My wife and I will be in luxor for 5 nights nov15th-20th. And would like some advice on what to do as there is so much to see. We would like to avoid tour groups and prefer to do things independantly. I was thinking of staying near luxor temple so that we could walk to luxor temple and museum and maybee the mumification museum and then taxi to karnak temple and back for our first day. For our remaining days I was thinking of the following
day 2 cross to west bank to see collosi mnemon, rasmesuem, temple of seti and then dendara/temple of hathor
day3 valley of the kings, medinet habu, deir el bahari/hatshepsut mortuary temple and valley of the queens
day 4 I was hoping to go edfu/temple of hourus and maybee a boat trip around aswan or just edfu and back to luxor to relax before we leave for nuweiba on the 20th. I understand for days 2,3 and 4 we will need to hire a driver. Would we be able to cross to the west bank and work out a deal with a driver for the 3 days or should we try and arrange somthing before we leave. We would like a driver that would either wait for us at the sites or pick us up. We do not want a tour guide. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And I apologize if I have mispelled these historic sites.
