This was an incredible tour, we had the best guide Samra who was fantastic to travel with. She provided immense knowledge on everything Egyptian and answered all our questions as well helped fend off unwanted 'souvenir' vendors. Prompt pickup at our hotel, were taken to a great local place where we had an outstanding lunch and took care of all our needs at each site. This is by far one of the best experiences we have had while abroad. Highly recommend everyone doing this tour, it is a must do. Ask for Samra who speaks Arabic, English, French, Spanish and learning Chinese! We could not have had a better experience, a private tour is the way to go as you can dictate the schedule and time taken at each site as well as navigate these attractions with much more ease than the big tour groups.
Well done EMO tours!
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. I had a great time, and Mahmoud Hoka was the best guide ever. He was super knowledgable, and he was very in tune with exactly what interested me. As soon as he realized I enjoyed photography, he showed me all the best spots to get a good shot, and took me to places he thought I'd enjoy based on the photos I was taking. He also took tons of photos for me, which was great since I was traveling alone. He's an amazing photographer, too. The thing that impressed me most was how courteous and kind he was to every single person we encountered. No wonder he seemed to have friends everywhere we went. Other highlights: pickup from my apartment right on time, a snack, a trip entirely tailored to my tastes, great sights. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Noi abbiamo avuto la fortuna di trascorrere un giorno bellissimo con la nostra guida Omar e il driver Maher . Non posso che consigliare questa agenzia e in particolare la nostra guida Omar che è stato molto professionale , esperto e gentile.
Omar e Maher ci sono venuti a prendere alle 8.00 del mattino come precedentemente riconfermato il giorno prima a Emo Tours .
La macchina era molto pulita e il driver Maher una persona matura e squisita ci ha accompagnato e rimasto ad aspettare per tutta la durata del tour . Ci siamo sentite molto a nostro agio in quanto è molto prudente e guida molto bene.
Tengo a precisare che Omar è stato molto onesto e non è per niente il tipo di guida che porta solo dove gli conviene .
Abbiamo visitato la piramide a gradoni di Sakkara , Menfi ed infine le piramidi a Giza e devo dire che abbiamo passato una giornata fantastica .
Consiglio di visitare il Cairo e se con Emo Tours sarà ancora più bello!
the Agency EMO was BRILLIANT!
We originally booked only a full day tour - but ended up doing so many other tours with them since they were really good completely professional - hoisting done by the guides was top notch !
Shimaa was PERFECT on our Day Tour of Luxor - She was super knowledgable, respectful of the limited time we had to see as much as possible. She even had her own Birthday that day - but took us around the city to see all the sights.. Cared for us like her children hahahah and not once did she interrupt anything she was doing for us to look after herself. Unbelievably fantastic guide and fully recommended. she was just the best! so trustworthy and capable - we felt completely at ease in a strange city - but under her care!
The next two days we were with Heba in Cairo and she was equally brilliant. Sweet, intelligent, articulate and very passionate about her position and the responsibility she had to get things right. She gave in and let us eat 'local' hahahaha on the 2nd day instead of the prepared restaurant .. she even bought us a flower each from a street vendor on the last day to say a personal 'thank you. Small gesture but it meant miles!
EMO tours were really fantastic ! super easy to arrange with, handle payment with and just relax and enjoy since they took the heat off and made everything happen ! no request was too big or too small ... and I would NOT hesitate to steer others in their direction - let them arrange it all - they were the BEST!
thank you thank you thank you! Egypt ticked off the bucket list!
The tour was great. I was with my 5 year old daughter and wasnt sure if everything will work out well, but my tour guide Ola made me really memorable. She had very good knowledge of all monuments and explained in the details that made things interesting for a 5 year old.
She was always willing to carry her as well when she got tired with all the walk around Pyramids.Ola also understood me being a vegetarian and took me to restaurants that had variety of veg choices including kosher meals
A great experience, took almost 8 hours , and really worth it.
This was without doubt the highlight of my trip to Egypt and Cairo. My guide Sahl was the best, he made sure we were completely comfortable with everything right from the point of pick up until drop off at the end of the day. The great pyramids were the highlight, so was visiting the earliest pyramids as well as the brilliant lunch. We requested for a later lunch so that we could have it while watching the sun set over the pyramids- a rare scene indeed. One of the most unforgettable days in my life. The magic of the pyramids still has an effect on me.
