Contemple a histórica Alexandria, a segunda maior cidade do Egito, nesta excursão de um dia inteiro saindo de Cairo. Viaje para esta linda cidade costeira do Mediterrâneo, fundada por Alexandre o Grande em 312 a.C., e aprenda mais sobre como ela serviu de capital do Egito por quase 1.000 anos. Explore as assustadoras catacumbas de Kom ash-Shuqqafa; conheça o medieval Forte Qaitbey onde ficava o lendário Farol de Alexandria; e maravilhe-se com a nova Biblioteca de Alexandria, uma maravilha arquitetônica em forma de disco que homenageia a antiga biblioteca. Por fim, visite o Museu Nacional, onde exibições de relíquias gregas, romanas e medievais ajudam a contar a história do tumultuado passado da cidade.
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.
