As a solo traveler, I was hesitant to join a group tour, but the positive reviews convinced me to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! The tour was well-organized and catered to both solo travelers and groups. The guides were attentive and made sure everyone felt included. I made new friends along the way, and we had a blast exploring Alexandria’s fascinating landmarks. I particularly enjoyed the visit to the Serapeum, an ancient underground temple complex. The tour was a great value for money, and I would definitely recommend it to other solo travelers seeking an enriching experience in Egypt.

What a fantastic trip! I booked the Overnight Tour to Alexandria as a solo traveler, and it exceeded all my expectations. Our guide, Hana, was not only informative but also made the tour fun. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina was a marvel of modern architecture, and I couldn’t believe I was standing in a place with so much historical significance. A must-do tour for history and culture enthusiasts!
