Private tour Saqqara, Memphis and Great Pyramids
Very professional service. Tonsi (tour guide) and Ahmed (driver) picked us up on time from our hotel with a nice car with amenities. We started the tour in the correct direction from old to new (saqqara, menphis, great pyramids). They were very keen to make our experience as good as possible. They handled everything and they helped me tipping when I didn’t have small change. They always asked us before, if we want to additional activities, as camel ridding or papyrus, in a very polite and trustworthy way. I truly recommend this private tour with Tonsi and Ahmed.

Wonderful day - this is only way you should see the great sights around Cairo. Tonsi was an excellent guide never leaving me in doubt of my journey and sharing his extensive knowledge of Egyptian History. Ahmed was our driver and I never had to walk more than a few steps and the car was right there! Excellent job, from absolute gentlemen and professionals !

Best Trip and Tour Ever! Just ask for Mazen!!!
Sep 2021 • Family
OMG! This was the best experience my sister and I could have ever imagined. All I can say is go visit Egypt > Cairo and ask for “Mazen Maher Sammy” and be open-minded for a wonderful experience!!! Our driver “Bassam Elkhodary” was also awesome and gave us water and had little snacks for us along the way. Now back to Mazen! He is the most friendly & kind tour guide I’ve ever met and quite popular I’d say (because the locals know him which is a plus). We had no worries about security because he was very knowledgeable about the tour and was patient to let us explore all the sites. If you’re traveling solo, as a couple or a group, Emo Tours is your answer.
Thank you so much Mazen for an amazing customer service! I will be visiting again for sure with my family.

Amazing Day Tour to Pyramids
From start to finish Osama and Ahmed arrived on time, greeted us wonderfully and welcomed us with open arms. Osama was extremely knowledgeable about the history and explained everything to us in an interesting way.

Ahmed the driver almost made us feel safe and never kept us waiting. He was extremely polite.

We had a great day trip to the Pyramids and even went into the Pyramid of Dashur. It was exciting.

Thank you so much Osama and Ahmed for the amazing experience!!

I will definitely recommend the tour and Osama as your guide. ❤️❤️❤️

Great pyramids experience with Tonsi and Waheed of Emo Tours!!!
Tonsi, our guide, and waheed, our drivwr, were amazing! Tonsi showed us the pyramids and taught us a lot about Egyptian history. He also took us to places that we had requested from him like a place for papyrus papers and a place where we can find official Egyptian garments. They never made us feel uneasy and they were genuinely good people. Tonsi also takes amazing pictures!!! I highly recommend them for those who want to a tour of the pyramids.

Amazing trip thanks to Tonsi and Hamdi!
I have to say that Tonsi and Hamdi did an amazing job today with me. They were on time and the best part was that I was the only guest so it ended being a private tour. Tonsi really knows about the history of Egypt and I appreciate that he truly seems to enjoy his work something that most people do not seem to enjoy but he truly does. I was able to see how Egyptians live on a daily basis and lunch was included and food was great. I appreciate that Tonsi remained near my side at all times as there are many people trying to sell you things and hassle you. He was able to send them off and that made my experience even better because I focused on Egypt and not on people bothering me all the time. Hamdi is an amazing driver that knows well the city and finds shortcuts to get to the location quicker. Both guys made an awesome team and they are highly recommended by me 10/10. You will not regret doing your next tour with them so book them and they will take care of you as they took care of me.

Really good private tour
We booked and enjoyed a very nice private tour of Giza (Pyramids and Sphinx), Saqqara and Memphis with lunch. Everything was great. The tour guide Mahmoud could explain a lot and his English was good. There was also a good driver. The Egyptian food in the end was also really tasty.

Amazing tour to various pyramid sites with Aly
Sep 2021 • Solo
I did the private tour to Giza, Memphis, Sakkara and Dahshur. Both my guide Aly and the driver Sayd were absolutely amazing.
As a solo traveller, a private full day tour can become quite tedious if the guide isn’t very good, but Aly made the day into an absolutely incredible experience. He was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of information about everything we saw. He also made sure I had fun the whole day and was enjoying every moment. He made sure to take pictures from me with my own camera at every stop, and adapted the stops to what I wanted to do. He made sure I always had water, fruit and snacks available. On top of that, he was very nice, and we talked a lot throughout the whole day!
