Independent Travel Itinerary Check Please

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?

January 31 – Recover From Jet Lag / more chill day

I will be alone in Cairo and do not want to see any of the "awesome" sites as my wife will be joining me in the evening.

Evening - Fly together to Aswan

February 1 – Aswan - High Dam / Philae Temple / Obelisk / Felucca to the Elephants Island / Aswan Market / Nubian Villiage / Fatimid cemetery / evening boat ride to the cataracts

February 2 – Hire Private Driver to Luxor –
Day – See Kom Ombo / Edfu

February 3 – Luxor West Bank –

February 4 – Luxor East Bank

Have you considered adding s tour of Abu Simble? I just completed planning my tour in Egypt and this was one site I included. Additionally, you may want to consider extending a few days to a Red Sea resort. In researching I found that there are locations renowned for snorkeling/diving. I added Sharm El Sheik (flights out of Cairo) and there are many other recommended resort towns like Hurghada, which is a few hours drive out of Luxor and a 1 hour flight to cairo.
