Our three days spent in Cairo was full of fun and laughter as well as being informative thanks to our guide Osama. From day one our schedule was planned from being greeted at our hotel & driven around in an air-conditioned car (such a relief from the heat outside) with our own driver, Wally. Lunch was all inclusive as well as any stops or sight seeing we threw in at the last minute.

Our guide was exceptional in both his knowledge of Cairo's history and his perfect English. We were lucky enough to have planned our trip during one of the religious holidays and see some of the festivities take place around us which was explained to us by our guide. The felucca boat ride on the Nile river at the end of day two was not planed but our guide organized this saying, 'Its all apart of the service'.

Emo Tours really goes above and beyond expectations!

Our tour guide in Cairo was professional and informative. He ensured our safety and comfort through-out the day. He helped us to understand and enjoy the history of Cairo. He also offered tips on how best to deal with the locals. Our guide offered to take photographs of the two of us. We had successfully seen the statue of ramses 2nd steps pyramid the pyramids of Giza, the sphinx we completed our day by around 4pm ‘ish’ our day included lunch at a restaurant which was very ‘nice’.
Our day in Luxor started at 7am by lunch time we had successfully seen the colossi of memnon, followed by Hatsheput Temple and finally the Valley of the Kings. All of which were amazing. Our tour guide was extremely professional and informative. He was able to answer questions to help us better understand the history of the monuments. Again he ensured both our safety and comfort through the day.
We would definitely recommend EmoTours to our friends and family

Experience overall was very good... It was very easy for us to book ( we had only 1 day) and change the schedule .The guys were very punctual and we felt like we did not even waste a single minute in the day..We started the day with pyramids, then other places like museum,citadel,shopping etc...Also had lunch at a pretty good place (included in package)..After that we went to night cruise The vehicle was good and so was the guide !!The only downside though not related to emo tours was the shopping experience.It was very difficult to know if some of the place was government or not.... We went for carpets and i could bargain from 4000 EGP to 1000 EGP....Also, the papyrus paintings were found to be too expensive (good one for 1500 EGP - 5000EGP).....Apart from this we had a great time with emo tours and i would recommend a day tour with them....

Overall tour cost per person - 55 $ for cruise + 70 $ for day tour + entry to pyramids extra + lunch and snacks included..

All in all i would like to thank Osama(guide) and Joseph for making my trip to Cairo a memorable one....

We had only one day in cairo before going to Sharm El Sheikh and contacted EMO tours to help us organise the trip.
having two teenager daughters, I was a bit concerned about hassles and harassment that could potentially ruin our day.
Initially we planned to visit the Pyramids and the Museum only.
Joseph suggested the Khan El Khalili bazar and we agreed to try and fit it in.
We were greeted at the airport by Mohammed, a very friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating tour guide.
We visited everything we planned to see, went to the bazar and went back to the airport with plenty of time to catch our plane. We could even had fit a feluca trip into our day, but decided against it because we were very tired.
Mohammed was sensible to listen to our requests, give us a wide range of options and craft the day perfectly, allowing us olenty of time to see whatever we wanted, at our own pace. We did not feel rushed or pushed in any moment and we also felt we had flexibility to change our plans at any given moment. The day was organised for us, with our needs and wishes in mind.
Mohammed was very friendly and caring towards our family and we are very grateful for it.

Our driver was also called Mohammed. He was reliable and friendly too - and although he did not interact much with us, we knew he was there, in case we needed anything. We left our bags, suitcases and wallets in the car when visiting the sites and we knew they would be safe.

All in all, it was a great experience!
Thank you Joseph, Mohammed and Mohammed!

Wanting to see the main sites of Cairo and Luxor within a short time frame (3days) would prove to be difficult. A few organised tour companies were contacted but Joseph from Emo Tours was the first to answer my questions promptly via email. He was very honest on costs and made sure it was tailor made specifically to what we wanted. He kindly even booked internal flights, all at a reasonable price.

After a 2 hour flight delay, my cousin and I finally arrived to the busy Cairo Airport at almost 9pm. We were kindly met by Mahmood who escorted us to a waiting car and was met accordingly by the driver within a minute. Mahmood was very friendly and explained all about the itinerary, any concerns and participated in general talk, as we made our way through the very busy and crazy roads of Cairo, to our hotel. As airline food is never enough, (or tasty) we asked where we could get something to eat. He offered for us to come with him to get something to eat. After settling into our hotel we ventured the streets of Giza and went to a cafe with Mahmood and his friends. This was such a wonderful experience, sampling the local cuisine and feeling like one of the locals. This was the real Egypt I wanted to experience. It was like hanging out with old friends and engaging in friendly talk and laughter.

The following EARLY morning we were promptly met by our tour guide for the day Mohamed and the driver for the start of our tour. As this was indeed a very early start we did not have enough time to have breakfast or even a drink to set us up for the day but an early start was important to fit in with the busy schedule ahead. As we meandered through the rush hour traffic of Cairo, the Pyramids of Giza became visible through the smoggy air. We finally stopped at the entrance gates and Mohamed kindly bought bottles of water and chocolate biscuits. This was a nice touch. Nothing can prepare you for how awe striking the pyramids are, and Mohamed’s extensive knowledge certainly painted the picture of how this structure was made all those years ago. The Pyramids are not complete without the touristy yet obligatory camel ride through the desert and this is a must (although the mood might be sabotaged by the guy on the camel that will sell you bottles of coke out of nowhere – funny) One tourist tip, be prepared for the vendors that try every trick in the book to sell you something. Always have a firm stance and just be prepared to walk away if you are not interested. Some can be friendly but others can be overly forceful. Unfortunately this cannot be helped in Egypt but this should not put you off. Golden rule – NOTHING IS FOR FREE. Also saw the famous Sphinx which looks smaller in person than on the postcard. We then proceeded to a shop selling Egyptian papyrus art and then off to a textile shop where we bought a few must have I love Egypt Tshirts. Next stop was Coptic Cairo (Old town) this was like being transported through time. The highlight for me was going into the Abu Serga Church. Although understated there is an aura about the place. I was later told by Mohamed that this was the spot where Joseph, Mary and Jesus rested at the end of their journey in Egypt. After an over indulging buffet lunch, we headed to the Mohamed Ali Mosque (Citadel of Saladin) dating back to the 12th century. This mosque was spectacular echoed with the stunning views of the whole of Cairo as a backdrop. This was my first insight into the Muslim religion. Mohamed gave us a brief but interesting insight into the history of Islam. Again very informative and answered any questions sincerely. Next stop was the Egyptian Museum. Never have I seen so many spectacular artefacts and statues that became almost so saturated to the point that they all started to look the same. Highlights included the treasures of Tutankhamun especially the beautiful gold death mask. One tip is to visit the Mummies room. You’ll have to pay the steep 100 EGP to see the one room but is definitely worth it. Just seeing Ramesses II made me awestruck on how effective the mummification process was and how I was face to face with someone reigned from 1279 BC – 1213 BC. After the museum we headed back to the hotel to unwind and walk around the streets of Giza. (well 10 minutes in one direction before heading back) Before dinner we once again met Mahmood and driver and visited the sound and light show at the Great Pyramids. This was amazing to see the pyramids lit up by night. The show is cheesy but does try to get its point across. After so much to take in one day I don’t think my brain fully digested everything learnt in the afternoon and my brain began to drift away. I was brought back to earth when I heard the word FOOD and we went to a seafood restaurant in the evening. A good recommendation from Mahmood once again. Tomorrow’s wakeup call 3.30am (OUCH!!)

An early 4.45am flight to from Cairo to Luxor was uneventful but the breakfast box by the hotel made sure we would not be hungry for the next week. Upon arrival at Luxor we were met by our tour guide who whisked us off to our first stop Karnak Temple. Luxor is stepped in history and is really one big outdoor museum. It is steeped in so much history is exceeded my expectations. The landscape is a complete contrast to Cairo (rubble and desert) as there was many trees and fields of wheat, yet the tour guide told us it rained 4 years ago. This justified the importance of the River Nile.
Our guide (forgot his name...sorry) again was rich in knowledge and a friendly guy. Karnak temple is just simply amazing and huge. Check out the size of the pillars. As the heat began to steadily increase we moved to our next stop, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Understanding the history of Hathepsut from our guide defiantly painted the picture of what we were about to see. This temple is set in the middle of the desert protruding from the side of a mountain and from a distance almost looks like it was built last week. Next stop was the Valley of the Kings before stopping at the Colossal of Memnon. These are two gigantic sitting statues that represent Amenophis III facing the Nile. At the Valley of the Kings It was interesting to see the impressive artwork on entering the tombs but as all treasures had been ransacked all those years ago, it kind of lost its appeal. Once you saw one tomb you kind of seem them all. After almost passing out with heat exhaustion (my fault for not bringing a hat) we went back to the hotel with impressive balcony views over the Nile to catch a breather. After lunch & dinner we made a final stop to Luxor Temple where it was beautiful to see this place illuminated at night. It was then back to the hotel for another early wakeup call (and the obligatory breakfast box) for an early flight to Sharm El Sheikh for 6 days of Red Sea diving.

Thank you Joseph and your brilliant team for making the holiday full of memories. I continually felt safe and the customer service was like being treated as part of a family rather than another customer. Emo Tours will give professionalism a whole new meaning. Don’t be put off travelling to Egypt after the revolution. It is safe and has certainly been blown out of proportion. Use Emo Tours and it will be satisfaction guaranteed -Miaa – Miaa -
