We went in late November and thanks to Morsy, we had the place to ourselves. Ahmed was very thorough and made sure we were taken care of throughout the day. The weather was very comfortable in the low 70s. You have to go inside the pyramids. Can't describe the feeling you get once you reach the tomb. Hagglers weren't too bad to us, but the tourist season has suffered so it has to be expected. If we ever get the chance to return, we will give Memphis Tours a call and hope Ahmed is still there.

We visited Egypt in December and we had a wonderful time! Memphis provided excellent service organizing our schedule. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. Our coordinator Mohamed Besheer and driver Mustafa were very helpful and attentive.
Our tour guide Ahmed Hameed was the best! He taught us so much about culture, history and everything we wanted to know. He is so passionate about his job. He is very caring and makes sure that you are comfortable and understand everything.

My family and I took two separate tours with Memphis tours and they were both excellent. The first was to Luxor, with our tour guide Abdu and driver Maggot. They arrived to pick us up promptly and spent the day giving us an incredibly in depth tour of the Valley of the Kings and the ancient temples. Lunch was provided and we were in a private car which was far superior to any of the mass tours we went on while in Egypt. Both were knowledgeable and committed to making our trip as informative and interesting as possible.

Our second tour with Memphis was to the pyramids in Cairo. Our tour guide this time was Emad Salem, who was also excellent. His tour of the Egyptian museum was fascinating, his passion for the material and extensive knowledge of Egyptian history was clear. Again we were treated to a private mini bus, and lunch was provided. Emad was able to adapt the tour for our needs and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with them both. Our driver was incredibly experienced and an excellent driver.

All round I would highly recommend Memphis, the quality of the tours, the personalised service were top class, and both our guides made us feel incredibly safe and welcome in Egypt.

We were recently in Cairo for 2 full days and had the airport meet and great and 2 x tours booked through Memphis. Right from the start they were super efficient and quick at doing all our bookings and responding to any emails we sent with questions. After a 5.5hr flight delay from Amman, we were relieved and happy to see Hussein and his smiley face - Hussein was excellent, he did the Visas and immigration process with us, was chatty the whole time giving us facts and information. He even tried to help a lady before us at the Visa counter who was travelling alone and experiencing some difficulty, what a superstar :) Hussein then helped us with all of our tours and was outstanding. Our first tour was a day trip to Luxor, well worth the money (although extremely long day 3am wake up to midnight arrival) - our guide in Luxor was Nadia was a wealth of information, simply impressive with what she knew and very friendly - the only bad part of this tour was our hotel for 'relaxing between end of tour and return to airport' - I dont remember the name of the hotel but it didnt even warrant 1star (in fact negative stars) - supposed to be in a 3 star hotel - the room felt dirty, there was no TV or even Radio, hair on the shower cubicle floor and in the shower grate, no linen on the beds (just old blankets), pillows were dirty and stained - we ended up going back to the Reception and waiting in the smoke filled lobby it was that bad. Shame that our brilliant day ended on that. Our 2nd tour was the Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis and Sakkara - our guide was Richie and he was also outstanding - another wealth of knowledge and friendly. You have 2 great guides :) - our drivers (sorry cant remember the names) were excellent, very brave with the Cairo traffic ! but we felt safe the whole time. Would highly recommend this Company (and would suggest that they change their hotel provider in Luxor)
