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.
