You are invited to join me and renowned Egyptologist and tour guide Mohamed Ibrahim for the adventure of a lifetime – a 12 day expedition to see & touch the world’s greatest super structures on the 2023 Megalithic Marvels of Egypt Tour. While mainstream history tells us that the dynastic Egyptians (3000 BC) built the Great Pyramids as tombs, we will examine the evidence that points to an advanced civilization that predated the pharaonic dynasties and who used lost ancient technology to engineer these mega-ton wonders. On this tour you will enjoy exclusive access to encounter these megaliths and learn the hidden history of Egypt in a friendly and inclusive environment. Pulling from his 20+ years of guiding tours, I can say from experience that Mohamed puts a personal touch on his tours and will take us where most tourists never go – to eat the best local food, to stay at some of the nicest hotels and to see the most enigmatic parts of each ancient site. From cruising down the Nile river, to soaring over the Luxor sunrise in a hot-air-balloon, to riding camels alongside the Giza pyramids – our Egypt adventure will culminate with a two hour long (after hours) private visit inside the most mysterious structure on earth – the Great Pyramid of Giza, where we will explore every chamber and passageway! I hope that you will join us. – Derek Olson (Megalithic Marvels founder)

Is a vaccine or negative COVID-19 test required for re-entry back into the United States? No. Starting on June 12, 2022, the CDC will no longer order air passengers to show a negative COVID-19 test result, or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19, prior to boarding a flight to the United States.
Is Egypt a safe country to visit? Tourism is Egypt’s number one industry as approximately 10 million tourists visit this amazing country each year. Therefore, you will find that Egypt is friendly to westerners and most of the Egyptian people are kind and hospitable. Women do not need to wear head coverings, and there is much western influence within the cities. For example, you will see many young women walking and shopping by themselves at night. On our previous tour, we were perfectly safe and had zero safety concerns or issues. Most larger tours, such as ours, will also have a private security guard to assist us along the way.
Will I need a passport? Yes, and you will need a passport that is still valid for at least 6 months after the tour.
Do I need to get a travel visa? Yes, but you can easily get your travel visa AFTER you arrive to the Cairo airport with the help of Mohamed’s team. The visa will cost approximately $25 cash.
Do I need travel insurance? You are not required to purchase travel insurance, but it is recommended for your own peace of mind if you think there is a chance that you may not be able to make the trip for some reason.

Is there laundry service? Yes, there will be laundry service at all of our hotels. Hotels do charge a fee for laundry service.
