Best tour if you want to dig deeper in the islamic side of Cairo
We specifically requested Mahmoud al Wakeel to be our guide (he was also our guide for the Coptic Cairo, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar day tour and we were impressed by him). I cannot state enough the good knowledge he has and how helpful and respectful he is. His stories are so funny and interesting.

Ahmed Zaki from Emo Tours guided us for a 5 hour Islamic Cairo tour. From beginning to end, the process has been hassle free. He called me the day before to organize our hotel pick up and we agreed on everything. Ahmed has been a tour guide for 20 years, so he knows a lot about every site and you can tell how passionate he is. Ahmed was friendly everywhere to all people, security, driver etc, which made it pleasant and easy for us, he also invited us to an amazing falafel sandwich. We booked an english tour and Ahmed speaks the language.

Islamic Cairo should not be missed
Essam was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide to the historic mosques in Cairo and to Islamic al Moezz Street. His enjoyment in sharing his knowledge of the mosques we visited and the history of Islam in Cairo was contagious. I highly recommend him as a guide - and kudos to our driver who navigated the crazy Cairo traffic.

We booked the photography tour of Islamic Cairo for 8 Dec 2019. Ahmed was our guide who met us promptly at our hotel. We confirmed the locations we wanted to see with Ahmed, and were off to begin our adventure. Driving in Cairo is an adventure, so the hotel pick-up and drop-off were stress free.

Ahmed was knowledgable, professional and he pointed us toward wonderful, unique photo locations. We covered the alabaster mosque, the Citadel and the Khan el-Khalili bazaar. All were beautiful, must-see sights! Ahmed was a warm and welcoming part of our Egypt trip, and we are most appreciative.

Amazing Experience
Nov 2019
I booked this trip from the Viator website. Mahmoud Ismail was our tour guide. He picked us from the hotel and took us to the car with the driver. Snacks such as bottled water, coke, and sweets were provided in the car already. We first went to the Sala el din citadel, then 2 other mosques including sultan hassan, the al-azhar mosque, and el hussein mosque. Our tour guide Mahmoud Ismail was amazing, he was a story teller explaining the history of every mosque. We booked this on a Friday, so since I am a Muslim and so was the tour guide, we both prayed Jummah together in the Sultan Hassan Mosque. This tour was by far my favorite one at Cairo and I can recommend this to anyone. Thank you Mahmoud!

Amazing and inspirational day!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Today's adventure really emphasized how amazing our tour guide Ola and driver Said are and how far they went out of their way to help strangers. We booked the Islamic tour of Cairo which included visiting some of the oldest and most beautiful mosques in the world.

The tour began with the visit to the Citadel of Cairo and the Alabaster Mosque. After finishing the tour, we were returning to meet Said when we witnessed a kitten being struck by a car. As animal lovers we asked if Ola and Said could help us find emergency veterinary services. Ola was kind enough to call a number of places before deciding that we will have the best chances at the local veterinary school. Said and Ola took us to the school and helped translate with the vet who indicated that miraculously the 4 week old kitten had no broken bones and sustained only minor injuries. He only needed a couple of medications. Said patiently took us to a number of pharmacies to find the right medication.

At this point my husband and I figured the tour must be over as we spent the majority of the day dealing with the kitten; however, Ola and Said were willing to still take us to all the places that were part of the tour. Ola is an amazing well of information and we learned a ton about Egyptian history and its cultural and spiritual influences. It was an amazing, moving and inspirational tour. We are eternally grateful to Ola and Said for making our time in Egypt so wonderful and memorable and for really going above and beyond to take care of us. We are in awe of Egyptian hospitality. Booking another tour with Emo tours for tomorrow because we wouldn't even consider anyone else.
