After doing some online research I decided to book my Egypt tour with Memphis Tours - Marwa Amer was my assigned Tour Operator and Marwa worked patiently with me from November to a few days prior to the actual tour and did an OUTSTANDING job of planning, etc. We were met as soon as we got off the ship by Hussain Zakariya who escorted us to our comfortable 50-passenger air-conditioned bus (with onboard restroom) and were introduced to our Egypotologist (Nassirin - not sure of spelling) who spoke fluent English and was by far excellent to say the least, along with our outstandingly skilled bus driver and our armed police escort - neither of the staff ever left any of us alone while on the tour and they were very helpful to all of us (23 passengers in total). We made a brief rest stop enroute to Cairo and once in Cairo we toured Old Cairo visiting the Hanging Church, Mary Gerges Church and the Ben Ezra synagogue, from there we had lunch at a 5-star resort with an excellent meal of fish or chicken and upon arrival at the Resort, we were greeted by musicians who played Egyptian music and danced with us; after lunch we toured the pyramids, the Sphinx, cameling riding around the pyramids, a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiques viewing the treasures of the child King Tutankhamen, Pharaonic Gods and Goddess and then shopping for souvenirs and jewelry at licensed vendors. I cannot say enough about the excellent tour and treatment that we received from Memphis Tours and I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Egypt. Outstanding service from beginning to end and special thanks again to Marwa and her staff. Wishing you all the best for 2011 and hope to see you soon on my next trip to Egypt.

Lunch will be served at a quality local restaurant. Continue to the Egyptian Museum which features artifacts from the Pharaonic period. The museum displays a rare collection of 5000 years of art which is considered the largest most precious collection of Egyptian art in the world. Over 250,000 genuine artifacts are presented, including an exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamen collection of treasure, gold and jewelry which was enclosed in his tomb for over 3,500 years before it was discovered in the 1920s when his tomb was excavated. And if there is enough time continue driving to explore Khan El Khalili, Cairo’s old bazaar. Finally you will be escorted by your guide back to your cruise ship in Alexandria Port.
NB: Departure time from Cairo depends on the departure time of your ship at Alexandria Port.
