Meet your guide at your Alexandria hotel, and start the day at the New Library, a stunning modernist structure that celebrates the Alexandria library that was destroyed in ancient times. Continue to the site of the lighthouse that was once a wonder of the ancient world, then visit King Farouk’s palace, where the Montazah Gardens and elegant grounds look out towards the Mediterranean Sea. Hear dramatic stories from Egypt’s wartime history, when the king fled the city as overseas troops arrived.

Take a break for lunch in a restaurant with perfect sea views, then spend the afternoon exploring the city’s best ancient sites. Relive Roman imperial triumphs at Pompey’s Pillar, discover the remains of Alexandria’s ancient library, visit the Roman amphitheater, and explore an open air museum to see artifacts from archeological digs. Go underground in the 3rd-century catacombs that combine Greek, Roman and Egyptian art, and take in some of the city’s modern monuments and elegant corniche before returning to your hotel.

My fiance and I only had 2 days in Alexandria but thanks to this tour, I truly feel that we got a real feel for the beautiful city. Our guide, Kholoud, was one of the most knowledgeable guides I've ever had. She was welcoming, took time to take us through the history of each stop and gave us enough time to enjoy the sights on our own before heading out. Also, Kholoud is a phenomenal photographer. I've never seen my fiance hand over his phone so readily but thank goodness he did because we have some beautiful photos to remember Alexandria. It was truly a great experience so many thanks to Kholoud!

Kholoud was a perfect tour guide! She was very knowledgable about everything, including the perfect angles to take pictures from! She was very friendly and even baked me some traditional Egyptian desserts! The tour was great, especially the catacombs where there is much more to see than meets the eye! The tour concluded with a delicious lunch overlooking the beautiful sea!

My private tour of Alexandra was excellent. My guide, Nevine, was the best! It was nice having a female guide for a change. She took me to all the important sights and we had lunch at a fabulous restaurant with an amazing view. Enjoy every moment!

This was an absolutely awesome day made even better by my guide Kholoud. The wealth of knowledge passed on by Kholoud was above and beyond what I expected. I was never rushed, always given free time always asked if I wanted photos with anything. I felt completely looked after and comfortable. Please make sure you ask for Kholoud if booking this tour, she was the perfect guide.

I very much enjoyed the tour. My guide was Ahmed, who did a great job in explaining the significance of each of the historical sites we went to. The opportunity to get a feel for real life in Alexandria was excellent. The day was great, and I enjoyed Ahmed's company during it. Many thanks!

She was nice and patient but i had better tour guide who didn't spent their time talking to the driver but really talk about the city history. Also although you go to the Fort you only stay outside which I didn't care for.
