“See Egypt with the Experts”
, 2/25/14
From the first email it was clear that the Memphis staff member, Yosri, was not only willing but eager to plan the best possible trip for my husband and I. Our tour not only completely suited us but utterly thrilled us. And at a very reasonable price. From the moment we landed in Cairo a Memphis staff member was there making sure that we had a wonderful time. Each of the guides we had was extremely knowledgeable, imparting his knowledge in an informative and engaging manner, helping us to get a real sense of the wonder we were seeing. Unfortunately a death in the family at home forced us to cut our trip short, again Memphis showed their worth, their consideration and assistance in organising our rushed trip home was exceptional. We look forward to booking our return trip to Egypt through Memphis Tours, in fact I wouldn't use any other tour company.
“If you are thinking about Egypt... think about hiring Memphis Tours!”

My daughter and I were traveling on our own in October with a stop in Egypt. With the recent unrest and the chaos of a city of 22 million, we were uncertain about figuring this one out by ourselves. We wanted to maximize our sites and had only a short period of time so, after doing some research we solicited Memphis Tours. They were beyond amazing! They took such good care of us starting pre-trip and including every plane, train, automobile, hotel, tour, and town. Every pickup and drop-off was on time and professional and we were never left on our own which helped us feel safe. They shared so much good information; about visas, dressing respectfully, avoiding tourist scams, current affairs, and of course the history at each site! The rather overwhelming Egyptian Museum would have been just that if not for Mohmen who brought it to life for us. Memphis even made the impossible happen for us by changing our itinerary last minute during a busy holiday weekend. I can’t recommend them enough!
 
 
8 days in Egypt and Memphis Tours the Best
, 11/10/13
A year ago, a few friends and I planned for a different kind of holiday. We wanted to go on a-so-called more adventurous trip. I recommended Egypt. I had visited Egypt back in 2009 and fell in love with the country and its long history. It was only this year in March 2013, we finally all agreed to set a date. In the meantime, I was surveying for good and reliable local tour agents and was recommended by a relative to check out Memphis Tours. I contacted them and was responded most efficiently by Mrs Fatima. She promptly quoted the cost of a customised itinerary plus a 3 night nile cruise on Sonesta Moon Goddess.

Anyhow, July revolt came and we had already paid 50%, A few got a bit jittery. Fatima assured me that we could cancel. But I convinced my travel companions to wait-n-see. So we did. By September, all my travel companions agreed that we can proceed with the plan, well except for one. October came, we finalised our air-tix. We got into Cairo end of October. Visited Giza and Sakkara with an experienced egyptologist guide - Mr. Mahmoud. Mahmoud took me to visit the El-Fishawi cafe at Khan Khalili Bazaar, a place where Naguib Mahfouz wrote parts of his prize-winning Cairo Trilogy.

In Aswan and Luxor, we met the ever so passionate egyptologist Mohamed Emam. He guided us through the history of each Temples like he lived through it. M.Emam, you are awesome! The cruise was great and an incident at the Esna lock, will always be "locked" in my memory.

The services of Memphis Tours went beyond, when I left my travel bag in the van which transported us from Luxor to Aswan. Only to realise it an hour later. A quick call to Rouby, the tour manager in Luxor, pacified me that the bag shall be sent the next day. Rouby delivered it personally to me just before my flight back to Cairo. Thank you so much Rouby. Last but not least, our appreciation and thanks to Friday who took us to the Nubian Village and guided us through the magnificent monument of Ramses II at Abu Simbel.

In summary, I hope all the travel bans will be lifted so that Luxor and Aswan will come back to life as they should be. I wish all of you at Memphis Tours, all the best.
