It was a magnificent trip to Cairo during 9-11th October 2012 part of which I have described elsewhere on Trip Advisor. I cannot have been the only trip advisor fan to Cairo who was looking for a day tour, away from the ubiquitous coach parties, a personal touch, a hint at the real Cairo, a great guide, with a driver, who was passionate about what I wanted but who also wanted to share his passion for his City.
A great friend in Cairo made a phonecall and up stepped Ayman Ahmed from Emo Tours.
It will surprise you that the first really good impression Ayman gave was when we had arrived in the Hotel Victoria reception at our agreed time of 9am to be advised by the Hotel Manager that Ayman had phoned, was stuck in traffic and running 10 minutes late and that he was very apologetic. I really appreciated that.
It was very important to Ayman that we got everything we wanted out of our day, so we discussed 'in an ideal world' what we could see.
And that is pretty much the order of what we did from 9.10am to 6pm when we were dropped back at our hotel. We were transported to the Pyramids in no time with Ayman giving a running commentary of what we may see, which pyramids might be open and if there was anything else me might want to do. After a few hours at our pace, we moved back into Cairo to visit a number of magnificent Mosques. We later moved on to the main Coptic Church and later went around the Souks.
So why recommend Emo Tours and why Ayman? Of course the sites and sights blow you away. To be face to face with things you only see in pictures in books is amazing. Ayman took it to a different level by giving a safe, trusted, value added service by being a personal and highly professional guide with a good air-con car with a great driver, He is also someone who listens to what you want, offers solutions and allows plenty of time to let you do it.
I have no hesitation in recommending Emo Tours. In fact when we return to Egypt, as we surely will, Ayman will be top of our list to make our next visit a great visit.
