A memorable day!
It’s a fun and enjoyable day with our tour guide Ahmed Tonsi. We were contacted the day before and everything were nicely planned with all sightseeings that we wanted to see and visits to shops of our choices for a bit of shopping (optional).
The car is comfortable and the drive Mustafa is very polite.
Best guided tour yet.
This is our third guided tour on a vacation. First two were Chichen Itza and Machu Picchu. This tour with our guide Ahmed Tonsi Tonsi was the best yet. Tonsi is very personable and professional, but most of all knowledgable. I expected to see the sights but was happily surprised with the amount of information offered up by our guide. Any questions about the sites were answered thoroughly. Our tour with Tonsi was very comfortable and friendly.
3rd great tour with Ahmed Tonsi.
Tonsinis the best hands down. Very knowledgeable and professional but friendly at the same time. He treated as a friend not just a client. He said that he would treat me as queen nefertiti and he did lol. He focused on you as a client and did his best to make sure that I was satisfied. Very happy with this tour to Memphis saqqara and dashur. The pyramids here are not as popular as guza which means less crowds. He planned a stop to get some food that I had mentioned a couple days before. He remember and is very thoughtful. He was also able to get me a deal on the papyrus paper and helped me haggle for a souvenir in Memphis. Thanks again Tonsi. You are the best!

Great tour with Tonsi
Had a very nice time with Tonsi, he showed me around and provided expert tips about everything that I needed locally (I was searching for specific products such as galabeyas and he took me to the right shops) and told me the history in a succinct and refreshing way! I liked him so much I requested him again for my second day!! Thoroughly recommended!!
Amazing Tour with Ahmed Tonsi
I had a sudden change in my itinerary and wanted to try and tour the pyramids on my layover in Cairo. I booked my tour less than 12 hours before the scheduled start time, and it turned out to be the best! He arrived on time to my hotel and made sure I was totally taken care of the entire time. He picked me up in a nice, clean, air-conditioned car and we stopped for breakfast and coffee before entering the site. Then he gave me a few different options to choose from for add-ons to the tour and I never felt pressured on any of my choices (tour inside the pyramids, camel ride, essential oils store, papyrus store, etc). I was traveling alone and he made sure I felt safe and comfortable, and helped take lots of great photos. He's very knowledgable about the history of Egypt, his English was outstanding, and you could tell he's passionate about what he does. Loved it, would highly recommend!

Kindly waited over an hour for us as our bags took forever to come out. Guide was friendly and helpful and driving was safe. Would recommend.
A trip to the sea
The trip is just as described in the information. Tonsi and Brham (spelling?) were prompt and the best tour guide and driver you can ask for. Although I did this tour alone, I felt I was with two long time friends as they are very personable, cool people. This was a great, unforgettable experience seeing some of Egypt’s great historical sites. Highly recommended!
Essam was an awesome tour guide
We brought two children (10 and 8) with us for this tour with Essam. I highly recommend him. He has so much knowledge of the tour and was very nice throughout the day. Couldn't be happier with this tour guide. When you are going on a tour, you never know what kind of tour guide you are going to get and we are glad that Essam was our tour guide. We'll be back to Cairo again!
Ahmed Tonsi made all our tours with our young boys possible and enjoyable!
We traveled with our 2 young boys and Tonsi was so kind and fun with our kids! He not only made the tours fun for us, but for our entire family. He always made sure we were comfortable and cared for at every point in our tour. He even switched cars in the middle of the day just so we could have better AC. We expected him to be knowledgeable (which he truly was), but was greatly surprised at how compassionate and kind he was to all of us! We learned so much at every site and never felt rushed or pushed to do anything we didnt want to. I absolutely recommend for anyone visiting Egypt to request him as their tour guide!

Great, flexible, tailor made and great value from Cairo airport
Wow where do I start?
So we had around 5-6 hours in between flights and found it difficult to find the right tour that would fit in the 3 main attractions we wanted to see (pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian museum). Other tours were longer (8 hrs) or had other things that we did not want (eg camel ride). This tour originally started at 8am but as our flight landed at 6.30am, our tour time was kindly rescheduled for us - very flexible to make most of our time.
On arrival at Cairo airport our amazing tour guide Essam was kindly waiting for us and gave us an excellent and thorough background into Egypt’s history whilst on the way to the pyramids. His knowledge was very impressive and he explained things very well and was patient with all our questions. Essam was also very polite and considerate making sure we had water and snacks and looked after the 4 of us throughout the whole tour. He also took amazing photos as he knew all the best spots.
Thank you again Essam for a great experience and showing us exactly what we needed in the time we had and we loved all the stories, if only we had more time! We will definitely be asking for you next time we come back to Cairo.

You will not be disappointed with this tour. Essam, our tour guide was incredible with vast Egyptian knowledge keeping us engaged the whole way, finding the best spots and made sure we were comfortable at all times. Shukran Essam. You are a credit to the tour company.
Our trip this day with Ahmed was our first of many and this adventerous day was truly satisfying. Later on we requested him a few times more for other trips because he made us feel real welcome from the first moment. He provided us with lots of explanations and overall he was a great friend to us.
We recommend emo tours because of Ahmed, he made Emo tours great and our Egypt adventure truly amazing. Thanx again to a great guide, person and friend.

Ahmed Tonsi the tour guide!!!
Very good tour guide. I fell in love with the culture and atmosphere that was Egypt. Tonsi gave us all the history and information we needed to know about Egypt. Will do it again in a heartbeat.
