“A marvellous sight”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

It was truly magical to see the Sphinx after years of seeing images on television or in books and magazines.

“Sphinx”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I not believe that human beings in the old ages could build Sphinx and Pyramid without support from outer space.

“Great!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Not at large as one could expect. Yet a chance to see what has made this country famous. It was a pleasure to be guided by Nesreer from Memphis Tours. She knows her stuff.
