I myself experience the "tour" hustle. When visiting Otavalo, my family and I needed a ride to the Traditional Market. The caretaker of the house we stayed at hooked us up with his amigo as well. The first day the ride was $12 to the market and $12 back. $7 over if we had got our own cab and $11.50 over the bus ride we could have taken for .$25 each person.

The next day, he drove us to the market again and this time he tried to charge us for the "tour". $30 AND he wanted a tip. I told him I was not stupid and I want my change!!!! No tip!!!! He was really getting on my nerves following us around and now I understood why. That was the last time we called for his ride. We took the bus the duration of our stay and we were fine.
