Cairo is the most amazing city in the world.  If you stay for a month you still will not see or experience it in full – not even close!  We offer a 3 night package incl 3 nights in Steigenberger El Tahrir and 2 days touring.  No problem if you have more than 3 days to spend in Cairo and would like us to extend your tour.

Most people coming to Cairo just want to see the highlights in a short time.  The average stay is 3 days and this is why I have a basic 3 night incl 2 days touring package. 

Basic 3 night Cairo Package

  • Accommodation 3 nights in 5 star hotel
  • Two full days tours which include the guide, transport and entry tickets
  • Entry tickets to the Giza Plateau, Great Pyramid, Solar Boat and the Sphinx
  • Entry tickets to the  Gayer Anderson House and all the houses/monuments on the Medieval Tour
  • Free time in Khan El Khalili – the biggest bazzar in the world which is in the medieval Cairo area.
  • 2 airport transfers
  • Meet and greet at the airport by my Tour Manager.
  • Egyptologist Guide on all tours.

    My wife and I had booked a cruise from Singapore to the Middle East and when we realised that Cairo is only 3 hours flying time from our last cruise port we thought why not visit. Well I am glad we did because our visit to Egypt was the unexpected highlight of our trip! Mara’s pre-trip information was excellent and her team in Cairo were the best. Fatma met us at the airport on arrival and her driver transported us to the comfortable Steigenberger Hotel in the heart of the city. Fatma had already visited the hotel and negotiated a great room on our behalf. Fatma stayed with us through the check in procedure to make sure the process was smoothly handled and this set the tone for the rest of our visit to Cairo. Fatma is a very knowledgable guide as well as a very nice person. Nothing was too much trouble as she expertly guided us through the unbelievable history of Cairo. Together with the assistance of Reham, an expert Egyptologist we were provided with fascinating insights to the pyramids and later at the Egyptian museum. This was a very memorable trip for us and we can unreservedly recommend Mara and her team (particularly Fatma) for a private tour of Cairo.

    I had a little extra time after a work trip and did the Cairo Package, which was great. There’s no way you can see everything in three days, but doing so is better than not ever making the trip at all. And of course, you can do the Pyramids in a day, and honestly, there’s a reason doing so is on everyone’s bucket list.

    What I really appreciated was how the guides provided direction and insight, but also pulled back to allow visitors to have their own experiences. After the tours were over, they were there to offer info about restaurants and activity hubs if you wanted it, but that was up to you. And as great as it is to have a guided tour of the Cairo Museum, taking some time to explore it yourself can be even more enlightening.

    And if you’re like me and thinking about doing a trip on your own…just don’t. Mara lays out all the insight you need about why it’s best to have a guide (, and after being there, I couldn’t agree more with all of it. It’s a question of whether you want to spend the trip seeing the sights or trying to figure out the best way to get to and see the sights. The latter is definitely the way to go, for more than the seven reasons she lays out.
