This was interesting and it sits on the Mediterranean. They have a lot of beautiful sites inside. I enjoyed viewing the back of the Citadel because the view of the Mediterranean was phenomenal. Also the inside was very historic. I think you would enjoy the tour but honestly it’s just another tour. Must see site.

Fantastic quick tour of some of Alexandria's gems around the Corniche. Qaitbay Citadel is a 4acre photographer's paradise with hidden 'marble granite' paranomic window spots for the curious eyed.

Nice tour but the organization needs to be improved
We made clear since the beginning that we had to take a train to Cairo at 5pm And they proposed us an early pick up
