Price: 1,- LE (per person)
Eagerly they await outside the favourite tourist spots and hotels....their beady eyes noticing even the smallest movement of a tourist. Silently, they shelter within the dark confines of their carriages awaiting the fresh tourist meat to emerge from the safety of the hotel reception. As you emerge they descend like a hoard of locusts, a swarm of carnivorous leeches eager to make the first strike. Even when you say NO or La they cannot comprehend. They will stalk you, they will harrass you, they will make you get in even if you are only walking twenty yards.
One carriage driver gets my recommendation for his diplomacy, courtesy and overall demeanour. Well done Achmed Bedowi carriage number 110 stationed outside the Emilio Hotel. Give him my regards when you see him and his horse Jemila. He can be a little overbearing but he his honest and fair and will offer some great advice on where to go, who to see and who to stay away from. He knows all the local rogues and all the scams and you would do well to heed his advice.
romantic enough like prince and princess if using a horse cart. just make sure about bargain and no additional baksheesh [tips].
Take a carriage ride around Luxor. You get to drive through residential areas and observe daily life.
For a ride through the town or for a visit to the Temple of Karnak (4KM from the the Luxor Temple) you can take a carriage.
