I am a regular at Luxor, to escape winter. I had been overcharged many times by taxi drivers till I was a recommended a taxi service by my hotel. The taxi is an MPV and is extremely spacious with lots of leg room. It comfortably seats 4 huge adults and the air-conditioning is unbeatable. The driver, Mr Hargard is an affable man who will provide a free guide on what to do, the best places to eat and shop in Luxor. The best thing is he charges the same fares as the smaller taxis. He provides rides to Sharm El Sheik, Hurgada and Aswan, as well as to and from the Luxor airport. Over beers, he would often advise me on what to look out for in Luxor as well as where to get the best deals for whatever I wish to buy. Mr Hargard is a good driver and friend to have in Luxor and I highly recommend his service, especially for people who use wheelchairs or walking aids, as there is plenty of space for getting in and out of the car. Mr Hargard can be contacted at
+20 1114409007 or 01114409007(local) via calls or sms. He speaks English and Arabic.

I have absolutely no idea. I have had only a couple of beers with him. He is a an affable and helpful chap who will handle your luggage with the utmost care and will advise you on where to go and what to do if you ask him. You might have to speak slowly and loudly over the phone with him as his spoken English is slightly guttural and he might have a little trouble deciphering your accent. He can be contacted at +20 1114409007 or 01114409007 via call or sms. What I really like about his service are his rates and the leg room in his taxi.
