Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in Cairo and accompany you on your breathtaking from Cairo to Alexandria day trip. You will first visit the Pompey's Pillar. It was built in honor of the Emperor Diocletian at the end of the 4th century and originally comes from the Temple of Serapis, which was an impressive structure that even competed with that of Soma and Caesarean.
You will then have the opportunity to visit the catacombs. These form the largest Roman cemetery, consisting of 3 levels of rock. Lunch will be offered at a local restaurant in Alexandria. Then the Qaitbay Citadel is waiting for you, built on the sites of the Old Pharaohs (lighthouse) and finally also the Bibliotheca of Alexandria. Finally, we will drive you back to your hotel in Cairo.

    We really loved this tour! Our tour guide, Ayman, knew a lot about the city and showed us the best spots. He made his story interesting to listen to! The drive is quite a bit but really worth it. On the way there we also stopped at a cafe, it was very nice.

    Our guide was just amazing and beautiful, she taught us a lot about the history of Alexandria and she was one of the best guides we had. I would have loved to go inside the actual library in this tour not just outside.

    Our guide and driver got us on time, a smooth ride to Alexandria, with a pit stop halfway through for breakfast. In Alexandria we visited the places promised by a pleasant account, as required, with a wealth of details about the places. Before returning we had a decent lunch in a restaurant with good food options.
