Day Description
Day 01 Arrive in Cairo be met by our staff who will assist you with clearing immigration and customs and transfer you to your hotel for the evening.
Day 02 after breakfast depart Cairo by air-conditioned van towards Pelusium. An ancient Egyptian city on the easternmost mouth of the Nile River. One of the first resting places of the Holy Family today it is an active archeological dig with a first century church being restored. It is common to find artifacts lying on the surface. From Pelusium you will follow the trek of the Holy Family to Tel Basta a short distance from Zagazig the main town in the Sharqiah Governorate Here Jesus caused a water spring to well up from the ground and His presence caused idols to crumble as foretold by the prophets of old. visit the site of Belbeis where they rested in the shade of a tree which called \\"The Virgin Mary\\'s Tree\\". Overnight in Cairo hotel.
Day 03 Onto Sakha Town the Coptic name of the town \\\\\\'the foot of Jesus\\\\\\' for the Holy Child\\\\\\'s footprint was marked here in bas-relief on a rock.The natural course of the Holy Family\\\\\\'s journey from Samannoud to Sakha would have taken them through many of the towns and cities now lying in both the Governorates of Gharbia and Kafr El-Sheikh and according to some folk traditions through the Belqas wastelands as well. after crossing the Rosetta branch of the Nile to the western Delta and heading south into Wadi el-Natroun in the Western Desert of Egypt became the site of anchoritic settlement and of many monasteries in spiritual commemoration of the Holy Family\\\\\\'s passage through the valley. Return Cairo to overnight
Day 04 Eventually they left the desert behind them and made their way southwards crossing the Nile to its eastern bank and heading for Matariyah and Ain Shams (ancient Heliopolis the site of the oldest \\'Temple-university\\' in history called since earliest Pharaonic times \\'Oan\\') Setting out next towards Old Cairo the Holy Family rested for a while in Zeitoun (the word means Olives) on their way then proceeded along a course which traverses what are now crowded bustling quarters of Cairo within which the serene landmarks of an earlier Coptic heritage still stand marking the paths the Holy Family followed. Overnight in Cairo.
Day 05 leave Cairo by private vehicle and follow the path south to Minya and Upper Egypt. The Holy Family moved in a southerly direction reaching the modern Cairo suburb of Maadi which in earliest pharaonic times was an outlying district of Memphis and at Maadi they boarded a sailing boat which carried them up the Nile towards southern Egypt. When they resumed their travels the Holy Family passed a laurel tree a stone\\'s throw south of Gabal El-Tair leading from the Mountain to Nazlet Ebeid and the New Minya Bridge of today. It is claimed that this tree bowed to Jesus Christ as He was passing. The configuration of the tree is indeed all its branches incline downwards trailing on the ground then turn upwards again. They call the tree \\'The Worshipper\\'. Overnight in Minya hotel.
Day 06 Once more crossing the Nile back to its West Bank the Holy Family traveled southwards to the town of Al-Ashmounein or Hermopolis Magna but it seems that they did not stay long there. Leaving behind them the rubble of fallen idols they continued south for another 12 miles to Dairout Al-Sharif (which like Al-Ashmounein had an alternative Greek name Philes) and then to Qussqam (or Qost-Qoussia).
