You will be scared to pieces at some times or just crack up laughing by all the extreme situations you will be experiencing. But, truth has to be said, it is probably easiest to use a taxi to get around Cairo, particularly if you are traveling with a few other people sharing the costs.
Almost all taxi drivers speak basic English and many even speak Spanish so you won´t have to worry about reaching the right destination. You will have to keep in mind though that you will have to hassle and agree on a price before getting in most of the time. And because of the huge amount of Cairo taxi drivers, it is very easy to get one in almost any area of the city. Beware that they will charge you more in front of a big hotel so if you want to save a few pennies, just walk a block or two before hailing your cab.
