    We have a few people with properties in El Gouna including Crombiestone and Distantdreamer so I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread. Any info on the next phase of development would be much appreciated.

    Hi Stevie

    If you're looking for a resale I've some friends that live in El Gouna that usually know of property thats available, so if you could be interested let me know your requirements and private mail me your details and I'll see if they know of anything. The advantages of buying resales is that they are generally in the best locations and you can see what views etc you will be getting. Obviously prices in El Gouna are a fair bit higher than the likes of Hurghada, but we feel the resort is certainly worth it and have been very happy with our investment.:)

    Does anyone know if there is a free shuttlebus service from El Gouna to Hurghada?

    The ex-girlfriend is coming to visit me at the start of March and got a good deal at the Sheraton there.

    I remember that, when I was trying to get a taxi out of there, it cost an arm and a leg and so I am hoping that there is a cheaper way of her getting to Hurghada.

    Bus from El Gouna


    There is no free shuttle bus from El Gouna to Hurghada but there is a regular bus service which runs every 20 minutes and costs only 5LE (50p approx) which is much cheaper than a taxi.

    Thanks for that info, crombiestone.

    50p is close enough to free as to not make too much of a difference! Certainly compared to the GBP15 or something that the taxi monopoly stung me for getting out of the place last time.

    Its sort of the culture in Egypt . You need to embrace it to some extent or you will drive yourself nuts . You are not in Kansas or (insert home town) any more .

    they call it the Egyptian mafia i was out there in November they was over charging for visa stamps then when wanted a taxi was approached buy some one offering a list of prices so went with him but told him wanted better price was shown the driver also told him was not happy with the price and offered him £5 and was told to get in the car but i still insisted was only offering £5 but as he insisted was a £15 fare we got back out and walked back to the terminal but was not allowed back in so asked some one else for a taxi offering still £5 then the 1st person came back over shouting and pushing the 2nd person for talking to us so in between all that wee went over to some one else who took us in old scraper car for the £5 i do not mind haggling but was not a good 1st impression for the lady i took with me

    I took the shuttle bus from El Gouna to Hurghada yesterday (or was it the day before? - this Sundays are like Mondays in Egypt business is really messing with my head) and I managed to get it for LE2.50 - or 25p.

    A lot better than the taxi out which cost me LE50. I should have gone with the meter as I should have got it from LE35 in that case. Live and learn.

    Mind you, I am being such a complete b*****d squabbling with the taxi drivers in Hurghada that I fear that I will be a marked man if I carry on like this much longer.

    Hope your sales are not that bad that you need to haggle over a 50p bus ride ;)
