I was particularly impressed by Mohamed Salam in Cairo though Maha and Abdou were also good. I would recommend Memphis Tours to any of my family and friends who come to Egypt.
This is the second time we have used Memphis Tours, the first time in Alexandria, and would recommend their services to anyone visiting Egypt.
Visited October 2011
which allowed for us to be met at the Port and then taken to Cairo to visit the Museum,
Sphinx and Pyramids with a Buffet lunch included. We then rejoined the Ship and travelled to Safaga. We were met again and taken to Luxor to visit The Valley of the Kings, Karnac Temple and other places of interest. This included a short boat trip on the Nile and a buffet Lunch at a very nice hotel.
We were very happy with the prompt and courteous service provided by the drivers and
the very knowledgeable guides. Although the tours were over long distances we were never concerned that the schedule would cause any problems in returning us to our ship on time.
Marwa was most helpful with the initial planning for our tours and the payment over the Internet was very secure.
It is our opinion that Memphis Tours can be relied on to make your tours in Egypt most enjoyable. The costs were very competetive with the tours offered by the Cruise Ship and from the reports we heard from fellow passengers who used the ship tour, ours was a much more personal service.
Transport was by comfortable Air-conditioned Mini-Bus.
