El Alamein Private Day Trip from Alexandria
  • El Alamein Private Day Trip from Alexandria

    Visit the site of one of World War II's defining battles, El Alamein, on a private tour with a qualified historian from Alexandria. This day trip, by air-conditioned private vehicle, includes visits to the military museum, the Commonwealth cemetery and Italian and German cemeteries, as well as an in-depth account of the battle and the generals behind it.

    Your private guide, a trained historian, will collect you from your Alexandria hotel or ship at 7am, for the scenic drive west along Egypt's Mediterranean coast to the site of one of the most costly battles of World War II, El Alamein.

    It was here that British and Commonwealth forces halted the advance of General Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps into Egypt in 1942, claiming the lives of tens of thousands of men. Your first stop will be the military museum where four main halls represent the countries that participated in the battle, and a joint hall exhibits weapons and tanks. Here, you have an opportunity to view a series of paintings representing the battle and discover the role Egypt played during the war.

    Your next stop will be the cemeteries. The famous Commonwealth cemetery, entered by the Alamein Memorial, contains the graves of soldiers from many nations who fought on the British side in the Western Desert Campaign as well as monuments commemorating New Zealand, Australian, and South African forces. You'll also make a visit to the Italian and German cemeteries before returning to your ship or hotel in Alexandria.

      We had a lovely time with our guide Shereen and driver Simon! They took us through all the sites we were interested in, Shereen giving interesting and thoughtful comments the whole way! They also helped us make lunch arrangements and offered to wait to shepherd us back to our hotel afterward, going above and beyond. They were so great, we requested them a second time for a tour of Alexandria, and again had a wonderful experience. We cannot recommend them enough!

      Terrific guide, an Alexandria local, who was obviously extremely proud of the region.
      Only disappointment being the Museum was closed on this particular occasion due to a State visit. However our guide was more than willing to incorporate other sites of interest to make amends.

        Calificación General: 8/10
