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

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.

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.

Availability, Booking, Pricing and Questions –  Please contact Mara directly

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.

    The best thing about Mara House is Mara herself. Mara is warm and personable, and an invaluable resource with a wealth of information about traveling in Egypt. Before booking with her, she took the time to answer all of my questions about what to see, and the friendly email exchange helped to alleviate my concerns about booking. The rooms are well appointed spacious apartments, with strong internet connection. Meals here are delicious. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

    We had an incredible stay at Mara House Luxor last month……. what amazing hospitality. The dinner feast was one of the highlights of our trip, and the accommodation – a spacious apartment with atmospheric decor in an atmospheric Luxor neighborhood – was miles better than your typical hotel room. Mara and her team also looked after our daily tours in both Luxor and Cairo. There is no way we could have prepared and organized such a seamless visit on our own. It was truly a vacation we will never forget. Thank you!

    During the month of February 2019 & for 8 days, my son & I shared a wonderful adventure to Egypt courtesy of Mara Tours. Mara provided us with excellent flights, excellent accomodations, excellent food & ample opportunity to explore the cities of Cairo & Luxor.

    At times we felt like we were in a movie! Mara made sure we were surrounded with caring & informed guides as well as making sure we had a fine sense of the kind & great people of Egypt. Mara truly exceeded our expectations ensuring our comfort & accommodating our curiosity of a land that is rich in sights, sounds & history.

    Mara’s house is richly decorated which in turn invited us to enjoy Egyptian living & culture. We couldn’t be more pleased that we chose Mara tours for our adventure. Until we meet again, thank you Mara. Respectfully,
    Matthew J. Voytek, III.
