Rail Tours in Egypt

Egypt by Train – The Land of the Gods

From the Great Pyramids at Giza to the Roman Amphitheatre and Library at Alexandria - tours of Egypt by train are a glimpse into the country's storied past. The city of Alexandria is a highlight on any tour of Egypt by train. Home to the remains of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the original Seven Wonders of the World, Alexandria is a thriving Mediterranean port on the Nile Delta. It is impossible to ignore the presence of the Nile when travelling through Egypt by train. The great river is the source of the only greenery in hundreds of miles of desert.
