  • From Cairo: Private Full-Day Tour of Historical Alexandria

    1. From Cairo: Private Full-Day Tour of Historical Alexandria

    Explore the rich history of Alexandria; tracing time from its ancient Egyptian roots, through the Classical period, to Roman times and beyond on an informative full-day tour from Cairo. Enjoy meet-and-greet service pick-up, and drop off from your Cairo hotel, and the comfort of an air-conditioned bus. Begin the journey with a visit to the Roman theater in Kom El-Deka; a marble theater that once seated 800 spectators with galleries, sections of mosaic flooring, and a pleasure garden, all surrounded by Roman baths and villas.

    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.

The excursion is beyond praise. Second excursion with this company and both are excellent. The guide is super. The restaurant in which we stopped for a fish dinner is beyond praise. In a word, choose this excursion and this company.
