Taxi Fare Cairo Airport to Pyramids

Can anyone tell me how much I should expect to pay a private taxi outside Cairo airport to go to the Pyramids (one way)? Also roughly how long would this normally take?

About 100 LE, little more or less depending on bargaining skills and the mood of the day.

The ride duration from the airport to the Pyramids depends a great deal on the time of the day. It's perhaps faster in the early morning (40 minutes) than in the afternoon (60+ minutes). Friday morning, before 10 am is the best time. No traffic whatsoever.

the point is that THE AIRPORT ON THE other side of the city so it s quite a good distance , besides that there s no private agency for hiring taxis at the airport so you have to arrange it well in advance.

If you ride a camel or horse from the pyramids to Memphis, do you know if it is easy to get a taxi back to Cairo? And how much it might be?

Thanks for any help.

You shouldn't have any problem catching a taxi at Memphis (if nothing else, there’s a cafe near the entrance where you can arrange one) but how is the horse/camel going to get itself back to the pyramids?.

We just came back and the taxi fare from the JW Marriott Heliopolis to the pyramids round trip with the driver waiting was 270 Egyptian pounds (about $40 US dollars).

Egypt was fabulous!!!!! Although people harass you like crazy at the Giza pyramids, they are still worth a visit. Totally different from 30 years ago!

If you hire one of the white taxies you must be remarkably good to bargain to pay the trip for 100 EG Pound. You wouldn't pay too much if you pay 150 -200. (14 - 19 EURO). Dependent on the traffic less than an hour would be good time. Don't accept taxi drivers inside the airport, many are trixters. Either hire from a geuine limosine service or cross the tarmac drive down to the parking area that's where you will find the white taxies. Y ou will be approach along the Pyramid Road by young men who will offer you horses even open your door. Just so you know.

A meter on the taxi is called an 'Adad'. Remind the taxi driver to start the meter or find another taxi. But not from the airport.

It would be really convenient to have a table where I can see what a reasonable cab fare would be between two given points in Cairo. For example, Tahrir Square to Islamic Cairo, or Egyptian Museum to Memphis, etc.
