There is nothing wrong with this when they present it as their experience and their opinion. There is a lot wrong when they try to pass it off as fact. If they can't cite sources, if you can't trace the line back to real, hard evidence, you need to rethink your source.
Tour guides are not paid to be historians. They're paid to entertain you and to drop anecdotes that keep you from falling asleep on the tour. As an American, I've heard tour guides tell me things like "bats are the only mammals that lay eggs" (er...what?) and that the ancient Egyptians worshipped cats (sigh -- see essay).
Always ask for sources. Always question. The truth really is out there. You just need to be curious and make like an archaeologist -- dig.
just want to say thanks!
