Tour with Eriny is highly recommended!! Specially if you want to see key spots and you have no much time. She is very professional and will answer all your questions about this amazing city. We also chose to visit official papyrus store to buy some of them (be aware prices are in $ not in EGP)

Eriny accepted to do the tour only with me an off-season day!! She was very kind, fully professional and has deep knowledge of egyptian history!! She explained me in detail all the places we visited, their history and also knew to reply at all of my questions!! In addition, after the tour finished she kept contacting me to ask if I had any problem or need any information during my stay in Alexandria, as I was a solo traveler!! Thank you Eriny!! ☺️🤗

Amazing tour and guide. Eriny had so much knowledge and was very informative, lots of topics covered. She also did an extra tour for me the following day as she had nothing planned and that was great too. Also recommended some great places to eat. Definitely worth doing the tours!!!
