This was one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on, in large part because we had an excellent tour guide named Nesma. We enjoyed the tour so much that we booked another one for the next day at Memphis, Saqqara, and Dashur with the same tour guide. We were picked up at our hotel by a car with a dedicated driver, in addition to the tour guide (no other visitors—just my group of 2). We then went straight to the Giza pyramids (including Sphinx) to beat the crowds/heat. Our tour guide took amazing photos and made recommendations about how to best use our time. We were then taken to a papyrus art house for a presentation and opportunity to buy the art. Next we went to lunch at a local restaurant, which was very good—chicken and lamb. The food was included, and although the drinks were not included, they were very cheap. Next, we went to the Egyptian Museum where our tour guide showed us all the most important artifacts and knew a lot of history. Then went to the bazaar.
Absolutely amazing service! The driver (Mohamed) was at the hotel on time and he prepared water and snack in the car. He was extremely knowledgeable and made a very nice introduction for the places we visited along with safety tips on what to do or not to do. Fully flexible and made great suggestions on how to fulfill the day. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone wanting to experience the city with a private driver.
A very safe and hassle free way to travel a long journey (5hours)- the two drivers were excellent and followed good covid protocols. The journey was hassle free. Would recommend Emo tours for any long journey like this.
Great tour, and very decent price! We visited Sakkara, Dashur, Memphis and the citadel within 6h. The driver and the guide were super helpful, spoke English super well, and provided lots of commentary
The museum was very very interesting. It would take days to see it all. Khan El-Khalili Basaar was a true experience. We have nothing like it in the USA. A must see.
