Tour was great, I enjoyed it!
It was a great day tour to this coastal city in a private car, highlights were Roman Catacombs and Pompey's Pillar. Guide Asherf provided by Excursion Cairo Day Tour was very experienced and knowledgeable. The drive was good, beautiful country side. Though due to bad weather we could not visit Citadel. Worth visiting if you have extra day in hand.
