Our guide Ahmed ElSayed was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. He was always willing to satisfy our needs and was respecting covid measures by wearing his mask amd frequently using antiseptic and offering to us as well (he was the only, among all the tours we had). We would give 5 stars to the tour guide, but we need to rate the whole experience. The reason we don't give 5 stars is that we believe the agency should have informed us that the library is closed on Fridays so that we could book the tour for another day and the price should be reduced if one of the stops included in the description could not be made. Another thing was the driver who extremely exceeded the speed limit. Even though he seemed very skillful we would feel more safe if he stayed within the limit.
Begin with an early morning pickup from your hotel in air-conditioned transportation heading to Cairo. Once you have arrived in Cairo, visit the Egyptian Museum, then stop for lunch at the Egyptian Restaurant. See the iconic Giza Pyramids and the Great Sphinx.
Travel to the River Nile for overnight accommodation on a Nile Cruise where you can enjoy the night show with dinner and a two hours cruise along the Nile. Relax and get ready for the Alexandria trip the next day.
Take off early in the morning on the road to Alexandria. Start at Montazah Garden Palace then make your way to the Romanian Museum, and Alexandria Library. Enjoy a seafood lunch at a relaxing spot. See the old mosque of Abu el Abbas and the biggest church in Alexandria before traveling back to Sharm El-Sheikh.
