Memorable day with EMO Tours Egypt
tasyabuckels

Our first day in Egypt couldn’t have been any better. We lucked out with an amazing guide, Tonsi, and expert driver, Mohamad. After some research, we decided to start with the Sakkara, Dahshur and Memphis tour prior to spending time at the Giza Plateau. The Pyramids, temples and tombs you will see on this tour are older than the Giza Pyramids so learning the history from the very beginning was amazing. Tonsi was very informative on what temples and tombs we should spend time in and was able to answer every question we had during our tour. We started at Sakkara where we were able to enter the Funerary Complex of King Unas as well as the Tomb of Sesheshet Idut without any additional charge. Both were so well preserved and Tonsi was able to give a great overview of how the ancient Egyptians lived. They were still excavating on site and you are able to see many spots where they will eventually find additional tombs, mummies, etc. Our second stop was the Red and Bent Pyramids of Dahshur. Here you are able to go into the Bent Pyramid, again with no additional charge. After climbing up the pyramid to the entrance, you then climb the ladder like stairs down about 70 meteres into the temple to explore. Our last stop on the ancient Egypt tour was Memphis, the site of the first capital of Egypt. Here you will see the statue of Ramesses The Great and the Sphinx of Queen Hatshepsut. Afterward, we stopped by a shop where we were able to select our own personalized cartouche made of silver or gold and the shop prepared these for us while we went to lunch at a nearby café. The lunch provided was delicious and included soup, pita bread with dips, your choice of lamb or chicken (or combo) which was served with rice and fries and fruit for dessert. A drink is not included with the lunch so make sure to have some pounds with you to pay if you do get a drink. The tour was well put together but the guide and driver really made the day amazing for us. I definitely recommend EMO Tours for any tour you do in Egypt as well as Tonsi as your guide and Mohamad as your driver. Keep in mind, everyone in Egypt wants a tip including allowing you in the tombs, going to the bathroom as well as taking any pictures for you, it is best to have some smaller bills with you to accommodate tipping for these small things.

Great trip to see some of the lesser known sites in Egypt. Our guide Mohammed was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating; we didn't feel rushed at any of the sites, even going an hour over our time without any complaints or pressure. A wonderful end to a dream trip for us!

Professional tour with pleasant guide and driver

We had a great trip to the Dashur, Memphis and Saqqara. Our tour guide Sayid was more than punctual for the pickup and awaiting us already in our hotel lobby. The care for the tour was very comfortable, air conditioned and well equipped with snacks and cool drinks. On the way to our destination Sayid explained what we are going to do today and introduced us to Egyptian culture, language and famous sights. Our driver Mohamed drove very smooth and calm making the drive feel pleasant and safe. Our tour guide listened to our preferences and let us choose which pyramids to enter, how long to stay at the sites and even let us stop once on the way experience a bit of country side Egypt. Even the lunch we got near the end of the your was very delicious. At the end of the tour you have the possibility to buy souvenirs from government certified shops if you are interested in that. This was our best experience with a guided tour in Egypt so far and we throughly enjoyed the experience. As such we strongly recommend taking the tour and explore the lesser known but, in my opinion, more interesting pyramids near Cairo.

Must do trip!

Great experience and excellent tour. Our guide Mazen was amazing and very knowledgeable throughout. We had the Dahshur pyramids to ourselves so it was very peaceful. Our guide did a great job taking pictures for us. Memphis is also a worthwhile stop even though there isn’t that much to see, it’s history alone is something I wouldn’t want to miss. Experience at Sakkara was also amazing and we enjoyed going into the pyramid there. Guide was great, informative and friendly and the driver did a great job getting us around safely and quickly. Overall, I would highly recommend. Don’t just do the Giza pyramids. You’ll be missing out!

I had a great time on this tour! My guide, Noha, was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and adjusted the itinerary based on my interests. The tour operates exactly as described online, from the hotel pickup to the sightseeing. Dahshur, Saqqara and Memphis add a lot to get a more complete picture of ancient Egypt. Thank you again Noha!

Decent trip

I enjoyed seeing these pyramids out of Cairo a lot, although I felt my guide Ahmed struggled a little bit in his English. He was very nice and also enthusiastic, but stumbled over his words a lot, thus I had difficulty understanding him at times. (I work in ESL teaching as my job so usually I don't have much trouble with figuring out what is being said) Due to this, I felt the information given for some of the pyramids was lacking to a degree. I will say that the driver Mahmoud was probably the best driver I had the entire time I was in Egypt, in terms of not driving like a maniac in traffic as many do there. The car we went in was a really smooth ride too. I did like that all the attraction tickets were included as well as snacks and water. So for the price I paid, I do feel I mostly got my money's worth.

We had a fabulous time with our tour guide Hiathem, the history of the pyramides and the kings were very well explained. Our driver Essaam was of the best, we felt comfortable and safe all the time. The trip took us through villages that gave us the opportunity to see part of the everyday life, working in the fields and fishing in the river. Heitham surprised us with a quick stop at the Papyrus Institute! Our dsy was most enjoyable!
