Cairo is the most amazing city in the world.  If you stay for a month you still will not see or experience it in full – not even close!  However, most people coming to Cairo just want to see the highlights in a short time. 

The average stay is 3 days and this is why we offer a 3 night package, which includes 3 nights in 4 star Cairo hotel and 2 days touring.  No problem if you have more than 3 days to spend in Cairo and would like us to extend your tour.  We are happy to add on extra days.  Just to go to our Tours in Cairo page for the full list of our day tours there

    I want to thank Mara for the wonderful trip that we just finished. My daughter and I just left Cairo a day ago and already we miss it! We truly had the greatest experience of ur lives. The people, the culture, the city and even the traffic (lol) are all a marvel. I’m so happy that I found Mara online. I am 100% positive that without her service we would not have had the experience that we did. Our trip ran extremely well and smooth. Prior to leaving the USA I probably emailed Mara ten times with questions. And, I literally got a reply in seconds, no matter the time of day. It was that personal attention that made me feel very comfortable that this was a legitimate program. She gave us great instructions on how to get through the airport and find Fatma, our assistant. Fatma was waiting for us in a sea of people, with a big smile and warm welcome. Our driver was there and the next the we knew we were off to the hotel. The hotel was great. It was very safe, pretty, clean and the staff were all amazingly helpful and attentive. Fatma was extremely easy to speak to. Her English was fantastic and she immediately enlightened us about the area and what would transpire over the week while we were there. She was awesome! The next two days we were met by Mohammed, he was a wealth of information. In addition, to the traditional tours that Mara has on her website, we loved the fact that when we wanted to do other things, like a felucca ride, Fatma set the whole thing up for us, made sure we didn’t get price gouged, met up with us and took us for the boat ride. This kind of personal attention was priceless! The drivers were wonderful, the minivans were extremely clean, in great condition and air-conditioned. On a scale from one to ten I would give this experience a 100! everything went according to plan, it was easy, and smooth. In all honesty there is no better way to see Cairo than to use this service. I met someone on the plane ride back to the USA, who loved Cairo but was extremely unhappy since she didn’t have a guide service. She was constantly over paying and without an professional egyptologist, like Mohammed to fill you in on the history of Egypt she said she left not really understanding the things she was looking out. But that was not our experience at all. Great Trip! I completely recommend it!

    Well we are back from our trip in April and sort of settled down.
    Fantastic trip organised by the Mara House team in Cairo and Luxor. Australian family of 4 with 2 boys under 12. Fantastic tours in Cairo and Luxor.
    We toured in April and were kept fully up to date and directions for pick ups from airports and how to get through them as well.
    Mara House was fantastic. My wife was eyeing off the furniture. Great location and great staff. Tour guides were fantastic, Fatima made our Cairo trip excellent.
    Thanks guys it was the best trip we have ever done and would like to come back sooner rather than later. Cannot recommend Mara Tours enough.

    We booked a 10 day trip with Mara House. Her team handled all arrangements as documented on her website. We arrived in Cairo and Fatima picked us up and transferred us to the Ramses Hilton (old hotel will review separately).

    Over the time we were in Cairo Fatima was attentive and available for all questions. While in Luxor Ahmed was extremely attentive and coordinated our entire stay. He went above and beyond what any hotel concierge or staff would.

    Mara House is very nice and the food was great, however if you want a hotel experience Mara House may not be for you since its on a residential area, but I would take this over any hotel in Luxor. The tours were great, we learned a lot and the best part for us, not for Egypt, is that most tour sites where empty. Thank you Mara and team!!!
