if you can not find Ashad
find a carriage driver you like, then use him during your full stay in Luxor,
Drivers are more then willing to meet you at a specific time and place,
Say "Be back tomorrow at my hotel or be here tomorrow at 2pm", they will be there!
Again Always agree on a price before going anywhere, agree on the price for the next days adventure also

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.
Take a carriage ride around Luxor. You get to drive through residential areas and observe daily life.
