      Awesome drive from Cairo to Hughada
      Wonderful professional ride from Cairo to Hurghada! My driver, Mohammad, was wonderful! A great driver and person, we had wonderful conversation throughout the 6 hour transit, and, he brought plenty of water for me too, and had a great radio playlist too! We're both Bob Marley fans! One love and thanks always for a safe trip!

      Filthy dirty awful
      This is the most disgustingly filthy thing I have ever had the displeasure of needing to be in. No running water, no soap, no towels. The toilets had no running water so they just filled with toilet paper. The rooms were freezing with no heat, we slept in our clothes and coats. The overhead light was broken so it stayed on all night. Breakfast was bread 5 kinds of bread, 1 tiny cup of coffee and if you wanted a second cup there was an extra charge. This is not a fun adventure, it is so filthy you will want to soak in a vat of disinfectant.

      Do not travel on the night sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan. It is disgustingly dirty. Toilets awash with urine, windows filthy, carpet in ribbons, etc. The attendant did his best, but this service is awful.

      Aswan to Cairo Train (87). If you’re thinking of a nice trip, think again
      The overnight train from Aswan through Luxor to Giza and Cairo. We left Luxor on time. The dinner meal was barely edible. The sleeper cabins (first class) are old and dirty. The bathroom makes you sick. I’d recommend flying if possible as it’s cheaper after they increased fares for foreigners in late 2022 by 350%. They should spend some of this on renovating the carriages and employing cleaning staff before and during the journey.

      Filthy and a bit of a rip off!
      The train is filthy and definitely not worth $168. The guard was nice and helpful, but that is where my positive comments finish. I would not take this again and wish I hadn't taken it in the first please. Fly if you can.

      If you don’t want want to buy plane tickets, get this transfer from Cairo to the Red Sea
      We took this transfer from Cairo to Hurghada because we are a family of four and buying plane tickets were not in our plans, the driver even though that couldn’t speak English he was very patience and waited for us in the hotel lobby for our transfer, we were comfortable he even offer us water and stop for 20 mins so we can buy snacks or eat something. I really appreciate that this service was available and the price was reasonable.

      Fantastic experience!
      The whole experience was fantastic! Very well organized, punctual, and smooth. I was picked up from my hotel by Walid Elshaer who was incredibly nice, kind, helpful, and friendly. He kept me well entertained before my train arrived. In Luxor, my guide was Hisham and he’s absolutely amazing! I highly recommend him. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, gives lots of fascinating historical facts, details, and answers any questions. He’s also very sweet and ready to customize details of your tour depending on your preferences such as give more time and attention to in-depth historical information, give you more/less time to explore by yourself, help you with photos, tweak the time when you want to eat lunch, add extra activities, etc. It’s a fantastic tour and the spectacular sights themselves are must-see for anyone visiting Egypt. Highly recommend.

      HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!
      I had a wonderful time in Cairo because of Emo Tours. On my first day , brother Rahman took me to the famous Nile Cruise, where I had an absolute blast, Rahman is an absolute gem of a person and we had alot of fun. The next day was my full day tour to Giza Pyramids & Egyptian Museum & the Citadel, my guid Abdul Wahid was absolutely fantastic, he's a very knowledgeable, humble guy who actually wants the tourists to have an amazing experience (I'm truly thankful to him as he made my day an absolute eventful one). A very big shout out to Mr. Waheed (The driver of the car on my full day tour), an absolute delight of a person. All in all I highly highly highly recommend Emo Tours to everyone who's in Cairo. Keep up the amazing work guys, I'll definitely see you guys very soon :)

      Low cost trip to Cairo, they take you to experience the city. If you are looking for high end service that isn't the option, but if you want to experience the city plus the attractions you most probably came to Egypt for they will take care of you.

      Cheaper than other variants, and more comfortable
      We did the transfer from cairo to Hurgada. Initially i looked for plane, or car rental. Finally i found this option and this is the cheapest and most comfortable one. Emo tour = they were very professional from the booking (flexible with schedule) to the end. Friendly staff inside, feeling of security (1 driver + another one). Talkative if you want to, but know also to respect time for the family. There is a stop for lunch after 2,5 hours of road. Car is big. We were 5, there were 8 seats for us = enables to change seat on the way, if a kid wants to sleep. I recommend !

      The Manufacturing and Learning Part Was Only For A Few Seconds!!!
      I expected something much more than the few seconds I was given explaining the process of manufacturing. The main interest was to sell me Papyrus paintings. They were good to look at but I didn't want to shell out good money on buying.

    We tried three tour guides in Egypt so far, and this one by Mr Ahmed Hamed is by no doubt the best. He has strong knowledge of Egyptian history and culture, which he explained it with clarity and lucidity.

    He also knows the local secrets well. I was looking to buy cartouches and he was able to get me a good price by bringing me to a upstairs wholesale shop in the downtown bazaar.

    Last but not least, he knows those hidden photo spots in every attraction where he took some very good photos of us!

    Definitely recommend this tour and tour guide for Cairo as well as the rest of Egypt.

    To start, they arrived late. I got a message at start time they would be 20 minutes late due to traffic. Traffic is a very accepted issue in Cairo, how did they not plan for this?

    The tour guide, Sayed, also continuously complained about the heat all day long. It was extremely annoying. If he wasn’t prepared for 90 degrees, he should not be an Egypt tour guide in the summer. It was hot, but I was completely fine.

    The Islamic Cairo portion of the tour was fine. He gave me base level information, not a ton of details, and was fixated with telling me “there are a lot of details in the architecture). I didn’t learn much but felt we covered it well. I was frustrated when he saw his buddy at the second stop and wanted me to stop and listen to a Quran reading (clearly for a tip for the guy), which I refused.

    Probably the worst tour I’ve ever had for Khan El-khalili and Coptic Cairo.

    For Coptic cairo, he gave me ZERO information. To say he wasn’t knowledgeable might be a compliment. He pointed out none of the very important fixtures or the sites including the viewing area of the hanging church, the Virgin Mary painting, the dark pillar, etc…luckily I had read about them in advance. Quite frankly; this was a bad tour.

    It got worse with Khan El Khalili. Our first stop was before Coptic Cairo, he walked me down one, wide street, with very few shops, telling me it’s better to see this part and not be busy. I told him that was absolutely not the experience I wanted at a busy bazaar and the point was to see the hustle and bustle there. He said we could come back later. We did, I almost wish we didn’t. I followed him around, through 3 dead ends, once he circled the same block twice, it was as if he had never been there before. I asked about the spices, he couldn’t explain them to me.

    Honestly, this tour was awful and Sayed was one of the worst tour guides I have ever had.

    Amazing tour guide. Has so much fun. Learned a lot about the culture. Took me to the best pure fresh sugarcane juice in the morning to start. After touring and learning all the culture, religions, and beautiful churches and mosques, Ola ended my New Year’s Eve with a bang. She took me to a fine dining traditional Egyptian lunch on a floating restaurant overlooking the River Niles. What else can one ask for when you try to find the best you can from this year of 2020! I was touched!

    Ola our guide is fluent in three languages Arabic , Russian and English . She was very patient from the getgo. We weren’t able to make at our start time due to our kids not waking up in time but she and her driver were very understanding .

    She is very knowledgeable in Egyptian history. Gave us a very good tour we ended up learning a lot . We felt at ease with her .

    We did do some side shopping (never pressed to buy anything we didn’t want ) . We wanted some scarfs and she at the end took us there .

    Our driver Farag was well dressed (suited )and extremely professional.

    Strongly recommend Ola and Farag. The van was spacious and comfortable .

    Adel Hakem was my guide and he was excellent. He is very cultured and knowledgeable; he explained to me a lot of information in detail and was very attentive and kind. I loved his explanations while we were in this historical areas, everything became more meaningful. The driver was also very good. Great day!

    What can I say other than it was amazing. Ayman is not only extremely knowledgeable but also someone who is full of personality and very easy to get along with. All my questions were answered and he was very open to anything I wanted to talk about or took an interest in. Also, Muhammed is one of the best drivers Ive ever seen. Cairo roads are no joke and he made it look EASY! I will definitely reccomend Emo tours to all my friends, especially if its with Ayman and Muhammed.

    I had this tour of the Coptic and Islamic Cairo with Housam and he is an excellent guide. I had a great time and learnt a lot about the history of this place and now consider myself educated. Housam was detailed , paced and gave me my free time and I managed to digest and take in the sights. The architecture is beautiful and this is a must do tour. Especially with Housam as your guide.
