We had a great full day tour to Alexandria with Essam (spelling??)
The driver and our guide were both friendly and professional. Our guide was a former schoolteacher so he was great at telling us the history of Egypt and Alexandria. The drive was long but went by fast and we stopped for a break about half way through. Once we got to Alexandria we visited the Catacombs, a huge tower, a roman theatre, and more. Our guide was great making sure that we were taken care of and always happy. I highly recommend!!

We had Mohammed as our driver and he was amazing. He took us to all of the sites we wanted to see and recommended a great restaurant with a view of the Citadel and the Mediterranean Sea. I highly recommend going to Alexandria for a day with this company. The city was beautiful and the service was excellent.

This was my second tour with Sayed Mahmoud and my 4th day with Mohamed Esshak and I am so glad we had them again for this tour! I could not speak more highly of these two men they really made our trip so incredible and memorable! They truly went above and beyond with every part of the tour and I was truly sad to say goodbye to them at the end of our trip. I feel like I did not just see these amazing sights but also made friends along the way. Thank you Emo tours for having such amazing staff who truly took such good care of us. This tour took us to the most beautiful places in Alexandria and Sayed made sure we had plenty to time to see everything and take some amazing pictures! Thank you Mohamed and Sayed for such an amazing time in Egypt!! You will be missed!

The guide (Pola Samir) was knowledgeable, passionate about his country’s history and very helpful in accommodating our wishes. He was kind, respectful and a very pleasant person.
The driver (Mohammad) was also very professional and attentive to our needs. He brought us safely to and from our Hotel. Both were very punctual. They made our day!

What a nice comfortable tour with Medhat. He is almost a native English speaker and his knowledge of Egyptology is professorial. Medhat is a great story teller and he reminds me of some of my favorite college instructors whose impression on me will last a lifetime. Don’t miss out on a day well spent from Cairo to Alexandria. The car was comfortable. The tour was interesting. The lunch was great. And best of all was my guide, Medhat.

Mohammed Salah was my Tour guide for this. What an amazing cool guy he is. We followed the inventory as planned. Takes about 2 hours to get from Cairo to Alexandria, well worth the travel, Alexandria especially the view of the Mediterranean Sea was beautiful, I would go here just for the view. Mohammed Salah was amazing, he offered me breakfast, tea, water snacks, he made sure I was comfortable at every stage, very knowledgeable He also took a lot of amazing pictures. The tour itself was amazing but with Mohammed Salah, there was never a boring moment, highly recommend.

It was just an amazing trip over all. Alexandria has so much Roman culture, and is a nice change up from Cairo. Get Mohamed esshak as your driver! He was a wonderful man, caring with my son, knew where to eat lunch and much much more.
