King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid was not meant to be visited:
Getting to it is challenging, and once you enter, it is very difficult to turn back. The stone passage is only wide enough for one person. You must be in good physical condition, able to climb several flights of stairs, bend double, crouch and duck-walk for short distances. The King's Chamber itself is the world's most claustrophobic place, with dim light and heavy, hot, oxygen-poor air. There is no ventilation. If you are at all sensitive to claustrophobia or confinement, or if you have any sort of respiratory condition, for your own safety and the safety of others, you must not enter the pyramid because it is impossible to remove a person or to bring aid to them quickly .

Conquerors, emperors, ancient travelers and traders have all approached Alexandria from the sea . . . and so will you! Only Travel in Style makes it possible to experience the very essence of this ancient city as it should be experienced, as it was known by pharaohs, queens, and invaders from Marc Antony to Napoleon.
We'll set sail into the great harbor, still the destination and port of call for ships from the far corners of the world. Landward, we'll espy the great and throbbing maritime metropolis of Egypt. Our course will take us directly above statues that lie on the seabed, and stone slabs of the Lighthouse-one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World-toppled in an ancient earthquake. We'll approach the great stone fortress of Qait Bey, reputedly constructed with some of those very stones.
Then we'll set a course along the coast to the East Harbor, dropping anchor above the Royal City that was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves in the fourth century A.D.
This underwater treasure house includes the palace of Cleopatra, the Timonium of Mark Antony, fallen columns and capitals, sphinxes, and statues and ceramics, much of it remarkably well preserved. Certified divers among our guests may book an optional excursion to explore this submarine Pompeii.
Along the way, we’ll view the spectacular Bibliotheca Alexandrina —the Library of Alexandria—as few are privileged to see it. Taking the stunning form of an inclined disk rising from the waters, it aptly captures the rebirth from the sea—in Pharaonic fashion—of the lost Alexandria Library of the ancient Greeks that held the works of the greatest scientists and philosophers of the ancient world. Like its namesake, the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina serves as a storehouse of knowledge and a beacon of culture and intellectual expression in this part of the world. Our maritime view is just a preview of our visit to the library itself.

we'll conclude an unforgettable voyage through history by setting
a course to Abu Qir, where the French fleet under Napoleon was
destroyed by Admiral Horatio Nelson.
Please note that this opportunity is limited to up to seven guests at a time. Two small cabins are available for changing and rest, as well as a bathroom, galley, dining salon, and sundeck. Our vessel is fully staffed by a crew of three, including captain. By prior arrangement, we can arrange for a sunset sailing, with cocktails and light music on your vessel's sound system, or a full day of sport fishing.
We can also make arrangements for you to meet and share dinner as guests of a local family.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to go beyond the limits of the casual visitor, to share your aspirations, outlook, customs, and experiences with people who have a lot more in common with you than you might ever expect. If you're interested, just let us know, and consider taking along something from your home town to leave with your hosts as a gesture of appreciation.
The recent discoveries join the New Library, opened just last year, among the top attractions in Alexandria. And the New Museum will shortly open in a historic palace that once housed the United States consulate.
Then it’s off for a walk to a market. Pretty soon, you’ll adjust your gait to your clothing, and shuffle rather than stride. You’ll pick up cues from those all around you. Leave the backpack at your hotel . we’ll hand you a straw basket or cloth bag in which to carry your purchases.
Will you be taken for a local, offered the prices that natives pay, be able to enter unobtrusively and unobserved? Well, let’s just say that you won’t stand out like a tourist in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt with red face and arms bared. You’ll go farther into the local ways than you would have otherwise. When you sit down for a cup of tea with a merchant, you’ll fell more genuinely part of the experience, and bargaining for the best price of a work of art, a rug or a homely teapot will come that much more easily. And just as you learn about different cultures through their food and language and manners, you’ll surprise yourself at how far you get and what you pick up by dressing up in the local manner.
And most of all, it’s fun! We’ll lend you everything you need for a half-day outing. Chances are, you’ll want to buy a robe yourself and set out again on your own. Please book at the time your reserve your tour with us.
