Hurghada to Cairo excursion by bus reviews

Went on the trip last week, the bus was clean and comfortable, although the drive is too long but we enjoy it. I have to say that I was amazed by the service the company provided, both tour guides were very knowledgeable, entertaining and interactive with the people on the bus. Our other guide was knowledgeable, but less interactive. the trip to Cairo is really worth to do it and Sharm Club make it better.
