We had a lovely time with our guide Shereen and driver Simon! They took us through all the sites we were interested in, Shereen giving interesting and thoughtful comments the whole way! They also helped us make lunch arrangements and offered to wait to shepherd us back to our hotel afterward, going above and beyond. They were so great, we requested them a second time for a tour of Alexandria, and again had a wonderful experience. We cannot recommend them enough!

Terrific guide, an Alexandria local, who was obviously extremely proud of the region.
Only disappointment being the Museum was closed on this particular occasion due to a State visit. However our guide was more than willing to incorporate other sites of interest to make amends.
