This was an excellent tour- well worth the money. It's a long day, but having a guide like Shimaa made it go so fast! We were very lucky to have Shimaa as our guide- she made us feel welcome, encouraged our silly pictures, and made accommodations for us throughout the day. The Valley of the Kings was breathtaking, and Shimaa was very knowledgeable and answered our all of our questions. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this tour!!!
Loved the trip and the guide was wonderful. We were met at the airport in Luxor by our guide. We saw everything in Luxor and had a wonderful lunch. I would recommend this to anyone who only had a day to see Luxor from Cairo.
Amazing tour. Can not recommend it enough. The tour company was excellent. Our Guide, Shaima, was the best tour guide we've had anywhere. She was extremely informative. Her passion for Egyptian culture and history was contagious. The sites were unbelievable. The Temples of Karnak, the Luxor temple, the valley of the Kings, and specially, the Temple of Hatshepsut. Luxor is also a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert. This tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip to Egypt.
We were picked up from our hotel in Cairo in a car and taken to the airport to take our flight to Luxor. Our guide, Shimia, greeted us in Luxor after landing and began our journey. We visited The Temple Karnak, Luxor Temple and Hatshepsut Temple which were all different and amazing to see with well preserved details and painting to be over 2000- 4000 years old. We also went to the Valley of the Kings and saw 3 tombs including King Tut's with his mummy inside! It was simply spectacular! Shimia was very attentive and extremely informative and she taught me so much about the hieroglyphics drawings and graphics and the way history changed from kings as gods to priests as intercessors for the gods. She was simply the best and took us to some shops we had special interests in along with a great lunch. There was just two of us so we had our own private day tour with her. Perfect!!! Highly recommended.!
My wife and I recently went to Egypt. The second tour was in Luxor. We were met at the airport by our guide for the day, Shima.
In Luxor, we visited The Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Karnak and a local artisan shop. The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Shima, was a pleasure to be with and she certainly knew her history. She made the past come alive for us.
The tour was lengthy due to flights to and from Cairo. But Emo Tours really delivered . We highly recommend this tour and this guide. Thank you Shima and Emo!
