Cost of a trip on fiacre is usually included in cost of cruise. Therefore guides usually warn tourists of that they did not give in on requests of drivers to pay for a trip one more time. However it appears to be made uneasy.

From quay up to the Temple our driver was demanding extra money. As I liked the trip - he valiantly urged on a horse and we have overtaken on road some other fiacres, I have decided to give him 1 dollar. He has quickly seized money and has rushed to demand extra payment from my fellow travellers.

On our back way all this has repeated again. However now he asked to exchange a dollar for Egyptian pounds. It proceeded during the whole way to the boat and it was already unpleasant enough. He spoiled the impression...
