Excellent day tour, be sure to request Ahmed Elsayed as your guide!!
Apr 2021
Handsdown the highlight of our tours during our honeymoon in Egypt! All HUGE thanks to our tour guide Ahmed Elsayed who was phenomenal - he was so knowledgeable about each site, didn't rush us at all, and took great photos of us throughout without us even having to ask. We had such a wonderful experience,  truly could not have asked for a better guide. We started at Saqqara Temple & grounds, and then headed to Memphis to the Open-Air Museum. Then we stopped for lunch at El Dar Darak Grill & Seafood, which was a delicious spread, and the restaurant staff was so hospitable and nice. We then continued on to the Great Pyramids of Giza & Sphinx, where Ahmed got us the best camel ride to see the pyramids. Incredible views, a must do & must see - request camels Charlie Brown & Michael Jackson, such friendly creatures. Our driver for the day tour Abraham was great as well, safely maneuvering us through the hectic streets of Cairo. Highly recommend Emo Tours for this day tour in Cairo, and please please request Ahmed Elsayed and driver Abraham, so we'll worth it. Bonus, Ahmed is an excellent photographer and will make sure you get photos of all the great spots!

Excellent tour with Guide Mamdouh Kamal and driver Ihabe Boshra. We wanted to secure a nice tour without rushing while having to catch a plane to Aswan after 18.00. This was perfectly organised with very interesting explanations from Mamdouh and perfect timing. Also very flexible to add elements to the trip ( like late lunch not initially selected by us.. ) and many nice attentions with always intention to make a great day for us. Full success. Warm thanks to Mamdouh and Ihabe!

Tonsi Tonsi was a fantastic guide! The car was nice and he told me the history and helped me navigate Cairo. Communicated well on WhatsApp, great English, and added/skipped portions as I liked. Lunch was great, and the papyrus shop was really cool, too! Highly recumbent to message them and book online!

Tonsi, The Man!
Jan 2021 • Family
Our tour could not have been better, as our guide, Tonsi, was the most genuine, fun and informative person I have ever come across! He could answer every single question thrown his way, and was very passionate about his country and what it has to offer - and it was really evident.
Tonsi is probably the best tour guide in Egypt in my opinion, and I have only great things to say about him.
Our tour ran smoothly, we enjoyed his company and overall he gave us the best experience we could've asked for. It was such a pleasure meeting someone like Tonsi, and I'm sure he will only do greater things in the future!

Best tour in Egypt
Jan 2021 • Couples
Tonsi can answer any single question you have about ancient Egypt or the sites we saw! This tour was super fun, informative, and incredible. This was a once in a lifetime experience and we couldn't have picked a better company or tour guide. Tonsi was very personable, spoke English excellently, and made the tour so incredibly fun! He let us dictate how long we stayed at each site and took as many pictures as we asked him to. He did a fantastic job and I recommend this tour to anybody looking to see these sites in Egypt!

Great trip made even better with amazing guide
Osama, our amazing guide who I will talk more about in a minute, and our driver was at our Airbnb promptly at 8 to pick us up and his energy was out of this world from his introduction. I think he was more excited about the day than we were and his excitement was contagious.

Our first stop was the pyramids and again, it was an amazing site made even more so by Osama who was not only a world class photographer who was so excited to take tons of great pictures everywhere we went. Osama was also very knowledgeable and gave very interesting "demonstrations" about all sites we went to. We paid a little extra to go into the smaller tomb and to have a camel ride and they were both very good experiences.

Leaving the pyramids we stopped by a papyrus and painting shop that was very nice and then an oil/perfume shop that was also worthwile for us. We then made our way to Sakkara, very relaxing. And a short trip to Memphis before heading for a nice meal.

Overall, this was an amazing intro to Egypt, but I really can't say enough about Osama whose positivity and excitement made every stop even better. I can't recommend it enough.
