Personal Tour Guide

My wife and I will be flying into Luxor for a day in July and we need to book the services of a tour guide.....someone who would pick us up from the airport, take us to the sights and provide local knowledge etc etc.

If anyone has any good contacts they could provide I would be eternally grateful !!!

I am sure their prices include entrance fees and lunch...so at £45 each it isn't expensive....entrance fees alone will be around £15 each depending on what you want to see plus they pick up and drop off at Cairo airport too.

You would probably be paying £100+ each with an agent in Luxor ...Jolley's quoted me last year £120 (though this did include flights) per person for the exact same thing after i bargained them down that is...lol !!!...

Recently I got a price from a guide in Cairo ...the guide wanted $120(about £63) for the day excluding entrance fees and lunch...whilst it works out good to share these costs in a group ...between two people there would be minimal saving if any...

Saying that I am biased because i have used reallifeegypt before!!!!

The reason I think that is expensive is that I have also got a quote for a personal guide in Cairo including air conditioned transport to and from the airport for $25 US each. I know that doesn't include entrance to the sites or Lunch but it is substantially cheaper.

Yes that is very cheap....if it is a genuine quote from a genuine guide then that is a good price.....who is this guide? who recommended him/her? do they have a website? be interesting to read about their services at them prices for sure

Personally I would go sooner pay a little more and go to reallifeegypt who have had brilliant reviews from loads of different forum members on this site rather than risking a complete unknown.You are after all only talking of saving a few pounds.
