“Enjoyable day at Alexandria with Memphis Tours”
Reviewed May 6, 2010

Ahmed Farahat picked up us on time in our hotel in Cairo, he and his driver were very nice with us since the beginning, in the road to Alexandria, we enjoyed of traditional Egyptian music and Ahmed gave us a lot information about Egypt and its historical places.

At Alexandria, we started in the Catacombs; Ahmed entered with us and started to explain which were the ladders’ sarcophagus and the mix of the Egyptian and Greece art. Then we arrive in the Pompay´s Pillar and Ahmed told us the history of why the Pillar name´s is Pomapay…

After that, we arrived in the Qaitbay Citade one of the most important defensive strongholds in Egypt by Sultan Al-Ashraf…

For the lunch time, we and Ahmed went to a traditional Egyptian restaurant where we could enjoy eating sea food xD. Finally we arrived at the Montazha Palace, where you can get pleasure from the view offered by the flowers, trees, the sea and a beautiful sunset.

We really recommended Menphis tour and its tour guides, they all time will be attending you and will try to bright you the best service and company… its guide compliance with everything that was offer in the tour and much more…

Ahmed thanks a lot for your time, for your kindness, for all the pictures, for all your explanations and histories about Egypt and for been so helpful.

“Knowledgeable guides, professional & personalized.”
Reviewed May 2, 2010

From the sales person in the Egypt office who helped us select our itinerary, to the very knowledgeable tour guides who picked us up and spent the day with us, Memphis Tours was extremely helpful, professional, safe and most of all FUN! Thank you Hamdy, Mohamed & Heba - it was great! I definitely recommend Memphis Tours.

“Very Efficient, Friendly and Expert Guidance”
Reviewed April 26, 2010

I would like to note the excellent activity of your guide Ms Eman for the tours we booked in Luxor.

She has guided us very efficiently, accurately and successfully.

Under her guidance and support, the tours were truly enjoyable with her providing detailed good information and establishing a good and friendly contact with our family.

We highly recommend her for the most demanding of such activities and would specifically ask for her when we return back to Egypt in the near future.

Memphis Tours just need to keep this up!

“Good trip from Sharm to Cairo for 1 day tour”
Reviewed April 26, 2010

We got picked up from our hotel and taken to the airport in the memphis mini bus, the guy took us all the way to the check in desk and made sure we were ok to get on the flight. We were met at the other end by another memhis mini bus. I booked before I left for holiday online and paid 100 Euro deposit with 300 left to pay.
On arrival they asked us to pay the remaining money, but all the paperwork had all this about paying by credit card with a letter from your bank etc. Anyway they told us we had to pay in cash, no other choice. So i had to withdraw the money and hand in that day, there went all my spending money as I was hoping it was going on the credit card for the next month!
Trip was fantastic, we (me and my boyfriend) were the only ones in the bus, and had our own personal tour guide for the day.
The price was the same as what our tour guide was selling with the same inclusions so we could have gone with either. It just meant I knew we were going and what day before we left.
He took us to some extra places as we had some spare time so we saw the egyptian cotton factory and a papyrus factory which werent mentioned on the itinary.
Very well organised and a fantastic trip, I would recommend going and seeing it all. Feel I have now ticked the box so no need to go again but great thing to have done. Lunch that was included was very much like the all inclusive we were getting at the hotel, same rice and chicken mass produced thing, some soup and desserts on offer and bread. Was nice, but I was bored of that food from my hotel!
Still mcdonalds at cairo airport on the way back was there if we needed it!

“Desert Safari on Buggy - Brilliant fun, sights and photos!”
Reviewed April 25, 2010

We went on the desert safari on 19th April and had a great day. Picked up by Mohammed (who was a relaxed and fun guide) at the hotel and had a typical crazy Cairo traffic journey out of the city which was good as we got to see the real Cairo outside the city centre. We then each had a 250cc dune buggy and went out with a guide in the desert. The buggies were excellent and had such a laugh racing over sand dunes, doing skids and jumps – came back with a massive grin and feeling like a 15 year old again. Also got to see a number of Pyramids and sacrificial altar which made for good photos. After washing of the mud and sand we had a Egyptian style lunch which could of fed a bus load of people – If you have a spare day and want to do something different then this is a must!
