Highlights
A private day trip to Alexandria from Cairo or Giza
A firsthand peek at the legendary, but under-the-radar, seaside city
See the main sights in a single visit and walk along the Mediterranean 
Enjoy local lunch and hotel transfers (included)
What to expect
Few tourists in Egypt venture to Alexandria, a legendary port city on the Mediterranean coast founded by Alexander the Great. During this private day tour with hotel transfers from Cairo or Giza, discover under-the-radar attractions of one of antiquity’s most prosperous cities, once known for its massive library, which held 500,000 books, and the Pharos of Alexandria, the most famous lighthouse of the ancient world. Those sights now only exist in legend, but you get a chance to explore other ancient ruins that have remained standing, such as the Roman Theater, and medieval marvels, including the Catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa. After a tasty lunch in a local restaurant, see the modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina, a library built to commemorate Alexandria’s ancient center of knowledge. Take a stroll along the Corniche, a historic waterfront promenade, before private transfer back to your hotel.

Private Tour Day Trip to Alexandria from Cairo
Feb 2020
We had a very interesting day touring Alexandria. Our guide, Abdul and driver, Ehab were great. They arrived at our hotel earlier than our stated departure time to pick us up.They definitely knew where they were going and told us interesting facts and details about the sites, as well as the current state of affairs in Egypt.They even agreed to take our luggage in the morning to the next hotel does the road, where we would join our larger tour group later in the evening. The tour was from 7 am to about 8 pm. We saw Roman Catacombs, Pompey’s Pillar, a Roman Amphitheatre, lunch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the Citadel, and the Papyrus Institute in Giza, before being dropped off at our hotel in the evening. The car was clean and rest stops were made along the way. Bottled water was supplied and lunch was included. Be prepared for crazy driving and traffic. We were surprised that Alexandria was worn-looking and dirtier than what we had expected of a historic city by the sea.

I was on my own and wanted to see Alexandria from Cairo in one day. The guide was great. On time, perfect English and very informed. We had a driver who was cautious and car very clean. This tour exceeded my expectations. They had me back in perfect time to join the tour I had booked in evening. Very pleased. I felt extremely safe on my own. I highly recommend this service. Enjoy!

Alexandria
I went on the Alexandria tour from Cairo today with Ali; an Exceptional guide, and Abraham; the "Best driver in Egypt". I thoroughly enjoyed Alexandria, the catacombs and the Citadel. Lunch was also superb.
Egypt is wonderful country with a vast history and a welcoming population.
I highly recommend EMO tours for your vacation needs in Egypt. EMO tours has treated me like family over the last two weeks and I thank them for the excellent guides and service they have provided. The memories will be forever.
Best wishes.

Great day trip
Dec 2019 • Family
We got picked up from Hotel in a nice car by tour guide Maged from hotel lobby.Maged was very knowledgeable plus passionate about his work and he gave us an interesting overview of each attraction that he was going to take us to while driving to Alexandria.We visited The Cata comp, pombay spiller, citadel and the library.

Very interesting and diverse sites and different from what you see in rest of Egypt.

Maxed took time to explain the details at each site and answer all the questions which made the trip very interesting.

Lunch at chicken tikka was very good.

Overall a very enjoyable day trip .

Thank you Maged for a great job.

Incredible seaside views
Dec 2019 • Business
Can’t say enough great things about this experience. I had Ayman Gabry for my tours to Giza, Memphis, Saqqara and Dashur, plus Day Trip to Alexandria. All of the things you look for in a tour were perfect - on time, felt safe, got to see all the promised elements of the tour, didn’t feel rushed, but Ayman went above and beyond. He stopped for coffee for me several times, always offered to grab water or stop at rest rooms as we had some long drives, was talkative about the different areas we were driving through, sharing cultural information but also his personal story, which was cool, and best of all, he was totally OK with me falling asleep in the car every time. Had some fantastic conversation with him about Egypt, politics, history and more. The driver even played some pretty great music - cheers to him as well! When I travel, I try to see as much as possible in some pretty tight timelines, and Ayman made all that happen plus some. Thanks to him and Emo Tours. You won’t be disappointed.

Side note about Emo Tours: I booked 6 tours over 5 days with them, and they were incredible to work with. Prompt responses to emails, helpful with all questions, organized, always sent reminders and made sure I knew where I had to be. Great company. Again, you can’t go wrong with this group and their guides, like Ayman.

Worth the drive
Dec 2019
Went on the day trip to Alexandria and loved seeing the famous sites. Be prepared for a three hour drive from Cairo, because there is always traffic!! The sites were incredible and our guide, Ahmed was very knowledgable. A seafood lunch was provided at a lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Our driver, Waleed arrived on time, was professional, calm and managed the roads perfectly. Thank you Emo Tours.
