Perfect trip Toda nuestra estancia en Egipto fue increíble gracias a Travel Joy. Se aseguraron de que mi mamá y yo pasáramos los mejores 12 días recorriendo Cairo, Aswan, Luxor y Hurghada. Kero y Emily estuvieron siempre pendientes de que todo saliera bien y que la coordinación del viaje fuera excelente! Además nos ayudaron con todas las reservas y con cada favor que les pedimos durante nuestra estadía. No podemos estar más felices de haber tenido a Mito y a Mohamed como nuestros guías. Hablan excelente español y contestaron todas nuestras preguntas acerca de los templos. Sin duda regresaremos a Egipto y volveremos a escoger a Travel Joy como nuestro host. Nos vamos muy contentas y sintiéndonos como si hubiéramos estado con amigos estos días.

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

Egypt 8 Days Tour

Discovering Giza’s Royal Treasures

The full-day exploration of Giza begins at the threshold of one of the ancient world’s greatest wonders – the towering Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus. Towering over 150 feet tall, these monumental structures were erected as monuments to the pharaohs’ power and Egyptian ingenuity. Guests marvel at their sheer scale and perfection of form before encountering the enigmatic Great Sphinx, with its lion’s body and pharaoh’s head, sitting as sentinel since ancient times. Nearby lies the Valley Temple where pharaoh worshippers made offerings. Continuing to Saqqara, the fascinating Step Pyramidcomplex reveals early advances in funerary architecture. Memphis Museum artifactsincluding carvings and the colossal statue of Ramses II offer a glimpse into royal life.

Aswan’s Storied Landmarks Along the Nile

Aswan marks the first southern destination, introduced through its landmarks harnessing the Nile’s might. The colossal High Dam came as both an engineering triumph enabling agricultural growth, yet brought loss through displaced monuments like Abu Simbel. Nearby, the elegant island Temple of Philae maintains its beauty despite relocation, with carved columns and statues honoring Isis and Hathor. Another monumental feat is witnessed at the Unfinished Obelisk, showcasing the skills of Egyptian stonemasons. Before boarding the luxury cruise, guests gain insight into Aswan’s significance at the crossroads of empires.

Paying Homage to Kings at Abu Simbel

Rising before dawn, travelers journey to the granite Temples of Abu Simbel, truly among Egypt’s most iconic monuments. Under the light of the rising sun, Ramses II and Nefertari receive living sacrifices of garlands in their massive facades. Within, colossal statues sit enthroned as eternal guardians overlooking the shrines. The precision stonecutting defies belief even with modern tools. Considered ancient Egypt’s most perfect temple, this divine location became a symbol of national pride when miraculously rescued from flooding. Returning with the sun now high, visitors comprehend why Abu Simbel was thus vital to projecting the pharaoh’s power and longevity through the ages.

Cruising in Luxury between Mighty River Temples

After Aswan’s explore, guests board a five-star cruise vessel embarking on a journey of discovery down the legendary Nile. Each passing landscape hides more mysteries as the ship calls at major riverine temples. Kom Ombo is unique due to its symmetry, with two separate halls of worship for the crocodile god Sobek and sky deity Haroeris. Then majestic columns of Ptolemaic-era Edfu Temple seem to extend endlessly skyward. On board, gourmet dining and comfortable cabins allow total relaxation between destinations. Through this curated blend of notable landmarks and leisurely river travel, travelers gain unique vistas and perspectives on ancient Egyptian kingship along the storied banks of their life-giving river.
