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.

    Mara House provided the perfect experience for my first time and my Dad’s second time in Egypt. It was the best combination of culture and style. We were able to see how Egyptians truly live without being blinded by tourism.

    Our guide was wonderful and the planning of our schedule made everything easier to experience.

    The Feast was amazing and the chicken was fantastic. Amr was the best host imaginable and we will forever recommend Mara House.

    Thank you for everything!
