me : I also not
tourist : we go by Auto Rickshaw.
me : when you came here. what you use.
tourist : we use tourist bus. so we have not idea about pricing.
( they stop one Auto Rickshaw. we discuss with Rickshaw driver about charging.)

Tourist: How can we get there?
Me: You can go by bus, which is cheaper, or you can use an auto rickshaw.
Tourist: We don't know which bus number to take.
Me: I don't either, sorry.
Tourist: We'll go by auto rickshaw.
Me: When you came here, what did you use?
Tourist: We used a tour bus, so we have no idea what the fares are.

(They stop an auto rickshaw, and we discuss the fare with the rickshaw driver.)

Me: You pay him at the end of the ride, not at first. Check with the hotel staff and they'll tell you how much to pay him.
