I booked a custom private tour with Tonsi Tonsi to see parts of Islamic Cairo that would not be covered in my group tour that started the next day. As two of the main components of the regular Islamic Cairo tour were removed we added in the museum where the mummies were all just moved to. Tonsi Tonsi was very helpful in planning my trip and a good communicator.

Ayman was our guide and when I tell you he was the best he was the absolute best! His knowledge was outstanding he answered all questions no matter how silly or obvious! Ayman and the driver were friendly and accommodating. We ate at a wonderful local restaurant and the food was tasty and filling. The tour of Islamic Cairo was so inspiring and comforting! We visited The Citadel of Cairo awesomeness, we visited the oldest Mosque in Cairo and many more! We visited the Khan Khalil Market and saw and experienced so much more! Thank you Ayman our last day in Egypt was amazing!

We specifically requested Mahmoud al Wakeel to be our guide (he was also our guide for the Coptic Cairo, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar day tour and we were impressed by him). I cannot state enough the good knowledge he has and how helpful and respectful he is. His stories are so funny and interesting.

Ahmed Zaki from Emo Tours guided us for a 5 hour Islamic Cairo tour. From beginning to end, the process has been hassle free. He called me the day before to organize our hotel pick up and we agreed on everything. Ahmed has been a tour guide for 20 years, so he knows a lot about every site and you can tell how passionate he is. Ahmed was friendly everywhere to all people, security, driver etc, which made it pleasant and easy for us, he also invited us to an amazing falafel sandwich. We booked an english tour and Ahmed speaks the language.

Essam was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide to the historic mosques in Cairo and to Islamic al Moezz Street. His enjoyment in sharing his knowledge of the mosques we visited and the history of Islam in Cairo was contagious. I highly recommend him as a guide - and kudos to our driver who navigated the crazy Cairo traffic.

We booked the photography tour of Islamic Cairo for 8 Dec 2019. Ahmed was our guide who met us promptly at our hotel. We confirmed the locations we wanted to see with Ahmed, and were off to begin our adventure. Driving in Cairo is an adventure, so the hotel pick-up and drop-off were stress free.

Ahmed was knowledgable, professional and he pointed us toward wonderful, unique photo locations. We covered the alabaster mosque, the Citadel and the Khan el-Khalili bazaar. All were beautiful, must-see sights! Ahmed was a warm and welcoming part of our Egypt trip, and we are most appreciative.
