          Amazing experience, go for it!
          We had a wonderful time in Alexandria with Sayed Mahmoud and Abdullah. Very interesting and funny visit. We even finish the tour having a cup of tea and smoking shisha! I highly recommend if you plan to come visit the city!

          Enjoyable and informative
          It was an excellent experience overall! I was accompanied by driver Eslam and guide Manan. Eslam was punctual and friendly throughout and thoroughly enjoyed his company. The only point of improvement will be that he was on his phone most of the time and talking while driving and also didn't speak good English, so it was a bit of a challenge. Manan was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge and patience and explained everything in detail. Loved her company, would definitely take another tour if she is the guide. Also helped me find a falafel sandwich though I opted for no food in the tour. Alexandria as a city is a must and is filled with a lot of history and interesting places.

          Amazing!!
          The tour was great! We started off at Garbage City then to St. Simon Monastery; an incredible Coptic Church, hand carved into the side of a massive mountain ⛰️ From here it was on to the Coptic area of Cairo; which included The Hagging church, St. George s church and the Ben Ezra Synogue; all of which were amazingly Beautiful structures. We ended with a delicious Egptian lunch. We also had the pleasure as our guide Sayed Mahmoud who was truly Great!! Our driver Shady, also a great guy and very Kool behind the wheel. Thanks guys!! Go Egypt!!!

          Full day tour became half day? Not impressed.
          Unfortunately we feel let down by this tour. What was advertised as approximately 7 hours turned out to be 4.5 hours at best. Very, very, very rushed. Got the impression the guide had somewhere better to be. Also, although the library was closed being a Friday, we were promised on more than two occasions we could get some photos of the outside. When we went zooming past the library I raised this, but was told "no, no, no, we told you, the library is closed today". The guide, while seeming to be very knowledgeable, had problems communicating in English. All in all, not impressed Emo.

          Private Tour from Cairo to Alexandria
          Eriny was our tour guide. She was kind, sweet and knowledgeable. Alexandria is a beautiful place with amazing history. Eriny was very organized and helpful. I certainly recommend this trip without any reservations. There was some delay at the pick up at Marriott in Cairo. We felt disconnected due to language barrier and I think it would be helpful if the driver could have made some effort to explain what the problem was. Some room for improvement for future trips!

          Emo Tours Egypt - Day Trip to Alexandria from Cairo (Eriny and Ali)
          I booked a private tour with Emo Tours Egypt in December 2022 for a day trip from Cairo to Alexandria. This private tour included myself and my elderly parents. Our driver, Ali, promptly showed up to our hotel at 8am. Ali was awesome. He made stops for coffee, food and bathroom breaks without question. The evening drive back to Cairo from Alexandria was equally pleasant. I want to add that Ali is also respectful of elderly folks, and made sure my parents were as comfortable as they could be. It’s a long drive (~ 2.5-3 hours one way) and Ali is cognizant of that so he tries to entertain you as best he can, but only if the passengers are open to it. When we reached the first site at Alexandria, we met both the company’s manager and our tour guide, Eriny. Eriny was our guide for multiple sites, which were the Catacombs of Kom Al Shoqafa, the Pompey Pillar, the Roman Amphitheater, the Qaitbay Fortress, and the Alexandria Library. This is pretty much everything you need to see in Alexandria. Eriny is extremely knowledgeable about Egyptian history, which includes Alexandria’s historical sites. Eriny was also conscious of my elderly parents and was like a virtual daughter to them for the duration of the tour. She even obliged my mom’s request to visit an Egyptian sweet shop, and did not make any attempts to sell us any third-party service or product - can’t tell you how much of a refreshing blessing this is. I have only positive notes to write about Emo Tours Egypt and would most definitely retain their services again, and highly recommend them to other tourists - especially Americans (given how annoyingly particular we can be). P.S. I had to choose the option of traveling with family (young children) cause that was the closest option available. However, it was my elderly parents who were traveling with me.

          Great day out at Al-excellent-andria😊
          We went to a daily tour to Alexandria from Giza. We were picked up in front of our Giza hotel by the driver who took about 2 hours to arrive in the city but had to drive nearly an extra hour through traffic. We were greeted by our friendly tour guide, Eriny Fahmy, who took us first the Alexandria library, then to the Roman Amphitheater, later to the Catacombs to be followed by the temple of Pompey and finally the Citadel of Qaitbay. She was excellent at explaining as she had a good command of English and is well trained as a tour guide, therefore was able to answer all of our questions and even made some suggestions on how to make our overall Egyptian experience more pleasant. I told her she was the best tour guide we had had in Egypt. We recommend this tour greatly if you are looking forward to visiting the sites of Alexandria from the Cairo or Giza and especially if you have limited time. Otherwise, an overnight stay in the city would let you enjoy each site with more time. As I write this review we are yet to be dropped off back to the hotel but we are confident that that will go as smoothly as the rest of the trip as well.

        We were cheated and did not have the tour as decriben on Emo homepage.
        Lenght of the tour:
        • We wered picked up at 07:00 as planned but we where back at the hotel at 17:00 (with traffic) so that makes our tour at least 2 hours shorter than it was supposed to be, according to the website.
        • Ahmed (the guide) stopped at each place for a very short period of time and did not give us any time to walk around the area to have a closer look at things or to take photos.

        No lunch at local restaurant as stands on the webside:
        • Ahmed kept pushing us to finish visiting all of the sites before eating lunch and did not mention a local restaurant as an option. We ended up with one shawarma each and had to eat it in the car on the go, that was not very nice, nor comfortable.

        Some places skipped:
        • We only stopped in front of the Citadel for about 5 minutes and took like 2 pictures from a far distance, he did not offer us to go inside (and the citadel where the lighthouses last stones were used to build the Citadel of Qaitbay) or go closer, when we asked he told us it was empty inside anyways and nothing to see. That left us with only 5 minues at the Citadel.
        • We stopped at the roman theatre but only for 8 minutes and we where rushed out of there.
        • Then after the library we had to push him to let us see the library and the bay form the out side as we wanted to take photos of the cornish. He was rude and told us it was not included (a walk on the Quatbay was in the description) but we pushed him and he gave us a 5 min stop on the side of the street, all while eating our shawarma and take a quick photo shoot.
        • He did not take us to see El Mursi Abu Elabas so we did not even go to that area or get to take our free walk on the corniche.

        Emo tours - have apologised and refunded 1/3 of the price. However, that will not bring to me the things I wanted to se in Alexandria and did not see, aparently this Guied who took os on the trip, can not be trusted.

        My friend and I decided to book multiple tours with EMO tours after having a great experience with our first tour in the Pyramids with Nesma. She was super friendly and the driver Ihab was polite and welcomed us with snacks and a friendly demeanour upon arrival at our hotel. Nesma was a breath of fresh air and a seasoned tour guide.

        We enjoyed this experience so much, we booked a boat cruise on the Nile for the same night with Ahmed. Both Ahmed and the driver were great. Because of a second good experience, we booked a THIRD tour for the following day to Alexandria.

        The EMO Tours company was overall FANTASTIC. They were friendly, fast, patient and made us feel very comfortable.

        For our Alexandria tour, our driver, Fares, welcomed us at our hotel with a friendly smile and made us feel like close friends; Our tour guide for Alexandria, Mohamed Salama, was amazing in his knowledge of Alexandria history and also made us feel like close friends. We enjoyed a day of laughs, questions, and beautiful photography. Mohamed knew all the great spots and where to take the best photos. I would definitely recommend any of my friends or family to use their services. They are a great value for the price, superior service, and welcoming hospitality from all employees. If you are thinking of doing any tours in Egypt, you will not be disappointed by this company and the great employees I mentioned.

        If we booked THREE times; I think it speaks for itself!

        This is a tour you will love. We had a Tour Guy Essam,
        He was very knowledgeable about the History of Egypt.
        The Tour was Amazing, his English was awesome also which helped guide the tour perfect. Essam’s will have your best interest at heart. Allow him to select the restaurant of choice. My husband and I had the most beautiful lunch together while viewing the Mediterranean Sea.

        I was picked up promptly by my guide Ola and driver Sayed at 7:30m. Then the almost 3 hour drive to Alexandria. I really enjoyed Ola’s explanations of the sites, Catacombs, Pompey’s pillar, Roman theater, library and the castle. She always gave me sufficient time to wander and take photos. She’s great about taking key photo opportunities. Inside the Alexandria library it was a very informative guided by the local library guide. The library is cool and worth the time to see inside. The lunch: fish from the Mediterranean, 4 spreads with freshly baked pita, and salad. Yum. Then the long drive back to the city with the normal traffic of Alexandria and Cairo. Great day!!!
