Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The tour van arrived on time and we managed to visit all that were promised.
However, we did not really enjoy the tour fully for the following reasons:
1. Tour guide was not fully engaged with tourists as he would talk continuously and kept repeating certain info again and again. We did not have a chance to ask questions as he did not maintain much eye contact with us while he did the talking. He hardly smile though i can't say he's unfriendly.
2. The places were not as interesting as it appeared to be.
London, United Kingdom
In terms of time keeping, the coach and visiting schedule for each place was either on time or just right, which was good. I do appreciate the fact that we were given complimentary hotel transfer to the meeting point at Victoria Coach Station.
Other than this, i do not have very positive experience on this trip.
The guide that met us just for the complimentary transfer from hotel to Victoria seemed to be in a bad mood. He was unfriendly and showed impatience towards the tourists, such as hurrying them to the coach. I think his name was John. I was glad that he was not our tour guide, instead, Kevin (or Kelvin) who can speak Japanese, is much friendlier, and often put on a smile as much as he can. Kevin was swift in all the logistics arrangement, and gave clear instructions on where to assemble and so on.
