Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Excellent! Loved it, everything went as anticipated per the instructions and a priortviator reveiew I'd read, which was why I chose Viator. We had 2 pilots on our trip, one just arrived in Dubai and learning the landscape, both were completely professional (one owned the company) and we felt totally safe in their care. Spectacular views of the never-ending desert, dotted with some date and camel farms, and estates with some greenery. Thank you Peter and Mike!
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Enjoyed the elephant trek and rafting. The hilltribe visit to the Lisu tribe could have been made more interesting if we were told of their culture and living style, rather than just a walkthru of the selling stations. We were also expecting visits to the other tribes listed in the itinerary, but our guide didn't take us to any, and the 9 hour tour was only 6 hours, so we felt shortchanged about this. Our guide was humorous, though, we enjoyed him, but would have liked to see the other tribes that were supposed to be included in the trip. He told us initially that we could do other things if time allowed. Then he told us if we went to the tiger kingdom, we would have to pay 500 baht ourselves, when we were already shortchanged by not seeing the other hilltribes that were paid for in advance in this tour. If he wasn't going to take us to the other tribes, then the tiger kingdom fee should have been included in the tour.
This was a good tour, but the original tour info said women's shoulders and knees should be covered. We assumed that a pashmina shawl would suffice for shoulders, since that is accepted in every other country's buddhist temples. It was not acceptable in Bangkok, so this should have been specified in the tour booking information.
