Driver tried to sell us more activities..
Private Langkawi Tour with SkyBridge, Langkawi Cable Car | Nov 2019
We never received a confirmation from the tour operator or Viator about the exact pick up point, luckily one of the locals was so friendly to call them. Our driver was Mohammed, his English wasn’t very good. He drove us to a beach, where we got an introduction about a boat tour to the mangroves, when I looked at the map I saw that we were all the way north of the island which is not in the direction of the cable car. He tried to sell us an extra boat ride of 2 hours that we did not want at all. When we started driving again, he was talking about a waterfall and we stopped again at a kind of travel agency desk. I went to Mohammed and I explained to him that we booked a tour of 4 hours to go to the Cable Car. He explained us that it’s going to be cloudy overthere now in the morning and that’s better to go in the afternoon.. he only wanted to sell other tours to us! After we had this conflict with him, he almost didn’t say anything anymore in the car of he gave barely any narration. When we (finally) arrived at the Cable Car we first had to line up to change our Travel Agent voucher for actual tickets and then line up for the Cable Car. We checked with Mohammed when we hadto be back and he just said take your time. When we came back to the car, he asked us if we wanted to go for lunch. I said to him that we only wanted to do the itinerary that we paid for and included a stop at Eagle Square. At that moment the drama started as he said that we would go over the 4 hours duration of the tour that was scheduled? Well, the droves us to the other side of the island to try to sell us more! At the end, after phone calls with his boss etc, he droves us over to Eagle Square and back to the cruise port where we arrived 1,5 hour later. Would not recommend this tour!
The views from the Cable Car where stunning. The ticket for the little train between the top cable car station and the start of the skybridge are not included, and involves a lot of stairs so I would book that at the kiosk like we did....Read more
