As you come out of the airport the taxis are straight ahead. They will suggest a price of anything up to 200le - some will tell you you can haggle this down to 20le, after a flight I can't be bothered with too much haggling so my approach is I tell them I will pay them 50le (it's a very good price for them) and I've always managed to get a taxi for this price. As an alternative use the service provided by www.Luxor4tours.com - I think the price is between 100-150le they meet you at the airport in a minibus which is in much better condition than 99% of the taxis. If you want a hassle free start to your holiday this is probably the better option.
