Contemple la histórica Alejandría, la segunda ciudad más grande de Egipto en esta excursión de día completo desde El Cairo. Viaje a esta bella ciudad costera del Mediterráneo, fundada por Alejandro Magno en el 312 a. C, para aprender más sobre cómo actuó como capital de Egipto durante casi 1.000 años. Explore las fantasmagóricas catacumbas romanas de Kom ash-Shuqqafa; vea la fortaleza medieval de Qaitbey, donde una vez estuvo el legendario faro de Alejandría y asómbrese ante la nueva Biblioteca de Alejandría, una maravilla en forma de disco que rinde homenaje a la antigua biblioteca. Por último, visite el Museo Nacional, donde las exposiciones griegas, romanas y medievales muestran el tumultuoso pasado de la ciudad.
My tour guide Mohammed is a legend. He made my day! This tour is really great and I would highly recommend it. My favorite was the former light house, an incredible sight! The 2 hour ride was easy because we talked the whole way. Would book again with this company and this guide!
This tour was great! Our guide Ahmed was very informative from the minute he picked us up until he dropped us off. Well worth spendng the day. Only suggestion would be visiting the Library of Alexandria before the Alexandria National Museum, I feel like there is much more to see there than the Museum.
La calificación de 4 no es por el operador que ofrece el tour es en sí por Alejandría que nos quedo a deber un poco.
Hicimos otros recorridos en el Cairo y los lugares son maravillosos, la gente, la comida la verdad es que es un lugar que vale la pena conocer.
Este viaje en particular es largo y creo que hay otras mejores opciones para visitar.
de Alejandría la biblioteca es realmente espectacular !!
Be careful when you book this tour to know what it really is... a 3-hour drive to Alexandria, visiting a couple of sites, and a 3-hour drive back. The catacombs are very interesting to see the melding of Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures as each took over Egypt. Do don't go in the castle. The newly re-built library at Alexandria is interesting. Don't know if I'd waste an entire day of vacation on this tour.
The tour was as advertised but not quite what I was expecting. The catacombs were SO AMAZING. The museum was kind of boring and you couldn't take pictures. The library was impressive but again not what I was expecting - I thought there would be more information or artefacts from the original library. My guide was very accommodating and took us to see the citadel.
Had an amazing day in Alexandra, the guide was very well-informed and made sure I was comfortable with pace at which we were going, opting to spend more or less time as needed. Learned a lot about the city in-between sites we say, the education never stopped!
Thankfully, traffic from Cairo to Alexandria was light due to a holiday. The drive is quite doable for a day trip.
My guide, Hend, was extremely thoughtful, knowledgeable and accommodating.
Each of the tour stops especially the catacombs and library was worth it.
