/ Al Alamein Day Tour from Alexandria
Tour departs from Alexandria hotels or port areas.
Tour returns to the original point of departure
Al-Alamein is a coastal town in the Northwest of Egypt, about 63 miles (110 km) west of Alexandria. The desert of this town witnessed The Battle of El Alamein, which marked the culmination of the World War II North African campaign between the British Empire and the German-Italian army. Your Egypt Tours offers a day excursion to this town to visit the important attractions there.
Upon meeting your guide at your Alexandria hotel, a drive of 90 minutes and you will start to visit the attractions including the Al Alamein military museum, which houses a large collection of uniforms, armed vehicles, and weaponry that belong to the different parties. It provides an insight into the 1942 battle, which has since been labeled a turning point in the war. The museum is located close to the main El Alamein Battlefield. Very close to the museum, you will visit the cemetery of the Commonwealth. This is the burial place of 7,240 Commonwealth soldiers. Enjoy the sublime atmosphere and the beautifully organized gravesite.
A short drive on the main road, you will enjoy the sea view with its different blue degrees, and then you will visit both the German and Italian cemeteries. Your Egyptologist guide will accompany you to all the sites to explain everything in detail, the famous figures of the battles such as Rommel, Bernard Montgomery, and the conflict between the Allies and the Axis forces.
You will have a lunch meal during the tour before going back to Alexandria.

Personal tour to El Alamein and historical sights of Alexandria
My guide, Mamdouh and driver, Afshan, arrived at my hotel bang on 8am, as arranged. Transport was a new, comfortable minibus with air con. I had an extremely interesting day in El Alamein and Mamdouh, with his excellent English, was very knowledgeable. The following day I had a tour of the Catacombs, the Citadel, the Pompey temple and the Roman amphitheater. Mamdouh is an expert in Egyptian history and his comments certainly enhanced my visits. Finally, we had lunch at Kadoura, one of the best fish restaurants in the city where you choose the fish and seafood, caught that day that you want to order. Overall, an excellent experience and I highly recommend this company.
