Hurghada to Cairo Destination Reviews

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.

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. :)
