Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
It turns out we were in the off season and so my husband and I were the only ones on the tour. We thought that was great--until we realized that the guide was hurrying us along to try and finish as quickly as possible. We're usually quick and with no one else to slow us down, we were even quicker. So I'm certain the readers will understand our resentment when we noticed our guide paying more attention to his WATCH than to us. And when he did deign to converse with us, he frequently talked more about himself and his plans to move to the US than the subject matter of the tour. Very disappointing, especially since all our other Viator tours (including Halong Bay) were so delightful.
We booked this tour during the off season and were thus the only couple on the cruise. The crew were very attentive and the food was fantastic. Our guide was great and did a great job of informing us and answering all our questions. Being the only couple on board, we truly felt like we were living in the lap of luxury! The crew accomodated my husband's wishes to swim off the boat with him and I'm glad they did because he ended up getting stung by a jellyfish and they were right there with him. It was obvious the crew was very professional and upon comparing stories with other couples, I'm glad we booked through Viator. And it was always evident in the condition of the boats.
