“13 NIGHTS touring EGYPT with Mara herself”.  Visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan.  Experience Egypt from Pharaonic times right through the Medieval and Islamic periods.   Travel in luxury on a 7 night Nile Cruise from Luxor – Aswan – Luxor.

The cost of these trips do not reflect the value of the experience you will have with Mara.  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.

PRICINGEarly booking will certainly save you quite a few dollars because I can guarantee that the price of all my trips and packages will increase several times between now and their 2019 dates due to the rising cost of everything in Egypt.

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

  • you know the cost of
  • 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.

and those priorities are what my initial planning is based on.  After that I choose the best sites but leave other options open to your personal preferences, provide great guides I can trust and leave you some relaxation time on top of that.


  • Cairo – sites include Giza Plateau, Gt. Pyramid, Solar Boat, Gayer Anderson House, Ibn Tulun Mosque, Antiquities Museum at Tahrir Sq., Tutankhamun’s Treasures, Mummy Room at Museum, Medieval Cairo, Khan El Khalili, Islamic and Coptic Cairo etc.

    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!

    10/10 stars

    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.
