Egypt Alexandria Tour

Come with us to explore Egypt where Pharaoh Akhenaton and Queen Nefertiti worshiped the Sun. They built great temples and pyramids along the Nile banks and cruised its placid waters in graceful gilded boats. To European explorers the Nile was the river-road to adventure. They sailed from Alexandria and Cairo on swift white-sailed feluccas, penetrating deep into the heart of Africa.

Continue exploring the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa; the necropolis of 3 sub-levels dating from the 2nd century AD. It merges aspects of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman culture in its features. See the Roman triclinium – a banquet hall to honor the dead. As well as statues, reliefs, and a pillared lobby featuring depictions of Egyptian gods in Roman armor.

Next wander through the lush Montaza Gardens, and see the site of the Alexandria Library. Concluding the tour, walk the ramparts of the 15th century Qaitbay Citadel. Built upon the ruins of the ancient Alexandria Lighthouse.

With the Alexandria Tour, you will visit, amongst others, the ancient Pyramids and Sphinx, Memphis and Sakkara. You will experience Alexandria – the Pearl of the Mediterranean.
