Sonesta Moon Goddess Nile Cruise
Such a Wonderful Guide
, 12/20/22

During our trip my husband needed some medications and our guide helped us get them. I was so grateful for our guide's kindness and willingness to help us in our time of need. He went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of, and it really made a difference in our trip.

 I went on a 5-day trip with Memphis Tours on the Sonesta Moon Goddess Nile Cruise and it was an unforgettable experience. The ship was luxurious and the staff were friendly and attentive. We visited many incredible sites, including the High Dam, Philae Temple, and the Temple of Horus.

Sonesta Moon Goddess Nile Cruise
Amazing Honeymoon
, 10/12/13
I booked a Nile cruise with Memphis tours from Aswan to Luxor, before we went on trip everything back come was telling me to cancel it is not safe. I am so glad we went we had a fantastic time and we both fell in love with Egpyt. Memphis were professional from the start, all the way through the entire trip. The drivers and reps were very polite and spoke every good English. The icing on the cake was when we arrived in Aswan after an 8 hour trip, our room had been upgraded to a suite which was so big you could live in it.

It was a shame everywhere was so quite but is was great for us as we felt like VIP and is 100% safe, our tour guide on the boat Alaa was amazing he was like a history teacher and went the extra mile for us to understand what each sign meant on every temple.

Thank you for making our honeymoon a dream come true, if anyone is looking to do a trip in Egpt Memphis tours is a must

Sonesta Moon Goddess Nile Cruise
“Egypt in a week - Wonderful”
, 11/3/12
On a week trip in Egypt, our very knowledgeable and fun guide on a 4 day Nile Cruise, Alaa Elsawy, made our tour of the temples fun and an incredible experience. He rocked ...and took great care of all of us and made sure we were all enjoying ourselves. The word guide doesn't really describe the knowledge and education and experience that these people offer. They are so much more. Rehab and our driver in Cairo gave us an excellent tour of the city...again top notch.

As two women travelling together, this company far exceeded our expectations. We were taken care of from the moment we arrived until we left. Shortly after arriving at the airport in Cairo, our guide and tour manager, Abdul, met us in the next few minutes and walked with us through immigration and to our luggage. What incredible service we received from all the employees we met up with on this trip.

When we went back to the airport to fly to Luxor for our cruise, Abdul assisted us right to the check in counter. The same on the way back to Caiiro. I don't remember all the employees names, but they all were courteous and made sure we had a great time. The service and accommodation were excellent.

We found this company on line and had checked out Trip Advisor as well. All our arrangements and dealings were online and we had no problems with any part of our trip. We would do it again and maybe just a little longer Nile Cruise. Thanks for such great service.
