We had a wonderful day with Mohamed and his driver in Alexandria. They showed us many historic sites and tailored the tour to our wishes. The entire day was very interesting as Mohamed explained us a lot about the history of Alexandria and Egypt as well as what it‘s like to live in Alexandria today. He also took us to a very delicious local restaurant for lunch. Very recommendable!!

Fantastic trip to Alexandria, Mohammed was a great guide. He is very knowledgable on Alexandria and it's history. Hiring him allowed me to get so much more out of this trip and I learned more than I expected. I would definitely hire him again.

The tour started very well with pick-up at the hotel at the scheduled time. The driver was very polite and deserves a masters degree in heavy traffic driving.. I felt safe all the time, my guide was very accessible and opened to what were my interests. I had all the time I wanted to browse in the Library of Alexandria, which was my first goal on this trip, and she helped me with my request to the librarians. we went also to the Montaza Gardens, the Fort, St-Mark church and Abu al Abbas mosque and finished with the women market just before the rain! our guide is very well informed and adapted the tour to my pace. I thank him and Wali very much for giving me this great experience. I could not be happier and highly recommend them! I look forward to my upcoming trip
