          Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Luxor or your Nile Cruise to visit Abydos Temple, The site was the most important religious center of the ruler of the dead. Because of its association with the afterlife, many Egyptian kings constructed cenotaphs at Abydos, including the great New Kingdom cenotaph temple of Seti l Begun by Seti l and completed by Ramesses ll , This temple was built of fine white limestone and is one of the most impressive religious structures in Egypt. Then continue to Dandara, the area in which the temple is located. Is that of ancient Tantere( Greek Tentyris), a provincial capital and important religious site during several period of Egyptian history. The temple of Hathor which stands at the site today dates to the Graeco-Roman period, however, and is one of the best-preserved temples of this period in Egypt. Later you will be driven back to your hotel or your Nile Cruise in Luxor.

          Tour luxor to aswan
          I went with my partner we took the 5 days and 4 nights tour from luxor to Aswan, our guide was jhon, our experience was amazing, every place we went he gave us all the necessary information about egypt and the place we were visiting, once he finished telling us he gave us enough time to take pictures, if we had doubts all were well explained, we never took a tour with animals and it is appreciated because the conditions of some animals are quite sad, we felt quite safe. Overall the tour was excellent and our guide Jhon an Egyptologist who knows a lot about the subject 10/10.

          Excelent trip!
          100% recommended tour! We had a very satisfying and exciting experience. As for the cruise I can say that we had a beautiful trip, an excellent crew and facilities that are very well. I must highlight the work of our guide John who at all times was very friendly and willing to solve all our doubts (which were quite a few). During the tours he managed to contextualize us historically, demonstrating the quality of his knowledge and managing to convey his passion for the history of Egypt, so we leave with a part of him and his stories back to our homes. Also, it is worth mentioning that he takes care of every detail at all times to make the trip a very pleasant experience. Also, to add that during our stay in Egypt we always felt safe and never had any mishap or unforeseen event that could make us worry. In the places we visited we always saw police protection and security controls that make you feel at safe at all times.

          Excellent tour company and trip
          I planned this family trip to Egypt last August and wondered if travel to Egypt was still safe given the events in Gaza. After research I decided that Egypt is still a safe place to travel in and my trip there confirmed it. My family and I felt 100% safe at all times during our trip and Journey to Egypt provided 5* service at all times. I can't imagine making this trip without them. All of my pre-trip communication was answered promptly and every detail taken care of professionally. We were greeted at the airport as promised and Journey to Egypt's wonderful staff took care of us, our bags, transportation and sightseeing throughout our trip. Our guides were very knowledgeable and accommodated all of our requests regarding additional sights we wanted to visits, start times and shopping stops. They provided us with cold water for every excursion and we traveled in a new, clean, comfortable van with excellent drivers. The Nile cruise boat was very clean and comfortable and the Cairo hotel overlooked the pyramids witha beautiful view from our balcony and was 5*.i highly recommend booking your Egypt trip with Journey to Egypt.

          Nile River Cruise
          The Tour guide JOHN was excellent, explaining everything and answering all questions with knowledge. Egypt right now appears to be quite safe to travel. We were lucky enough to be upgraded on our tour boat from 5 star to 5 star plus and the vessel MS BLUESHADOW 1 was very comfortable and meals very good but we had problems staying connected to their internet even though we had paid the top rate.

          Very successful, enjoyable and fulfilling time for our visit to Lower Egypt
          The cruise was a pleasure - the boat Blue Shadow 1 was 5 star and the MD of Journey to Egypt had upgraded us from a 4 star to 5 star. The excellent staff, facilities and food were of excellent standard. It might have been a bonus to have access to a general area for teas and coffee making facilities and easier internet access. I was more significantly impressed by our tour guide from Journey to Egypt - John - whose extensive knowledge of Egypt was as a result of his degree in Egyptology. He was able and keen to answer quite extensive questions beyond the information 0provided and significantly more than one might expect about the time available and the tours of the Temples and Tombs we visited. Further , John made arrangement of transport and the access to sites absolutely seamless . He made sure we arrived at sites early and arranged the tours so that we had the least crowds possible to view the sites. His reminder that even 5 minutes at the early part of the day could make a big difference which we came to realise really could make a difference to the numbers of other people attending g the sites. He went further by assisting us to arrange tours & transport for additional family after the tours we had arranged. A very highly expert tour guide! Thank you John for making this tour and cruise so successful and such a pleasure.

          Luxor to Aswan cruise with guide Mena
          Our experience with Mena was truly memorable. What set him apart from others was definitely his extremely thoughtful personality. From the water and chips he carried for us the morning he met us, down to organising medicines when I needed them and finally to even making sure we reached our eventual destination after the cruise - no effort was too much and every detail was looked into. His knowledge of the various sites we visited was great and he was able and willing to answer the multitude of questions we kept throwing his way. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as an extremely trusted guide and support in Egypt.

          Amazing nile cruise experience with Mena and Journey to Egypt Travel
          My wife and I had the most incredible Nile Cruise experience with Journey to Egypt Travel. Mena was our tour guide and we can honestly say he was the best guide for that we’ve had on any trip. We missed our arrival flight but he managed to rearrange the itinerary to make sure we didn’t miss anything. He went the extra mile to make sure we had all the required information and accommodated any special requests we had. We would highly recommend Mena and Journey to Egypt travel for anyone interesting in touring the Nile, which was truly a trip of our lifetime.

With a keen understanding of the flow of tourist traffic, Joo expertly orchestrated our itinerary to minimize wait times and maximize our exploration. His professionalism, dedication, and genuine care for our group left an indelible impression. We would highly recommend to anyone embarking on their own Egyptian adventure.

          Egypt February 2024
          Recently visited Egypt at the end of February and had a great time. We toured with Journey to Egypt for part of the trip and everything was run smoothly and taken care for us. Our guide, Mena, was very informative and helpful in all aspects of the journey.

          Perfect Nile River itinerary and amazing guide!
          We have been very lucky to travel to a few countries from the US and the 3 Night Aswan to Luxor Nile Cruise with Journey to Egypt was one of the best trips we have ever taken. It was a wonderful combination of once in a lifetime sightseeing combined with peaceful relaxation, and the best tour guide (John) we have ever had! Safety: We did a lot of research prior to going and honestly, we found that all concerns over visiting Egypt are from a lack of information and an over generalization of the country’s geographical location. Egypt is a peaceful country and we felt very safe the entire time, even safer than we have in some large European cities. And once you’re on the cruise from Aswan to Luxor, it’s countryside-like sailing with beautiful scenery. Journey to Egypt/Guide: Before choosing our tour company, I combed through hundreds and hundreds of reviews, and one thing that stood out about Journey to Egypt was that it had positive reviews AND unlike other companies - 100% of people said they’d recommend them to a friend. I can absolutely see why. John, our guide, was honestly the best guide we’ve ever had. He has the perfect style and personality for a tour guide - plenty of information, but not too much talking and every detail of the trip perfectly executed. I won’t give away all his secrets, but he thinks of everything small and large, and we are so grateful we had him. He has set a new bar for our expectations! Boat: Our boat (M/S A Sara) was excellent. The vessel had nice finishes and everything was very clean. We consistently saw people cleaning and polishing during our stay, as well. The beds were comfortable and the shower had more pressure than the Airbnb we stayed at before arriving! The food was served buffet style and had many good options at every meal. The staff were really friendly and attentive, too. I appreciated that the policy is to tip at the end of the cruise, so you never felt pressured to be tipping, which is helpful in Egyptian culture where tips are highly sought after. I’m not sure if we’ve ever had a trip go so perfectly. It was amazing and I would highly recommend it.

          Great family journey in Egypt
          We booked our trip with Journey to Egypt after a friend had reccomended it to me; Total of 12 days in Egypt, from Cairo to Aswan, Abu Simbel, 3 nights on the boat, Luxor, to finish with a relaxing time in Hurghada. Daddy with his 2 favorite travellers (11 and 13) First, the logistic was perfect. From arrival in Cairo, every transfer from one location in private mini-van, side activities like Hot air Balloon, helping us finding local restaurants, helping us negotiate in the souks, the team at Journey to Egypt is really going the extra mile to make it a memorable trip. They stay connected through Watsapp daily to make sure everything is perfect. But what really made this trip exceptional- and it really was - were the 2 guides that helped us navigating through the sites, temples, telling us the history in a perfect English. Kudos to John that made our visits around Aswan, Abu Simbel and Luxor a great adventure. Answering our hundreds of questions, he was of great company and I highly recommend him! We learned so much!! And visiting Cairo and the pyramids would not have been the same without without our guide Mayer. His energy, his smile, his enthusiasm made visiting these wonders of the world an unforgettable experience. Thanks to the whole team at Journey to Egypt. Myself and my kids cannot be happier about these amazing vacations. John and Mayer, you will remain part of our memories when remembering all the great places you made us discover

          Journey to Egypt organised our 9 day trip to Egypt beautifully. They organised our visas, hotels, internal airfares and Nile Cruise. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly I cannot sing their praises highly enough. 10 out of 10 from us.

        I am so happy we stayed an extra day to include these two incredible temples with our memories. The main pyramids are amazing of course, but these are so detailed and full of room after room of gorgeous detailing that is just breathtaking. We definitely enjoyed them even more than the museums because of their authenticity. If you're even thinking about taking this tour the answer is yes. Lunch was included and was absolutely even better than our dinner the night before at our hotel.
