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.”

This tour would have been wonderful based on the sites seen alone. it was made exponentially better by our wonderful tour guide and driver, Sayid navigated the Cairo traffic with ease. Tonsi was so engaging, knowledgeable and caring. The Giza pyramids are truly a beautiful sight to behold and Tonsi made sure we got great photos to remember our visit. He went above and beyond, gifting us with knowledge about not only the Pyramids and why they exist but how to navigate Egyptian culture. He even saved us some wasted pounds by telling us not to pay for wasteful add-ons. My brother really enjoyed the visit to the Step Pyramids in Sakkara, he actually got to go inside and see a tomb. I thought the whole trip was amazing but really enjoyed my time in the open air museum of Memphis. The lunch provide was actually pretty good and I enjoyed the added bonus of enjoying the meal with our guide and driver. Tonsi made sure we never felt rush and that we could do as little or as much as we wanted. My brother and I really enjoyed our added trip to the Papyrus institute, the guide was from Aswan and she was so amazing, beautiful and funny. She gave us plenty of time to make purchases unencumbered.”

This tour was the highlight of my trip. Our guide Mahmoud was so knowledgeable and very friendly. Our driver Honey expertly navigated the crazy Cairo traffic and always got out to open the door as soon as he sat us walking toward the car. These two provided do much knowledge about the ruins but also about Cairo as a whole. It felt like we were with two friends who just happened to know everything about the Pyramids and all of Cairo history. I would recommend this tour hands down and if you are lucky to get Mahmoud and Honey you are sure to have a wonderful time!”

We had a Marvelous time on this full day tour!! Our tour guide was Osama and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time touring the Pyramids, Memphis and Sakkara. Osama arrived early at our hotel ready to pick us up, It was an air conditioned van which was great since the weather got up to 110 degrees F. They brought us to a couple of different shops in between Pyramids to give us the option to buy souvenirs, which was great because it allowed us to avoid being harassed by all the panhandlers on the street. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone.”

I had an excellent time in Egypt, this being the highlight of my trip. I appreciate there are good guides out there, but no one can be better than Olfat, FULL STOP. She is full of life, passionate about her job and has thorough knowledge about the history of Egypt.
BTW she takes amazing photos, I had no idea my simple phone could take such amazing photos.
Also, I had to mention this, our driver Abdullah Gomma was a great driver, I have been behind the wheel for donkey's years so I know a good driver straight away. In Egypt driving is a difficult task, with every other taxi driver swearing and cursing at other drivers, applying harsh breaking/horn all the time, however with Abdullah it was a smooth journey. Having a good driver and a good guide are very important for a trip, and by God's grace I had both.
Egypt is a great country, with warm people and lot to see. The food is great too and it is safe. Please visit Egypt before you kick th e bucket.”

Highlight of the trip. Had a full day of activities, the tour guide was extremely helpful in understanding our needs and ensuring 1 we were safe, 2 We were informed of each facility before reaching it. 3 We were afforded an appropriate time to enjoy the sites, take pictures, etc.
His knowledge of each area was comforting and his willingness to discuss any issues relating to Egypt or Cairo was also helpful.”
