On the advertisement paper it said we where going to visit markets and musea, experiencing cultural and historical things. Of the 5 hour tour we spent 45 min driving to the footballstadium, we told our tour guide we were not into sports but still we spent another hour just looking at it. Then we visited the tourist market, which felt uncomfortable because it was clear he had deals with certain merchants, so we had to enter these shops and it felt like we were obligeted to buy things. The worest part was when we entered a shop that sold ivory jewelery and things made from elephant hair. I felt very insulted because we had just come back from a trip to the Krugerpark where poaching is still a humungous problem and animals get slaughtered every day. We then did the herb market which was really interesting to see, but unfortunately there was no explainations of the things we saw. After that we were dropped for lunch (after he first wanted to get his own food somewhere else) and apparentely the tour had ended 2 hours before the tour actually had to end. We were told lunch was included, it was not. My travelling partner asked him why we did not went to the museums, at the end we rushed trough 2 musea in an half an hour. As a tourist you always get ripped-off at some point, but this was the worest case I ever came across. It costed 750 R per person, so about 67 euros.
