It is a fabulous way to enjoy a night on the Nile while you are in Cairo. So, you are invited to dinner on the Nile Maxim cruising restaurant for two hours sailing trip on the Nile with belly dancer, folklore show, Oriental music and dinner. All the time, you'll be delighted in our Chef's menu along with a selection of Egyptian favourites, made with the freshest ingredients, and prepared to make it a memorable dining experience.
We arrived on a Thursday morning, where we were met by Hamada, a Memphis Tour representative. He took us through a quick VISA process, and lead us quickly through customs. It helps not to have check-in luggage, if you can manage it!
We chose to spend a few hours at our hotel resting after the flight, as we went on a Nile River Dinner Cruise that evening. It was a late night for the kids (started at 8pm), but they enjoyed themselves. Music was loud, but the singers were good. The buffet wasn't amazing, but was varied and well-done (vegetables were crisp, fish wasn't dry, chicken was tender). The entertainment was enjoyable (singers, belly dancer, a swirling Dervish dancer) and tasteful. The cruise line that Memphis Tours used was a good one!
The next morning our guide Emad Seleem picked us up at the hotel with our driver Hasan and took us to the Egypt Museum. Emad was knowledgeable and interesting. Because we only had a few hours, he was selective with the parts of the museum that he showed us, as opposed to rushing through everything. He answered questions well, and also accommodated the children with his talks.
On the way to Giza, we toured a Papyrus Museum and a Perfumery Shop. Both were quite interesting, and the guides in these shops were interesting and informative . . . and not pushy. At no point did we feel as if we were being pressured into buying something.
Our tour of the pyramids was wonderful, and was clearly the highlight of our sons' trip. Again, Emad did an excellent job of sharing the history of Ancient Egypt. At every stop, he was upfront about any options that would cost extra (a camel ride and entrance into a pyramid, both of which we took). He gave us great advice about how to handle venders, and we always felt as if we were being well-taken care of.
Our only regret is that we had such a short time in this beautiful country! Without a doubt, our return to Egypt will include Memphis Tours.
