Egypt Shore Excursions
/ Silver Spirit at Alexandria 08 April 2023 – Cairo Day Trip From Alexandria Port
A perfect quick-paced Cairo Highlights Tour for the guest wanting to see as much of Cairo as possible in one day. This private tour will help you avoid congestion, see more, and wait for less than the extensive group tours.
Your private guide and driver will be at the exit door of Alexandria port and will take you to the city of Cairo, approximately a 3 hours drive from the port. Upon arrival, your English-speaking professional guide w will lead you on a quick-paced exploration of the city's famous sites. The day tour will start with the climax of the excitement, the Great pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx.
You will visit the symbol of Eternity and the only wonder that still survives among the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid of Cheops. It is undoubtedly one of the most recognized and one of the most important monuments of ancient Egypt. A masterpiece of fabricated structure and architecture, you will be overwhelmed by the massive size of its blocks, the height, and the age that exceeded 4600 years.
While you stare at this incredible monument, your guide will thoroughly explain the history of the area, including the other pyramids of Chephren and Mycerinus, answer all your questions, and give you free time for photography. You will have the chance to take pictures of the area, including all the pyramids from the panorama area.).
You will spend more than two hours in the area so that you can have enough time to do some extras like entering one of the pyramids or having a camel ride (upon your request for an extra cost)
Moving to the Sphinx area, where you will spend some time exploring this monolith statue, which symbolizes the power and wisdom of the pharaoh as the statue, was carved as a lion's body and the head of the pharaoh. Next to the Sphinx area, you will visit the valley temple to learn about mummification in ancient Egypt.
On the way to your next stop, lunch will be served in a local Egyptian restaurant.
After tasting some delicious Egyptian food, another heavy meal is waiting for you to swallow.
You will visit one of the most prominent museums globally, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, which houses the most significant collections of Egypt monuments. Allow at least two hours for the Museum tour, but don't expect to see everything in one visit—it would take days to explore the entire museum, and it's easy to get lost. With so much to see, visiting with a tour guide is a convenient choice, and our private guided tour will ensure you maximize your time and see the highlights.
At the end of this fantastic tour, which includes the two major attractions in Cairo, your guide and driver will accompany you back to the port of Alexandria.

Cruisers, the Best Way to Go With Your Egypt Tours.
It had been my lifelong dream to go see the Pyramids.
We had tried to go a few times but due the previous drama in Egypt, we never got there.
We were going on the Sun Princess Sydney to Dover 53 nights cruise.
I have never organized a tour for people I had never meet, and did not know at this stage for how many people.
As always, I researched TripAdvisor my bible when traveling and found Your Egypt Tours.
I emailed Ana Abu to see what they could do as our ship arrived in Alexandria.
Beside the Pyramids, I wanted to see Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Khan Al-Khalili Bazaar.Lunch was included.
Ana was great and advised they would be there to pick us at 6am from the port of Alexandria .He also said I could email him with final number for our tour a week before we arrive in Egypt. Every time I asked Ana any questions, he would reply promptly.
Well we had a group of twenty people, two days from arriving in Alexandria I went down with the Novo virus and was quarantined for 50 hours so would not be able to take the tour. My husband did not get the virus; our party went from 20 to 16 due to the Novo virus. I emailed Ana and advised him what had happened. Again, everything would be ok.
My husband and the rest of our group had a fantastic day. There were three people on the bus from Your Egypt Tours. The coach driver, the guide and Mamdouh the Egyptologist.
I had every one on the tour come and thank me as they had had such a great time. They said that Mamdouh was great, so enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The guide and Mamdouh help keep the group together. During the tour, my husband received a call from Ana to see if everything was ok. What a service.
I was very upset I was not able to go on this tour, but we will do Egypt at another date and for longer than a day. We will be booking our tour through Your Egypt Tour because of their great service.
Thank you Ana for your lovely present of a Papyrus Egyptian Calendar.

The best way to see the Pyramids and Cairo from the Cruise Ship
This is simply the best way to experience Cairo and the Pyramids from a cruise ship. You have your own driver and also a guide who is able to take you everywhere and as a small group (with us it was 2 adults and 2 kids) you get in and through things so much quicker than a bus tour and therefore you get to see so much more. No waiting around for everyone to get on the bus etc. Shaimaa was our guide and she was simply wonderful, giving us some real personal guidance on things we wanted to find out . Having our own car and driver was fantastic such as when we would walk around one lot of pyramids and then the car would pick us up on the other side. As we were always walking around with our guide, Shaimaa would also keep all the hassles clear from us such as with the local peddlers etc. When we got back to the ship, I would have to say that of everyone we spoke to about Egypt, our experience was simply so much better and thanks can only go to Your Egypt Tours and Shaimaa. Have already recommended them to many friends and would go back and use them again. I just simply say enough good things about them.
