You will see the Greco-Roman sites and the Catacombs of Kom El Shouqafa, lie in the district of Karmouz to the east of Alexandria and there was a great mixture of different cultures, the great Egyptian kingdoms, the culture of the Greek rulers and finally, the Romans took control of the city and added their traditions, Pompey's pillar and the Citadel of Qaitbay, which is considered one of the most important defensive fortifications, not only in Egypt but also along the Mediterranean Sea coast, visit the modern Bibliotheca of Alexandria and finish your Alexandria Tour from Cairo with a delicious fresh seafood,

Our trip to Alexandria from Cairo was packed with things to see all day. Our tour guide, Ahmed, was VERY knowledgable about Egypt’s history and timeline. My favorite part of the trip was lunch at The Fish Market. The restaurant sits on the Mediterranean with beautiful views! Fresh hot Egyptian bread comes out of a brick oven and delivered to your table hot with a plethora of dipping sauces. Our sea bass was fluffy and lightly tempura fried. Delish! Ahmed called in our order ahead of time, so we had all of our food within 5-7 mins of arriving. Very efficient!

Only critique is that this trip spends a lot of time in the car between the three hours to Alexandria and three hours back in addition to sitting in chaotic traffic trying to maneuver from site to site. Just be prepared! And bring snacks.

We are 6 in a group and we are so so happy to have booked our Alexandria day tour with Cairo Top Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves having such a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. Everything started smooth and went extremely well. We are all very well looked after and had such memorable trip which we will all treasure and definitely come back to Cairo Top Tours for more excellent tours. We look forward to travel again soon in Egypt and let Cairo Top Tours handle our trips because they are truly professional and we'll organized.

We took a private tour from Cairo to Catacombs, Pompei’s pillar, the new Library of Alexandria and the citadel of Qaitbay. After that, we had lunch in a wonderful restaurant in front of the seaside. The trip was awesome and i recomend you too. Mohammed is a very nice guy! Thank you Mohammed!
