Private Tour: Alexandria from Cairo

Private tour in Cairo

Tour Price : 100 US$ per person Duration : 10 hours (approx.) Languages: English

If you’ve chosen Cairo as your main destination for Egypt this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t visit other major destinations in a convenient fashion. With this tour you can enjoy a comfortable stay in Cairo, while having the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the Mediterranean capital of the country, which is Alexandria. This city is certainly worth exploring, as it doesn’t even look anything like the rest of the country, bearing a very distinct atmosphere to it.

Your Egypt private guide will meet you at your Cairo hotel and take you to Alexandria with a private air-conditioned minivan. Once there, we’ll start our journey through the numerous sites this marvelous city has to offer. Known for its peculiar aura, Alexandria was always different from the other cities of Egypt because it was incepted by Alexander the Great much later than most of the ancient cities, and always had a strong influence from Greece and then Rome. This is particularly seen in the architecture of the older parts of the city and of course the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, which feature a pronounce blend of Egyptian and Greco-Roman styles in the way the tombstones and statues were made. Nearby, we’ll visit the Pompey’s Pillar, erected to praise Emperor Diocletian.
We’ll also visit the place where the famous Library of Alexandria once stood, and its modern reincarnation nearby. And we’ll stop by the site where the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria used to stay before collapsing into the sea after a series of earthquakes that ruined the building more than a thousand years ago. 
This tour will focus on the most prominent attractions of the Mediterranean capital of Egypt and provide a lot of fascinating information through your trustful guide. Once the tour is over you’ll be driven back to Cairo in the evening.
