We had a full day tour of Alexandria. It took us about 2 and 1/2 hours to get there from Giza but well worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all of Ancient Egyptian History. Visiting the catacombs was amazing and the whole day was great. Had lunch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Highly recommend visiting Alexandria.

Our tour with Narmeen was wonderful! She was very friendly and helpful, and totally open to adjusting the tour to what we were hoping to do in Alexandria. It was overall an enjoyable, stress-free experience of the city and its history!

I highly recommend Egypt Best Day Tours! Nermin was professional and very accommodating. She helped us with a lot more than just the Alexandria tour. We were not sure of what other things we should do in Egypt and she helped us decide and arranged it for us as well!

The trip was excellent. Our guide, Nermin Magdy is very professional, knowledgeable and patience, and she made the trip quite enjoyable.

This Alexandria day tour is a complete waste of a day when staying in Cairo. We were assigned the company Egypt Best Day Tours. There is a 3 hour drive each way and a guide that is not very personable makes for a long day. The catacombs were the highlight of this day trip where anything else that would have been interesting was not included. This tour did not include a tour of going inside the citadel or even the Library. Just a brief stop by to stand outside them and be told about them for 5 minutes. We unfortunately ended up with a tour guide who seemed uncaring and rushed it. Make sure to do research on the tour to Alexandria to make sure you receive a tour guide who will make it worth while as ours did not

Our final tour in Egypt was in Alexandria. Again, Viator delivered a top shelf guide, Yussef. The tour was fabulous. From Pompey's Pillar to the Catacombs, to the lunch overlooking the Mediterranean. Spectacular tour, spectacular guide!
