Booking trips on arrival Luxor to Asswan cruise

No idea what boat we will be on as travelling with bucket shop company!(Qwerty/You hotels) Haven't booked any excursions through the company. Is it easy / cheaper to book excursions off the boat? Any advice appreciated. thanks

The Egyptologist who is leading any trips that may be organised for other people on the same boat might be happy to include you in - for a fee that you could negotiate direct with him/her.

If you can't identify the Egyptologist, you could ask the purser or receptionist on the boat.

Alternatively, when you know which boat you are on, you could pop in to one of the travel agencies opposite the Winter Palace piers and see if they will do the negotiating for you. You should have plenty of time on board in Luxor before you sail to set something up.

The same agency may be able to set up a private excursion led by someone who meets you at the piers when the boat berths, but my guess is that this would be more expensive than adding you on to an excursion that is already happening.
