Why we love Alexandria.
The Coastal city of Alexandria is the second-most populated city in Egypt after Cairo. As the capital of Egypt for one thousand years in the past, Alexandria has its distinguished character among Egyptian cities. It is best known for its long Greek and Roman history and blend of many cultures.
Spending a day tour in Alexandria is the best way to know the taste and atmosphere of a Mediterranean city in Egypt and how different it is from other cities like Cairo, Luxor or Aswan. Alexandria was named after its founder Alexander the Great of Macedonia in 332 B.C.
During the Greek era, the city was the center of culture in the region; it had the biggest library in the world and it had one of the wonders of the world, the Lighthouse of Alexandria and much more.
After meeting your guide to start your day, you will have an Easy and comfortable drive for 3 hours from Cairo in an air-conditioned vehicle.
The day tour to 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 years 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 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 long time ago.
In all the sites, you visit, your tour guide will provide with all the information and history of each place. The tour can be easily customized by adding more sites.
At the end of the tour, you will drive back to Cairo.

Day trip to Alexandria
We traveled as two couples in a private van all to ourselves, which was nice as we could do everything on our own time. Our tour guide was Mamdouh and he did an amazing job of taking our tour. Very knowledgeable having taken the tours for many years, funny and so friendly. Made us feel very safe too! Well worth the money and would definitely recommend choosing 'Your Egypt tours' when choosing your tour company in Egypt!!
Great tour with really helpful and friendly guide!
We just completed a tour to Alexandria today with our excellent guide Mamdouh. I do not usually write reviews but felt that this was one of those times it was required. We were picked up from our hotel at exactly the time that was agreed. Mamdouh was great as he gave us really useful and insightful information about the history of Egypt in generally and more specifically Alexandria. The sites we visited were interesting. He recommended an excellent fish restaurant where we picked our fresh fish that was cooked on the spot. Best seafood I have had in ages and is was at a great price (probably because of Mamdouh's local connections). All and all-great tour and would fully recommend this to anyone.

Did the day trip to Alexandria with an exceedingly knowledgeable girl named Shamiaa. Was amazing! She was so friendly it felt like we had known each other for years, making it so much easier on a solo traveler!
