Had a great experience with Mahmoud Hassan

I had a great trip with Mahmoud hassan! He was very enthusiastic and explained a lot about ancient egypt very clearly! In fact, out of the 4 tours I've been on Mahmoud is the one that has been the best at explaining things. I learned the most from him during my trip in Egypt.

One thing is that there is no lunch as specified in the tour, it's dinner after the tour, since there are no places to eat in Kom Ombo or Edfu.

Overall I'm very happy and enjoyed this very much!!
Experience in temples..

Sam provided the highest level of service throughout the entire trip in Luxor. As travelers from the USA it was comforting to haves one one who was down to earth, easy to understand, and knowledgeable about the area and history of the attractions. Even with only 1 day in Luxor, Sam was able to take us through all the main attractions and some extras that we didn’t expect without us feeling rushed. Additionally, we were nervous about being hassled by the vendors, so Sam generously haggled for us so we wouldn’t pay a “tourist” premium. We very much appreciate his hospitality throughout our entire trip and highly recommend his guidance. Can’t wait to book another trip with Emo tours they are the absolute best:)
A day i will remember

Disappointing

What started off as a pleasant experience, turned out as a not-so-nice day. At first, the guide (named Mina) welcomed us very nicely and started to share interesting information about the sites we were about to visit. He picked us up at our hotel in Luxor, and, since we were travelling with our two small kids (a 4-year old girl and a 1-year old baby girl), we told him he did NOT need to worry in case one of us had to run after them while he was guiding us inside the temple. We made it perfectly clear that we were used to this (we had been to 70 countries by now, like I said to him, we are experienced travellers, as are our kids). They are kids, after all, and we can't impose they stay put for explanations they do not understand. By the way, here we have another problem: we had booked a Portuguese-speaking guide, especifically for this tour because our 4-year-old is VERY INTERESTED in these stories. They sent us an English-speaking guide...so we had to keep translating everything to her (and the guide started to get pissed off when we did so, even though I had previously briefed him I would have to do it because he didn't speak Portuguese as we'd asked for when booking the tour).
From there on, only bad times. He started looking us sideways, talking like a robot, and even didn't wait for us inside the temples when we stopped to take pictures (by the way, since the beggining, when he was still "being nice", he didn't LIKE to wait for us to take ANY PICTURES...he kept saying he would take a picture of us ONLY AT THE END....unbelievable).
Another "detail": on our way to the temples, right at the start, he suggested we took a "desert road" instead of the touristy one, which was way faster and smoother, even though not permitted for tour guides. But he explained it was not dangerous, only they would have to pay something at the checkpoints if they were caught....He always pointed the times we had to go to the back of the car and close the curtains so the guards wouldn't see us. Anyway...we accepted gladly after he insisted on it being better for the kids. On our way from Kom Ombo to Edfu, he took a terrible road and all of us almost got sick inside the car...The driver was driving way too fast, and the road was bumpy, curvy...terrible! They saw my girls crying non stop (and also the both of us, adults, were getting very sick). We said to him that he could take THE SAME ROAD WE TOOK TO GET HERE now that we were returning to the hotel (way earlier than the estimated time, because he skipped sites saying they were simply closed, like the crocodile museum). What did he do? He said he had to check with the driver if he was WILLING to TAKE THE RISK of the SAME ROAD!!!! And then asked for MONEY TO DO SO, reaffirming it would be better for the girls! Seriouly...I don't even have words to describe a person who is willing to gain money over crying children.
Well...to sum up everything, unfortunately, it was a terrible experience among many nice and forever lasting memories we had built with our children while travelling across the Middle East (Egypt was only the second stop on our 40-day trip around 7 countries). I hope you never have the "pleasure" of visiting these places with a guy like that (we had already booked and enjoyed another tour with the same company 2 days before on the West Bank and it was amazing because the guide was amazing: Mourad, what a wonderful guy!).
Sadly, that's what I have to share about our visit to Kom Ombo (no crocodile museum) and Edfu Temple.
Cheers!
