I have been traveling for most of my adult life and rather extensively for the past 12 years. I am always highly involved in the planning of my journeys. At the time I made my decision to travel to Egypt and Jordan with my sister-in-law for 16 days, I stumbled upon Memphis Tours by reading about them on TA and was very surprised of their great reviews. But still I was hesitant about working with a company I had never used before or even heard of. After thorough research, I finally decided to use their service for my trip.
On our arrival at Cairo busy airport very late at night, it was a great relief to see our tour leader, Mr. Tarek Magdy waiting for us and ready to take care of everything immediately. From the moment I met Tarek, his top priority seemed to be crafting an experience that suited our taste and temperament and I knew that our trip was in professional hands.
Tarek made sure that our days and nights were filled with a well balanced combination of activities. His recommendations for the Opera House in Cairo and a hot air balloon ride in Luxor were fantastic and added extra spice to our memorable trip.
I was truly blown away by Tarek's level of efficiency and professionalism. And also at his personal attention to our needs, particularly when we needed him the most with a few unexpected events. I cannot say enough good things about Tarek, who was incredibly helpful throughout our trip and showed diligent care and effort in assisting us. He really exudes kindness. I highly recommend Tarek for his wonderful personality, his vast knowledge and his customized viewing of this mysterious and ancient land.
All of our guides have been great company and have provided terrific insight into the places we have visited. We met with an Egyptologist, Mr. Ahmed Farahat, in Cairo and Alexandria. He made our visit unforgettable and inspirational. And in Aswan and Luxor, we also met Egyptologist Mr. Ahmed Gomaa (nicknamed Friday) who was very attentive and sensitive to our needs for flexibility and time to explore. Both gentleman were very friendly, enthusiastic and had colorful and lively stories about the history, art and culture of Egypt.
Driving in Egypt requires mastery and Hassan, our driver, made this difficult task very easy.
Overall, I recommend using Memphis Tours when traveling through Egypt.
A journey to Egypt is a journey through time and it awakens our souls.
