Pickup was timely and both our driver (Moody) and our guide (Doma) were both in constant contact before pickup to ensure a smooth tour. After about a 3-3.5 hour drive from Cairo to Alexandria, we picked up our guide and headed to the first stop, the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa. This site is policed and they do not allow cameras inside, so make sure to leave this in the car. However, your phone is allowed… We spent about 45-60 minutes exploring the Catacombs which were really interesting since there is Roman, Greek and Egyptian heritage inside! Next we drove to Pompey’s Pillar where Doma provided us with background on the site prior to walking around. He grew up in the area so he knows a lot about the site. Our next stop was the breathtaking Roman Amphitheater of Dom El-Deka. Make sure you stand in the middle of the amphitheater and listen to how your voice echoes, but only while standing directly on the circle. Here we spent about an hour roaming around the site. We did a quick stop by
An awesome experience from the beginning to the end. My driver Fares was awesome. Kept me entertained and well informed along the way to Alexandria from Cairo. My tour guide Hiba was knowledgeable and took pictures of me through out the tour. Glad I took this trip to Alexandria from Cairo. From the being to the end it was great.
The tour was well planned through various parts of the city, in all they explained the history to us. They even offered us to see other places of our choice. The transport was perfect, a very large and comfortable van for the trip since we came from Cairo.
Best trip we could have ever asked for. Just ask for Eslam, best tour guide with amazing english and historical skills, made the trip so funny and exciting! The driver was also really good kind and professional. Eslam, greetings from your greek brothers!
It was a very nice day trip with interesting sights. A good driver and a very nice and competent tour guide accompanied me.
