Hossam and Mohamed Mahmoud provided us a detailed tour of Alexandria. They were mindful of our wishes and accomodated us according to what we wanted to see. They were extremely professional and made sure the trip was to our liking at all times checking in to see what we wanted.

This is a review of a full day tour of Alexandria from Cairo which I took on Dec 21. My tour guide was Nour and our car was driven by Bassam. She is a knowledgeable Egyptologist and answered all the questions I put forth to her and Bassam is a calm, safe and efficient driver with all the driving he had to do. It’s about 2.5-3hrs drive from Cairo to Alexandria hence at times it felt a bit hurried considering 6hrs goes in commute with heavy Cairo traffic. The tour guide is aware of this and hence was very quick and efficient at the locations, explaining the points of interest, the overall history behind those locations we went and she took wonderful pictures and also showed me points of interest for photography. She was a thorough professional and her experience conducting this tour was noticeable. She also helped my try a local Egyptian delicacy Koshari while hanging out at a beautiful spot on the beach. On the whole a wonderful experience and worth a try if you have a day to spare in your tour of the majestic historical country.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide Ayoub was wonderful… very knowledgeable and informative- great overview of Egyptian history, great at showing us all the sites… and an amazing photographer! …but also very courteous and nice. Loved spending the day with him. Our driver Islam was fantastic. I couldn’t imagine trying to drive here where there apparently aren’t any real rules on the road. I felt safe with Islam at the wheel. Also very nice and courteous!

My only feedback to Viator is when I pulled up this tour on your site, it said lunch was included. But once I bought the tour, lunch was no longer included on the price. We still ate at the recommended restaurant and had amazing food, but had to pay an extra $25 a piece. Worth it for the great food but disappointed in Viator for Mis-information

What a wonderful experience! Our guide Ayoub was so full of energy and passion. He explained what we were going to see and tying it back to other sites we have seen. Our driver, Abdlrhman was also amazing. Phenomenal driver and also provided details for buildings we saw to and from Alexandria. Highly recommended these two gentlemen, we felt as if we were long time friends!

We had our tour with the tour guide Ayoub. The whole experience overall was great. Ayoub was very attentive and informative. It’s a long journey from Cairo but the driver and Ayoub made it very comfortable for us and the places we went to see were great too, so definitely recommend this tour.
