That sounds like it went pretty well. I'm glad Aamer was there with you as these little sheishters will take as much $$$ from you as they can get away with if they aren't being watched.
As far as his comments/looks/whatever at the end that made you feel as if you hadn't tipped enough, I think they consider that part of their job to do that. They probably all share stories at night about how much they were able to guilt people into giving them more. Geez!
If you paid LE200 for 3 animals (yours, your husbands, and Aamers)and 2 boys to lead the animals, you paid a fine price. Not too much, not too little.

CC... I can easily see why folks are pressured to tip more if they don't have a local with them to help. I guess we are their livlihood so they try and take advantage of they can. I had had enough of the camel ride after 5 minutes... so going for an hour was a VERY long time...
