Actually I have had two great cab drivers, Francciscow here in Dahab and one in Cairo who for less than $20 took us around to several places and waited for us to return for six hours. Both earned their tip. This post is for the driver in Cairo who after being told by interpreter and shown where on the map we wanted to go ended up going the wrong direction. As much as I insisted he was going wrong he insisted he knew the way. We wanted to go to the Egyption Museum and ended up twenty miles away. He then insisted this was better than the museum and wanted to charge us double. It was resolved peacefully but not quietly.
