HELP!

I'd appreciate contact info for tried and trusted car & driver/s in Luxor. One of the chaps I normally use isn't available my dates and the other I can't make contact with.

Thanks in anticipation - bFS

Boring, I will give you the details of the taxi driver I use, I have his card (as we are going on the same plane, i will give you his card then, good chance to eat your chocky bickies lol).

The guy I use is a friend and I have used him very many times befor, even going to see his family everytime we are over in Luxor and it goes without saying I will use him again this trip.

Thanks Bob - looks like I'm going to have to get another packet of chocky bickies! lol!

Fear I may have actually recommended my own regulars too well and not actually booked for myself in time. One is getting back to me with his friends contact info but I want to play safe.

Am I right in thinking Mohamed and Khaled are drivers (only)?

Hass has quoted me for driver/guide/fees. I know [roughly] how much the fees will be so can compare accordingly. I guess it just depends (if prices are very different) if I need a guide.

I was quoted 1200LE for East and West bank for whole day all inc.

You state "I was quoted 1200LE for East and West bank for whole day all inc."

Hopefully my fellow contributor Bob62 has put you back on the correct path!!

As is written many times on here, in Sept my wife & I paid 1100LE for 1 day and a 1/2 day with driver and guide. We drove down the Luxor-Aswan road almost the whole way on day one and nearly 1/2 way on day 2 - All site prices were included!

thanks for this.

The itinerary (2 adults and 2 young children) is:

Pick us up from Luxor airport to visit:

West Bank :Collossi of Memnon Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut temple

East Bank Luxor and Karnak temple then back to Luxor airport.

Price includes entrance fees etc.

Bob - as have all you guys - has been really helpful putting the price into perspective for me.

I have added-up that entrance fees would cost 814LE for us

It looks like I might be paying 100-200Le more than I would just for a (well-respected) driver.....but have a guide as well in this scenario.

In February through our accommodation we paid 50EGP for a driver each afternoon (we stretched out our sightseeing over a week), tickets were not included and we chose our own itinerary.

Although no guide was included we did have a good book and lots of offers of information from temple guards of course! ;)
