  Horse Carriages, Luxor
by Myndo

There seems to be no way around it.
Horse carriages can not only be found in Luxor, but also many in Edfu and some in Assuan.
Before you enter one of these carriages, make sure you haggle over the price (and maybe also if the Bakshish is includet yet, or not).
I would not pay more than 30 EP for a 1 hour ride.
Also have a look at the horse. Look how it is treated. It is well fed or are the rips showing all over?
I realize that a different culture also treats the horses different (and they are some very special ones, I could not see a horse where I live walking right next to -and through - honking cars and such) - but they beat the horses a little too much in my opinion.

Anyway, it is a nice way to see the city of Luxor and I would recommend to do it.

Directions: Luxor or Edfu
you will find many (or they you) on the Quai
