    If I am going back TO the airport from Cosmopolitan, would the best thing to tell the cab driver besides "no tunnel" is to take Harmon to Paradise?
    I know people say you don't normally get long hauled going BACK to the airport, but last time our cabbie took the tunnel. It cost over $23 and it was DESERT Cab.
    So if I say "no tunnel, just the streets. Take Harmon to Paradise", will I be okay and get a more reasonable fare?

    Thanks

    Yes... you'll be fine that way. Hard to imagine LV Blvd to Trop to Paradise would much more either. To "tunnel" you from Cosmo TO the airport is impossible to imagine, but these days fewer and fewer things shock me.

    Another "back to the airport" longhaul is for the cabbie to take the interstate instead of the surface streets. Got long-hauled once leaving from Caesars (Augustus entrance) to the airport via the interstate. The taxi fare was 27.75. A few weeks later, had a cab driver take the surface streets, and it was no more than 15 bucks, with a tip!

    price no more than 15 $ . tell him to take harmon , make sure he doesnt go on the strip either so dont go up trop to the strip to harmon just as bad as the tunnel.

    The only time I've been "tunneled" was TO the airport.
