By far the best tour i had in EGYPT. Amr was awesome and managed to give me an unforgettable experience. We did everything on my own pace and gave me all the details i wanted and answered all of my questions. Cairo is a very diverse and unique city and only with the right guide can be fully enjoyed. Please make sure you request Amr for this tour as he will make sure you get the maximum of your time.

I also had my own personal driver and was always prompt and ready for the next pickup or drop-off.

To sum up this has been an excellent experience and i would definitely recommend EMO tours and Amr more specifically for anything related to EGYPT.

Keep up the good work and thank you for creating an unforgettable experience for me

Our tour guide was Ola, and she was one of the best tour guides I've come across. I took other tour guides in Egypt, and she by far excelled in her customer service, thoughtfulness, and care to make sure we had a fun and enjoyable experience. We learned a lot about Islamic history, had ample time to enjoy each of the places, was helpful in taking pictures of us without us needing to ask her, and knew alot about the diverse religions that exist in the country. As practicing muslims and as a first time tourist in Egypt, she gave us a very customized and authentic experience. I would highly recommend her and this tour group.

Me and my parents had a great time touring old Cairo. Just walking through old Cairo wouldn't have made any sense without a guide, since you would not be provided with any information. Our Guide Mahmoud el Wakeen was very well educated and he explained everything in detail. He was very concerned about our well being and he made sure to give us some time to make wonderful pictures!!!
Thank you Mahmoud!!!

Our guide was very informative. We were not rushed and took our time to visit each of the stops with a very in depth explanation of what we were seeing. The lunch was not that exciting, but it was nice to have something to eat and drink after a long day of touring and walking.

Great experience visiting the historic mosques and churches of Cairo. We both enjoyed looking at the old architecture and Sayed our guide was so knowledgeable and informed us of the history of all the places we visited. Great lunch with some traditional Egyptian food. Great driving from Adel.

Our guide Sayed Mahmoud was excellent - 5 stars to him. He did not try to sell stuff for commission which was a nice change from all other tours we did.

He took us to all historical places and provided us with background, and even chose the picture spots for us.

Be prepared for hot weather- comfortable shoes, water, hat and comfortable clothing.

I had a great tour with Mahmoud Anwa my guide he helped make it extra special with his knowledge and humour. We even played dominoes and had coffees. The tour covered all the main sights which you wouldn't find on your own. The lunch was good and this is a cheaper way to cover Cairo than on your own with a guide at each place as I found out in a previous trip. Mohamed Saed our driver was great fun too. I fully recommend this tour and these two guides.

Mo Salah is an excellent guide who explained the history of Coptic and Islamic Cairo and gave background of it's relations to the Roman Empire and Europe. He did not take us to any places that tried to sell us stuff and he knew all the tricks of the trade to not pay extra fees in the tourist areas. Mo Salah gets 5 of 5 stars.

Our visit to Islamic Cairo, the Citadel, and the Coptic area, was very informative and appreciated. We learned details of the Islamic religion and culture that gave us more understanding. The Coptic history was very new to us. Our guide’s knowledge was extensive. We also visited an original Jewish synagogue. The day was valuable to our world view.

The tour guide, Adel, is knowledgeable, a pleasant and good human being. I enjoyed visiting the Coptic and Islamic Cairo and to know of the relevant history.
