Mahabaleshwar Tourist Traps

  • by creative123456 Written Sep 22, 2004

    As u reach u will be surrounded by Touts on pretext of showing you Hotrels FREE OF CHARGE be careful dont hire any one because the hotelier will give u a room of Rs. 500 for rs. 850 the diff.. 350 is the commission to the agent

    Unique Suggestions: Dont get involved with the TOUTS or GUIDES ot THE CANVASRS the cheta u to a very very great extent BE VERY CAREFUL dont hire any one to show u rooms go to HOTEL TEMPLEVIEW mahabaleshwar to get a room of rS. 150 /- onwards Bargaining possible

    Fun Alternatives: GO DIRECTLY TO HOTEL TEMPLEVIEW and bargain with the manager there
