Nice tour

Excellent tour and guide. Well organized by Emo Tours, definitely, it was a good election. Cairo isn't only pyramids.

I ended up being the only person on this great tour: a lot of history, prompt hotel pickup and very informative and history passionate guide Essam. Good lunch and snacks were included. I recommend!

My perfect last day in Egypt
, Mar 2020
What an amazing day I spent with Amr, the tour guide! He picked me up early in the morning at Cairo train station and took me on a wonderful tour of Islamic and Coptic Cairo, told me a lot about the mosques and churches we visited, but he also gave me enough time for myself to just feel the spiritual part of this historical sightseeing. For lunch we had the best shawarma ever, it gave us energy to stroll through the old market afterwards. The tour was very well organised, I enjoyed every moment and could wish for a better ending of my journey through Egypt! :)
Nice Tour for History of Religion
, Nov 2019
The Tour was very complete on the History of local Religion and its evolution in time through architecture. Our guide Hassan is very knowledgable and very outgoing. You will notice that he knows everyone in all the places you go. Thank you to him ¡ Overall, if you the are interested in the History of religion in Cairo this Tour is perfect for you, if you are not a big fan, the Tour is still nice but the whole day might be too much.

I had only one day in Cairo and I was very happy to spend it touring with Ola. She is very kind and thoughtful, in addition to being highly educated and knowledgeable about the Islamic and Christian sites. We went entirely at my pace and she adjusted the itinerary around prayer times so that I was able to see all that I wanted to see. She provided snacks and the option of a western or local lunch, and allowed me to eat later, which was better suited to my day. She put all the layers of religious and political history together in a way that was accessible and stayed with me. Her English is excellent and her accent easy to understand. If you want to have a thorough understanding of the history and geography of Cairo, ask for Ola!

I live in Bangalore, India. I had just 2 days for tourism in Cairo combined with a business trip. I had not paid attention to what and how I want to see around Cairo. Went to Tripadvisor as my resource. Found an attractive full day tour to Old Islamic Cairo and Coptic Church area. Booked it. I was anxious given that it was my first visit and an unknown part of the world. I promptly received a mail within hours of my online booking giving me instructions that at assigned time of 8 am someone would be there with a placard at hotel. I was impressed at the detail and courtesy. On the day of the tour I found a pleasant a young man Ahmed right in the lobby. He was polite, warm and communicated in English perfectly. As we moved to lobby, there was a clean, spacious and comfortable cab waiting for us with a driver. I was offered a bottle of water and a few snacks were kept around as and when I needed. I was already in a happy mood. The tour itself was phenomenal. Ahmed told me clearly where he was taking me. Once we got there he explained the significant, architecture and history of the place. He answered questions patiently. If I wanted to wait around more, he patiently stuck around. I had total choice of what and how much I wanted to do throughout the trip. I learnt Ahmed is a qualified tourist guide with 4 years tourist education and a certification from Tourist Authorities in Egypt. Clearly that knowledge and training made the tour a pleasant and educative one. What made the tour even better was Ahmed's free sharing of my curious and maybe sometime even intrusive! questions about life in Egypt. I felt like we were friends at the end of it. Thank you Ahmed and Emo for making my visit to Egypt a memorable one. Whenever I come to Egypt - guaranteed that my first port of call with be Ahmed and Emo.
