Questions -

Would anyone recommend getting a guide at any of these areas or is most of our itinerary doable by ourselves.

1 - Is there anything that we should add to our itinerary at each location?
2 - Does anyone see any problems in the itinerary or have we over planned any of our days?
3 - Any recommendations on companies to hire a driver / guide to drive us from Aswan to Luxor? What is a fair average price for this?
4 - Are there any other things to consider booking ahead of time (besides hotel / transportation) to make things easier for us?
