... by the touts. That said, in a couple of instances we've bargained successfully to what we've believed to be a good price and then felt guilty since the twenty cents we saved is a trivial amount of money for us but very important for them. We have generally decided to bargain hard for rickshaw rides (based on the rates recommended by Lonely Planet and often by asking several drivers until someone will take our price) but then leave a tip at the end.
