Get a chance to snap unforgettable photos of the famous seated lion, whose head resembles the ancient King Chephren. After a savory lunch at an authentic local restaurant, visit the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, which marked a new style of monument. Your tour concludes back at your hotel.

We booked this tour very last minute and it worked out perfectly. We were picked up the next morning and spent the day learning about the ancient Egyptian highlights near Giza and Cairo with Tonsi. He’s a wonderful guide - so knowledgeable and nice. To top it off, the lunch was delicious! Highly recommend.

Thank you Tonsi and Hamdi, this was an awesome trip!
I have to say that Tonsi and Hamdi did an amazing job today with me. They were on time and the best part was that I was the only guest so it ended being a private tour. Tonsi really knows about the history of Egypt and I appreciate that he truly seems to enjoy his work something that most people do not seem to enjoy but he truly does. I was able to see how Egyptians live on a daily basis and lunch was included and food was great. I appreciate that Tonsi remained near my side at all times as there are many people trying to sell you things and hassle you. He was able to send them off and that made my experience even better because I focused on Egypt and not on people bothering me all the time. Hamdi is an amazing driver that knows well the city and finds shortcuts to get to the location quicker. Both guys made an awesome team and they are highly recommended by me 10/10. You will not regret doing your next tour with them so book them and they will take care of you as they took care of me.

Safe and pleasant tour of Giza, Saqqara and Memphis.
Notwithstanding the blazing heat, it was an educational and enjoyable tour, thanks to Mo Salah, my most knowledgable guide. He knows all the hidden spots and showed me many interesting places. Equally impressive was his deep knowledge of ancient Egypt and this makes the ride in the car interesting. Mo Salah and the driver were both very polite and attentive to me, not an easy task under the hot summer heat. They were also punctual and the driving was safe. Most happy with the service and tour. Thank you.

Enjoyable and informative tour to some of the most important places in the history of humankind
Jul 2021
Great day tour with the guide Essam and the driver Mohammed from Emo Tours. Firstly, the tour was booked last minute, just a couple of days before the date - yet everything was organised quickly and efficiently, and proceeded very smoothly. I am very grateful to Essam for a providing me so much interesting information on all the sites, and answering my numerous questions. I have always been interested in the history of the ancient world, and even taken a few academic courses related to it - yet I learnt so much during the tour. I especially enjoyed my visit to Saqqara, which is the place I had wanted to see for a long time. Although less famous than the iconic Gaza pyramids, it is nevertheless a very important place in the history of Egypt, and in the modern day Egyptology. I plan to come there as soon as I can, for a more detailed exploration.
I will highly recommend Emo Tours to anyone wishing to explore some of the greatest archaeological monuments of Egypt and extent their knowledge and understanding of this fascinating country.

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!

At our full service
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!

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!
