Your tour manager from Memphis Tours will pick you up from your hotel for Alexandria Day Tour. First visit Pompay's Pillar. It was constructed in honor of the Emperor Diocletian at the end of the 4th century. Originally from the temple of the Serapis, it was once a magnificent structure rivaling the Soma and the Caesarean. Then you drive to visit the Catacombs which are the largest Roman Cemetery consisting of three levels cut in the rock. Lunch at local restaurant in Alexandria, and then we proceed to see the Qaitbay Citadel which was built on the site of the ancient pharaohs ( Light House ) of Alexandria then to Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Finally you will drive back to your hotel in Alexandria.
The ship also stopped at Sharm El Sheik. As we were unsure before the cruise what we would do there, we left it too late to book with Memphis and instead booked a tour provided through the ship while on board. What a contrast. Compared to the Memphis tours, it was more expensive, less informative, far less enjoyable and we were herded like cattle onto big buses. That was an error, we should have booked with Memphis.
we look forward to the next tour!
