Egypt has many historical places and attractions you can visit during Egypt tours and all of them are worth your visit and must-see sightseeing in your Egypt travel packages, one of the most important of these Egypt attractions is the journey of the Holy Family that is included in our Egypt religious tours. Egypt was blessed on this Holy journey by visiting Jesus Christ, Mary, and Youssef al-Najjar. So let's start talking about those unique Egypt day tours in the following blog.
The Holy Family found safety and protection on the territory of Egypt and the Gospel immortalized all the events of the family on Egyptian soil, so the family granted blessing to the people of Egypt, as mentioned in the Holy Bible.
Experience during our Egypt Luxury tours the holy family's journey in Egypt, it lasted two years, six months, and ten days and included 25 routes stretching 2,000 kilometers from Sinai to Upper Egypt, so there are many monasteries and churches you can visit in our Egypt Classic tours, as documented in manuscripts and religious sources, and the journey ranged from a week or a few days in some cities and others settled for a month and the longest time in Mount Qashqai and extended about 186 days. If you want a journey that tells about the story of the Holy family, I suggest choosing our Cairo day tours. There are many many places you can enjoy such as The Hanging Church, Visit Maryam's tree in Mataria.
The holy family entered Egypt to escape from Palestine and the Israelites who tried to kill the child Jesus, son of Mary, and there were three known ways that the traveler from Palestine can take to Egypt, as described in the Coptic historical shrines, but the family when it came did not take any of them, but they took another route of their own, and this is for fear of being caught, so the journey began through the road of Al-Arish, Al-Farma, Tal Basta and Masdar, and arrived in Babylon or ancient Egypt as it is now known, and then moved on, They went back to The Valley of Natrun for a while, and then they went back north, passing through wadi el-Natrun. Belbin and Samenoud are in the Delta and then back through the Sinai to Palestine again. All this historical information will be clear during Egypt culture tours. I encourage you now to check out our El Minya day tours. There are many monasteries that tell about the history of the holy family. You can also book our attractions in El Minya to enjoy the most famous historical places in El Minya such as Tel El Amarna.
The first land that received the escaped family is the land of Rafah, a border city between Egypt and Palestine and away from the city of Al-Arish to the east about 45 km, and traces of this journey and traces of the holy family were found, then the family moved to Al-Arish and then Farma, which was the last stop for them in Sinai, then moved to Kantara. Egypt was ruled then by Janice Tuanius, the Roman ruler, and then arrived near, and then went west to the Valley, then arrived near Ismailia. They arrived in the town of Heron Polis near Abu Kassir.
The journey continued until reaching "El Gharbia", where the city of Snood, the journey went to the village of Sakha ( Located in Kafr El Sheikh City ). I recommend heading to book our Egypt holy land travel packages. There you will discover the road of the holy family in detail and take many blessings. You will be entertained with many places such as Catherine monastery, Dahab and more.
The Holy Family later crossed the Nile River west to Desouk ( in Kafr El Sheikh City ) and headed south to Albahiyra, until they reached Tarana then wadi el-Natrun. They crossed the Nile River again south until they reached Kanater to Heliopolis, Matria, and Ain Shams in Cairo City. you can visit unique attractions in our Egypt Easter tours, So don't waste time and choose your Egypt trips.
Then went to the city of Manf and then the Bahasa. Then to Jabal al-Tair. After Abu Serja and The Muharraq. The Holy journey ended in Mount Tarnaka with a carved grotto and was the last leg of the family in Egypt, where it was reported in the church history books that the angel appeared to Youssef al-Najjar and ordered them to return to Palestine.
Egypt embraced the Holy Family, which granted its land, and trees to contain the holy family that blessed it and blessed its people in the Bible.

It is advisable to drink Bottled water during your entire holiday. That is why it is strongly advisable that you don't drink the tap water, and use it only for washing and brushing your teeth.

The high season for tourism is all year with winter and spring being peak season for cultural travels with lots of sightseeing. Weather in Egypt is perfect for many kinds of tourism, and if coming in June, July, and August, head for the seaside resorts. Those months are very warm with temperatures that can reach around 45C. and the humidity is about 70 to 80%, but it is bearable with the sea and large swimming pools nearby. So the period of the high summer season is also a bit busy as hotels fill up with tourists from all over the world looking for a bargain, lots of sunshine, diving, snorkeling, etc. It is also a primary vacation time in Europe. If you come in the deep summer season you can still enjoy it because you can always sightsee early in the morning and go again at night when the sunsets.

Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it's really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.

There are many Nile cruises. Not to name one but your choice depends on many things to put in mind such as the number of nights you want to spend on the cruiser, your budget, and the standard of the Nile cruise. We recommend you choose a 5-star luxury Nile cruise, and if you are looking for a private Nile River cruise you can choose Dahabiya cruises, it is only for the small-group tour, about 15 people. Most cruises have. There is another way of cruising the Nile, which is the Felucca boat. It is traditional and charming but it is cheap as long as it will be ok to sleep on the deck exposed to mosquitos and most of these boats do not have a toilet

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
