Adel was so good. We only expected him to stay a few hours, but he gave us all day. We got taxis and Ubers and he ordered us an Uber to take us to Fort Qaitby at the end of the day. We learned how cheap taxis are in Egypt which has stood us in good stead for the remainder of our time here. We also learned that we are only able to pay for admission to public buildings using a card, not cash! Adel told us in advance to bring our passports so we could enter St Michaels (well worth it), so great communication from start to end :-)

This should be labeled "A Day in the life of an Alexandrian". We walked all over Alexandria, but mostly through the neighborhoods that we NEVER would have gone by ourselves! We got to experience the non-tourist side of the city, including public minibuses, local neighborhoods, tourist sites and specialty foods. It was listed at 4 hours duration, but we were with him for 5 1/2 until we crumbled. He was still energetic and wanted to show us more, but we were exhausted. He treated us like family or good friends visiting his city. He's a warm and sweet individual. My only suggestion is do this tour in the morning, if possible, because it gets dark now at 5ish and sites close at 4-7. Definitely worthwhile!

I was the only one on the tour Adel Michel says he only books 2 people per group. We walked all over Alexandria. After walking 3.5 hours my feet were killing me, but the information given and places we visited wasn’t anything I saw on my own earlier in the day. We saw markets not normally seen by out of owners. Seeing the Roman wall and Alexander’s garden at the end was one of my highlights for the day. Very comprehensive tour. I just wish I had more money on me to give me for that quality of a tour.
