How To Go To Edfu

The temple is often included on Nile cruise itineraries but can also be reached from Aswan or Luxor, by train or road. The railway station is on the east bank and coaches often only stop on this side too.

There are frequent trains heading to Luxor and Aswan throughout the day, although most are the 2nd and 3rd class only and not suitable even for an average traveler. 

A taxi from Luxor takes around two hours and one and a half hours from Aswan. As of 2009 visitors no longer need to travel as part of the police convoy. Tickets cost EGP 50.

If you are on a Nile Cruise then Hantours “Horse Carriage” take passengers from the waterfront to the temple or vice versa.
