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:- please note to contact me enough time ( at least 12 hours) before your tour day .that would be great!

About the Tour

This historic walking tour of the old downtown of Alexandria, founded by Alexander in 332 BC, will let you have a chance to encounter the must see spots, that other regular itinerary won't give you the chance to see.
We will get to visit the most important historic spots in town for archeology lovers, who care a lot about history and sightseeing iconic places ( i.e:- the Catacombs, Roman Amphitheatre, the fort, the old place of the lighthouse and others) plus, a walk in the old part of the city to get to see the local historical architecture, which has Baroque-style designs and Italian and French-style properties.

It was a great tour! With passion and knowledge, not only from books but from local life also. Rasha showed me must see places like Alexandria Bibliothek, catacumbs, theater. Told where to eat local food. She knows much about Alexandrian and Egyptian history, both ancient, medieval and modern. The tour took 4,5 hour in total which was enough not only to see sighst but to actually visit them and see those underground burials or manuscrypts in Bibliothek. I can only highly recomend it for anyone visiting Alexandria.

My tour of Alexandria with Rasha was super fun and great overall! She was very diligent keeping in touch and confirming all details prior to meeting. Once we met, she made sure to find out my expectations and interests and tailored the tour to meet them. We spent a few hours together (which were lovely) and Rasha really did her best to show me the most interesting parts of Alexandria and also be aware of my time. Overall, I was very happy with the tour and Rasha and strongly recommend anyone visiting Alexandria (which you should!) to take her tour, it is well worth it! Thanks Rasha!

Response from Rasha
