Really enjoyed this tour to Alexandria to see the main tourist sites. It seemed a little rushed as in takes almost 3 hours to travel to Alexandria and 3 hours to return to Cairo. But I am glad we did take the tour. The lunch was excellent.

This was our first time visit to Egypt based in Cairo and Giza, and a trip to Alexandria is a must do if you want to know more about Egypt. Our nice tour guide Ahmad is very knowledgable and very accommodating to our needs, and has a very skilled and experienced driver by his side too, given the long journey on the busy streets! They made us feel especially safe throughout. The lunch was fulfilling and we had a great time. I recommend this tour especially my guide Ahmad and his driver.

Timing and transport was just fine. Inclusions listed and we didn't get until after we requested them were wifi access and bottled water you have to take in note that is as 3 hour ride to Alexandria so the pick up was at 7am and we were able to drink water until lunch at 2pm, also had wifi access until I requested it again at lunch. Another thing I disliked was that since we got into the transport the guide imediately highlighted that Alexandria is NOTHING like the traditional Egypt we would expect, that Cairo shows 2K years BC and Alexandrias is just 200 year old so is was like yesterday so the expectation of Alexandria was on the floor before we even got there. The good highlight of the tour is Alexandria's Library which is amazing and beautiful a complete work of art.
