First of all I would like to thank Memphis tours for the wonderful arrangements that they made for us, we felt very looked after and safe with Memphis tours from the time we landed in Cairo to the time we left.
When we landed we were met by a gentleman who was very pleasant and welcoming and helped us through immigration etc... after which we were transported to our hotel. Excellent idea to provide your guests with a phone with a local sim which made us fee[ secure and constantly in touch with Memphis. After settling us in the Mena house hotel, he arranged the pick up time for the next day.
Next morning our guide came to collect us on time and she spoke excellent English and had tremendous knowledge on the history of Egypt, we really enjoyed our time with her, she was always on time and very kind too.
All drivers were excellent and very much on time unfortunately I dont remember the names of the drivers in Cairo, there was a very nice driver who waited for us at the Four Seasons hotel and then dropped us to the train station, he was really patient and caring.
Train to Luxor was on time and quite comfortable, on reaching luxor again someone was waiting on the platform for us and helped us with our luggage, he dropped us on our nile ship. The Sonesta St George was exactly what we expected of it , very comfortable and nice with superb service, all the staff took great care of us, specially the dining room and kitchen. Here we were met by our guide, a very nice person and again with a lot of knowledge of all the historical sites we visited, he was very accommodating to all our needs. Our driver again an excellent driver and got us everywhere on time. In Aswan again we were taken to the airport on time and got our flight on time. Reached Cairo and were met again by a gentleman who dropped us to the Kempinski.
Finally on the last day he came to pick us up for the airport and helped us through check in etc... for our flight back to Doha.
In a nutshell Memphis was absoloutely superb with their timings and we were never left on our own, this really impressed us. We had a great family holiday thanks to the Memphis family, we didnt face a single problem with Transport, Timings, Tickets , Visits , Food etc... and I really can't think of any negative points, we would certainly recommended Memphis tours to all our friends and family
