Great tour, well worth it. Our guide Tonsi was knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining some of the history behind pyramids and the dynasties / kingdoms as well as answering questions of Cairo and the surrounding area. He was very helpful navigating through the sites as well as helping us with setting up a driver for another day of sightseeing.

Rami was a knowledgeable person and a well-informed guide about Egyptian history and the former kingdoms.
Also, his German was very good. Unfortunately, he wasn't really enthusiastic about the topic and it seemed more that he wasn't enjoying giving the tour.
The driver was nice and friendly and when you take the Cairo traffic into consideration really on the defense side.

We enjoyed our tour except that we would loved to have a guide who is more enthusiastic about the topic.
Additionally, we were also confused that we were taken into an Essential oil and papyrus shop. No idea if it belongs to the tour but you don't have to buy anything and can just say friendliy no.

We had a great day visiting all the sites including the pyramids. Our guide Ahmed and driver Mourad were exceptional. Mourad was a very safe driver and the car ride was very comfortable. Ahmed was very knowledgable, flexible and accommodating. They went out of their way to ensure we had a smooth day. As females travelling on our own we felt very safe throughout the day. Food was also great.
I would highly recommend this tour especially if visiting the pyramids.

Ayam was an exceptional tour guide! As soon as we got in the car she explained her credentials and make us feel comfortable asking any and all questions throughout the day about ancient Egypt. The driver would always stop and pick us up at locations convenient to us. The food at the restaurant was incredible!

Very professional service. Tonsi (tour guide) and Ahmed (driver) picked us up on time from our hotel with a nice car with amenities. We started the tour in the correct direction from old to new (saqqara, menphis, great pyramids). They were very keen to make our experience as good as possible. They handled everything and they helped me tipping when I didn’t have small change. They always asked us before, if we want to additional activities, as camel ridding or papyrus, in a very polite and trustworthy way. I truly recommend this private tour with Tonsi and Ahmed.

Wonderful day - this is only way you should see the great sights around Cairo. Tonsi was an excellent guide never leaving me in doubt of my journey and sharing his extensive knowledge of Egyptian History. Ahmed was our driver and I never had to walk more than a few steps and the car was right there! Excellent job, from absolute gentlemen and professionals !

OMG! This was the best experience my sister and I could have ever imagined. All I can say is go visit Egypt > Cairo and ask for “Mazen Maher Sammy” and be open-minded for a wonderful experience!!! Our driver “Bassam Elkhodary” was also awesome and gave us water and had little snacks for us along the way. Now back to Mazen! He is the most friendly & kind tour guide I’ve ever met and quite popular I’d say (because the locals know him which is a plus). We had no worries about security because he was very knowledgeable about the tour and was patient to let us explore all the sites. If you’re traveling solo, as a couple or a group, Emo Tours is your answer.
Thank you so much Mazen for an amazing customer service! I will be visiting again for sure with my family.

From start to finish Osama and Ahmed arrived on time, greeted us wonderfully and welcomed us with open arms. Osama was extremely knowledgeable about the history and explained everything to us in an interesting way.

Ahmed the driver almost made us feel safe and never kept us waiting. He was extremely polite.

We had a great day trip to the Pyramids and even went into the Pyramid of Dashur. It was exciting.

Thank you so much Osama and Ahmed for the amazing experience!!

I will definitely recommend the tour and Osama as your guide. ❤️❤️❤️
