What a Private Guide can Do for You
Guiding is more than showing stuff!
A private guide to visit Luxor is an excellent investment. I can save you a lot of time and show you things you would have missed otherwise.
This doesn’t always mean visiting archaeological sites. It can include visiting the countryside. Getting in touch with the local population and learn their way of life. For a tourist, this is not always easy. You don’t know who to turn to and you risk falling into the hands of people who don’t always have the best of intentions. If you ask me to show you the “real” Egypt I can introduce you to personal acquaintances or family members who own their own farm.
In most cases, if you book an excursion with a representative of a tour operator, you will spend some time of the trip in a souvenir shop or any other venue which has no relation whatsoever with the theme of the excursion.
Having me as your guide means that we will spend our time at the sites or points of interest you have decided on. If you are interested in souvenir shopping, If you really want to, I will take you to a decent shop where you can find quality without being ripped off. The most looked after items are papyrus or alabaster vases, cups and vessels.
