Very good service and flexibility. I will not comment on the Pyramids and Sphinx as they are beyond words. We added a visit to the Mena House which was very pleasant and made everybody even happier.
Highly recommended! An excellent tour with a very proficient guide!
Chris_V, Dec 2022
I had a great time with Noora (tour guide) and Ahmed (who drove us around). They picked me up on time from the hotel, and dropped me off as scheduled. Noora was excellent as a guide - she ensured that we covered off everything that was planned. She is proficient in her communication and an excellent historian. She was on point with her suggestions, and regularly checked in with me. Of note, Noora helped me with some stunning photos and is a great photographer. If I happen to return to Cairo, I would avail Noora and Ahmed's services in a heartbeat. Highly recommended, especially for those who may be a little short on time.

Our guide Tonsi waS very helpful, knowledgeable and Flexible. The Sphinx was the highlight of the tour.
Really solid way to see the pyramids
Drew_K, Dec 2022
Tour was great. Our guide was very informative, friendly, and helpful. Transport to and from hotel was easy, and lunch was delicious. Only negative was two surprise visits to merchants to pressure us into buying expensive Egyptian trinkets…don’t recall those stops being part of the tour description.

The trip was ok, the guido was very nice but her knowledge and English were of límites capacity. The car also had a plástic covering on the back seas, making it very uncomfortable to travel. So if booking request a car with normal seas, not wrapped in plástic.
Good experience, not amazing
Georgina_D, Nov 2022
The tour was good but would have liked more in depth info, although guide was super friendly and helpful at all times. Would recommend although bit pricey for final outcome I think.
Disaster. Ripped off
Floyd_G, Nov 2022
Viator commissioned out the tour to Emo Tours Egypt! They sold me half day ( 4 hour ) tour with entrance fees and English speaking guide! I got the entrance fees but nothing else. The tour provider messaged me last minute that they had no English guide. I asked to cancel and they wouldn’t. No response. So I took the tour with a non English guide only to be hustled in and out of everything and dropped off at 2:30 pm. An hour and a half short of the promise of 4 hours. Then they refused to adjust the billing and charged me full fair. Not a good experience from Viator or Emo 👎👎

Excellent tour of the pyramids
Jeff_K, Oct 2022
This was an excellent tour of the pyramids. We did the half-day tour with a guide and lunch. Our guide, Nader, and driver, Abraham (Ibrahim?), where knowledgeable, personable, and funny. We had a little trouble getting a guide and arranging a start time because I booked the tour late the day before, but the tour operator made extra efforts and everything worked out great. Minor point: Lunch was included (and good), but beverages were extra.
9 Pyramid Lunch + Amazing Tour Experience - A Must! Trust you won’t regret it!!
Cedrik_M, Oct 2022
This tour was freaking amazing and I truly believe it because of our tour guide Tawseef and he’s driver! I couldn’t wait to share our experience. I’ve traveled to over 19 different countries and had my share of experiences w/ tour guides but this man was amazing! Although we were in a touristy area, he took us to less crowded area for more exclusive feel and much better views. He made sure we weren’t hustled or harassed for tips which is a big thing in Cairo; his conversational and friendly demeanor kept us engaged! We LOVED our lunch at the 9 Pyramid, the food was delicious and he made sure we had the best seat. We asked to take a horse & carriage around the pyramids and Tawseef made sure we we had this experience. He was very knowledgeable about history of the pyramids and provided us the opportunity to ask cultural questions about Cairo.

First tour - made the trip !
Sulaiman_A, Aug 2022
Our first tour during our first time to Egypt. Tour guide Mahmoud Saeed was brilliant. So knowledgeable, polite and hospitable. Egyptian people are so kind! Well worth the money and a great trip. Thank you :) able to see the pyramids and sphinx and take a ride on an animal in the desert. Even a chance to go in the pyramids depending on the conditions. Pick up and drop off offered. Recommended.
Very good experience
Luis_F, Jul 2022

Pyramids with Mohamed Hamed!
Jeff_L, Apr 2022
We had a great tour with Mohamed, his English was great and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. He was also punctual and friendly. Highly recommended!
Muhammed was very...
Jordan_H, Mar 2022
Muhammed was very knowledgeable about all the sites we were able to visit with him. Ended up having him for both of our tours, back to back days, and was extremely satisfied with what he had to offer. Van was very comfy transport time between places was pretty quick and we were not "sold" any additional stops, as we were there just to see the sites described in the tours. He is also an awesome photographer. When he says give him your phone, do it, you will not be mistaken. 10/10 review, good communication and again great tour guide!!
Great tour
Alberto_R, Jan 2022
The tour was great, we had a really good experience. Our guide had a good knowledge, answered all of our questions and he made the tour unforgettable.
Egypt trip
Corey_G, Dec 2021
I would highly recommend Mohamed Hamed as a tour guide and a host. Booked last min and he still was able to make it a memorable experience.
