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.

The tour begins at the monumental Karnak Temple Complex, one of the most iconic sites in Egypt. Spreading across over 100 hectares, this is truly a city of temples that showcases the highest achievements of ancient Egyptian architecture. As you pass between the towering pylons and step into the Great Hypostyle Hall, you will be stood in awe of its 134 enormous sandstone pillars, some rising to over 20 meters tall. Engraved on the walls are detailed carvings and hieroglyphs that tell epic stories from Egyptian mythologies. Wander through the courtyards and chapels and feel the immense power and glory of Egypt’s New Kingdom pharaohs who constructed and added to this complex over centuries.

Discover Luxor’s Heart at the Impressive Luxor Temple
In the late afternoon, make your way to Luxor Temple situated on the eastern bank of the Nile River.

As the sun begins its descent, its golden rays will dance gracefully on the towering columns and obelisks within the temple walls. Admire intricate carvings that narrate religious episodes and ceremonies held here in antiquity. Walk through the Avenue of Sphinxes that once lined the sacred pathway and experience this treasured site in all its majestic beauty.

Marvel at ornate wall paintings and hieroglyphs that were meant to guide the pharaoh’s spirit into the afterlife. Learn fascinating facts about the richest archaeological discovery in history made by Howard Carter in 1922.

Glimpse Egypt’s Remarkable Queen at Hatshepsut Temple
Conclude your tour in Luxor with a visit to Hatshepsut Temple. This female pharaoh came to power in 1473 BC and ruled as co-regent and pharaoh for over 20 successful years. Her temple stands as a lasting monument to her reign and accomplishments. Admire the symmetry and striking architecture that rises in three terraced platforms. Wander along the colonnades and take in iconic reliefs depicting Hatshepsut’s divine right to rule as a man.
