Travel Options To Dahab
Whether you’re coming from Cairo by bus or flying from abroad, there’s an easy way to get to Dahab. Read on for up to date options for travelling to Red C Villas.
Go Bus to Dahab from Cairo:
A deluxe bus service is now running between Cairo and Dahab. The buses have comfy reclining seats, A/C and TV. The Go Bus Station in Cairo is very near the Egyptian Museum, which houses over 100,000 ancient Egyptian artefacts including Tutankhamun’s gold mask. The Museum is free except for the mummy room.
The Go Bus station in Dahab is centrally located near the bridge in Masbat Bay. Red C Villas is just a short distance away. It is pretty easy to grab a taxi during the day, but if you are arriving at night we can organise one to meet you.
Tickets can be brought at the station or online. The site is in English and Arabic. Once you have created a login, you can choose your seat and pay online. There are four buses that run each day and the prices are reasonable. The trip takes between 7 to 9 hours.
