Manila Kalesa ride is a RIP OFF!

by Queen
(Pasig)

In front of Luneta park, we asked a kalesa guy how much the ride will be, he then handed us a picture with 5 different destinations and the guy said 350.

My husband asked again and again "350 lahat na?" The guy said YES! (We thought how cheap it was).

We just went to 3 different places. After the ride, he took us to a place where we had to pay we handed the guy 400 pesos, the guy said "kulang" (confused) he then asked us for 2,100 pesos. He explained that it's 350php per person, per 30min. He insisted that he was clear to us.

If he specifically said that from the beginning we wouldn't have ridden the darn thing. I think we are more educated to understand 350 pesos (period) he didn't even say "per person" Mga manloloko! We got it on video and we have a picture of the kalesa guy.

How can we not pay when he took us to a shady corner with shady looking guys around staring. Parang na hold up feeling namin.

GIVE THEM A CHART WITH SPECIFIC PICTURES and PRICES! They are taking advantage of people. I've read so many things about this. DO SOMETHING!

His horse name is RAMBO

Its Pahalik Day, from walking around the place, my 3yr old nephew saw a horse,(kalesa) feeling tired and excited..in all...we asked how much from there to sm manila. Manong replied 50 per head. So we are 4..means 200. And we agreed..as we alight in his kalesa..a few walks of the horse..Manong said 350 he will tour us in Intramuros.I asked 350..? Ok I said. Thinking that from 200 to 350 we were able to experience kalesa inside with the fascinated look from my brother,nephew and niece, i find it worthwhile. And for about an hour ride and now riding off the kalesa at SM Manila, I paid 350..when suddenly, Manong said 'discount ko na kau sa bata, kulang pa kayo ng 700', shocked..aq! Huh..bakit? I ASKED...DB PO 350..ngtanong kmi..50 per head. Eh d 200..then sbi nio 350 ikot sa intramuros..? Then Manong replied..' ay d po tau ngkaintindihan 350 po per head, Maam. Feeling stunned na tlg pla may ganun tao! At nasa paligid ka na lage mong nappntahan..ksama ko pa kapatid ko at mga pamangkin..na enjoy nmn..un tingin ko kay Manong, ANG TINDI TLG!!! TLG NG EXIST CLA MGA GANUN.. im thinking how noble being Kutsero and the Kalesa being our heritage.. And I am as a Filipino... tas ganun cla.. Nakakahiya, Okey! Hayan 700 muh. Pera lng yan kikitain..pero ang karma, ewan ko lang..NAAWA AKO SA KABAYO!!! BE KIND TO ANIMALS KAMI... sa katuwaan mga pamngkin ko.
SINO MAN MAKABASA AT SANA MAKARATING SA KINAUUKULAN..GAWAN NG AKSYON ANG MGA TAONG GANYAN SA KAPWA.. WE STILL BELIEVE IN GOODNESS IN PEOPLE.. IMAGINE HOW IN TH EYES AND EARS NG MGA BATA..GANUN MGA TAO..I HAVE 3yr old and 7yr old with 17yr old kids with me..experiencing how fraud people can become. Almost 2hours kami nag aasaran
...hayan kalesa, kalesa pa! Alam nila ang kasamaan na nagawa ni MANONG mukha nmn oK..pero HUDAS! KARMAHIN TLG SIYA AT MGA KATULAD NIA.. SANA HINDI LANG TOKHANG GAWIN NI PRESIDENTE DUTERTE...PATI RIN MGA KUTSERO... IPA DRUGTEST!!! DHIL ANG MATINONG TAO NDE MANLOLOKO NG KAPWA NIA! ANG TINGIN KO NA KAY MANONG KUTSERO MUKHANG TOKHANG!
