A Journey to Egypt & the Nile River

We want to invite you on an unforgettable journey into Egypt, filled with ancient biblical history, culture, and spiritual blessings. We’ll visit places that witnessed events of decisive and enduring importance in the history of humanity.

This journey will provide you a deeper understanding of the scriptures as you travel through the lands of the Bible. When you make this journey in the company of friends and others of like mind, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience.

You can read your way through the Old Testament, or you can bring it to life with an all-inclusive trip to where it all took place. At the end of this tour, two things will most certainly be changed: you, and your understanding of the Bible.

Sincerely,
