1, Could i catch a bus to cairo, at night preferably, from Hurghada, on the 27th after i arrive? Are tourists allowed on the local buses ?(i have no problem with travelling on the local buses...)
2. From Cairo, could i get a bus to the Taba border easily?
3. Is this something i would have to plan in advance at, say, a travel agency? Or could i get a bus when i arrive into Hurghada?
Thanks so much for your time.

2What a schlep. These timetables may be of interest. Its approx 7 hours up to Cairo from Hurghada by bus, but there are also internal flights.
You may find from Cairo the bus route to Taba, now goes via Sharm el Sheik.
And before you ask the Hurghada to Sharm ferry, is no longer operating AFAIK.

3Thanks for all the help! Do you think, arriving at 16:10 getting the bus to Cairo and then Cairo to Taba is worth while? Or should I just fly to Sharm from hurghada and get the ferry? As if I need to get to Israel in a quick time. As from what I've read there is no guarantie ill be allowed on the buses...
