    The best thing about the tour was the tour guide Mrs Maha . She seem to be very experienced in this area and she explained very well the history of each area we went to . The only negative part of this tour is the long drive time to /from Cairo as it takes almost 6 hours both ways. My person recommendation is to stay in Alexandria for a night as it has much to offer rather than few hours of site seeing

    Good tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very informative. We were on a tight schedule and had very little time to view the museum and specific interests. We expected a long day, but we didnt eat lunch until 4pm. The food and seaside location was good. We were quiet hungry and tired. We did not care to do anymore vendor shopping or be pressed to buy anything at that point. Also most of the tour spots' bathrooms were not good at all. I would recommend booking a tour to Alexandria with more times days if coming from Cairo.

    The trip was very informative and absolutely beautiful. Our tour guide was very polite and was able to answer all our questions. Our driver Waheed was a true star. He had been the highlight of our entire vacation. We have every intention of coming back just to see him again. He was polite, funny, and very helpful. Especially regarding the locals and how to navigate through the city properly.

    The guide was friendly at first but seemed uninterested in walking with us preferring to explain the site from a bench in the shade and then have us walk by ourselves. I noticed that other tourists' guides were walking with them and explaining. Our guide said that walking in the sun is hot and appeared to not want to do it. She seemed annoyed when we were surprised that she wasn't planning on walking with us. She did agree to go but had to leave the site to go get a water bottle. I asked another tour guide if it was common practice to allow customers to walk alone. He asked the name of the tour company and had a few choice words to say about it. To my dismay, he chose to speak with our guide. I have no idea what he said as it was in Arabic. Our guide seemed better and spoke about the city as we drove through but at the next site she became aloof and rudely said that she would stay with us the entire time and not leave our side. However, she walked way ahead of us and didn't even notice if we stopped to look at something. We continually tried to talk kindly to her but language was a huge barrier even though the tour was supposed to be in English. At another point, she quickly grabbed a bag of chips and was hastily eating them while trying to buy tickets but again there were issues with communication and she was rude and distant. The ride back to Cairo was equally uncomfortable as the driver blasted his music even though we had asked him to turn it down. He also had the windows completely open (even after I had asked that they be closed a bit). I ended up sitting with a scarf over my head. Overall, the tour was extremely disappointing, uncomfortable, and unprofessional. I will never book a tour through Viator or Trip Advisor again.

    We had an excellent driver who was very helpful and knowledgeable. We visited the ancient sites, which were all worth seeing. It was also good to enjoy the drive there to see the local countryside

    This was a really great tour, I loved Alexandria! It was a private car tour with our own guide who handled the tickets and food, it was great. Our driver Bana was a really good driver & our tour guide, Sofa, had a really positive attitude. Would definitely recommend a trip to Alexandria, I wish I had stayed longer. The fort at the end was just beautiful with the view of the city.

    We often book via VIATOR and trust them that they connect with some of the beta local operators. However this day trip to Alexandria was challenging. We booked a private car and driver only as we did not require any guide or tickets. The driver started the day well with us however he kept rushing us. We had 9 hours and yes some local traffic but driver was annoyed, not our fault. Moving on, as we reached Alexandria, the driver requested we eat at he’s friend’s restaurant $20 per person, we asked for the menu, he said it’s only fish, rice and salad. Two out the 3 travellers don’t eat fish, he got annoyed, we still tried to give him business but he said there was nothing else on the menu. So we refused. He got annoyed and pretty much made our day unpleasant. There was no need for this. Otherwise great day out in Alexandria.

    Guide arrived on time was very helpful and friendly excellent knowledge of the sites. name Ahmed driver was Ali excellent driver had 2 near misses something hit car on way to Alexandria but he kept his cool and as driving in Alexandria young man ran across in front of car tripped over and Ali quick reaction put breaks on and stopped just inches away from hitting him. Would highly recommend these 2 to anyone and emo tours I found to be extremely professional.

    For those looking to get away from Cairo its a great trip. A friendly driver and knowledgeable guide made for a good day. I would recommend to anybody

    We were not told beforehand that the library was closed. Also, our guide although very nice did not take us to Pompeii Pillar nor a walk on the beach promenade to add to our tour time Disappointing…ended early at 2:30 not 4 pm
