Land of Cleopatra


2 days relaxing in Alexandria. We will visit land of Alexander the Great and the original site of Ancient light house, one of the oldest 7 wonders of the world.

First day in morning pick you up from Cairo for starting our tour in Alexandria:

Alexandria was Greek Roman capital so we can see Greek Roman monuments, but Alexandria has varied history in its visiting so we can see a lot of things in Alexandria dating back to different times. Alexandria's history mainly starts with Alexander the great, then Greek Roman time, then Christian time (Alexandria has the oldest church in Africa) then Muslim time, and finally Kingdom time (Alexandria was a great destination for the king so he has 3 palaces in Alexandria).

10% of Alexandrian people are Greeks so we will walk in the city for enjoying with Italian and Egyptian architecture.
We will go to old market for staying in local cafe and walking in old markets to see how is the daily life in Alexandria

In the end we will transfer you Again to Cairo by new car.

A Recent Review of this tour

Enjoyed our tour, Youssef was very informative,knowledgable & his English was excellent. Everything went to plan - on both days the car was waiting at the scheduled time. We especially liked the opportunity to see the local life & to eat at places that we would not have otherwise been able to go to - with the knowledge that the food was fresh & safe. The flexibility of time & place made the tour superior to those offered by larger more impersonal operators.
