About
A journey that takes you to explore the wonders of the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt. We will take you to Dahshour, where they first attempted to build a true Pyramid, a hidden gem that is less visited by tourists. Afterwards, we will explore Saqqara, where we learn more about the oldest stone structure in the history. Top up your day by visiting the Giza plateau where the last remaining wonder of the ancient world; for nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry and sheer bulk of the Giza Pyramids have invited the obvious questions: ‘How were we built, and why?’. Centuries of research have given us parts of the answer. On this day, we will answer them all!

December 2021 was my second trip to Egypt. I had such a great experience with High End Journeys a few years ago that when my Friend said she wanted to go to Egypt, I did not even consider a different company. Ramez and his co-workers are fantastic. We spent a total of 13 days in Egypt doing many of these trips all along the Nile. Everyone was fantastic. Hotels, guides, and of course the sites of Egypt are 2nd to none. Now is a great time. Egypt is every bit as safe as your hometown. Prices are fantastic and the crowds are still relatively low. Great trip. Highly recommend.

Abear and Ramez were amazing! We greatly enjoyed our tours and would gladly recommend them based only on that, but they went above and beyond by helping us tack down missing luggage and work through the complexities of Covid requirements. Even after our excursion had ended, they continue to provide amazing service; they treated us like family!

High End Journeys was amazing! Our touring was planned perfectly with warm, knowledgeable, professional guiding and expedited entry to every museum s x historic site… we are so glad we chose this special company to plan and lead our family trip! We also used High End Journeys to plan our cruise along the river Nile … and took our last few days in Fayoum a desert oasis with sand surfing and fun desert safari in 4x4 a great way to end the trip with our kids and teenagers ,,, we had a fantastic experience!

Amazing experience with High End Journeys in Cairo. They helped us to coordinate everything, guided us through the city, while still providing an authentic, local experience. They went above and beyond helping when some of our luggage was lost, and getting all the right things scheduled for Covid testing. Everything was fabulous and we wish we would have booked with this team in our adventures throughout the rest of Egypt. Highly recommended! Thank you Ramez and team! Simply outstanding!

We just returned from 17 days with High End Journeys as our guides. There are not enough words to thank them for this amazing trip of a lifetime! We rode camels in front of the great pyramids of Giza, sailed the Nile with incredible views of the banks at dawn and dusk, climbed inside pyramids, hiked to tombs, toured temples, rode carriages through the markets of Luxor and Cairo, rode jeeps through sand dunes, sand surfed, visited an oasis, scuba dove in the Red Sea, soaked up the sun in Sharm El Sheik, ate in local eateries, and enjoyed the most amazing authentic entertainment, but most of all we will never be able to thank them enough for sharing their most amazing Egyptologist with us. Ola started as a stranger and quickly became part of the family. She accompanied us every step of the way… sharing her extensive knowledge, patience, local connections, kindness, translations, and off the beaten path shops, restaurants, and adventures so we could fully immerse ourselves in Egyptian culture. An absolute trip of a lifetime! I have no idea how we would have navigated and coordinated so many adventures without them.

Truly trusted travel specialists who took care of our five-day tour of Egypt, as part of a more extensive tour of the Middle East. From when we touched down in Cairo from NY until they ensured our connection to Dubai, everything was handled with the utmost professionalism, trust, and care. We saw and learned so much from our private EgyptologistS, who were with us every day, covering Cairo, Giza, Aswan, and Luxor, so we completely understood all the ancient wonders of the world. Highly recommend Ramez and his team. Amazing, experience for my family!

This trip reminded me how important it is to be driven by curiosity not by a book, to know that there is always time to make friends a to have a great evening despite not having a reservation. To be mesmerized by the sweat and the sour, the cold and the warm and to know that the world is an amazing place and once Cairo was the craddle for civilization.

I contacted High End Journeys to help make my extended family vacation in Cairo a memorable one, and they did not disappoint. In addition to helping me find the perfect AirBnB for me, my wife, and four young children, they also set up a luxury 3-day trip in Luxor . Our Egyptologist tour guide, George, took us on fascinating tours of Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut's Temple. He did an excellent job of making ancient history come to life for everyone, even my children. The Luxor accommodations included a beautiful Nile-side resort with two pools that my kids thoroughly enjoyed. To save money, we chose to drive from Cairo to Luxor, which took about 7 hours, but HEJ provided us with a spacious 16 passenger van that made the trip very comfortable.
Insider tip: we traveled in June, when the temperature topped at around 110 degrees. Because of this, we started our tours early (7:30am) and in the evening.

We also did the Dahshour and Saqqara trip with HEJ. These two sites are not as famous as Giza, but definitely worth a visit. In fact, we enjoyed the Bent Pyramid of Dahshour more than the others because there were no vendors, few tourists, and we were able to climb into the pyramid for no additional cost. The trek into the pyramid was moderately difficult because it included descents, climbing up stairs, crawling through smaller spaces, and ultimately ended in a spacious chamber. My family loved this adventure! Thank you, High End Journeys, for making our month-long stay in Egypt so memorable.

High End Journeys treats you like an honored guest. They go out of their way to cater to your needs making your travel to Egypt an unforgettably enjoyable experience. That was my experience on their 9-day tour. I am a travel Innovator and am planning a group tour of over 100 people to Egypt in 2022. I trust my people with High End Journeys.
