We took a carriage on the first day but no more. The drivers are auful to the horses. They run all day and night from 9am til 2 in the morning. Look a little carefully and you will see the whip marks around their back legs and under the belly. They whip them there so that the tourists dont see the marks. Use the taxis they are cheaper as well.
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
romantic enough like prince and princess if using a horse cart. just make sure about bargain and no additional baksheesh [tips].
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.
