It was Okay
6 Day South Island Circut: Milford Sound, Queenstown and Glaciers | dec 2019
I honestly would have preferred to go on an expensive tour. There were too many times when one is left wondering, is this where I am supposed to be? Is this the right bus? Oh no, my bus isn't showing up on time, or oh no, my name is not on the list. At one point viator sent a message to me via the hotel they had me staying in saying I needed to go across the street to be picked up for my bus the next morning. I did exactly what they said and waited at the bus stop. The bus came and I wasn't sure if it was the right one or not, but it appeared the to be the one, but they would not let me board. They said my name was not on the list and the bus took off. Another bus never came. Then about 10 minutes later, the bus that would not let me board had circled around town and parked on the other side of the street in front of my hotel. The driver flagged me to come over and apologized saying I was on the list for pick up but at the hotel where I was staying, not across the street.
That whole event caused unwanted stress. This type of thing happened a couple other times during the trip.
The hotel accommodations where clean but very dated in some instances, but I guess you can expect that when you book a 3 star hotel.
I will be sticking with national geographic tours from now on....Meer lezen
