My third day with Sayed Mahmoud to show me around and this time, as per his excellent recommendation, we visited Dahshur, Memphis and Sakkara. First I wanted to make a day trip to Luxor from Cairo, but Sayed advised me to do this one instead. And how right was he.
We started of in Dahshur, visiting the Bent and red pyramid of Sneferu. Again Sayed planned this day to match my needs perfectly. First of all, the site was pretty much empty of people. He told me that entering the pyramids was not easy and that was right. But it was a great experience to go in. The bent pyramid is a though one and the long steps down take a while, but then you really feel inside of the structure. The same goes for the Red pyramid, although slightly easier. As we left more people were coming, but I had a nice enough time by myself exploring the pyramids.
After that, and again Sayed patiently answering all my questions and having a very nice conversation about many things related to the history, we set off for Memphis.
In Memphis we saw the big statue of Ramses II and looked in detail at the craftsmanship of this colossus. The fact that Sayed was able to translate some of the hieroglyphics was such a rich experience. His passion when he talks about these sites really adds to the place. We saw the second largest sphinx in egypt, the one of Hatsepsut and walked around a bit on the site.
Then we set off for Sakkara, starting with the Serapeum, and add on to the tour I can really recommend. The tunnel system and especially large sarcophagi made a real impact. Seeing an experienced guide like Sayed in awe at the marvel of engineering transmitted a lot of energy. Then we went to the tomb of King Teti, before which Sayed taught me some hieroglyphics and I was able to read his name encarved in the tomb everywhere.
The tomb of grand vizier Kagemni followed and it was a not to miss part of this tour. The lively depictions of this important man's life really show what it was like back then and how similar things are now. Sayed pointed out some excellent details and I tried to add my own as well. I was slowly starting to feel like an amateur egyptologist.
We ended this day at the step Pyramid of kind Djoser. An iconic landmark with the giza Plateau in the back ground.
I cannot recommend enough how wonderful these sights were as they were most likely the highlight of my trip so far.
Thanks you, Sayed, for making it an unforgettable trip and the nice relaxing tea we had with the security guard.

My husband and I did this tour in Sept 22, and it was excellent. They arrived at the agreed time, the car was clean and the driver was careful. Hussain was very knowledgeable and friendly, told us a lot about Egypt, Cairo and the sights we were visiting. He offered a few stops but wasn’t pushy at all when we declined (we know some guides put unnecessary shopping stops on your route). We can’t recommend this enough!

I had Sayed Mahmoud as my guide for the second day and I couldn’t be happier - very knowledgeable, accommodating, and professional. He tries his best to give you an authentic Egyptian experience and I would recommend him for any tours in Cairo.

I also had Ashraf Kranshy as the driver and was surprised by how professional he was and how safely he drove. I’ve met many drivers in Cairo but he was by far the best driver I’ve had. When you book a tour make sure you ask for both of them. They make a great combo!

Brilliant decision to go with Emo Tours! Saqqara is such a unique and special place. A lovely oasis with palm trees among the ancient pyramids. Mohammed Hammed was the perfect guide for our visit. He made the history of the area come alive with stories of how the pyramids and surrounding tombs came about. He was smart, personable and so respectful of us and the history of Saqqara. Big bonus points: he’s a shockingly good photographer! Pictures he took of my friend and I were so good that we spent the evening at our hotel sending photos back home. Family and friends kept remarking “Egypt agrees with you!”
That is on top of the expert details and overview we received from his tour.
I can recommend Emo Tours whole heartedly!

We highly recommend doing this trip and going out to the more tranquil and quiet desert to see these amazing sights....a highlight of our 3 weeks in Egypt as you really get a sense of the pyramids being so epic in such a quiet place. Small but good museum in Memphis is worth a look too. Our guide, driver and vehicle was on time for pick up. Good clean vehicle with air conditioning, water and entrance fees all taken care of as promised. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly and made the trip for the 4 of us very enjoyable. The lunch was excellent. We also asked to not have any forced shopping stops as we wanted to send more time at the sites and that was no problem. We tipped both driver and guide well as they were very professional and kind. These are very historic pyramids and a must see. BE sure to ask to go see the API BULLS burial tombs as part of this trip. As the photos show, there are not many tourists there so it really gives you a sense of the amazing structures in the desert. AMAZING!!

It was our guide, Ahmed, who really made this tour, but the booking process via Emo Tours was seamless and everything ran as we could have hoped. It’s rare for tours to encompass Dahshur (as well as Memphis, Sakkara and Giza), but this tour is much better for it - that’s why we chose this tour, and Dahshur was arguably our favourite part. I was a bit sceptical before going, but I’d recommend Emo Tours to anyone in Egypt. We were also in two minds about including lunch in our booking, but in the end we did so and we felt that it was definitely the right decision.

My partner, my father and I were very interested in the Saqquara and Dashur sites. There was a lot of stuff we specifically wanted to see - the step pyramid, the apis bulls serapium etc. There is just so much to see and explore around there, it’s actually worthy of a lot of time and we’ll be back.

We’d highly recommend Emo Tours to take you there. Sharif was an amazing an informative guide, without being too intrusive on what we wanted to do. In fact, we got to see some amazing bits we otherwise wouldn’t have seen, thanks to his knowledge. He was highly educated and articulate. Bus was clean and comfy, and our driver was also excellent.

We just did a half day tour with EMO Tours Egypt to Saqqara, Memphis, and Dahshur and it was amazing.

We had Tolba as our driver and he was beyond helpful. He made sure we saw the things that were most important, shared his knowledge with us, bargained for us, and made sure that we made it on time to each site (my husband and I both tend to take a while at each place and almost didn’t make it to Memphis in time).

It was such an easy trip and we didn’t have to worry about anything the whole time. Honestly, the easiest way to do it.

As a side note, the bent pyramid in Dahshur is not for the faint of heart. The way down is the most difficult we experienced in the Giza area and then getting to the top is quite tight and has bats. I would still say worth it but be warned.

We booked a second tour with EMO and Mr Yusuf to visit Saqqara, Memphis, Egyptian Museum, Citadel etc. Very professional team, very knowledgeable and kind hearted Mr Yusuf took care of us and took us around the places. Never get rushed, he knew exactly what to show and talk on things of interest. Mr Yusuf was also able to share his views on the culture of Cairo and Egypt. I would highly recommend EMO tours and if you are lucky to have Mr Yusuf as your guide then you will get the best out of your trip
