Great tour of Islamic Cairo
Robert_V, May 2024
We really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in such tour. Our guide was very professional, highly knowledgeable in the topic.

PAUL_S, May 2024
Great day with a very knowledgeable guide. The only thing I would have different is to take lunch earlier.
Guide was excellent but the other aspects could have been better.
Jenny_B, May 2024
The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting and kept a good pace as we had much to see. Operations however had our pick up time an hour before needed as the first stop wasn’t even open. The driver himself was great but the car was very warm making it uncomfortably hot during much of the tour. Several times warmer in the car than outside walking. We toured with a different company the day before and it was much more professional.
Highly recommend!
Melissa_F, May 2024
Very fun and busy day! Lots to see. Guide was truly excellent and the driver skilled in the Cairo traffic.
Amazing places to see
Takpaan_N, Apr 2024
Amazing experience, very knowledgeable about all the places we went to. It was a one on one tour and my tour guide was awesome
Coptic Tour - Excellent
Robert_W, Apr 2024
Essam (from EMO Tours Egypt) was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the history of the sites visited and explained things clearly and concisely. He was also extremely friendly and one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We both would highly recommend him. It was great value for what we spent.
Chill day in Cairo
Sarentha_L, Apr 2024
Great tour to do if you want to spend a chill day learning the history in Cairo and the religious history of Egypt. Do it after the pyramids so it feels like a walk through time.
Couldn't be better!
Velebit_M, Apr 2024
Amazing experience! Wafa and the driver were superkind to us and were listening to our extra questions with great care. We listed to the local music while driving and we felt really safe with them.

This tour was stunning..... We were able to visit many parts of coptic cairo as well as several influential mosques. Our tour guide Mahmoud was so good he had a vast amount of knowledge and answered every question we had while giving indepth information about each church/mosques and synagogue. He was very considerate and allowed us to stop for a bite to eat and made sure we covered spot. We LOVED IT !!!! and will recommend it to everyone 👍🏻

Excellent tour that will help you understand the history of Egypt and gives you a good feel for the city of Cairo. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience so rich. Would definitely recommend as it was time very well spent. Would definitely recommend!
Religions sites of Cairo - an amazing tour
deji_d, Mar 2024
One the best experiences we have had in Cairo! Our tour guide, Sayed Amin, was exceptional - he is a fount of knowledge and took us to the best places at all the locations we visited. We learned a lot about the beliefs of the people of ancient Egypt, and how those beliefs shaped the main religions in Egypt/the world today. And, of course, we took amazing photos along the way :) Definitely recommend the tour and Sayed's services.
Informative and awe-inspiring
Harry_H, Mar 2024
Our guide Essam was absolutely incredible. From pick up, he began to share a bunch of history woven as a story to give us a background and base knowledge for each thing we then went and visited. He was incredibly knowledgeable, generous with his information, we had some wonderful conversations and went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. All of the sites were beautiful, full of colour and vibrancy and wonderful to take in. Our driver was also perfect with his timings and got us there safely. We had a yummy buffet lunch on the river also. A wonderful day out.
Great Cairo Tour
Christopher_T, Mar 2024
Great trip of Islamic and Coptic Cairo with a great guide. Lots seen during the day and finished very happy with the days experience. Would recommend.
Excellence in services, warm and sweet professional guideance
Gustavo_M, Mar 2024
We had a fantastic day visiting Coptic and Islamic Cairo. Our fantastic guide (Loubna) and fantastic driver (my apologies, but I cannot recall his name properly, but he was an amazingly sweet orthodox catholic gentlemen. Shame on me!) were both a huge plus. Kudos to both of them for excellent services. Couldn't ask for better company to visit all planned places. Loubna, as an egyptologist, was very knowledgeable, having provided us with lots of important information. She also looked carefully after my mom (an older citizen). Besides, we had enough time to take photos and to explore the sites at our own pace. 20 out of 10.
Great overview of world religions
Kimberly_F, Feb 2024
All of the places of worship were beautiful with amazing architecture unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Asmaa, my guide, was so knowledgeable about all religions and we had good discussions comparing ways of belief. I highly recommend her and this tour!
It’s worth visiting...
ghulam_m, Feb 2024
It’s worth visiting salaudin cutadel, many historical mosques and religious compound and trip was very well organized.
Amazing! Beyond just visiting Cairo.
Melissa_R, Jan 2024
This tour was amazing. It gave us a complete look and understanding of the different key points in Cairo. Fatimah, our guide, was excellent! Her explanations where right at point and very fullfilling. Yussef, our driver, was great too! We had a great time and learned a lot.
Explore Cairo's Religous Diversity
WESLEY_C, Nov 2023
Wonderful time exploring Cairo's religious diversity -- 1 synagogue, 2 Coptic Orthodox churches and 4 mosques. Mostafa was excellent.
FEMALE SOLOS travelers!
Scarleth_S, Nov 2023
FEMALE SOLO TRAVELERS! This is for you! The driver was so so as he was late and I got worried I wasn’t going to make it on time. I got an amazing tour guide, Fatima, she was nice and very funny! She took amazing photos. She was patient and also knowledgeable. The churches and mosque were amazing!
