9 nights starting with 3 nights in Cairo, 2 nights at Mara House Luxor, 4 nights Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan.  See the best of Egypt with great guides.  For an experience of Egypt to remember and treasure.  Bookable all year

EGYPT PACKAGE includes:

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, Antiquities Museum at Tahrir Sq, Gayer Anderson House and Medieval Cairo, transport, guide, entry tickets, travel permissions.

LUXOR – 2 nights at Mara House, 3 breakfasts, packed lunch for Abydos/Dendera, Tours to Karnak/Luxor/Abydos/Dendera Temple 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,  Salahadeen Feast.

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

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 following dates are bookable for the 9 night package.  While these are not group trips there are likely going to be other Mara House guests on some of your tours also.

    Grand Tour with 8-Year-old

    We’re just back from 9 full days in Egypt, totally planned by Mara of Luxor’s Mara House. Wonderful experience for both me (67) and my granddaughter. Mara’s guides were all excellent, knowledgeable and helpful. Other reviewers have praised Fatma and Mohamed in Cairo, as well as Mohammed in Luxor. I totally agree. I would also like to add freelance guide Hassan Mostafa, who accompanied us on our 3-day Nile cruise. Added to his skills as a guide was a playfulness and connection to kids that made it all more fun for my granddaughter. Hassan also showed us Karnak and Luxor Temples.

    I had been nervous about visiting Egypt, and especially taking a child into what might be a potentially dangerous country. Mara had been very reassuring, and I’m so glad that I listened to her. I always felt we were in good hands, and quite as safe as possible in today’s world.

    Our schedule was packed so little time to improvise. It would have been nice to have more time for shopping and just walking around. We were limited by having the parameters of Spring Break. We did squeeze a short visit to the beautiful Luxor Museum, which I highly recommend. Also, after our visit to the Valley of the Kings, I asked if we could see some local artisans at work. Mohammed took us to an alabaster workshop, which was quite interesting.

    Mara House itself is like a little museum, with high quality art works an integral part of its charm. Manager Ahmed was an impeccable host. A very comfortable place to stay. We loved our spacious suite.

    I don’t know if I’ll make it back to Egypt one day. I would like to. The people are open and friendly, and the magnificence of its attractions can’t be exaggerated.

    The crew at Mara House are some of the most hospitable people we have ever encountered travelling. We were made to feel very special and the service was exemplary. The tours are high quality and thoughtful, accommodation is high class and the food is top restaurant quality and authentic.

    Whilst other supposedly cheaper tours take you to shops where they get kickbacks and refrain from telling you admissions are extra, Mara House includes everything and only has in mind providing the best service and best time spent for the whole trip. We packed an enormous amount into 10 days but never felt rushed or uneasy. The guides, drivers and all the staff were so friendly and immensely competent making us feel always at ease and intrigued but the beauty of this uniquely interesting country.

    We felt completely safe too the whole trip, I only wish we could have stayed longer so we will be back and will be coming to Mara House again.

    We saw and did everything that we wanted to see and do in Egypt with Mara and her wonderful team of guides, house hosts and drivers. We felt safe, comfortable, well cared for and well-informed the whole trip. Mara House in Luxor is fun, interesting, elegant and comfortable. The food and service is excellent. Mara was v. helpful in arranging an extra day for us to go to go to Abu Simbal on top of the 9 day itinerary which was excellent. Everyone went over and above to treat us well – it was great that you all round. They are a lovely team providing excellent customer service. The Egyptians are fantastic people, full of life and wonder. What a country! We had a ripper beaudie time from beginning to end and we thank you all very much.
