What You Can Expect

Private Alexandria Highlights Guided Day Tour

Witness Alexandria's Roman amphitheater

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

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!

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

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.
