We had a wonderful day touring Alexandria with our guide Souzy Adell. We were treated to many sites and much information from our guide. I would recommend this day tour as you get the feel of Alexandria. The tour made us want to go back and spend more time in Alexandria.

Our driver Hassim and guide Sharif were incredibly friendly and helpful. They made us feel very safe and welcome. We had an amazing day exploring Alexandria and Sharif was very informative, by far the best guide we had during our stay in Egypt. We felt perfectly safe the whole time we were travelling around Egypt and would recommend to anyone.

Great day! Smiley, our guide was knowledgeable and fun company. Our driver maneuvered both the Cairo and Alexandria traffic like a pro. The tasty Egyptian lunch was in a beautiful white-linen waterfront restaurant. Smiley was eager to accommodate a special request and cheerfully made an extra stop on our return to Cairo. The rest stop along the highway was pleasant and clean. Definitely one of our highlights in our 2 weeks in Egypt.
