Fake Tour Guides

When visiting most popular areas you might come across touts claiming to be tour guides. If you happen to sign up with one of them, they would take you to places you don’t want to go, bring you over to various uncles’ rug shops, souvenir, jewellery shops and alike  where you will be pressured into buying things. *Your so called ‘guide’ has an agreement with the shop owner and receives a commission from anything you buy.

In worst cases scenario touts may take your money for their ‘services’ and abandon you. Sometimes they also might try to sell you weed / hashish, which should be avoided at all costs as it may lead to criminal prosecution in countries where drugs are illegal.
