Alexandria City Tour Excursion Reviews

Alexandria City Tour cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Take a guided tour through the ancient metropolis of Alexandria (also known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean). The second largest city in Egypt will have you in awe as you journey through the lively boulevards, and absorb a rich heritage, all while being immersed in stunning colonial architecture.

Dirty decaying and gridlock.

Library is modern -- the ancient wonder is sunken under the bay. Neat, but not fascinating. The catacombs were kind of neat, but again, not fascinating. Alexandria is a filthy town -- all of Egypt needs to work on their sanitation. It would be neat to dive on the undersea ruins of Alexandria, but I'm afraid the bay water is polluted just looking at the city itself.

Alexandria was the dirtiest city I have ever visited. There did not seem to be a sense of pride that one might find say in India. Could not wait to get out of Alexandria.

More of a drive past at most places. Drivers a bit rude. Vehicles from the dark ages. Even the cruise tour did the same sights/buildings as we did at a higher cost plus the cruise tour went to a jewellers shop. Why I don't know it didn't mention that on the itinerary our family had been given.
