Do I need a guide?

It’s useful to hire a registered guide for half a day or more. Your guesthouse will arrange it for you. However, bear in mind that it might be better to go out by yourself at first and get orientated, and then hire a guide. Make sure your guide doesn’t take you into lots of shops where he’ll earn commission – make it quite clear beforehand if you don’t want to shop. Prices are up to 50% higher if you shop with a guide.
