I was going to say yesterday that your 1st cab driver long hauled you. There's absolutely no reason a cab from mcCarran to the excalibur would be $40. I usually stay at Tahiti village & its further than the excalibur. A cab is about $25 including tip. I love Vegas but everyone is trying to beat you there. Last time we went with friends of ours & my buddy got scammed for $100. Cashed out the machine he was on right in front of his face, then bummed a cigarette off him before he left with his ticket, lol. Them damn criminals are good there!
