Amro is a guide of high quality and flawless culture. We discovered egypt thanks to a tailor-made 15-day course that Amro in particular has been able to make as pleasant as possible.

He accompanied us throughout the trip from North to South, knowing how to meet our expectations at all times. Congratulations again to this wonderful guide.

Cairo and Alexandria and Nile Cruise

Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC. J.-C. Second city of Egypt, less touristic. It is above all a Mediterranean city which draws its roots and its true richness from a mosaic of cultures. Renowned for its Greco-Roman monuments, such as the amphitheater of Kom el Dikka, citadel of Qaitbay, as well as the ancient city and the Library of Alexandria.

Having been the capital of the country, it was, for about 6 centuries, a great center of commerce (port of Egypt), and one of the greatest Hellenistic cultural centers of the Mediterranean Sea centered on the famous library. The city during the Hellenistic period presented the largest city in the Greek world.
Nicknamed ''the trading post of the world'', Alexandria was a major trading hub. However, it resulted in the formation of a cosmopolitan population of the order of half a million inhabitants... unequaled during Antiquity. In addition, the city was the capital of lagid power.

This ancient city has suffered various earthquakes. And due to these devastating events, its famous Lighthouse and the old great library have unfortunately disappeared since. This library was the largest in the ancient world, and it was therefore the place where the great philosophers and scientists of that time came to seek knowledge. It was founded in 288 BC. J.-C. and was definitively destroyed around the year 48 before our era; it was the most famous library of antiquity, bringing together the most important works of the time. The library was part of a larger set called the Mouseion dedicated to the Muses, being in fact the nine goddesses of the arts. The library quickly acquired many rolls of papyrus thanks to the voluntarist policy of the Ptolemaic kings. The number of these papyrus rolls is estimated to be between 40,000 and 400,000 at its peak.
