It was a fantastic experience . The guide made sure to stop at Edfu and Komombo temples . She explained the details of carvings and history behind the . In Aswan the high dam was grand but the visit to filae tower was superb . We took a boat to reach the Islands and enjoy the temple .
We had a nice lunch stop at a cofte shop.
The guide showed me Nubian villages on the way which were quite impressive .

Great half day tour
I used Emo Tours for trips to both Abu Simbel and Philae Temple while I was in Aswan. Mona was my guide for both and she was wonderful. The van was comfortable and they always made sure we had plenty of water. Great service!

We started with the high dam about a 20 min drive away. Mona told the history of the old dam, high dam, and the current dam under construction. It had nice views of Lake Nasser, but I only needed a few minutes there.

We then went to the highlight of this tour- Philae Temple. You have to take a boat to the temple (don’t forget to bring 20egp for a tip, which is not included in the price- this is Egypt after all, tipping is expected everywhere). Because of the covid situation, I had the temple to myself except for a group of three who came at the end. It was unexpected and great for photos!

The temple itself has a very interesting mythology and was the last temple closed in Egypt after the conversion to Christianity. Parts of the temple were converted into churches and the early Christians defaced many of the images, but many others are still whole. It’s definitely a must-see if you’re in Aswan!

We ended with a quick stop at the unfinished obelisk. It was interesting to see the half finished obelisk and also a half-finished statue just to get a sense of their true size and the process of creating them but, again, this was a 5-10 minute stop.

Fantastic experience with Ebtesam (Basma)
I and my girlfriend visited Egypt and we were looking for a tour and guide of Aswan. Basma was our tour guide and we had such a delightful experience: she was so kind and knowledgeable, and manage to make us enjoy every minute of our day. I definitely recommend Basma as tour guide if you’ll ever visit Aswan!

Fantastic experience with Ebtesam(Basma)
I used Emo tours for both Aswan and Luxor. Ebtesam(Basma) was my tour guide in Aswan and was an absolute delight. My flight into Aswan from Cairo was delayed, she waited patiently, ensured there were adequate refreshments and did a great job explaining to me about how the High Dam, and Lake Nasser came about. We took the boat ride to visit the Philae temple, followed by a drive to Abu Simbel and then back to my hotel in Aswan. She is well versed in Egyptology and pointed out to me the nuances in the carvings of Ramses II, explained the symbolism and the influence of the coptics. All in all I would highly recommend Ebtesam and Emo tours.

Salwa was the most wonderful guide!
Jan 2020
I really enjoyed Aswan and it wouldn't have been that great without our amazing tour guide Salwa. She was so kind and patient. Her English was perfect too!
she's super knowledgeable! answering all of our questions and we learned a lot from her. She always made sure we're comfortable enough throughout the day, made sure we got lunch and snacks, took many pictures of us and was super fun! Thank you, Emo for choosing Salwa to be our tour guide. I highly recommend her for anyone visiting Aswan or Luxor!!!

Fun and Educational Tour with Ebtesam(Basma)
Oct 2019
I did this tour with a group of six family members. Basma was our guide for Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, the High Dam and, Aswan to Luxor via Edfu and Kom Ombo Temple. We also did Abu Simbel with her. After our first day with her, we knew we wanted her for the rest of our tours, so we called and made the request. We wanted to take her with us to Luxor, but unfortunately we got another guide. Basma was not only knowledgable in Egyptian history, but she was professional and extremely friendly. She made the tours fun by making our family part of the Egyptian history. Which kept us vested in the history as we wanted to hear about our fates as Egyptian gods.

In regards to Emo Tours, I had a few issues with them in regards to communication and late arrivals. We booked them for our airport transfers, travel to and from cities and individual tours. They ran late on most of their airport transfers. Our arrival to Cairo we waited 45 minutes! We had to call every time and inquire where they were. Their communication for the tour start times were also poor. One day the driver would tell us pick-up was 5:00 am, the guide (not Basma) would tell us 6:00 then we would get an e-mail later in the day saying pick-up was 7:00 am.

The positives, the vans were very nice and comfortable. They always made sure we had plenty of water and snacks. All in all, I would use them again. We had two other guides besides Basma and they too were great and catered to what we wanted to do.
