My friend and I were going to buy the $99 Beijing tour at the end of this month. After we made a mistake and purchased our airline tickets from Nexus, and after discussing the total costs numerous times (flight + $99 per person tour + $56 per person tips), the Nexus travel agent is claiming that i have to pay $100 more because I am a foreigner. I asked him why and his answer was that if I was going with an all foreign group a tour like this would cost me much more. My friend is as American as I am, the only difference is that he looks Chinese and I don't. I am really mad over this whole situation and wish we had never gone through them. We checked with other agencies and they do not charge non-Chinese people extra. Has anyone ever heard anything like that, and is such discrimination even legal? This left a really bad taste in my mouth. I was really looking forward to the trip.
