Brilliant photos but even they don't do the tombs justice - It's the experience of actually being there that is really magical!

“BEST TOUR OF OUR ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST TRIP! ”
We’d like to thank and recommend Mara’s services for providing a safe, solid, and unforgettable tour of the Giza Plateau, Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, Khan-el Khalili, and the Islamic district of Cairo.  Mara was very straightforward and accessible via email as we booked our last-minute tour and thank goodness we did because arranging visits to these amazing sites in Cairo is definitely challenging, even for the more experienced international traveler.
Our guide, Manar, was just precious and is literally one of the most educated and kind tour guides we have EVER been paired with.  She knows literally everything about Egyptian history and culture and we felt so safe and spoiled with her the entire time.  We entered the tomb of Khufu’s pyramid, saw the solar boat, Sphinx, and Valley Temple in the morning before the heat really set in.  Our driver was very safe and efficient (Cairo traffic/driving is seriously overwhelming) and it was a newer air-conditioned Toyota minibus.  We just loved Manar’s tour of the Islamic district and Khan el-Khalili.
Even if you consider yourself a more experienced international traveler, we highly recommend booking through Mara if you are visiting the sites in Cairo.  I can honestly say we 100% would have encountered incredibly frustrating situations had we not been with our guide Manar.  Now, we have amazing memories of our trip to Egypt without a single hassle!   Thanks so much!

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM A HOLIDAY?

What crosses your mind when you think about going on holiday – anywhere in the world?  All or most of the following run through my mind depending on where I am thinking of going:
“I want this to be a really fantastic holiday – God knows I can do with it!!”
“What is there to do and see there?  I don’t want to miss out on anything – but I want to relax too!”
“Where do I start in organising this?  And…
