It was a great private tour. Very well organized and highly enjoyable. Both the tour guide and driver are professional, friendly and helpful for everything. Special thanks to my tour guide Sherif who is a very talented multilingual speaker who is fluent in German, Russian, English and even Chinese. Sherif is also very passionate about his job and good at touring and explaining anything, I strongly recommend this tour.

Nice day trip to Alexandria. My guide, Moham Hassan, liked to give all the history
associated with each stop, which was fine as I enjoyed hearing the history. We had a nice
fish lunch overlooking the Med Sea. saw the Tigran Tomb, Pillar, Fort, and more. Unfortunately,
we did not get to see the library because it was Friday. That was a disappointment I had
not anticipated, but maybe should have. Friendly people, nice views, Alexandria is charming.

Excellent one day tour to Alexandria. Pick is early morning mine was 6.30am which helps avoid Cairo traffic.Travel was by Alexandria Desert road, a toll highway that lets you see the fast growing suburbs. Takes about 3 hours each way.
Alexandria is a bustling city, and the sites are very interesting about its long history. Castle on the bay and new Library were my highlights. Excellent all around and very good guide and driver.

My Alexandria trip was fantastic. The catacombs were much better than I expected. The guide was great, personable and intelligent. I would recommend this to everyone. Traffic sucked, but that is Egypt for you.

This was a great tour as well. The guide was great and took many photos of us. He was very knowledgeable and his English was great! I would highly recommend this tour. We never felt threatened in any partner this tour or any others we have taken throughout Egypt.


4 star rating: Recommended October 2016

I really liked this tour. I rated 4 stars because the touristic sites are not as attractive as in other parts of Egypt. But the tours is stil worthy. The guide Zeinab was very nice.

Despite the fact I had the full attention since I was the only passenger in this tour, therere moments I wished were at least a couple of people to interact with. My guide Mohamed was pretty good. The places I visited the one I was last impressed were the catacombs. Even though the Odeum Roman Theater is listed in the places to see it, we didnt stop by dont know why - maybe the tour has been changed and the this site doesnt reflect it. The fort of Qaitbay was the best!!! I was really impressed by the structure and the views from there are amazing. Visiting the Bibliotheca Alexandrina at the end was the way to end the tour!!!

Trip was mostly great. My only complaint was that I didn't have any say in the lunch provided. My guide ordered for me without asking what I wanted or if I had any allergies.
