Perfect trip Toda nuestra estancia en Egipto fue increíble gracias a Travel Joy. Se aseguraron de que mi mamá y yo pasáramos los mejores 12 días recorriendo Cairo, Aswan, Luxor y Hurghada. Kero y Emily estuvieron siempre pendientes de que todo saliera bien y que la coordinación del viaje fuera excelente! Además nos ayudaron con todas las reservas y con cada favor que les pedimos durante nuestra estadía. No podemos estar más felices de haber tenido a Mito y a Mohamed como nuestros guías. Hablan excelente español y contestaron todas nuestras preguntas acerca de los templos. Sin duda regresaremos a Egipto y volveremos a escoger a Travel Joy como nuestro host. Nos vamos muy contentas y sintiéndonos como si hubiéramos estado con amigos estos días.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.

More About

Private Day Tour To El Alamein From Alexandria

Exploring the Strategic Battlefield of El Alamein

The dusty plains outside the Mediterranean port of El Alamein were the site of one of the most pivotal battles of WWII. Here, Allied and Axis forces engaged in maneuvering and hard fighting that would swing the tide in North Africa. On this comprehensive private tour from Alexandria, delve into the history, strategy and human experience of the Battle of El Alamein through premier heritage institutions and moving memorial sites. Gain new perspectives guided by expert local knowledge alongside like-minded history enthusiasts.

The Museum for Military History and Equipment

The Military Museum at Al Alamein provides visitors with an intriguing look at the weapons, vehicles and artifacts that tell the story of the famous confrontation. Upon arriving, your guide will provide strategic context before diving into numerous gallery halls chronicling the remarkable clash. Here admire restored tanks like the German Panzers and British Crusaders that dueled across the open plains. Peruse artillery pieces like the feared German 88mm gun and examine fully geared uniforms that bring the time period to life. Detailed textual exhibits also recount key decisions by Montgomery and Rommel that impacted battlefield movements. The museum offers a truly immersive introduction before continuing explorations.

A Reflective Lunch at the Coast

After absorbing rich military history, relax over a tasty Mediterranean-style lunch while taking in stunning ocean views. Sample authentic Egyptian cuisine served at a charming local eatery along the northern coastline. Revitalize whilst discussing new learnings with fellow travelers during this welcome respite. Your expert guide is also on hand to answer any additional queries before setting out again into El Alamein’s hallowed sands. With full hearts and stomachs, continue honoring sacrifices made in this very region over 80 years ago.

Commonwealth Military Cemetery

Situated on a scenic peninsula overlooking the glistening sea lies perhaps the tour’s most poignant destination – the El Alamein War Cemetery. Located near the original battle lines, this somber site is the final resting place for over 7,000 Commonwealth servicemen who gave their lives here between July 1942 to May 1943. Walk respectfully amongst precisely aligned marble headstones, each one marking an individual fateful loss. Small personal touches like treasured family photos and regimental badges bring an intimate sense of the fallen’s identities. A memorial plaque also names thousands of others whose remains were never recovered from the battlefield. Linger in peaceful reflection taking in insights shared by your expert guide.

Returning with Fresh Perspectives

All too soon, your illuminating day journey through this seminal WW2 location comes to an end. However, the new understanding and perspectives you have gained will linger long after bidding farewell to your knowledgeable tour leader. Perhaps remnants of the immense strategic struggle waged across these lands under the hot sun will also remain imprinted in memory. Or maybe the human toll, evident at the immaculately maintained cemetery, left the deepest impression. Back within the bustling port city of Alexandria, take solace that through organized educational tours, the valiant sacrifices at Alamein are suitably honored and never forgotten. Till the next time – your hosts at Cairo Private Tours hope to welcome you once more!
