        Super cultural visit
        Amazing visit. Shirine our guide and Mahmoud pick us up at our hotel to go visit the temples. They were super nice welcoming. Shirine is super knowledgeable and listening to her is passionating. She answered all our questions with patience and interest. The visits are made in two times, first the visit and then a time to take pictures. Would recommand to do the Karnak temple first if you do it in the morning to avoid the crowd as we did. The crew was really great it was a super experience.

        Super efficient
        Everything went like clockwork. Could have gone to Abu Simbel first and then Philae Island. We felt a bit rushed because the road would close They ensured we had vegetarian food and there were huge portions Guides were very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English The Luxor lady asked us many times about shopping and we did indulge in some nice perfumed oils Overall a delightful tour if you are short on time

        A Full Day of Egyptian History and Breathtaking Views
        Our guide - Ahmed Kassem, and driver - also Ahmed, made our experience of touring Luxor delightful! We visited all 5 locations of interest and were taught so much about Egyptian history. Ahmed Kassem encouraged us to explore the sites at our own pace, answered all the questions we had, and often advised us on how to get the best experience. In addition to the tour locations, we visited an immersive souvenir shop and a restaurant, which were both surprisingly pricey for Egypt.

        Must do Luxor tour
        Very well organized tour by Emo tours. The guide was good and the driver was kind too. They were on time and whole tour to Karnak temple, Luxor temple and the lunch was amazing. My daughter slept in between so they customized and covered one spot which afterwards. The lunch served was very fresh and local.

        Excellent Service and Experience
        We landed in Luxor airport, and our tour guide Salwa was there to greet us. We immediately started the tour by going to the Karnak Temple, then we went to the Valley of the Kings, then to the Temple of Hatshepsut afterwards we went to Colossi of Memnon and lastly to the Luxor Temple. It was a jammed packed day, and having a driver really helped going from one place to another, especially in the heat of the day. 😉 Highly recommend planning your activities with EMO Tours!

        A great tour - minus the unplanned shopping stops.
        The sight we saw were amazing, and our guide Ahmed was knowledgeable and a good companion for the day. We had a blast and our driver Khaled helped to get us to every location in a safe and efficient manner. The only downside to the tour was the stops at different shops (gold & alabaster) throughout the tour. While these were fun, we ended up spending a-lot less time seeing the sights (colossi of Memnon says 1 hour, we spent maybe 5 minutes), because we were taken to different places that were not on the itinerary and this consumed time and energy on a 46 degree day. If you fly 18 hours across the world, you don't want to spend the time doing things you can do in your own country. Not a biggie, but just some constructive criticism. All in all, I would book the tour again.

        Wonderful experience!
        My partner and I did a private tour with Salwa and it was wonderful. Salwa gave good information, was very knowledgeable, kind, and the experience was smooth and great overall. We ate at a nice restaurant on the Nile and water was provided.

        Terrible tour. Bad experience Pyrmaud Giza toru.
        Don’t recommend. Feel like got rob for the money. I booked half day tour for Giza pyramid, sphinx and quad bike tour with guid for 2, cost 60 USD each. The operators confirmed pick up at 7.30, the the guide pick us up at 8. Nobody’s answer the phone no confirmation with driver and guide details. The guide took to visit pyramid, took few pictures and explain just 5 mins beside Giza pyramid. Then tried to sell us camel ride to see good pyramid view. We took the ride, just 15 mins only straight line from one view to another view, didn’t go nearby any pyramid. After that guide didn’t took us nearby any pyramid, we didn’t see any pyramid in that area. He tried to sell us more tour ie papyrus, oil tour. When he took us to see sphinx, he just park beside the road to let us took pictures. We insist to see closer, he took us climb over the wall, didn’t bring us to proper entrance. He spent 5 mins explaination. Then he dropped us at quad bike for 30 mins. Whe we back from quad bike, he tried to sell us more tour and ask us to pay 60 USD for additional camel. I complained to tour operators and they inform to refund 60 USD. We followed up few time still didn’t get any money back. This is the worse experience ever. We left Cairo with bad experience and don’t have chance to go back visit pyramid again. Don’t recommend this tour company.

        Congratulations for this team!!
        Amazing service! My guide was the very BEST. Knows very well what she was talking about. An experience that I’d do a million times more. I went by my own (as a woman you probably know how insecure you can feel going to a different country with such different culture) well they made me feel really good and secure all the time! Picked me up on time with really nice cars. And my guide was amazing. Open to take me millions of pics!!! I’ll never forget the time there! Thank you for making that experience just PERFECT.

        MOSTUFA IS THE TOUR GUIDE LEGEND
        YOU HAVE TO REQUEST MOSTUFA!!!!!! He was the best tour guide ever - a legend at explaining the history, translating hieroglyphs, takings pictures and giving us insight into local culture. We learnt so much and had the best time. I cannot rate him high enough and this tour was the absolute best way to see the sights.

      We had an amazing half day tour to dendara temple, only Greco-Roman temple. We had to cut the tour short because I didnt feel that well, but nevertheless, it’s amazing to see it and I would definitely recommend it. We had Remon for the second day in a row, and it’s the only guide I consider taking as he’s VERY passionate about Egyptian history, explains everything very well and answers every question, and then gives you free time to take pictures and see the temple.
      Thank you emo tours and Remon !

      It is about 3 hrs, each way, from Luxor but the temples are magnificent. Our guide, Ahmed Omar, was excellent. In addition to the detailed explanations about the temples, he also gave us a summary of ancient Egyptian history that helped to put everything in perspective and appreciate even more the visit.
      The colors still present on the columns are beautiful and the carvings well preserved. The areas that have been cleaned compared to the ones that have not gone to the process yet, shows the skills and dedication of the Egyptian people to their historic sites. It was special to see the list of many kings carved on one of the walls. A record of different dynasties.
      And yes, we saw, the alleged helicopter and space ship on the carvings. They really don't look like such

      This was by far a splendid surprise!

      We had a little time to cut and our guided recommended this half day tour, and she was most right to take us there!! We loved it! It was totally astonishing temple ! We loved to visit it with Dina as we were two females travelling, and felt with a friend. The temple itself is totally under-rated it is if not my favorite visit in Luxor ! Full of surprises, secret rooms... etc
      It speaks for itself!

      It’s 1 h ride back and forth but worth the time and money. The sculptures are so well preserved and the colours still very appreciated! Adding a few pictures because it is truly a treasure to discover!
      Most thanks to our wonderful guide ask for Dina!

      Salam ask for Dina!

      Our guide Ahmed-Omar and driver Ali were excellent they were friendly and not pushy and asked our preferences for everything. Ahmed was a great informative guide and took us to a great local restaurant for lunch in Abydos. Could not recommend both them and the temples visited highly enough.

      We had an amazing time with our guide Sam. We learned a lot from Dendara and Abydos, which are must see attractions while staying on Luxor, and finished the day with a meal with a great view. Its definitely necesary to have a knowleadgeable guide in order to really appreciate the scope and longevity of the temples and egyptian culture. Great experience.

      Had Hassan Mageed as a tour guide and fantastic driver tour me around the Dendara and Abydos Temples, which are off the beaten path from Luxor. Hassan was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed explanations of the history of the temples. If you have extra time in Luxor, definitely worth it plus a great way to see the country side of Egypt during the drive.

      I would definitely recommend this to anyone having some time in Luxor. It’s a long ride to dendarah (and abydos but we didn’t do that) but it’s worth seeing it.
      If you can you should have Remon as your guide because he explained everything about the place very well in a very calm and amazing way !

      Dendara and Abydos are amazing sites to visit and worth the trip. Our tour guide, Ghada, was the best guide we have ever had - she has a deep knowledge of Egyptian history and is an excellent guide. It really made our tour a good experience. If it had been possible, I would have done our whole Egypt trip with her. Our driver (Moussala) was very competent too. The pair of them made this an unforgettable experience.

      Reham, our tour guide, covered several scenes of reliefs and hieroglyphs which we wanted to understand a bit more. She enhanced our knowledge of the temples, their purpose and reasons why the architecture was mixed or different. Very knowledgeable, thank you Reham we will be back next year.

      Our guide Sam made the day for us. His interesting stories information and knowledge managed to make this tour a great success. He not only hared a great deal of information but also gave time for taking photos and time to feel the spots by ourselves after giving his valuable information. A private tour must be like that.
