What to expect
After your private Egyptologist guide collects you from your hotel, start the day at the Pyramids of Giza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s home not only to the three Great Pyramids but to the Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple. Your guide explains the meaning and significance of this 4,500-year-old site and answers any questions you may have. After lunch at a local restaurant, hop into your air-conditioned vehicle to explore Saqqara, the UNESCO-listed city of the dead that’s home to the Step Pyramid and the Tombs of the Nobles. Next, continue to Memphis, once the capital of Egypt, with a history dating back more than 5,000 years. The standout here is the colossal statue of Ramesses II. Wrap up the day with a transfer back to your hotel.

A must do in Cairo. Request Mazen.
Jan 2021 • Couples
Great experience with Mazen Maher and driver Waleed. Picked up promptly at our Cairo hotel and handled with care. Lots of accurate historical information and even suggestions and recommendations for restaurants and shops. The lunch was fantastic! Way better than expected (we wished we had not eaten such a large breakfast). Sites are luckily not busy due to covid. Smooth sailing and happy that they were our guides the next day as well ...

Amazing experience!
Jan 2021
We took this tour with an amazing tour guide named Sayed Hamdy and a wonderful driver, Mohammed. They were friendly, kind, helpful, full of relevant information, and knew wonderful spots for photos, food, and souvenirs.

We were picked up directly from our apartment and proceeded directly to the Giza complex (with a quick stop for breakfast in the shadow of the Pyramids). We received extensive information about the history and significance of the Great Pyramid and then proceeded inside. After a few more pictures, we went to take a camel ride around the Pyramids with Ahmed (a wonderful camel driver), with more great photo opportunities. Then we proceeded to the Sphinx and temple complex for more history, context, and photos. We made a couple of quick stops for shopping and then proceeded to a delicious lunch (price included in the booking fee, we only paid for beverages). After a delicious, filling meal, we proceeded to Sakkara, the complex featuring the Step Pyramid, an associated temple, and a funerary complex for a royal vizier, including breathtaking relief carvings, including the remains of the original, 5000-year-old paint. After this, we headed to the ancient capital of Memphis and toured a park featuring extensive ancient statues recovered from various archeological sites. After this, we made a quick stop for fresh-squeezed sugarcane juice (delicious!), and then we were returned directly to our apartment.

Throughout the day, Sayed had a tremendous amount of historical information about each site, providing information about the builders of each location, the wider context of Egyptian history at the time, and lots of engaging information about life in Egypt throughout the ages and in the present time. Mohammed was a sublime driver; we arrived at each site quickly and safely, and he was a great conversationalist as well, providing additional insight into life in Egypt. He was particularly rich in excellent suggestions for food (we followed one of his suggestions for dinner, and it was transcendental). We had an amazing time with this incredible pair, and we fully intend to request their services again as a team as we continue to explore this magical country. I cannot recommend them enough, and my wife and I have been talking about our experience non-stop since!

Memorable experience with a wonderful tour guide!
Jan 2021
Sayed Hamdy, my tour guide, and Mohammed, my driver, were both fantastic. Sayed was extremely knowledgeable about every site we went to, and you could tell he was passionate about history. He was also an excellent photographer that took numerous photos of my husband and me at each site. Mohammed was an excellent driver and safely got us to each place. Both Sayed and Mohammed were excellent conversationalists, which made for great discussions throughout the entire day. They also took us to a few local places to shop before lunch, where we could learn more about products particular to Egypt. I would absolutely recommend this tour as it was a wonderful experience and I will be booking another trip with them in the future. Since I recently moved to Cairo, they were even happy to give advice on restaurants near my home and the best foods to try. They made us feel extremely welcome, and we will absolutely be using their services again!

Giza / Sakkara / Memphis
We had such a great experience learning about Egypt’s history at these locations from Emo tour guide, Tonsi! He kept our pace with abundant information! I even took notes!
He also gave suggestions as to where to get what. He was also our personal photographer! Crazy driving in Cairo/Giza, but we felt so safe with Yosef, our driver! Truly an experience!
Tonsi and Yosef took us to Restaurant Pharous (?) for lunch and had such a great welcoming music and dance prior to a wonderful meal. We enjoyed the day so much we requested them for our tour the next day. Thanks Emo for sending them our way!

We loved this tour! We started by Saqqarah pyramids and mastabas and ended by the big Giza pyramids which is the nice order to do the tour. We had a really good lunch in a restaurant after visiting the Ramses 2 status. We did the camel tour in Giza. I recommend thid tour for sure.

Feb 2020 • Solo
I came to Egypt on business, and had basically one day to see Cairo. I went on the tour and my guide was Gerges! He is super knowledgeable and knew the right spots to see all of the pyramids, and of course, amazing spots for pictures. We spent all day touring the pyramids in Giza, Memphis and Sakkara. The lunch was amazing. Overall, this is a 5 start tour and I recommend you try it!! I’ll be back for more tours with Gerges!

Incredible, educational and well-organized: a can’t miss tour with Habib and Saeed.
Feb 2020 • Friends
I came to Cairo with six friends on the three day tour. After arriving at the airport, we quickly realized that Cairo is a very busy and hectic place. Once we found taxis, it took the guys 30 minutes to finally stop arguing and get us into a car. Eventually, we got to our hotel and anxiously awaited our tour the next day!

My first impression of Habib was that he is a kind and friendly man; but also, he was on time! As he would soon point out, things in Egypt run on “Egyptian time”; Lucky for us, Habib does not. As soon as we started our tour with him and Saeed, who is a remarkable driver, we knew we had found the right people. Habib is a virtual encyclopedia of historical information. His English is fantastic. But he is also able to talk to you about modern Egypt and how history and tourism have moulded the country to where it is today. We have had some lovely chats about many things!!!

The first day was the pyramids and like everything else, Habib and Saeed work so well as a team, and everything is on time, which is important with such a busy day. Nothing is rushed and he knows people everywhere, so you always feel like a VIP.

In addition to valuable historical insights, Habib will give you advice about where to shop for souvenirs and even bring you by a papyrus shop that can do custom hieroglyphs!! He is a truly remarkable man and being with him is like being with family. He will go the extra mile for you and his positive energy and infectious smile will make your trip the most fun.

I have enjoyed every minute of the trip to Egypt and can even say that I am now fairly comfortable with the driving... especially with Saeed at the wheel.
If you are considering a tour, go with Emo tours and Habib and Saeed... they will help make your trip a truly unforgettable experience!!!!

Good Service
The service rendered by Emo tours has been good. Would like to mention that the guide Habib and the driver Ahmed were quite good in being hospitable. We were able to cover quite a few places together and overall happy. I'm thinking of taking your services for tomorrow as well - museum and then transfer to the airport with same representatives.

Thanks,
