Fantastic day trip with a very informative and wonderful guide.

My friend, my 2 teenagers and myself were really looking forward to this day trip from Cairo to Alexandria. It took about 2 1/2 hours but the bus was comfortable and our wonderful guide Bossi provided drinks and snacks for the journey that was very considerate as the guide and the driver were fasting as we visited during Ramadan. There were also a comfort break during the drive. We visited all the places mentioned on the tour description. Our guide Bossi was absolutely amazing and really made the trip for us. She has a passion for ancient Egypt archeology and her enthusiasm was infectious... I personally learned so much. Our meal was delicious and Bossi arranged a wonderful table for us with an amazing sea view. Thank you Bossi and Emo Tours.

Very interesting and beautiful city, great tour.

Alexandria is an exceptionally interesting city with much history. The journey from Cairo was comfortable in a private car with driver and guide, collection from the hotel in downtown cairo. The guide was fantastic, enthusiastic, knowledgable and informative and great company. We were shown the catacombs, pompeii's pillar, the fortress where the old lighthouse originally stood and the library. Lunch was included and was at a local seafood restaurant, the fish was fresh and a had a great selection. The guide was fantastic and made the tour well worth taking.

Great way to see and learn about Alexandria if you only have one day

Great tour! We only had a limited time in Egypt so this was a really good way to see a lot of sights in Alexandria as well as learn about Egypt’s history, people and culture. Our guide Mira was very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Egypt. Mira also went above and beyond to help us organise the rest of our trip in Egypt. I would highly recommend this tour and also Mira as a guide!

Our guide Emy was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended

Emy picked us up from our hotel at the allotted time and introduced us to the others on the tour and gave us each a snack pack. On the drive to Alexandria she talked about its history and the sites that we will visit. She was also very happy to take photos of us when we asked. She knew the best positions for photos as well. A great day was had by all.

Good trip. Plenty of sites and activities for a one day trip.

Didn’t really appreciate the additional stop back in Cairo to try to sell us papyrus paper products. High pressure and unnecessary. We were asked if we wanted to go but didn’t realize it was a sales gimmick. That should be explained in detail not as a special additional thing or we were being treated better Just wrong.
