The show as super. I have used Viator many times when booking shows or tours with no problems but this was not the case in Bangkok. When we handed in our voucher to the ticket desk, they said hat they did not have our booking confirmation from Viator and did not know who Viator was. After many pleas and several phone calls from the show manmagement to others, a tour guide they called said he knew of Viator and that he would get the confirmation sorted out. This ordeal took alomost a hour and we got the tickets 5 minutes before the show started! I am not too sure who was at fault here but please ensure that you have all the relevant documents with you following the booking as that is what saved the night! I will use Viator again in the future as this was the first time that I have experienced a problem.
We were very lucky to be seated in the first row. The show was great and fun. Recommended!
This was basically a pick and drop off done by the caberet people. That went perfectly. What did not go well was trying to find out what time the pick up was. The local office did not know when I phoned and asked and then gave me 8pm as the time when the show actually started at 815pm. Fortunately the driver from the cabaret buzzed my room earlier. The show was great - quite short at about 1 hour, but great fun.
Pick Up Service- Was On Time. Driver was polite and waited for us until the show ended. He didn't say much throughout the trip (from hotel to Asiatique).
Venue- Clean, nicely decorated
Show- Lots of dancing and lip singing - but quality was poor. The sound system and song selection needs to be improved in a major way. I would not recommend.
Seats- we were surprised that our seats had no table at all. I didn't see on viator's website any option (to book the seats with a table). Luckily we were allowed by the venue staff to transfer (since there were a lot of vacant tables).
After show- Performers were friendly and allowed picture taking; but most of the guests pass up on this.
The local tour operator, in charge of transportation and getting us the tickets for the show, was good. The theatre in which the performance takes place is also good. Sadly, I didn't feel the show was that good. There are a lot of performers and costumes -- the 'scope' of the show is large but I was let down by the quality of the performances. Perhaps the performers must moderate their energy to save something for the second show of the night (I'm sure it is exhausting). I think my opinion was largely shared by the audience as a whole as applause was tepid at best. I believe this show has been running for 20+ years and maybe it's time to make some changes.
An interesting evening. I got tired of every single person getting introduced many times over during the show. The show was ok. We were collected from our hotel early and had an hour and 1/2 before the show to look around the centre which was really worthwhile. We had dinner at a restaurant on the waterfront We really enjoyed that part of the evening so we ended up considering the cabaret show as an extra bonus.
This fits somewhere between 1 star and 1 and half stars. The costumes were good, the music and songs were very old...I doubt even a 60 year old wouldn't recall them. The 18 year old went to sleep. 6 of us went along and we all had the same opinions. There has to be better shows out there it was quite boring even though the performers were enthusiastic.
The cabaret in Phuket was better, but still an OK night out.
