An emotional trip

Long drive but worth it. Both the German and British cemeteries were very moving and also well kept. The museum was easy to get around and well curated. The trucks tanks and other hardware outside were also interesting. My guide, Mohammed Doma was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and charming. Couldn't ask for more

Well organised half day tour to the memorials of the Battle at El Alamein. Our tour guide Karim told us all the information we needed to get a better understanding of the historical events. We managed to visit all the three memorials (Germany, Italy, Allies) and the El Alamein Museum as well.
