    Top notch informative and fun tour!
    , Aug 2022
    This tour was so informative, fun, and visually overwhelming. Our guide Mustafa was fantastic! Professional yet fun. He really knows his ancient Egyptian history so we learned a ton. He went above and beyond to make sure it was a great tour. He even came into the airport with us to help talk to someone so we could get an earlier flight back to Cairo! 5 stars and two thumbs up for sure.
    A super tour with our toddler!
    , Jun 2022
    Ahmed was an extremely knowledgeable person and full of facts regarding Egyptology and beyond! He and the driver looked after us very well, both very kind and patient and went above and beyond. Thank you!
    Amazing experience!
    , Jun 2022
    Our tour guide Iman( Eman?) was absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable and courteous/ tactful sharing his knowledge along our tour giving us time for taking pictures as well as just appreciate the incredible rich history of the places we have visited. He also did go out of his way to buy water for us, especially when I felt overheated ( hint: make sure to bring enough water with you!) Overall, him and the driver for the trip, provided an amazing experience that we are grateful for!! Absolutely no regrets!
    The best!
    , May 2022
    It exceeded our expectations Ahmed Mostafa is the best guide! This tour is worth every penny you will learn a lot!
    Amazing tour with Sam
    , May 2022
    Our full day Luxor tour with Sam was amazing. He’s extremely knowledgeable and he made the trip for my kid very entertaining. He also took great photos for us and gave us lots of free time to explore. He’s also an animal lover which is truly rewarding after seeing the way the stray animals live here. This was the best tour we did in Egypt by far. Our driver was great too, extremelly safe and he had a wonderful, modern 4x4 car with amazing air conditioning! The best car we had in our whole trip in Egypt. I would recommend Sam and Emo tours to anyone who wants to have a great experience in Luxor.
    Excellent, informative and fun
    , May 2022
    I have an excellent comprehensive tour of the East and West Banks of the Nile with Salwa. The driver was also extremely professional and thoughtful and the car cool and comfortable. In addition, the lunch was delicious. I highly recommend this fun tour!
    A wonderful experience
    , Apr 2022
    Our tour guide, Mohamed, was very knowledgeable about the the archeological sites that we visited, answered our questions thoughtfully, and was very attentive to our needs as it was very hot and he would suggest that we sit in a rest spot every so often. The van was very nice and modern and the driver was a good driver.
    Nice tour of Luxor
    , Apr 2022
    My husband and I went on this tour in mid-April and learned a lot about Egyptian history. We were picked up at our hotel by a driver and our tour guide, Salwa. Salwa was very knowledgeable and a great guide. It was very hot by mid-day so start early! The improvement I’ll flag is that we were taken to two stops not listed on the itinerary, both shops (alabaster and gold) where we felt we were expected to purchase a trinket. I thought we would be more protected from that kind of behavior by going through a reputable tour, but still ended up in that uncomfortable situation. We did not have that same experience on our Emo tour in Cairo though. Overall it was a good tour and hopefully that can be cut out in the future.
    History and Beauty
    , Apr 2022
    This was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Egypt! What a fantastic tour guide and driver. We got to see so many amazing parts of Luxor from the Temples to the Valley of the Kings. We felt very safe the entire time, and our guide was able to provide keen insights into the history and the culture. Would definitely recommend bringing lots of water, and the guide helped by providing every opportunity to stay hydrated. Not my favorite thing to stop at some of the markets, but I understand that a lot of people enjoy the opportunity to purchase souvenirs of their adventures.
    Very professional and fun tour
    , Mar 2022
    My tour was with Emo Tours, and the guide was named Basry. I absolutely loved the day. Despite being booked last minute (literally 1h on viatour), the Basry and his driver showed up a few minutes before the start. We saw so much, and he focused on the important stuff. Also, we had great conversation so it wasn’t simply an overflow of information. He also gave me time to explore on my own, which I really appreciated. It wasn’t my first time here, and Basry really made it so much fun for me. He’s a terrific person, and a great guide. And this tour is excellent but make sure to hydrate lots - it’s a lot of time in the sun, wear a hat!
    Great Luxor trip
    , Mar 2022
    Our guide was awesome- marwangallel( I know wrong spelling) but she works For Emo Tours- used them Several times and they are top notch
    Amazing tour! The tour...
    , Feb 2022
    Amazing tour! The tour guide and service was extremely friendly, punctual, and flexible. Our daughter developed food allergy based on something ahe ate at breakfast, so we needed extra time and visit to pharmacy enroute; the guide (Fatima) was extremely patient, empathetic, and supportive, every step of the way. She was also very informative, and guided us through the tour to make it a memorable one. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the day ling excursion. Thank you Fatima and Emo Tours!!

    Great Day, Excellent Guide
    , Jan 2022
    We visited the West and the East banks of the Nile, several tombs of the pharaohs and the main temples of Luxor. It was all impressive and very valuable experience. Our guide Sam was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to show us everything in such a short time for so much to see.
    A Full Day!!
    , Jan 2022
    This is definitely a full day of seeing the major sights in Luxor. Our guide, Ahmed Omar, and his driver, Bougie (sp) made sure we were taken care of from the moment they picked us up to our return at the hotel. Ahmed Omar thoroughly explained what we would be seeing, historical data and shared personal experiences of life in Luxor. Highly recommend this tour and Ahmed Omar!!!
    Excellent tour of Luxor
    , Dec 2021
    Our guide Hani brought to life glimpses of Ancient Egyptian culture. He was an expert guide! Though more expensive, if you can afford it, a private tour is the way to go. You can decide on your pace and guide can really help tailor experience.

    Saw the highlights of Thebes in a day
    , Dec 2021
    Great way to see all the important sites in Luxor. Neemeen Malad is an excellent guide and Shady an excellent driver. The tour van was spacious and new. Know that it is a packed day and you have to walk a lot. Best to do this in the cooler months

    Visit to Luxor
    , Dec 2021
    The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. The tombs and stories of the kings and queens. The visit to the valley of the kings and the valley of the kings made the visit worth it. You need a guide who is also patient and can answer all questions.
    Amazing Day!!
    , Dec 2021
    Great day, amazing guide Ahmed Elkallaf, he knew how to bypass the crowds, knew his history and was a lot of fun to spend the day with. Definitely recommend the tour and Ahmed as your guide.
    A perfect day in Luxor!
    , Dec 2021
    Our guide Ahmed Omar was fantastic! We covered so much in our one day in Luxor and left feeling like we saw everything! He was knowledgeable and very kind, stopping for us to buy hibiscus at a local stand and ensuring we got a fair price. He helped us schedule a transfer to the airport the next day also. Our photos are lovely and our short time in Luxor was so well spent. Highly recommend!
