Taxi to Hurgharda ?

Post by Who2 »

Anyone know of a good and not to expensive Taxi to El Gouna just past Hurgharda ?

I have used Oceanus travel, near to Sheraton, and a!ways found them reliable and they do not overcharge. Also they have very comfortable cars

I've not done that route, but I'd second Oceanus as giving good service and not overcharging (at least not vs equivalent local businesses).

We always use Oceanus at the hotel for long distance travel. Totally reliable and the best prices.
