    The service is normal, it is no bad but is also no the best. You can do fun in the tour. The guys are friendly but they want to sell you everything from their friends in the shops. They spoke almost all the time in Arabic, which is totally fine but sometimes you have the sensation that they speak about you. In the end was a great day with them but they practically force you to write a good and excellent comment in TripAdvisor in front of them.

    Our guide was sayed mohamud. From the beginning he told we can take it relaxed tour no hurry. But he began journey on unimportant places and spent much time on memphis. But giza pyramids were last to visit and it was hot like hell bcoz it was late. We shud have began tour from pyramids. He was rushing ys from pyramids only to taje us to his friends shops.. we could have taken good look. He fidnt even let us go near sphinx or pyramids and took all crappy photos and snapped at us to hurry. Driver was good though

    Sayed Mahmoud was and excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable & Muhammad the driver were excellent and a safe driver.

    Our skilled driver and knowledgeable guide Mahmoud made my first impression of Cairo exciting. Both driver and guide were so hospitable, generous and good people. Full of energy they showed us every pyramid. locations I have never heard of outside of Cairo. Quiet locations full of history and beauty. Mahmoud really enjoyed teaching us about ancient Egypt and we enjoyed having him. However, they were both hesitant to take us to Khan el Khalili Bazaar. Their mood changed drastically, I assumed they were worried about time. They still took us to the Bazaar and we got a glimpse of it. Unfortunately didn't have time to really enjoy it. Maybe if we didn't agree to see the cartouche and papyrus places we would have more time. We appreciate that they still followed our wishes and got us back to the airport in good time. Without them, Cairo was not fun. When we returned to Cairo another day it was disappointing. This is how I know the tour guide and driver really made our day! I'll defo recommend Emo Tours for Cairo yes! I felt very secure with them and we listened to really nice tunes. They were very patient with me getting my photography work done too. This is a tour I would love to do again :))

    We had so much fun! Mahmoud Anwar was our guide and we couldn't imagine a better one! Totally recommended to everyone who visits Cairo. Thank u for the amazing time and for making our last day in Egypt special.

    Wow, what a tour. From my pick-up at the airport I was treated like royalty. My driver Ashraf was just amazing, shoo he made sure that I had water and not just water it needed to be cold and opened the door for me at every stop, I felt so embarrassed but soon realised what a gentleman he was and just wanted to do it. Then there was my guide, Assam you are just so knowledgeable in the history of Egypt. I learned so much, you took the time to educate me but also patient knowing that I was tired. You ensured that we got to all the places but most importantly you have a terrific photographer, you captured the moments for me perfectly and for that I am eternally grateful. The two of you Ashraf and Assam please never change, this tour was everything I had hoped for and so much more because of you. I felt safe, traffic in Egypt is horrific but that hooter worked perfectly. I will strongly recommend this tour if you have a long layover in Egypt, you get to see and experience so many things and the tour operator is simply awesome.

Perfect host and an excellent person. Recommendations Go for it.

    Mohamed Hamed was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide.! He kept us safe (from aggressive vendors 😂). We were very tired from our travels and he adapted to our pace easily. We enjoyed our day very much!

    Excellent tour guide and driver! Our guide, Abdul, did a great job of explaining all of the sites, and he was very patient and supportive of our requests. The driver also did a good job.
