Overnight Trip to Cairo from Port Said Port
“Cairo...more bang for your buck with private guide/transportation!”
, 6/16/13
\Our group of four pre-made our own arrangements to see the wonders of Cairo, Giza and Saqqara with Memphis Tours (recommended by our travel agent) and saw more in two days then I did in three days 30 years ago!

On day one we were picked up at the port in Alexandria on time by an amazing driver, Mohamed (Cairo traffic/drivers are the worst in the world and I spent much of the time with my eyes closed. I think Modhamed could rival any Indie 500 driver) and our wonderful tour leader, Hussen, then whisked away to Cairo in a wonderfully air conditioned van. After checking into our hotel, we met our darling guide/historian, Sherwet, and went to the Museum of Antiquities. My favorite museum in the world and, although my third visit there, I could spend weeks in it. The only Pharoah's mummy on display 30 years ago was Seti I and it was a privilege to be able to visit the new Mummy Room. Sherwet let us all have 30 minutes on our own (my husband is a builder and went straight to the tools section) before we were taken to a local restaurant for dinner and back to our hotel to freshen up. They picked us up later and took us to the Sound & Light Show at the pyramids. The show hasn't changed much, but I still loved seeing it again. I get chills when the lights come on and that deep voice says "Since the beginning of time..."

Day two began with check-out and a visit to the Giza Plateau to see the pyramids, Sphinx and the Solar Barge. I hadn't seen the Solar Barge and the building/display was amazing. Then we were driven to Saqqara, where we saw the step and bent pyramids and several mastabas. Only one mastaba was open on my first visit and I was amazed at how much work had been done in Saqqara since then. I think the carvings are more beautifully done here than in the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Luxor. Don't miss Saqqara if you have the time.

After a wonderful Stella/Star beer (in cans now and not the tall green bottles of years ago) at a local spot, Mohamed and Hussen drove us to Port Said where we boarded our cruise ship. I highly recommend using Memphis Tours when going to Egypt. They are so professional and we got to see so much more than with a group tour!

Incredible experience, would go back and do it all again in a second!

From the first email to the last goodbyes, this was an experience our family will never forget. As an American family with 3 small and adventurous boys, we were warned and sometimes hesitant about taking this trip. I am so pleased that we went ahead as we had an amazing experience. Memphis Tours were polite, professional and hard working. Always keeping us informed of plans and options, they were extremely helpful and friendly with the boys and we felt safe and treated with respect at all times. Our tour guide Medhat was a gem. We were easily able to communicate our wishes and make changes to plans at any time. We have made a new friend and hope to visit again! I highly recommend a visit to Egypt with Memphis Tours and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or travel with them again.

“Two Days to Cairo (depart Port Said, ends in Alexandria)”
, 10/29/12
We had a wonderful 2 days/1 night in Cairo with our Guide, Medhat Mahmoud Abd El azeem visiting the Pyramids, the Great Sphinx and numerous other historical sights. Medhat was very friendly and knowledgeable, easy to understand and made us feel very safe. Our driver, Mostafa Mohamed Hassen also did an excellent job negotiating through the chaotic traffic!
We would definitely recommend Memphis Tours to anyone wanting to see Cairo.

Overnight Trip to Cairo from Port Said Port
“Cairo and the Pyramids”
, 10/27/12
We booked a private overnight tour to Giza from our Cruise ship at Alexandria. Medhat El azeem was our guide and Mostafa Abu Ziad was our driver. Mostafa was able to navigate the congested and rapidly moving traffic with ease. The traffic is simply too chaotic to just have one person drive and be the guide. Our driver Mustafa took us to a Nile river cruise and we were about an hour early, concerned that he didn't leave us alone he waited with us until we were able to board the cruse and waited to pick us up and take us back to the hotel. He had a 16 hour day and was as pleasant as ever. The dinner cruise was great with a sprinkling of entertainment.
Medhat, our guide, spoke excellent english, took us to several important sites in our two day tour, the Great Pyramids, Sphynx, the steppes pyramid, the egyptioan Museum, the Muhamed ali mosque and mixed in a bit of shopping. Unfortunately we didn't have time to see the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar, but there's a reason to go back.
Medhad's knowledge of the sites and his experience in dealing withthe street vendors was invaluable. We weren't hassled at all, which was a major problem for anyone on the big bus tours. Medhat arranged for a Camel ride at the pyramids with Sharif who was also exceptional. He was trustworthy and after reluctantly giving him my camera for some photo he provided some exceptional shots for our once in a lifetime opportunity.

An Experience of a Lifetime!
, 2/10/11
Our excursion was fantastic. Although we got off to a late start (a fault of our own) the tour staff were extremely accommodating, they were friendly & very informative & we all got along very well. We thoroughly enjoyed the traditional Egyptian food at the restaurant near Cairo & most of all found the driving in Egypt to be very interesting. Coming from South Africa we have a reputation for our bad taxi drivers but in Egypt no one seems to mind how one drives which we found quite humorous! We did think we were going to be late catching the ship at the dock but our driver was excellent at manoeuvring through the traffic!
Yosri, who organised the tour for us through Memphis Tours was a great help with every enquiry I had from making the booking to the actual date of the tour.
