About
Discover the legendary city of Alexandrian on a full-day tour from Cairo, and discover the traces of ancient Egyptians and Roman armies. Descend into the catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa to see fascinating artworks that blend two cultures, visit Pompey’s Pillar, then take in views from the 15th-century fortifications at the Citadel of Quaitbay, a fortress built on the site of Alexandria’s ancient lighthouse. Explore the city’s new library at your own pace — it’s a tribute to the library that burned in antiquity — then enjoy lunch before returning to Cairo.

On my last 2 days of my Egypt experience I received a private tour of museums and Alexandria from my guide Mahmoud. After all the amazing things I saw during my week in Egypt I was certain the most spectacular of adventures were behind me. I was wrong however. My adventure remained extremely exciting and profound right up until I arrived at the airport to leave. Mahmoud could not have been more accommodating. More importantly he has an absolute fountain of knowledge that he can relay effortlessly due to his obvious love of his country and its history. It was a wonderful experience and I’m very happy to have met him. I think Mahmoud is a good man and I can recommend with no hesitation that you book a tour with Aly of Egypt Tours. Have fun!

Although my arrangement on short notice (one day in advance) Mahmoud, my tour guide, made it easily possible for an individual programme for a solo pax and arranged a driver in a perfectly conditioned car.
Communication was permanently given and perfect. Mahmoud was competent and excellent in explaining also other aspects of Egypt.
The tour itself was packed with the landmarks of Alexandria. Highlights were the old citadel and modern library of Alexandria.
All in all I received great impressions on people and landscape in a short time frame.

Me and my husband did the day tour in Alexandria and Omar was an amazing guide! We had specific places to visit and Omar helped us to make the best way to do all the places in time. The tour started early in the mourning, Omar always very kind, shared with us his sandwich during our drive from Cairo to Alexandria. He knows a lot of History and it's very nice to talk with him about living in Egypt. He showed us a very good place to drink a coffe and an amazing place to eat fresh and delicious sea food with the view of the ocean! In every place we went people seem to like him a lot! He is very educated, king and generous ! Next time in Egypt we will do the tours with him! Highly recommended !

As a solo female traveler in Egypt or anywhere, safety is always my primary concern. However, my full day trip to Alexandria was delightful! Not only was my private driver Abdelfattah professional, but he was kind, smart and observant. He drove me in safety to destinations both on and off my list, recommending restaurants and attractions that suited my desires. When we visited a local market and drew too much attention, he swiftly whisked me out of the area out of concern for my safety and potential for petty crime. I wanted to buy a local dress and he personally accompanied me to a place outside of the touristy area and acted as my translator. As excited as i am about touring, i am just as eager to meet my driver since they really set the tone for the day and i can 100% recommend Abdelfattah and his services!

We decided to book three days in Cairo and Alexandria with Cairo Tours , after we found that they offer the lowest prices compared to other travel companies,
The first day included a visit to the Pyramids of Giza as well as Saqqara and Dahshour, the tour guide explained to us the stages of the development of the construction of the pyramids of the ancient Egyptians and how it reached the famous residual form in the Pyramids of Giza
On a quick tour of one of the papyrus schools, we had the most wonderful experience and live demonstration of a millennium-long industry
On the second day our trip to the Egyptian Museum in the center of the capital and the effects of the Coptic and Islamic period, information we hear for the first time
On the third day our trip to the Greek city of Alexandria, the road is a little tired about three hours by car, but it is a good road and the trip is worth the road
The guide was very punctual and the cars were all modern. As for the food, I advise you to choose local food, very delicious
