    Had a phenomenal tour with Raina today! The tour company was able to arrange a last minute tour for me from booking the night before. There seemed to be a mixup the morning of, but I contacted the tour company and they sent a driver over immediately who then brought me to my guide. Both the guide and driver were great, giving their own take on life in Alexandria and some of the cool highlight spots we got to see. Everything went seamlessly and Raina was well versed on the history of all these places, including my peppering of her with questions about each site. I would recommend this company due to their professionalism. Their TripAdvisor reviews are what made me book with them and they didn’t disappoint.

    Great communication from the start, carried over to an awesome tour of Alexandria. My guide was very smart, knew her history, and managed to show me everything I had hoped to see. The private car was brand new, and the driver added to my day !! Could not be happier, great tour operator, great service. Thank You !!!

    An entertaining and informative day's tour of Alexandria under the guidance of Kareem and driver Hani. Got taken to all the places that made Alexandria famous, like the site of the ancient library and lighthouse.

    Islam was very knowledgeable and flexible. The tour covered great highlights but we did miss the Montazah palace due to time on our end. He was very helpful and took us to get delicious ice cream.

    It was great eating sea food looking at the beautiful Mediterranean sea. Also visiting the oldest most, the library and Roman amphitheater was great

    This trip was extremely memorable. I got to understand the history behind Alexandria vividly by the tour guide Medhat. Medhat went above and beyond with giving me an amazing tour around Alexandria.

    Our tour guide was great! He was very friendly and a fascinating sorry teller. He also helped a lot with facilitating my trip to the historical after an allergic reaction at lunch. The only issue was the company told us that our tour start time was moved to 8 so that we could go to the Alexandria library. However nobody came to get us until 9 and we didn’t go to the library at all.

    It was an awesome day with Alex, even made better by our guide Sarah, she was very knowledgeable, she knows everything about Alex, answered all of our "many" questions about the city even my kids enjoyed her simple explanation, she was explaining the city history and its different parts while on the bus moving from one location to another. We concluded the day with very nice lunch on a fantastic spot on the beautiful Alex Corniche, That was super amazing day thanks to Sarah!

    The third tour that we did with Emo Tours and with the guide Sayed Mahmoud and driver, very recommended! The trip by car to Alexandria is worth doing, in the city you feel a different air to Cairo. The stop at the Castle was great, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Although the Alexandria library was closed, our guide was very helpful in getting us inside for a moment. Equally helpful providing us with whatever possible following our vegetarian diet.

    Manal tiene una amabilidad en su trato que la caracteriza, nos hizo sentir muy a gusto desde el primer momento. Los dos días de tour fue muy puntual para pasarnos a buscar. Nos contó sobre la historia de los numerosos lugares que visitamos, demostró tener mucho conocimiento de la historia de Egipto. También nos aconsejo donde comprar, para no tener problemas con el dinero, en todo momento se mostró honesta y transparente en la parte económica del tour. Es la mejor, la recomiendo totalmente. Hamdi fue nuestro conductor quien también nos acompañó a todos los lugares. Maneja de forma excelente en el tránsito movido del país. Nos sentimos seguros viajando con él.
