Train from Aswan to Luxor

Hi there,

We are travelling to Egypt soon.

We will need to go from Aswan to Luxor at one point. This will be on a Monday.

We are 3 European girls, and we wanted to ride the train to Luxor.

Could you give me informations? I read somewhere (but may be old sources) that they don't sell tickets to foreigners.

We would like to go on the morning, 1st class air con.

What are the prices and timetable?

Any tips and infos are highly appreciated

thanks in advance!

I did a return trip Luxor-Aswan and back in 2016, but I don't think much will have changed.

While The Luxor-Aswan was 4 hours late getting to Luxor from Cairo, it left Aswan on time at 10:00 since that is the end-of-line so there should be no delay.

We got our hotel's concierge to organise tickets for us. It was the Business train with reserved seats. https:/… There was a snack/drinks trolley.

Toilets are another matter though!
