I am going on my first trip this March - and as Egypt is totally new to me I am reading a lot in this forum.
On problem seems to be the correct haggling for Taxi- and Caleche prices.
I got this list from a German forum
Now - can you agree with these prices?
I will not be cheated - and will not be called a miser!
