When hiring a guide or driver is charge always per person?

Jump to last reply

We (a family of 5 adults/teens) are traveling to South Africa in August and while in Capetown we wanted to hire a guide for 1 or 2 days to visit the penisula and some other sights. A travel agent quoted us a price of $180US pp per day. That's $900 for a one day tour for the 5 of us! I don't understand this. We will all be in one vehicle (we're cramped not the guide) and there is only one guide so why does it matter how many people he's talking to? Obviously at that rate we won't be taking any tours but is that the norm? The same question goes for car transfers. We are being quoted pp on everything and that really drives the price up.
