"Much Ado About Nothing" comes to mind...

Quoting CheersT

This "scam" is NOTHING compared to what you'll face in many places all over the world.

Bottom line: Buyer beware and don't be a naive sucker for the first professional salesman who approaches you in a foreign country.

Live and learn...

Cheers,
Terry

I also agree, was expecting to find out the original poster was completely scammed and didn't get to go on any of the tours/the person/company didn't exist!

I encountered much worse attempts at scams when I was in South-East Asia!

Although im sorry you got ripped off, as with others I agree with Terry. But I also disagree with aspects of the comment about the 'englishmen' ripping people off made by leana.kay.3. Not just the english who do this love and welcome to the cutthroat world of sales, your right they probably are trying to keep thier jobs to prevent going home and I dont agree with the dishonesty but I do think its unfair to judge and generalise that they do it only to earn money to get drunk and pick up girls. Dont tar everyone with the same brush, one bad experiance doesnt mean everyone is the same.

Wicked strikes again! They got me too. I booked a Taste the Barossa tour after they first tried to sell be another tour (however I specifically wanted Taste the Barossa because of the reviews on TA) and so they booked it with no enthusiasm. Late that afternoon they rang to apologise to say the tour company made a mistake and overbooked however wanted to upgrade me by putting me on another tour I agreed but also rang Taste the Barossa to see if there were any last minute cancellations and explained Wicked booked me on than had to cancel: THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT! They had spare seats and so Wicked made up the whole story because I guess they get more commission off the other tour. I went in the next day and they refused to give me a refund and well I basically stayed there annoying them for an hour then threatened to ring the police ... got the refund in the end. They are DODGY!!! Be careful!!!
