High End Journeys is a boutique luxury travel agency, started by Egyptologists and best friends, Ahmed Aziz and Ramez Salama. Both share a passion for travel and draw on their combined industry experience of 34 years to deliver a personalized itinerary for their guests. They work with a singular aim in mind – to create unforgettable memories for every traveler.
Together we have over 30 years of experience in the Luxury Tour industry in Egypt, directing tours with one of the leading companies in the luxury market around the world.
While we value the comfort and amenities existing luxury tours offer, we both have come to realize that too often these luxury tours were missing a real human connection – and especially an opportunity to connect with the people of Egypt and the valuable sites and experiences that are off the well-beaten track of every other luxury tour.
