      Do not use this company.
      Do not use this company for an airport transfer. I booked a number of trips recently through Trip Advisor, this being one of them. This is the only one who did not show. Waited for half an hour, tried calling them, all without avail. After wandering around the arrivals area I decided to take a cab to the hotel. I then received a WhatsApp 45 minutes later with them holding a sign with my name on it. Could have been taken at anytime. Extremely bad communication and terrible service.

      Trip of a Lifetime.
      These guys were great. It was our first trip to Egypt and we just did not know what to expect. The driver and his companion were very patient with us. Our flight was late getting in but they were very easy to find and it was the first of many great experiences on our trip.

      Not worth in in Cairo
      It’s strange that I just finished giving a 5 star review for an Emo Tour in Luxor, but I can’t for this one. I booked an airport ride from Cairo Airport to our hotel. I thought it would be easier after flying for 15 hours with no sleep. I messaged the company the day before to ensure that we were still on and made sure that I gave my WhatsApp number, assuming it would be given to the driver so that we could coordinate once the plane landed. If you haven’t been to Cairo Airport before - it is a complete madhouse with thousands of people. It took awhile to get through customs, and of course my luggage was literally the last bag off the plane. I attempted to contact the number I had talked to the company on the day before as it was the only number I had. No one answered my texts or phone calls (it was evening time). The next day they told me that the driver was there waiting for me. Maybe he was, but I never found him, he never attempted to contact me to tell me exactly where he was (hard to find a guy with a little sign in a sea of people with the vague description “I am outside the terminal”). Or maybe he left as it took awhile to get through customs and baggage claim. I tried contacting them the next day and they essentially said “We don’t do WhatApp” which is something that it would have been nice to know the day before when I was conversing with them on WhatsApp. Anyway, it looks like I’m eating that money. It’s actually not worth it anyway. When you walk out of the terminal there are hundreds of taxis, and they all charge the same thing - $20 USD (taxis in Egypt really prefer USD, just a heads up). The cab driver who brought us to our hotel was super nice and he got me out of the crabby mood I was in for being sleep deprived and stood up.

      Good value service
      I had a greeter and a driver and both young guys were friendly and they somehow navigated the chaos of Cairo Arrivals without a hitch! Best value for a solo first timer in Egypt, you definitely dont want to be trying to negotiate a taxi after a long flight. Got a good intro to local music hits as we drove along. Good service and good value.

      Transport for Cairo airport
      Even though there was a small issue with the transport size our guide made it work. He even put one of the bags on his lap and bought us coffee for the inconvenience. Very impressed by the history given on our ride to the hotel.

      Excellent service
      Excellent transfer service from Cairo airport to downtown hotel. Great communication on the day of our flight advising us where to meet our driver upon arrival. Sabra was waiting for us with a Clear sign when we exited the terminal, and he was extremely friendly and helpful - the perfect first point of contact in Cairo. The drive itself was very comfortable, and we felt safe the entire time. We enjoyed Sabra’s sense of humour as he introduced us to some Egyptian music on the drive into town. We arrived at our hotel feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thank you Sabra!

      Great Cairo Airport transfer to hotel
      Driver waited while we dealt with lost luggage. He was easy to find. Safe and fast experience to the hotel. Shared possible tours/excursions on the ride and a little bit of Cairo history. Great transport from airport to hotel!

      Professional service
      We visited Egypt late May, early June 2023 and we booked all our tours and transfers, even before our trip, with Emo Tours. We bought a voucher and that worked well. Each transfer and tour was at time, without delays. Drivers and tour guides were nice, friendly and helpful, tours always in English. We booked in total 10 different services. Communication was, via What’s up, easy and helpful, and was especially nice that before each tour we were contacted by tour guide to confirm a tour and pick up time. I would choose Emo Tours again.

      Airport pickup
      We didn't see our driver right at the exit with our name as instructed. It's good to have WhatsApp, so we were able to text and locate each other. It wasn't a smooth start, but It's still a convenient service.

    We visited Sakkara, Dashur and Memphis.
    Ahmed was very knowledgeable , informative and professional.
    He was very patient when we stayed a little longer at some stops. He took his time to explain things to us. We never felt rushed
    The ride was very comfortable and smooth.
    We really enjoyed the snacks he bought for us. And really appreciated him answering all the questions we had.
    We would highly recommend Emo Tours and especially Ahmed Hamed. Ask for him when booking your tour.

    This was an incredible experience for us. Intsar and Nabeel were so professional and kind and made our experience wonderful. They really went above in beyond in accommodating us and Intsar’s knowledge about the area was excellent. Great value for the experience! Highly recommend this tour, thanks again!

    Our guide Amr greeted us at our hotel and we headed out towards Memphis.
    On the way we stopped off and Amr bought us a traditional Flafal wrap and delicious sugar drink which we wouldn't have experienced if we were on our own.
    We talked the whole drive out to Memphis and the first stepped pyramid about Ancient Egypt and Amr was both extremely knowledgeable and humorous.
    The three sites were well worth a visit and having a one to one guide and driver invaluable.
    Needless to say the lasting memories of Cairo are not just the amazing wonders that you see but the people that you meet. The trip wouldn't have been as memorable without Amr, so much so that we booked another trip to the pyramids, through Emo tours and had Amr as our guide.
    I can't recommend Emo tours and Amr highly enough for two seemless days in Cairo.

    Mohammed Salah was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about each of the sites we visited. Don't miss the burial chamber of Teti and the nearby tombs, which have beautifully preserved hieroglyphs. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the pyramids away from the crowds. An unbelievable experience, and a wonderful guide.

    Ahmed delivered a great day. He is a licensed guide who attended 2 additional years of school (after college) to master Egyptian history and to earn his license. We had 3 guides while in Egypt (Giza, Ahmed, and then in Luxor) and Ahmed was our favorite. He is very knowledgable, is fun and speaks excellent easy-to-understand English. He picked us (family with 2 teens) up out our hotel in Giza and took us to the Step Pyramid, Red Pyramid and Memphis. And then ended the day at a local restaurant/venue that provided a full Egyptian mixed-grill meal before returning us. Again, all as expected and described and a really enjoyable day. We'd highly recommend Ahmed for all tours in Egypt.

    The pick up was 40min late. Nobody wouldn't have contacted me and tell if they were coming or not if I didn't contact Emo tours myself.
    We drove to wrong direction right from the hotel and then again in Giza. Even I knew we were in wrong place and going in wrong direction. So we sat in the car for extra about an hour before we were on the right road. I was told that it was the drivers first day but shouldn't the guide know where we are going. After pur guide Omar unterstood that we really knew we were driving around (he tried to deny that first) he promised us to get inside so many pyramids. Finally we were inside only in one pyramid.
    Finally at Sakkara pyramids Omar took some exelent pictures from us. Hr also told us about Egypt history. And a little too much about the religion on the way.
    After seeing the Sakkara Pyramid he asked us if we still wanted to see the other side of the pyramid. Like there was nothing else to see about. So we said no, we are fine. Not knowing there were Mereruka tombs for example. So we missed a big part of history.
    On the way back Omar took a nap!!
    The lunch we had in the end wasn't good. At all.
    There was a lady, Marion, with us. I unterstood she was learning to become a guide. She was sweet and lovely! I give her 5/5.
    And it looked like Omar didn't like us to get along so well with Marion.

    I had a great day seeing the earliest pyramids and Memphis. The guide showed a passion for the history and symbolism assosiated with the monuments we saw, and I learned many new interesting tidbits. Absolutely worth it. I also appreciate the pickup and drop-off at my Hotel.

    Excellent trip and even better tour guide! Amira led us around the amazing Dashur pyramids, Sakkara pyramids, Memphis, and ended with a delicious meal. She knew SO much about the history of the pyramids and interpreted the hieroglyphics for us. I recommend this trip and our wonderful tour guide Amira 10/10!

    My father and I had visited the great pyramid, the Egyptian Museum, the Sphinx, and a famous bazaar the day before. And truthfully our guide was one of the best which lead us to have perhaps unrealistic expectations. Everything started off well, but our guide Ahmed's act quickly wore off. We later found out he claimed to have been a guide for 20 years, and it definitely showed, he could not wait to get over with the day, our mere existence seemed to annoy him, and he took every opportunity to cut corners, take a smoke break, or quiz us on things "we should already know". He is obviously disenchanted with his profession, and I cannot blame him, but although it may have been his 10,000 tour, it was only our second tour in Egypt. It was a real shame because the sites we visited were amazing and our driver was extremely friendly and professional. After a mediocre guided day, Ahmed pressured us to make sure we gave him a good review, that he "expected" rather than earned. We still tipped him, which also was very blatantly expected, unlike our previous guides who only expected our gratuity out of grace. What a shame.

    Despite it being Eid, thankfully the city does not stop for tourists! Compared to the Giza Pyramids, there were less tourists which made it far easier to access the shafts as you didn’t feel rushed to get through. I wish we had started with this tour first as after squeezing through the the shafts in Giza my thighs killed! Essam was highly informative although perhaps given I could tell my teenager struggled to retain focus, some humour could have been thrown into the facts. We were looked after and the juice drinks were yummy!
