𓆸 Thursday October 19 (Day 02): Giza Plateau / Sphinx / Old Cairo

We begin our day with an inspirational private and exclusive sunrise visit to the Giza Plateau. You will begin to feel the energy when you hear the soul-stirring voices of the city being called to prayer. Witness the sun rising directly between the magnificent paws of the Sphinx, who sees all our incarnations on this planet and who keeps safe the Hall of Records where our stories are kept. The Sphinx sits in part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis, the seat of Power for the Pharaohs, a short distance from the Pyramids. Though it is normally off-limits to tourists, we will have a magnificent private visit to stand between the paws of the Sphinx at sunrise, offering us a chance to really anchor in the powerful energies of our trip.

After enjoying a delicious buffet breakfast, we’ll step back in time to explore the ancient cobblestones of Old Cairo, a city that has stood the test of time for millennia. Our expert guides will take us on a journey to historic landmarks such as the Hanging Church, a Coptic Christian church that dates back to the 3rd Century, Abu Serga – the Cavern Church, built over a cave where the Holy Family was hidden, and the Ben Ezra Synagogue, where legend says Moses was found. You’ll be immersed in the rich history and culture of this incredible city, and your senses will be stimulated with the sights, sounds, and smells of Old Cairo.

This active mosque contains both royal tombs and mausoleums, and we’ll explore the five pillars of Islam while touring this powerful site. Get ready for the first of many surprises on this incredible journey.

In the afternoon, we’ll visit the brand-new Grand Egyptian Museum, a stunning architectural marvel that straddles the 162-foot difference in levels between the Nile valley and the Giza plateau.

𓆸 Saturday October 21 (Day 04): Aswan (Nubian Village)

It’s another exciting morning as we leave behind Cairo and take a short flight to Aswan. There, we will embark on our deluxe private Nile cruise aboard a unique dahabeya, the same type of boat that Caesar and Cleopatra chose for their honeymoon! Our private chef will prepare a delicious lunch for us to enjoy as we settle in and prepare for an incredible journey down the Nile.

Experience the most authentic way to cruise the Nile on a traditional felucca sailboat, which has been used in Egypt since ancient times. We’ll take a relaxing afternoon sail to a Nubian Village, where you’ll get a glimpse into the daily lives and culture of the locals.

Take a camel ride for the last leg of this fun journey – riding a camel along the Nile is a delightful and special one-time event in your life, so cross this off your bucket list! At the Nubian Village, we will enjoy their culture, tradition, daily life, homes, costumes, and hear their unique language.

After a day of adventure and cultural immersion, we will indulge in a special meal prepared just for us by our private chef. Whether you’re a vegetarian or vegan, our chef will cater to your dietary needs and preferences with fresh salads, vegetables, rice dishes, and more.

(Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

Overnight on our Dahabeya

𓆸 Sunday October 22 (Day 05): (Aswan) Philae Temple

Just before dawn breaks, we will embark on a short coach ride to the lakeshore, where we will transfer to a motorboat and glide towards the magical island of Philae. This is where the temple of Isis, Egypt’s Divine Mother, is situated. Our private and exclusive visit will allow us to immerse ourselves in meditation and bask in the healing energy of this sacred site. Philae embodies a fusion of three great civilizations: Egyptian, Greek, and Roman. Here, you may connect with the Great Cosmic Mother, tap into the power of creation, and experience the magic of ancient Egypt. Many of our guests consider Philae their favorite temple, and unforgettable transformations have occurred here in the palpable alchemy of the surroundings.

As the afternoon approaches, we will set sail for the first time along the Nile, journeying back in time to experience the peaceful, farmland banks that have remained untouched for centuries. Relax and savor Afternoon Tea as we peacefully drift along the Nile.

Onboard dinner is an experience not to be missed. Each evening, you will savor a unique meal, then gaze up at the stars overhead from the upper deck. Take this opportunity to journal or simply relax as we slowly sail down the Nile, aligning ourselves with the cradle of civilization. Many guests have reported sleeping better than ever before, feeling as though they are being rocked to sleep by the gentle rhythms of the Nile.

(Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

Overnight on our Dahabeya

𓆸 Monday October 23 (Day 06): Sail to Kom Ombo Temple

Following breakfast, we will set sail towards Kom Ombo, a unique temple situated on the banks of the Nile. This stunning temple, with its picturesque ruins, is the only dual temple in Egypt, dedicated to two gods – Sobek, the crocodile god of strength, fortitude, fertility, and rebirth, and Horus, the hawk-headed son of Isis and Osiris. The contrasting forces of light/dark, conscious/unconscious, and yin/yang are evident in this ancient site, and the Seat of Neutrality, located on the precise centerline between the temple’s parts devoted to Horus/Sobek and light/dark, is one of Kom Ombo’s most potent spots.

After experiencing the transformative energy of Kom Ombo, we will sail to Edfu, where we will spend the night. In the afternoon, we have a unique opportunity to participate in a Transformational Workshop led by Halle a Wealth and Mindset Coach with almost a decade of experience. In this session, held in our salon, Halle and Halle will provide customized material to help each member of the tour transform and align their work and life with their greatest aspirations. Regardless of where you are in your personal evolution, this powerful interactive workshop will deepen the shifts you are experiencing and equip you with new tools to achieve better results in all areas of your life.

Later, we will savor dinner on board and bask in the tranquility of the Nile, preparing for the next day’s adventure.

𓆸 Tuesday October 24 (Day 07): Edfu Temple

Sit down to another delicious breakfast (how many ways can you order your eggs? All of them!) Then we set off to explore the magnificent Edfu Temple, dedicated to Horus, the Falcon God. The sheer size of the temple is awe-inspiring, with a vast courtyard, towering columns, and high ceilings. As you wander through the side chambers, you will witness the intricate and fascinating ancient rites that took place here. From the healing chamber to the perfumery and singers’ rooms, every corner reveals the complexity and depth of Egyptian culture. The House of Life chamber, which stored all the sacred texts used in seasonal and daily rituals, is a testament to the temple’s significance in Egyptian history. Horus represents higher vision and clarity, and the temple offers a deeper exploration of the Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities, as they relate to the story of the Eye of Horus. The left eye symbolizes the lunar, the moon, the intuitive, and the feminine energy, while the right eye represents the solar, the masculine, the action, and the yang energy. Both are necessary for true power to exist, and this temple brings their harmony to life.

Afterward, we continue our leisurely sail down the Nile, stopping along the way for one of our delightful surprises. With the privacy of our chartered dahabeya, we can schedule our stops away from the bustle of large cruise ships and take our time to savor every moment of this unforgettable journey.

𓆸 Wednesday October 25 (Day 08): Full day Sailing to Esna

Today, we embrace the tranquility of sailing along the Nile, relishing in the leisurely pace of our journey on our way to navigating through Esna Lock. If you’ve never been through a lock before, it’s both fun and educational, and we will gather on deck to enjoy the experience.

This serene day is often a highlight for our guests, offering a glimpse into the unhurried way of life along the river. It is the perfect time for introspection and contemplation, whether that means writing in your journal, meditating, or simply enjoying the company of your fellow travelers.

After lunch, Sam will work with the energies of the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt and her other connections to give our group soul guidance for healing and growth.  This active workshop will powerfully shift your experience, affecting your whole life, not just your trip. 

As the afternoon draws to a close, we will gather on the deck for another delightful tea time, then a custom Egyptian dinner.

 𓆸 Thursday October 26 (Day 9): Luxor/Valley of the Kings/Luxor Temple

Upon our early morning arrival in Luxor, we will head straight to the West Bank of ancient Thebes for a full day of exploration. Our first stop will be the Valley of the Kings, where we will be able to appreciate the beautiful colors on the restored walls of the Royal Tombs. After that, we will visit the mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, a remarkable feat of ancient architecture that features three massive terraces ascending the cliffs of Deir el-Bahari. Hatshepsut, who ruled as a male pharaoh, was almost erased from history, but her legacy endures in this magnificent site.

Later, we will visit a local alabaster factory where we can see firsthand the carvings made from the stone excavated from nearby hills and marvel at the exquisite statues crafted from Aswan granite. We will also take in the Colossi of Memnon, two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, where they are currently excavating the Temple of Mut, which will be even larger than Karnak Temple once it is fully uncovered.

In the evening, we will enjoy the Temple of Luxor under the stars. This temple complex is designed to resemble a human body, with the outer layers representing the feet and the inner sanctuary representing the head. This is an ideal place to focus on physical healing and reawakening dormant parts of ourselves. As you walk through the body of this temple, notice how your body feels and re-member radiant health. Awaken the parts of you that are sleeping, activate divinity codes and turn on your inner light.

(Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

Overnight on our Dahabeya

𓆸 Friday October 27 (Day 10): Karnak/Luxor Market


After breakfast, we will start our day with an early visit to the spectacular Karnak Temple. This is the largest temple complex in Egypt and is dedicated to the gods Amun and Mut. As you enter, you will walk between a row of ram-headed sphinxes, which, after years of excavation and restoration, once again connect Karnak with Luxor Temple two miles away. Take some time to visit the sacred Lake of Karnak, ask for purification, and visualize your intention as you place it in the lake.

Beyond the main halls, there is a small chapel dedicated to the Goddess Sekhmet, her consort Ptah, and their son Nefertum. Sekhmet is the lioness goddess of compassion and courage, associated with feminine fire and healing through destruction. She is known for her magical abilities to hunt down and correct imbalances at their source. In a powerful private initiation, we will pay homage to the goddess and receive the gift of courage to be our authentic selves. We will meditate with Sekhmet and find shade under Hathor’s sycamore tree, which is said to be 2,000 years old.

Afterward, we will visit Luxor Market to experience the local flavors and sights. Then we will stop at Radwan’s, the renowned jewelers known for the gold and silver designs that Egypt is famous for.

(Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

𓆸 Saturday October 28 (Day 11): Dendera Temple & Abydos Temple

After breakfast, we will say farewell to our Dahabeya and head to the Temple of Dendera, a stunning temple dedicated to the goddess of love, joy, and abundance, Hathor. The temple boasts a zodiac ceiling that reflects the origins of ancient Egypt, and the hieroglyphics in the crypt are fascinating and mysterious, with some even suggesting ancient energy sources. On the rooftop, where Hathor’s priests and priestesses once celebrated, we will perform a heart-opening chakra ceremony, connecting with both Earth and Cosmic energies and amplifying them with love and gratitude.

Our next stop is Abydos, where we will visit the temple of Pharaoh Seti I, one of the most important religious sites for ancient Egyptians. The temple contains small chapels dedicated to each of the major gods, including Ptah, Re-Harakhte, Amun-Re, Osiris, Isis, and Horus. It also houses the nine great Gods and Goddesses, known as the Ennead. Abydos was a place strongly associated with the entrance into the afterlife, and visiting it was a cherished hope for ancient Egyptians. We will also see the Osirion, a unique ancient temple that sits next to and below the temple of Seti I. The Osirion is considered one of the most powerful places on the planet and features the tattoo of the Flower of Life, the most primal sacred geometry.

After an amazing day, we will check into the beautiful House of Life Hotel in Abydos. Swim in the pool, or just relax on your balcony, before enjoying dinner with our group in the hotel restaurant.

(Breakfast / Picnic Lunch / Dinner)

𓆸 Sunday, October 29 (Day 12): Sohag/Cairo

After enjoying breakfast, we will check out from the House of Life Hotel and board a short flight directly from Sohag airport to Cairo.

𓆸 Monday, October 30 (Day 13): Great Pyramid / Khan el Khalili Bazaar/Farewell Dinner

Early this morning, you will have the rare opportunity to experience a private visit inside the Great Pyramid. First, we will gather for a culminating ceremony in the King’s Chamber, uniting our life story with those who came before and those who will come after, embracing the transformation experienced on this journey.

As you stand in awe of the impeccable geometry and sheer power of this timeless wonder, you’ll ponder the obvious questions: How were they built, and why? Our Egyptology expert guide will share the latest research and delve into various controversial theories surrounding these amazing structures.

Afterwards, indulge in a sumptuous breakfast at the luxurious Four Seasons before taking the day for yourself. Relax and rejuvenate at the Four Seasons Spa, or explore anything else that piques your interest.

Alternatively, join Halle on an optional tour to the famous Khan El Khalili Bazaar, one of the oldest shopping districts in the world, dating back to at least the 14th century. As you wander the colorful streets, take the opportunity to purchase final Egyptian treasures to bring home.

In the evening, we’ll come together in a special place in New Cairo for our Farewell Dinner. We’ll celebrate and share our unforgettable memories of Egypt, reflecting once more on the journey of a lifetime we’ve shared together.

𓆸 Tuesday, October 31 (Day 14): Final Departure

After indulging in one last sumptuous breakfast at the Tea Room in the Four Seasons, it’s time to say goodbye to Egypt and embark on the your journey home. You’ll be transferred from the hotel to Cairo Airport, where you can reflect on the incredible experiences you’ve had over the past few weeks.

As you wait for your flight, you may find yourself reminiscing about the mesmerizing sights you’ve seen, the fascinating stories you’ve heard, and the connections you’ve made with your fellow travelers. Perhaps you’ll close your eyes and remember the feel of the warm sun on your skin as you stood at the base of the Great Pyramid, or the peaceful energy of the Temple of Isis as you meditated in its tranquil surroundings.

You’ll carry with you the lessons you’ve learned and the transformations you’ve experienced during this journey. You may find yourself feeling more grounded, more open-hearted, and more in tune with the universe around you.

As you board your flight, you’ll have a sense of gratitude for this once-in-a-lifetime experience and the new circle of friends you’ve made along the way. And although you may be leaving Egypt physically, the memories and shifts you’ve experienced will stay with you forever.
