Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Sakkara and Memphis - Private Full Day Tour with Emo Tours Egypt
We pre-booked our full day tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Sakkara and Memphis and promptly received clear communication from Joseph the tour operator at Emo Tours regarding confirmation of booking.
Our personal guide Mamdouh who spoke excellent English, arrived on time as arranged in our Hotel lobby. He spent a few minutes outlining the day and asking if we were interested in the camel ride at the pyramids or purchasing souvenirs as he needed to know how we wished to deal with the vendors.
The tour was in a private car which was very clean and well maintained (unlike the majority of vehicles in Cairo!). On the back seat there was a “goody bag” of water, fizzy drink sweet and savoury snacks - a nice touch.
We did not feel pressured or rushed during our 8hr trip and were always consulted regarding the order of the itinerary. We took Mamdouh’s advice to visit the pyramids first due to close location of our hotel (The Meridien Pyramids).
We were really pleased with all aspects of our tour and felt that we were being shown the sites by friends. The knowledge of the guide was vast and relevant and our questions were answered eagerly. We came away with heads full of facts both about ancient Egypt and modern day and the included Egyptian lunch was delicious.
We felt very safe in the company of our guide who helped to fend off the sometimes overzealous vendors. Indeed our driver Wallid did an admirable job providing a safe and comfortable ride throughout the journey.
We came away with some lovely memories of our day and have some fantastic photos of us both thanks to Mamdouh’s role as photographer!
Regarding any future visitors to Cairo, we have no hesitation in recommending Emo Tours Egypt and our particular guide Mamdouh and driver Wallid both who were very professional and polite. We would like to wish them both well for the future.
We found this personal tour to be very good value for money especially compared to prices offered by our local representative Bright Sky.
