Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power.

Feedback from previous Megalithomania Egypt Tours

"To say we enjoyed the Egypt Origins trip with Megalithomaniacs in 2022 would be an understatement. The tour company, Soul of Egypt Travel, did an outstanding job of making sure we had a seamless and completely orchestrated holiday. Food, accommodations, and travel details were stress free. As far as the hosts and the content; it was all beyond expectation. Our Egyptian guides, and guest speakers, added amazing depth to the experience at every sight we visited. The ‘private’ access was not limited to the Osirion and the Great Pyramid, but included many little add-ons at each location that clearly were excluded from other tour itineraries’ and were largely orchestrated on demand by our guides based on the group preference. Although this was my first visit to Egypt I am very glad to have spent it with a group of people that were so keen and well versed on the content, history, spirituality, and mythology of Egypt that an association like Megalithomanics attracts. I look forward to continuing my exploration of the ancient world on future Megalithomaniac tours." - Mr A. Stacey

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a wonderful trip. I had high hopes for the tour, and it really did exceed my expectations. The organisation was great from start to finish. The knowledge and insights shared at each of the sites and the talks were really interesting, and made the trip much richer than I could have imagined. So thank you to Soul of Egypt Travel, Megalithomania, and to each of you for the part you played in such a memorable experience." - Nicola D.

"Thanks to Megalithomania for truly epic tour of Egypt and Jordan! The list of highlights is way too long to mention. Suffice to say we got to see more than expected, learned more than expected, and had the pleasure of doing all this in a great travel group of fascinating people. The insights from Hugh, J.J., Jim, Yousef, and the local guides made seeing all these sights for the first time even more exciting. We loved the combination of hotels and the Nile cruise. Getting to walk, climb, and crawl in the Great Pyramid, Bent Pyramid, Osiris Shaft, around the Sphinx, and other areas was amazing. We’re so happy we did the Jordan add-on. So many things to see in Jordan, still, Petra was even more remarkable than we imagined. Hope to see you all on a future trip! - Steve Sadler & Barbara Patrick, USA

"This was the best holiday trip experience in my life so far! Had lots of laughs and fun and I was absolutely stunned and mesmerised by the incredible historical ancient sites and captivated by the remarkable discoveries! I learned so much With your great knowledge insights and will remember this trip and you as a group / tour guides and all the tour hosts ,Forever! The choice of accommodation was impressive and meals was delicious . Thank you Soul of Egypt tours for your excellent arrangements. It was worth every dollar paid for this tour. Highly recommended! Thank you each one in the tour group for everyday’s friendly smiles and chats and I would love if ever it could be possible a reunion with the same group lol! Take care..maybe will see some of you again in the future". - Lariana, UK

"That was the best trip ever! I echo Lariana's hope that we all could get together again sometime. To a person, this was a wonderful, truly compatible and friendly group. The best!" - Aleta and Dave, USA

"Our Megalithomania tour to Egypt and Jordan was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! It was such a special trip shared with a group of like minded souls all interested in searching for the truth about these ancient civilizations. I am an ancient history addict and love to explore alternative theories about the origins of civilization. Hugh Newman, Jim Vieira, Yousef Awyan, and JJ Ainsworth guided and informed our journey every step of the way. It was so special to hear cutting edge theories from experts in the field! I learned a lot and was able to ask many questions, which was so fulfilling! We are definitely booking another Megalithomania tour soon!" - Katy and Jorge Montanez, Mexico/US

"Well what an amazing holiday, still resonating now with me as I'm sure it is with you too. Nobody does it like Megalithomania, thanks to Hugh and Jj, Jim Vieira, the Soul of Egypt team; Amro, Ahmed our wonderful guides; Yousef, Ehab, Adel, we walked betwwen worlds together. Great hotels, opulent dining all in stunning locations and in really good company which meant I may have started that journey alone but it ended with fond farewells to a couple of dozen or so new friends, thanks for putting up with me!
