    Worth every penny!

    A local guide is the best way to make use of your limited time in a foreign city, and Rasha, our guide in Alexandria, was superb. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the history of all the amazing places we visited, her English was faultless. Also, nothing flustered Rasha and nothing was too much trouble for her either. We wanted to slightly alter the itinerary, she obliged, and went out of her way to ensure we had the best possible City Tour experience ... it really was worth every penny!

    Wir hatten einen tollen Ausflug mit Mohammed und Hany! Super pünktlich abgeholt, sehr informativ und genügend Zeit für Fotos. Aufgrund von Corona gab es zwei Einschränkungen: Die Bibliothek ist derzeit nicht oder nur sehr willkürlich zugänglich für Touristen und der Fraueneingang der Abu-l-Abbas-al-Mursi-Moschee war geschlossen. Ich konnte immerhin von der Türe aus reinlinsen. Mein Ehemann hat dafür extra viele Fotos gemacht vom Innenraum. Die Bibliothek haben wir dann halt nur von aussen fotografiert. Ansonsten war alles bestens. Es war auch sehr lustig und Mohammed hat uns nach der Tour noch die Fotos geschickt. Wir können die Tour trotz Einschränkungen durch Corona empfehlen, wobei das mit der Bibliothek schon sehr schade ist.
