          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.

          Amazing tour with Rania!
          We had a wonderful time with our guide, Rania! She was so motherly and very knowledgeable. Our tour was the private tour to the Egyptian museum, pyramids, lunch and Bazaar and was worth every cent! Although I felt unwell, Rania took care of us and made us feel comfortable! I will always remember this day. The tour was fantastic and we enjoy every bit of it! ❤️

          Excellent tour guide and driver. Highly recommend
          I thoroughly enjoyed my day out in Alexandria with my knowledgeable guide Eriny Fahmy and excellent driver Ashraf. We visited all the top spots on a beautiful day in Alexandria and as Eriny studied Egyptology was provided with informed commentary about each site and artifact we came across. It was great to bypass all the tour buses and big groups and go from place to place with ease. Definitely recommend going through Emo tours for a hassle free and professional experience.

          Karim is a tour god!
          Karim. What can I say? If Karim was a cat he’d be worshiped by all! It’s true, everywhere we went he was admired and friendly. His knowledge in the city, not just the tourist site(s) is endless. We had fun laughing, learning, and exploring the day with Karim. Perfect guide. Will give A+ and would recommend him by name to anyone looking for non boring standard tour!

        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.

        We did not want to travel from Cairo to Alexandria and back in one day so this was the perfect tour. Though not as impressive as Luxor or Cairo tours, the Roman amphitheatre and the catacombs are interesting. Though the new library is very nice, skip the travel if that's all you want to see. Mohamed was a great guide and very knowledgeable.

        Our guide was either unable or disinclined to share much information. He carried a book to which he referred at times, but seemed generally lacking in knowledge about Egypt and Alexandria except for a few visited sites. The guide’s spoken English was difficult for us to understand. Whereas the tour was advertised to include on-board wi-fi, snacks, en-route interpretation, etc, these things were missing. Most serious, the driver drove dangerously in a small Kia automobile, exceeded posted speed limits (up to 200 km/h on roads posted at 100 km/h), bullied his way through dense traffic miraculously avoiding collisions numerous times, and boasted of his ability to manage through the overcrowded streets. The lunch stop was in a scenic restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, the food was good but the service was poor. While we were pleased to see important sites (catacombs, Pompey’s pillar, the citadel, the grand new library of Alexandria, etc), mostly we were relieved and pleased to return to our hotel alive.

        Emo tours arranged a private car from the Cairo airport to our hotel in Alexandria. Our driver Fathy made every effort to make sure we were comfortable on the drive and shared some of his snacks with us. The next day our guide Kholoud (Eternity) met us promptly at our hotel to begin our amazing tour of Alexandria. We visited Pompey's Pillar, The Roman amphitheatre, the Library, Montaza Palace and the catacombs. Kholoud was a wonderful guide and described each of the sights in great detail and made sure our expectations for this private day tour were exceeded. We also had a wonderful locals meal at the Fish Market restaurant which is on the Corniche. Kholoud is a warm, caring and knowledgeable guide, and left us thoroughly enjoying our diversion to Alexandria. I should also mention that our driver did an excellent job of moving us quickly and safely through the challenging streets of the city. The next day our transfer driver, Fathy, picked us up promptly as arranged to take us to our hotel in Cairo. And to top things off, his wife sent him along with snacks and beverages she had prepared specially for us. What more could you ask for on the first three of twenty one days in Egypt.

        Had a phenomenal tour with Raina today! The tour company was able to arrange a last minute tour for me from booking the night before. There seemed to be a mixup the morning of, but I contacted the tour company and they sent a driver over immediately who then brought me to my guide. Both the guide and driver were great, giving their own take on life in Alexandria and some of the cool highlight spots we got to see. Everything went seamlessly and Raina was well versed on the history of all these places, including my peppering of her with questions about each site. I would recommend this company due to their professionalism. Their TripAdvisor reviews are what made me book with them and they didn’t disappoint.

        Had an absolutely wonderful day tour to Alexandria with Mahmoud El Wakeel. The Alexandria Library is simply awesome! Mahmoud is a joy, super friendly and very accommodating to our need. For example, he allow us to spend as much time as we like in all the stops, make minor changes to our lunch menu, etc. Also, would like to thank Ahmed Ragab for his politeness and safe driving. Our guides made this trip a special day to remember.

        We visited Alexandria on the private tour with Emo tours. It was so nice to have personalized time with our tour guide Ehab Hoba and drover Mohammed Said. We didn't have to fight through a group of people to hear what was going on and everything was at our own pace, which i love! The library at Alexandria is magnificicent and definitely worth a visit if not just for the architecture. Once inside a library worjer gives a tour detailing the history and all the works. The drive was also pleasant about 3 hours but it went so quickly we listened to music and joked around with Ehab. I would recommend this tour.

        After two days of intense sightseeing in Egypt, this relaxing day tour of Alexandra was ideal! As in the previous two days of tours with Emo Tours, my guide (Olfat) and driver (Mahmoud) showed up on time. We had a pleasant, informative and engaging conversation on this 2.5 hr drive. We visited the cafe combs, the fortress where the Pharos once stood (which was a really cool visit!) and also the new Alexandra library. We also had a wonderful lunch at an excellent seafood restaurant with beautiful views of the Med.
        As my guide, Olifat was extremely knowledgeable of the history and culture of this ancient city. She knew exactly where to get the best photo shots at each location. And one could not find a more gracious, respectful, and kind guide as her!
        I recommend this tour for anyone thalikes history, likes beautiful coastal cities. And if you use Emo tours, and ask for Olifat as your guide, you will surly have a wonderful experience just as I did!!
