with Normandi Ellis & Indigo Rønlov
Join Normandi Ellis and Indigo Rønlov on this special journey to Egypt, where we will go Off the Beaten Path and Through the Layers of Time. For both Normandi and Indigo, this is a very exciting and special trip. We will visit some of our favorite places, where the gods and goddesses can still be so strongly felt, and we will also travel to some places that many travelers have never been before -- even a couple of places Normandi and Indigo have never seen! 

We will have the opportunity to meet ancient whales from a time when the oceans covered the sands as well as visit many beautiful sacred sites and temples, churches and mosques while meeting modern and thriving Egypt. This journey will offer you a wonderful opportunity to see some of the lesser known monuments such as a private visit to the Sun Temple of Abu Ghorab, Medinet Habu, the Valley of the Queens, the Precinct of Mut, Kalabsha Temple, The Valley of the Whales, a day touring the churches and mosques of Old Cairo, and more.

This tour package also includes four nights in Cairo at Lé Meridian with views of the Great Pyramids, nine nights aboard our beautiful dahabeya Afandina as we sail along the River Nile, visits to many ancient temples that include special private visits to select sacred sites; most meals; all travel within Egypt, and teachings from Normandi and Indigo. 

Normandi Ellis has been working with Egypt, its mysteries, its magical language, beautiful gods and goddesses, splendid guides and guardians of the netherworld for the last 30 years. This is a life's work that she really wants to share with you. So many people have said to her over the years, "If I am going to go to Egypt with anyone, Normandi, it's going to be you." That gives her such inspiration, hope, peace and the knowing that the last 30 years her energy has been in the right direction by doing this deeply spiritual work. If indeed you want to come to Egypt with Normandi, this February 2018 tour is your time to join her. This will be her last publicized tour to Egypt.
