What will we talk to you about?

We will tell you about people and places of historic and modern day interest.  Places, buildings and objects mean nothing to me without the stories behind their builders, owners or users.  We continually strive to research and incorporate more and more human stories about the people who lived in our historic places into our tours.

What will we NOT do?

Our tours are not “boot camps” where you are bored to death with dates and uninteresting historic facts for a couple hours and then spend the rest of the day in a factory shop.  We will NOT take you shopping during designated tour time.  But, don’t worry – you will have plenty time for shopping outside tour times if you want.

If Egypt is your dream trip or on your “bucket list” I advise early booking as the number of places on each trip is limited to 15.  Ask for full details

All the trips and packages I offer are based on my own personal experience – not because I believe I know what is best for everyone else, but because I do believe everyone deserves a quality and hassle free holiday.  So, while I don’t personally know you, I do presume you would like a trip where

  • you know the full cost of what you are buying
  • that has no hidden extras
  • gives you a real feel for the country and customs
  • helps you avoid the tourist traps.
  • is hassle free
  • eliminates the need for decision making on subjects you have little or no knowledge what your choices may entail.

Some groups are maximum 8 persons and some are maximum 15 persons

    Well what can I say. This trip for my wife and I has been awesome. The team at Mara House have also been awesome. From our initial first contact with Mara House throughout the trip and sadly it’s conclusion has been absolutely exceptional. Mara and her team have done everything in their absolute power to take any stress or hassle away from us so we can sit back and truly enjoy Egypt. Stunning place with its history and culture has certainly broadened both our horizons about the country and this wouldn’t have been possible for us without the Mara House team. If we do return to Egypt, Mara House will be the first phone call.

    The Trip of a Lifetime! My wife and I just returned from a wonderful 11-day trip to Egypt. What made this trip so amazing was Mara and her outstanding team (Ahmed, Mohammad & Mo!), who made Egypt, its fascinating history (from ancient to modern) and its wonderful & friendly people, come to life!

    All the arrangements were perfect; from Mara’s delightful, informative and stress-free itinerary, the 4-star accommodations, easy in-Country flights, our soothing 4 night Nile cruise, great food, great small-group fellowship (there were only 10 of us!), and of course Egypt’s HISTORY! And the whole time, everywhere we went, Ahmed and his team cared for us just like family.

    When we tell our friends where we went, and about everything we saw and did, and how reasonable the cost, they’re astounded! This has to be the BEST VALUE/MOST AFFORDABLE all-inclusive Egypt tour available from anyone!

    If you want to experience Egypt, we give our highest recommendation to Mara House! You won’t be sorry!

    Egypt/Luxor/Aswan trip Oct 3rd-Oct14th 2018

    We spent 11 days last month with Mara Tour and her excellent staff (Ahmed, Mohamad from Cairo and Mohamad from Luxor). Thanks for the team for all excellent information and keep us all safe all the time, especially Ahmed who was on call at all times.

    We learnt a lot about the ancient history of Egypt up all the way to Islamic, Christian era and modern times. We will definitely come back when they have more tombs/pyramid opens for tour! Great job guys!
