Excellent service. The tour of historic places in Alexandria was very exciting.
This was terrific. Alexandria is an old, historic city from the Greek and Roman times in Egypt. The beaches have eroded but the new library is wonderful. I am sure there are still many antiquities still undiscovered since the historic sites are in the middle of areas of housing that have been there 100 years or so.
This trip shows you a different side to Egypt. A bit quieter but just as interesting. The catacombs are a truly amazing sight and should not be missed. The standing pillar is also very spectacular. The library is a beautiful modern building, but you will need to take cash with you as the museums inside you have to pay to visit and they confiscate handbags on entering the library.
Excellent - the guide was very knowledgeable. The only issue I had was I tried to contact the supplier many times, per the voucher form to confirm the details of my trip but no one answered the phone.
A full and busy day, a long drive through a fascinating area until you reach Alexandria. Again a great tour with knowledgeable guide. Recommended to all.
Overall this tour was very good. The guide was personable and had a good command of English. The three hour drive returning to Cairo was more like four plus hours due to traffic. Time in Alexandria was limited because of the drive time, but I would have hated being in Egypt without a visit to Alexandria.
Trip a little long, but again our guide Mahmoud was worth the money!!!
Met our expectations. Guide was good. Transportation comfortable
Very interesting! The library was the best part of Alexandria!
Difficult getting a confirmation in advance, but the actual tour was handled well.
Would have preferred to be given a choice of places to visit in Alexandria.
All very good, the guide was excellent!! Drawback was the restaurant was not up to standards. Dirty table cover and generally unpleasant environment.
This tour gave us a wonderful overview of Alexandria. It is so different from the Nile valley! Our driver was very professional and we felt secure during the entire trip. Our guide was very informative, and made sure we got to do everything we wanted. He was very patient with us. Thanks for a memorable introduction to Egypt!
Our tour guide was absolutely awesome. She made us feel so at home in Egypt! I think that Alexandria is a nice day trip if you are spending a lot of time in Cairo, however, if you are only there for a short time you may want to spend more of your time in Old Cairo, Coptic Cairo or the Museum. Alexandria has a rich history but most of it is underground. The catacombs were pretty amazing. Definitely worth thinking about.
