Emo Tours for Cairo Shore Excursion??

Jump to last reply

My friends and I booked a Princess Mediterranean cruise in early May. We hate the sky high prices Princess charge for short excursions and want to organize our own Cairo tour. The lowest price we could find is from Emo Tours which quotes us $85 p.p. for 6 people covering Giza, Dahshur, Cairo Antique Museum and a short felucca ride.

Has anyone used Emo tours for your Egypt tours? Could you share your experience?

Another question, Emo said we could have an armed security guard in our van for the tour. As I understand it, the guard is a plain cloth police provided by the government. Has anyone requested a security guard? What're the pros and cons of using one?

Thank you very much!
