Overview & Tour Leader



Join Dallas Theological Seminary on a journey of a lifetime as we embark on an Egyptian adventure February 29 – March 9, 2024, in celebration of the DTS Centennial!

We will start in Cairo and explore the Great Pyramids of Giza and the extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum. We will also trace the Biblical narrative that dates back thousands of years from Old Testament to New Testament scripture. Before boarding the exclusive Historia River Cruise ship, we will enjoy insider access to the Valley of the Kings under the dark sky of night. Our cruise will take us down the Nile as we explore ancient temples, monuments, and islands. Then we fly further into the interior of Egypt to the fascinating site of Abu Simbel to see the temple dedicated to Pharaoh Rameses II and his wife Nefetari. Before heading home, you have the option of continuing on an extension to the foot of Mount Sinai! All land accommodations are five star.

And of course, our time together will be filled with powerful Biblical teaching from DTS President, Mark Yarbrough, who will bring rich devotions and biblical insights.

This is a bucket list adventure you don’t want to miss!
