Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria is a port city on the Egyptian Mediterranean coast, once an ancient center of learning. Skip the hassle of arranging your own transportation and get an in-depth peek at the storied seaside city on this convenient day tour from Cairo or Giza, which covers ruins, such as the Roman Theater, as well as the 21st-century Bibliotheca Alexandrina.

What to Expect

Few tourists in Egypt venture to Alexandria, a legendary port city on the Mediterranean coast founded by Alexander the Great. During this convenient day tour with hotel transfer from Cairo or Giza, discover under-the-radar attractions of one of antiquity’s most prosperous cities, once known for its massive library, which held 500,000 books, and the Pharos of Alexandria, the most famous lighthouse of the ancient world.

Those sights now only exist in legend, but you’ll get a chance to explore other ancient ruins that have remained standing, such as the Roman Theater, and medieval marvels, including the Catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa. After a tasty lunch in a local restaurant, see the modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina, a library built to commemorate Alexandria’s ancient center of knowledge. Take a stroll along the Corniche, a historic waterfront promenade, before private transfer back to your hotel.

Great Day Tour of Alexandria

This is a great tour of Alexandria that hits all the highlights. Our tour guide Salem was great. He answered our questions and provided history of all the places we visited. Our driver Ahmed navigated the busy streets like a pro. I’d recommend this tour.

The Catacombs were the best

We booked this tour as part of our honeymoon. The first stop was the Catacombs. It was definitely worth it but we felt our guide who was very knowledgeable could have been nicer. She seemed like she was in a great mood at first but...More

We were back in Cairo between 5-6 pm. You have the freedom to spend as much time as you want at each stop, so could be a bit earlier or later. We had time to catch the 7 pm light & sound show at pyramids.

The vegetarian option is grape leaves, vegetables, french fries and rice. Also you get the appetizer of some naan type bread and dips (all veg).

I didn’t see the menu as it was a set lunch but I’m sure something can be arranged. Best check with the tour operator as I’m sure they can accomodate the request.
