EXCELLENT ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!! It's a shame that it can only be given 5 stars, because I would like to give it 20 stars for the excellent service they offered me. I wholeheartedly recommend Travel Joy Egypt, from the first message their kindness and willingness to help me has been their personal trademark. I am a woman and I traveled alone to Cairo for 5 days, and I have never felt so well cared for and safe, this thanks to this tourism company that cared from the first moment to make me feel comfortable, they always knew how to adapt to my needs. Omar is an excellent advisor, very kind, patient, quick to respond and has been a key player in coordinating all the details of my trip. Hesham, my assigned Spanish guide, 10/10, he is an EXCELLENT guide, his level of Spanish is too good, he is very patient too, and he is also very intelligent with everything related to Egyptian culture, he always had an answer to all my questions . The driver of the vehicle was very friendly and spoke English. The car is always clean, with air conditioning and with window protectors for the sun. They always arrived on time and invited me to eat Egyptian snacks, I really appreciated this! I am not a person who repeats the same destination but I am sure that Egypt will be an exception, I want to return with my family and without a doubt we will take the same service with Travel Joy Egypt. Thanks for everything !!! Andrea

Perfect trip Our entire stay in Egypt was amazing thanks to Travel Joy. They made sure my mom and I had the best 12 days touring Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada. Kero and Emily were always making sure that everything went well and that the trip coordination was excellent! They also helped us with all the reservations and with every favor we asked for during our stay. We couldn't be happier to have had Mito and Mohamed as our guides. They speak excellent Spanish and answered all of our questions about the temples. We will definitely return to Egypt and choose Travel Joy as our host again. We leave very happy and feeling as if we had been with friends these days.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.

12 Days Exceptional Tour in Egypt

Discovering Cairo’s Treasures
Over the first two days of the tour, guests will experience the rich history of Egypt’s vibrant capital city Cairo. After arriving at their 5-star hotel, the first stop will be the iconic Giza Pyramids and Sphinx. Dating back over 4,500 years, these colossal architectural wonders give a glimpse into the advanced engineering marvels created by the ancient Egyptians. No other monument encapsulates Egypt’s mythical past quite like the Great Pyramids. Guests will marvel at their sheer scale and precision before exploring the mysterious Valley Temple. In the afternoon, the tour will continue at the Egyptian Museum, housing over 100,000 artifacts from Egypt’s Pharaonic era including treasures from King Tutankhamun’s tomb. By night, guests can soak in Cairo’s atmosphere over a traditional galley dinner cruise on the River Nile.

Discovering Marvels in Middle Egypt
On day 3, guests embark on a panoramic road trip south from Cairo to the fertile basin of Middle Egypt. First stop is the natural oasis of Faiyum, home to the country’s oldest lake Qarun. Here colorful lakeside views and the mystique of Wadi Rayan’s waterfalls await discovery. Continuing on, the next destination is the city of El Minya for a two-night stay. The area flourished as an early center of Egyptian culture and trade, as seen through remarkable tombs and temples at archaeological sites including Tuna El Gabal, El Ashmunein, and Beni Hassan. On day 4, one ancient city awaits – Tel El Amarna, founded by pharaoh Akhenaten as the new capital of the religious revolution known as Atenism.

Mysteries of Luxor and the West Bank
After breakfast on day 5, guests board their air-conditioned coach for the journey further south to the temple city of Luxor. Here begins 4 nights onboard a luxury Nile cruiser, the ideal way to explore both banks in style and comfort. Day 6 sees the immense Karnak Temple complex and Luxor Temple by moonlight, highlighting Luxor’s religious significance. The following day, guests cross to the dramatic West Bank for one of the tour’s highlights – the Valley of the Kings. Wandering among the tombs of New Kingdom pharaohs including Ramses VI and Amenhotep III offers a insight into ancient burial customs. No visit to Luxor is complete without Hatshepsut’s grand temple at Deir el-Bahari, built by Egypt’s greatest female ruler over 3,500 years ago.

Cruising between Epic Temples
Days 8 and 9 are spent cruising north along the world’s longest river, the mighty Nile, with guided excursions to iconic sites along the way. At Edfu, the epitome of Egypt’s stone temple architecture awaits within its colossal pylons and well-preserved reliefs. Continuing upstream, Kom Ombo is a rare ‘double temple’ dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek as well as the sky deity Haroeris. Aswan is next, famous for its striking granite obelisks and temples such as the Ptolemaic-era Philae Temple, one of the country’s most beautiful. However, the piece de resistance comes on the morning of day 10, with a short flight taking guests to Abu Simbel – the twin rock-cut temples of Ramesses II, an architectural feat to rival any other monument in Egypt.

Wonders of Aswan and Journey’s End
The penultimate day 11 begins with the impressive Aswan Dam before exploring two awe-inspiring monuments. First is the Unfinished Obelisk, partially carved from red Aswan granite that would have stood over 40 meters tall had it been erected – a testimony to ancient engineering skills. Nearby at the Nubian Museum, precious artifacts recovered from the rising waters of Lake Nasser pay homage to Nubia’s shared history with Egypt over millennia. A final lunch is enjoyed before the airport transfer and evening flight back to Cairo for one last night. On the tour’s last morning, day 12, guests will have time to independently explore more of Cairo before the airport departure signifying the end of an unforgettable journey through Egypt’s wonders, made complete through Travel Joy Egypt’s excellent services and knowledgeable guides every step of the way.
