join author Joel Richardson and archeologist, Eli Shukron on the adventure of a lifetime as Joel imparts his recent findings and his incomparable analysis of the land of Midian. By joining his team, you have an exclusive opportunity to study the land and inspect its evidence, with remarkable teachers at the helm. Explore Midian, known by locals to be the homeland of Jethro (the prophet named Shu’ayb) who was Moses’ father-in-law. Examine the Split Rock of Horeb at Jabal Maqla, where Moses struck the boulder and God miraculously provided water from within. Survey the Jabal al-Lawz mountain, with its charred and blackened summit, ascertained to be the original Mount Sinai which Yahweh descended upon in fire. Discover for yourself why Jewish and Bedouin traditions have continued for centuries to call this peak: “The Mountain of Moses”.

Why Now?

Entrance into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is in its infancy. This particular group space is exceptionally limited due to the distinctive nature of this trip’s itinerary and having the expertise of top Biblical archaeologist, Eli Shukron, traveling with you as well as Joel Richardson, who has broken much ground and research on the sites of Mount Sinai in Arabia. This is a rare opportunity to travel with two men who are fore runners-Joel in Biblical Prophecy and Eli in Biblical archaeology. Note that this particular expedition will take in new sites and maintains a pace that will allow the opportunity to expand on sites as needed. Please take careful note of the specific conditions for travel listed herein and as designated on the registration form. Be a part of history!

This expedition of Biblical proportions is at a cost of $5,199 per person (sharing a double room) or $5,599 in a private or single room. Originate from any home city in the world, or add on our optional group air from Washington, Dulles airport. Air is not included in the tour price.

Hiking Mount Sinai in Saudi ArabiaLooking to take a more adventurous route into the wilderness? Our Saudi Arabia Adventure package offers two alternatives. One is a 1-night camping adventure and the other is a 2-night camping adventure with the ability to take a guided climb of Mount Sinai and return a day after the main group departs.

The options below will highlight Moses’ time on Mount Sinai. Explore the real Mount Sinai (Jabal al-Lawz) by either spending quiet time alone at the base of the mountain thru a unique overnight camping adventure of soft hiking the lower areas or spending another night and having the ability to do permitted advanced climbing (the same route Moses may have taken when he received the 10 Commandments).

Overnight Option 1 is $650 per person including the ambiance of the specially erected campsite, a special breakfast, dinner, and all transportation.

Overnight Option 2 is $940 per person including the ambiance of the specially erected campsite, special meals, all transportation, climbing permits, and access to a local guide who knows the Mountain intricately. We send up one guide for every 3-4 climbers
