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.

    A truly awesome experience!!
    Mara and her band of fantastic helpers made our trip to Egypt an unforgettable one!
    The history and architecture are truly beyond belief. No photo really really does the place justice. The chaos of Cairo just added to the appeal for us.
    Logistically a small tour is by far the best way to see this amazing place. The difference with Mara’s tour is that we visited no shops or places where the guides received commissions for us purchasing items.
    We found flexibility and friendliness were the norm from Ahmed, Amer and the two Mohameds.
    Karen and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Egypt and have no hesitation in recommending Mara’s tour!!

    Couldn’t recommend Mara’s tours highly enough. From ancient temples to the streets of modern day Cairo, Mara’s team of expeirnced guides gave us an incredible expirence that fee could match. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe, included, and engaged throughout the entire trip-a quality which speaks both about Egypt as a country and the wonderful people I was allowed to meet along the way. Truly, I don’t believe there’s another, or better, way to experience Egypt!

    Mara and her guides provided a terrific, once in a life-time, experience of ancient Egypt and so much more insight into the country and it’s people past and present.

    Good hotels, transport (our trip included buses, horse & carriage, luxury Nike cruise, small Nile water taxis), security, and shopping. Exceeded my expectations.
