The journey takes about 3 hours each way.

    In Alexandria you will visit the catacombs of Kom el-Shoqafa (one of the seven wonders of the Middle Ages), Pompey's pillar and the Serapium (the temple of god Serapis), the Fort of Qaitbay (the site of the ancient lighthouse, Pharos), the Roman amphitheater and the New Library of Alexandria.Lunch in a seafood restaurant is included. At the end of the tour you will be transferred back to your hotel.

    This activity was an utter disappointment and made for our worst day in Egypt. Our tour guide was not fluent in English, only explained a few things about each site we visited and spent most of his time on his cell phone. The tour's description included WiFi, water, soft drink
