The third tour that we did with Emo Tours and with the guide Sayed Mahmoud and driver, very recommended! The trip by car to Alexandria is worth doing, in the city you feel a different air to Cairo. The stop at the Castle was great, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Although the Alexandria library was closed, our guide was very helpful in getting us inside for a moment. Equally helpful providing us with whatever possible following our vegetarian diet.

We had a great day with EMO tours and our tour guide Ola and driver Mohamad Mohammed. They were so knowledgeable, kind, and helpful around the city....which is amazingly beautiful! And we ate at the best fish restaurant! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

We did not want to travel from Cairo to Alexandria and back in one day so this was the perfect tour. Though not as impressive as Luxor or Cairo tours, the Roman amphitheatre and the catacombs are interesting. Though the new library is very nice, skip the travel if that's all you want to see. Mohamed was a great guide and very knowledgeable.

Emo tours arranged a private car from the Cairo airport to our hotel in Alexandria. Our driver Fathy made every effort to make sure we were comfortable on the drive and shared some of his snacks with us. The next day our guide Kholoud (Eternity) met us promptly at our hotel to begin our amazing tour of Alexandria. We visited Pompey's Pillar, The Roman amphitheatre, the Library, Montaza Palace and the catacombs. Kholoud was a wonderful guide and described each of the sights in great detail and made sure our expectations for this private day tour were exceeded. We also had a wonderful locals meal at the Fish Market restaurant which is on the Corniche. Kholoud is a warm, caring and knowledgeable guide, and left us thoroughly enjoying our diversion to Alexandria. I should also mention that our driver did an excellent job of moving us quickly and safely through the challenging streets of the city. The next day our transfer driver, Fathy, picked us up promptly as arranged to take us to our hotel in Cairo. And to top things off, his wife sent him along with snacks and beverages she had prepared specially for us. What more could you ask for on the first three of twenty one days in Egypt.

Our guide was either unable or disinclined to share much information. He carried a book to which he referred at times, but seemed generally lacking in knowledge about Egypt and Alexandria except for a few visited sites. The guide’s spoken English was difficult for us to understand. Whereas the tour was advertised to include on-board wi-fi, snacks, en-route interpretation, etc, these things were missing. Most serious, the driver drove dangerously in a small Kia automobile, exceeded posted speed limits (up to 200 km/h on roads posted at 100 km/h), bullied his way through dense traffic miraculously avoiding collisions numerous times, and boasted of his ability to manage through the overcrowded streets. The lunch stop was in a scenic restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, the food was good but the service was poor. While we were pleased to see important sites (catacombs, Pompey’s pillar, the citadel, the grand new library of Alexandria, etc), mostly we were relieved and pleased to return to our hotel alive.

Had an absolutely wonderful day tour to Alexandria with Mahmoud El Wakeel. The Alexandria Library is simply awesome! Mahmoud is a joy, super friendly and very accommodating to our need. For example, he allow us to spend as much time as we like in all the stops, make minor changes to our lunch menu, etc. Also, would like to thank Ahmed Ragab for his politeness and safe driving. Our guides made this trip a special day to remember.

We visited Alexandria on the private tour with Emo tours. It was so nice to have personalized time with our tour guide Ehab Hoba and drover Mohammed Said. We didn't have to fight through a group of people to hear what was going on and everything was at our own pace, which i love! The library at Alexandria is magnificicent and definitely worth a visit if not just for the architecture. Once inside a library worjer gives a tour detailing the history and all the works. The drive was also pleasant about 3 hours but it went so quickly we listened to music and joked around with Ehab. I would recommend this tour.

After two days of intense sightseeing in Egypt, this relaxing day tour of Alexandra was ideal! As in the previous two days of tours with Emo Tours, my guide (Olfat) and driver (Mahmoud) showed up on time. We had a pleasant, informative and engaging conversation on this 2.5 hr drive. We visited the cafe combs, the fortress where the Pharos once stood (which was a really cool visit!) and also the new Alexandra library. We also had a wonderful lunch at an excellent seafood restaurant with beautiful views of the Med.
As my guide, Olifat was extremely knowledgeable of the history and culture of this ancient city. She knew exactly where to get the best photo shots at each location. And one could not find a more gracious, respectful, and kind guide as her!
I recommend this tour for anyone thalikes history, likes beautiful coastal cities. And if you use Emo tours, and ask for Olifat as your guide, you will surly have a wonderful experience just as I did!!
