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.

I wanted to thank Memphis Tours for making this holiday really enjoyable!
I love Egypt and have visited 9 times (this was my 5th time in Cairo) but my two girlfriends had never been to Egypt and were slightly apprehensive about going after the recent political unrest. However, we had nothing to worry as Memphis Tours took care of that and organised everything from smooth airport transfers and some fantastic excursions which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Hussain the tour leader was friendly and very helpful. He was waiting for us in the arrivals hall when we arrived in Cairo and took us to our hotel. He gave us good advice/tips and was equally kind on our return transfer and made a detour so we could pick up some things.
Ahmed our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed both the pyramids tours and coptic cairo tours with him. Ahmed explained everything clearly and gave us all so much information about the places we visited and advised us on other activities we wanted to do whilst in Cairo. He was so patient with the 3 of us, taking our pictures and holding our bags!
My friends and I really enjoyed the Nile dinner cruise excursion, the live music, food and oriental show was superb. The boat is fantastic and beats other Nile dinner cruises I have been on in the past.
We were taken everywhere by a clean a/c mini van. Our driver Kemel was such a lovely man and never complained even when we kept him waiting for ages after the Nile dinner cruise!
Finally, Bassem our tour consultant was absolutely brilliant, He arranged everything for me 24 hrs before i was due to land in Cairo. He customised the tours and ensured we visited everything that we had requested. he rang and emailed me to ensure that I was content with the arrangements and did not let me down!
Memphis tours are very flexible and will do everything to tailor their services to suit individuals. They do fantastic tours and at really good prices. I will definitely recommend and use memphis tours again.

The Memphis Tours camel ride was a 2 hour authentic experience and was worth the price! My guide, Mimo, picked me up at my hotel, drove me to the camel ride, and picked me up after the ride was over. Beware of camel rides at the Giza pyramids...they are very costly, short, and you have to haggle over the price. The camel ride with Memphis Tours is the real thing! :)
The Sound and Light Show was AMAZING! Mimo picked me up at the hotel and got excellent seats for the show. He was waiting for me after the show to drive me back to my hotel. Mimo always had a funny story to tell and provided me with lots of information about Cairo.
While visiting Cairo, I also visited the Citadel and enjoyed the Nile Maxim Dinner cruise. I highly recommend these activities!
Cairo is a MAGICAL place and I am thankful I had the opportunity to visit. Thanks again to Memphis Tours, Mimo, and Eman Rashad. Your service was appreciated! A++++++
