, rescued from rising waters , dedicated to the Ancient Goddess ISIS :

Two millennia ago the Mediterranean world was enthralled by the mystery of Isis:

"I, Isis, am all that has been, that is or shall be; no mortal man hath ever seen me unveiled."

Called Aset by the ancient Egyptians, the goddess was a Madonna in the Mediterranean tradition that stretches far, far back to the primitive Mother Goddess from Anatolia, home to some of the oldest human communities on earth.

Isis was the powerful and quick-witted protector of her son Horus, the Sun God. Ancient peoples throughout the Mediterranean regarded Isis and Horus as the perfect Madonna and Child. Another legend says she was
also the mother of the fertility god Min who, judging from the depiction of him on temple walls, needed no help from Viagra!

Isis is portrayed regally, as a queen seated on a throne (which may be the meaning of her name), often holding her son Horus as a baby. Other images show her with broad, magnificent gilded wings able to protect the world. Isis, the great Mother Goddess. Come explore her mystery in timeless Egypt when you Travel in Style!

Continue to Dahshour, the newly-opened pyramid field south of Cairo. We visit the great pyramid of Senfru, father of Cheops, and other structure:

The "Discovery" of Dahshour:
For almost half a century, the great field of huge pyramids near the desert village of Dahshour, 25 miles south of Cairo, has been off limits to the public. Confined within the perimeter of a military base were many pyramids, including the great 4500-year-old pyramid built by Senfru, father of Cheops. Senfru's pyramid, the largest in Egypt until his son built Giza's Great Pyramid, is rhomboidal in shape: it tapers more distinctly on its upper half. All the pyramids were coated in thick plaster at one time. Most have lost these protective, decorative sheaths, but Senfru's--miraculously--is still in place.
Lunch is included at a local restaurant. Dinner is included at La Bodeg Restaurant or Abu El Sid or similar

Subject: Reflections on Egypt Trip

Dear Omar, Azza, Fatima & Team

It's been a few weeks since we returned from our trip to Egypt, and I have finally settled down back to the hurried pace of life in New York. Just wanted to express my thanks to you and your team for planning a wonderful 12-day trip to Egypt. Throughout the trip, we were impressed by the professionalism of your staff, and the level of care and planning for each day's activities, travels and meals. The tour guides are educated in their field and they gave us a good explanation and tour of the different sites and temples that we visited. The travel between different sites was well executed as we were shepherded by private vans, and your staff made sure we arrived at the airports early, and got picked up on time. Egypt is a large country, and we went to many different sites, and the transition and travel in between was smooth. The hotels you picked were very nice and relaxing, especially in Aswan and Luxor. We had good experiences dining in chosen restaurants in Cairo. The cruise was relaxing and efficiently took us to the different temple sites between Luxor and Aswan.

Ever since I was a kid, I had wanted to visit Egypt and see that all the country had to offer. I have read a lot about the history and mythology of the sites before the trip. And with your team, you had fulfilled that dream of mine. Words cannot express all that I had experienced and seen, and it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I have uploaded all of my travel photos on Flickr which you can feel free to look at. What I cannot capture in words, I have captured in photos.
