A good alternative to taking a taxi used to be getting from Borg El Arab Airport to Alexandria, and then hopping on the train to Cairo; the fare used to be cheaper than taking a taxi and it offered some great views along the way. However, tourists are now expected to pay much higher fares than the locals and even a single train ticket can end up costing twice as much as taking a taxi; it’s simply not worth it considering the travel time and the additional transportation needed to get to the Alexandria train station.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Alexandria at the same price as a regular taxi.
