Go on tour with HMNS! We plan educational trips to international destinations. Full itineraries for the following trips will be available soon.

The Royal Tour with Dr. Zahi Hawass
March 22 – April 2, 2016

Dr. Zahi Hawass, world-renowned Egyptologist, is hosting a trip of a lifetime for HMNS. Dr. Hawass will take you beyond the beaten tourist path to visit hidden archeological sites not accessible to the general public. This will include a private visit to the Great Pyramid interior and the great Sphinx in Cairo. While in Luxor City, our group will have an exclusive evening in the Temple of Luxor after the tourists have been cleared. Dr. Hawass will show you his most recent excavations on the Giza Plateau as well as the Valley of the Kings in Luxor. His presence is essential for the private access we will be given to these sites. Fadel Gad, your tour guide, is an Egyptologist who worked for the Egyptian Department of Antiquities and conducted excavations in Lower and Upper Egypt. Dr. Dirk Van Tuerenhout, HMNS curator of anthropology, and Tom Hardwick, HMNS curator of Egyptology will also accompany the group. We hope you join us in this unique opportunity to visit Egypt, one of the most fascinating destinations in the world.
