Accommodations While On Tour
We use only the very best in hotel and cruise accommodations in Egypt. 

While in Cairo you will stay at The Mena House.

Pyramid view room This hotel is set amid 40 acres of jasmine-scented gardens with the Pyramids towering above. It was originally a royal lodge used by Khedive Ismail, the King of Egypt, as a house for himself and his guests while on hunting trips in the desert or during visits to the Pyramids of Giza. With the opening of the Suez Canal, he enlarged the guesthouse to receive international and royal guests visiting the Pyramids. Empress Eugenie and Albert, Prince of Wales were among the guests for the opening.

In the 1880s, the guesthouse was bought by Fredrick Head who named it "The Mena House" after the first of the 76 kings on the famous "Tablet of Abydos". It was once again sold to an English couple, who turned it into a luxurious hotel. Although the fittings, architecture and decorations remained oriental in style, some English touches began to appear. At a time when balconies were unknown in hotels, the owners decided that every room should have an open balcony overlooking the Pyramids.

Mena House Oberoi, Cairo - an oasis of luxury and comfort

In the 1970s The Oberoi Group took over the management of The Mena House, adding it to their worldwide chain. The hotel was meticulously renovated and expansions incorporated. Under the Oberoi management, the hotel matched the highest standards of international hoteldom and became a member of "The Leading Hotels of the World".

One of the joys of staying at The Mena House is that so many of Egypt's magnificent treasures are just a stone's throw away. The Sphinx is literally on the other side of the golf course, and the site of the step Pyramid of Zoser and the legendary Tomb of Ti, only a little further away.

Famous royal personalities and notable politicians who stayed at The Mena House include Sir Winston Churchill, General Montgomery (Suites 623 & 706 are named after them), President Roosevelt, the Agha Khan and his Begum, King Mohammed, King Umberto, King Gustav (Suite 1014 is named after him), Presidents Nixon and Carter, General Moshe Dayan, Dr. Henry Kissinger and King Juan Carlos.


The Mena House Oberoi Hotel and Casino has also played host to some of the most famous cinema stars including Charlie Chaplin, Cecil B. DeMille, Robert Taylor, Omar Sharif, Barbara Hutton, Mia Farrow, David Niven, Peter Ustinov and the cast of Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile".

The Mena House Oberoi was witness to one of the pivotal events in the history of Egypt. All peace negotiations after the 1973 Ramadan War between Egypt and Israel were conducted at The Mena House Oberoi.


While in Luxor you will stay at The Sonesta St. George.

The Sonesta St George is one of Luxor’s newer hotels on the banks of the Nile next to the main shopping area and offering every comfort you’d expect of a top-class hotel and within minutes of Luxor Temple and Luxor Museum.
