Wonderful day trip to Alexandria

I had a wonderful time on my day trip to Alexandria from Cairo. The tour guide, Ahmed was very knowledgeable and gave very important insights on Egyptian history. He took me to the Catacombs, amphitheater, Citadel of Qaitbay and many other attractions in Alexandria. I highly recommend this tour.

Guide didn’t want to work

The guide looks like didn't want to work, sleeping in the car all of the time and didn't explain anything from there. supposed to go to Ancient Roman Amphitheater and took me to Serapeum and Pompey's Pillar without even ask and told me the other place doesn’t exist… he was talking by phone all of the time, he wasn’t interested to give the tour at all. even asked me if I want to go Fort Qaitbey because otherwise take the trip back straight to Cairo! and I payed to see that can believe he asked me for that! (even if I didn’t go inside) I feel I spent time and money for almost nothing and not a good day. No happy experience with the guide tour. No recommend this one.

a great day, our pick up time was confirmed by our tour guide, Ayman, was picked up right on time, and Ayman was so friendly, knowledgable, informative, and talked to us in advance about the whole day and explained everything. Information was given right before different places we were about to visit so we could relate more to what we were about to observe. Overall a great experience and most definitely highly recommended.

Carolyn P

The tour was ok, and the tour guide was nice - she was quite chatty and spoke English well. Spent quite a lot of the time talking to the driver instead of us but the drive to Alexandria isn't particuarly interesting so perhaps she didn't have anything to comment on. She took us to the catacombs which were cool - be warned though, there are a lot of steps down to them! It was quite mindblowing that there is paint that still exists after all this time. The citadel was beautiful but as we were left to walk around ourselves, without any sort of commentary, we felt like we'd missed the important factor of it being one of the wonders of the world! Pompey's pillar was quite random really and didn't particuarly interest us. The library is impressive but it's just that...a library. Without actually using it for study, just walking around it was pretty boring. The interactive things were cool but not necessarily something I'd travel 2 hours to see! Lunch was nice, in a nice beachside setting but not really very impressive - it was just a buffet lunch with some bbq'd meat which took a long time to arrive. It's a few hours drive to get to Alexandria from Cairo and I'm not sure that I'd consider the things at the end of the trip worth it.

I have to say our driver and guide Mohamed Salah wer great, making sure we were ok and if we needed anything. Traffic got bad at one point and they were very calm and talkative. I personally was not impressed with the city itself, but for a trip of two hours the places picked to visit were good, the food they picked was good and the personal touches Mohamed put on the trip made it worth it.
