Overzicht

Ontdek de geneugten van de op één na grootste stad van Egypte tijdens deze privéuitstap naar Alexandrië vanuit Caïro. Reist u met een minibus met airconditioning en uw eigen Egyptoloog-gids, onthul de Grieks-Romeinse oorsprong van deze prachtige, relaxte mediterrane stad en bekijk de verbluffende hoogtepunten. Daal af in de griezelige Romeinse catacomben van Kom ash-Shuqqafa; zie het Romeinse amfitheater en de pilaar van Pompeius; en bezoek de ontzagwekkende hedendaagse bibliotheek: een spectaculair, schijfvormig gebouw dat zijn voorloper echoot, de eens zo grote oude bibliotheek van Alexandrië. Geniet van een flexibele, persoonlijke reisroute en een lunchpakket tijdens uw reis.
  • Privédagtrip naar Alexandrië vanuit Cairo
  • Kom ash-Shuqqafa Romeinse begraafplaats
  • Pompey's pijler en Romeins amfitheater
  • Alexandria Library, de thuisbasis van een exemplaar van elk boek dat in de wereld wordt uitgegeven
  • Geniet van bevoorrechte, persoonlijke aandacht van uw deskundige Egyptoloog-gids over deze speciale privétour
  • Ophalen en afzetten van hotels in centraal Cairo en Giza
Verlaat uw centrale hotel in Cairo of Giza met een minivan met airconditioning en reis noordwaarts naar de kustplaats Alexandrië. Onderweg, laat je Egyptoloog gids weten of je iets meer of minder van wilt zien: aangezien dit een privétour is, kan de reisroute op jouw maat worden afgestemd.

Als u op reis gaat, hoort u de geschiedenis van deze prachtige stad, de op een na grootste stad in Egypte. Ontdek, naast de ontspannen mediterrane sfeer en omgeving, hoe het beroemd is om zijn Grieks-Romeinse ruïnes, gesticht door Alexander de Grote in 312 voor Christus.

Bezoek bij aankomst de Romeinse begraafcatacombs van Kom ash-Shuqqafa. Daal af in de griezelige tunnels om hun houtsnijwerk en sculpturen te zien - allemaal met oude faraonische en Romeinse invloeden - en bezoek de hal van Caracalla, waar de botten van de afgeslachte christelijke soldaat werden gevonden.

Ontdek het daglicht om de pilaar van Pompeius te zien, een kolom van 25 meter lang gewijd aan keizer Diocletianus, die de belegerde stad bevrijdde en voedsel bracht aan de hongerende bewoners.

Blijf dan op het Romeinse thema met een bezoek aan het Romeinse amfitheater. Beschouwd als de best bewaarde Romeinse site in Egypte, omvatten de overblijfselen hier de verkreukte overblijfselen van Romeinse huizen en wegen.

Na een inbegrepen lunch, bezoek Alexandria's must-see moderne mijlpaal - de spectaculaire stadsbibliotheek. Gevormd als een gigantische, schuine schijf, werd dit ongelooflijke stuk architectuur voltooid in 2002, en herdenkt zijn voorganger, de legendarische bibliotheek van Alexandrië, ooit de grootste in de antieke wereld.

Kijk rond in het interieur met je gids en leer hoe het schapruimte heeft voor maar liefst acht miljoen boeken. Bekijk de tentoonstellingen over de geschiedenis van Egypte en bekijk de displays van zeldzame antieke boeken (als u dat wilt) (extra kosten).

Ontspan daarna op je rit terug naar Cairo, waar je reis eindigt bij het oorspronkelijke startpunt.

This was a fun trip. You are picked up from your hotel and begin your journey bright and early to Alexandria. Very professional and knowledgable of all the history in Alexandria. If I wanted to make a quick stop somewhere else on the way, there were no issues. Totally worth your time and you won't be disappointed.

Outstanding. Our guide picked us up as scheduled and drove to Alexandria. We saw many sights and the guide explained them in detail. We visited the Library at Alexandria. The building is as much a work of art as the collections. Very nice lunch overlooking the bay and then a pleasant drive back to our hotel in Cairo. My only regret was having to leave. Highly recommended.

Worth doing! Again Osama took us out to Alexandria. He was great, and kind and showed us the key spots. My only regret is to have spent more time here but we only signed up for the day. Great city.

Some people don't get a guide in Cairo. That's a mistake. If you have a private guide with you, like we did, your days (and I mean, every single day) will be just amazing. Firstly, our guide spoke great english. Secondly, he is a fun, approachable, professional and extremely knowledgeable guy!!! Our guide was very proud of their history so it was just very exciting to listen to everything he had to say. The guide was also very flexible!! We had a day trip to Alexandria that we decided not to do anymore, as we felt there was still quite a lot to learn and see in Cairo. So, our guide asked us what we wanted to see and we managed to change our plans and have a great day. He quickly realised we didn't want to, for instance, do the cruises and all the super touristic stuff so he took us to a restaurant he goes to very often and likes very much. We tried a very traditional meal called 'Kushari' and it's delicious, really worth trying! Anyway, definitely take a guide. It's worth the money, you feel safer, less 'uncomfortable with the guys staring at you etc. A guide is essential for you to have a great time and learn a lot!

A wonderful trip. I required a Chinese speaking guide trially, they did that! Surprised me! I have to say that it was perfect trip. Generally we visit four attractions and a restuarant in Alexandria. Not too many people there and the food was really good. An amazing city. Driver and guide are highly recommended. The guide name is Mahmoud Mohamed Fayed, If you are a Chinese visitor, he will be the right person for you.

It is a long drive to Alexandria... there are good things to see and our Egyptogist Tito was amazing. Unfortunately, the library was closed because of elections two days later... would have liked for the company to have checked this before.

This was a wonderful tour. Our planned departure was 7:00 AM. The night before I got a call from our tour guide asking if we would mind starting at 6:00 AM instead. He said we can beat a lot of the traffic coming back. And a lot of traffic there is in Cairo. We agreed and our tour guide and driver showed up promptly at 6:00 AM the next morning. We made the 3 hour journey from Cairo to Alexandria. Our guide spoke English well, he was very knowledgeable, and passionate about his work. He told us he was flexible and he would make any detours that we would like. And that's exactly what we did. After the burial site we asked to sit down for some shisha. They knew exactly where to go.We sat down for some coffee and shisha in a nice cafe. I asked how far our next stop was and he pointed across the street. He said Pompey's Pillar is just past these walls that we are seeing. It was so nice to just sit down and take in the whole thing and live like those in Alexandria. Anyways, we hit the pillar, and then headed over to the amphitheater before having lunch on the Mediterranean Sea. Our guide took us to a wonderful seafood restaurant. Food was included in the price, but drinks are not. No big deal, as drinks are not expensive anyways. After lunch we went to the library, but we were a little disappointed with this stop. Maybe we were just expecting an older library. Everything is brand new and modern. It's still a wonderful place, but the old library was destroyed. After the library we headed back to our hotel. We didn't get back until about 5:00 PM. Boy were we glad that we started early! We said goodnight until tomorrow morning to our tour guide and driver. It was so nice to have the same group for all of our tours. We tipped the tour guide 100 LE (Egyptian Pounds) and the driver 50 LE for each tour. All-in-all this tour was worth the money.

I wouldn´t recommend this tour, it isn´t worth the price! Our guide was terrible, we asked for a Spanish speaking guide, and he didn´t know anything about Alexandria, he didn´t even know who was the designer of the famous library. Very poor information, he even tried to impose his religion on us! The car was Ok with A/C in very good condition, but the driver as every driver in Egypt are very irresponsible, don´t follow the laws and driving signs. I had other tours on other days in our Nile River Cruise and were absolutely excellent. Me and my wife were very anxious for Alexandria for its rich history and when we were there we only wanted to go back to our hotel. The lunch was terrible, they took us to a very dirty restaurant. When we entered we told the guide we didn´t want to eat there since the tablecloth had stains all over it, and he told us that it wasn´t possible since he had ordered our meal already. We wouldn´t care not to eat and lose our lunch. Our experience in Alexandria was very bad!! I don´t recommend it!

This was terrific. Alexandria is an old, historic city from the Greek and Roman times in Egypt. The beaches have eroded but the new library is wonderful. I am sure there are still many antiquities still undiscovered since the historic sites are in the middle of areas of housing that have been there 100 years or so.
