Barkers. The tourist trip to Egypt should be bright and harmless

Than the tourist trip to Egypt can turn back?
At a trip to round across Egypt you learn a lot of the fascinating. The ordinary phenomenon on streets of Cairo, in particular near Talaat Harb, – barkers who represent peaceful local inhabitants and strenuously try to start conversation with tourists. It is the most true swindlers and speculators, absolutely not by all means young, which purpose consists in somehow to make a fool of you, to assure to get excursion rounds at the overestimated cost, guide or personally to take away you in shops. Generally thanks to them the tourist trip to Egypt can manage to you much more expensively, than you counted. There the barker in Arab will say yours to the dealer that he is your guide, and should receive commission charges from everything that you buy, which, naturally, will be added to your account. And speech in this case goes not about ordinary 10 percent on tea. Usually barkers give preference to certain shops of perfumery and papyruses with which they povsevremenno work, but they can go with you in though what other shop. The owner at all this acts with them at the same time to avoid troubles, – you next week will leave, and the barker remains. To start conversation of the barker usually approach to you behind. At behaviour everyone the manner. Someone does a compliment to your external shape, others simply ask that specifically you look for: if someone asks you a similar question though there are no external signs of that you are truly occupied with searches, can be convinced, it is a barker. If such person managed to grasp your trust, it will be very heavy to get rid of it. Do not make an ordinary mistake – do not call to it your name and hotel, and then you can find that that it came there and asked on you. Naturally, вип hotels of Egypt look behind such things, but whether quite often we become lodgers of vip-hotels? Or, for example, to you on the street can address by name of absolutely stranger who can even tell: «you do not remember me?», as if you already met earlier; such people quite often work with groups.
Barkers and safety of tourists in Egypt
Discrepancy consists that in Cairo strongly is a lot of simply peacefully adjusted people who welcome you on the street without any bad intention. it is quite often audible: «Welcome to Egypt!» and, usually, these words have no additional sense. Therefore as you can find, invited before you or is not present? the 1st practical rule speaks: whoever it was, there is no need to be rough, simply smile and greet, nod or wave a hand in reply, but never slow down own step. Continue to go. The ordinary Egyptian will not feel itself offended. The barker, maybe, will try to suspend you, asking, where you so hurry up, or why you are annoyed or upset, or he can accuse you of roughness. Not including that, ordinary Egyptians do not approach to you behind to begin conversation. They address to you when you pass by, though barkers can arrive as. Generally, you can get rid of the barker, prevaricating. If, for example, he asks, where you go, you can funny answer:« anywhere». From time to time you can curse for it, but it is better, than if any of them will stick to you. On the last case not запамятовывайте that sticking to tourists is illegal is breaks safety of tourists in Egypt, and you can count that ordinary Egyptians will be on your party if you have severe difficulties. Usually there is no need to be rough or to argue; if you from the very beginning realise a situation, you can get rid of barkers quite promptly. Excursion rounds, usually, carry out to Egypt on the laid routes therefore barkers prefer certain areas. One of them is Shariya Talaat Harb, in particular between Medan Tahrir and Medan Tallat Harb where their favourite place – Felfela, the intersection is expensive (where they quite often approach to you when you run across the street). In number of other places where barkers work, enter Guriya and the Market of spices in Islamic Cairo, it is also expensive from there to Bab Zuveyla. Certain work also for Shary Takhrir on the peninsula of Gezira. People in Egypt, welcoming you in areas with small number of tourists, hardly will appear barkers. In such places it is even more possible that someone from decent Egyptians has become interested in your personality.

Going to Egypt from Kaliningrad, not запамятовывайте that swindlers can be met everywhere. Strive on the safety.
