I can't say enough good things about High End Journeys. We visited so many wonderful places, both the usual tourists sites and some lesser visited spots that you wouldn't see with other tour companies.
Our guests can enjoy a camel ride out in the Egyptian desert in an exclusive visit and admire the Sphinx away from the crowds
Not only did we see incredible sights like the Nile, the pyramids, and the Mediterranean, but we learned about Egypt’s history and culture.
We take our guests on a private opening to the Egyptian Museum after normal hours
They keep you safe and comfortable while seeing the most amazing sites. Luxury is affordable with High End Journeys and I would not visit Egypt with any other company Thank you for the memories & the experience
Our guests can explore royal places like the Abdeen Palace and Manial Palace at their leisure with private tours to these palaces
We brought our family on a 1 week tour of Egypt with High End Journeys. They did an amazing job of showing us this incredible civilization which has well preserved temples and buildings as old as 5,000 years!
