In conclusion, I recommend Memphis Tours. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, they looked after us. We never had the impression that we were on our own. No time died was wasted, our time was carefully spent.
Me and my husband chose the 10 days “Taste of Egypt and Jordan” tour for our anniversary. We had so much fun the whole time there. The guides and drivers were always on time and they were very considerate. Cairo at night is exceptional. We went to the pyramids in Giza, We were astonished by how great they are. Cruising the Nile was definitely something I’d like to redo once again. Time in Jordan was as great as the time spent in Cairo. Petra is Breathtaking. There were a few Americans there as well. The food in both countries is delicious.
Thank you for making our 3rd anniversary so good.
This surpassed our expectations. I'd want to especially thank the drivers and guides who were assigned. They looked after us so well that I will surely recommend this trip to my friends.
Thank you one more.
I thoroughly loved my trip. We had the opportunity to learn about the cultures of Jordan and Egypt. My absolute favorite was taking a cruise down the Nile; I had a great time.
We took the kids on this trip so they could have fun and learn about some new cultures. We were concerned that kids wouldn't appreciate it, but fortunately, they were thrilled. We appreciate Memphis Tours for making the trip so memorable.
