2019 Tour Banner

Following an acclaimed successful tour in March 2018, please join us for another unique tour with a dynamic team of leaders in the mysterious and beautiful heart of Egypt.

Chris Dunn, author of: "The Giza Power Plant" and "Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt" (now published in Arabic), will guide another group to examine the hard evidence that he discusses in both his books while holding discussions about reasonable, down-to-earth explanations for the anomalies and artifacts that are found throughout Egypt.

Since 1977, Chris had studied the incredible engineering and science of the Ancient pyramid builders, including their sophisticated use of sound. While crediting Sir William Flinders Petrie for his pioneering work in the 19th century, Chris has become world renowned for his practical engineering sense when describing advanced ancient stonework, including the symmetry and precision of the Ramses statues at Luxor, the boxes in the Serapeum and the Curved Stone at Abu Rawash Along with the exploration and examination of sophisticated stonework, this tour will also explore the advanced application of acoustics in the pyramids as well as the temples in the South.

Leading discussions on this topic is sound engineer Robert Vawter. Robert has spent a lifetime working with concert and theatrical sound systems in live venues large and small as well as recording studios. He also has a degree in Archaeology, and has spent decades studying ancient Egypt and the pyramids. In 1997, Robert mapped the frequencies found within the SenNeferU pyramid at Dashur, from which he composed “The SeNeferU Sequence”. His work has been cited in numerous books, including "The Giza Power Plant".

Hamed ElGendy and Mohamed Ibrahim

Facilitating and guiding this tour is well-known and charismatic Egyptian Egyptologist, Mohamed Ibrahim. Mohamed is one of a new breed of Egyptian Egyptologists who respects his roots and the education he received in university, but also accepts that there is much more to learn about his ancestors’ technical accomplishments. Mohamed, who is an expert at reading hieroglyphs, will provide historical and cultural context throughout the tour.

We are also delighted and privileged to have Mohamed's colleague, Hamed El Gendy, join us in Cairo. Hamed is a graduate of Cairo University Archaeological program and holds a position with the Ministry of Antiquities following in the footsteps of Zahi Hawass as the Director of the Great Pyramid. He has recently overseen and facilitated the Scan Pyramid Mission that revealed additional chambers within the Great Pyramid using muography. Hamed will join us at Giza and provide an update on this latest research and other activities in the area.

It is this team’s mission to provide travelers with a stimulating, educational and exciting experience. Each guest will receive a unique souvenir booklet that will provide each day’s itinerary and photographs of select artifacts and sites to be visited. Throughout the tour, Mohamed, Chris and Robert will provide information on the sites being visited in accordance with their areas of study. This information will be provided either on site and/or on the bus. Evening PowerPoint presentations will be scheduled as circumstances and time allows. The booklet will include space for notes, so questions can be jotted down for later discussion or, as appropriate, on site.

This tour has limited capacity and we anticipate that it will fill quickly. As there is already a high level of interest, we encourage you to make your reservation soon. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email at losttechtouregypt@gmail.com
