What an INCREDIBLE experience. Mohamed was our guide to Alexandria on November 3rd, 2021 and we could not have had anyone better! Not only was his English excellent, but he also went above and beyond to make the long trip from Cairo interesting and comfortable. He made sure we did what WE wanted to do as well as some of his recommendations for sights in Alexandria. We ended up going to the library of Alexandria and gazed over the manuscripts. Such a surreal and incredible experience. I highly recommend booking with this company as they lead you on a PRIVATE tour with just your group (ours was only 2 of us), do not hassle for a tip at the end, and take you to an AMAZING place to eat lunch! Ask for Mohammed, and you will not regret a thing! Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

A lot of walking...

A lot of walking definitely got my exercise for the day. My driver and guide were amazing, friendly, and welcoming!

Pleasant day in Alexandria

We had a lovely day in Alexandria, and Ahmed was great about telling us many things about Egypt and Alexandria. Only thing we didn’t get to do that we were supposed to be able to do was see the new library in Alexandria. We booked this tour on June 17, 2021, but were told that only so many tickets are available each day. I have trouble believing that booking over 2 months ahead in the off season isn’t enough to get tickets to see what is advertised that we paid for.
Another great day!

great experience! I was lucky to have Mimo as my guide for a 2nd time. I highly recommend this tour.
Alex day trip is a must in Egypt.

Unfortunately the day started off stressful as a miscommunication happened somehow between Viator and the Tour Company. My guide was never given my hotel pick up information until the morning of despite my calling Viator and messaging the Tour Company a few days before my tour confirming my details. I ended up getting picked up, after several frantic What’s App calls 1.5 hours late. After that stress, everything else went perfectly! My guide was amazing! He knew so much about Ancient Egypt, but was able to explain in a way I understood. The driver was skilled, always there with the car, letting us easily go from one destination to another. (Pack headphones for the drive to Alexandria) I felt safe traveling around as a solo female traveler. I do recommend this tour, but try to confirm your guide has your hotel information beforehand to avoid my frustrating start. Im not marking down my rating as the guide and drive did amazing and deserve recognition, just the office staff somehow dropped the ball.
Bustling town

Beach, lunch Should update travel locations. Lighthouse gone and library not open to public (100 persons)
Excellent day in Alexandria

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Mohamed Mahmoud, the guide, was the consummate professional. He ensured I felt comfortable on the trip by answering all my questions, offering water, snacks, and a wifi connection. He’s very knowledgeable and eager to help other. Other tour guides asked for his help at different sites, and he stopped to answer other tourists’ questions. The driver, Medhat, was very skillful and got us back safely. Overall, I recommend the tour.
Pleasant trip to Alexandria

Marwa our guide was a very pleasant and personable guide to have and easy to work with. Her knowledge and guiding could use a bit more indepth description of the areas and sites we visited. The driver however has a lot to be desired. He was quite rash especially on the return trip. Many a times he was looking down to where his cell phone was and reading while driving in heavy traffic. Lucnh was at a nice restaurant that had vegetarion food options as well.

Second ttempt with Let's Explore Eygpt and tbh, the only reason I booked with them again was because all the others were sold out. A good tour I guess if you're travelling with a group. I was solo so had to pay more and I don't feel like what I paid and what was offered matched. Like I didn't feel it was worth what I paid. The tour guide was okay. The library was underwhelming-not sure why it's famous-it's nice yes, but it's a library for crying out loud. I felt like my guide was rushing or maybe not as knowledgeable as other guides, for example, we got to one site after a group and we left before the group- I could hear the other guide really going into detail and taking them all over, not just specific points of interest. I couldn't really understand my guide ( didn't even catch his name) due to his accent (not his problem but mine) and he stayed in Alexandria afterwards and had the driver drive me back to Cairo which I thought was odd. No snacks or water provided like the tour mentioned, definitely no wifi. Not sure why they are presenting the tour with these additions if they are not certain every tour guide is equipped with these niceties.

Alexandria Day Tour
, Sep 2019
Pick up from Cairo by guide with air-con comfy vehicle and driver.. straight to Alexandria 2-1/2hrs. Guide Medhat lovely man, English speaking, historical info for sites visited (Library, citadel, temple, harbour, city). Great meal in restaurant overlooking harbour. Should probably have stayed overnight to experience a bit more of city (but my time schedule did not allow) Well organised Let's Explore Egypt...more than happy with your. Next time I would come when it's a bit cooler though... Phew!!!
