Start your tour by a visit to the High Dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960 protecting Egypt from annual floods from the Nile. Then proceed to visit the Unfinished Obelisk which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks. Most probably this obelisk belongs to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th Dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II. This queen was the owner of her Temple in the eastern bank of Luxor. Also there is an opinion said that it belongs to Queen Nefertiti. Move on to visit the majestic Philae Temple which was built on the honor of Goddess Isis the chief deity of the island. Later you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Very Helpful when booking

I've only completed the arrangements so far for a couple tours out of Egypt and one out of Aswan. I'm actually going next month. They are very prompt with answers to questions and helpful with their replies to questions I've had. I've been dealing with Mr. Mohamed Sakr. I'm sooo looking forward to the tours and will report back afterwards.

Egypt - enjoyed every moment, thanks to Memphis Tours
, 2/11/12
Memphis Tour Company was recommended to me by a friend who recently travelled to Egypt. I found their staff members to be very gracious and their service throughout my trip excellent. All I had to do was enjoy the customized excursions they planned for me based on what I wanted to do. The most enjoyable part for me was being shown the Wonders of Egypt by Egyptians who are very proud of their country!

“Perfect day out”
, 11/1/10
My day out with Memphis Tours was not the typical day out for tourists, as I had specific needs to talk with local Nubians. I needed a professional to organise the day for me, to accompany me, facilitate the introductions and act as interpreter throughout. I called on Memphis Tours as I had used them several times in the past for more typical holidays.

Eman Rashad handled the arrangements, and Zizo was my appointed guide. The day went extremely smoothly; Zizo was totally professional, managed to find some excellent people to talk with, and offered suggestions on what should be discussed to ensure that we had covered everything that I might be interested in. The sessions ended with being invited into one host's house to meet his family, and another session with an invite to Sudan, and I accept these as being huge compliments.

It was an extremely successful and satisfying day, and I would certainly go back to Memphis Tours when I need another such day out.

“Reliable friendly service on all our tours”

We used Memphis travel for Three tours. On each occasions the guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were picked up on time, which alone is an achievement considering the traffic and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cairo.
