“Recent travel with Memphis 30 Sept 2013 FANTASTIC TOUR COMPANY
, 10/20/13
This was to be our first trip to Egypt in Sept 2013 but unfortunately due to the unrest we had to cancel.We had paid our deposit with Memphis for the 10 day tour, we asked if we could use this deposit towards a trip to Morocco, they could not have been more helpful , within a couple of days they had organized a ten day private tour of Morocco for four adults. This trip turned out to be trip of a lifetime with five star hotels thru out and a wonderful driver who went out of his way to make our holiday a great experience.We had a one day stopover in Cairo to connect with our original flight home, on arrival we were greeted by there representitive who, organised our visas and transfer to the hotel, he informed us that it was peaceful in Cairo and a day trip to the pyramids was organised.I would have no hesitation in recommending Memphis Tours for organizing your trip, a great , helpful and fully professional company to deal with

Amazing trip to Egypt
, 2/10/12
This was my first time to Egypt. I highly recommend Memphis Tours. We were greeted by Osama 1, as he called himself, because the driver's name was also Osama, haha. So we had 1 and 2. Osama 1 was extremely friendly and he was basically our trip manager. He explained to us everything that we needed to know and he even covered some of the culture for us on our amazing 1 hour drive from the airport to the hotel. And the traffic was bad, but don't let that deter you, because experiencing them drive in heavy traffic is something they could easily make a ride out of at disney world. Words simply cannot explain it! There are apparently no rules for driving there. And they are amazing drivers, too. I would not attempt to drive through there if you paid me! Ok so then we were treated like gold by everyone who interacted with us on the tour and throughout the hotels and cruise ships. We had two personal tour guides; one for Cairo and one for Aswan and the cruise up the Nile. Not sure the spelling, but Mahtti was our Cairo guide. He was very friendly and kept us save. He even got me out of a bind with one of the locals when I snapped a photo that I wasn't supposed to take. Then we had Alaa Elsawy as our guide for the cruise and the stops we made along the way. We spent the most time with Alaa. He was extremely friendly and very passionate about his work; he definitely made the trip worth while. Thanks Alaa!
