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.

    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!

    Outstanding Tour of Egypt

    Just back from the October Small Group tour by Mara House, in a word outstanding. As an experienced independent traveler had some concerns about doing a group tour however our group of 12, plus Ahmed (tour manager) and accompanying Egyptologists, helped make the trip.

    The tour covered all the major sites and more, providing an insight into the life of past and present Egyptians. While we saw pyramids and the tombs of kings we also saw tombs of the nobles and common workers. We covered both Islamic and christian Cairo. Favorites being Saladin’s Citadel and the church the holy family hid out in for 3 months.

    At times it felt like we were VIP guests, getting access to sites either first (inside the great pyramid) or almost the only visitors to an area. A great tour run by great people.
