I'm trying to book a guide + Taxi for a day in Cairo and just can't get over the fees they are charging!
I've mailed a few people on the recommended forum, and they are coming back with $60-100 (USD) per person for a day, most without including the entrance fee to Giza pyrmaid. When I try to negotiate they come back with "this is my lowest rate/My rates are fixed"....
From what I've read Taxi for a day only costs about 150-200EL.
Now, I've read a head teacher earns as little as £50 sterling per MONTH in Egypt - if this is true, I can't believe some (as good as they may be) are charging twice that in a day. It must be the equivalant of a guide in London earning £4000 sterling for a day's work!
Am I being ripped off here or is the price of guides in Cairo out of sync with rest of the country?
