        This is definitely a to-do tour if you enjoy religious history
        I had a great time on this tour mainly because Essam was a great guide. He always made sure I was okay and was having a good time. Temed (driver) was also great and made me feel safe on the road. Essam was very informative telling me about the history of the mosques and churches. He also gave me little gifts throughout the tour. LUNCH This is a buffet covered by the tour price, but you can pay extra for drinks. Assuming you go to the same restaurant I went to, I highly recommend the green soup (I forgot the name) as that was extremely tasty MARKET The tour ended at Khan el-Khalili where there are some old mosques. Note that you will get a lot of market stall-holders trying to get you in their shop, but it’s typical of a market. I ended up buying perfume oils and Essam helped me negotiate the prices :) If you have time, I do recommend using this opportunity to do your shopping with your tour guide (assuming they don’t mind and are comfortable being your negotiator). I also recommend wearing your sunglasses (even if the sun isn't shining) so you can look at things without the stall-holders noticing. Overall, this is definitely a to-do tour if you enjoy religious history. N.B. expect to take off your shoes every time you enter a mosque and cover your hair and shoulders (if you are a lady). I wore a t-shirt but had my shawl with me that I put on each time.

        Awesome drive from Cairo to Hughada
        Wonderful professional ride from Cairo to Hurghada! My driver, Mohammad, was wonderful! A great driver and person, we had wonderful conversation throughout the 6 hour transit, and, he brought plenty of water for me too, and had a great radio playlist too! We're both Bob Marley fans! One love and thanks always for a safe trip!

        Filthy dirty awful
        This is the most disgustingly filthy thing I have ever had the displeasure of needing to be in. No running water, no soap, no towels. The toilets had no running water so they just filled with toilet paper. The rooms were freezing with no heat, we slept in our clothes and coats. The overhead light was broken so it stayed on all night. Breakfast was bread 5 kinds of bread, 1 tiny cup of coffee and if you wanted a second cup there was an extra charge. This is not a fun adventure, it is so filthy you will want to soak in a vat of disinfectant.

        Dirty, dirty, dirty
        Do not travel on the night sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan. It is disgustingly dirty. Toilets awash with urine, windows filthy, carpet in ribbons, etc. The attendant did his best, but this service is awful.

        Aswan to Cairo Train (87). If you’re thinking of a nice trip, think again
        The overnight train from Aswan through Luxor to Giza and Cairo. We left Luxor on time. The dinner meal was barely edible. The sleeper cabins (first class) are old and dirty. The bathroom makes you sick. I’d recommend flying if possible as it’s cheaper after they increased fares for foreigners in late 2022 by 350%. They should spend some of this on renovating the carriages and employing cleaning staff before and during the journey.

        Filthy and a bit of a rip off!
        The train is filthy and definitely not worth $168. The guard was nice and helpful, but that is where my positive comments finish. I would not take this again and wish I hadn't taken it in the first please. Fly if you can.

        If you don’t want want to buy plane tickets, get this transfer from Cairo to the Red Sea
        We took this transfer from Cairo to Hurghada because we are a family of four and buying plane tickets were not in our plans, the driver even though that couldn’t speak English he was very patience and waited for us in the hotel lobby for our transfer, we were comfortable he even offer us water and stop for 20 mins so we can buy snacks or eat something. I really appreciate that this service was available and the price was reasonable.

        Fantastic experience!
        The whole experience was fantastic! Very well organized, punctual, and smooth. I was picked up from my hotel by Walid Elshaer who was incredibly nice, kind, helpful, and friendly. He kept me well entertained before my train arrived. In Luxor, my guide was Hisham and he’s absolutely amazing! I highly recommend him. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, gives lots of fascinating historical facts, details, and answers any questions. He’s also very sweet and ready to customize details of your tour depending on your preferences such as give more time and attention to in-depth historical information, give you more/less time to explore by yourself, help you with photos, tweak the time when you want to eat lunch, add extra activities, etc. It’s a fantastic tour and the spectacular sights themselves are must-see for anyone visiting Egypt. Highly recommend.

        I had a wonderful time in Cairo because of Emo Tours. On my first day , brother Rahman took me to the famous Nile Cruise, where I had an absolute blast, Rahman is an absolute gem of a person and we had alot of fun. The next day was my full day tour to Giza Pyramids & Egyptian Museum & the Citadel, my guid Abdul Wahid was absolutely fantastic, he's a very knowledgeable, humble guy who actually wants the tourists to have an amazing experience (I'm truly thankful to him as he made my day an absolute eventful one). A very big shout out to Mr. Waheed (The driver of the car on my full day tour), an absolute delight of a person. All in all I highly highly highly recommend Emo Tours to everyone who's in Cairo. Keep up the amazing work guys, I'll definitely see you guys very soon :)

        Ahmed Hamed and Esam - highly recommended
        Full credits to Ahmed Hamed and Esam for two days of awesome tours. Did a day trip to Al Alamein and another day at the Citadel, Pyramids, and the Sphinx. Very professional service from the duo, flexible pickup and drop offs, very informative tours, allowance for last minute deviations, and very helpful. The tour of the coptic Centre’s were an eye opener as well as the synagogue but thoroughly enjoyed the citadel. Visited the German, Italian, and Commonwealth memorials as well as the museum, they were very helpful in gaining access to the sites even as they were closed. Highly recommend the pair for anyone in need of a tour of Cairo, it’s major sites as well as Al Alamein.

        Lovely and safe
        Ola our guide is fluent in three languages Arabic , Russian and English . She was very patient from the getgo. We weren’t able to make at our start time due to our kids not waking up in time but she and her driver were very understanding . She is very knowledgeable in Egyptian history. Gave us a very good tour we ended up learning a lot . We felt at ease with her . We did do some side shopping (never pressed to buy anything we didn’t want ) . We wanted some scarfs and she at the end took us there . Our driver Farag was well dressed (suited )and extremely professional. Strongly recommend Ola and Farag. The van was spacious and comfortable .

        Really disappointing: late, uninformed, and more “aimlessly following” than actual tour guide
        To start, they arrived late. I got a message at start time they would be 20 minutes late due to traffic. Traffic is a very accepted issue in Cairo, how did they not plan for this? The tour guide, Sayed, also continuously complained about the heat all day long. It was extremely annoying. If he wasn’t prepared for 90 degrees, he should not be an Egypt tour guide in the summer. It was hot, but I was completely fine. The Islamic Cairo portion of the tour was fine. He gave me base level information, not a ton of details, and was fixated with telling me “there are a lot of details in the architecture). I didn’t learn much but felt we covered it well. I was frustrated when he saw his buddy at the second stop and wanted me to stop and listen to a Quran reading (clearly for a tip for the guy), which I refused. Probably the worst tour I’ve ever had for Khan El-khalili and Coptic Cairo. For Coptic cairo, he gave me ZERO information. To say he wasn’t knowledgeable might be a compliment. He pointed out none of the very important fixtures or the sites including the viewing area of the hanging church, the Virgin Mary painting, the dark pillar, etc…luckily I had read about them in advance. Quite frankly; this was a bad tour. It got worse with Khan El Khalili. Our first stop was before Coptic Cairo, he walked me down one, wide street, with very few shops, telling me it’s better to see this part and not be busy. I told him that was absolutely not the experience I wanted at a busy bazaar and the point was to see the hustle and bustle there. He said we could come back later. We did, I almost wish we didn’t. I followed him around, through 3 dead ends, once he circled the same block twice, it was as if he had never been there before. I asked about the spices, he couldn’t explain them to me. Honestly, this tour was awful and Sayed was one of the worst tour guides I have ever had.

      I expected something much more than the few seconds I was given explaining the process of manufacturing. The main interest was to sell me Papyrus paintings. They were good to look at but I didn't want to shell out good money on buying.
