Come and explore Egypt with me.  Let me tell you about the Egypt that has an un-explainable hold on me.  We cover Pharaonic, Medieval and Islamic Cairo,  the pharaonic sites in Luxor such as Valley of Kings etc,  and the pharaonic sites between Luxor and Aswan.  Our tour incorporates a Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan as well as a stay in Luxor.

Places, buildings and objects mean nothing to me without the stories behind their builders, owners or users.  Finding the human stories behind the monuments has always driven me and, apart from explaining the Egyptology of the sites, these are the stories we will be sharing with you.  I would like to give you the stories of the monuments and a feel for the people who lived in and used them.  Then, hopefully, when you walk in these places you will have a better feel for them.  Hopefully also my personal tour will give you a timeline of stories about people and places that make sense.  If I succeed you will be forever hooked on Egypt – as I am.

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 – 16.  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.

    Great value for Egypt

    We did our tour with this company. We were met at the airport at 4.30am by the smiling caring tour manager despite the fact that he’d been transferring people since midnight.

    Our hotel was amazing and Ahmed, our tour manager, arranged for us to get into our room by 7am! Not many places will do that for you. Mara, the owner of the tour company, met us all before the tour started to explain how things would be.

    We spent 4 days in Cairo and then a relaxing cruise on the Nile from Luxor to Aswen. Here we got to have dinner at Mara House which was amazing! The Egypologists, Mohammed and Mohammed, we’re both amazing. They had so much information to share and were so pleased to do so.

    Ahmed, what an amazing man! He was soooo helpful. I got a bit sick with an upset stomach and he regularly checked on me, making sure I was well hydrated and up to the next bit of the tour. He even escorted us back to the airport at a ridiculous hour of the morning! Nothing was a problem for him. Every request, he forefilled. He was waiting at our hotel about one hour before pick up every day! Apart for the history of Egypt, Ahmed is the jewel in the crown of this tour. Thank you Ahmed. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated!

    We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The fact that the group is small is fantastic and would happily give it a 5* plus rating.
    Thanks Mara House Luxor

    Touring Historic Egypt

    We toured with Mara and her amazing tour leader Ahmed and guides, both called Mohammed. The organisation of the tour was meticulous but allowed for minor variations to suit the group. Additional activities were added where possible including a felucca ride in Aswan.

    We especially enjoyed the temples in Abydos and Dendera which are seen by very few groups. We were also taken inside the pyramids and some rarely opened tombs in the valley of the kings which were amazing.

    The hotel accommodation was great, and a dinner in Mara House a highlight of the trip.
