If you can get away with paying 5 Egyptian Pounds - you're doing a fantastic job!!! Definitely try not to give more than 10 Egyptian pounds.

The best way to handle it is to stick you're arm out - and then when the taxi slows down state your destination through the window. Shout "Bahary" and this will take you almost there - when you get onto the cornich - point at the fort - you can't miss it!

When he stops get out and hand him the fare through the window - Easy!

Anyone that discusses price with a taxi driver before getting in - is automatically identified as a foreigner and the price will go up.
