Excellent tour

Er ging van alles mis doordat we geen Engels sprekende gids hadden. We hadden die wel geboekt en ervoor betaald!!
We hebben een klacht ingediend bij de customer service en hopen hier op een reactie.
Deze tour voldeed volstrekt niet aan onze verwachtingen, ook vanwege de goede ervaringen met onze 4 andere touren bij Viator.

The rating of the trip is absolutely negative. The local agency contacted by Viator cannot guarantee an adequate service we paid US170, 2 Travelers. Here's the history:
At 11:00 pm we get a call .The agency informes us that picking at the hotel paid in advance is not guaranteed and explains us where the new meeting place is.
During the boat trip the guide communicates the obligation to make an extra visit this means: to be paid, not included in the 170US to a theme park Chinese Wonderful, or something like that.
We refuse to participate to this trip because of the absolute lack of scenic and cultural content and we are abandoned. They arrange a ride by bus after 4 hours and they draw a map asking us to take a picture in order to find the picking place attached, Please dont laugh.
To be alone without guidance paid! for 4 hours in a nasty and desolate village Yangshuo represents a shame for any tour operator.
We decide to arrange the return to Guilin by ourselves and we pay in addition to the US170,00 paid to Viator the taxi to the bus station, the bus to Guilin and the taxi from the bus station to our hotel.
I forgot: the included lunch on the boat was low low low-level.
Shameful. Especially if you have paid US 170 1.170,00 rmb in China
We enclose the coupon so you can check the program of our trip and delete this local tour oprator from the list of your suppliers.
China is a wonderful country populated by wonderful people.
Make sure you do not facilitate the villains

The tour operator started off picking up the wrong two guests from our hotel- isn't there some policy and common sense to check names of guests before starting a tour? Reaching the operator was also difficult, as we did not have a local number, and most viator guests reading english would likely be in the same position. We did eventually get on the cruise, but this was after the driver of the tour operator shouted at practically every taxi driver in the vicinity to send us to the harbour... with us two foreign girls standing in the middle feeling helpless in the midst of all the taxi drivers surrounding us. The cruise went pleasantly, but at the end of the tour, because we opted not to go for the optional tours, the guide simply left us there on the sidewalk with a curt BYE. It was literally- get off the boat and bye. No follow-up, no service, no nothing. For the amount we paid we decided to go with an English site after reading all the reviews of smaller boats and shorter tours, this was simply horrible. Please book all your Chinese trips through Ctrip- way cheaper and probably with more Chinese hospitality from locals and even if you don't get the Chinese hospitality, you will likely pay 30 of this price. This tour was honestly disgusting and I have no idea how Viator can function with such inept services This review was also rewritten twice because viator's review submission button isn't working- God help this site.

On a brighter note, Guilin/Yangshuo is amazing and you should definitely visit! Just no viator trips please :
