The city of Alexandria is beautiful and our guide was just the best ever. Great day and unforgettable experience.
On December 18, 2017, we had a Private Customized Day Tour to Alexandria from Cairo. Our guide was Ahmed Eraky. We had a great time. Ahmed is a very knowledgeable person and at the same time very polite, understanding our interests, not pushing us to go to places which other tourists usually like to see in such a big, old city as Alexandria.
We made our decisions what we want to see before the tour and he arranged it the easiest way considering heavy traffic in Alexandria. With him, we saw Alexandria National Museum. Not Museum, nor it's collection is small, as it mentioned in some travel books. It's 3 stories old palace with rare artifacts connected to the history of that territory. Then we saw Alexandria Library and the Antiquities Museum inside it. Unfortunately, nobody could show us where is a Museum of Manuscripts, the second museum inside the Library. We went to the section of Rare Books and saw some huge old maps, but where they keep the real treasure - the only copy of a scroll from ancient Library - nobody could answer us.
Then we saw Fort Qitbey and the place of Lighthouse of Pharos, and finally the Museum of Jewelry.
After the long day, Ahmed Eraky delivered us to the hotel where we warmly thanked him and the driver.
I think that customized style of tours is much better than usual one where everybody sees the same places. Egypt is so rich in history that it could satisfy every tourist with particular interests.
Dear Fellow travelers,
I would like to share my travel experienced with you as a solo traveler. It is my honest travel experienced to share with my fellow travelers of what it is like to travel alone in the ancient country of Egypt which back then it is ruled by pharaohs. To start my tour, the tour guide meet me in the lobby of the hotel. Very friendly and welcoming. And before my tour starts, I am feeling very welcome already before I even starts my tour. I also got to know the driver who is also very respectful and friendly. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and explained the significant of the scenery along the way until we got to Alexandria from Cairo. Senaf my tour guide in Alexandria makes my tour more interesting and enjoyable where I have great time and added bonus is taking a picture of me which I all appreciate her kindness to offer. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. I saw the Pompey's Pillar, Montazah Palace Garden, the famous library, the Corniche, and have some great lunch .I tour the Fort of Qaitbe,y just to named a few. I highly recommend this to fellow travelers as my tour is excellent for making this as one of my lasting best excellent travel experienced. This is my own travel honest experienced as a solo traveler. I highly recommend this tour company to other travelers. They make you feel very welcome and not only that the guide is very knowledgeable and making me feel comfortable the whole time that I am with them. And even become friends with them. So, enjoy your trip and have a great travel. I feel safe traveling around Egypt as a solo traveler -- Jane Ebert California.
