Program Overview

Essential Earth Explorations is partnering with Learning Journeys to present The Essence of Egypt. An immersive journey into the world of ancient pharaohs and queens. This experience offers the ideal combination to explore Egypt’s ancient historic sites, pyramids, and massive statuary, along with truly unique immersive experiences into the lives and cultural traditions of today’s Egyptian people.

Marty Harger, founder of Essential Earth Explorations, along with a professional Egyptologist will personally escort this trip. Explore classic temples and ancient sites such as the Great Sphinx and Pyramids. Travel the Nile River by cruise ship to reach key sites and learn more about this civilization’s profound impact on the world and the role the Nile played in its creation. Interact with Egyptian people during a visit to a family home, during a night exploring the local food scene, and as you try your hand at creating custom Egyptian hand crafts.

Essential Earth Explorations journeys include appreciation of the world’s aromatic essential oils – nature’s liquid plant essences with significant therapeutic, healing value. In Egypt, we will enjoy a full day of aromatic bliss and deeper understanding for the uses of aromatic, healing plants and their liquid essences. We’ve arranged a special visit to Egypt’s largest family farm and producer of essential oils for therapeutic uses and perfumery.

Marty and Learning Journeys have carefully curated this small-group immersion to provide a deeper understanding of the grandeur and significance of Egypt – past and present. You will love the variety in this trip’s immersive experiences and the opportunity to soak in the stories of both the ancient and modern life in this part of the world.
