My husband, brother and I toured Egypt with Memphis tours recently. We had the most wonderful trip. Egypt is certainly an interesting place to visit - its history is unprecedented. Memphis looked after us every step of the way from being met at Cairo airport by Hassan, our driver Mr Humdy who kept us safe in the crazy Cairo traffic and Tarek our knowledgeable guide. Mena House hotel in Cairo is a wonderful oasis, overlooking the amazing Great Pyramid. Our Nile cruise on the Royal Lily was comfortable and a great base for exploring the temples and tombs of the Nile valley. Our guide traveled with us and helped us enjoy his country with his passion for its history and his patience with our many questions. We took a flight to Abu Simbel, a must do and stayed overnight in Aswan at the Movenpick hotel on Elephantine Island. Thank you to everyone for a fascinating holiday. Thank you also to Abdo Shawky who was excellent in helping to plan our trip; nothing was too much trouble for him. I would recommend Memphis Tours to anyone wanting to visit Egypt.
