What will we talk to you about?

We will tell you about people and places of historic and modern day interest.  Places, buildings and objects mean nothing to me without the stories behind their builders, owners or users.  We continually strive to research and incorporate more and more human stories about the people who lived in our historic places into our tours.

What will we NOT do?

Our tours are not “boot camps” where you are bored to death with dates and uninteresting historic facts for a couple hours and then spend the rest of the day in a factory shop.  We will NOT take you shopping during designated tour time.  But, don’t worry – you will have plenty time for shopping outside tour times if you want.

If Egypt is your dream trip or on your “bucket list” I advise early booking as the number of places on each trip is limited to 15.  Ask for full details

All the trips and packages I offer are based on my own personal experience – not because I believe I know what is best for everyone else, but because I do believe everyone deserves a quality and hassle free holiday.  So, while I don’t personally know you, I do presume you would like a trip where

  • you know the full cost of what you are buying
  • that has no hidden extras
  • gives you a real feel for the country and customs
  • helps you avoid the tourist traps.
  • is hassle free
  • eliminates the need for decision making on subjects you have little or no knowledge what your choices may entail.

    I joined a small group tour during Nov 2019 with Mara House tours. Everything was taken care of in such a great way. The tour included a wide variety of experiences. The tour manager Ahmed and tour guide Mo really spoiled us with many surprises and were always available to support us in any way needed and more! Ensure that your tour include a stay over at Mara House in Luxor for at least two nights for a special Egypt experience.

    I felt safe at all times. The security in Egypt is of very high standard. Apparently recently voted second best in middle east and eight in the world. They also have a special Tourist Police unit which is very visible and caring towards tourists.

    Do yourself a favour and visit Egypt with Mara from Mara House to plan and organise your tour.

    We are just finishing our tour of Egypt with Mara, Ahmed and the team. What an amazing tour it has been. Thank you so much for looking after us and showing us Ancient Egypt, medieval Egypt and modern day Egypt. You have given us a holiday of a lifetime. Diane and Frank Abbley

    So glad we went with the Mara house team for our first trip to Egypt. Ahmed is the superstar of logistics and took care of everything we needed. The guides (both Mohammad’s) were so knowledgeable about all things Egypt and taught us so much. The sites were amazing and the people were friendly, what more could you ask for on vacation. If you have been curious about visiting Egypt – definitely go and don’t hesitate to plan through the Mara House team.
