    As a travel agent myself, I knew from my research into this trip and the recommendations of a few of my customers, that we could not come to Egypt and miss Alexandria. My friends and I booked this tour hoping we'd get a quick tour of Alexandria as it was not in the itinerary for the bigger extended tour we had previously booked for the rest of our trip. Boy oh boy, did we see more than was promised! Our Guide Hany, was unbelievably knowledgeable about the city and was very accommodating about the amount of time we wanted to spend in each of the four spots we visited. The lunch spot was fantastic, and we all walked away quite full, not needing to eat until late in Cairo that night. We had no idea that our tour also took us to Giza to learn how some of the most popular products in Egypt were made and we were blown away by the craftsmanship and quality of the products we bought, namely our essential oils, papyrus and metal work. I will definitely be booking this tour for my own clients in the future who wish to explore Alexandria and are short on time to stay longer in the city. Thank you Hany, Artif (our driver) and Let's Explore Egypt for a wonderful tour!

    To walk on the sands to time, close ones eyes even if to only imagine the daily rigmarole of folks back then (let alone the glorious confluence of Pharonic and Hellenistic civilizations of Alexandria) - is such an humbling experience. Hark to the whisperings of souls at Kom El Shoqfa catacombs, touch the mighty Mediterranean Sea, stand on the ramparts of Qaitbay and gaze into the blue waters - a day is not enough to take us back into aeons. One can only feel a tinge of pain seeing the manner in which these are cared for today. Our guides - Mary and Amir, were a joy to ride with. They did a fabulous job in sharing the richness of the ancient history, shielding us from hawkers and showing a trick or two. Mary followed up with us the day before, picked us right on time from our hotel and filled the car with water (small gesture but very important, given the heat and walking). Lunch of course was very exciting when Mary introduced us to Koshary (all veg). For the brave at heart skip the tomato sauce and go for the red stuff :) Our three disappointment though are 1. Not being to able to see more (as advertised) - but understandable. One cannot do more than 3 (tops 4) items on the list in a day - especially factoring drive to/from Cairo. Kids have this innate and unstoppable ability to soak things up and our 8 yr old (who is genuinely interested in ancient history, thanks Percy Jackson) was NOT happy when the tour ended and kept saying 'but there are 7 items on the list - we GOT to do them'. Viator could highlight this in tour description. 2. Lunch was great, no doubt, but the place was well... a hole. The least we expected was a restroom after an exhausting half, but the restaurant did not even have one. Mary had to finagle something out, but the condition was disastrous. 3. With 3 in our group, definitely would have preferred a larger vehicle... not bad for short trips, but we did feel crammed on the back of compact car. All in all, the sites are worth every minute (for folks tuned into ancient history) and our guides did their best given the means but made it up with their positive energy.

    An experience of a lifetime on my day trip from Cairo to Alexandria. This was an excellent tour which I highly recommend. I was fortunate to have Haisam as my tour guide, very punctual, professional and knowledgeable, but in addition his presence made the trip a fun and comfortable one.

    It was an excellent tour, we had a great experience there. @Nour was an excellent guide, kind, eloquent and funny.

    The trip was comfortable. It was a beautiful day and guide was knowledgeable. We have a few recommendations: 1. Encourage tour guides to accompany guests into locations (at the very least, the catacombs). 2. We felt the citadel was a beautiful, worthwhile place to visit both inside and out. We suggest guides encourage guests to visit the interior. 3. Provide guides with a consistent list of places where bags and cameras are allowed or not allowed, and stick to the locations listed on the itinerary. We had a great time visiting Alexandria, and we learned a lot. Shukran!

    Very poor administration. They picked us up 2 hours late. This was a private tour. The tour description included all entrance fees to the sites. As we started the tour, the guide said that admissions were not included. After several calls to the office, they agreed to cover the fees. The attractions covered by this tour are, in my opinion, unremarkable for a such a long trip.

    Booked a few weeks in advance and contacted them the day before, and they confirmed the guide would meet in the hotel lobby at 7am. After numerous messages and attempted phone calls, he arrived ***TWO HOURS AND 20 MINUTES LATE!!*** First excuse from the company at 7:15am was that they were waiting at the wrong hotel, and would be right over. Checked GPS and with traffic that should’ve been 6 minutes as it was so close. Then they said give them an hour. After 2 hours I asked where they were, and got a new excuse that they were late because of car problems and had to get a new car. When the guide arrived at 9:20, he said that the company did not hire him for the tour until 8am. It was terribly unprofessional for the company to not be ready with a guide, especially after having been reminded the day before! The customized itinerary had 7 sites on the list, plus lunch. The guide informed me that we could only do 4 and could only spend about 2 hours in Alexandria in order to get back in time. I argued for doing what was on the itinerary and suggested a quick to-go lunch to save time, which did allow for 5/7 sites being seen in a very rushed manner. There was just no way to have a tour in any depth and cover all of the itinerary after starting so late. I definitely strongly recommend finding a more professional tour company. If you spend the money to travel to Egypt, it is worth spending the small amount extra to have a good quality tour rather than settling for lower priced unprofessional disappointment. For the previous days of my trip to Egypt, the vacation package was operated by Spring Tours. They are an excellent alternative which would’ve cost about $25 more when I booked my Alexandria excursion, but the difference in cost comes with extremely high quality guides who were early and waiting for us every day. I very much regret the decision to go with Let’s Explore Egypt.
