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.
