“Memphis Tours Egypt”
, 10/22/13
We travelled to Egypt one week after the 2013 protests in Cairo, we were quite nervous about the trip, however Memphis Tours had an excellent performance and made our experience in Egypt unforgettable.

All guides are very professionals, very friendly and with an excellent Spanish, they help you in every single aspect of your trip.

Congratulation to this great team, I will definitely use Memphis Tour again.

We have no words to express our gratitude to all the wonderful, the most professional and friendly people at Memphis Tours. From the very begining, the planning process with Marwa, she was always so patient with us, showing many different options etc... and then came the political unrest, we considered canceling but decided to go ahead anyway.
Our tour manager, Abdel, was waiting for us basically right at the airplane! He helped us with visa, border control, everything! So professional, I've never seen that before. Took us to our beaufitul Mena House Hotel by the Pyramid, helped us to check in and all.
Our private tour guide Ahmed, knowledge at it's best! Went above his way to take us to the Egyptian Museum, Giza Plateau and all the sites.And our driver, so patient! Our stay in Cairo was wonderful, we felt super safe all the time.
We then travel by plane to Luxor, to board our 5* cruise Sonest Saint George, the best ever. Our tour guide there, Yasser, was also fantastic, he took us to so many wonderful sites along the Nile River, told us incredible stories about Kings, Queens and Goods, some of the Temples we visited at night... amazing experience. We will never forget.
While cruising the Nile, we travel to the sites by car, horse carriage and by small pedestrian ferries! The staff on the Sonesta Saint George were all fantastic, made us fell more than welcome. We made many friends and will never forget.
All the time, between flights, hotels, boats etc, there was always someone waiting for us to take us to where we needed to go, and always on time.
Sorry if we forgot to mention someone by name, you all rock! In a few more hours we will be leaving... so sad

“Nile Cruise”
, 10/21/12
We were part of a group 19 friends who spent 8 days seeing the most important sights of Egypt. Everything we did in Egypt was organized by Memphis Tours. We spent one day in Kairo visiting the Pyrmids and the Sphinx in addition to the Egyptian Museum. All was very welll organized and we hade a very nice guide caled Nasreen (?). The day after we flew to Luxor and embarked the Sonesta St George. The boat met all our expectations, very nice cabins, excellent food and very fiendly staff. The boat also had a nice sun deck with a bar and lounge area.
Througout our stay onboard the St George, we had a lot of sightseeing trips, all organized by Memphis Tours and led by our very enthusiastic guide, Ahmed El Prince. The sights in Egypt are impressive no matter what, but with the help of Ahmed we were able to understand some of the symbology and it made it so much more interesting. Ahmed even gave us lectures on ancient Egyptian Mythology and we were just awestruck by his tales.
All in all, an excellent trip made even better by Ahmed.
