DESASTRE ABSOLUTO
Passport466941
, Aug 2019
Contratamos la excursión un día pintoresco en Hangzhou, incluía: Crucero de 1 hora en West Lake, Entrada - Lingyin Temple, Entrada - West Lake (Xi Hu), Entrada - Pagoda of Six Harmonies. NO HICIMOS NADA DE ESTO, lo que visitamos fue pagada Leifeng, Museo de la seda, Qinghefang Ancient Street. Es decir otra excursión que se oferta en VIATOR, un tour Cultural más barato que el que habíamos pagado, y además en el tour Cultural ofrecido se incluye el almuerzo, pero NOSOTROS TUVIMOS QUE PAGARLO POR NUESTRA CUENTA. UN DESASTRE ABSOLUTO. RECLAMAREMOS, PERO NOS ARRUINARON LA VISITA A HANGZHOU
