Not really customizable.

, Mar 2021
The trip was good because of the very nice guide and excellent driver, and the lunch at the restaurant that was very good. However, the company needs to clarify that the trip is not really customizable, because they usually do 4 stops, and it was not possible to add a fifth one. Also, they need to update the information on the trip, there was not a 2 hour stop at the Library because we couldn’t enter. It’s a long trip, so it would have been nice to have been able to see more places over there.

A very very poor experience

We have used your company extensively over the years and have always found our excursions to be a joyful experience. This was not by any stretch. Our guide was late to start which set us back on time. When we arrived at Alexandria while touring he not only couldnt answer our questions he was actually giving us misinformation. He told us the romans destroyed the lighthouse in 400 ad which i knew to be false. He didnt even know the history of the lighthouse which i find unacceptable. While that example is the most egregious it by no means was the only instance. He also made the driver take him on a personal stop which caused us an extra hour of travel time. When i noticed we had just taken a 45 minute circle so he could pick something up i asked him about it. He responded it was just a small circle and went silent. We had expressed at the beginning that we needed to be back early in order to change our flight in these trying times. He said we would be back at 4 at the latest. We arrived at 6. When we went to lunch he left us and ate by himself. The servers didnt speak english well at all which left us with an inability to convey what we wanted/needed. We also thought this was poorly done. He also stayed in Alexandria and left us with the driver who spoke spotty english at best. The driver did his best and was quite adept at his job. His name was ahmed and i dont think he was at fault for anything. We felt like the guide was using our excursion to fulfill his own personal needs which is not proper at all. The entire experience was quite bad. Our tour guide was named hima. I only express this so other travelers will not have the same experience. I am requesting a full refund.

Beauty on Egypt’s North Shore

This was a relaxing trip. We selected the Montaza Garden, Museum, and Library. We didn’t have time to add a 4th as the gardens are on the far East side of Alexandria. There was no WIFI in van as advertised nor snacks but water bottles were on hand. Mohamed, our guide, was very helpful in accommodating all our requests. We preferred missing a 4th destination to see the gardens. It really was the highlight of the tour. The serene atmosphere was welcome after the loudness of Cairo. The library was our second favorite. Lunch was provided at a time that worked for us. Very nice tour!

Great day trip to Alexandria

We were very pleased with our guide Mohammed and our driver Hany. Mohammed is very proud of his Egyptian heritage and demonstrates both with his excellent knowledge of Egyptian history and his effort to ensure we enjoyed our time with him. The driver Hany may be the best driver in all of Egypt and knows all the back streets in Alexandria and Cairo to save time. If you have the time to visit Alexandria, we recommend this tour. It was a good value for the price.

Medhat(Prince of Alexandria, Egypt) Amazing guy and proficient. He is very knowledgeable in history of Egypt. Thankyou to Let's Explore Egypt. Eslam is a wonderful driver, very friendly, and nice. Had lunch at the Mediterranean Fish Market Restaurant, in Alexandria, Egypt and the lunch was great. I was very happy when I visited Abo el abas mosque. Very beautiful mosque!

He was really nice

I went 11/18/2019. Our guide was super nice and friendly. He checked to see if we were good, and asked if we wanted to stop to get breakfast before starting our tour. He gave explanations even whilst between destinations and he asked if there was anything we wanted to do or see in particular at the destinations and beyond that when we had extra time.

Tour is very good but compared to other places in Egypt, no many remaining things to see

Tour is very good but compared to other places in Egypt, no many remaining things to see The Guide and driver are very nice. They don't push you in touristic shops like many other guides. Temples are almost fully destroyed (no much remaining), at the place of antique Lighthouse a nice middle age Castle, New librairy (nice but still a new building).

The guide was very knowledgable and the driver was careful and competent. Alexandria is an interesting city to visit. This tour was complete, in that the guide Mayada brought us to the catacombs, the museum, several sites and lunch. Good value.
