I'm from Ireland and been living in Egypt since 2003. My first adventure in Egypt was to build Mara House in Luxor. I came to Egypt as a tourist initially so in looking after my guests I put myself in your shoes and do my best to provide you with everything that I would like myself.
Mara House in Luxor is well-known for the care we take of our guests. Whether you avail of our full range of sightseeing offers which cover Luxor, Cairo and Aswan or merely want our accommodation facility - we are happy to provide you with all the information you need to help plan your Egyptian adventure.
Regardless of what you have seen over the past 3 years in the media - the problems in Egypt have since the very beginning of Jan 2011 been confined to small and limited areas. Wherever you stay in Egypt your accommodation provider will always alert you to any possibility of danger - and there has never been any danger for tourists who followed that advice.
Egypt is a magical place but it is a country where detailed advance planning of your time is the best way to explore it - there is just too much to see to waste time trying to find your way around once you get there. Seeking out reputable and helpful hosts in Egypt is the best place to start your trip.
It will definitely benefit you to, at least, send me an exploratory request - Have a wonderful day!
