I highly recommend this tour, my Guide Ali and drivers Mustafa and Mustafa were brilliant. Ali was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. He was very respectful and friendly and made me feel safe (being a solo female traveller) it was very well organized and the best way to see the sights! Made my trip very memorable and special. The only downside was getting ripped off at Sultans Palace (perfume shop) so please be careful if you go there and don't be pressured into buying anything... I got charged £160 and I almost cried, that was the only negative of the whole trip. But it can't drop a star because my guide was so good! (he wasn't there at the store) so it wasn't his fault. I still highly recommend this tour, very attentive and amazing knowledge. I learned so much and saw so many amazing things and great photos too :)

Our guide, Hany Mahmoud, was very informative and helpful. He was good company and fun. The driver, Amir, also for keeping us safe on those crazy roads. Perhaps the day could start later and just take in the Pyramids, the museum and the light show. My wife was hoping to see the markets of Cairo but happy because of the way the day ended with the spectacular light show of the Pyramids and Sphinx. Overall, a magical experience and felt totally safe with Hany as our exceptional guide.

Wonderful experience with Emo Tours Egypt. My guide Khaled was so knowledgeable and super interesting. King Cheop’s pyramid was an experience of a lifetime, to enter. Camel ride to the highest point in Giza was super fun. The museum is full of ‘WOW’ sights.

Hany our tourguide was excellent! He is proffesional and kind and also funny. I just recommend to ask him, if you in Cairo tour!

Very nice trip to Cairo. And amazing English talking guide fro Cairo. Highly recommend
