What To Expect

Valley of the Kings
At first glance, the Valley of the Kings, also known as the Valley of the Gates of the Kings, seems like no more than a sun-blasted gorge of generic red rock, but underneath all of its dust lay the tombs of 63 of the most important pharaohs in the history of Ancient Egypt. Used as a burial chamber for nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC, Discovered by Howards Carter in an excavation expedition in 1922, one of the most important tombs found in the Valley of the Kings is the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun and all of his treasures. The Valley of the Kings is located on the west bank of the Nile River near Luxor. It is the most famous site for having unique collections of tombs and breathtaking ancient ruins.

Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari
In terms of visual impact from afar, there is no rival to Hatshepsut’s Temples. The unique multi-tiered structure nestled up against the limestone cliffs at the shoulder of the river valley is a truly stunning sight. The uniqueness of its layout mirrors that of the pharaoh responsible for building it.
Hatshepsut was the only female pharaoh in the history of Ancient Egypt. She came to power during the New Kingdom after the death of her father, Tuthmose I, and her half-brother and husband, Tuthmose II, who succeeded her father on the throne.

Colossi of Memnon
One of the biggest tourist attractions in Luxor, the Colossi of Memnon gained its popularity due to its majestic appearance and for the mysterious sounds emitted by the northern colossus statue at every sunrise. In the West Bank of Luxor Egypt, two magnificent twin statues image of pharaoh Amenhotep III and two smaller statues carved by his feet (one being his wife and the other his mother), stands graciously in the horizon of the magnificent Luxor horizons.
The two statues, each measuring 60 feet tall, stands in the entrance of Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple. They are famously named by the name of Colossi of Memnon due to a phenomenon produced by one of the statues after an earthquake.

Temple of Karnak
When visiting Karnak, you are paying a visit to the heart of Egypt during the New Kingdom. This huge temple complex was the center of the ancient faith while power was concentrated at Thebes (modern day Luxor) and its significance is reflected in its enormous size. In addition to its religious significance, it also served as a treasury, administrative center, and palace for the New Kingdom pharaohs. It is considered as the largest temple complex ever constructed anywhere in the world.
It developed over a period of 1500 years, added to by generation after generation of pharaohs and resulting in a collection of temples, sanctuaries, pylons, and other decorations that is unparalleled throughout Egypt.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Luxor Temple
This temple might be the greatest testament to why Luxor has earned its nickname, “The World’s Largest Outdoor Museum”. Luxor Temple is located in the modern city of Luxor, which is built on the site of the ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes.
The temple is one of the best-preserved of all of the ancient monuments with large amounts of structure, statuary and relief carvings still intact, making it one of the most impressive visits in the Luxor area and all of Egypt, adding significantly to its allure is the juxtaposition that its setting provides. The modern city begins on one side and the Nile drifts by on the other. There are few places in Egypt where one is put so immediately and clearly in touch with the extraordinary length of Egypt’s history.

Excellent Tour of both banks in Luxor as well as Aswan area

My wife and I took Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor organized by Memphis Tours. We had an excellent experience visiting all of the key sites including Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu Temple, Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor Temple among other amazing sites. We had an excellent guide, Hany Refaat, an Egyptologist who has an incredible amount of knowledge about the history of this region and the country as a whole. I strongly suggest getting a really good guide who can help provide context and background to everything you see. Hany added a lot of value to our visit. All in all, we would strongly recommend visiting "Upper" Egypt and were very happy we chose Memphis Tours to organize everything.

Our guide, Hany, was an exceptional expert on the tombs, their significance in the time of the Kings and the meanings of the scriptures/art work.
Hany always shared “the most important” facts of where we were visiting!
It was a memorable trip thanks to where we went and Hany’s interest in providing us w detailed information.
Epic trip & an amazing guide

We enjoyed 10 days in Egypt highlighted by 7 in and around Luxor and Aswan. The organization provided by Memphis and Majestic World was on point with all details handled and a small group travelers well cared for and meeting all expectations.

What I never anticipated was a guide as knowledgeable and passionate as Hany Refaat, Egyptologist who was out guide for 7 days. Hany is amazing, really over the top with enthusiasm and extreme detail regarding each and every site throughout upper Egypt including a cruise from Aswan to Luxor with points in between. Hany took the time on our cruise to expand on our tours and fill in the blanks for a few of us.

If thinking about Touring Egypt and interested in the history and archeology of this area this an amazing choice and you will not be disappointed. Most importantly, insist on Hany!
Just amazing

Five Stars is not enough!

We actually took a 2 day tour from the cruise ship docked in Safaga. Originally, we had tried to take the ship's 2-day tour but that was fully booked extremely quickly.
I'm glad things worked out this way - it was so much better!
Five stars is not enough!
First of all, the cruise company changed the itinerary at very short notice, only notifying us once we were on board. Memphis tours were very helpful and managed to change all the dates for the tour as required with no fuss. Then on the day of the tour itself, we were delayed in getting off the ship by 3 hours due to local difficulties. I contacted our guide who waited patiently and greeted us as soon as we appeared.
Our tour guide, Mr Mohamed Saad, was absolutely brilliant. His command of English was first-rate which certainly increased the value of the tour. So very knowledgeable and open to discussion and explanation. He consulted us as to what we wanted to concentrate on during the tour and arranged the itinerary accordingly.
He arranged an extra hot-air balloon ride for us on the second morning which was wonderful.
Unfortunately, my partner was not feeling well and we had to cut the tour short and return to the ship. All changes were made quickly and efficiently with no demur; he even had the hotel prepare a packed lunch in case we wanted it during the return journey.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others and will certainly use them again in the future.
