Tout is any person who solicits a customer in an importune, typically aggressive or bold manner. An example would be a person who is always to be found in heavily touristed areas, who presents himself as a guide (particularly towards those who do not speak the local language) but operates on behalf of local bars, restaurants, or hotels, being paid to direct tourists towards certain establishments.

*Be cautious going to places recommended by touts as you make decision based entirely on what the tout says, but reality is rarely what they promised it would be and unfortunately not on a better side.
