Essam G. & Abdo, BEST team for Alexandria!
I didn't know what to expect coming to Alexandria, but WOW. Without a doubt we would not have been able to truly experience the essence of this amazing city without our AMAZING Egyptologist, Essam Gamian and private car driver, Abdo El Azeem. Essam is extremely knowledgeable about his craft and clearly takes pride in educating visitors about the rich history of his beloved country. Abdo transported us safely throughout our entire trip, and we absolutely do not regret paying the extra money for the Private Tours! They are worth every penny, and then some. Tips are not included, so please be prepared to tip accordingly for an all-day, life-changing step into history! Essam & Abdo, we cannot thank you enough! We will definitely be back! I've included some pictures here, but they just do not do justice to the experience! 11/10!!! If you're considering this tour, do it, and request these fabulous gentlemen for everything Cairo, Giza, & Alexandria!

Great day trip and awesome guide
May 2021 • Couples
Our guide Aymon G was one of the kindest people we’ve met in Egypt. He and the driver took exceptional care of us as we drove to Alexandria. Once there he planned a really great tour packed with the most interesting places to visit. Although the library was closed, we felt the tour was top notch and that Aymon did a great job helping us contextualize and understand the places and artifacts we were seeing. He made sure to get pictures of us as well which is always really nice. It was well worth the trip and we are very grateful for his services. Thank you!!

Five-star guide; three-star area
This one is a little tricky to write. First of all, our guide, Nesma, was fabulous. We visited the pyramids with her the day before and had a wonderful time. She was knowledgeable throughout, and we were glad that she was our guide for both trips. Our driver for the visit to Alexandria, Mustafa, was also great.

However, there just wasn’t all that much to see in Alexandria that we hadn’t seen earlier in Luxor, Giza and Memphis. The Catacombs were interesting; the Roman Theatre was nice, but the area felt poorly maintained. The Citadel, where the Lighthouse of Alexandria once stood, was impressive, and the best place for pictures. Unfortunately, the famous library was closed, which was a great shame. With Nesma and Mustafa, we had a lovely local lunch and an ice cream.

Overall, if you’re interested in visiting Alexandria, then it’s worth the trip. If you’re not that bothered, then perhaps reconsider the three-hour each way journey.

The company was friendly, informative and relaxed. Each area visited had its own twist and tales! The history always fascinating but more so the explanations to its influence on culture. Thank You!
Lunch was at the perfect spot complimented and ice cream from nearby area a nice surprise.
Local & historic knowledge combined with professionalism with tourists highly recommended.

A great tour of Cairo and Alexandria
Dec 2020 • Solo
I had two tours with Bossi and Ibrahim of Emo tours. One from Cairo to Alexandria and the other one was Cairo city tour. I had an amazing time with these two. They were friendly, personable, easy going, knowledgeable,kind, caring. They made my trip in Egypt such a memorable experience. Ibrahim gifted me with a "Muslim Rosary" and Bossi gifted me with a necklace and head scarf. It felt like I was visiting family in Egypt. I had a total of 4 tours with Emo tours, but these two tours were outstanding. If you are reading this review, ask for Bossi and Ibrahim as your tour guide and driver and you will not regret. Bossi's English is almost perfect. I had a really awesome time.

Feel yourself moving through history
Dec 2020 • Family
Really interesting trip. The catacombs were fascinating and city fort was amazing. With both those sites, as well as the Temple and the New Great Library, you could feel yourself moving through the timeline of history. The hustle and bustle of the current inhabitants, going about their daily business really provides a sense of how old Alexandria is and how life moves along, irrespective of kings and princes and politics. Our guide, Sayed, was knowledgeable and paced the tour well. Our driver, also Sayed, was wonderful, as he moved our lovely new vehicle down narrow, busy streets (half the time I didn't think he would make it with the car undamaged). It was a great day trip from Cairo.

Great experience!
Mar 2020 • Solo
I went on this tour by myself after my two week Egypt tour. My guide was Mohamed Salah and my driver was Abdala. They were both fantastic. They were friendly and accommodating. We saw a lot in a short amount of time. I wish I had more time to explore some of the sites, but I know we were on a schedule. I highly recommend them and this tour!
