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.

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.
