We had a quote from a tour guide/driver for a van for the day at 600rmb and booked it for late January, months ago. I found her details off the internet - Lulu firstname.lastname@example.org.
The understanding was that we would go to the great wall and other places of our choice. We had emailed back and forth and it was clear that we would choose other places to go to when we decided.
Now she emails and says we will be taken to the great wall and also 2 factories - Jintai Blue factory and silk factory. I emailed back to say we did not want to go to factories, only great wall, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. She emailed back to say that if we did not go to the factories, it will be now 1000RMB. This is 400rmb more than our standing agreement of the past few months.
This is outrageous, dishonest and a shameful reneging of an agreement. If she is a legitimate tour guide and there is a regulation body, I would like to report her for such disgraceful behaviour. I have just cancelled the booking and am now looking for a driver of a van and tour guide for the day in 2 wks time.
Can anyone recommend an HONEST tour/taxi van driver please for a good price?
