Great tour
, 7/10/13
We have just returned from a 2 week tour of Egypt and Jordan organised by Memphis Tours. What a great time we had!! We were some what apprehensive regarding the political upheaval (we arrived on the night of June 30) but at all times we felt very safe and looked after. All guides and drivers, both Egyptian and Jordanian were very good. Memphis looked after all our bookings - including a Nile Cruise on the Sonesta Moon Godess, and at all times were very efficient and professional. We had a problem flying into Cairo on June 30 (our flights were cancelled) - a quick call to Memphis tours and they were on to the job helping to solve our problem!! I was particularly impressed with their punctuality- all the representatives, drivers and guides. I will use them next time I return to Egypt
“Excellent! Best tour company I have ever traveled with!”
, 5/25/13


Traveling with Memphis tours was one of the best, stress-free travel experiences I have ever had. It was well organised and everyone we dealt with was so friendly and helpful. We were picked up right at the airport by Tarek and Ahmed, who filled us in on the details of our tour, and even taught us a little Arabic on the was to the hotel! Beautiful hotels and rooms throughout the entire tour, hotel rooms were very clean. The food was great. The historic sights were unbelievable! Our guides were fantastic! In Cairo we had a wonderful guide named Hend, she was so informative, friendly and answered every question we could think to ask. Everyone we spoke to at this tour company went above and beyond what was expected to make sure our trip was wonderful, from our drivers to the customer care manager(a gentleman named Gamal). This tour company went way beyond what I expected and I could not be happier with the entire experience. If you're planning a trip to Egypt or Jordan I would recommend this tour company in a heartbeat, they will take good care of you and make your trip incredibly memorable! I can't wait to go back and now is a great time to go; I felt very safe the entire time and there aren't huge crowds of tourists so you can really enjoy the historical sites without throngs of people everywhere.
Excellent service, professional, great communication
, 4/5/13
We booked several tours with Memphis Tours for 3 stops on our cruise. One of which was this excellent tour of Cairo. We met up with Memphis again in Jordan where we toured Petra, then again at Safaga, Egypt, where we were taken inland to tour Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. I would highly recommend this method of touring.

We were on our first cruise, and I booked this private tour with Memphis before I understood how I could see these places with the ship's tour groups. I am SO glad I did. We were whisked away from the ship in a private car, while the tour busses were still waiting to park and pick up the huge groups. We had an English speaking guide, Nema and a driver with limited english. We left the sights sometimes before the tour busses even arrived. Nema provided great details and insights into the sights we visited. If we wanted more information, we asked, if we became a little overwhelmed, she seemed to understand and would back off on the information. She was extremely engaging and knowledgeable. She took us to the pyramids where she tied my scarf in a traditional headscarf manor, we went to the Egyptian Museum when the cruise tour groups had to skip it due to a protest, and she and the driver stopped on the way back to the ship to be sure we had a chance to try their favorite street food from a vendor.

The Memphis tour group experience was incredibly satisfying. We were seldom bothered by vendors or camel drivers because we were with a guide. We learned as much as we wanted because we directed the information we received through questions that were expertly answered. We had twice as much time at sites and venues than the tour groups. We were much more nimble and could stop at places/shops/sites that caught our fancy rather than sticking to a big group schedule. When we were taken to shops 'suggested' by our Egyptian guide, we went in to have a look, but learned to leave quickly if we didn't want anything. We booked several months in advance, and the customer service team at Memphis was very polite and suffered my many emailed questions.

The biggest surprise was that we paid less than the people who bought the group tour package onboard the ship!!!
