Great experience overall! Both Doma (tour guide) and Mahmoud (driver) were some of the best people we met in Egypt during our stay. They contacted us the day before to set the meeting in our hotel and came on time. We had an incredible experience. Doma provided us with amazing information about Alexandria and Egypt overall. You can hear the love for the country and civilization in his words. He describes all the necessary details in a vivid and easy-to-remember way. Doma also helped us navigate through modern Egyptian culture. He was very polite with everyone around and even got out of his way to recommend local delicacies to eat. We 100% recommend this tour and especially this duo (Doma and Mahmoud).

Ahmed Rezk was our guide and he was fantastic. He met us in the lobby of our hotel and the driver was outside (who was also fantastic). We left early to avoid the traffic, which is definitely worth it. Ahmed was extremely informative both on the drive to Alexandria and at all the attractions we visited. He went above and beyond with the information he shared throughout the trip. The lunch was also lovely, I would recommend the fish with bones. Overall we would highly recommend Ahmed, his driver and this trip!
