I'm Rasha, a passionate licensed tour guide with years of experience in the field, who love to show the beauty of her country to visitors from around the world. I am a pretty flexible person who loves to adjust the tour according to my clients' needs. I have also worked with different travel agencies, but here with your help and support, I definitely have the power to personally show how much I love what I do, away from how most travel companies usually perform their tours. You can say that I choose to do tours as I see them, of course, taking in mind all the major sightseeing spots, but also with an addition of my taste to the experience of " live like a local", in order not only to add knowledge, but also joy to my clients. I can offer my tours both in English, German and French. I will be happy to live the experience with you. Tours are offered either by me or by some other trusted guides. N.B:- kindly make sure you book at least 10 hours before Tour start time,that would be great & you can contact me if you have furthur inquires..

We asked Rasha to do a private walking tour of Alexandria for 2 of us. She listened to our varied requests and put together a fantastic day for us involving a mix of ancient sights, modern history & architecture, shopping in the souks (she helped me buy wonderful Egyptian spices from a lovely old fashioned shop) and coffee & cake at a classic cafe. It felt like a friend showing us round Alexandria. Can't wait to return and repeat the very special experience. She was patient, charming and intelligent and answered many questions about both Alexandria and Egyptian life. Highly recommend.

Rasha was so responsive to our requests & easy to communicate with. She took us on a walking tour through the new & old downtown of beautiful Alexandria. We enjoyed chatting about current life & the locals. An enjoyable morning. Thanks Rasha for your hospitality & being kind to us. Appreciated!

The best free tour I've been on so far. Karim has taken care of everything, even driving us to the different locations. His explanations were clear, and undoubtedly he has a lot of experience giving such tours. I totally recommend this tour with him. As he says to all his colleagues, he does is "the best guide in Alexandria".
