This was the first of three day tours that my husband and I took with Emo Tours through Viator and we were very pleased with the outcome. Tito was our guide and he did a phenomenal job with explaining everything and giving us lots of history! Not so good helping out with haggling at the market place, but it was a great day overall. He was a veritable font of knowledge! Answering all our questions and if he didn't know an an answer was honest enough to say so as opposed to making something up. He was easy going and let us go at our pace. Our driver was Saeed, and he was amazing! Cairo drivers are nuts and Saeed navigated the traffic expertly! Got us to all our locations safely! I would definitely recommend Emo Tours and Tito and Saeed in particular.
This was a truly amazing tour. The guide picked us on time from our hotel then straight to see the Pyramides. It was breathtaking, TRUELY AMAZING SITE. The guide took us around the existing Pyramid sites and one of the panoramic sites. The highlight of the trip was the Camel ride. It was the best ride ever. After seeing the Great Sphinx we went to the museum. Overall the guide's subject knowledge was excellent and well explained. Truly amazing day, well deserve a pat on the shoulder to the driver, he was great.
The tour guide was amazing, kind and very helpful. The day was full of surprises and for me, it was one of the great memorable day out.
The guide was absolutely horrible. His name was Ahmed or something that sounds like this. He is from Cairo. First of all he had a terrible accent and it was hard to understand him. After some time we got used to his accent. But he does not know how and when to shut up. He kept repeating the same thing over and over again. He must have said his name at least 10 times within the first hour. He has a very high opinion of himself and expects everyone to adore him.
My wife and I could not stand the guy after couple of hours. We both got a headache just listening to this guy. We cut our tour short and went on our own way by sending him off.
I believe this tour company is new. Do not use them.
Marwan was our guide in Cairo and throughout the day he shared his expert knowledge of Egyptian history. Everywhere we went or even drove through he shared his fascinating information about the area. We also felt very safe with our careful and attentive driver. I cannot say enough about Marwan and the entire experience from pyramids and Egyptian museum to the traditional Egyptian lunch. Thank you for everything!
I had an AMAZING trip!!! Samar was so kind and knowledgeable. She made us feel like we were a part of her family. I learned so much about the culture and their practices. We rode camels, went to the pyramids, visited the bazar, ate great food, and was submerged in the culture. Samar took AMAZING care of us!!!
From the minute our very knowledgeable and articulate guide Tito and excellent driver, Salach picked us up at our hotel we felt secure that we were in good hands. We were given a very interesting in depth briefing of what to expect on the tour with a wealth of historical background. We learned about the context of the antiquities that we were going to see which really made the experience come alive. The pyramids and the Cairo Museum were fabulous. Tito our guide was wonderful and very easy to be with. Ask for him as he will make the tour very special for you. Three cheers for the driver, Salach, who maneuvered through crazy Cairo traffic. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. It was great and well worth the cost.
We had an amazing time in Cairo with Tito as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgable and enjoyed sharing this knowledge with us. He obviously had a passion for his job. He was very considerate to our elderly mother, making sure was coping with the terrain. Thank you for a great tour Tito.
