    Our guide Ahab was absolutely amazing! He was very attentive and helpful. He helped us down steep pathways and stairs when needed. Ahab was very knowledgeable about the catacombs and the city of Alexandria. He took great pictures for us and he surprised us with the best icecream we’ve ever had!!
