Lake Van

Noah’s Ark to Egypt to Mount Sinai Tour

Kingdom of Urartu

Urartu is cognate with the Biblical Ararat. In Genesis 8:4 Noah’s ark is said to have landed in the “mountains of Ararat.” Urartu is a geographical region commonly used as the exonym for the Iron Age kingdom centered around Lake Van in the historic Armenian Highlands. The kingdom rose to power in the mid-9th century BC, but went into gradual decline and was eventually conquered by the Iranian Medes in the early 6th century BC.

Nearby is the Van Museum the most important museum in the region featuring many artifacts from the Urartian era.

Located in eastern Turkey, Lake Van is a saline lake with no outlet. Lake Van is fed by numerous small streams, which descend from the surrounding mountains. The lake measures 75 miles (120 km) long, 50 miles (80 km) wide and covers an area of 1450 sq. miles (3755 sq. km). The waters of Lake Van are rich in sodium carbonate and other salts which are extracted by evaporation and used as detergents. The brackish waters support only one species of fish.Our tour group on Lake Van.Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey.

Noah’s Ark

The Durupinar boat-shaped formation (Noah’s ark) was discovered on Sept. 11, 1959, by Turkish Army Captain Ilhan Durupinar. This boat-shaped formation is believed to be the buried remains of Noah’s ark (Nuh’un Gemisi) that landed in the Mountains of Ararat according to the Bible (Genesis 8:4) and according to the Qur’an (11:44) on Al-Judi which locals in the nearby village will tell you is a name given to this area as well. The main research and interest in this site started in the 1970s through the mid-1990s due to the work of American explorer and researcher, Ron Wyatt, and others including Turkish scientists. In 2014 and 2019 further independent private geophysical surveys were done again on the ark formation showing layers and interesting angular structures below the ground. The new GPR data shows parallel lines and angular structures 8 to 20 feet down. These parallel lines and right angles below the surface are something you would not expect to see in a natural, geologic formation. Interestingly, the boat formation has also been confirmed to be the exact length of the ark given in the Bible (Genesis 6:15).

Come see this special site and learn about the evidence for yourself in person. See where civilization restarted! Only on our tours do we go over all the historical research up to the most recent work done on the site.

Magna is a lush oasis on the coast of the Gulf of Aqaba in NW Saudi Arabia with a strong tradition of Moses being there. In the past 12 springs of water bubbled up among the palm trees and tall grass.

Across from the oasis is an ancient Midianite fortress on a hill protecting this important water source. In Saudi archaeological literature this location is listed as an important Midianite site.

“They moved from Elim and camped by the Red Sea.” (Numbers 33:10)

Rock of Horeb

Noah’s Ark to Egypt to Mount Sinai Tour

One of the most breaktaking stops in this tour is the giant split rock sitting high on a hill on the western side of the Jabal al Lawz mountain range. Is this the Rock of Horeb that Moses struck and rivers of water gushed forth for the complaining Israelites and their flocks and herds? In a desolate region with no water this rock stands out as a possible reminder to the miracles of God in the exodus journey. Climb the hill. Make your way thru the split and see the wind and water erosion marks around the base of the giant boulder! A must see stop on your journey through the Land of Midian!

“‘Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.’ And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.” (Exodus 17:6)

Mount Sinai

Noah’s Ark to Egypt to Mount Sinai Tour

Mount Sinai

“And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.” (Exodus 19:17,18)

One of the most solemn scenes described in the Bible is the giving of the law by God. From a mountaintop God spoke audibly with His people and the earth shook while fire and smoke ascended to the very heavens. Is Jabal Maqla in the mountain range of Jabal al Lawz in the Land of Midian the location of the real Mount Sinai? Are local traditions correct that this is Jabal Musa? Come see the location for yourself and explore the archaeological sites around the base of what more and more are believing to be the true Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia! Be among the few who have ventured out to this remote location now that tourist visas are available.

As you walk among the sand and boulders and gaze up upon the loftly blackened peaks ask yourself, “Did any people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? Out of heaven He let you hear His voice, that He might instruct you; on earth He showed you His great fire, and you heard His words out of the midst of the fire.” (Deuteronomy 4:33,36)

Your Tour Guide

Step into a thrilling adventure with Andrew Jones, your seasoned guide, who has been relentlessly investigating the exodus journey since his middle school years. Andrew’s passion ignited when he learned about Ron Wyatt’s monumental discoveries – the true Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia and the authentic Red Sea crossing at Nuweiba, Egypt on the Gulf of Aqaba.

Since 2000, Andrew has plunged into Egypt’s enchanting mystery, traversing its land numerous times. The year 2016 marked a milestone when he had the privilege to explore the sites in ancient Midian, Northwest Arabia, including the genuine Mount Sinai.

With the veil lifted, Andrew embraced the opportunity, journeying through the terrains of Midian more than 20 times, amassing over 150 days of ground-breaking exploration. By February 2020, he had embarked on solitary journeys across Midian, covering an astonishing 20,000 miles, not including his explorations of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.

Our exclusive tours offer you unparalleled access to local boats, journeying across the Red Sea crossing, offering you a unique perspective of the historical site. This immersive experience is far more than a superficial photo opportunity at Mount Sinai or the Red Sea crossing. It promises a wealth of in-depth research into the exodus route, allowing you to tread the path the Israelites would have undertaken.

These tours are brimming with invaluable information gleaned from Andrew’s hands-on experience and meticulous research. You’ll delve into the varied theories surrounding the exodus route, weighing the advantages and drawbacks of each potential camping spot during the exodus. Engage with local traditions and the latest scholarly insights into the exodus.

Don’t miss this opportunity to delve into the comprehensive research conducted by Andrew and others on the exodus route in Egypt and the location of Mount Sinai. Follow in the footsteps of Moses and the Israelites as they journeyed from the Land of Goshen in the Nile Delta in ancient Egypt to the authentic Mount Sinai in ancient Midian. Witness the rumored grain pits and the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, constructed by Imhotep, who some believe to be Joseph. Experience the sites, absorb the theories, and be the judge!
