We`re about to book an individual trip to Egypt for this autumn.
The "problem" is that our charter airline this autumn/winter only flies from our hometown to Hurghada Airport and we would love to stay at our favourite hotel Brayka Bay Resort in Marsa Alam again, which is 250km south!
We love Brayka Bay Resort because it is so "green" with lots of vegetation, palms etc and because of the stunning housereef for snorkelling, of course!
Our idea is to now book individual = charter flights to Hurghada with one tour operator here and then transfer/hotel with a different tour operator here. We have e-mailed Brayka Bay Resort and they say that it is no problem for them to get us at Hurghada Airport with a taxi and drive to Brayka Bay. They have a fixed price for this and it would take approx. 3 hours.
The "problem" for us are the flight times, arrival Hurghada 17:50 afternoon and departure Hurghada 05:00 early morning, which would mean that our taxi transfer from Hurghada-Marsa Alam would be late evening/middle of the night. Is that a problem really or are we overreacting?
Is it safe to have a taxi ride late at night from Hurghada-Marsa Alam?
Any suggestions would be really helpful, thanks!
