We booked a tour for the day in Alexandria with Memphis Tours, our extremely knowledgeable guide Mohamed Moktar was a wealth of information. We especially enjoyed the Catacombs, it was full of surprises.He also took us to a great restaurant for lunch, which was included in our tour. All in all it was a fabulous day. Would recommend this company to everyone.

We decided on Memphis after doing a bit of a search online and because we were getting very prompt response from them - Fatima was the person we corresponded with online. She put everything together for us.
Our guide in Cairo and Alexandria, Mohamed Salam was WONDERFUL.
i. He spoke clear and perfect English
ii. he was passionate about Egypt and your glorious history, and excited and overwhelmed us with his knowledge, enhancing our overall experience in Cairo and Alexandria
iii. He was extremely attentive and took great care of our welfare
Mohamed Salam is a gem of a guide. He was the best guide we had on our entire trip.
When we were in Cairo, we stayed the Fairmont Hotel, which was was FANTASTIC. It was new, had a fantastic breakfast buffet spread and most of all - the quality of its staff was top-notch
At Alexandria, we started in the Catacombs; Ahmed entered with us and started to explain which were the ladders’ sarcophagus and the mix of the Egyptian and Greece art. Then we arrive in the Pompay´s Pillar and Ahmed told us the history of why the Pillar name´s is Pomapay…
After that, we arrived in the Qaitbay Citade one of the most important defensive strongholds in Egypt by Sultan Al-Ashraf…
For the lunch time, we and Ahmed went to a traditional Egyptian restaurant where we could enjoy eating sea food xD. Finally we arrived at the Montazha Palace, where you can get pleasure from the view offered by the flowers, trees, the sea and a beautiful sunset.
We really recommended Menphis tour and its tour guides, they all time will be attending you and will try to bright you the best service and company… its guide compliance with everything that was offer in the tour and much more…
Ahmed thanks a lot for your time, for your kindness, for all the pictures, for all your explanations and histories about Egypt and for been so helpful.
