After a delicious breakfast we visit the sacred and ancient city of Abydos, the Seti l temple and its famous Kings List, as well as the strange hieroglyphs depicting modern technology and flying vehicles! We will descend to the Osirion Temple, discovered in 1903, with the flower of life burnt into the huge stone uprights. The megalithic stonework here is the largest in Egypt and the temple is now free of water so we have arranged private special access for our Megalithomania group.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner / Overnight: on board Nile Cruise.


Day 8: Visit Horus Temple at Edfu / Temple of Kom Ombo
Today we will visit Edfu Temple of Horus one of the most well-preserved Temples in Egypt. The side chambers of the Temple show the complexity of ancient rites. They include a healing chamber, a perfumery, and singers’ rooms. One chamber, called the House of Life, stored all of the sacred texts used in seasonal and daily rituals. Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power. The builders were influenced by the legendary Followers of Horus, a predynastic elite who occupied Egypt, who were thought to have written the Edfu Building Texts that describe dates going back tens of thousands of years. Sail to Kom Ombo, by sunset we will visit the only dual temple in Egypt. This dramatic temple poised between the edge of the river and the encroaching desert sand was 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 duality of light/ dark, yin/yang, conscious/unconscious is obvious in this ancient site. One of the most powerful places in Kom Ombo is the Seat of Neutrality, which is placed on the exact centerline between the parts of the temple that are dedicated to Horus / Sobek and Light/Dark. We will dock near Kom Ombo for the night. Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner / Overnight: on board Nile Cruise.


Day 9: Sail to Aswan / Visit Philae - Temple of Isis / Afternoon Felucca ride
Today we will return to the source of all, the Great Mother, to receive the blessings of Isis at her beautiful island temple at Philae. This isle represents a fusion of three great civilizations: Egyptian, Greek and Roman. It is also here that numerous giant skeletons were unearthed in 1901, including one that was over eleven feet tall. We will continue our leisurely morning as we sail to Aswan. Aswan city is our favorite Egyptian city. Enjoy a felucca boat ride. Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner / Overnight: on board Nile Cruise.

Feedback from the 'Egyptian Origins Tour' November 2019

"Thanks to Megalithomania for truly epic tour of Egypt and Jordan! The list of highlights is way too long to mention. Suffice to say we got to see more than expected, learned more than expected, and had the pleasure of doing all this in a great travel group of fascinating people. The insights from Hugh, J.J., Jim, Yousef, and the local guides made seeing all these sights for the first time even more exciting. We loved the combination of hotels and the Nile cruise. Getting to walk, climb, and crawl in the Great Pyramid, Bent Pyramid, Osiris Shaft, around the Sphinx, and other areas was amazing. We’re so happy we did the Jordan add-on. So many things to see in Jordan, still, Petra was even more remarkable than we imagined. Hope to see you all on a future trip! - Steve Sadler & Barbara Patrick, USA

"This was the best holiday trip experience in my life so far! Had lots of laughs and fun and I was absolutely stunned and mesmerised by the incredible historical ancient sites and captivated by the remarkable discoveries! I learned so much With your great knowledge insights and will remember this trip and you as a group / tour guides and all the tour hosts ,Forever! The choice of accommodation was impressive and meals was delicious . Thank you Soul of Egypt tours for your excellent arrangements. It was worth every dollar paid for this tour. Highly recommended! Thank you each one in the tour group for everyday’s friendly smiles and chats and I would love if ever it could be possible a reunion with the same group lol! Take care..maybe will see some of you again in the future". - Lariana, UK

"That was the best trip ever! I echo Lariana's hope that we all could get together again sometime. To a person, this was a wonderful, truly compatible and friendly group. The best!" - Aleta and Dave, USA

"Our Megalithomania tour to Egypt and Jordan was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! It was such a special trip shared with a group of like minded souls all interested in searching for the truth about these ancient civilizations. I am an ancient history addict and love to explore alternative theories about the origins of civilization. Hugh Newman, Jim Vieira, Yousef Awyan, and JJ Ainsworth guided and informed our journey every step of the way. It was so special to hear cutting edge theories from experts in the field! I learned a lot and was able to ask many questions, which was so fulfilling! We are definitely booking another Megalithomania tour soon!" - Katy and Jorge Montanez, Mexico/US

"Well what an amazing holiday, still resonating now with me as I'm sure it is with you too. Nobody does it like Megalithomania, thanks to Hugh and Jj, Jim Vieira, the Soul of Egypt team; Amro, Ahmed our wonderful guides; Yousef, Ehab, Adel, we walked betwwen worlds together. Great hotels, opulent dining all in stunning locations and in really good company which meant I may have started that journey alone but it ended with fond farewells to a couple of dozen or so new friends, thanks for putting up with me! " - Tony Chinn, UK
