Mohammed is the best!

This detailed tour of Alexandria was enhanced by Mohammed's commentary on the way to the ancient city. The tour is a great way to see more of Egypt in a short amount of time!

We had to pay for every single site we entered... which the listing does not say. Got overcharged at lunch for our drinks, unless our guide had us pay for his (which I think is what happened). Our guide had a pretty heavy accent so we didn't understand around a third to a half of the information he was giving us and we gave up on trying to make him repeat everything. At one of the sites, he gave us two minutes of quick information then had us go walk around by ourselves the rest of the time, while he sat and talked to a friend. We got home, looked at the itinerary and realized we did not even go to all of the sites. One of the sites we did go to, he discouraged us to go in to because "Most people don't, you can see it all from here". Then, hours early, the tour ended and we had the long ride back with just the driver, and not the tour guide. The driver was really nice, but didn't know much English so we wouldn't have been able to ask any questions. Overall, felt like the entire time the tour guide was doing the absolute minumum and making us pay when we weren't supposed to... unless this tour listing really just doesn't include that you have to pay for every single site. But don't book unless you're expecting to pay a lot extra on top of the price, and make sure you know every site you're supposed to visit. There are different companies who do this same tour, so I'm sure you can have a lovely time (like I always have when booking a tour on Viator) but man, what a waste of money and a day. I would have been much happier planning this part myself and not going through Viator, unfortunately. I've waited a long time before leaving this review and it is still, months later, bothering me enough for me to leave it. Very disappointed.
Action packed day, excellent guide and driver

Ashraf was our tour guide and Abanob was our driver. My mother and I were travelling together. It was a full day with amazing sites. Ashraf was extremely caring and tried to make the day tailored to our needs, he was always checking to make sure we were happy or if we needed rest breaks or a cold drink. He was willing to take as much time as we wanted at each location. He greeted us in traditional attire which we appreciated, and aside from seeing the sites of the tour the driver and guide gave us good insight in traditional Egyptian life and culture, and answered all of our many questions. I have visited 50 countries, our driver was probably one of the best that I've ever had, he was very alert and even though the traffic is crazy, his driving was so smooth. The driver and guide were both gentlemen, always opening the doors for us. A great day! I would definitely recommend this team!

My guide Sameh was very knowledgeable about the city and its history He was very accommodating and eager to please. It is a shame that the entrance to the city makes one feel that the city has been recently bombarded, there was so much debris and garbage on the streets, for a few moments I regretted being there. Another think that disgusted me was the fact of seeing so many neglected and homeless dogs and cats.

Guide was nice but his English was poor and he lacked real knowledge which left us wanting. Must improve.
Knowledgeable and fun!

Our tour guide, Gemy was super enthusiastic and informative. He made our trip to Alexandria fun and relaxing. We saw the catacombs, amphitheater, citadel, and library. Also, we made some stops along the way for local food and Turkish coffee. My teen boys had a terrific time. Beautiful city and delicious food. Alexandria is a must-see destination!

Mi rating vale si eliges como guía a Ahmed Ali, nosotros tomamos varios tours con Viator incluyendo las pirámides sólo porque teníamos a Ahmed de guía. Los lugares son todos impresionantes y tours bien organizados, pero un guía con buen español y gran conocimiento los transforma en grandiosos!
