Cairo to Luxor Destination Reviews

Driver was smoking cigarettes INSIDE the bus. Driver was driving fast. Driver had the TV on loud and all night and was watching while driving. Driver would honk excessively. No leg room on bus.
Bus Deluxe Plus, Go Bus, Mar 30, 2024
The DD class buses are twice as comfortable as Japanese night buses; the DD class buses are wider, have comfortable air conditioning, and even have TVs on the seats to watch movies. There were no disadvantages to using this bus other than the fact that Egyptian was on the phone without a care in the world around him.

Very insistent that I put my tiny rucksack with all my possessions under the bus. I refused because I have medicine, water, food and other stuff I need in there. They told me to put it in my handbag but it won’t all fit, hence why I always bring my tiny rucksack on board.

The October 6 bus stop is located in a very nice neighborhood where life is good and you feel safe. The first driver was very good, but the second was a little dangerous.

Sedět na motoru v tom teplém počasí je nesnesitelné. Zespod vedro, klimatizace autobusu se nedala uzavřír, takže na tělo mi byla zima. The toilet was unbearable. The door could not be cloused. The stench could be felt in the bus. Toilet paper was missing.

Bus was fairly on time and fairly clean. Though the onboard toilet is smelly. But I dislike the person who loaded by bad asked for tips. After giving him tips, he said not enough.

Look, the ride was good. But PRINCIPALLY the stuff people, the driver are very rude! I hope it changes soon! Because the company has everything to be the best one in Egypt. Also, please to keep in mind to arrive on time! Thanks

However, it was my fault. I did not realize that Nasr City was a specific Go Bus stop in Cairo when what I really needed was a Giza stop in Cairo. Nobody was able to help me, so I ended up simply buying another ticket. Also, purchasing through 12Go instead of Go-Bus directly put my seat in the WORST seat (back row, which does not recline for sleeping). Again, better to pick from Go-Bus directly in order to pick your own seat.

Luggage guy demands money for each bag to put it inside the bus! I had to get mad with him! Bad experience!
