The ancient sites in Luxor are divided between the East and West Banks of the river Nile.  99% of my guests at Mara House are busy people with a deep desire to explore Egypt.  They are also busy people taking time out of their usual work and family routines at home, who want to get in as much relaxation time as possible, during their foreign holiday.  To that end I offer an inclusive accommodation and tour package.

  • 3 nights accommodation at Mara House Luxor Hotel – your own private, apartment-size suite consisting of bedroom/s, sitting-room and bathroom

This package will save you hours of research before coming to Egypt and, wasted time after you arrive, finding your desired locations and how to get there.   My guides and colleagues will help you avoid the usual tourist traps and street hassle.  You will be well taken care of and we will ensure that your hours with us flow as smoothly and surely as the river Nile.

Why go on holiday?

Holidays are for quality time with family and friends, romance, relaxation, exploring interesting places, meeting interesting people, experiencing other cultures, broadening the mind, getting away from work, learning more about foreign places you are yearning to see, celebrating an event, celebrating life!  Have I left anything out?

That is what Mara House offers in this package.  Everyone who works with us has one thing on their mind, and only one thing – How to Give You the Best Experience of Egypt. You don’t have to take my word for it – just check out our reviews on TripAdvisor

    I contacted Mara early on in my planning to return to Egypt to explore the Upper Nile having already done Cairo. Mara was great to work with and I enjoyed finalizing arrangements with her for my travels there and stay at Mara House.

    I bought a full package of room and meals plus touring for 4 days. Mara House is great. My apartment was beautiful and the food served for all meals was excellent. The tours were well arranged with driver and guide. While some of the travel was long over land, it provided an opportunity to see real life in Egypt along the way, as did staying at Mara House in the city of Luxor.

    Her staff, led by Amr, were always welcoming, helpful and very friendly. I would not hesitate to stay again and I would strongly encourage anyone to make a stay here as part of their Upper Nile experience.

    The photos shown on the website for Mara House are accurate. There is no elevator, so you may want to consider that in terms of which floor you may be placed. But the staff will handle all your luggage. The roof top terrace is a lovey place to share a drink and conversation in the evening.
