        Amazing Nile cruise
        1st trip to Cairo & the 1st thing we did was the Nile dinner cruise. It is not the fanciest but the vibe is top notch & for a buffet the food was great. Better than some over priced fancy restaurant. The dancers were great especially the gentleman spinning the garbs & the light show. Definitely want to come back with family.

        Impressive show of whirling dervishes
        We have been several times at this show, and it is really impressive. The show takes place in an open inner courtyard of the mosque, and it starts with the dervishes introducing their instruments, then they start dancing and whirling, rotating their colourful skirts in the air with an impressive art and skill. The show lasts one hour and a half, and the price is very low (it used to be for free many years ago). I highly recommend it.

        Great Trip Great Guide Highly Recommended
        We had a great trip with Emo Tours where a guide and a driver picked us from our hotel to the Grand Egyptian Museum. The Museum's not fully ready yet, however it was very big and architecture seems very advanced and modern. The 3D Tutankhamun's screen show is amazing. Some good artifact pieces are there. The tour guide is very friendly, helpful, passionate and good at explaining things about the Grand Egyptian Museum and Egyptian history. He also was very open minded, willing to discuss things and good at listening about Egyptian history beyond the norm.

        Amazing experience.
        We had the best time in this cruise. It was the perfect way to end a night in Cairo. The view was nice, the food was amazing, and the performances really left us speechless. 10/10 would recommend. If you ever go to Egypt, definitely consider taking this beautiful ride.

        Highly recommend, an unforgettable trip
        This trip is amazing and well worth it. Picked up promptly by driver Shadi. Drove safely and he was courteous and friendly. Our guide Hamdi was knowledgeable, warm, friendly and courteous too. Gave us lots of history and answered all our questions. Never felt rushed. Took lots of pictures in right places/ angles. Very well organised. We felt safe with them. Price included a ticket to go inside and climb the narrow shaft up , nearly to the top of the Great Pyramid. Enjoyed the prepaid in ticket half hour camel ride with more photo opportunities and panoramic view of all 9. Taken to the Sphinx and got more history and fancy pose / plain photo opportunities . Gave option to go to shops but we declined and he wasn’t pushy. Lunch was at a local restaurant and tasty with a very good spread of Cairo dishes. Drinks chargeable. Transfer back to hotel arriving 1.30. All in all, a memorable day which we shall never forget. Highly recommend this tour and the driver and tour guide we were given. Thank you to them and the tour operator.

        Shuttle from hotels to Luxor airport by Emo Tours
        booked Emo Tours private departure transfer from hotel to the luxor airport, early morning 6:45 am, with flat rare 15 usd. The drive arrive at the hotel at least 15 minutes early and wait for me patiently. The ride took 15 minutes from the Luxor Hilton to the airport and it was very smooth. You might find cheaper taxi rate but Emo tours prearranged shuttle provide professional service and very reliable. Btw the Luxor airport is very small and nothing to do there so my suggestion as it is good to arrive 1-1.5 hours early than schedule departure time.

        Enjoyable overall
        The nile dinner cruise was quite good, although not so much the dinner as it was just a simple buffet with limited options. The bellydancer was nice but the Tanourah dancer was amazing. The music is quite loud and suits people with a taste in Arabic music. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and our guide Tarek was helpful. Overall it isn't a luxury trip and shouldn't be seen as such but it was still fun.

        Great guided tour of Abu Simbel
        I took a private, guided tour from Aswan to Abu Simbel. My guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and everything was on time and well organised. I liked having the option to choose the departure time. We left Aswan at 7am and when we arrived, I almost had the site to myself which was amazing and a great experience to explore.

      This tour was recommended to us by our tour guide Hakiem who took us on another really great tour with this same company .This one did not disappoint! The dinner started with a salad buffet followed by main course. I had veal which was delicious. My husband enjoyed the chicken. There were multiple dessert options also. The musicians were excellent played a mix of top 40 international. The performers engaged with the audience and put on a great show. The cruise itself was pleasant. Great photo opportunities. You will enjoy this one for sure.

      Overall good experience, the entertainment was amazing and the food was good.

      We had a fun night, the only downside was that we didn't actually set off in time to see sunset.

      Aya was our host and was great.

      Would recommend this trip to others.

      The cruise was wonderful, the Nile at night with all the lights was beautiful. You can get a beer, go up top and watch the ride. Or go down below to watch the show. Highly recommend for a first time to Egypt. Book with Esham.

      Nice big boat
      Lovely food and view
      Nice show both belly dance and darvish
      The only thing I didn’t like was the very strong A/C and endless queue for food but otherwise worth it

      Good experience. Pick up and drop service is good. Good is good. It would have been great if it was a non smoking facility since there was too much smoke in the area. Good entertainment.
