14 Day Tour – Giza and Luxury Nile Cruise 

Expert Presenters. Exclusive Access.

Experience of a Lifetime. 

Join us, along with our passionate expert guides and presenters: Archeologists, Egyptologists, and researchers who have devoted most of their lives to studying Egypt and ancient sites around the world and who contribute significantly to uncovering and discovering more on our ancient past while advancing our understanding of it. 

This two week journey is packed with unique, incredible experiences that include private visits with exclusive access for our group to the foot of the Sphinx, inside all three Great Pyramids, and Osirion at Seti I Temple.  Full itinerary available later this month!

We’re excited to start this tour off with an evening lecture by renowned Archeologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass- an unforgettable experience that is brought to you in partnership with Archeological Paths and Dominant Travel.  

With Dr. Hawass warming up our sense of adventure and piquing our curiosity the first evening, on day two we head to the heart of one of this world’s greatest wonders: the Great Sphinx for a private group visit with our guide, Patricia Awyan Lehman.  Patricia has an extensive background of multi-disciplinary studies and decades of hands-on research in Egypt working with different organizations and excavations.  Together we ask big questions, and she provides in-depth answers with a variety of perspectives.  

As we embark on this “grand return” to a more connected way of living, we find inspiration on our journey throughout Egypt’s ancient sites, experiencing this connection through intimate food and culture experiences with local family farm-to-table eateries, papyrus making demonstration, and much more. 

Week One Overview – GIZA

Week Two Overview – Luxury Nile Cruise: Luxor-Aswan-Abydos

Week one in giza at Hyatt

During the first week of the tour, you will be staying at Hyatt Regency West in Cairo.    

WEEK TWO Luxury Nile Cruise

More than five million years ago, the Nile began to flow northwards into Egypt.  Since then, the river has been recognized as the source of all life, sometimes described as the spine of Africa and even our entire planet. Traveling along the Nile River today is a truly magical journey!  During the second week of the tour, you will enjoy the serenity and beauty of the Nile with daily excursions for site visits. 


solar alignment event

Enjoy a unique experience with solar alignment at Abu Simbel.  The sun’s rays penetrate the front corridor of the entrance to the Temple with a length of 200 meters until it reaches the Holy of Holies, illuminating the faces of King Ramses II, the god Ra-Hor, and his sister, the god Amun. 


Reunite With the wisdom of OUR Past

Ancient civilizations harnessed incredible knowledge of our world, utilizing the vast natural powers available in the region.  Many different artifacts and monuments have been discovered that demonstrate a great potential for humanity.  Egypt holds many keys to wisdom of the past, and the Grand Return shares this pivotal ancient knowledge through our tours and unique experiences. As we embark on this “grand return” to our ancient way of being, Egypt is a valuable region to connect and reunite with our past.
