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.
