Overview

I will meet you at 7 am at your accommodation in downtown Cairo or pyramids area, then we will start our tour.

Explore the rich history of Alexandria; tracing time from its ancient Egyptian roots, through the Classical period, to Roman times and beyond on an informative full-day tour from Cairo. Enjoy meet-and-greet service pick-up, and drop off from your Cairo hotel, and the comfort of an air-conditioned bus.

Begin the journey with a visit to the Roman theater in Kom El-Deka; a marble theater that once seated 800 spectators with galleries.

Continuing, explore the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa; the necropolis of 3 sub-levels dating from the 2nd century AD merges aspects of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman culture in its features.

Concluding the tour, walk the ramparts of the 15th century Qaitbay Citadel, built upon the ruins of the ancient Alexandria Lighthouse. End this day of discovery with a relaxed evening drive back to Cairo, and your hotel.

My day in Alexandria through Amon Ra tours was great! Wonderful security, great tour guide who is a pro at what he does. He is very time efficient and has a great agenda set up. Does a wonderful job in ensuring the group is together and is moving according to schedule. Would highly recommend

Worth It

My expérience was super amazing and out of this world. My guide Eslam is very knowledgeable and a great story teller who has a passion for his work. The service given was above what was requested as I had the privilege of being taking to shops that only an experienced local would know. In addition Eslam was open and it felt like a personally curated experience Thank you soo Much Mido and Eslam
Good for Solo Travelers

I highly recommend the day trip to Alexandria. Quite a seemless trip. It's a great option for a solo traveler.
