        Half day tour with Amira
        Me and my partner went yesterday for a Memphis, Saqqara and Dahshur tour and we loved every single moment of it! Our guide Amira was amazing, incredibly smart, supportive and kind! The driver was so fun, the food was very nice, the commitment with timing, the vehicle, everything on point! We will definitely recommend for friends!

        A total must-do!
        Our tour guide was absolutely amazing! Magdy was so knowledge, friendly, and accommodating about everything. He spoke perfect English amongst other languages and truly customized the tour to us, answering any questions we had and planned a wonderful itinerary that included things that are must sees in a manageable way. We added Abu Simbel on the front end through the tour company before making it to the boat, and couldn’t be happier. He guided us where to do the best shopping for particulars we were looking for and got us to landmarks during the best times of day, either when there were no people or out of the hottest heat of the day. We have all learned and laughed so much- it was an unforgettable experience and I am so thrilled our guide was there throughout the entirety. My expectations were surpassed; he went above and beyond to make us happy and comfortable. EmoTours, we would really appreciate if you passed the attached pictures to our wonderful guide Magdy! Thank you!😊

        Top notch service!
        This agency is the best I have booked a trip with. Service is top notch. They crafted a private tour throughout Egypt just like I wanted. They’re punctual and very well organized. Definitely 5 Stars. The one thing I would improve is that during the tour of the Pyramids and the museum the visit of the Pyramids was rushed as they wanted to take me to the papyrus, oil and tea stores to buy stuff I didn’t want. Other than that awesome!

        Great trip out to Cairo
        The tour was very informative, comfortable, and an amazing experience. Our guide Sayed Mahmoud was very knowledgeable and gave us all the time we needed to look around exhibitions (also a great photographer). Abdllah, the driver, made the drive to and from each venue was comfortable.

        So happy with these guys
        Have done a few activities with these guys now and everything has been spot on. Booked online without a hitch and with prompt and helpful advice.... In Egypt, the guys showed up on time, everytime. Guides have been responsive to our requests - no shopping meant no shopping (yay!!)... Special shoutout to Khalaf, who we've had twice now - great knowledge, good skills and a fine sense of humour; thankyou my friend

        Amazing guide Sayed Mahmoud, book with him for an incredible experience!
        Amazing experience for our day trip to Alexandria with guide Sayed Mahmoud and Abdullah our driver. Our flight was cancelled so we booked a day tour given we had more time and it was obvious we wanted to book with Sayed again. Our first experience was delightful, he showed up on time and was very resourceful in terms of knowledge about the city, tips for travelling and places where to eat. Always smiling, very funny and super kind, I highly recommend him as well as Abdullah who was our driver for the day. Sayed made us feel very safe (we were two girls travelling) and he even took care of negotiating some prices for souvenirs so that we have fair prices for what we wanted to buy. We stopped by a coffee shop at the end to drink tea and smoke shisha which definitely added to the experience. Thanks again for this great experience!

        VERY GRATEFUL
        I got to Cairo early passed midnight, in the morning and we went to the hotel , my tour package would start next day so at 5 am I thought I could take a tour to Sakkara so I wouldn’t waste my very first day and Eco tour scheduled my tour the same day at 10 am , I haven’t had a tour in that short time, thanks to my guide Waleed and “Afroto” the driver, with their knowledge and kindness I had a great day in Cairo and I didn’t waste my day at the hotel pool because even on vacation the time is money, highly appreciated and highly recommended

        Lovely and Hospitable
        Sayed Mahmoud & Sayed (driver) took very good care of us the entire tour and made sure that there was a nice balance of rest and touring. They were considerate and hospitable and guided us through Giza and Saqqara in a calm and well-organized way with plenty of check-ins and historical explanations. Not to mention they played great tunes in the car!

        Dated, boring and visually unexciting
        The entire light and sound show was disappointing. The whole thing felt so dated and amateurish with basic lighting shinning on different parts of the Pyramids as boring and unclear voices narrated the history of the pyramids. In fact was told all the light and sound shows at various ancient sites across Egypt are the same standards. Won’t recommend.

        There is something suspicious with Emo Tours Company. I was forced to enter shopping stores against my will, and I did not want that. I do not recommend booking with this company.

        INCREDIBLY NICE EXPERIENCE
        VERY HAPPY WITH EMO TOURS From the beggining to the end. Torky with the organisation. The private and fantastic driver Hamed, for a journey from Aswan to Abu Simbel and Luxor, he took exceptional care. The experience of witnessing the best sunrise ever and his recommendations and attention to detail throughout the entire trip! 9 hours drive!!!! And with the tour guide Reham we had the perfect hangout in el Cairo city for our last the day, we had the best advises and best shawarme ever!! Thanks for providing us with a very comfortable nice experience!!! 😊

      Absolute worst waste of money! First our driver was extremely late. He then refused a tip from us telling us “that’s all”. Super rude!
      Then once we got on the boat we couldn’t even stay inside for the smell of fuel. The fumes were so strong we raced through our meal so we could run back outside. We kept asking about ventilation and opening the doors or something to help with the smell and nothing.
      Then when it was time to pay they refused to give us our printed bill and just told us “just pay us the money” when our ticket included the food so we wanted to make sure the charges were correct. After multiple back and forths we finally got a print out and ran outside as we all had headaches from the fumes at this point.
      To add to the horror the performers finished their performance and were clearly sweating and then proceeded to walk around the boat putting their hat on every person. One that’s disgusting from the sweat. Two you have no idea the hygiene of others and you are willingly putting your gross hat on every person on the boat!
      Worst night! Worst experience! And the performance was crap. Huge waste of money and time!

      Great setting, environment, ambiance
      The basic waiter was there to assist even with opening the water and butter packet. The music was very good along with the dancing. We were the first to arrive- got the salad buffet, drinks and food quickly. Our meal was average, nothing special (Sea Bass was better than the chicken).
      The boat moved after 1 hour when the dancers started.
      The building lights from the hotels and the small excursion lit up boats on the Nike made the cruise. Do not expect to see a sunset in the location we were docked at. This cruise is a dinner cruise with great entertainment.
      With an event like this you can meet other travelers if you choose to mingle.

      Everything was good until the bill came and the lead waiter of our area refused to give us our change and took our receipt. He insisted on a tip many times without giving us our change.
      We finally got some change (20 EP) then asked for the receipt and got the receipt with the proper change. Later, we talked to management staff and he was not happy with the behavior of the lead waiter in our area.

      We would have been happy to tip and we did happily tip the basic waiter personally.
      However, the bill already included 15% service charge along with the normal VAT.

      Overall, a good experience- equal to the reviews we read about this cruise.
      Thank you Emo Guide Abdallah he made sure I got across the street

      Complete waste of money.
      Cruise was booked for 6.30 pick up but never actually arrived at Hotel until 7.15!(in fairness he did Tx and tell us he was late)
      The car we was transported in had rear seatbelts that weren’t working an absolute death trap if you’ve ever ventured out on the roads in Cairo.
      The cruise itself was supposed to be a 2 hour trip down the Nile.
      We embarked the ship at about 8pm and almost immediately the buffet was served.
      The ship never actually moved further than 50 metres from the jetty until 9.15 by which time we literally travelled about a mile (if that )down the Nile and back again to disembark at 10pm.
      The guide himself was a waste of time as he spent no time with us and on the journey back to the hotel never spoke a word.
      I truly regret booking this trip as there were several others on various sites we could have used. The ship in question was the Andrea.
      From start to finish it was a shambles to be honest.
      Massively disappointing!!

      Incredible Nile cruise around Cairo with Amazing belly dancers show and dinner on their Maxim boat!

      Highly recommend this tour.

      Safe and easy transportation by the personal tour guide. I suggest to call their agent right after booking to confirm pick up location. We picked Maxim boat. I believe its one of the best ones. We enjoyed dinner and show very much. I’ve been waiting to do this tour and was totally blown away by the views of the city and pyramids at night with incredible belly dancers show and dinner. This beautiful experience will last forever in our memories. Thank you!

      Many thanks to Emo tours with a particular thanks to Shouf for the wonderful service aboard the "Andrea"boat for dinner cruise along the Nile .
      Shouf and his driver picked us up from our hotel on the set time.
      They were both very friendly and gave us a bottle of cold water to take with us.
      After arriving on the boat Shouf made sure we found a table with a good view of the dance floor and showed us around the boat.
      Shortly after the arrival of all the guests a buffet dinner was offered. There was a wide selections of dishes such as pasta,rice,fish,chicken,meat followed by dessert.
      The performers were great! some guests joined in by dancing or singing.
      After the show Shouf and his driver drove us back to our hotel.

      We booked a Nile Maxim tour through Emo Tours. Our guide Essam G and the driver were able to pick us up at a location in Cairo city (not our hotel) without any issues.
      We were served Egyptian style grilled meat on the boat, along with an open buffet for appetizers. There were 3 performances - one band, one belly dancer, and one Tanoura dancer. Essam accompanied us on the boat and was very helpful in explaining the history of the performances and their meanings, while also giving us tips on where to go next in Cairo. We were served Egyptian style grilled meat on the boat, along with an open buffet for appetizers. Overall, a pleasant dinner experience!

      It was okay. Couldn't really see the entertainment "dancers" since our table was in the corner. Food was good but did have to wait awhile for service for food and drinks.

      But the singing, A+. I did enjoy how interactive they were with the crowd. Song choices they sang were something my mom would listen to.

      Did get to walk around the ship and see the Nile and other boats, you can see the dancers better from outside you'll just be looking through the window looking like a creeper lol.

      Excellent service and hassle free. We booked it online before our holiday and when the day came, the tour guide (Fero) was in our hotel lobby bang on 6.30 pm. There was a driver (Mohammad I think his name was) waiting outside in a nice clean car and the tour guide, my partner and I all went together in the car to the boat. Our tour guide Fero spoke very good English and was able to tell us about some of the sites we say along the way. The tour guide stays with you while boarding the boat and sits at the end of the boat if you need anything thing. The entertainment was good and the food was ok. After the cruise, the same tour guide and driver brings you back to your hotel. It was a very good experiment, Definitely worth the money!

      We had an amazing time! Our driver Ibrahim and guide Essra promptly arrived for pickup. Spoke English well and was very knowledgeable. Essra helped us schedule. Our COVID test, recommended other tours that turned out to be great! She was the reason we had such a great experience all the days we spent in Cairo and Giza. First impressions make a difference and we were blown away by our guide and driver! She arranged our whole itinerary for a very affordable price. We could not be more satisfied. The dinner was excellent the dancers were great and we loved it! Their company was amazing and we are more than satisfied! Don’t miss out on this experience! Request Essra every time!

      Our local guide hooked us up with this same "cruise", and we had some time to kill before our late night flight, so it sounded good. However.... we had already had a better meal late lunch, the food was just okay and the show was cheesy old fashioned US nightclub show, not our style, and it didn't travel more than a 1/4 mile, just made the SLOWEST circle in the same vicinity, so no view, especially after dark. There are better options.
