Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo Destination Reviews

TD
Above expectation for a local bus. Obviously old and a bit run down. But the aircon worked and was a smooth journey and streamlined through all the stops. Said it would be 8 hours and ended up being 6 and a half. Vehicle had a bathroom but did not use it.
