Day by Day Itinerary

After meeting your guide to start your day, you will have an easy and comfortable drive for 3 hours to Alexandria in an air-conditioned vehicle.

The coastal city was founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C.

The day tour of the city includes visits to the major attractions there such as the Catacomb’; the Fort of Qaitbay and the modern library of the city.

With your private tour guide, discover the impressive mixture between Egyptian art, architecture, and burial traditions with the Roman ones through your visit to the Catacomb of Kom El Shoqafa. A 1900-year-old Roman subterranean tomb where cremated and mummified bodies were preserved.  Enjoy the best view over the city and the sea from the Fort of Qaitbay, a 15th fort built on top of the original location of the Lighthouse that was gone. The fort was meant to protect the Eastern harbor of the city.

Moving to the modern library, you will spend some time touring that huge and modern library that was built as a revival of the ancient one. During the day tour, you will have free time to consider the seafood and cafe culture that the city is famous for a long time ago.

At all the sites, you visit, your tour guide will provide all the information and history of each place. The tour can be easily customized by adding more sites.
