3 Nights – all inclusive at Mara House Luxor including accommodation, meals and tours to the most important historical sites in Luxor.  Our clients are discerning, independent travellers wanting guaranteed unique, quality experiences.   We will show you Luxor over 3 days – bookable anytime of the year.  Tour the best Luxor sites and savor our authentic home cooked food.

Mara House is NOT ON THE TOURIST strip, nor on the Nile.  We are in a normal, ordinary Egyptian street, among the locals, behind the train station.  Despite our best efforts the streets are dirty and a western person could be forgiven for thinking we are in a poor area.  We are not.  It is simply that Egyptians do not have the same priorities we do when it comes to what is outside the front door.  If you want to experience normal daily life in Egypt then Mara House is for you.  If you prefer the usual 5 star hotel surroundings in the street then you need go to the tourist strip.

This package will save you hours of research, keep you out of tourist traps, give you the company of great guides and is a good balance between activity and relaxation.  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.

    I would highly recommend Mara House. Mara was very helpful in organising my stay and tailoring tour options to suit the time I had available. She was also very accommodating, allowing me to return to the room after my day of touring and rest and shower before my flight in the early hours of the following morning. The house itself is beautifully decorated and comfortable, and I really appreciated the fact that it wasn’t on the ‘tourist strip’.

    The tour itself was brilliant. Mohammed was very knowledgable and friendly and made my tour of the Valley of the Kings and associated sites, plus Luxor Temple well worth the visit! Ahmed the driver was also wonderful.

    Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mara House to anyone visiting Luxor

    This is a private house turned hotel. Its owner, Mara, is a woman from County Cork Ireland who came
    to Egypt looking for a new life. What she and her family and staff have created is a home fit and
    outfitted for a sheik! She has used Egyptian aesthetic, furnishings and feel to make an amazing place to
    stay while in Luxor.

    She offers full packages on her website including meals, event tickets and a tour
    guide. If you find her online, her suggestions on what to pack, dealing with the heat, etc you will find a
    treasure trove.

    The rooms are suites. I stayed in #2 which is a queensized bed with a sitting are plus a real sitting area with
    a mini-bar, sink and counter. Everything is made, done and completed with commitment to making the
    guest feel comfortable and welcome.

    The staff, headed by Amr, his wife and three year old son, is superb. He is the host and chef and is
    miraculous. His meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner are wonderful and served with grace.

    Mohamed is the house guide. He is knowledgeable, speaks excellent English and shows you everything
    at the antiquity sites, will take you down the Nile if you choose that package (I’m sitting on the boat
    waiting to start the journey from Luxor to Aswan), and does not try to take you shopping.
    Mara House uses three different drivers who will take you safely from place to place.
    I give this house not a five star rating, but twelve.
