I visited Egypt in April with my 13 year old daughter and arranged a tour of Luxor, the Temples and the Valley of the kings with Memphis Tours. I can not recommend this company enough, an exceptional level of care. The highly professional, knowledgeable guides showed us all the important sites and were very helpful throughout the day. My daughter was a little overcome with the heat but the guide showed her such care, and the resturant where we went to have lunch looked after her making her some delicious tea and soup to help her feel better, and it worked and we were able to finish the tour.
I was so impressed with Memphis tours that I also booked other trips with them - a visit to a Egyptian show at a hotel complex in HUrghada - and once again our guide was brilliant and a glass bottomed boat trip.
I do not hesitate to recommend this company if you are visiting Egypt - they provide fantastic service, and really made our visit special.
We contracted a tour with Memphis Tour on Easter. We went to the impressive city of Luxor and our guide was Mohamed. We had such a good time during the tour and the guide was very professional and friendly. I would choose this tour company again anytime anywhere.
Visited March 2013
We had two tour guides that were courteous, punctual and knowledgeable and made our visit to Egypt memorable. Their names were Shaimaa Baheeg in Luxor /Valley of the Kings and Ahmad El Sayed in Cairo for the pyramids/city tour/ saquarra.
The valley of the kings, the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the colossi pf Memnon, Karnak temple and Luxor temple.
The tour group itself only consited of me, my partner and our tour guide Shaimaa Baheeg. Some tour groups which we seen walking around some of the sites included over at least 30 people, which I assume were people who had booked the trip through their rep once they arrived, and everyone went on the same day. I would highly recommend booking through Memphis tours due to the excellent value for money that you do recieve! Our tour guide was very hospitable and knowledgable and so helpful when we asked questions.
I could not fault anything concerning the trip that we had booked, we paid the deposit over the internet and then the rest in Sterling once the trip was over. You have the option to pay in your home currency or Egyptian. You will not be dissapointed if you book a trip with Memphis tours and I can not praise the staff highly enough who work for the company.
