If you have the luxury of being able to spend a minimum of 9 nights in Egypt, this is the perfect itinerary. You will visit all the important, “must see” and most interesting monuments in Egypt.
The thing that drains the energy out of me when visiting a new place, especially if I don’t speak the language, is searching the net for info and THEN, trying to decide what is the easiest and fastest way to get from one place to another cheaply – oh, and in comfort would be nice! I have been to New York about 10 times now and every time I found myself thinking “I wish there was a Mara here!”
Trust Mara to Give you the Best Holiday in Egypt
I’m Mara and this is the itinerary I would give to my best friends and family. But the itinerary is only half the job done when trying to have the best Egyptian Holiday . So, how can I help you experience the hidden wonder that I find here?
Well, half of it is up to you. My 50% involves providing you with the space and time to visit the ancient, sacred places in peace. It involves organising the transport, the ticket buying and the great guides. It involves keeping you away from as much of the normal hassle tourists experience here as I can. It involves providing you with nice places to stay, comfortable transport, good food and a relaxed atmosphere. We will meet you at the airport when you arrive and see you back there safely at the end of your trip. You want to know if I deliver on my 50%? Take the time to read the reviews of our guests at the end of the page.
Egypt Holidays 9 nights
CAIRO – Transfer from the airport on arrival, 2 nights hotel accommodation, 2 breakfasts, 2 full days tours in Cairo and transfer from hotel to airport on departure. You will experience Pharaonic, Medieval and 19th century Egypt.
You will visit the Giza Plateau; go inside the Great Pyramid and step into the Kings Chamber; see the only solar boat on display in Egypt; take a camel ride at the Pyramids. 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. You will visit the Gayer Anderson House and do a walking tour of Medieval Cairo, two places where you will find few tourists.
Your days will be full and interesting – I promise my guides will NOT be taking you to spend half days in perfume “palaces” and papyrus “museums” – they are simply shops. You will get time to explore the biggest market in the world, which is Khan El Khalili, if you want as Medieval Cairo is in the same area. Your guides will show you where to find anything you want but we don’t partake in the commission system. My prices are up front and I don’t make money out of you with hidden extras etc
NILE CRUISE – 4 nights Full Board, incl tours to the famous temples on the Nile.
ABU SIMBEL – is an optional extra overland trip we can do with you.
The itinerary is a busy, yet extremely comfortable itinerary, taking you through the highlights of Egypt in 10 days. My reasoning for this is
- You may only come to Egypt once – there is a big world out there to see.
- You should see the best first
- Contrary to what you might think – the heat is not a big issue when your movements are properly planned and air-con is everywhere. You can do this itinerary any time of the year. Comfort is important and you are on holiday.
- 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.
