Our highly acclaimed specialist tours to Sinai are expertly led by wonderful guest speakers who share their wit and wisdom, providing insights to help us interpret the landscape, its history and people. They include Professor Janet Soskice, Professor in Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge and author of Sisters of Sinai: How Two lady Adventurers Found the Hidden Gospels, who leads our Historical Odyssey on foot and by camel through Sinai. By contrast our popular annual Adventure into Silence is based in one remote and beautiful desert valley, with special guest speaker Sara Maitland, author of the acclaimed Book of Silence.
What they say about our guest speakers:
“Janet Soskice is an endlessly fascinating storyteller, whose skill in bringing the past into the present so meaningfully is not only a remarkable asset, but helped to make the journey unforgettable. Each day was even more thrilling than the preceding one, with the climax at Mt Sinai itself delivered beyond expectation.”
Gabriel Somorjay, April 2011
“I can’t stress enough just how fantastic the whole experience was, I thought Sara did an excellent job in guiding us and pitching her input at just the right level.”
Dilip Varma, Adventure into Silence 2010
