Very great tour guide, poor scheduling by Emo tours though!
Aislinn
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide was great! He was very friendly and a fascinating sorry teller. He also helped a lot with facilitating my trip to the historical after an allergic reaction at lunch. The only issue was the company told us that our tour start time was moved to 8 so that we could go to the Alexandria library. However nobody came to get us until 9 and we didn’t go to the library at all.

It was an awesome day with Alex, even made better by our guide Sarah, she was very knowledgeable, she knows everything about Alex, answered all of our "many" questions about the city even my kids enjoyed her simple explanation, she was explaining the city history and its different parts while on the bus moving from one location to another. We concluded the day with very nice lunch on a fantastic spot on the beautiful Alex Corniche, That was super amazing day thanks to Sarah!

My fiance and I only had 2 days in Alexandria but thanks to this tour, I truly feel that we got a real feel for the beautiful city. Our guide, Kholoud, was one of the most knowledgeable guides I've ever had. She was welcoming, took time to take us through the history of each stop and gave us enough time to enjoy the sights on our own before heading out. Also, Kholoud is a phenomenal photographer. I've never seen my fiance hand over his phone so readily but thank goodness he did because we have some beautiful photos to remember Alexandria. It was truly a great experience so many thanks to Kholoud!

Kholoud was a perfect tour guide! She was very knowledgable about everything, including the perfect angles to take pictures from! She was very friendly and even baked me some traditional Egyptian desserts! The tour was great, especially the catacombs where there is much more to see than meets the eye! The tour concluded with a delicious lunch overlooking the beautiful sea!

My private tour of Alexandra was excellent. My guide, Nevine, was the best! It was nice having a female guide for a change. She took me to all the important sights and we had lunch at a fabulous restaurant with an amazing view. Enjoy every moment!

This was an absolutely awesome day made even better by my guide Kholoud. The wealth of knowledge passed on by Kholoud was above and beyond what I expected. I was never rushed, always given free time always asked if I wanted photos with anything. I felt completely looked after and comfortable. Please make sure you ask for Kholoud if booking this tour, she was the perfect guide.
