Experience the Greatness of a City When on a Private Tour of Alexandria

You can experience the greatness of this city on a private tour of Alexandria, a city founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BCE.

Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt and has the largest Seaport. There is no other city in Egypt that can match the rich history found here and the legends!

Alexander the Great was the beginning and his successors Ptolemy I and II continued to make history. Ptolemy was responsible for the creation of the Library at Alexandria which was like a university of its time and where Euclid and Archimedes taught.

They also had the Lighthouse of Antiquity built on the Island of Pharos at the entrance to Alexandria’s harbour. This was to become one of the Seven Wonders of the World until the 12th century. A 15th-century fort was built from its ruins and that still stands today.

There is much more to be told of the history here that includes stories of Cleopatra, all of which you can find out on excellent guided tours of museums and landmarks in Alexandria
