Guide had good English. The canal ride was terrific. Wish it had been longer. The temples were over run with tour groups, which is to be expected. I was expecting to be returned to my hotel but was astounded to be taken to a gem factory/retailer. Forced to sit through a glitzy promo video, then marched through the gem store by a pushy salesperson even though I told her I had no intention of buying anything. Only then was I handed off to a van driver for transport. Had him drop me off at the nearest transit station. A terrible end to a not so bad tour.
Guide was terrible. I was picked up first. He didn't introduce himself. He talked to the driver and on his phone while we drove around picking up other people. Then we got dropped at a hotel with NO information, other than "wait here". Finally, we were squeezed into a van. Only then did he introduce himself. He had poor English and his commentary amounted to repeating a few obviously memorized chunks of info. Van was not sufficiently air conditioned. Will not book with this operator again.
