Tour Description

AWAKENING THE SOUL AND WALKING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE PHARAOHS
EGYPTIAN DREAMING: A spiritual journey through the sands of time.
​Sue Nicholson International Psychic Medium & Spiritual Counsellor

In 2011 I was being shown by spirit to travel to Egypt and take a tour. I had always been fascinated as most of us are with the mysteries of the place but I was not prepared when I arrived to see these massive magnificent building appearing there in front of me as we were driving towards them, and thought I’m here and these are the great Pyramids which I had seen in books and on TV it was just so much to take in.
 
And now I am being shown again by spirit it is the time for me to revisit this amazing place and take in even more of the wonders of this spiritual place.
 
I am looking forward to taking you all to experience this Ancient civilisation
 
I will open the energies and the portals for you to connect with the higher vibration so you can feel and sense as we travel and walk through the many different Temples
 
To experience a meditation in paws of the Sphinx as you watch the sun rise
 
I will open your Akashic records to see if you lived in the time of Ancient Egypt and who you were, we will have a special aura camera to photograph your aura at the beginning of the journey and again at the end….and much more.
 
So don’t forget to bring your walking shoes and let’s travel this journey of a life time together and make it happen.
 
My very special offer to the first 10 bookings will be a FREE READING
 
I am partnering with Leisa McInnes from Pink Lotus Tours who has travelled to Egypt many times and has organised a very special private visit into the Sphinx for our group only.
A real highlight not offered on normal trips.

Leisa will manage all the bookings and enquiries.
Her email is leisa@pinklotustours.com
 
See you all there

PRIVATE VISIT: Early morning visit to the Sphinx. We have been granted very special access not normally available to the general public. We will have the privilege of watching the sunrise on the Giza Plateau with just our group in the Paws of the mighty Sphinx. The Sphinx was widely believed to have been an oracle. Between its paws is a 15th-century BC stone tablet called a ‘Dream Stela’ recounting a vision given to a prince who slept in the shadow of the Sphinx (and perhaps sought its divine aid) and later became a pharaoh.
Later today we will explore the Giza Plateau, your chance to personally stand where the Ancient Egyptians stood thousands of years ago, next to the Great Pyramid of Cheops, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that still exists. 
Later, an experience not to miss is venturing down into the burial chamber of Menkaure (Third Pyramid).
We continue our adventure with a camel ride through the Sahara for those who are interested (optional extra cost).
The day is not over yet, we will visit the government regulated Papyrus Institute.
We will now experience how the ancients recorded their history on the first paper ever produced.
See the processes and efforts it took to make this ancient form of paper.
Also, enjoy the beautiful illustrative Egyptian art and stories painted depicting Egyptian lifestyle and culture.            Back to the hotel for quick freshen up.
We will end our day watching the sunset over the Sahara as we enjoy our dinner.

The Temple of Hathor is located in Dendara is a magnificent sight to explore with its main building virtually intact, with twisting stairways carved with hieroglyphs.
Hathor was also regarded as a goddess of healing, and this is evident in the presence of a sanatorium in the temple complex. Here, pilgrims would come to be cured by the goddess. Sacred water (which was made holy by having it poured onto statues inscribed with sacred texts) was used for bathing, unguents were dispensed by the priests of Hathor, and sleeping quarters were provided for those hoping that the goddess would appear in their dreams, and so aid them.
In the evening, we will fly back to Cairo.
