How it works:
- Opening: touts jump into your taxis while it is stationary at a junction.
- Set-up: they are super persistent and will pressure you to detour to a “highly recommended” shop. Some are actually the driver’s accomplices – in that case, your driver will detour to the shop even if you protest.
Places to beware:
- Giza: Pyramids of Giza
What to do:
- Stand your ground. If you suspect your driver is in on the act, get out and flag another cab.
