    Haisam was absolutely fantastic! Extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and really worked hard to make sure we had a superior experience. He also went out of his way to make sure we could take care of a few personal errands, like going to a store for some American food for my child with food sensitivities. He also let us adjust the schedule to make sure we got the most out of our experience. 12/10 would absolutely recommend! And I can’t forget our driver, he handled the Cairo streets so expertly, I forgot we were even on a tour bus.

    From start to finish we had the best experience. Our guide Nour Nagy reached out to us the day before our tour and confirmed everything with us. The day of the tour we got picked up at our hotel and went straight to the pyramids which was amazing. Having a guide to show you around and deal with the language barrier gave us the freedom to just enjoy the sights and take photos. Our guide Nour was the best, she knew all the angles for the pyramids and sphinx to get the funniest and best photos. She was also very patient with us and never rushed us to go to the next location, she never mentioned a time frame or a schedule, only that we take our time and enjoy ourselves.
    Our driver Mohamed was always right there as soon as we were ready so we never had to wait in the sun and we got dropped off at the front of every place we went to!
    We also went to the museum and got a guided tour there by Nour in which she answered all of our questions and even took us around the Bazar and made sure we were safe and helped us translate for when we wanted to get something. I would highly recommend both Nour and Mohamed to anyone looking for this tour. If we do any other I’ll be requesting Nour as I know she will go out of her way to give us the best experience. Thank you again for an amazing time!!!!

    We had a wonderful time during our trip to the Faiyum Oasis! It's a once in a lifetime experience coming from the United States. Our guide Fares was amazing. He gave us a bunch of history about Cairo during our long drive to the desert, took wonderful photos of the experience, was fun to conversate with, and answered all of our questions. The entire day was great!

    This experience was beautiful.. Egypt, I fell in love with Egypt because of this trip. I was able to enjoy seeing the sunset and the full moon rising at the same time. The food was always plentiful. The long car ride to Siwa and back to Cairo was not bad. We saw camels and Beduoins plus there were breaks at clean gas stations along the way. My guide and driver were both named Ahmed. The Siwa guide Ahkbar was awesome. The way Ahkbar drove that Range Rover through the Great Sand Sea is still breath taking. Sand boarding was so much fun. The thought of spending the night under the stars in the middle of the frickin desert still blows my mind. I cant believe I was able to do this! The tour through Siwa by the manager of the Siwa Museum and visiting the Mountain of the Dead was remarkable. The visit to the salt lakes was incredible. For a couple years I experienced swelling in my lower legs & feet, especially when traveling. After the salt lakes, I have not had anymore problems. Amazing!! Last and MOST IMPORTANT--I always felt safe and I was treated with respect. Thank you Ahmed-guide for gentle reminders to help keep us on time & helping capture this magnificent moment in my life. Thank you Ahmed-driver for safely getting us to and from our destination.

    If you are considering this booking, you should absolutely do it! Ahmed Elsayed was our guide and he was absolutely amazing. We always felt safe, he made sure we had water to drink. He has amazing knowledge to share. He also stopped for lots of pictures and even told us how to pose so we got some amazing shots we never would have thought of.

    It’s only day one and we have already climbed up a pyramid, rode a camel and drove an ATV through the desert. To say I am impressed is an understatement! This is a must do tour.

    Fantastic ! Would not want to miss this great experience. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the views so much, would recommend it. Very nice in the 4x4 driving in the desert and off-road with the nice drivers. Which could also cook good for us.
    Sleeping under the stars - amazing

    We started the day at 6.00am. Our guide was Nader and Driver was Ali. We made good progress in the morning with the 4 hour drive one way to the Iasis. Both are young guys with a great sense of humor and gave us appropriate breaks for water and the restroom.

    Once we got there, Ali took a break and Ahmed took us out in his 4x4 accompanied with Nader. Before going out, we relaxed with some of the best tea I have ever had. If you haven't had it, it's a must! Black tea with a very special preparation process for a week to give it a natural sugary, rose like taste. We stretched our legs and headed into the desert. Ahmed played some great tunes from local artists from his village. All of us were clapping while he was singing. It was a nice way to get us upbeat and excited for the visit ahead 😄

    We made several stops along the way with Nader examining the history of the formations and helping us take group pictures. The desert is beautiful and we have a lot of excellent photos for our memories. There are several different formations that we took photos with. Qe stopped for some more special tea with a brief camp in the middle of the desert. We were done at about 4.30pm and came back to a local restraunt for dinner. This was again, some fo the best food we had around Jeremy. Great choices. We are vegetarian which made it equally impressive with the selection. After a long day, we set back with Nader and Ali back to our hotel in Giza. Made it back home tired but happy with another 4 hour drive.

    It was a wonderful experience and all 3 of these guys made it a great experience. Definitely recommend Emo tours and this tour in particular.
    We had a blast!

    Alaa and his team are excellent hosts. Our driver and guide Waleed and his apprentice Amr were brilliant. From picking us up from the Cairo hotel to the lunch at their farmhouse, to the super amazing black and white desert and then back to Cairo, everything was faultless. We were particularly impressed by Waleed and Amr! they kept us all well fed and informed. Great conversations late into the night. Loved their honesty, openness and positivity. Couldn't have asked for more.
    If you're planning to visit Egypt, this tour is a must! Being able to see the milky way while camping is just another experience. The white desert itself looks like an alien landscape.
    I can wholeheartedly recommend using this company.

    Whalid was my tour guide with Emo travel #1 on Trip advisor for a reason.
    They arrived on time in a late model air conditioned car.
    I was able to see the neighborhoods of Giza up close and personal. SO MUCH FUN
    Walid keep my camera and got great action shots. Best part was bonding over music and discovering common ideologies. A mutually respectful tone and vibes
    Did I mention fun? Racing around the desert with pyramids in the background . I’ll never for it

    My husband and I ended up having an extra day in Cairo, so we booked a last minute 2 hour ATV experience with EMO Tours and it was the absolute BEST way to end our vacation in Egypt. They picked us up from our hotel in a clean, beautiful car and drove us to the location where we picked up our four wheelers. The first location we drove to gave us a breathtaking view of Cairo and a whole new perspective of the pyramids away from the busyness of the tourist area. Our guide took some beautiful pictures of us and when above and beyond to make sure sure we had an amazing and unforgettable time. If you have the opportunity to take an ATV ride with Emo Tours - DO IT! You will not regret it!

    Egypt has been one of my dream trips, so going to the Red Sea was a MUST!

    OK lets get into it: I met our tour guide (HAZEM) the night before, we booked the "VIP night show" in Giza ( definitely a good way to start your trip, look for my review on that ) He was soo accomadating that in conversation that night about our trip we noticed that 4/5 of our activities were thur his company. His English is perfect, no language barriers or apps to get points across. The night she went so well we legit asked for him personally the NEXT DAY!

    The next day we had the Red Sea set up. Hazem was there early, we were a couple minutes late and he was patiently waiting. The drive was 1hr and 40mins, we started our ride with some fresh sugar cane Egyptian juice, compliments of Hazem. He gave us information along the ride of the cities we were driving thur. Once we arrived to the resort he had everything on LOCK took us 5 mins to get to our rooms (NO JOKE), He went and inspected the room to make sure everything was to "par". We changed and met in the lobby.

    Hazem had our umbrella & beach chairs reserved and waiting for us upon arrival, he offered the BEST spots along the beach for our pictures and took most of them for us! They were so good my boyfriend lost his job to be my photographer lol ! we rested played some card games I brought along and enjoyed some cocktails on the beach.

    For lunch, again Hazem was able to get us to the dining room before any lines. The food there was amazing !!! I was nervous to try certain things (due to certain allergies) but with Hazem's help explaining I ate everything, we even had seconds helpings :)

    After lunch we relaxed at the beach until our massages in the later afternoon.
    massages were ok*. (Ladies - *pls pls pls advise your Bf's and/or Husbands to let the massage girl know they are taken not single - they tend to offer additional services! SMH)

    We were returned to our hotel as safely as we arrived!!

    This day was the BEST only because of HAZEM'S thoughtfulness and hospitality
    ask for HIM !! if he's busy wait til he is free !

    Great tour and our guide Karim was very knowledgeable about the site we went to see. He was incredibly friendly and had amazing English skills. The quad bike experience was one of a kind and definitely the highlight of our trip. The only downside of the tour was there was quite a few stops at little stores that have demonstrations which was nice but then you felt a bit awkward if you did not want to buy anything.
