A 1900 years old Roman subterranean tomb where cremated and mummified bodies were preserved. Enjoy the best view over the city and the sea from the Fort of Qaitbay, a 15th fort built on top of the original location of the Lighthouse that was gone. The fort was meant to protect the Eastern harbor of the city.

My guide Khaled Mamdoh was professional, knowledgeable, with a caring personality. Teamed with an excellent driver made this day trip memorable. Mr. Mamdoh knew many short cuts around Alexandria so we could spend my time at the sights instead of traffic. I highly recommend this tour.

We were met by a great guide and driver in Alexandria and took an all day tour of the pyramids at Giza and Sakara. The guide "Mina" was informative and took us to a great lunch. We were so happy we used them again the next day for a tour of Alexandria. I would definitely use this company again and recommend them to anyone.
