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.

More About

Day Tour to Giza Pyramids & Sakkara from Port Said

Transportation from Port Said Port
After our representative at Port Said Port greets you by name, you will board our luxurious air-conditioned coach. Stretch out and relax on plush leather seats for the three hour drive to Cairo. Police escorts ensure hassle-free progress along the highway. All that lies ahead is an exciting day of cultural encounters! Stay hydrated with chilled bottled water while nibbling snacks, and get excited for the sites you’ll experience along the way. Our safety and comfort is our top priority for smooth sightseeing.

Camel Rides at the Pyramids of Giza
Upon arrival in Giza, the first glimpse of those colossal Pyramids rising from the desert sands is sure to leave you awe-struck. What better way to take in the dramatic setting than with an exhilarating camel ride? Feel the sun-baked sands shift underfoot as these ships of the desert amble past graffiti-covered stones of legends. Your private escort will help arrange two rides for adventurous passengers. Snap away memorable photos while our certified guides answer questions and share rich histories.

Valley Temple and the Embodied Sphinx
After exploring Giza Plateau by foot, the tour continues down into its plains. At the concealed Valley Temple near the Sphinx, admire its towering columns and hieroglyphic-stamped ceilings. Then gasp in wonder at the human-headed Sphinx – revered guardian since antiquity. Legend recounts its body was coaxed from solid bedrock by hand. Now it watches ceaselessly as Egypt’s national emblem. Your Egyptologist ensures these thought-provoking exhibits inspire a new appreciation.

Lunch in Cairo and History-Steeped Sakkara
Before heading south, satisfy your hunger at an eatery at the city’s edge specializing in home-style cuisine. Fuelled and recharged, follow millennia of pharaohs’ sacred progression by driving to Sakkara necropolis. As the capital of Egypt during the early dynasties, here in Zoser’s Step Pyramid chambers you find humanity’s oldest surviving monumental stone structure and first pyramid. Adjacent Mastaba tombs disclose intriguingly elaborate burial customs in place long before the Giza Plateau came into play. These profound legacies reveal origins of dynastic Egypt.

Return to Port Said with Treasured Souvenirs
Time permitting on the fast-paced voyage, we make a scheduled break at a craft outlet so you can part with memorable gifts and handicrafts directly from their makers. All too soon our enriching adventure draws to a close as your guide closes out day’s highlights. Arriving portside, thank you for choosing Travel Joy Egypt – I wish you smooth sailing and hope to welcome you once more in future! Until next time.
