    12 day Egypt tour with Nile Cruise
    Emad was a pleasure to work with planning our trip from the U. S. He responded to our questions in a very timely manner and made sure we had everything we needed.for an easy arrival, transfers to the many sights and locations etc. Everything was well planned and organized. He is very personable.and made each member of our group feel safe and cared for. He provided a variety of experiences including camel rides, cruising down the Nile, visiting pyramids and temples , carriage rides, and specialty shops and more. He provided us a wonderful experience and we highly recommend him.

    14 day Egypt tour. Cairo, Ashwan, Luxor and a Nike cruise
    Emad was recommended to us by a friend. Emad was with us for 14 days, I feel like he is part of my family. He took great care of us, making it safe and enjoyable. We did not have to worry about transportation, hotel, tours. My name tag was there upon arrival at the airport. His guy asked for my passport, my Visa was ready in minutes. Impeccable service. They handled my bag from the airport to my hotel room. The tours were on time. I highly trust and recommend tours with Life Egypt Tours.

    Hard-working tour organizer and excellent guide
    I was part of a group participating in an international sporting event in Cairo. We hired Emad to put together custom packages for us, including airport transfers, hotel bookings and various tours according to each person's desires and schedule. Emad was responsive (this is a guy who replies to email instantly, even in the middle of the night!), organized and did a great job meeting the complex needs of a group. I was so happy to be met at the airport at 1 a.m., and felt I was in great hands the whole of my first trip to Egypt. In addition to managing all our travel needs at a reasonable price, Emad was a knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. I highly recommend his services.

    Once I found out I was going to Egypt I prepared my airline ticket in advance, however since my hotel is always coordinated with my friends from the US I waited to see what was the plan. My friend Valerie found Emad and Life Egypt Tours. From the very beginning he was prompt in response to my requests and communication. He assured me I did not need to get the Visa in advance, and someone would be there to greet me. Prices were settled, he gave us each a package deal which included hotel, plus arrival and departure to airport, rides to and from venue, hotel and private touring with the group. His driver Alaa was always prompt and polite, and Emad was there himself to get us through Museum, Pyramids and Sphinx. In speaking to others who made their own arrangements our total cost was actually more reasonable and much superior. I would recommend highly this company and Emad as your guide and host in this amazing city. May I ad, never even once I was concerned about my well being in Cairo. I was happy to be greeted with warmth and kindness wherever I went. I look forward to returning to Egypt and I would count on his services again. Thank you Emad.

    Emad is wonderful, knowledgeable and the best choice to plan an Egypt tour.
    Emad was great! The best tour planner and guide we have ever had. He planned our 11 day Egypt tours exactly as we wanted. He hired good people for drivers and other tour guides for the different areas we were visiting. He even took the time to help us arrange for funds ( as a different tour we had planned from another company fell through). I don’t usually write reviews, however Emad made this trip so wonderful. He even spent an extra day with us and called us daily to be sure everything was taken care of. He made sure the guides had our names and pictures so they knew who we were. He planned everything for us to include the pyramids, the Nile cruise and the hotels and resorts stay. A driver and guide was always waiting for us. If you want some advice from someone who travels a lot, contact Emad. Egypt is beautiful and safe for travels and if you want the best experience,Emad should be your first choice for a guide and tour planner. He was patient and kind and attentive to our needs.

    I had a full day tour with my guide Manar Nabil and our driver Mostafa (I had to ask for her last name because apparently there are two tour guides named Manar haha) and they were both wonderful. Manar was so sweet, and was very informative and clear. She answered all my questions and was there to give me history and help me when needed, but also gave me space to enjoy my time as well. I tend to be a bit introverted so sometimes having my alone time to just absorb is nice, and she definitely gave me that but while also being a really attentive guide. I really enjoyed our time together and I definitely recommend taking this tour!

    Emad is so knowledgeable and a certified tour guide. He shared his knowledge at a comfortable pace that allowed us to enjoy the historic sites and ask questions. Emad paced our day to include the sites we chose. We also visited a papyrus facility to learn how it was made, a store that had Egyptian cottons and a a small glass blowing/ essential oil business. We also discussed Egyptian history, culture and the tourism industry. We appreciated that he spoke good English which helped us understand the rich details of the sites we visited Emad gave us good advice about how to avoid the many aggressive vendors at the sites. Emad has an excellent partner in our driver who kept our van cool and readily available to move between sites.

    First-class operation!
    Mr. Emad was excellent from greeting us at the airport, pyramids.... you name it. I rarely write reviews, however, Emad made my whole Egypt experience awesome. My wife and I were traveling in the region for the first time. Emad met us in the airport, grabbed our bags and whisked us through obtaining our visa. He KNOWS Egyptian history very very well, comfortable minivan, professional services. He was a blessing to us - thanks Emad.

    Great conversation!
    We were thrilled with our tour with Emad to visit Coptic and Islamic Cairo. We did not feel rushed. Emad not only provided us with the history of the sites and the area, but we also enjoyed having great conversation with him. He is a gem of a tour guide and we feel lucky to have spent time with him.

    Almost a 5/5 if it wasnt for the camel ride and Nile cruise.
    The good: Punctual Knowledgeable Interactive It was the best tour i had in Cairo, the were extremely punctual, they arrived before the scheduled time (8am), from ere Ahmed and Emad drove me around to the destinations where Ahmed began to give me interesting facts about the ruins and in between we had some Egyptian food which was delicious as well as a glass of sugar cane juice. they took me to gift shops where i was able to purchase some pictures, jewelery and perfume. He was interactive and conversed with me the whole trip. at the end he recommended a cruise, for $50 usd, that took place in the Nile which I decided to go to itsl was very calm and the food was good. It did not include the drink(soda) which I was told it included. The bad: The bad has more to do with the gift shops than with this tour. All the gift shops are kinda aggressive. The cruise: Ahmed told me that it included drinks (soda), food and a show. But at the end of the trip I got a bill of around 40+ Egytian pounds (~$2.5 usd) for the drink. If I knew I was going to get charged ~5X the street price I would not have gotten the Sprite. The "included" camel ride: technically it is included, however its a one-way and the destination is the middle of the the desert, I was told that it would be $10 usd to ride the camel back, or walk back, or $20 usd to ride the camel all the way to the Sphinx....I chose the $20 additional ride, it did have some nice views...but it should be specified in the description that it's one way.

    Egypt bucket list completed!
    After waiting years, I made the trip to Egypt to visit the Pyramids of Giza and the great Egyptian museum. I had planned to go with no itinerary except I did reserve a room at the Nile Ritz-Carlton. I was greeted at the airport by a tourism representative, Ahmed, who helped my to plan several days visit. My guide was Emad, who did a wonderful job of explaining the history and secrets of the ancient egyptians. We visited Saqqarah, Giza, Memphis, the great Egyptian Museum and so much more. Carpet factories, papyrus making,... the list goes on. Emad's English was great, and even the driver did an excellent job. I will make sure to contact Emad again on my next visit!

    Wonderful tour of Cairo & Luxor
    The four nights/three days tailormade travel to Cairo and Luxor arranged by Mr Emad was terrific !! We didn't face any kind of problems throughout the tour. The cab driver/s, guide/s, the hotel/airport transfers were punctual and efficient. The overall travel experience was fabulous. We strongly recommend others to book their trips through Mr Emad.
