Overview

While you are in Cairo, why not consider taking a trip to visit the beautiful city of Alexandria. Take in Pompey’s Pillar the only known free-standing column. View the ruins of a Roman Temple.

Our Reflections guide will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo by A/C vehicle and transfer you to Alexandria.

Then take a drive to visit the Catacombs, which is the largest Roman Cemetery consisting of three levels cut into the rock.

After lunch, journey on to see Qaitbay Citadel, which was built on the site of the ancient pharaohs. You will also see the lighthouse of Alexandria, which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

The Egyptian history come alive. We visited the spectacular library, the interesting catacombs, the citadel overlooking the oceanand Pompey's Pillar, ending with an excellent lunch with sea view restaurant. The drive to and from Alexandria as well as between the different landmarks was interesting in itself, and very safe and comfortable. Well worth it! The history and sights are incredible. Ahmed was the BEST guide we had our entire trip.

Had a great tour of Alexandria with Mr. Eshaq He and the driver picked us up right on time from the hotel. Everywhere we visited was empty because we arrived early which was a definite plus. I would definitely recommend adding a day trip to Alexandria to your Egypt itinerary!

This is a must trip if you visiting Egypt. Alexandria was fascinating visiting catacombs, Citadel and Roman amphitheater. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful city and kept us entertained and informed all the time. Our driver expertly drove us around safely even with the narrow streets and traffic. Highly recommended.

Darwish was very knowledgeable plus passionate about his work and he gave us an interesting overview of each attraction that he was going to take us to while driving to Alexandria.We visited The Catacombs, Pompay's Piller, The Citadel and the Library of Alexandria.
