    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.

Esraa was very professional and kind with us. She showed us all about Alessandria, with lot of curiosities and details about Egyptian culture and religion. Luch was very good and in a seasight place. We suggest everyone this experience. Alessandria without Esraa would be very difficult to reach and no so fun.

We really enjoyed getting to know Alexandria. She is three hours from Cairo. We were very well received by guide Adam. His attention, way of explaining the story, cordiality, everything was perfect. The car was also very comfortable.

Our tour guide Heba and driver Fares were probably the best hosts to this country one can get. They were full of knowledge and kindness, and made our trip to Alexandria very enjoyable. Thanks a ton!

Excellent tour, we got to go inside the library and all other places. Lunch was awesome. Ayman the tour guide was great.

Wonderful day trip from Cairo. Best watching and good seafood
