Tour Manager in Memphis Tours Egypt since 2010
This was our first visit to Egypt and the experience was definitely enhanced by having our trip organised by Memphis Travel. Nothing was too much trouble. From the initial enquiries where the agent worked with us to create our ideal trip to the helpful and courteous representatives and tour guides we met once we arrived in the country.
We would especially like to mention Mohamed Mansour, the Cairo representative who was our point of contact when we had any queries and assisted in making sure that changes that we decided we required were actioned as smoothly as possible and without making us feel that we were putting them out.
The tour guide we had in Cairo- Nasreen- was exceptionally good, she was welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. An ideal combination.
The selected accommodation- Movenpick Cairo Pyramids was of a high standard as we went five star - however there seemed to be a lack of double rooms. But on pointing out that we were not happy with a twin room we received a free upgrade to a business suite.
The level of service on our Nile cruise (the Al Jamila) was also excellent and for this part of the trip we had the services of an Egyptologist which provided us with a different level of information. Whilst the accommodation on the cruise was good we actually found that the food served became repetitive and we were only staying four nights!
We always had the services of a representative to ensure that our transitions from airport to hotel, airport to cruise ship, Aswan to airport etc went smoothly. Ahmed Elsaid our Cairo representative was very professional and welcoming.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip, and felt it went smoothly due to the efforts of all at Memphis Travel that we came into contact with. We would definitely recommend their services to anyone thinking of traveling to Egypt to enjoy the many wonderful sights and monuments there.

ahmed I booked a 4 night stay in Cairo for my girlfriend and I in Feb 2010 and decided to book transfers in advance. I found Memphis Tours on the internet and their reviews sounded good. I booked online and we were met at the airport by our tour rep Ahmed Elsaid and a driver. Ahmed was extremely friendly and pointed out various sights on our way to the hotel. He helped us with our bags and gave us a number to call if we needed anything else. The next day we called Ahmed and arranged a full day tour of the Great Pyramids, Giza and Saqqara. We were given our own tour guide and private mini-bus and we found the tour to be very informative and reasonablly priced. I would definately recommend Memphis Tours and are already planning a return trip to Luxor with Memphis Tours! Thanks Ahmed and everyone at memphis Tours!!
