Jul 28th 2010 2:48AM went to HK a few months ago and i was also disappointed with the tour company (WIN'S Travel) ...when i came back home, i told my friend and cousin what happened and she told me that she also experienced it 4 years ago!! and was actually a lot worse because they were hard selling the photo's which they have stick on the plate with sky high prices... she was embarassed because the guide won't let them (and other passengers) go down the bus unless she buys all the plates.. and i was still lucky that our tour guide did not do that to me and was not tooo pushy.. i just bought 1 souvenir plate out of goodwill but he even asked me to buy at least 2 but i said NO! firmly... my oh my... it's the first time i encounter such guided tour that hard sells anything.. tipping is actually ok coz we were informed beforehand about that. i just don't like pushy people and dirty tricks..tsk tsk. that's why i sometimes don't like to go on guided tours. but sometimes, it;s the easier route coz you get to a lot of places and with transportation as well....your sure not to get lost.
