"Perfumes and Papyrus" Hawkers and hassle Tip by jobelly
Hawkers and hassle, Cairo: 41 reviews and 33 photos
Often guided tours include a visit to a perfume or papyrus shop, whether you want to go or not!, and a regular trick is to ask your name in the papyrus shop - which they promptly apply to a papyrus - so that you feel obligated to purchase. The atmosphere in these shops can get a little frosty if you refuse. We went with the flow mostly - getting ripped off when you first arrive is part of the "Cairo" experience. You learn quickly.
