"Take me to the river" Ferry Tip by TheLongTone

Ferry, Luxor: 16 reviews and 29 photos


You can cross the Nile to the West Bank either by ferry or motorboat.

The ferry costs 1 LE and the boats run throughout the day. I didn't notice whether they adhered to any schedule, but I never had to wait very long before the boat cast off.

The motor boats - aggressivly touted even when you are obviously heading towards the ferry - cost 5 LE and up.

Type: Ship/Boat

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
