Luxor to Cairo?

I will be arriving in Luxor and am considering to join a tour from there. Is it easy to find a tour agent/guide from Luxor (including the Nile Cruise) and then subsequently to bring me to Cairo and back?
So far in this forum, most people are travelling from Cairo.
Will I be missing out if I choose to travel independently instead?

What's the average cost of a Nile cruise (3 nights)? And which one is the best value for money? And which hotel do you recommend for me to stay in Luxor and Cairo? I have a limited budget so I guess the 5 stars hotels are out.

The train between Cairo and Luxor is VERY cheap (overnight -- 2nd class -- air-conditioned) -- about $20 or less. That is the safest way to travel between Luxor and Cairo (besides flying). It is HIGHLY advisable NOT to drive or ride in a car on that trip due to the road conditions and the way the Egyptians drive.

You'll be surprised at how affordable the 5 star hotels are. We stayed at the Old Winter Palace in August for about $125 and it was FABULOUS!

Email me if you have additional questions.
