Hurghada to Cairo Destination Reviews

Toilet started smelling half way and none did anything to fix it
Bus Elite Plus, Go Bus, Dec 7, 2023
Ride was great, he was on time. Just the music was a bit loud some times. It didn't bother me, but it did bother my girlfriend.
taxi Standard 3pax, Egypt Holiday Makers, Oct 9, 2023
It was excellent! Fast and comfortable (I’m 1,85 and I go better than any plane because of leg space)
Bus Elite DD, Go Bus, Jul 30, 2023
The rear of the bus was too warm, the air conditioning was not sufficient. In addition, Egyptian men seem to think that European women are fair game. That was very uncomfortable.
Bus Deluxe Plus, Go Bus, May 8, 2023
The bus itself was comfortable. I was surprised by meal, was not expecting it at all! The floor in the toilet room was wet, but maybe it was just some random incident. The station is not clear also, I think it needs some improvement
Bus Elite Plus, Go Bus, Nov 22, 2022
It was shocking to see the driver throwing coffee cups and plastic water bottles out of the window as he was driving. He was also selecting music on his iPhone, wearing ear buds and smoking. The whole journey lacked safety. I cannot recommend Go Bus.
Bus Classic, Go Bus, Sep 23, 2022
We had two overnight Tours on GoBus. Cairo- Hurghada and back. One trip was really good: Quiet and good temperature. During the second one the busdriver was playing super loud music and it was freezing cold at the end. So both rides together we rate 3 stars. It is a good price for the tour and we woud take it again. :)
