"Taxis are good" Muhafazat al Minya Transportation Tip by MontyOfEgypt

Muhafazat al Minya Transportation: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Taxis in Minya are relatively new to the city (started in1997), but they are gaining popularity quickly. They are the best and fastest way to move around and for a cheap fixed fare (L.E.2.00 or less than $0.20!) you can go anywhere within el Minya city. Be aware, some drivers would want to jack up the price once they realize you're a tourist. Just insist on paying the fixed fare (L.E. 2.00) nothing more, and of course you can always leave a tip (baksheesh)!
