What To Expect

El Alamein War Museum
This museum is an excellent introduction to the North African campaigns of WWII, including the Battle of El Alamein. The museum has separate halls dedicated to the four main countries involved in the war: Great Britain, Italy, Germany and Egypt. Another hall contains collections of memorabilia, uniforms, photos and maps. On display outside is a range of tanks and artillery from the battlefield.

El Alamein War Cemetery
The Commonwealth War Cemetery is a haunting place where more than 7240 tombstones stand in regimented rows between beautifully tended desert plants. Most of the Commonwealth soldiers who lie here died in the Battle of El Alamein at the end of October 1942 and in the period immediately before that. As you enter, a separate memorial commemorating the Australian contingent is to your right. The cemetery is about 1km east of El Alamein's War Museum.

Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa
The necropolis consists of a series of Alexandrian tombs, statues and archaeological objects of the Pharaonic funeral cult with Hellenistic and early Imperial Roman influences. Due to the time period, many of the features of the catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa merge Roman, Greek and Egyptian cultural points; some statues are Egyptian in style, yet bear Roman clothes and hair style whilst other features share a similar style. A circular staircase, which was often used to transport deceased bodies down the middle of it, leads down into the tombs that were tunneled into the bedrock during the age of the Antonine emperors (2nd century AD).[1] The facility was then used as a burial chamber from the 2nd century to the 4th century, before being rediscovered in 1900 when a donkey accidentally fell into the access shaft. To date, three sarcophagi have been found, along with other human and animal remains which were added later. It is believed that the catacombs were only intended for a single family, but it is unclear why the site was expanded in order to house numerous other individuals.

Bibliotheca Alexandrina
The Great Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt, was one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. The Library was part of a larger research institution called the Mouseion, which was dedicated to the Muses, the nine goddesses of the arts.[10] The idea of a universal library in Alexandria may have been proposed by Demetrius of Phalerum, an exiled Athenian statesman living in Alexandria, to Ptolemy I Soter, who may have established plans for the Library, but the Library itself was probably not built until the reign of his son Ptolemy II Philadelphus. The Library quickly acquired a large number of papyrus scrolls, due largely to the Ptolemaic kings' aggressive and well-funded policies for procuring texts. It is unknown precisely how many such scrolls were housed at any given time, but estimates range from 40,000 to 400,000 at its height.

Powerful Experience - Very Unique
David_W, 15-07-2022
A truly moving and amazing experience. Mousaffa, our guide along with the driver, Iman were a wonderful team to spend the day with. Mousaffa was so very kind and is very knowledgeable about anything and everything experienced. We were able to move along at our own pace with absolutely no rush. We got back to Cairo quite late, but that was only because Mousaffa accommodated our every wish along the way, spending a little extra time at places we wanted to go and pictures of “extras” along the way. Dinner at the end was a perfect way to end the day on Alexandria overlooking the site of the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
In our journey throughout Egypt...
Stephen H, 11-04-2018

In our journey throughout Egypt, this trip was one of the best. We had a slight delay for our start on our side, not the guides but our guide, Mohamed Sheta. The great thing about this tour is that you will travel through time the end of ancient Egypt through to wow and now of Alexandria. Mohamed shared many wonderful insights to his Egypt and our driver kept us on track, on pace and through the crazy Egyptian traffic. Lunch was at a very nice restaurant on the Mediterranean sea for our dining view pleasure. Throughout the adventure Mohamed kept us engaged and there was plenty of laughter had this day. I had also asked, for s drive by to the new hard rock in Cairo on the way back as my niece is a pin collector and the café had just opened. This too was accommodated and I am very thankful for the allowance. I cannot recommend this tour enough, nor Mohamed. I would also say, that you need to make Mohamed share some of his pictures of his wife's cakes....She has an incredible skill and the it just adds to the WOW factor of this tour!
