I liked it. Overall excursion was fantastic. I was picked up in a very comfortable crossover. 3 hour drive to Alexandria. I met my guide John at catacombs location. Then we went to amphitheater, library, fortress and finished it at the fish restaurant on promenade. John was very knowledgeable and very pleasant guy. I did not have a feeling he was there just for money. Big plus. Our driver Ahmed was also very good. Good driving, no speeding, no crazy maneuvers. We stuck in traffic on the way back, but he was calm and very pleasant. The only downside of the whole experience i’ve asked to start tour at 7:15 instead of 6am, and waited inside lobby for 15 minutes while no one came after me. Had to call the organizer to find out the driver was outside hotel all this time. I highly recommend the tour. Thank you Emo for great memories.

Had an excellent tour guide. Kholoud was very knowledgeable and friendly. She always made sure to ask me if I had any questions and an answered all the questions I did have. She was very professional and an amazing guide. Also Mustafa was an amazing driver. Both made my tour great.

The tour was excellent. Ranya my guide really knew her stuff and was able to answer any questions I had. Didn't get to go inside the Alexandria Library as it was closed but that was my fault for booking it on a Saturday. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Egypt.

First time I bought an audio tour. She was very good and I saw the city at my own pace.

Well prepared Judas and excellent driver. We were very happy with this experience.
