Memphis Tours went above and beyond. They made sure everything was to perfection. The tour was very well organized. They took care of everything. The trip was very comfortable.
The tour was fabulous. They hit all the hotspots and made it very enjoyable. There was an ample amount of time at each historic site so that was very beneficial for me and my husband. We loved being able to take our time in discovering and exploring each site.
Very good trip.
The tour was amazing. Exceeded our expectations.
We have hired the agency Memphis Tour and we had all the support necessary for everything, anytime. During 8 days, we had with us all the time people from Memphis who made us feel very safe. All the drivers were very good, which is important because the traffic in Egypt is crazy. Our Nile Cruise (Alyssa Boat) was perfect. The staff was very helpful and polite.
From the moment we were collected at the airport, Memphis Tours were fantastic. Attentive, well organised, thoughtful, safety conscious, informative and punctual (a rarity in Egypt!). We took the cruise from Luxor to Aswan on Al Jamila with Yasser as our guide. Ask for him if you go, he was excellent as were Emad in Luxor and Hassan and Mostafa in Aswan. Thank you to all of you for making our holiday unforgettable.
Visited April 2012
If we go back to Egypt in the near future, I will use Sayed as my preferred tour guide anytime and I will recommend Sayed ([--]) to anyone going to Egypt, especially Luxor to Aswan.
We booked a 7D/6N private tour, Fly & Nile Cruise from Cairo fly to Luxor to join a Nile cruise, MS Mojito to sail to Aswan. Plus an optional private tour to Abu Simbel that leave Aswan at 4am in the morning and return by noon on the same day.
We arrived end May, which is the beginning of Summer in Egypt, so the temp can goes up to 42degC at noon, night about 25degC. This make Nile Cruise an excellent choice, cooler next to a river. The other plus point is that we can get up close and personal at all the historical locations with our guide, no need to fight the crowd. All the planned tours start early morning, would finished at around noon. In the late afternoon you could visit the museum(s) on shore.
The beauty of a private tour is that we have the undivided attention of a tour guide, as he accompanied us throughout the Nile Cruise and to all the historical sites, till we fly back to Cairo from Aswan. You can appreciate why having a professional knowledgeable Egyptology guide like Sayed Selim with a great sense of humor is very important here.
MS Mojito, is a cosy Nile Cruise ship, staffed by professional. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet are reasonably good quality. The drinks (include bottled water) are charged at double the shore price. The room are clean and they have a window that can be opened. This is a plus for us, as we could enjoy the cool breeze in the evening while the cruise is sailing on the Nile.
Points to note are, Memphis Tour staff are very professional and punctual. And if you don't like to be taken on shopping trips in between tours, you must tell your guide from the very beginning you met up with him. Then you will a wonderful exceptional experience like we do in Egypt.
Many thanks to the Memphis Tours team, Abdo (tour consultant, handling booking), Ahmed (tour leader at Luxor), Hamada (tour leader at Cairo), Mohamed (tour guide at Cairo) and Sayed Selim (tour guide from Luxor to Aswan).
Job well done, everyone!
If you book with them, check details carefully, make sure the hotels are the ones you want and the travel timings will work for you - and double check the room access times!
The only thing better than the web site was the tour itself. From my greeting at the airport, to the guides in Cairo and along the Nile cruise, everything was done with the client in mind. Transportation and guides were excellent - providing me with great tours, history, advice, and local color.
In Cairo, my tour group was me - plus the guide and driver. Along the Nile, I was joined by two other people for the tours. No waiting for dozens of others to get off/on the bus/boat. Because of the small size, the guides were able to customize the tours in time and our interests (and we didn't have to go to perfume and alabaster stores...).
I had a great time!
Yes, there were a couple of minor glitches - one of the busses broke, so they had to arrange a substitute car and driver - but everything was handled smoothly. We complained about one noisey night in a hotel, and they moved us into another, fancier hotel - penthouse suite - pretty nice rebound.
I recommend this company. They know how to provide first-class service in Egypt, and their guides are knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very nice vacation, with no worries, thanks to Memphis.
