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.

Cairo in 2 days Amazing service since the first message. Omar is a great guy who will be available to answer any questions any time.

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.

Egypt 18 days itinerary !!! We were in Cairo for 20 days and Travel Joy made an 18-day itinerary for us visiting Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, Hurghada and Alexandria. Our entire tour was private, with guides in English and Spanish (they speak the perfect language). The manager, the guides, the drivers were very friendly, professionals and attentive to us at all times. They made our trip an unforgettable experience. We didn't have any problems, they were very punctual and professional. If you are thinking about traveling to Egypt Travel Joy I recommend that you do it with them, the private tours are totally worth it, the guides explain calmly, you can ask questions, take photos patiently, and enjoy each of the temples and places wonderful things that Egypt has! Thanks Travel Joy for making our trip unique! Don’t hesitate to contact them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

More About

Ras Muhammad Snorkel & Desert Safari

Marine Life Marvels Await
The tour begins with an early morning pickup from hotels in Sharm El Sheikh. A scenic drive takes guests to the stunning Ras Mohammed National Park located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula. Here, nestled between striking mountain cliffs and coral reefs, lies the Red Sea’s most biodiverse ecosystems teeming with colorful marine life. Expert guides provide a comprehensive briefing on reef conservation before guests don scuba gear to embark on a mesmerizing journey through this underwater world.

Corals Painted in Living Color
Snorkelers are greeted by a kaleidoscope of colors as they gently navigate past coral gardens and sea mounts. Vivid anemones shelter shy clownfish while curious schools of angelfish dance between soft feather-like colonies. In deeper areas, divers may spot green moray eels peering from crevices or hawksbill turtles gracefully gliding. Guides skillfully point out moray eels, lionfish and rare black coral structures. The clarity of waters allows seeing as deep as 30 meters, revealing ribbon eels undulating like underwater serpents over beds of delicate soft coral. Guests marvel at the sheer spectrum of life throughout this protected ecosystem.

Rolling Saharan Dunes Beckon
After a replenishing breakfast, guests reboard vehicles for a transfer east into the desert. As asphalt transitions to smooth sand, rolling yellow dunes emerge stretching endlessly towards a vast azure sky. A brief introduction by guides equips guests with safety knowledge before hopping aboard open-air quad bikes. Thrills await as riders launch across towering slopes, leaning into curves carved by centuries of wind. From high vantage points, sweeping panoramas unveil minute villages and oases amidst an ethereal landscape. Guests gain a newfound appreciation for desert-dwelling Bedouin folk and their innate navigation through this enchanting realm.

Bedouins Share Stories by the Fire
By late morning, a traditional Bedouin encampment nestled within the dunes comes into view. Guests are warmly welcomed into a large family tent where cushions and carpets await. Over sweet mint tea and biscuits, friendly Bedouin storytellers share folktales passed through generations involving magical desert wildlife, daring explorers and ancestral wisdom. Meanwhile, Bedouin women skillfully demonstrate weaving intricate textiles and leatherworks that have long sustained desert communities. New bonds form as guests gain insights into the oral history and resilience of these native peoples who have inhabited the Sahara for centuries.

Camels Carry Sunset Memories
As the sun sinks low on the horizon, it is time for a memorable camel ride. Guests are paired with gentle dromedaries to slowly meander amongst dunes painted vibrant yellow and orange hues. Cresting one peak rewards with panoramic coastal vistas while another reveals a serene oasis. Camels move in a rolling calm gate, providing a mystical intimacy with the desert landscape. Memories are made amongst familiar guides who hum traditional songs. Riders feel a sense of connection to ancestors who once relied on these ships of the desert to cross trackless sands. By the tour’s end, sun-kissed slopes glow amber ushering in the night sky.

Under Starry Skies, New Bonds
Back at the Bedouin camp, guests indulge in a feast fit for desert royalty. Fresh kebabs, ful medames (fava bean stew), salads and bread are laid out on long cloths. Local music and dance erupt as friendly guides, now more like family, engage guests in learning folk dances. Laughs and smiles fill the camp under a sky painted with more stars than seem possible. New relationships have formed based on experiences shared exploring this destination’s intriguing marine environments, stark desert terrain and uniquely resilient culture. For many, a profound appreciation and connection to this special region has blossomed – one that will endure long after memories of the glorious Ras Muhammad Snorkel and Desert Safari tour fade.
