          A great ho day
          This site is so great and not touristy….. it has gorgeous colours and tumbs….. If you love Egyptology and want less croud, you are in the right spot. Our guide was very caring and very happy to do her job….. She knows everything about the site….. well done… we had a great time

          Excellent!
          Our guide, Sam, was excellent! He could read the hieroglyphs like I read English, and his knowledge of the locations was superb. We were given plenty of time to explore each tomb/temple and were shown some absolute treats - my favourite was the tomb of the artisan who decorated his own resting place beautifully! Sam ensured we missed the crowds and still got us back to the hotel in time for lunch! Thank you!

          Enchanting experience.
          Enchanting experience in Feluka, thanks to my new found friend and driver Muhammad, who took extra care to show me around in Luxor, West and East Bank. As I was a bit tired and not keen but Muhammad insisted and arranged the most memorable concluding trip in the evening. A long ride of about an hour and half was spectacular with cool breeze and scintillating views. The day was the festival day after month long Ramadan, I can never forget the human warmth and unconditional hospitality from my friend Muhammad. It was really a God sent moment for me.

          Great guides & drivers but organisers are dreadful…..book with a different company!
          We booked 2 tours in Egypt with Emo Tours via Viator, the first a day tour to Dendera and Abydos from Luxor with our Guide Amira and driver Ahmed. Both were good @ what they did and we enjoyed our tour of the temples, in particular Dendera….fantastic. Amira tried to dissuade us from continuing on to Abydos, because of the long drive and suggested they could take us to Habu on the West Bank instead….after paying all that money for the tour and being already part way there, and Habu was already on our list for the next day to the West Bank…..it was a definite No thank you. The organisers via the Viator app, insisted that it was 3 hours @ each temple even though I suggested that it was surely 3hrs for both temples!! What we did get in reality was 1 hour @ each temple….which was fine, but we got up really early for the 8am pickup to allow the time, only to find we were back @ our hotel by 4.30. Organisation 1/5 Guide & Driver 4/5 The second tour was the one that I was really excited about our day tour to Abu Simbel from Aswan….booked it through Viator 6 months out and Emo Tours admin contacted me immediately about sending Passport details for the journey (in Egypt for safety reasons you need to provide travellers details for the check points in advance….but 6 mths in advance???!! Had my doubts about sending this type of information via WhatsApp and to a tour company but they assured me that it was necessary and safe! Then several days before our tour to Abu Simbel Emo admin contacted me again and asked for passport details again. Explained I had already sent them and to check with the Emo staff member that I had sent them to. They kept harassing me via WhatsApp and saying the information was required, again, or we couldn’t do our tour. Having sent them already before and goodness knows what had happened to probably your most important ID document, I was forced to send the information again. We were appalled by what had happened…..identity fraud is a big issue and Emo Tours need to get themselves organised. I found this experience very stressful. Organisation 0/5 Now to the actual tour…..If you are an extreme extrovert…..you will love our guide Samir…..he is full of information, is extremely well prepared with maps of the temples, photos etc. However, he is very loud and likes to talk, a lot…..as an extreme introvert I found him overwhelming and just wanted some quiet time on the 3hr journey there and needed it even more on the 3hr journey back. Our driver Shico was great, but he couldn’t get a word in! The temple of Ramses was disappointing, as the lighting inside is extremely poor…..so poor it was difficult to take photos or to see how the photos had come out…..unfortunately many were blurred. Other travellers had the same problem, we were all groping about in the dark ☹ Nefertari’s temple wasn’t quite as dark, but we were left wondering why the darkness when Seti 1 tomb in the VoK was well lit as was Nefertari’s tomb in VoQ. Guide 3/5 extrovert score 5/5 Driver 4/5 Highly recommend you book these tours with a different company, wish we had!

          Amazing architecture!
          Learned so much. Temples were absolutely amazing. Went to valley of the Queens and didn’t see Queen Nefertiti tomb because it was an additional $45! Please note that this tomb is not included in the ticket price.

          Fabulous trip on the Nile
          We had a wonderful experience on the cruise up the Nile with our guide Ayad Altayeb. In addition to the included sites we booked the hot air balloon ride on the 2nd day (which I do reccomend). The trip was made all the more enjoyable by Ayad, who took great care of us. On the site visits he explained the subject in the right amount of detail for us - we had many questions :) Between site visits he was very happy to take us on quick walks in the village we were staying at, giving us an interesting view of the current rural Egypt. We also had delightful conversations with Ayad on the boat, leaving with us a very good impression of Egypt and Egyptian culture. The sites were very impressive (as expected) and the cruise itself was very nice and relaxing with great food and great staff. We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in discovering ancient Egypt while enjoying relaxing time on the Nile.

          Need guides who are interested in their job!
          We paid for a premium service. The guide was least interested in providing us with the service. She would utter a few sentences regarding the place and would give us "free time". Basically, we were on our own for the whole tour. This was supposed to be a guided tour, not a taxi service

          Good guide. Comfortable stay. Enjoyable cruise.
          The pic of the ship is not the same as actual. But we were satisfied with Nile Shams. It was an old cruise but hospitality was good. The guide Ahmed Qassim of Emo tours was excellent in taking care of us and was good in his knowledge of the local area and helped us get good bargains everywhere. He accompanied us in shopping and also did arabic translations for us. We liked the tour experience at Philae temple and Nubian village the most.

          Not as good as expected
          Had a 7 night cruise on the Hapi 5 fron 6th December. Boat was very tired and needs updating. This is not 5 star as stated but more a 2 star. The bathrooms were not finished off ie grouting looked like a 2 year old had done it and there was mould everywhere. Needs more attention to proper cleaning. Diesel fumes when sunbathing on deck. 2 of the Restaurant staff were over familiar and this was quite off putting. Reception staff were arrogant. Tried to pay bill 4 times only to be told they had "already cashed up" - weren't ready - come back later - too late !! The night receptionist called AMR was the only pleasant one. All staff were male!! The food was sufficient and plenty of variety. The guide called Mohammed was excellent. As a solo traveller I felt safe with him when we went out on our tours. If you want a Nile cruise then pay the extra and choose a much better boat.

          Fantastic tour back in time, a great experience!
          I had a fantastic time on this cruise, I was a bit apprehensive having booked it online. The boat was of a good standard and the crew were friendly and provided great service. I thought the quality of the food was excellent with plenty of variety. The tours were as described in the itinerary. I had my own guide, Ahmed Kassem, for the duration of the trip who had an excellent knowledge of the sites and the history. After the tours we discussed the history and culture of Egypt on the boat, answering any questions I had. All together I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it, a great experience!

          Good tour worth doing
          I believe this is worth doing. The tombs are different to what we see in the valley of the kings which is nice to experience. Our guide Shereen was excellent once again and driver Boji was excellent. The knowledge is really helpful and Shereen is very honest.

          Another great day
          We took this tour with Samir as our guide. It was our third day in Luxor with him and he was superb as always. He was helpful when we had questions about where to buy items that we wanted and wonderful about letting us know all the information we needed to and answering any questions that we had. When you go to the valley of the queens we thought it was well worth it for the extra ticket to go see Nefertari‘s tomb. The colors were beautiful and and we really enjoyed seeing it. The snippets of every day life visible in the artisans tombs were fascinating. We left straight from this tour to be dropped off at the airport to fly back to Cairo and it was a wonderful visit.

          Fantastic stay on Alhambra
          I just spent three lovely days on the Alhambra Cruise the room was much larger than other cruises and the beds were very good, the health and exercise centre is most wonderful and the masseuse is outstanding the staff was very aware , professional and responsive to the needs of our group one member being handicapped the elevator was a great than also three meals a day is a lot of food but we found it to be very a good variety and quite healthy especially the salad bar the time for me and my group of 10 ladies was very enjoyable .

          Great Day on the West Bank
          This was our 2nd of 3 tours booked with EMO Tours Egypt, and it did not disappoint. Most people go to Luxor and see the Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple and Temple of Hatshepsut but do not opt to visit the lesser known Valley of the Queens, Artisans and Habu Temples included in this tour, which I think is a mistake. Our guide Angie was very informative during our tour and even provided us with drinks and snacks before we started our tour even though it wasn’t included in our pricing. We started at the Valley of the Queens (built for the Queens and children of the Kings), which was beyond beautiful. The colors inside these tombs were unmatched to those at the Valley of the Kings. Here you are able to go into three tombs included in the price and can enter Neferari’s Tomb for an additional ticket purchase. We opted to not see this tomb after many of our guides said the price point (near $100 US) wasn’t worth seeing what you see in each of the other tombs onsite. After Valley of the Queens, we moved onto the Valley of the Artisans, or workers, who helped dig the tombs for the Kings and Queens. Again, the colors and art inside these tombs was amazing and shouldn’t be missed. Final stop was at Habu Temple which was one of the best preserved and colorful of all the temples we had seen. Here the hieroglyphs were carved so deep into the rock, you could stick your entire hand inside. If you are in Luxor, I definitely recommend taking this tour and seeing the not as popular places.

        The Nile Cruise boat charged £90 - far too much..

        You arrive at the back of Karnak where you stand for 20 minutes being told the story of the Pharohs by Dame Judy Dench. The light show is various columns being lit by lights showing various figures. You then walk for about 10 minutes to a lake where you are seated and look across the lake to some more columns being lit with figures on while various actors carry on with the story. My sister can remember watching same show over 30 years ago. In this day and age with lasers etc., this could be brought up to the 21st century.

        There is a lot of walking on uneven ground and steps so if you have mobility issues please take this into account, as there were quite a few people having difficulty keeping up.

        A few years ago I visited Philae at night with Richard Burton's voice booming across the temple, which I preferred.

        Unfortunately, it was a light show with some historical content and images that were projected onto the monument or wall.

        Duration 1 hour

        The guide had to ask for the way back himself

        We booked this for when we docked in Luxor. It was simple pick up and drop off. Guide was thorough and even waited for us to finish dinner, when we were running late.

        Failed experience with this show which must be more than 30 years old…. No animation, loudspeakers blaring and stones that light up and go out. No interest
