Memphis Tours was a delight to work with: They responded promptly and executed flawlessly. They created a fabulous week-long tour itinerary (incorporating my feedback) involving tours in Cairo, Alexandria and a 4-day Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Every transfer - plane, car, boat, carriage - was timely and seamless, and the guides were all top notch.

We did the 8day tour with the Nile cruise and over night train. The company had everything organized for us so we just had to sit back and enjoy ourselves. I definitely recommend Memphis tours for your Egypt trip. Would be returning to them if I visits Egypt again. Only gave 4 stars because on our itinerary it says we get to eat with a local family but my coordinator seemed like he didn’t know anything about that and said it’s probably something extra.

I just returned from a 15 day of Egypt organized by Memphis Tours. I was connected to them through the online website Travel Local., and I am so glad to have worked with them.

Firstly, I worked with Amira to build a comprehensive itinerary. I had already booked my flights and was travelling on my own. With this information she put together a plan for a personal guided tour…a 15 day actions packed tour - including domestic flights and a 4 day cruise - well over 40’sites, attractions or events. I communicated easily and often with Amira via email, who was always responsive and thorough, providing answers or making suggestions. When the itinerary was finalized the payment was made with ease. I then received a detailed plan and e-tickets for my domestic flights before departing for my trip.

Prior to leaving for Egypt I received a text message from the guide who would be meeting me at the airport, Ahmed Amin. He was really amazing and assured me that he would be meeting me when I landed. And he, and his orange tie, were there just as discussed. :) It was very reassuring, as a female solo traveller, to have the guidance and support right from the start of my adventure. He was so easy to talk to, informative and fun to be around. We also did a food tour together that had me stuffed…experiencing amazing Egyptian food, and laughing when we got caught in an unexpected and uncharacteristic downpour. Watching the storm together, laughing, while eating Feteer and drinking mint tea will always be a great memory I have of the trip. Ahmed is really efficient, great conversationalist and dependable. Every interaction I had with him was positive.

My first hotel was Cairo Pyramids - clean hotel and friendly staff. The food for breakfast was always great and the servers attentive. I was also able to organize a driver through the hotel, to take me into Cairo and wait for me, while I did some site-seeing and shopped at the City Star mall. The driver, Ahmed, was amazing. It wasn’t cheap but a safe alternative to Uber or taxi.

I was then paired up with Egyptologist Osama Othman. We spent many of my days in Egypt touring together…Giza, Cairo, Alexandria. At the beginning and end of my trip. I was so impressed with his level of knowledge and how well he was able to teach me about each new wonder I was experiencing. I was in aw most of my trip and Osama was definitely part of making the experiences that much more meaningful and impactful. As a bonus, he is a really great photographer and guided me to take some really great pics, and graciously took photos of me too. Nice to have photos of me that weren’t just selfies.
Our driver, Said, was very funny and always had a smile on his face. He is an amazing driver in the crazy Cairo traffic. :) I felt totally at ease. I always looked forward to seeing Osama and him at the start of my days.

I then jumped on a Nile Air flight to Luxor (Great flight - fast and provided food and drinks too) and was met by Ibrahim. He was super friendly and transported me to the Sonesta St. George Hotel. A beautiful beautiful hotel. Great location too. He made a suggestion to add a night city tour with him, on horse and carriage, and I am so glad I took him up on the suggestion. We had a great time riding around the city, saw so much - including a stop to watch sugar cane house being made and enjoy a lovely glass of it. The conversation was great and he provided a fun evening. Don’t want to forget to mention that the carriage driver was really sweet. He was fun!

I then met my guide, Wael abd El hameed, who would be with me for Luxor, a four day cruise on the Iberotel Crown Emperor; with all of the stops and tours on the way to Aswan, and then Aswan itself. We spent a lot of time together with many, many places to visit. He was very well versed in all of the history and adept at explaining it. He would give me thorough explanations and then provide lots of time for me to explore on my own and take photos. He really went above and beyond to help make it a positive travel experience. He suggested itinerary adjustments and additions that really enhanced my trip. I would have passed up on Abel Simbel without his input- which would have been a definite lose. He is easy to talk to and fun.

The cruise (Iberotel Crown Emperor) was really good. Clean and spacious room. Very friendly staff. I especially loved the staff in the dining room - joking with me and making me feel so welcome. S/C Ahmed chatted with me when I was all alone and made great suggestions for things to try in the buffet. He was quick with his service too.

I disembarked the cruise in Aswan and checked into the City Max hotel. Honestly, I was not thrilled with this hotel - not the cleanest experience. (The bed was clean at least!) The suite was tired and I didn’t want to take my shoes off and walk on the dirty carpeted floor. This hotel was the only part of the tour package I wasn’t thrilled with. It was only one night so I didn’t make an issue if it. Memphis Tours might want to think about using a different hotel in Aswan.

I returned to Cairo with Egypt Air. (Fast no fuss trip - no food) Was back with Osama and Said for my last few days.

I had one free day - which I took advantage of by relaxing, heading back out to shop, and meet up with a friend. I was glad for the snippet of time to do nothing structured.

It was a whirlwind trip and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend this company to experience Egypt. They are knowledgeable, organized and friendly. They made sure I was well taken care of the entire time - and as a solo female traveller I felt secure. When I go back I’ll definitely be contacting them again. I still need to see the Res Sea! :)

First of all, if you can afford to travel to Egypt, GO.  It is an experience that you will never forget.  It will open all your senses.  I strongly recommend Memphis Tours for their thoroughness, details, highly knowledgeable tour guides (every guide got one or multiple degrees in Egyptology, some working on a second Master's), and communications.
Back in late September 2022, when the Coronavirus was rearing its head again and the threat of the flu and RSV virus were looming on the horizon, I made plans for this trip to Egypt. It would be our first trip outside of the country since the Covid pandemic.
I was first drawn into Travelodeal for the inexpensive price. But after understanding the fine print, the economy package would not work for me and my family.  Also, I did not like the bait-and-switch and pressured selling tactics.   I went through a list of recommended tours and sent out my emails requesting for information.
Memphis Tours was the first to respond.  Others responded days and weeks later.   I figured if it took them days to respond to my request when I had not paid, it might take them longer if I encounter any difficulties during the trip.  By then, I was so impressed with Memphis Tours that I did not bother responding to other tours.
Samaa Osama Elnagdi was my Travel Consultant from Memphis Tours.  To rate her FIVE Stars would be an insult.  We know there are Five Stars that border on 4 1/2.  This is a true Five Stars, bordering on Ten.  She was prompt, answering all my questions and alleviating my obsessive-compulsive disorders.  She responded to my emails at all times of the day, even on weekends.  I booked my own flights to Egypt and the dates did not match the tour timetable, but she was able to rearrange and made it works.  I added Abu Simbel and Alexandria to my tours.  Money well spent.  If you are going to spend good money for a once-in-a-lifetime trip, you may as well spend extra to see everything that needs to be seen.  Sama was honest.  Never tried to sell me anything. She sent me a thorough itinerary describing in detail each day of my trip. She booked for intra-Egypt flights. There are contact phone numbers in case of emergency.  When the airline changed their flight numbers and the Nile cruise ship changed from Minerva to Royale, she kept us informed. I was so impressed with her thoroughness and offered to give her a Tip for her excellent service, but she declined.  
Flying in January, with inclement weather, I did not want connecting flight.  As such, I chose Egypt Air, flying out of Dulles Airport in Virginia.  We arrived in at 5:30 in the morning in Cairo (a 10 hrs flight to and 12 hrs back).
The Tour Manager waited for us inside the airport, after passing security, before we got to the Baggage.  From then on, we are taken on a private tour, just our family of Four.  We were doted on and pampered every step of the way.  The communications are excellent.  We felt that Memphis Tour had created a bubble for us.  We felt protected and safe the whole trip.  We never had to wait for them.  Actually, we were often a few minutes late.  Even when we were early, the tour guide would be there in the lobby, waiting patiently.  "And smile when he/she sees me, 'cause they made that way".  An old American song.  
We stayed at the Hilton Pyramid Golf Hotel for the first night.  We were tired and did nothing but slept most of the day. Though check-in was not until 3 pm, we were allowed in our room before 9 am. The hotel has a bomb-sniffing dog, very friendly.  And a metal detector before you entered the building.  We felt very safe.  The hotel is old but clean.  Unfortunately, it is in the middle of nowhere.  You cannot walk outside the hotel, except for a dirt path around the golf course behind the hotel (cannot walk on the golf course).  Our attempt to cross the highway was unsuccessful.  The restaurant in the complex served really good food and the prices were reasonable.
We flew to Luxor and visited Karnak and Luxor Temple. From the cruise, you can walk to the Temple and the market. We did an optional horse carriage ride and sugar cane drink. We got to see how the people live, children playing in small streets.
The Nile cruise is quite memorable with "pirates" attached their canoes to the ship and trying to sell their items to the guests on the upper deck. We visited the West bank seeing the Royal Cemetery, the Valley of the Kings, and Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and a brief stop at Colossi of Memnon. Then upstream to the Nile, we went. The cruise ship was small and perhaps a third full. But the food preparations were extraordinary. Foods were served buffet but gourmet. There are chefs preparing fresh pasta, Egyptian foods, and carving meats.
We stopped at Edfu and Kom Ombo for the temples. The cruise continued to Aswan where we visited the High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk at the stone quarries, and Temple of Philae.
Our tour guide Eid Mohamed is unbelievably great. He loves his country. He loves its history. He gets excited when he tells us about the landmarks. We felt very safe with him. He was always early. When we were divided with the horse carriages, he let me and my son go ahead and he stayed with my wife and daughter to make sure that they are protected. My whole family really felt safe during the whole visit with him. We did visit the Nubian village and got to handle a baby crocodile.
We did an optional excursion to Abu Simbel. It is a long drive. But the view is magnificent. It is a must excursion and we are glad that we did it.
We then flew back to Cairo and stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and Casino. This hotel has the best breakfast buffet of all my travels. The rooms are modern, and clean and have nice balconies. The staffs are kind and very accommodating. They allow us to check out late since our flight was not till the evening. The Gym is large. There are restaurants and of course Casino inside the Hotel. This is luxury accommodation, taking care of all our needs. Our bags automatically appeared in our rooms and down to the lobby.
We visited the Pyramids of Giza, and rode the Camels (I tipped generously but thought the Camel guide was a bit greedy. He wanted us to tip him while we were riding the camels instead of back at the base so he does not have to share his tips with his boss), visit the Sphinx, and visited the Egyptian Museum and Khan El Khalili market. We did not buy anything as we were not interested in price negotiating.

We did a day tour of Alexandria. We visited the Qaitbay Fort, the Roman catacombs, and the Alexandria library.

A special shout out to Chiko, our driver for Cairo. He weaved in and out of traffic like a Nascar driver, but without crashing. He thoughtfully brought us water bottles and candies at times. He was up early before sunrise to get us to the airport on time for an early flight to Luxor. He drove us around town the whole day in Cairo in the mids of traffic madness. He worked late into the night on our last day, delivering us safely to the airport for our flight home.

Overall, I am very impressed with Memphis Tours for this fantastic trip. Their careful attention to detail, their selection of very knowledgeable tour guides, the extensive itinerary, and high-caliber drivers. They have been doing this for a while.
I can recommend them highly without any reservations.

Nile Cruise - Luxor to Aswan. tours in Luxor, Kom Ombo, Aswan. our tour guide Mohammad Aswani was EXCELLENT. He is extremely Knowledgeable, gave in depth information that was so interesting and relatable, spoke well and clear making sure we all understood, showed and explained details; he made the trip amazing for us ! He went above and beyond with assistance on the cruise, transportation, culture guiding and any other help we needed. the tour guide makes all the difference when touring Egypt's treasures, having someone who can relate every detail in a fun. safe, learning environment makes the experience even better! We highly recommend Mohammad Aswani as a tour guide to make the trip even more memorable. Jan 2023 Larry/Colleen Canadians

We used Memphis for a Nile cruise as well as a tour of Cairo. Overall the guides were knowledgeable and pleasant. The ship was not so great (i posted info on that under Sonesta Sun Goddess). The payment process was really a bit odd. They required final payment in cash but when we had to pay the tour manager said he would take a credit card.

Overall Memphis did a good job but the ship reflects on them since they chose it for us so I cannot give them my full endorsement. They should explain certain things about the ship to manage expectations

I highly recommend Memphis tours. Our guide Emad was GREAT. He was so nice and extremely knowledgeable. We did three different tours with Memphis tours, the pyramids, going to Alexandria, and one more where we walked around downtown, got jewelry and oils. The staff at Memphis tours are extremely friendly and attentive. We used them as our transfer to and from the airport, as well as our our excursions. Not only did we have fun and have new experiences, We learned SO much. I cannot explain how knowledgeable Emad is. Our tours went over time every day and Emad did not seem to mind. He also had us try Egyptian falafel and koshary and I have been thinking about it ever since. I will definitely go back and I will most definitely book with Memphis tours again.

We were quite rushed in the Egyptian Museum and the guide made up a truly wild story about the coffin from KV55 rather than just saying he didn't know. That said, the pyramids and camel ride while there was a great time. After we had lunch at a nearby restaurant before our guide took us to the Wadi El Malouk School for hand made carpets and I cannot recommend that highly enough as a shop and experience of seeing carpets being woven by hand.

We used Memphis tours january 2023 and had the absolutely best trip of our lives. Amira was amazing at planning our itinerary and the never ending requests and changes. Even was able to accommodate our daughter add on the week before our trip! Our tour guides were all amazing! The second we landed we met Ahmed in the airport who got us our visas and transferred us to our hotel to go over our itinerary. I typically don’t use guides but they handled everything from hotels to transportation to domestic flights in Egypt. We didn’t have to lift a finger. Everyone was amazing and we can’t wait to go back. We visited Cairo, luxor, and Hurghada and if was first class and private! We can’t say enough how amazing the entire team was. My sister has already started planning her trip to Egypt now with Memphis tours! I am now looking to see what other countries Memphis tours offers trips to! 10:/10 recommend!!

Had dreamed of going to Egypt since childhood. The trip exceeded all expectations- amazing places, wonderful people, and great food. Our guide Mr. Mahmoud Sayed was excellent with his knowledge as well as organizational capabilities. Joseph and Ahmed in Cairo were wonderful as well. They even were able to find a bag we had lost at the Cairo airport. Would highly recommend this trip and Memphis Tours.
