A wonderful experience

This tour exceeded our expectations by far. Our Guide, Mohamed and our driver Waheed were incredible. They picked us up very punctually to start the tour and took us to all the places in a very comfortable and air-conditioned car (something important and worth appreciating on hot days in Cairo). Mohamed knows a lot, his Spanish is excellent and he also took the time to explain everything to us in detail, he was always attentive to answering our questions and gave us time to enjoy each place and take photos. he is really very patient. Despite the chaos that exists on the streets of Cairo and how crazy their drivers are, Waheed always made us feel safe and confident that we would reach our destinations. He is the best driver in all of Cairo and very friendly, his English is perfect and he was all the time waiting to drop us off and pick us up at each part of the tour so that we avoided the sun and did not have to walk so much. They are an excellent duo! very friendly people who made us feel comfortable and from whom we learned a lot. if you take this tour, ask for Mohamed and Waheed, they are the best persons to make you live an unforgettable experience in Egypt!

Emo tours owns and operates every place you stop at! Do not stop at any of the oil/jewellery/papyrus shops!

Here's the thing - it's difficult to review this as anything less than a great experience, because it truly was good. Ahmed was our tour guide and he was great - he was knowledgeable and efficient, he took us through the tour exactly as we wanted and tried to add more experiences for us on top of that. Ahmed (another guy) was our driver and a true gentleman, and managed to really add to our day without speaking much English at all. However, Ahmed the tour guide had us stop at the usual oil shop and jewellery shop that you hear all about when you're touring Egypt, but unfortunately for us it was our first day and we were none the wiser and so we bought some things. This would sting less had Ahmed not specifically told us various lies about how he wanted to help us get the best prices etc - in one shop, as we attempted to haggle with the shopkeeper, he actually told us to stop haggling (we know now that he was getting commission from these sales!). We attempted to contact Emo Tours about the situation but needless to say, were ignored, so we had to move on and bear the loss! But if you do the tour - and the tour is great! - make sure to firmly refuse any side visits to any shops, they are quite literally out to get you!

The guide was not good. He didn’t even tell us that we could go inside the Saqdara pyramids. He also was in a hurry to finish and let us go. I wish I could get my money back.

Best tour guide and tour of Giza pyramids.
Krishna_A

Mahmoud was exceptional. He knew everyone local and was known to be the best guide around. We traveled to each spot, where he spent ample time in each place to help us understand the historical importance of each place and explained the arts and culture. He was jovial and energetic, even when the weather turned hot in the afternoon. Ahmed the driver was also super friendly and helpful. My brother and I felt like we truly enjoyed the trip to Cairo and its culture and cuisine from this tiny one day trip.

Afifi was an amazing guide and Mohammed was an excellent driver! We had such a great day. This tour had everything we wanted when it came to pyramids. Afifi took tons of great pictures for us and told us what to expect every step of the way.

We had a great day at the Giza pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis and Saqqara. We were picked up on time at our hotel by Tolba who was friendly and drove well. Our tour guide Mahmoud El-Wakeel was polite and provided a comprehensive history of the sites we visited. He also gave us ample time to take pictures at the different locations, and advised on how we could avoid vendors. The lunch at the restaurant was wonderful. The tour was a little rushed due to the shorter opening times during Eid, but overall we had a great day and would recommend to others.

SOME GOOD, SOME NOT SO GOOD EXPERIENCE
Harihar_H
, May 2022
The tour began with a confusion about the starting time! There were 2 mails informing two different timings of pick up, one hour apart. The tour guide and the driver waited patiently. The sites covered were good. The tour was supposed to be for 9 hours which became 6 hours in the end (we understand it was Ramadaan time). Once-in-a-life-time visit to one of the wonders of the world should not be completed in a hurry. The local guide (Mr Khalid) was good in providing information but was in a hurry to finish the tour before 2:30 pm (and he did eventually) even though the tour was supposed to be till 5 pm. Even though we had booked the package with lunch, we could not have lunch as one of the members was not feeling well. We bought lunch at our expenses at the end of the tour with much difficulty with the bus driver who was refusing to wait for even 10-15 min while the lunch was being packed leaving us with a bad feeling. We represented it to the local tour operator and Viator asking for refund of lunch money which was rejected in the end!!!! Not good for a reputed company!!!

The sights of Egypt are amazing so no problem there. Our guide was ok, nothing more. The drop offs at the oils and papyrus franchises should be clearly stated in the tour description and it creates a pressure to buy. We were not really hungry for our included lunch (even at 3:30pm) and only really wanted a cold drink. Sat down and told drinks not included 🤦 no biggy the food was actually pretty good but don’t advertise drinks included if they are not.

Good trip with bad guide
PaolaAndrea_M

The contents of the tour are amazing. It's the pyramids, there is not a lot to add. The driver was good, the tour was well thought bout, the lunch was good. The guide was really hard to understand and follow. He did an effort and really tried his best to explain but we had a really hard time relating and following him. There were some facts in between that were interesting but overall I am afraid I can not recommend him.

Superb experience with fantastic Ola ( tour guide) and Momen (driver)
Monika_D
, May 2022
My husband and I took one day trip to Cairo to see the pyramids. We flew in from Sharm in early hours. We were picked up at the airport by our lovely guide Ola in a private taxi with a driver Momen. Ola was the best, super knowledgeable and passionate about the Egypt and it’s history. She gave us an overview of the trip and we learnt a lot about places we were about to see! She took us into most iconic places and gave us superb information! We had time to see, take pictures and listen to the history without any hustle. Momen was the best driver also, always waiting in the perfect spot for us! We had many toilet breaks and nothing was of a trouble. The whole experience was superb! I would recommend this trip, this company and most of all Ola and Momen as they were the best!

This was an excellent trip. Khalid our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. We were picked up in a nice car and privately driven to all the sites. The lunch provided was a great buffet, lots of options and very tasty. I would recommend this trip as an easy way to see the best sites in Cairo in a day.

It's one thing to do a full day tour, it is another thing to have a guide who was not only extremely knowledgeable, but passionate about ancient Egypt. Extremely friendly and funny who took us to the not only the main tourist attractions, but also interesting shops such as the perfume shops, papyrus museum and Egyptian cotton shops. Absolutely sublime from start to finish. 10/10
