Efficient and enjoyable way to visit the Pyramids
Alba_S, Apr 2024
The tour is the best way to visit the Giza plateau comfortably. Both the driver and the guide were nice. The information provided was limited but sufficient. The camel ride was nice although we paid more than market price. The tour lasted 6h.
Excellent tour of Giza and Saqqara Pyramids
Jeremy_S, Apr 2024
Mohammed was an excellent guide; knowledgeable, friendly and gave just the right amount of information for us. The driver (also Mohammed) was excellent too, ensuring that we had a safe and comfortable day tour.
Informative Enjoyable Tour.
Todd_G, Apr 2024
My wife and I highly enjoyed this tour. The tour guide (Mohammed) was very informative, and the day went smoothly as we toured numerous sites. I do appreciate that it was suggested we start earlier in the day than planned due to Ramadan and shortened hours. As a heads up for anyone taking this tour, we were (like others) taken to a shop with a short explanation of papyrus making and then given a hard sell. Also, it was definitely not worth the extra price to go inside Khufu pyramid (not much to see, hot, cramped). Liked the lunch.
Mmm ok, but ..
Ramiro_P, Apr 2024
It was ok,but poor information. It says 8:30 hours but it was 5. After this experience we didn't want to get another guide in Egypt
My Giza Dream !!!
Elvie_E, Apr 2024
Stepping on the ground of the Pyramids was beyond words to describe. The whole experience touched me and moved me to another world of wonder. The magnificent view was breathtaking. Thanks to the expertise of our Tour guide Mataro who has the magic hand to click such nice shots. The Lunch was great with the view of the Pyramids. Recommending Emo Tours to ur next trip!!!
Very good ….. amazing guide and driver
Jonathan_F, Apr 2024
We really love it ….. we just didn’t enjoyed the passage on the stores were we felt like we were mandatory to buy something … beside that it was perfect ….
The 'silent' Egyptologist
Dilshan_A, Apr 2024
Friendly but didn't seem to be enthusiastic about his job. Didn't really talk too much. Seemed to know his information but we had to ask him. The driver was fine. Overall average experience.
The best in all Cairo!
JuanFernando_P, Mar 2024
The guide was one of the nicest and most friendly people I've ever met. Extremely timely and willing to help and support during the WHOLE journey. Besides his great job as a guide and expert on History, he also helped me to negotiate all additionals during the day (camel ride, souvenirs, etc.) at the best price. I could not have wished for a better experience.
Y_Y, Mar 2024
The visit to all these sights is in itself amazing. Our guide was also great, patient and very helpful. Had all sorts of tips for us.
Need better guide
Hima_R, Mar 2024
Tour guide didn’t know much English and rushed through places. Our 6 to 8 hours tour was completed in 4 hours. Lunch was great. Camel ride by the pyramids was great.
Great trip, but a few things to be aware of!
Silvia_C, Mar 2024
Firstly, I will start by saying our tour guide (Sorry, I forgot her name) was wonderful. She was very good with providing great, and interesting details, and she was easy to get alone with. The driver was also very good and polite. Overall, the trip was super. You do get to see the Giza pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis and the Saqqara step pyramid complex. All of that was super - couldn't fault it. However, I was not aware of all the possible little extras in each zone. For example, tickets included are basic and for the main site, but when you reach the main site, there are tombs and other events/mini museums etc that require additional payment and/or a more comprehensive entry ticket. So, unfortunately, you do miss out on things when you are there. It depends how thorough you want to be in each site. For me, it was a frustrating because I never had the option and I think there should be more clarity for tourists on this matter. I paid for the lunch included in my ticket. The food was basic, but sufficient. One thing I didn't really like was being dragged to a souvenir shop, then a papyrus shop and then an essence shop - all over priced items aimed at tourists and you know, they really try to hard sell and I hate that pushy energy. You can get all that stuff a lot cheaper in bookshops and in shops in Mall of Egypt., but I guess the tour operators get a cut if they get their customers in there buying stuff. So, yes, no option going to those places and had I been given the option, I'd have definitely said: NO! To sum up, great tour guide, ok lunch, but be aware of the missing extras in each site, and being taken to shops you never asked to visit outside of what is on the ticket itinerary.
Good tour but rushed
Zubair_H, Feb 2024
Good tour around the pyramids, Memphis and saqqarra. The tour guide was knowledgeable and definitely helped us to not be hassled by shops sellers at the pyramids. I did feel rushed and thus was supposed to be 8 hours and ended up being 6 hours including the hotel pick up and drop off. Be sure to take your time and not be rushed by the guide or driver.
Great guide and driver
Eva_M, Jan 2024
We were a group of 4 friends and had a great time with Iham our guide and Hussein our driver. They are a great team and they made us feel very welcome on our first day in Egypt. Iham was flexible and made sure that all of us got to see whatever was on our lists to see. The car was in good condition and clean. Water was provided throughout the day. Thank you to them again!
Perfect Tour with a great driver
Shalini_R, Jan 2024
Abdullah arrived at the hotel on time and greeted us with a smile. He speaks good English and is very cordial and professional. He drives safely and takes good pictures as well.
Great sights
Amazing sights of the ancient Egyptian wonders. The guide was very brief and just wanted to sell us more products.
A comfy experience of touring pyramid sites
Samuel_W, Jan 2024
This is a comfy tour with a private vehicle taking me and my wife to different pyramid sites. Those are magnificent archeological landmarks with eye attractive photo background. It is worthwhile to pay extra for the camel ride in order to view the pyramids in a paranormal perspective. Thanks our tour guide, Tonsi, who is knowledgable and witty. We enjoy the tour so much.
Wonderful day visiting pyramids and more.
Roslyn_D, Jan 2024
We had a wonderful day. It was full of different activities and sites. The pyramids, essential oils, the sphinx, and more. Our guide was very knowledgeable and presented the history clearly enhancing our understanding. Tonsi, Our guide was fun too. And our driver was excellent. We were completely thrilled
Amazing experience
Maira_V, Jan 2024
The tour was amazing. The guide Ahmed is really good. Great knowledge about everything. He can also speak portuguese and it made our tour much better. I went with my mother. We are Brazilian and she can't understand English very well. The guide helped us a lot and was very kind. The driver was very good and kind too.
A great private experience
Tyler_K, Jan 2024
We had a great day and got to see a lot on this private tour! The guide and driver were very good, and the lunch was surprisingly good as well!
