As an alternative, taxis are extremely inexpensive.

I have no references for you, but if experience of other travelers is of assistance, you might not even be able to travel on your own outside of Luxor. Where do you want to go?

Most land tours that leave from Luxor go with an armed military support group to be certain visitors are protected. To me, that indicated it might not even be safe to travel on your own. Besides, once leaving Luxor you're out in the desert and that can be tricky. It'll be easy to get lost, sense of direction is off, what if you get stuck in the sand, a breakdowns of any sort... not very easy to get someone to assist. You'd be on your own. Most every adventure into the dessert goes with two vehicles.

I'd take the suggestion mentioned above, and hire a taxi for wherever it is you might want to go.
