“Exceptional service”
, 6/2/13

My husband and I took four tours with Memphis in May: El Alamein Day Tour, Alexandria Shore Excursion, Tanis and the Suez Canal, and Memphis, Sakkara and Dashour. We were very pleased with each one. Our tour guide, Deen, was friendly, exceptionally knowledgeable, and most importantly, took his time and did not rush us through the sites. Our driver, Mostafa, was safe, courteous, and professional. Also, there was no funny business with the itinerary: we saw all sites that were promised. These guys really went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience.

“Great Egypt Tour with Memphis Tours and Mohamed Kamel!!”
, 5/28/13
Our quick visit to Egypt was terrific due to the excellent job done by Memphis Tours and our tour guide Mohamed Kamel. Everything went exactly according to plan (a big plus in my book!). The associate at Memphis Tours helped customize the tour to meet our needs which involved a pick-up from our cruise ship in Alexandria (and Memphis Tours seamlessly handled a late change caused when our cruise ship switched ports at the last minute)

We can not say enough good things about our tour guide Mohamed Kamel and our driver (also Mohamed), both of whom were truly excellent. Mohamed did a great job of introducing us to Egypt and to its incredible history. He went out of his way to make our trip special -- making a special point of taking us to his cafe for a coffee after a long day of touring.

We look forward to a return trip to Egypt with Memphis Tours and Mohamed Kamel!
“Great tours with Tarek and Eid!”
, 2/8/13
We did two tours with Memphis tours. One from Alexandria to Cairo and another one from Safaga to Luxor. We have nothing but good things to say about our experience :)
Our tour in Cairo - Giza was amazing. Tarek(Tito) was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. He made us feel very safe on our tour, which was very good.
The Luxor tour was also very good. Eid was very good explaining things that were difficult to understand, using people from the group to explain relations and such :)
I would definitely use Memphis tours again when I return to Egypt. Would also like to thank Abdo for all his prompt responses via email, he was great!
