Our driver Said was good, Ihabi, our tour guide was knowledgeable on the history of these pyramids and the Egyptian history. We learn some since it was difficult to remember all the names he mentioned.”

What a fabulous introduction to the Pyramids and history of Egypt. Gerges from Emo Tours was an excellent guide - knowledgeable, polite, professional and relaxed. More importantly he was so passionate about Egyptian history and imparting his knowledge on us. We loved going inside the tomb of the Great Pyramid (well worth the extra 400 EGP) and Sakkara too was really interesting. The oldest pyramid and human made structure in the world deserves to be on your list of things to see, not just the pyramids. Our driver Ahmed was also awesome. Great safe driver and also very professional. 5 stars and More for this trip.”

Great tour. We loved having a female guide. She had a background working as an archeologist so was very knowledgeable and also fun to be with.”

I enjoyed this tour very much.
Excellent driver and excellent guide.
Mohammed is an archaeologist at the Gizeh pyramids and temple site.
Very interesting explanation in more than acceptable English, and he is an amazing bottomless source of knowledge. That guy really knows everything. He can even read hieroglyphics!
He also has the talent to adopt himself to the level of the audience. The more you ask, the more he will tell you, since he feels you're interested.
Some call it a disadvantage that you have to spend quite some time in traffic jams before you get to Gizeh, Saqqara and back to Cairo City. I didn't mind. It's part of the journey. This way you see "another" Cairo then just the one of luxury hotels and archeologic sites.
Thanks for the exciting day!”

This was a great tour. Our guide Ola was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we learned a lot from her. The pace of the tour is very pleasant / not too overwhelming and there is not too much travel time between stops. Thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in learning about the history of the pyramids and their evolution.”

This was an excellent day tour of the pyramids and the Egyptian. Our tour guide Ahmed was very pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. The trip also includes visits to a papyrus shop and oils shop that seem like tourist traps. However our guide Ahmed was pretty upfront beforehand about these shops so we skipped those. The tour includes a nice Egyptian lunch. Overall I highly recommend this trip.”

Amr Khattab - our guide - was very knowledgable person. He explained in details about all historical sites and instructed not to talk to sellers/camel owner since they rip you off most of the time. He was patient with our stupid question. Highly recommended this trip to anyone who want to enjoy the day.”

I liked it so much, no doudt about interest.
Guide was nice and he knows very well about history.
Starting from Great Pyramids, then Sphinx, Pyramid in stairs, bended Pyramids, inside mud Pyramids : Everything has interest to be visited.
It was a great day.
Guide brings you to "Museum of Papyrus" but in fact it is a shop.”

We had an absolutely amazing trip to Cairo. It started with this tour. Marwan, our tour guide, was the perfect companion. He is a spectacular wealth of knowledge and knew exactly when and where to go. He also proved to be a highly skilled photographer, happily snapping the best shots of our trip throughout the day.
We enjoyed our day with Marwan so much we booked two more days with him. If you are visiting Cairo you must see if Marwan is available to show you around. He made a great trip a perfect trip.”

I had a wonderful experience visiting the Giza Pyramids, Memphis, and Saqqara Pyramid with my tour guide (Marwan) and driver (Ahmed). Marwan and Ahmed were both fantastic, and the tour covered everything I wanted to see. Marwan was very knowledgeable of all of the sites and really went out of his way to make sure I was getting everything out of my experience that I wanted. I only wish I had more time so that I could take more tours!”

Gerges and Saeed were both great, fun, hospitable, informative and looked after us so well thru out the hot and long day out in the sun.
I got some amazing photos thanks to Gerges knowing the best spots for the shots. Saeed and Gerges make a great team and work well together. They both have a great sense of humour and are friendly and very easy to talk to. We would recommend this tour and if possible, ask for Gerges and Saeed. Gerges has a deep knowledge about the history of Giza and the Pyramids and you will certainly come away with many facts to share. Thank you!”

I booked a full day tour to Pirámides, Sakkara and Memphis and Emo Tours Egypt made and couldn’t have been happier. Our tour guide, Sayed, was so passionate and knowledgeable. His English was perfect. I was so impressed by his knowledge of Egyptian history. Our driver , Ahmet, was also extremely helpful and did a wonderful job navigating us through the hectic Cairo traffic and went out of his way to drop us off close to the entrances.
It is such a shame that tourists are avoiding coming to Egypt because they think it is unsafe. Not once did I feel that safety was an issue. I also found the locals to be so welcoming and polite. I have travelled extensively around the world and, from my experience, Egypt is an entirely safe place to visit. I never once felt anything but welcomed. I would personally highly recommend travelling to Cairo for a holiday. The Emo Tours Egypt did a wonderful job of tailoring my full day tour.

EXCELLENT TOUR WITH THIRD GENERATION tour guide Hala. Very knowledgeable, high energy, friendly, knows how to schedule day and access to avoid lines and crowds. Female. Prompt hotel pickup and return. Cairo can be overwhelming, Emo Tours and Hala and her driver make it comfortable. Go!”

Our guide was Mohammad who was in the hotel lobby on time and was an excellent, very knowledgeable, pleasant person . Special precaution when you have lunch in the open places which are very busy with tourists. No assurance on food safety. Both me and my daughter got a severe diarrhea possibly after having lunch at these places. Otherwise the tour was excellent.”

This tour was very educational. Our tour guide Hala (I think) was very knowledgeable about the history of the different places we visited. The driver was really nice too. Lunch (except drinks) was included and very delicious. Hala even bought us snacks and bottled water. The camel ride was not included which cost us 350 Egyptian pounds each.”

The full-day tour visiting the pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, Memphis and Saqara was a wonderful experience. Our guide Ahmed Hamed was really nice and kind to us, he really cared about us enjoying the tour and our stay in Egypt. He is very knowledgeable and experienced and explained key points of each site and history helping us appreciate what we were seeing and make the most out of our experience. The itinerary was on point with some visits to some shops, however, this is totally up to us; you are not forced to buy anything and this part could be skipped altogether. The car ride was smooth (considering the crazy traffic in Cairo) in a modern car with AC all the time; lunch at the local restaurant was delicious. This tour is totally worth the money.”
