How To Go To Esna

Trains are a pain because the train station is on the opposite (east) bank of the Nile, away from the town center, but pick up trucks go back and forth between the two.

The busy truck station is beside the canal, and a block further north is servees and minibus station.

A seat in servees or minibus to Luxor is around E£5 to Edfu E£4.50 and to Aswan E£12.

Arrivals are generally dropped off on the main thoroughfare into town along which hantour (horse-drawn carriage) drivers congregate in the hope of picking up a fare.

They ask E£50 for the five- to 10-minute ride to the temple and return.
