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, fantastic staff.

    We recently completed a large group trip. Our group Manager Ahmed is very organized and super easy to communicate with. Both Egyptologists Mohammad A. and Mohammad H. were very knowledgeable and always willing to answer our questions and appeared to really enjoy their work. We had excellent drivers and saw so many more sites then expected and more then were promised. This trip is great for history buffs and the value you get for money spent is amazing. Egyptian culture, particularly the tipping and shopping were hard to get used to but Ahmed was very patient with us and gave us guidance whenever needed.

    Ten Days in Egypt
    We spent ten days in Egypt this month with Mara and her excellent staff which included Ahmed, who was on 24 hour call for anything we needed, and Amer, her delightful cook at Mara House.

    Our tour was great value for the money we paid and included all the sights promised, from Cairo to Luxor to Aswan. We saw many temples and tombs and Mara and her team did their best to keep us ahead of other tour groups by carefully coordinating our visit times. The hotel rooms were basic but good and breakfasts at the hotels and on the cruise were plentiful.

    We came away with a great understanding of Egypt’s history and culture – Ancient, Islamic, Christian and modern. The tour vibe was casual and comfortable.

    We always felt safe as Mara and her team coordinated with the security men assigned to us and always knew where we were. We learned an amazing amount in a relatively short period of time!
