I don't think many places will offer a day trip to Cairo from Hurghada. If you can do it it will require flying both ways since it would take about 8 hours each way by bus. I have seen overnight trips available. Neither of these options will be particularly cheap.

The usual day trip by bus from Hurghada is to Luxor. These trips normally start about 5am and finish about 10pm as it's a 4 hour journey each way.

daytrips to cairo by bus are possible. it takes at least six hours to get there, so i think it's better to make a two-day trip. if you make your resevations at one of the tourist shops, it's not too expensive. for a one day trip, it's about 60 dollar pp.

You can actually pre plan a day trip using a flight from Hurghada to and from Cairo.

Tour Eygpt-Hamburg Travel are a company that can organise the trip for you and will book the flights etc. You can EMail them your request at touregypt@gmail.com and they will tell you how much it will cost.

Hope you have a great holiday - will be there again myself next year.
