Perfect destination
Apr 2021
There are things that you must see (like pyramids and Egyptian museum) and things you will remember for very long. This tour is the second one. It's not too popular, but you definitely should extend your stay in Cairo for at least one day to go to the desert and valley of whales.

Walking in the middle of Sahara while casually stepping on 40 million year old fossils and having chance to see skeletons of whales/dolphins with legs is an experience for life. Add to that building of the museum according to traditional ways of building - and you will find yourself in the middle of Tatooine. After that you get to have stunning views of lakes surrounded by desert and some jeep riding on sand. I think you can also ride a snowboard on sand, but we didn't take that since we were travelling with 5 year old daughter.

Both drivers (one takes you from the hotel to the desert, another one drives the jeep around the desert) were nice and helpful. Jeep was a bit old, but comfortable enough.

While experience is absolutely stunning there were couple of setbacks. They were not bad enough to reduce our enjoyment, but they are things to consider.
The price seems to be a bit too high and it does not include tickets. The latter was an absolute surprise for us as we took limited amount of cash to the trip. It's a bit strange not to include 10-15 dollars in to the price of a 250 bucks tour. I'm sure it will not affect desicion if it costed 265 dollars, but without a hassle of paying on site for tickets.

The guide was ok, he was very friendly and helpful, adapted the trip according to our requests, and he even brought some materials to tell a bit on history of pyramids, but overall was not very informative. The trip doesn't suppose a lot of storytelling, but wikipedia articles told us a lot more about the sites than guided tour.

There are several tours at nearly the same price from different companies and you definitely should take one of them, although I'm not sure which will be the best organisationally wise.

I would like to thank you for your positive and negative points of view which are highly appreciated and help us to improve our service by rewinding the good ones and taking a serious action with the bad ones as our priority is the satisfaction of our guest . And for the price of activities not included in the cost of the trip there is a misunderstanding because of the tickets and we would like to inform you that the tour that has been booked includes the main costs only, and any other ticket not included in the tour, and this is only a misunderstanding, and you will find in the reservation link that it is written what is included in the price of the tour.

Amazing dessert safari
Nov 2020 • Friends
This tour should not be referred to as just a visit to Valley of the Whales and the Waterfall. It should be described as a comprehensive dessert safari. The trip from Cairo was in a comfortable sedan, and after tea at on oasis we switched to a Land Cruiser. Then we took off across the dessert. The scenery in the Valley of the Whales is impressive - even without the fossils. It is also amazing to visit a top modern museum in the middle of nowhere. After the fossil walk, we again set off across the dessert - up and down steep dunes at high speed, until we reached a camp where sand boarding was offered. After yet more superb off-roading we reached the waterfall, and although not among the biggest you may visit, it is a nice area, and fun to see the locals playing in the water. We returned to the first oasis for a late lunch and then switched cars for the drive back to Cairo. The tour took 10 hours, not 8, but that did not matter at all - it was the best day of our week in Cairo, and we thoroughly enjoyed this our second tour with Mohammad.

The best experience ever
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did the tour valley of whale with Emo tour, and the tour guide name is Ahmed Morsy. The tour itself is very unique and spechless. Uniqe because we can see egypt from different side.
Mostly people only know about Giza pyramids, Luxor, Aswan, nile cruise and surrounding Cairo.
Spechless because we can't say anything about how good the tour is.
The night before the tour, when i told to my wife about the last tour we gonna do for tomorrow (we already did 6 tours before this tour include Giza pyramids, luxor, Abu simbel and many), she is not interested. But after we did the tour she's the one had big smile. And also we did the sand boarding in the middle of dessert. The tour become alive because our tour guide and our driver(he's name also Ahmed). He's not only good tour guide, he also good photographer. He took so many pictures of us. Along the tour he always make us comfortable and make us laughing because he is so funny.
After the tour we had lunch with traditional egypt food.
Overall this is the best tour we had in egypt.
If somebody wanna see egypt from different side, we recommend this tour.

VALLEY OF THE WHALE
Let me started by saying that the Tour guy was very professional and knowledge. Let me honest the valley of the whale is very nice historical but there really nothing that will give you a wow factor. The tour guy believe he saw that and he made so much enjoyable. We drove through some sand mountain in old Toyota . Which was incredibly fun . He when out of his way and took us and show us different area of the dessert. He kept it fun and interesting through out the whole time. Great guide. Well definitely be using Emo tour again because of him.

Driving through the desert to find this valley was an incredible experience. The driver knew the place inside out (apparently lived his life around the field), and Mahmoud explained, in detail, from the geological formation of the spaces to the actual fossils you get to see once you reach the Museum of Climate Change set up in -honestly- the middle of nowhere.

A Journey Through Time
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is an AMAZING experience not to be missed! After a 2-3hr journey from Cairo over two cars, you are immediately rewarded by seeing the rare gem of fossils from animals that roamed when half of Egypt was submerged in water. The tour consists of a trip to a museum at this UNESCO heritage site, then a hike for as long as you like through actual locations where the fossils were found, followed by a lunch, and then one last stop to a location of your choice before returning to the hotel. All along the way, our very knowledgeable and experienced tour guide Walid gave us excellent insight into the many changes of ancient Egypt as well as anything else we wanted to know. If you’re looking for something different and rare to do, this is it!

Amazing place in the desert
Mar 2018 • Solo
The Valley of the Whales was a great day tour from Cairo. Seeing 40 million year old whales fossils that were discovered in the middle of the desert is a great experience. My guide Waleed was good, and provided a lot of information. The tour also included a couple of other stops at the waterfalls, as well as travelling through an oasis area. Just a note, that there is some rough roads to get out to the Valley of the Whales, but it was worth the experience.
