About Pool tours
A pool tour means that you are being put together with people from other hotels to make a visit somewhere together.
What you should know is that guides on these tours are not paid so well. This has two consequences. First, the good guides find work somewhere else, second, the 'lesser' guides who do work the circuit will try to compensate for their (low) wages by begging for tips and most of all, by taking you to souvenir markets and restaurants where they get a high commission. How you react to this situation is up to you, but we'd like you to be informed well before buying.
