Luxor to Cairo Destination Reviews

Space between sits was too short, we left late and the bus stoped in every place that we passed. Of course we arrived late.
Bus Classic, Go Bus, May 24, 2023
Left late, arrived early, no internet, entertainment was intermittent. Stopped to pick up extra guests and we were hanging around at 4 in the morning for Ramadan celebrations and feasts. Need to work on providing a professional service.
Bus Elite DD, Go Bus, Apr 2, 2023
1. Arrived an hour earlier than expected. 2. Few people on the bus which allowed passengers to have 2 seats to themselves. Seats were pretty comfortable and in good condition. 3. Wifi didn't work but had access to a great selection of movies. 4. Drive wasn't that smooth. Was abruptly woken up a couple of times due to hard stopping. 5. Overall felt safe on the bus. 6. The man placing the suitcase on the bus asked for 10 Egyptian pounds. Ignored and went on the bus. No other haggling attempts were made.
Bus Super Go, Go Bus, Feb 27, 2023
Whoever says bad things about gobus is an ignorant, its great, reliable, cheap and comfortable, just like FlixBus in Europe, you cant get any better in Egypt, its very modern
Bus Classic, Go Bus, Nov 26, 2022
