Rather Poor

    1.5 - Rather poor

    My Biggest mistake of life was to book a tour with topdeck! Other than comfortable bus, nothing else was good! The tour guide seemed like just finishing off her defined duty, without any interest to guide and help us. She had limited knowledge of the places wherever we went. No guidance on how to travel within the city and reach hotel during free days was provided. Poor timing of optional activities (too early at times, especially for Mt. Titlis tour, Switzerland, that everyone got free so early and had nothing else to do all day long as there was nothing else around). Google suggested to take half day trip to Lucerne close by (something our guide had no idea about). She had poor management skills, lack of knowledge to suggest activities during free days. Poor location of hotels (far away from main city) with no basic facilities like drinking water, hair dryer, etc. Breakfast included seemed stale and tasteless. Restaurant for dinner included was 2 km away from hotel in Florence. The walking tour in Florence was repetitive stretch, which we covered four times (to-and-fro for dinner and same stretch during walking tour next morning). She was always in a hurry during the 5 hours walking tour in Rome (left few people behind and had to go back to find them). She was least interested to listen when suggested to make things better. It felt like a training camp than a holiday ! Only good thing was the local tour guide (booked separately) in Vatican City. Overall, waste of money! NEVER book with topdeck!

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • James12th May 2018
      I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
