What you need to know about the excursion from the port of Alexandria

Alexandria Port Excursions, like any other port excursions, provide travelers with a unique opportunity to explore the local attractions and culture of Egypt.

Most cruise ships arrive at Alexandria port at 6 am and depart at 8 pm, leaving plenty of time for a day trip to Cairo to see the pyramids. Please note that time spent in port may be limited. Tour from port of Alexandria to Saqqara and Giza pyramids is planned so that you have enough time to return to the ship before departure, at least 2 hours in advance.

Our driver will meet you when leaving the port terminal after you have completed all the necessary border procedures. He will greet you with a sign "". The driver will take you to Cairo, where our English-speaking guide will be waiting for you.

What you will see on the tour from port of Alexandria to Saqqara and Giza Pyramids

Our excursion to the pyramids of Saqqara and Giza from the port of Alexandria in Egypt will begin with a visit to the Giza plateau. Here we will get acquainted with The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Sphinx. We'll take stunning photos from the panoramic platform and can try Camel riding at the pyramids (optional, paid separately).

After our sightseeing tour, we will have lunch at a local restaurant and head to Saqqara, where not only the Step pyramid of King Djoser awaits us, but also the amazing Saqqara tombs. We will visit several tombs (2-3 open to access). Let's take a look at the Pyramid of Teti and the Pyramid of Unas (separate ticket required after 12). Additionally, you can visit the mysterious Serapeum of Saqqara - underground catacombs in which sacred bulls, revered by the Egyptians as incarnations of the god Apis, were buried. The main architectural element of the Serapeum at Saqqara are the underground tombs, where bulls were buried in huge granite sarcophagi.

After the tour, transfer back to the port of Alexandria to your cruise ship. Return by 6 pm.
