Egypt Holidays 9 nights, Cairo-Luxor-Aswan-Nile Cruise

CAIRO – 3 nights hotel accommodation, 3 breakfasts, transfer from the airport to the hotel on arrival and transfer from hotel to airport on departure. 

Tours to Giza;  go inside the Great Pyramid and step into the Kings Chamber; see the only solar boat on display in Egypt; take a camel ride from the Giza Panorama.  In the Antiquities Museum at Tahrir Sq. you will marvel at the quantity and quality of the collections, visit the Treasure Room of Tutankhamun and the Room of Mummies. 

Egypt is about more than pyramids and pharaohs.   With our knowledgeable and helpful guides you will have a magical time wandering around the totally unique  Gayer Anderson House.    When we take you to Medieval Cairo,  we don’t just walk you down the streets and then sit drinking coffee while you have what is hailed as “free time” on your own.  No, we take you inside those marvellous buildings and tell you their stories.  Included in all tours are transport, certified guide, entry tickets, travel permissions.

LUXOR – 2 nights at Mara House, 3 breakfasts, packed lunch for Abydos/Dendera, Tours to Karnak/Luxor/Abydos/Dendera Temples and the 5 main sites on West Bank, transfer from airport to Mara House on arrival and transfer to Cruise boat on departure day, transport, guide, entry tickets, travel permissions.  You will enjoy the famous SALAHADEEN FEAST at Mara House which we serve ONLY to our own in-house guests.

NILE CRUISE – 4 nights Full Board, tours to Edfu, Kom Ombo, Philae, more details

ABU SIMBEL is an optional extra which we will help organise but is not included in the price.

The itinerary is a busy, yet extremely comfortable itinerary, taking you through the highlights of Egypt in 10 days.  My reasoning for this is

  1. You may only come to Egypt once – there is a big world out there to see.
  2. You should see the best first
  3. Contrary to what a travel agent may say – the heat is not a big issue when your movements are properly planned and air-con is everywhere so you can do this itinerary any time of the year.
  4. Comfort is important – you are on holiday.
  5. Age and health status is not an issue – from baby to 70+ we are here to assist in every way.

The 9 night package is popular as it fits nicely into the amount of time many visitors are limited to.  However, there are several other monuments in Egypt we can take you to, if you have extra time and interest. 

Please contact Mara for the full information and remember to say in the email you are asking for the 9 night basic tour info please.  You would be surprised how many emails I get that just say “more info please”!

The following dates are bookable for the 9 night package.  I don’t offer private tours.  The number of guests on any tour is between 2 and 8.  Because there is no shopping on my tours you get maximum time possible at every site.  Our only constraint is the travelling time to and from the sites plus the closing times.

Update 27 October 2018if you are planning on taking our Egypt 9 night package in Dec/Jan,  you need to book asap but first you need to check available flights because already domestic flights for some dates/times are sold out and not showing up on the Egypt Air website.

    Five Star. Egypt it could be argued is patriarchal. Mara, in a magical way, is well networked and has earned respect. The people that were part of her team were professional, well educated, groomed, polite. The trip for me was surreal, in that the culture was foreign, the ancient architecture interesting. I had booked with Mara 6 months previous and did not know what to expect leaving details in her expertise, I finish with thoughts of satisfaction.

    Where to begin? Thank you so much for helping me realize a childhood dream. This trip was amazing from start to finish. Ahmed, Mohamed and Susie were great in Cairo. Amr and Mohamed in Luxor went above and beyond to make sure I was not only delighted with the tours but to make sure I did not miss out of Luxor experience.

    Mara House was clean and well looked after, perfect for relaxing after 43 degrees C days at the Temples and Tombs. Amr’s feast was phenomenal and service you will not find in many places.

    My favourite sites in Luxor -Tombs of Ramses III, IV and IX, Sety I and the Hypostyle Hall of Dendera. In Cairo, it was Saqqara and climbing inside the Great Pyramid.

    Thanks to Mara for excellent communication to make all this happen. Hope you are in Luxor next time I come so I can thank you in person.
