Tour Itinerary

Take a fascinating private tour to Alexandria from Cairo in the company of your Egyptologist guide. You will be picked up by your Egyptologist guide from your hotel and drive to Alexandria (a 3-hour drive). As this is a private tour, you can determine the amount of time you will spend at each site you visit.

 

The second-largest city in Egypt, Alexandria has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern and is famous for its Roman remains. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 312 B.C. and was the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt. Your first stop in this historic city is the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, a Roman burial site that reveals the merging of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture. Descend below ground to visit the tomb and Caracalla Hall. Above ground, continue to Pompey's Pillar, an 82-foot (25-meter) granite column built to honor Emperor Diocletian, who freed the besieged city and brought food to its starving people. Continuing the Roman theme, your guide will next show you the Roman amphitheater, possibly the best-preserved Roman site in Egypt. The site also includes the remains of a Roman street and homes. After lunch (for an additional cost), you will visit the famous Alexandria Library.

 

In contrast to the ancient architecture found throughout Egypt, this Norwegian-designed building is a striking piece of modern design. A copy of every book published worldwide is kept in the library, making it one of the great literary sites in the world. The library also houses several exhibitions relating to the history of Egypt and a display of rare antique books (for an additional cost). After the conclusion of your tour, you will return to Cairo.

 

Please Note: The library of Alexandria is closed on Fridays and Saturdays.

One day in Cairo may not be enough to experience everything in Cairo, but it is more than enough to learn about the popular attractions in Cairo such as the Egyptian Museum. You can find a lot of attractions if you have a well-thought-out itinerary and the desire to explore.

You can certainly enjoy Cairo day tours on your own, but having a tour guide around will be more beneficial because they can teach you about the background information and history of each Cairo attraction. Whatever mode of transportation you pick when visiting Cairo, be ready for crowds. Taxis and metro tickets are reasonably priced, as are both public and private tour buses.

Begin your day tour in Cairo with popular attractions such as the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, Memphis, and Dahsour, finish the attractions of Giza day tours then move to the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, and end your day with a shopping tour in Khan El Khalili.

Cairo is one of the largest cities in the world, and the second largest in Africa by population. You could tour the city for weeks, but we suggest spending at least 3 days in Cairo on your first visit.

Yes, a day trip to Alexandria from Cairo is worth it, but as others have said, it’s going to take most of the day to visit most popular attractions in Alexandria day tours such as Qaitbay Citadel, Lighthouse, Catcombos of Kom El Shoqafa, and Alexandria Library.

What They Say about Us

Our Happy Customers

Travel has helped us to understand the meaning of life and it has helped us become better people. Each time we travel, we see the world with new eyes.

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.

I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention

Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
