Went on a private tour of the El Alamein museum & cemetery. Being a WWII history buff I knew this was something I wanted to see. My private guide with Emo Tours and driver Newine and Mohamed (respectively) did a great job of giving me background information about the battle and how close the men who fought here were (both...

Came here with "On the Go" tours en route to Siwa. There are 3 war cemeteries in El Alamein, the Allied being the most visited. The Italian and German cemeteries are across town. We didn't have time to visit there. No visible signs in English leading to the Cemetery, one guard on duty. Tranquility for those resting there. Lots of... More

I visited this cemetery with my Dad and we both found it very moving. The cemetery is surprisingly beautiful and is a fitting memorial to so many young lives lost.

We went to this war cemetery as it was where a family member had actually been, it was a fantastic place to see and very well done. It was a different time in war back then, they on both sides were gentleman for example a trust on Christmas day. There are still today a lot of unexploded mines around so... More

The burial grounds are clean, well maintained and the personnel are very helpful It was wonderfully strange to make a connection to the past by finding the grave of a family member. If you go and visit in summertime, make sure to take a hat. it is also very difficult in the sharp sunlight to see your camera/phone screen when... More

If you are visiting Alexandria then the 100 km trip to the war memorial at El Alamein is well worth the effort. It provides a sobering reminder of just how many young men from numerous countries gave their lives for their country so that we may enjoy the lifestyle we presently have. Mind you it is a pity that there... More

We were here in November 2012 travelling from Alexandria on a day trip. In silence I could recall a politician's statement about addressing international conflict by going to war, he said, ' While there is great danger of action, the danger of inaction is far greater.' This place represents the consequence and the cost of war and respect and honour... More

I can rarely be deeply impressed. But here, surrounded by so many lives unlived, so many unborn descendants, so many mauve flowers among the graves and Unknown Soldiers waiting in eternity for someone to tell them their names, I was unable to repress my hate against crazy politicians ever born on this world. Brother traveler running along seashore … stop... More
