We had a throroughly enjoyable couple of days with our tour guide, Ehab, and driver, Osama, on private tours of the pyramids (Giza, Saqqara, and Dahshur) and the city (museum, citadel, bazaar, christian district). Would highly recommend the tours and these particular guides to anyone. They really made our trip!

If anybody is interested in booking a private trip around Cairo or other parts of Egypt I would recommend Memphis Tours to anyone. They are a well established company with an excellent service.
My family and i went to Egypt July 2013 and had an AMAZING time with Memphis Tours. We had a great guide in Cairo Joseph Selim and Harry Al Ayya and great tour guide in Luxor Sayed Selim. Thank you for a great time in Egypt : )
Mahmoud was our tour guide in cairo and he did an excellent job in explaining all the historic sites. He had the knack to keep us away from the hawkers . Takes great photos as well !!!
Shimaa Baheeg was equally good when we were in Luxor. She took us to a wonderful lunch at Luxor which was part of the deal when you book a tour with Memphis.
We would highly recommend Memphis tours . Try and combine 2 half day trips as it may work out cheaper that way.
We found the Giza light and sound show expensive when we booked through Memphis . Otheer than that they were quite reasonably priced

We arrived on a Thursday morning, where we were met by Hamada, a Memphis Tour representative. He took us through a quick VISA process, and lead us quickly through customs. It helps not to have check-in luggage, if you can manage it!
We chose to spend a few hours at our hotel resting after the flight, as we went on a Nile River Dinner Cruise that evening. It was a late night for the kids (started at 8pm), but they enjoyed themselves. Music was loud, but the singers were good. The buffet wasn't amazing, but was varied and well-done (vegetables were crisp, fish wasn't dry, chicken was tender). The entertainment was enjoyable (singers, belly dancer, a swirling Dervish dancer) and tasteful. The cruise line that Memphis Tours used was a good one!
The next morning our guide Emad Seleem picked us up at the hotel with our driver Hasan and took us to the Egypt Museum. Emad was knowledgeable and interesting. Because we only had a few hours, he was selective with the parts of the museum that he showed us, as opposed to rushing through everything. He answered questions well, and also accommodated the children with his talks.
On the way to Giza, we toured a Papyrus Museum and a Perfumery Shop. Both were quite interesting, and the guides in these shops were interesting and informative . . . and not pushy. At no point did we feel as if we were being pressured into buying something.
Our tour of the pyramids was wonderful, and was clearly the highlight of our sons' trip. Again, Emad did an excellent job of sharing the history of Ancient Egypt. At every stop, he was upfront about any options that would cost extra (a camel ride and entrance into a pyramid, both of which we took). He gave us great advice about how to handle venders, and we always felt as if we were being well-taken care of.
Our only regret is that we had such a short time in this beautiful country! Without a doubt, our return to Egypt will include Memphis Tours.
Highly recommend this company if you are planning to visit Egypt. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you so much for the good services; I am very pleased and I will recommend Memphis Tour to my friends and families
Tour Guide: Ahmed Abdulhameed
My wife and I were in Cairo, Egypt just recently. I am still stunned by how good the service was, especially as the price was very fair. We were there for five days, and we were taken care off throughout. If you're booking with Memphis, I'd say go ahead and get the airport pickup and drop off. Our trip coordinator (Osama) met us *before* we got to customs, and he was able to check us in, and he was with a driver and they transported us to our hotel. The trip coordinator made the trip nice for us because we didn't have to worry about some of the little things--like checking in and out of the hotel, or knowing a good place to get food.
For some of the sites, we were assigned a tour guide (Ahmed) who was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of context to the places we were visiting. I mean yes, the statue of Ramses is cool, but do you know he had two crowns? Yes, Memphis is the ancient capital of Egypt--but how about seeing how every day Egyptians live at a carpet school? Such attention to detail made things more memorable than they already were (I mean Pyramids!!!).
Both the tour guide and the coordinator had lunch with us on the days that we were assigned. We were sad to leave them behind as we'd become quite fond of them in the short time we shared!
If you're visiting Egypt, please be sure to consider Memphis.
I have just returned from a visit to Cairo, when I visited the pyramids (day and night), sailed on the Nile, went to Sakkara and Memphis and to Old Cairo, the Coptic Churches, Synagogue and Mosque and the stunning Egyptian Museum. I shall never forget the warmth of the lovely Egyptian people, and how well I was looked after, especially by Mustafa Ahmed (and Emat, his driver), who put himself out to accommodate me and explain so much Egyptian history, and also by Basseem at the Memphis office, who arranged it all. Egypt needs tourists desperately - I was entirely safe the whole time I was there and never felt threatened. It was wonderful.
Visited November 2011
You can do as much or as little as you like with the company and the prices were very reasonable. There is a car always waiting for you, plenty of water is supplied, and meal breaks are planned. And you're picked up and dropped off whereever you want to be. The employees did really seem to care whether I had a good time or not. I'd recommend Memphis Tours to anyone, and will use them again if I make it back to Egypt.
Unfortunately I used a different company, white desert tours based out of the international hot springs hotel in Oasis Bahariya for my western desert / white desert tour and did not get nearly the same experience. I used Memphis for my other tours and wish I had for the desert tour as well.
They have our highest recommendation and thanks
Mavis and John..................................Akbuk, Turkey
From responing to our initial inquiry through the 'chat' box on their website, to getting back to us countless times, always very quickly, via email, Ayman has been very informative and helpful as we planned the specific trip that my family wanted to have.
We are greatly looking forward to New Years in Egypt and experiencing the trip that Ayman put together with us. Expecting a great time! :)
