    Our guide had to speak in three languages. Too much!! At most, two languages per tour. And each language should get equal reporting

    Our tour was great, but Matthew was terrible. I found him rude, his humor off color and my daughter and I felt like we were being led by a bored teacher rather…

    The guide could have informed us every morning or evening of the timing of the day. They could have provided info as we drove along.

    Encounters Travel commented on this review
    Thanks for your feedback James. As you're aware we did an extensive follow up with you after your tour. Following your trip, your tour guide was suspended from working with us, and we have clarified the lunch arrangements. This includes agreeing some fixed price options with several local restaurants (less than you paid) while also making it very clear that these are optional and you can eat elsewhere if you wish. As a goodwill gesture following your guide's conduct, particularly about the tipping requests and the lunch arrangements, we also paid you a 50% refund of the price you paid for the tour, which we were pleased you were happy with. We're very confident the issues that happened on your tour were a one off and apologise again here for any impact they had on your enjoyment of the tour.
