Had an amazing day in Alexandra, the guide was very well-informed and made sure I was comfortable with pace at which we were going, opting to spend more or less time as needed. Learned a lot about the city in-between sites we say, the education never stopped!

Thankfully, traffic from Cairo to Alexandria was light due to a holiday. The drive is quite doable for a day trip.
My guide, Hend, was extremely thoughtful, knowledgeable and accommodating.
Each of the tour stops especially the catacombs and library was worth it.

Our tour guide (Hind) was friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. Some of us had to be back in Cairo for train rides to Luxor and Aswan and she was able to get us to all of the fascinating sites and back in time for our departures. The day before the tour, my ATM card was swallowed by the ATM machine and she even contacted the bank to have them hold the card for me until I returned. 5 stars for Hind.

La calificación de 4 no es por el operador que ofrece el tour es en sí por Alejandría que nos quedo a deber un poco.
Hicimos otros recorridos en el Cairo y los lugares son maravillosos, la gente, la comida la verdad es que es un lugar que vale la pena conocer.
Este viaje en particular es largo y creo que hay otras mejores opciones para visitar.
de Alejandría la biblioteca es realmente espectacular !!

The tour was as advertised but not quite what I was expecting. The catacombs were SO AMAZING. The museum was kind of boring and you couldn't take pictures. The library was impressive but again not what I was expecting - I thought there would be more information or artefacts from the original library. My guide was very accommodating and took us to see the citadel.

Fun trip with a great guide. Drive was long but not bad at all. The tombs here were different than we saw anywhere else in Egypt, and the museum, while small, was incredibly informative and well designed. As long as you don't expect the grandeur of Giza pyramids this trip is definitely worth it.

This trip to Alexandria was great, the travel agency could not have done a better job. Dalia was a great guide and Farrak an excellent driver, kind and cool people. I was the only guest and they made a few changes to the plans for the day, no hassle. The Alexandria library is worth the trip, it is incredible.

It is however a VERY long trip (4 hours from Alexandria to Cairo...), on a very busy road, be ready for that!

First time to meet Hend and right from the start, we enjoyed her company. We visited all the places in our itinerary with complete narration. I forget the driver's name, but kudos to his pleasant personality.

Interesting connection to the Greek and Roman rule, along with being beautiful along the Mediterranean. The round trip time in transport takes a while, so please be prepare to spend the majority of the day in transit.

Be careful when you book this tour to know what it really is... a 3-hour drive to Alexandria, visiting a couple of sites, and a 3-hour drive back. The catacombs are very interesting to see the melding of Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures as each took over Egypt. Do don't go in the castle. The newly re-built library at Alexandria is interesting. Don't know if I'd waste an entire day of vacation on this tour.
