Wonderful holiday

We booked a 9 day holiday in Egypt and Memphis tours arranged a custom-made programme for me and my wife. We toured Cairo for 3 days and stayed at the superb Kempinksi Nile Hotel and then we flew to Luxor where we started a 5 day cruise on the Nile to Aswan. here we had a super guide Sayed Selim who knew all the historical facts of Egypt and made our 25th anniversary trip very special. I recommend Memphis and pls ask for Selim to be your guide.

We booked last minute to go to Egypt(April 2nd wk,2012)..Memphis tour were flexible and catered to our needs. We were picked up from the airport cheerfully by Mr Usama, but the van had strong diesel fumes...next day they gave us a clean van.
The tour guide was nice, but it is very difficult to understand the accent and are not at all indepth(you better do your homework before you arrive). You want to watch your belongings carefully as my binoculars and polarizing lens were stolen.
We went to Abu Simbel, than 4d river cruise(Yasser, the guide was good) and back to Cairo.
It was a memorable trip, have to adjust to 3rd world conditions, vehicles etc and not expect the same as in US.
On the whole, Memphis tour made it possible, affordable and enjoyable to visit Egypt..thanks to the staff and managers

Worry free with Memphis tours
, 3/1/12
I started working with Memphis about 2 1/2 years ago to arrange this trip. They have continued to work with me through a revolution, riots and strikes. Through all of this Abdo Younis and the rest of the staff have done a supreme job to cater to all our wants and to make sure that this trip is worry free and completely enjoyable. From the moment we touched down in cairo Hussein was walking up the runway to get our bags and to get us through customs. From Musty in Aswam,Emad in Luxor, Ahmed in Sharm they have been superb. I don't know how they could have done more. Every tour they plan, hotel and guide has been excellent. Their motto should be, "No problem."

, 1/10/12
We really enjoyed our trip to Egypt, thanks to Memphis tour team for their professionalism and hospitality. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the services provided by Memphis tours during my 11 days stay in Egypt. Every representative who met us or assigned to us was extremely professional, punctual, organized, helpful and well mannered. I must say I wouldn’t have enjoyed the trip to Egypt as much as I did if I hadn’t chosen the Memphis Tours as my tour operator/guide.
I would personally like to thank Yahia (Luxor), Momin (Cairo & Alexandria) and Mohammad (Cairo) for their hospitality.

Very professional
, 10/31/11
First of all, Egypt is SAFE to travel !!!!

I really enjoyed my Egypt travel with Memphis tour: very professional and knowledgeable on subject. It was nearly perfect except few minor issues I encountered. Below are the lists of goods and bads.

Good.
- Bassem was my email contact from America. He was very qiuck to answer all my questions with detail before and after my trip. Because of his response, I was able to establish good impresson on Memphis tour even before my trip to Egypt.

- Mostafa was my Cairo guide. He was very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Egyptian culture and history.

- Ahmed was driver in Cairo. He was very courteous and pleasant.

- Sayed Selim was my Guide from Luxor - Aswan Nile Cruise. Very knowledgeable and humourous. I really enjoyed his company. Nile cruise is my highlight of Egypt Travel. All thanks to Sayed Selim

- In Aswan, I met this respresentative ( I didn't have chance to get his name). He is the one picked me up from Cruise to Airport. He mentioned he actually lives in Cairo. He was very professional. It was short moment, but I was really impressed with his professionalism.

- I got sick and had to cancelled my trip in last minute (It was optional one. that Memphis tour already processed the payment). I was suprised to get full refund without any argument. I didn't even have to mention anything. They just refund the whole amount. Also Sayed ( I belive he is manager) in Cairo called me to see how I was doing and asked if I wanted to see the doctor. I felt comfort by his concern. Thank you.

Bad
- There are two incidents, guide and representative were show up late in Cairo. They were late for 10 minutes and 20 minutes. They said they were sorry and explained the reason for being late. I understood the situation and accepted the apology. But regardless what it was, I think it is not professional.

- Tipping was bothering me a lot. I don't mind tipping. But without clear guidance, I was confused and worried. Well it is part my fault not searched those information prevousely, but I think it is better to give clear guidance. I ended up tipping driverss, representatives and guides. On top of that I think I felt dramatic attitude change from a representative before and after tipping (I can be wrong about this)

- I heard two persons mentioned bad things about guests from the particular country. I am pretty sure, there were reasons. But it wasn't pleasant to hear and made me wonder that I can be the one next time.


Over all it was very impressive experiance with Memphis Tour. Thank you all.

Hassle-free planning
, 10/22/11
So far, so good.......my husband and I are Kiwis living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and were looking to book a trip to Egypt for our first wedding anniversary next Jan/Feb. Based on the reviews I read on trip advisor for Memphis Tours I decided to see what they could offer us for a private tour. Our email enquiry was quickly answered with a comprehensive 'classic egypt' type tour described with prices and inclusions, as well as exclusions. We're impressed with the price, which comes with 4-star hotels, and have gone ahead with it. Very simple, comprehensive process, no fuss. Will put another review up once we've completed our trip :) Thanks to Ahmed Shalpy, our personal trip planner :)

AMAZING TOUR EXPERIENCE
, 10/17/11


My wife and i decided to take a cruise up the Nile River from Luxor to Aswan and they fly to Cairo from there. The experience with Memphis tours was hands down the best tour experience we have ever had. (We've been on alot of tours by the way) They met us at the airport when we landed into Cairo and they took us to our lovely hotel - all the tours for the day were arranged with a private tour guide and air conditioned vehicle. The following day we boarded our cruise boat which was gorgeous. A real wonderful experience! Once again we had a private tour guide named Ahmed who was with us the whole way and i have to stay that if you go on this cruise - MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR AHMED TO BE YOUR TOUR GUIDE!!! He truly is the epitome of what a tour guide should be. His knowledge and the quality of his leading through the temples & sites is second to none. Other tourists were jealous of us because we had such a great tour guide. I think the only downside of our experience in Egypt is firstly, it is very dirty everywhere. There is alot of garbage thrown on the streets and even around the Pyramids so be prepared and secondly is the constant haggling and tipping. Be prepared with local currency (never tip more than 20 Egyptian Pounds). They will ask you to tip for everything and i mean absolutely everything! Even if you look at a local they will ask you to tip them. Its outrageous! Overall, in light of all the security issues, Memphis tours enables to forget about all that and simply enjoy the wonderful experience that is Egypt.

Memphis Tour Egypt = Excellence and professional
, 10/1/11
I went to Egypt for a business trip 20 days and decided to search for tours companies by internet to visit Luxor and Aswan-Abu Simbel. I decided to used Memphis Tours because the website is the most organized and after sending the request the service and quick answer to my questions was much better. A clear answer and description of the tours and an excellent support via email and phone from Mr. Mohammed Sekr. After arriving in Luxor I met Mrs. Rehab Samir and Mr. Hassan Saadi, both very professional and excellent persons, with a great knowledge of Egypt and perfect communication in English and German. Mrs. Rehab Samir a very kind person, educated and with a hudge knowledge of every detail, was marvelous to make the tour with her and I felt very happy to met her. Mr. Saadi, excellent and respectful with a great knowledge of history and excellent english and german. In all tours that I have made with both I felt secure and was a great experience. I used to travell around many countries and made many tours during my whole life, but this time I felt a real difference and I would recommend Memphis to every person that go to Egypt, from the internet facilities and organizated site to all the guide and services that make the people feel at home. My thanks to all his team and specially to Mr. Sekr, Mr. Saadi and Mrs. Samir for the excellent service and friendly reception, wishing all the best for all of you, Gisela Barona Diaz ( Global Head of Marketing - Brazil )

Memphis Tours planned for us a complete package that went from Alexandria to Aswan. The accommodations were excellent. Our guides were highly trained and helpful. We felt 100% safe the whole trip. This is a trip that should be on everyone's list, and Memphis Tours will make it memoriable. I fell in love with the country and the people.

, 7/11/11

Many tourists seem to be a little unsure about using local - in this case Egyptian - travel agencies and prefer to consult those in their home country. Well, I chose 'Memphis Tours' in Cairo, as I had heard about them on previous trips to Egypt and must say, that the speed, efficiency, patience and friendliness with which my wishes were put into an itinerary by Bassem, amazed me. Never have I had such smooth holiday preparations.

A wonderful trip, well organised

We wanted an individual tour and only found memphis tours to organise it for us.
There were no problems at all, the timing was always perfect, the hotels booked were good and we felt treated as friends (our tour guide's wife made lunch for us, we could chat with one another, etc.).
Spontaneous changes were no problem for the travel agency.
Our guide, Mr Ahmed Nasser and our tour leader, Mustafa Osman were very kind and professional. They made sure we felt well all the time and we cannot complain about anything.
The next time, we will certainly book this agency again!

“Memphis Tours Exceeded all our expectations”
, 2/2/11
We found Memphis Tours surfing on line, including some good reviews from Trip Advisor.

We decided to book a 10 day guided trip (from 12/19 - 12/29) which included a 4 night cruise from Aswan to Luxor, plus private guided tours and time in Cairo. We really knew very little about an Egypt Tour (what were the best hotels, cruise line, itinerary) other than wanting to see the pyramids. We took a chance and put ourselves in the hands of Mohamed Mokhtar, our contact with Memphis tours. He set up a planned itinerary which used Sonnesta Cruise Lines and The Marriott Cairo Hotel. I can't tell you how happy we were with both choices. We were on Sonnesta's Moon Godess ship, which had all balcony rooms, very nicely furnished, with the best of service. I did have my reservations about the Marriott, but it really did turn out to be a 5 star hotel and was located in one of the few areas of Cairo where my wife and daughters could go out for a walk on their own and feel totally comfortable and safe.

All of Mohamed Mokhtar choices were excellent. However, as nice as the accommodations were, the trip comes down to being as good as the tour guides are. In this case, I feel we lucked out both times. In Cairo and at all the stops on the cruise. The guides were very knowledgeable, professional and quite friendly.

We truly left Egypt with an understanding of their history and more importantly, finding out how nice the Egyptians are today!!!
