Although taxis serve at very reasonable prices, drivers often try to deceive tourists about the price. Short distance to the desired location in the city 5-10LE, the most distant distance is around 40 LE. For this reason, we recommend that you agree on a price before boarding a taxi.
Minibuses depart from Titanic Aqua Park and travel through Sakala and Dahar Square. You can get off the van at any point. Although it is cheap, you should ask for the price by saying the location before going.
