Alexandria Day Trip From Cairo

This product is unavailable to book via TripAdvisor. Contact the supplier for availability.
Alexandria is at least a 5-hour round trip from Cairo so it pays to use your time effectively. Make the absolute most of those precious few hours on this door-to-door tour that covers the library, the Roman Amphitheater, the corniche and harbor, the site of the lighthouse, the Citadel of Qaitbay, the Montazah Palace Gardens, Stanley Bridge, the Mosque of Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi, and El Nabi Daniel Mosque.
    What to Expect
    Our tour guide will be waiting you at the lobby of your hotel at 7:00am.

    Travel to Alexandria. Start the tour with the library of Alexandria; the biggest library in the world.

    Visit the Roman Amphitheater of Alexandria with the display of the sunken monuments of Alexandria which were discovered under the East harbor of Alexandria.

    The car will then take you to visit the church of St. Mark – the oldest church in Africa, after which you will visit the old downtown of Alexandria where you can walk through the old city-center of Alexandria. Look at the traditional markets; where everything and anything is sold including traditional Egyptian sweets and treats. The architecture locally has baroque style designs and Italian and French style properties.

    Visit El Nabi Daniel Mosque which is believed by many people to be related to Alexander the great tomb,  It is said to contain the remains of the scholar and venerated teacher Prophet Daniel and his companion Sidi Lokman el Hakim, a religious story-teller.

    Continue your tour by passing through the oldest market area in Mansheya and see the traditional womens’ markets (zan’et etsetat) with very thin and narrow streets,  gold market also exists here where everyone buys their wedding and engagement jewellery.

    The car will then take you to visit the prettiest and biggest mosque in the city: the Abbo Elabbas Mosque, and the strangest sight outside it: an old funfair where children play on very antique funfair rides and eat candy floss.

    Opposite is the corniche and the old harbour where you can see the old fishing boats, men fishing and traditional fishermen making nets. The photos taken here are amazing. Continue  to see the outside of Quaitbay castle which was built on the same site as the ancient Lighthouse of Alexandria one of the seven wonders of ancient world . A most spectacular castle which is a great photo stop.

    The car will then take you to the gardens of Montaza. On the way you can quickly have a optional 2 minute stop by the King of Mango and drink at Alexandrian’s drive thru freshly squeezed juices plus have a photo stop at the memorial of the Unknown Soldier of Alexandria.

    The beautiful coastline and all the views of the city are en route to Montaza Palace and gardens which is approx 25 km away, including the old harbor of Alexandria where we found 7000 monuments underwater.

    Once in Montaza Gardens, commonly known as the Love Garden  (all romantic couples and families go there) you will visit the royal gardens of King Farouk (the last king in the history of Egypt) and see the royal palaces of Haramlek and Salamlek as well as walk along the famous Montaza bridge and reach the Tea Palace island and see the royal beaches of the queens.

    On your way back you will stop over the famous bridge of Stanley – the modern landmark of modern Alexandria,  then travel in comfort back to your hotel in Cairo.

    The beginning of the day was quite rushed and felt more like a picture tour than a history tour, but the end of the day went much better. It did feel like we were trying to do too much in one day. I would suggest staying a night or two in Alexandria The driver was great, but

    We took this tour the end of May and although it was very hot our guide in Alexandria, Eriny, and our driver, Farouk, made sure we saw everything we were supposed to see. Both of them are excellent. I highly recommend this tour, very professional tour company.
