we felt rushed through sights and even skipped the library because they wanted to sell us an overpriced lunch
, Jan 2022
Was not happy with the tour. I wish we did it on our own by train because we were stuck in a traffic jam for hours and then we felt really rushed through all the sights. On top of that, we were pushed to purchase an overpriced lunch because of which we missed the opening times to the library, our main reason to visit Alexandria. I told them several times that we don’t want the lunch if we are short on time and even asked them to leave it for last, but they refused and assured us that it will be fine, which it wasn’t. We did not enjoy the food either, we ate very fast and did not even finish the meal as we were not happy with the taste. Also, the prices on the menu were 3 times lower than what we paid in advance to the guide.
A long but enjoyable excursion with a few kickups
, Jan 2022
We deeply appreciated our guide Paula who was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the tour. The is a bit long with a 3 hour ride each way from Cairo. This would have been more tolerable if the vehicle was larger. 4 men with in a BYD F3 which was somewhat uncomfortable. We had no water and the driver did not use the AC throughout the trip. The guide was also a bit confused about our itinerary as he asked us to show what was on out booking. In addition for the $300 we paid for both of use we had a hamburger for lunch which we thought was a little uncharacteristic of a cultural tour like this. Overall it was a 12 hour trip which might be necessary but made for a pretty long day

Alexandria tour with Nour and Hany
, Dec 2021
Nour, our guide and Hany, the driver, have been extremely kind and helpful during the tour. We were only my girlfriend and us, so we traveled to alexandria with a car. They bought a delicious egyptian breakfast for us, and the trip was very pleasant. Once in Alexandria we visited the places we agreed (Catacombs, pompei's pillar, the fort and the outdoors of the Library) and Nour explained the main characteristics of each place. The only thing I wasn't totally happy, hence the 4 stars, is that I'd expect more explanations, especially at pompei's pillar and the fort, I really didn't feel I learned as much as I'd expect from an experienced guide. My girlfriend and I also had a chance to do a small tour alone in Alexandria, again Nour and Hany have been so kind to wait for us.

We love the day tour
, Dec 2021
Doaa was eager, knowledge, great communicator, accommodating, and very diligent. The tour was very enjoyable with her broad knowledge about Egyptian history and culture.

What an INCREDIBLE experience. Mohamed was our guide to Alexandria on November 3rd, 2021 and we could not have had anyone better! Not only was his English excellent, but he also went above and beyond to make the long trip from Cairo interesting and comfortable. He made sure we did what WE wanted to do as well as some of his recommendations for sights in Alexandria. We ended up going to the library of Alexandria and gazed over the manuscripts. Such a surreal and incredible experience. I highly recommend booking with this company as they lead you on a PRIVATE tour with just your group (ours was only 2 of us), do not hassle for a tip at the end, and take you to an AMAZING place to eat lunch! Ask for Mohammed, and you will not regret a thing! Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

A lot of walking...

A lot of walking definitely got my exercise for the day. My driver and guide were amazing, friendly, and welcoming!

Pleasant day in Alexandria
, Sep 2021
We had a lovely day in Alexandria, and Ahmed was great about telling us many things about Egypt and Alexandria. Only thing we didn’t get to do that we were supposed to be able to do was see the new library in Alexandria. We booked this tour on June 17, 2021, but were told that only so many tickets are available each day. I have trouble believing that booking over 2 months ahead in the off season isn’t enough to get tickets to see what is advertised that we paid for.

Another great day!
, Aug 2021
great experience! I was lucky to have Mimo as my guide for a 2nd time. I highly recommend this tour.
Alex day trip is a must in Egypt.
, Jul 2021
Unfortunately the day started off stressful as a miscommunication happened somehow between Viator and the Tour Company. My guide was never given my hotel pick up information until the morning of despite my calling Viator and messaging the Tour Company a few days before my tour confirming my details. I ended up getting picked up, after several frantic What’s App calls 1.5 hours late. After that stress, everything else went perfectly! My guide was amazing! He knew so much about Ancient Egypt, but was able to explain in a way I understood. The driver was skilled, always there with the car, letting us easily go from one destination to another. (Pack headphones for the drive to Alexandria) I felt safe traveling around as a solo female traveler. I do recommend this tour, but try to confirm your guide has your hotel information beforehand to avoid my frustrating start. Im not marking down my rating as the guide and drive did amazing and deserve recognition, just the office staff somehow dropped the ball.
