Route by land

Mar7aba Egyptian CS!
I am headed through your beautiful country by land, crossing near Nuweiba in Sinai.
My question is, what is the best route to take. From Nuweiba I will head south to Dahab and Sharm, but then how should I get to the main chunk of the country...do I have to take a bus all the way up to Cairo and then head back south to visit Luxor, Aswan, etc... or is there a crossing from Sinai in the south by boat? I would prefer to go South to NOrth since I plan on continuing towards Turkey. THank you for your help! See you soon!

i looked it up and found that there are buses from Hurghada to Luxor which you can book from Hurghada (Upper Egypt bus company) and the ticket costs around 40 EGP for non Egyptians
as for the ferry here's a link for the time table and all data needed:
