Port tours in Alexandria Egypt
 
I am planning a cruise on the Romantica which stops in Alexandria, Egypt. Does anyone know if there are tours to the pyramids from the ship.

Yes, we went there on the Romantica last year. There are 4 or5 tours to choose from. Because of the distance to the pyramids, they are all ful day tours with a long bus ride each way. But it is very much worth it. You can choose between very serious tours (pyramids + museums in Cairo) or more gentle ones (pyramids + boat cruise on Nile + shopping).

There are several tours to the pyramids (we'll be going on the Romantica 5/17/05). Here are a couple of links to posts at cruise critic. Let me know if you find any more info.

Also, the costa cruise line site has brief descriptions of tours that are available, but it is a terrible site and hard to navigate. Good Luck
