    We had an awesome time exploring Alexandria. Our tour guide Ali was the best tour guide we had throughout our whole Egypt trip. His personality was amazing. He had us laughing and smiling the whole time!

    Ali was amazing!! Best tour guide in Egypt. He was very knowledgeable and took the best pictures of our group. He was very easy going and never rushed us which made the tour even better. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Ali

    We had a great time on this tour! Made most enjoyable by our guide Ali. He was very professional and shared so much information on the history of Egypt and esp Alex. Ali and the driver went out of their way to make the trip as comfortable and as leisure as we liked. Ali took lots of photos for us… It was like having a professional photographer too! We asked to stop for special candy and a clothing store which was no problem and much appreciated. Lunch was great with a fantastic view. The sites were all interesting to see and helped us understand more about Egyptian history. Thank you for a special day!

    Ahmed Mohammed, our tour guide ensured that we had a great day at Alexandria . He was very resourceful and was able to explain the history of Alexandria and the places we visited with great detail! He also ensured we spent as much time as we wanted at each site. Overall it was a very comfortable journey for me and my elderly parents. Will recommend it highly!

    We had a great tour in Alexandria with our tour guide Ahmed and our driver Mr. Saeid. Our guide was very informative and provided great history about the city as well. Lunch was very nice in a seafood restaurant overlooking the sea. He changed things up for us on the fly so we could see the library. Highly recommend!

    Most of the trip was the ride there and back, and unfortunately the guided part of the tour only began when we arrived and lasted for the three sites that we visited before lunch. The catacombs were interesting and the ruins of the library. The fort had a nice view of the water. But it seemed to go by quickly. Our guide explained well and took many photos of us but it seemed like a missed opportunity to be spending five hours in the car with a qualified Egyptologist and not learn more about Egypt or Alexandria in general. Probably would be best for people looking for some instagram memories at the three locations and a nap there and back. Lunch was at a pleasant enough seafood restaurant.

    Mohammed Moussa was a very nice and helpful guide. He talked about the history and culture of Egypt. He answered all of our questions and was very entertaining. Our driver Saeed was so nice and chill. Couldnt have asked for a better guide and driver.

    I found the catacombs to be the most interesting part of the tour. Be sure and walk around and see as much as you can.The drive is kinda cool, seeing the countryside.

    My fiancé and I just got back from our day trip to Alexandria. We had the best time, thanks in large part to our amazing guide Ayoub and driver Amir. Ayoub was extremely knowledgeable and very experienced. He shared a lot about Egypt’s history that helped bring the sights to life.
