“Wonderful and informed guide/driver = great once-in-a-lifetime experience”
, 8/4/13
We decided to forego the "cruise excursion" and book with Memphis Tours instead for a day/night in Cairo, from Port Said, and meeting back with the cruise in Alexandria. I cannot say enough good things about our guide, Sherif Shaban Hendy, or driver Nasser; and our experience in general. Sherif has vast knowledge of Egyptian history, and he was so excited to teach us some of it. We felt privileged just to be with somebody so knowledgable about his country and its history. We never felt unsafe, and we were given good advice with sometimes-aggressive vendors at the Giza Pyramids. Our experience was a relatively hassle-free visit; and a large photograph of our family on camels with the Pyramids in the background now hangs in my office. Waking to sunrise over the Pyramids from the Mena House was simply otherworldly. Our "almost 3" year old blonde daughter became the subject of many a photograph by friendly Egyptians. Sharif and Nasser were so good with her. We had the opportunity to meet some other guides along the way who were equally friendly. We travel a lot, and this was easily one of the best experiences of our lives. Pretty strong words for a 24-hour tour, I know.
Wonderful Tours

We sailed on a 30 day Cruise aboard the Orina last October/November and two of the stops were Port Said and Safaga. We chose Memphis Tours ( There is a Memphis Street in Port Said) 
for day trips to The Pyrimids from Port Said and Luxor and the Valley of the Kings from Safaga. The trip to the Pyrimids included the Cairo Museum and the Tutankamoun Exibition. The Guide Ahmed Farahat and the Driver Sayed Helwan were great company and very knowledable. There was only two of us on the trip (my wife and I) so we had a great day with good food included in a reataurant overlooking the Pyrimids. 
The trip to Luxor and the valley of the Kings included the Karnak Temple and entry to three of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The guide who's name I have forgotten was very knowledgeable also, I think he had something to do with the Egyptian tourest board.
After the two experiances I would not use anyone else for tours of Egypt.
Prices for the tours included all food and all entry costs.

 For the tourist who is not brave enough to book into a budget hotel and find their way around with 'Rough Guide' or 'Lonely Planet', but does not want the indignity of being herded around by a guide (however well meaning) on a group tour, Memphis Tours is the answer.
Having a car and driver at one's disposal, as well as the services of a well trained tour guide, means that one's time is used effectively and that there is a degree of flexibility.
Prior to my departure I was in constant email contact with a Mr Shawky who answered all my queries patiently and very effectively. On arrival I was met by a Memphis representive (Maged) who was always just a call away, on the cell phone provided for my use by the company. The Memphis Tours representitive in Luxor was also most pleasant and efficient - and my guide there, Heba El Noby, was great. However, my Guide in Cairo and Alexandria, Hosam Ibrahim Bashandy, was particularly good and did much to make my visit memorable. I covered all the tourist sites that I had hoped to see in this very short introductory trip, with a most helpful commentary ... but experienced so much more, with a relaxed feeling of informality, which gave the experience an added dynamic.
Sadly I do not know the name of my driver ...but his skill in negotiating the traffic in Cairo and Alexandira was awesome!
