AMR is the best
Aug 2021
By far the best tour i had in EGYPT. Amr was awesome and managed to give me an unforgettable experience. We did everything on my own pace and gave me all the details i wanted and answered all of my questions. Cairo is a very diverse and unique city and only with the right guide can be fully enjoyed. Please make sure you request Amr for this tour as he will make sure you get the maximum of your time.

I also had my own personal driver and was always prompt and ready for the next pickup or drop-off.

To sum up this has been an excellent experience and i would definitely recommend EMO tours and Amr more specifically for anything related to EGYPT.

Keep up the good work and thank you for creating an unforgettable experience for me

Another amazing experience!
Jul 2021 • Friends
This has been my second tour with EMO tours, specifically with Sayed Mahmoud (guide) and Waleed (driver). They do an EXCELLENT job in taking care of you. I have never once been disappointed. They are always concerned for your well-being and provide you with plenty of food, water, 7up, Pepsi, and really whatever else you may want. Sayed is very knowledgeable about all things Egyptian and will take you to all of the must-see sites. Specifically with this tour, you will learn about Cairo's deep Islamic and Christian history. You will see beautiful Mosques, a synagogue, and even the Church that gave refuge to the Holy Family themselves. There are even bonuses, such as the tomb of the last Shah (Emperor) of Iran. You will also be served an EXCELLENT traditional Egyptian meal (which I still am craving.) To say the least, You are in for a real treat. These two gentlemen will literally exhaust themselves in making sure you are comfortable and are having a good experience. If you book a tour, make sure it's with these two, and be sure to leave them a nice tip - it's a highly affordable tour and they deserve it 🙂
HAVE FUN! I'M EXCITED FOR YOU!

Superb Experience with Ola
Mar 2021
Our tour guide was Ola, and she was one of the best tour guides I've come across. I took other tour guides in Egypt, and she by far excelled in her customer service, thoughtfulness, and care to make sure we had a fun and enjoyable experience. We learned a lot about Islamic history, had ample time to enjoy each of the places, was helpful in taking pictures of us without us needing to ask her, and knew alot about the diverse religions that exist in the country. As practicing muslims and as a first time tourist in Egypt, she gave us a very customized and authentic experience. I would highly recommend her and this tour group.

Great tour covering the main sights and awesome guides
Feb 2021 • Solo
I had a great tour with Mahmoud Anwa my guide he helped make it extra special with his knowledge and humour. We even played dominoes and had coffees. The tour covered all the main sights which you wouldn't find on your own. The lunch was good and this is a cheaper way to cover Cairo than on your own with a guide at each place as I found out in a previous trip. Mohamed Saed our driver was great fun too. I fully recommend this tour and these two guides.

EMO, Great Tour, Fantastic Guide Mohamed...
Feb 2020
What made is really meaningful was instead of trying to do this on our own with a book, we contacted EMO tours. We had a really informative rep from there guide us around. Mohamed Hamed was his name. He was really pleasant easy going and informative. Spoke English fluently which was great and he knew so much about the history and area. Great tour, I would recommend it highly. As I would Mohamed, we did another tour with EMO and it was great they let us request him for the quad bike riding around the pyramids which he helped also make fantastic. I need to get back to Egypt for another trip!!! I hope he is still around!

First of all I would like to correct the name of the tour from Full Day to Half Day.
The tour guide, Adel, is knowledgeable, a pleasant and good human being. I enjoyed visiting the Coptic and Islamic Cairo and to know of the relevant history.
