    Ahmed was the perfect host during our dinner on the Nile cruise ! He picked us up early because we asked if we could possibly stop somewhere before dinner. He was able to take us to that place then still made it on time for the dinner. He was so kind and gracious. He waited with us while we ate our dinner, helped us take pictures and just made sure we had an overall good time. This was the best experience ever !

It was an all-round carefree package, nice drivers, nice German-speaking company. A second German-speaking tour guide on site in Cairo explained and told us a lot. The tour itself is very nice a dream to see something like that, the trip on the Nile is also very nice, it's impressive to see the pyramids and the Sphinx so close and to be able to touch what people built thousands of years ago we would Doing the tour again immediately was a great experience. A big thank you to the local partners (drivers, etc.) who are doing a great job here in Egypt. Also a big THANK YOU to Get your Gide would immediately book all excursions with you again TOP you since TOP !!!!!!!

It was a fun experience that was well worth the effort and money. The journey took a long time but we were in a new van with nice air conditioning and an experienced driver. Our guide was able to tell us a lot about the rich Egyptian history. In short, top experience!!!

Very good organization and keeping in touch with Emo Tours. The guide Sayed Mohamoud was super competent and friendly. The driver was great because the traffic in Cairo is tough. The food was very good. Definitely book.

Very well organized. For the first time there and totally thrilled. Recommended without hesitation. The contact in Hurghada by phone with Sebastian was top, competent and serious!

Nice guides. The only downside is the long drive, but it's not the organizer's fault
