Hi we are plannig to visit egypt in two weeks and found a travel agency by internet name memphis tour?
somebody know this agency? is trustable? or recomend anotherone?
I used ABC club tours and i loved my trip. It was 9 days, with a 4 day jordan petra extension. The days were long, but honestly there is alot to see. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He provided some extra tours (for a reasonable expense) on days where we were scheduled to be on our own. He really took care of everything, tipping, seriously everything, so that we could enjoy ourselves. Let em even add that one person on our tour had a bit of travellers sickness and he stopped off at the pharmacy and bought them medicine (at his expense).
Good luck, enjoy!
I am unable to recommend Memphis Tours, recently a member cancelled her holiday due to their poor handling of her hotel reservations (even though she had paid months in advance, and they offered her hotels which were not at all what she wanted.
Perhaps this was a one off incident ? but having known about it I cannot just leave it and not tell you.
I would prefer if you take a look at this list which has been created from TA member recommendations :
Continental, Future and Excellency are major local travel companies, and Real Life Egypt and Heart of Egypt are smaller operations, but nevertheless offering good services especially relative to day trips.
There is also another list of private tour guides, which may be of use to you if you want to book hotels with an agency (or direct yourselves) and then arrange guides in the cities you wish to visit :
Hope this helps, also please look at the FAQ's in the sticky at the top of the forum page, this covers a lot of basic subjects.
