On Wednesday, the group was able to visit the Giza Plateau, home of the great pyramid! Everyone had the chance to enter the Great Pyramid and climb the long, sloping gallery to the burial chamber. Some of us have been waiting our whole lives for the experience! In addition, we toured the area, seeing the solar boat museum, the Sphinx, and the valley temple of Khafre. See for yourself!
OI Splendors of the Nile is a photographic and textual complement to the Oriental Institute's Splendors of the Nile program escorted by Dr. Nadine Moeller.
This trip is a great introduction to Egypt and a treat for anyone who wants to see Egypt through the eyes of a Nile traveler. We will experience many of the famous landmarks of Egyptian history as well as exclusive site visits and on-site learning.
