Itinerary (Full Description)

Welcome to the stunning city of Alexandria! Our air-conditioned bus will be ready and waiting for you as soon as your ship arrives to take you on a full day city tour. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our representative, who will escort you to the bus. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some welcome drinks as you start your tour of this fascinating ancient city.

When you first see the Bibliotheca Alexandrina from a distance, it appears like a sun disk with the Planetarium orbiting around it. As you get closer, you realize that this initial impression is accurate. The library's distinctive triangle shape is formed by the main building, Planetarium, and conference center, which was the result of a global competition involving 1400 researchers. Inside the main building, you can stand at the triangle of Callimachus and take in the view of the largest reading hall in the world. Walking through the passageways, you'll encounter impressive statues and paintings. The library offers free guided tours to educate visitors on its history, techniques, museums, exhibits, and major projects. Make sure to listen and take notes during the tour!

Travel along the coastline to the entrance of the eastern harbor of Alexandria. Keep an eye out for the peninsula that leads to the Qaitbay Citadel, a well-liked spot for both families and fishermen. The citadel, built on the same spot as the ancient Lighthouse of Alexandria, is constructed from the same stone. Allow our guide to lead you through the historic walls of the Mamluks structure. Peer out from the numerous small windows and capture the sights with your camera.

Feeling hungry during lunchtime? Why not go to a nearby restaurant known for their mouthwatering fish dishes from the Alexandrian Cuisine. Accompany your meal with rice and salads as side dishes and enjoy the soothing background music while you eat.

This time, we are not joking around. Our trip has come to an end and we are now heading to the port. Take a moment to gaze out of the bus window before you depart from the beautiful city. We hope to see you again. Safe travels.
