Jan 8-11, 2023

Itinerary: Tanis & Tell el Armana

Our sojourn begins in the 'Land of Goshen', Tanis/Zoan to explore the area of the Biblical story of Exodus and where Moses performed the miracles before Pharaoh! Continuing next day we travel deep into middle Egypt to the tombs of Beni Hasan and ultimately to explore the mystical energies and remaining structures of Tell El Armana, a once great city dedicated to the ‘ATEN’ or Sun Disk. Founded by Pharaoh Akhenaten, Tell El Armana is the ‘birthplace’ of monotheism in Egypt, a very radical idea for a land run by religious cults for centuries. (Akhenaten’s wife and Queen was iconic beauty Nefertiti and he was also the father of King Tutankhamun). This trip is a wonderful way to complete your Egypt journey.
