TONSI. Fun guy and great tour guide! Not only were we able to get to the Pyramids easily, on our drive over, he introduced us to modern Egyptian music. At all the sites, Tonsi seemed to know everyone and everyone was happy to announce how great a guide we had. We asked to do a little shopping for which he patiently took us around and even assisted us in haggling down prices — we saved a lot and even got free items.

This is more than just a half day tour to the pyramids, it was a full Egyptian experience. We are super happy with the service we received!

My group and I ordered this half day tour initially. In the sweltering heat, the duration of the tour was just nice. Ahmed Jackson was a great guide, giving us broad insight on keops and kephren pyramids as well as it’s related temples.

Many thanks to Menna Hamdy for organising follow up custom made private trips, including a visit to the Egyptian museum and a private felucca boat ride! We were very happy with the flexibility of Emo Tours to cater to our specific needs.

Loved the experience. I booked a private tour and although this was a short notice, Emo tours quickly entertained my request. My tour guide Ola was wonderful, perfect with all the history of Egypt and very creative with clicking my pictures. I was able to see a lot in a matter of 3 hours. Thank you Ola, our driver and Emo tours for a great trip.

I would love to say thank you again Ahmed Tonsi our tour guide for such excellent service. This is my second time in Egypt both times used Tonsi from EmoTours. I will say we picked a great time to come. My husband and I already made plans to come to Egypt for our 1st wedding Anniversary and kept our plans when we seen Egypt was open as long as you had negative covid test 72hr/96hrs in advance.
We did a half day tour which included Giza pyramids, Sphinx, and Giza Plateau. On the way to pyramids please be sure to ask Tonsi to stop at the falafel shop(forgot the name)...they have the best falafel sandwich I have ever eaten. At pyramids we entered the largest pyramid(for a fee) and was able to go into the queens Chamber(a must do!). We did a camel ride at the plateau.

A few years back when we came it was extremely busy tourist everywhere. If your pretty healthy and not afraid of travel right now, I would take advantage of the decreased crowd and go right now. Egypt was safe. Tonsi our guide is so attentive to your needs, he lets you know what to expect. But overall the Egyptian people are so kind and welcoming. He’s also good at taking pictures so you don’t have to worry about who can capture the moment. Both times he have taken some of our best most memorable moments. Thank you Tonsi for your service. Thank you Emos Tours will definitely use in future!

Ahmed was an incredible guide, taking us on a journey to the ancient past. He led us from pyramid to pyramid, on camelback & foot. He spoke excellent English & was passionate about Egyptian history. I learned more about ancient Egypt in 3 hours with him than the dozens of documentaries I’ve watched (I’m a huge history nerd).

He led us into the 2nd pyramid, Khafre’s, and we experienced the magic of being at its core in the burial chamber.

Ahmed showed us the impossible architecture that makes up the different structures in the area. He was also very open minded to discussing my questions about alternative theories (Sphinx water erosion, pre-flood modern civilizations, etc.)

Overall, I couldn’t have had a more perfect experience at the pyramids complex & a more vivid dive into the mysterious world of ancient Egypt. I recommend him 1000x over.

First time in Cairo, Egypt & my sister & I had the best time with the help of our tour guide Mohamed Hamed. Two girls in a new country is always a bit scary but Mohamed made us feel at home. I highly recommend Emo Tours & especially Mohamed Hamed. Not only is he very knowledgeable, great photographer but also was able to help us in every possible way making our time in Cairo unforgettable. He was even able to help us obtain a PCR Covid test faster than most places. Thank you Mohamed for all your help! See you next year Egypt 😃

Organised trip at last minute which was no issue for EMO tours. I was picked up from my motel by Tonsi my tour guide and Moustapha the driver and driven to the Pyramids which was an awesome experience. My tour guide Tonsi was excellent and I would highly recommend EMO tours and Tonsi to anyone wanting a guided tour his knowledge and passion for Egypt was fantastic. Again give EMO tours a call and they will accommodate you.

We had a wonderful experience in the Giza complex! Our guide, Mohamed Hamed, was really helpful, knowledgeable and ready to satisfy our requests in no time. He didn't press us to visit any shops and provided us with unique views of the attractions. He also took us some amazing photos. We loved the guy!

I booked a half day tour with Emo Tour last week. My day started with my guide, Mr. Sayed Mahmoud and driver, Mohammed. Very punctual arrangement, started of at 8am and headed straight to the Giza Pleateau. Sayed gave a informative guide of the history of the pyramid. Since i'm travelling solo, he technically become my photographer as well. Moving on, we headed to the sphinx for another round of history & photo taking sessions. Since there is still a bit of time left for the tour, i requested him to bring me to a local shop selling souvenirs and trinkets. Prices is negotiable and you are not forced to get anything. Overall, it is definitely an enjoyable trip and i will definitely book with Emo Tours again.

The entire experience today was great! A person from Rimo tours contacted us the day before to confirm the trip and we were picked up from our hotel at the exact time specified. Tonsi, our guide and our driver were both extremely friendly and welcoming. Tonsi updated us about the history of the pyramids on the way. We went into the great pyramid and climbed up the steep ramp to the stone sarcophagus at the top. Then we saw the other two pyramids and enjoyed taking pictures from the viewpoint. We moved on to the great Sphinx and took some special pictures there. Tonsi took us to a shop selling medallions but there was no compulsion to buy. We had a buffet lunch at a nice restaurant and returned to our hotel.
