Bus/ Shared transport from Luxor to Marsa Alam  (1 Answer)

Hi, I hope somebody could help!

I plan to go to Marsa Alam from Luxor (13 Dec 2014). I've been asking around for buses from Luxor to Marsa Alam, but have been told that there are no buses, only private transportation.

Is this really the case? I am travelling alone, so the price quoted for private transport is quite expensive (cheapest being 80 euro).

Are there no other means to get to Marsa Alam?

MARSA ALAM - questions about shopping, taxi, and bus connection  (1 Answer)

I am going to Marsa alam and would like to ask some questions:
1) I know that marsa alam is a small village only with hotels, but is there some market or shops with souvenirs?
2) Is there a regular bus connection to Luxor, or i must take a tour from some travel agency? Because i would like to travel to Luxor independently and from there go to Cairo, so i need just 1 bus trip to Luxor...
3) what are the rates for taxi from Marsa alam airport ? Are some taxis waiting in the airport, or need I to arrange the transfer in advance with the hotel?
Thanks
