We had a pleasant drive from Cairo by Sam where we met our tour guide Kholoud to give us a tour of the history of Alexandria! Unfortunately the library of Alexandria was closed ( which we knew ahead of time) so we did not get to go inside . But we over had a great day exploring the Catacombs, the amphitheater, and Pompey’s Pilar . We had a nice lunch on the water and headed back. Just enough time in Alexandria and was nice to have our own personal guide. I have booked several different trips with this tour company and they have been so communicative and responsive. If you are looking for a good day tour to Alexandria, look no further!

Alexandria is a very nice day trip. For as special occasion supposed to happen in 2021 for my twins's birthday The catacombs were amazing and the citadel incredibly beautiful. Our tour guide took us to the Fish Market restaurant for late lunch. It had a breathtaking view of the harbor and Mediterranean see. It was a long day but worth going. Our guide was fantastic and hats off to the driver for taking on the inner city traffic. He had some skill I must say

Good tour overall. I recommend not paying upfront for any of the extras because they are quite overpriced (only the extra range pickup if needed). The guide, Heba, was super friendly and knowledgeable, you will be lucky having her.

Easy pickup from our hotel to our guide in Alexandria, everyone is super friendly and had a great day out. Lunch on the water was delicious.

reliable and excellent travel services, god quality of transportation, guide, food.
