Well organized tour of Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut temple and the Karnak and Luxor temples. Nermeen was an excellent guide and shared the appropriate information to bring the monuments to life. She was helpful and attentive to our needs and made the tour comfortable.
We had a fantastic tour with our guide Hamdy Ahmed. he picked us up on time and had so much wonderful information throughout the tour. He also had a great, relaxed attitude. I would recommend this tour and Hamdy as a guide to anyone traveling to Luxor. 5 stars for Hamdy!
Wonderful tour with Angie! We saw And learned so much! Everything was smooth and well organized. Lunch was tasty! Angie is a great guide, age really tight us a lot about egyptian history!
Me and my girlfriend hade a wonderful time and unbelievable experience visiting the east and west banks of luxor with our tour guide Hesham. He and a driver picked us up at the hotel in a nice comfortable car. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience, HESHAM is a friendly and professional young man and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the history of Egypt and the places we visitet.The overall experience was very enjoyable and comfortable. The tur ended with a good food and also a bot ride on the Nile, wiche we extra asked for. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone!
We had a well organised full day tour with tour guide Sam. He has full of knowledge on history.
He is spot on time management. Pickup at the airport at 7:30am and dropped us back by 5pm. He looked after us very well. The driver was the expert. Both of them are professional ones with good attitude.
The lunch treat was excellent and indeed too much to finish up. All the drinks and snacks are also supplied.
We thoroughly enjoyed through out that day.
It included a visit to a local business shop where you could learn how the marble/sand stones are carved. You could buy various arts and handcrafts there but rather expensive though.
Worth every penny of the tour.
Mustafa Awad was our guide for the most amazing private tour my husband and I have ever experienced. We were treated with enormous care and hospitality. Mustafa gave us very in-depth insight on the history of every stop on our tour. He was so good at keeping our attention while making the information so interesting that at every stop there were people stopping and listening to him and even asking him questions. Five stars is not enough for the phenomenal service we received from Mustafa and we highly recommend asking for him if you plan to take a tour in Luxor and your guaranteed to be amazed.
Sam was incredibly knowledgeable. This was a great tour. These Luxor sites are unmissable. I would highly recommend booking this tour with Sam.
Our guide, Yola, has incredible knowledge of ancient Egypt. She is personable and has excellent English. This is a great tour of the East and West bank of Luxor. We had and awesome day trip to Luxor from Cairo.
We had a full day tour to the East and West Banks of Luxor with our wonderful tour guide Angie. She was a wealth of knowledge and made this visit an amazing experience for us! She was at our hotel promptly at 7am to pick us up with our driver (Mohammed). She had water and snacks for us on the drive. Angie has a degree in Egyptian history and was quite the expert at giving us a background on the history. We covered a lot during the day. Queen Hatshepsut's temple was a highlight as was the valley of the kings. We did pay the extra fee to visit King Tut's tomb (300 Egyptian pounds per person) and felt it was quite worth it. We had an amazing lunch at a restaurant called Africa. The food was very good as was the service. Then we rode a motor boat across the Nile to get back to visit the Luxor and Karnak Temples. Angie was very knowledgeable, patient, and took good care of us. I would recommend her highly as a guide.
Thanks Angie and Emo Tours for an unforgettable experience!!!
We enjoyed everything about this tour. Our tour guide Marwa was so nice and very knowledgeable. She made sure we saw the best sites in Luxor and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend!!
We decided to do this private guided day tour in Luxor and found it to be highly enjoyable. We had an incredibly sweet and well educated tour guide named Angie who showed us around. It was pretty hot on the day we went (even though it was early November) so part of the day was pretty sweaty (especially in Valley of the Kings!). Luckily all of these tours provide you with lots of water, which we so appreciated. Although this tour was amazing, one thing I would say is that, in retrospect, I would have liked to see more tombs/spend more time in the Valley of the Kings as it was truly spectacular. However, this is not something we asked about, and so if you are interested I'm sure you could ask to skip the Alabaster Shop (just a sales pitch), and pay a little extra to see another tomb or two. All in all this tour was great and I highly recommend!
It was a good tour with Fawakeh- she is knowledgeable, friendly for what she's working and also good lunch. But I hope they need to write down the extra itinerary which is going the place we didn't plan. That's a shop selling good stuffs but again, that made us uncomfortable. It's like a tourist trap cause I know how that work out for us. They mean no harm but it will be better if you ask us do we want to go there or not? We like the shop and the owner but this should be changed.
Yolanda was very personable, knowledgeable and her english was very good. We will be coming back and hopefully she will still be doing tours.
This tour of the East and West banks of Luxor was very well done. I spent the day with Fawakeh and the time flew by. The sites themselves are very impressive, but what was equally impressive was her knowledge of subject matter on the tour and all other information Ancient Egyptian related. I learned some things I did not know before. The duration of my tour went a bit longer than anticipated I believe, but it was no problem as Fawakeh and her driver were very accommodating to anything I requested and provided excellent hospitality. If you want to see the best of what Luxor has to offer, this tour is a safe bet. Highly recommended. Job well done! Shokran for a lovely day!
My Dad and I would like to thank Yolanda for such a great experience. She had the upmost knowledge of every attraction we went to. Gave us great tips when interacting with locals she translated for us when needed. Most importantly she was kind and patient with us. And the restaurant they took us too for lunch was top notch (try the lentil soup) we had a great time with both her and the driver Amr. 10/10 would recommend.
We loved Luxor. Luxor is clean and laid back. Our tour guide was great. The driver and the tour guide picked us up at the airport earlier than the set tour time. We arrived early with our flight from Cairo. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We had a comfortable ride too. It was amazing to see this part of Egypt, the Ramseys tombs with the original stone wall carvings and colors, and the temples. Our lunch was tasty and a good size portion.
My tour guide was Salwa was amazing! She was very knowledgeable. She was willing to take her time to help explain the history and monuments. It has always been a dream to visit Egypt to see these amazing monuments and tombs. This tour help me do just that. Thanks Salwa/Emo tours. Very highly recommended.
Salwa was a very knowledgeable and helpful guide both during the tour and after. We loved seeing and hearing the history of upper Egypt. The Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings, and Karnak Temple are must see's while in Luxor. Salwa helped us to find and book train tickets back to Cairo and took the other half of our party to the airport as well. She was very accommodating of our schedule and needs as we were visiting in high summer. She kept us hydrated and cool. Thank you, I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
That was a great experience to explore ancient Egypt with Shrehan Yousef Alhagagi. Thanks to her for her patience!
It is a great day with my great experience as an only tourist for the tour. The weather is great. Antonio is a great guide for the tour and he explained the history and their symbolic sculptures and carving in a great depth at each site during the tour. He seems to have a bold knowledge in archeology at Luxor. He suggested I taste the local sugarcane juice and bought me a cup of freshly-made sugarcane juice from a street-side shop, which tastes really great! Well done! Antonio.
We started out going to the colossi of Memnon and then on to the valley of the Kings, going into the tombs of Tutankhamun, Merenptah, one of the Rameses and one more pharaoh sorry, didn't think about writing down the names at the time. The tomb of Tutankhamun was smaller than I expected, which is also naturally explained by the fact that the tombs were constructed during the reign of the king, so the longer the reign the bigger the tomb. I think I wouldn't go into Tut's tomb if I came back, but I don't regret that I did it. I found the other tombs included in the entry-ticket more interesting though. Then we went on to the mortuary temple of Hatshepsut which for me was the highlight of the west bank. After this we headed over to Karnak which was the highlight of the whole day for me, and then on to the Luxor temple which is very similar in style to Karnak. Our guide Marianne was very flexible, friendly and could answer all of our questions very well, and we even managed to fit some extra activities into our schedule. I highly recommend this trip for those short on time, but if I had a day extra I think I would have preferred to divide it into one day for the west bank and one day for the east bank, since I felt the time on the west side of the Nile was a little short and there were more ancient remains I had read about that I would have liked to see obviously prioritizing Karnak and the Luxor temple was still the right thing to do.
An excellent tour which allowed me to see key sights such as the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut memorial temple, Karnak temple and Luxor temple in one day. Ismail was a superb guide: gave me a great introduction to ancient Egypt, answered all my questions and took photos for me much appreciated as I was travelling on my own. I didn't feel at all rushed and also had time to wander around by myself after his explanations. Actually seeing the Valley of the Kings and the tombs was a highlight - made all those years of reading about it come to life! My husband was unexpectedly able to join us in the afternoon and I really appreciated the flexibility Ismail and the company showed so that we could alter the itinerary and pick him up. However, this was also an excellent option for solo travellers - safe, reliable, and pick ups, meals etc were all as planned. The professionalism and knowledge of my guide were outstanding and this was a great way to see Luxor.
Awesome tourguide - could not do enough. Will highly reccommend Emo tours in Egypt - they are awesome, in Luxor as well as in Cairo.

Also great knowledge and experience as guide. its really easy understand to know about each tourist places. we are completely happy to spend day, and great delicious lunch with her.
Regarding of temperature, its quite crazy hot, but she always take care for us. we appreciate to her in the tour.
