Cap-drivers here are extremely expensive..Forwhich..i strongly recommend the 'CTA' which is an AC bus covers the touristic &important sights in cairo&giza..it's cheap..clean..but always take into consideration, the CTA bus is a new service so you won't find it in guide books:P ,so you'd need to ask the locals about it's sations..
with the CTA bus..

The traffic is crazy in Cairo and so are the cab drivers! I would recommend traveling within Cairo by taxi, but do not get into a taxi without negotiating your price first! Be very firm about the fare. If you get into a taxi without arranging the price first you may be in for a shock when you arrive at your destination- it will be at the whim of the driver.
We did get around mainly by foot. Only to the pyramids we took a taxi (which is very cheap if you bargain right...) As taxis are very cheap one shouldn't even think of taking a bus when travelling alone...
The only advantage by going by feet you get in much more contact with the people and a better feeling of this astonishing town.
This is a real trip. Taxi's...
This is a real trip. Taxi's are very easy to find. Be sure to have a correct address witten down in arabic and negotiate a price with the driver 'before getting into the cab'. Upon arrival at your destination get out of the cab with all your belonging and then pay the driver. Do not cheat him but be aware he may try and tell you that you owe more. If he gives you a hard time just yell 'cheat', a merchant or tourist policeman do not like 'cheats' and if available will come to your rescue. If not take the drivers information and turn him into the authorities.
Taxi's. Trying to drive in Cairo is like playing bumper cars and is an extreme challange to any western experienced driver. But the Egyptians are very good. If weak hearted then set in the back seat NOT THE FRONT. Women should always set in the back seat!

Taxis are cheap, Again agree on a price before you go.
Also I recommend having your hotel arrange for the taxi ,
I have always had a very good Driver when any Hotel that has arranged the taxi.
