Just thought I would share my taxi experience last week since it was good and may be useful to someone else. In the past I have been long hauled and lost my #%$^ on cab drivers for ripping me off and I really didn't want to ruin any of my vacation being angry so this time I came prepared. There are a couple (probably more than a couple) of cab drivers who don't believe in long hauling and they promote their philosophy on twitter and you can book them for pick up at the airport or anytime during your trip (during their shifts, of course). So I got in touch with @hackingvegas and made arrangements to be picked up at the airport and he was there right on time, gave us some tips on where construction was affecting traffic (in case we took other cabs this would help us know where to expect abnormal routes) and was able to connect us with a driver for the evenings who we could also book and be confident that we wouldn't be getting ripped off. Basically we had our own personal cab service and all we had to do was text them with time and location that we needed a ride and they were always there on time and got us around quickly. We did always let the cab stand guys at the hotels know that we had called a specific cab so that no one got crap for line cutting (us or the cab driver). Anyway, I highly recommend this option - great stress free service.
