We can’t say enough about our wonderful 3-day visit to Cairo/Alexandria with Memphis Tours. Marwa did an excellent job providing tour options and coordinating logistics. We spent one day visiting pyramids, one day touring Cairo and one day in Alexandria. We also enjoyed a Nile dinner cruise. We were met at our hotel the first day by Amgd, the tour manager, and Imed, our guide. Both are very personable and professional. Imed and our amazing driver, Magdy, managed our daily tours and could not have been more courteous, responsive and knowledgeable. We learned so much and felt very well taken care of. There was not one question that Imed didn’t have the answer for and Magdy’s driving skills are beyond impressive. Taking us to the papyrus and jewelry stores were thoughtful gestures that helped us get wonderful mementos of our trip. All in all, I would highly recommend the Memphis Tours team for an amazing and perfectly coordinated holiday in Egypt.
The tour started on time at 08:00 am. While Mohamed Abdel Salam ([email protected]) gave me a brief historic overview our driver navigated carefully through the never ending traffic.
It was a very pleasant experience. Many tourists seem to avoid Egypt at the moment however I always felt safe even though I would recommend to avoid being on the road on Fridays. Most major capitals in the world I have visited feel much more dangerous.
Mohamed was very engaged, helpful and knowledgeable for all my detailed questions. The best tour guide I ever had. I arrived as customer and left as friend.
I will definitely come back for an extended trip to Luxor!
Many thanks to Mohamed Abdeltawab for hosting me, Tarek my tour guide, Emam and Waleed who were the tour drivers. First class services from all.
