You feel a deep bliss and gratitude for the day you spent with a tribe of spiritually minded seekers from all walks of life. You have a sense of belonging to this family of Like-Minded Travellers.

Visit the Spinx and the plateaux. Our friend Gamal who has a vast knowledge of essential oils and perfumes will welcome us as a group to his oil shop for an afternoon or evening where we can ask him our questions and listen to his vast knowledge. All this in the first three days.
Our next stop is Luxor with the beautiful Temples of Luxor and Karnak on the east bank and the Valley of the Kings, Isis Temple (a little known temple) on the West Bank. Plus time for some shopping in the market and local shops. The Temples of Dendara and Abydos will call us for a visit from Luxor with an overnight stay in Abydos town. Then back to Luxor city where we travel to meet our Dahayba (boat) and sail on the Nile for four days and three nights stopping at the Temples of Komombo and Edfu. Also seeing the way people still farm and fish along the Nile banks. You will think you have stepped back in time to a simpler way of living. On to Aswan where we disembark and head to the island Temple of Philea. You will have an added extra option of adding a visit to Abu Simble from here.

Visit Temples that are up to 4,500 years old. Temples dedicated to the sacred feminine, the gods and the cosmos.
Experience the Great Pyramid of Egypt undisturbed, because our group will avail of two hours of private time inside this wonder of the ancient world.
Egypt,the mysterious land that has been calling to travellers for a very long time indeed. A land where the ancient stones speak with resonant, clear voices. Where one must listen for the spirit of the past to reveal its mysteries to us today.
What makes this Journey different?
Private time. Being alone in the Great Pyramid one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world is a truly mind-blowing experience and this is what Ber wants you to experience having your mind blown open to new understandings and experiences.
25years of experience
Ber has 25 years of experience visiting Egypt with groups.Over the years she has discovered what works for spiritual minded groups. She continues to look for new experiences to enhance your experience of Egypt.
Group Sharing. Evening Circle sharing, morning meditation(when possible) Plus an alternative look at history. Ber is happy to share her knowledge of how she believes Egypt came about. She acknowledges the Egyptolegologist’s way of looking at history yet also believes there is a pre history story asking to be discover as we journey through the Sacred Land go Egypt.We access this through meditation and quite time.
Seeing Egyptian life as it is today. As You travel through Egypt from Cairo to Aswan you will see the many different lifestyles from City life, Village life, country life and the life styles of those who live on the banks of the Nile. Ber has always believed that “Travel Broadens The Mind” so she wants you to see the as much of this culture from the modern high-rise buildings to the simple mud huts and everything in-between.
Food in Egypt
Food is always a consideration when visiting a foreign country. In Egypt there is a very good selection of foods from grilled chicken and other meats to a good variety of vegetarian dishes both modern and traditional.
Ber has found for her groups that certain hotels work better. Over the years Ber has found some quaint hotels and also those that have areas where you can sit and chat or contemplate the days journey.With the joy of journeying on the Nile Ber has settled for the more traditional boat The Dayabhia these boat are completely equipped with modern facilities. The boat is only for Ber’s group so you can relax on the sun lounger , read a book, take your photos or join with others for a chat all while being looked after by fantastic staff. Stopping at Temples and accessing them from the river is like stepping into the shoes of our forefathers before modern modes of transportation.
