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 two inclusive Luxor Holiday packages.

1.  Basic Luxor Holiday Package – 3 nights

2.  All-Inclusive 3 nights Luxor Holiday Package

This offer includes accommodation, tours and transfers as per the above package plus

  • 3 lunches, 2 dinners and 1 Salahadeen Feast
Additional Information
  • extra nights, if required, are at a reduced rate
  • free wi-fi
  • When possible we allow early check-in and late-check out with no extra charges.

These 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.

Availability, Booking, Pricing and Questions

Please contact Mara directly for all the above.  Mara House is NOT bookable via any online booking engines

Note:  We do not take you to shops, workshops, restaurants etc for payment or commissions during our tours or any other time.  This is worth keeping in mind when comparing offers from various tour operators etc.

    Good evening from Egypt Mara!

    My goodness….what an incredible place you have here! I could not have been more fortunate and owe you a debt of gratitude! All of the men have taken such good care of me — from the room and meals to the tours. They have been gracious, patient, attentive “handlers” and I could not have asked for more.

    The heat has been an issue for me. I have experienced 123 degree F heat in Arizona but that does not compare to this.

    Last night my stomach felt queasy and this morning was worse. That combined with the heat I made the decision to cut our long day of touring short. I feel bad but I knew that my feeling poorly would cause more problems if we kept visiting temples. Coming back Ahmed was gracious in getting me the “Mara medicine” and now, at almost 7pm I am beginning to feel better.

    So Mara…..I have only one suggestion. Way too much food! I feel embarrassed to only eat an amount that is appropriate for my stomach and then leave so much left. I do not like waste!
    You have truly put together a wonderful package for travelers and I will tell everyone I know! Also, you are so very well respected…as we were out and about so many said such positive remarks!

    The staff that you have along with drivers and tour guide are all treasures…so very fortunate to have been in their presence!
    Thank you again Mara…

    I’m just now getting around to writing reviews from my travel experiences this summer. I spent 4 nights and 5 days at Mara House and absolutely loved it. My room was VERY big, quiet, and comfortable. Mara’s team does everything possible to make sure their guests have a comfortable, safe and pleasant stay. My luggage was lost during my flights to Egypt and I had only one change of clothing. But Ahmed made sure I had fresh, clean clothes ready every morning, so I barely missed my luggage. The food at Mara House is wonderful, fresh and plenty! I especially appreciate how Mara arranges and plans the tours. No stress! And as for price… You can *try* to coordinate your hotel, transportation, tours, tour guides, meals, etc yourself but you probably will pay more and things will not go as smooth as what Mara has in the plan. Mara does all the work for you and it’s a blessing! It is a science! I recommend Mara House to everyone. Everything went according to schedule, yet I was never rushed. I even had free time in the afternoons and evening to experience Luxor. If you’re a solo female traveler wondering if Egypt is safe, it seemed very safe to me. I’ve been to several countries, but Egypt was my first Middle Eastern holiday. Egyptian people are very warm, friendly and welcoming. I hope to return many many times

    Mara carefully organized every detail of our vacation, airport transfer, 3 tours, flucca picnic at the Nile & a calesh ride around town.
    We also had 2 amazing dinners in their restaurant which is a must try!
    Rooms are clean, large, suite sized.
    Ahmed, the manager and Amr were extremely helpful. Mohamed, the tour guide is well knowledged.

    Mara House is a small amazing place hidden outside the usual tourist area, a wonderful experience.
