How do I get from the ferry to the Hilton, without using a taxi?

Post by Who2 »

This Question was on FB.
Many answers said: walk lol....

My answer:

Have long legs, time and then just turn towards Karnack and keep walking or rather get a caleche or even a motor boat ride if the Hilton lets you land on their jetty..'If Walking ? Stop for a drink at Hamees floating bar before the new unused Corniche ...Admire Karnak temple keep walking. Be prepared to get hassled upon entering the village, keep walking, stop 3/4 of the way by getting a drink in a mad looking bar then carry on walking until you see a guarded posh driveway entrance, then try to convince the guards why you walked to the Hilton.... Ha! have fun!

The ferry is nowhere near Hamees bar, Sunset boat.
Much further along now. Walk directly up from the ferry on to the main road and loads of micro buses passing to take you to Karnak.
