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.

Private Day Tour To Abu Simbel From Aswan

Journey to Ancient Egypt’s Majesty at Dawn
Tucked safely within your cozy hotel room, you reluctantly rise from slumber as darkness still blankets Aswan. A new day is dawning that promises a extraordinary adventure etched forever in your memory. Graciously, our representative appears promptly to guide you toward the waiting vehicle below under the veil of night. As fellow travelers board with anticipation, excited whispers fill the air in hushed tones, none wanting to disturb the tranquil surroundings. Comfortably seated while savoring hot beverages and snacks provided, the journey begins heading north as the inky sky slowly lightens with the approaching sunrise.

Arrival at Abu Simbel in Roses’ Glow
Approaching the Temple site as dawn breaks, the faintest light illuminates majestic silhouettes looming ahead against pearly rose-hued skies. Bringing the vehicle to a gentle stop, our guide bids you all to disembark quietly and gaze upon the awe-inspiring sight that unfolds before eager eyes. Monumental seated statues of Ramesses II guard the entrance wearing enigmatic smiles, now subtly revealed in warm ochre tones. Camera shutters busy capturing ephemeral fleeting moments while whispers of wonder escape lips, none capable of looking away from such magnificence unveiled at nature’s splendid artistic hand.

Majestic Visions of Pharaoh’s Glory
Upon stepping inside the hypostyle hall housing towering sculpted figures, voices hush to a reverent whisper. Multi-toned rays of the rising sun play a brilliant dance upon the ornate carvings dominating impossibly high columns and ceilings glorifying the pharaoh and his lineage. Our guide’s eloquent Arabic and English words paint a vivid picture of the esoteric symbolism and intricate details within each scene for gathered guests in hushed attentiveness, further amplifying the mystic essence of this sacred space. None dare disrupt the serenity embracing all fortunate enough to witness Abu Simbel in complete solitude as a privileged few.

Queen Nefertari’s Gracious Majesty
Emerging from within the main sanctuary filled with sun god Ra’s mystical presence, a smaller temple adjacent invites discreet exploration with far fewer steps. Statues of the devoted royal couple watching over the entrance set an enchanting tone within. Upon silently crossing the threshold, one can envision Queen Nefertari and doting Ramesses II strolling arm in arm amid beautifully preserved scenes adorning the walls in vivid frescos capturing their idyllic lives together . Our guide shares insights of her status as Great Royal Wife, leaving guests awe-struck by this beloved ruler’s grace and power as Egypt’s most celebrated Queen.

Lingering in an Age of Magic
Far too soon, the hour arrives for your private visit to gently come to an end. Camera storage cards filled to bursting testify to an unforgettable experience few will ever know. Whispered conversations continue reflecting on absorbing myths and legends that shaped a glorious history that still stands strong today. Boarding the vehicle signaling departure with mixed emotions arise – joy at being part of such rare moments equally tempered by reluctance to leave this mystical haven inspired by splendid antiquities. The journey back to Aswan passes pleasantly reviewing lively discussions fuelled by wonder and enchantment certain to linger within hearts and memories for lifetimes to come.

Everlasting Impressions of Majesty Eternal
Alighting once more upon the familiar streets of Aswan brings a sense of surrealness, as if part of a vivid dream from which one is reluctant to awaken. Yet cameras hold fast proof of privileged private access to antiquity’s splendours at their most atmospheric and serene. Exchanging heartfelt farewells with newfound friends bonded through shared marvel over abundant hospitality, you retire fulfilled yet pensive, scenes playing ceaselessly within your mind’s eye. Abu Simbel now lives vividly in your soul, the magic of its mysteries gifting insight into that glittering age of antiquity along the mighty Nile that continues to enchant and inspire all those touched by its glory. Its grandeur will remain with you always, indelibly etched within your memory and heart.
