Day 1 After getting picked up from your hotel in Cairo, travel in the comfort of a private air-conditioned vehicle towards Alexandria. At your first stop, admire the famous library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most impressive examples of ancient times. Next, visit the site of Pharos lighthouse of Alexandria, which was once an Ancient Wonder of the world, before breaking for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, visit the Montazah Palace Gardens, where you can marvel at the presidential palaces of Salamlek, Al-Haramlik, and their adjacent beaches. Later, stop for some photos at Alexandria’s most charming mosque and at the memorial statue of Alexander the Great. Next, pay a visit to the oldest church in Africa; the Church of St Mark. Finish your tour in Downtown Alexandria, passing through the old harbor along the way. At the end of the day, get dropped off at a 4* hotel where you will spend the night. Day 2 After breakfast, meet your tour guide and begin your journey towards the town of El-Alamein. First, head to the El Alamein War Museum to learn all about the tragic Western Desert campaigns.

This was a 2-day trip. Our guide and drivers are excellent. Un-fortunately the Garden Palace has been closed for years and we were not notified beforehand. We could only take pictures outside it. And due to it was the Egyptian Christmas on Jan 08, the Library was closed and again we could only take pics outside of it. We ended up finished early in the hotel around 2pm on the first day of our trip. We was then left in the hotel. However, the quality of the hotel is just so and so and there's nothing to do around the neighborhood (a quite dated anddirty area). However, the Citadel (castle) was good to visit and the experience on the 2nd day where we visited the War Museum in El Alamein was good. The 2 lunches incl. are of good quality. Overall, we did enjoy our trip.
