Mahmoud Mohammed Emam was an absolutely incredible guide! He was super informative and clearly demonstrated that he was passionate about the ancient and more current history of Egypt. There is a bit of travel involved in this trip, but Alexandria is a neat city and the history of El Alamein as a turning point in WW2 is awesome. I definitely recommend this tour!
