What to expect
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.

WWII battle site was worth it.
Dec 2018
While this site was not the reason for visiting Alexandria, I decided to take a taxi to this place as an interesting WWII battle site. I was not disappoined by either the museum or the British cemetery there. I had been to many WWII sites in Europe (my father was wounded twice, from Omaha Beach to Bastogne) and the trip along the coast heading West was also quite nice. I worked out a deal with a cab driver to get me there. If you go, be sure and do the same -- be clear on price before getting into the taxi. The battle turned the tide in the battle for North Africa during the war. While staying in Alexandria (at the Hotel Triumph), I couldn't help but think that some of the British soldiers may have stayed in that same hotel before the battle. If you have an interest in history, this trip is well worth your time. (Also, I was there in Nov. 2018 but the time line below did not include it).
