Luxor and the Pyramids are in different parts of Egypt.
You'd have get a flight or take a cruise up the Nile, so give yourself a couple of days.
The Pyramids themselves are fantastic, I went to the â€œGreat Pyramidâ€ which is in Cairo. Itâ€™s the most famous and has a couple others around it. You also get to go in which is a once in a lifetime experience. As its so hot the tours are mainly in the morning, before lunch. There are light shows in the evening, but I never got to see one.
For photoâ€™s Iâ€™d suggest the early morning. But not right at them. Travel a mile or so beyond.
Egypt itself is safeâ€™ish. The locals will drive you mad, they just donâ€™t take no for an answer. But there are police out in great numbers whoâ€™s sole job is to look after tourists. Unfortunately travelling across the countryside is still dangerous. Therefore the buses go in convoys, with police escorts. Donâ€™t let that put you off because tourism is their biggest industry so they really look after you.
