    Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, feedback regardless of it's nature is always valuable and is taken on board and treated seriously. We are sorry that your tour did not live up to your expectations. The Local Payment does not go towards included activities, instead it is a payment to keep the upfront tour price low. The tour is as stated in the travel itinerary online which shows which excursions are included. We have passed your comments to our Europe Operations team in regards to the hotels and wish you all the best for your adventures in the future. Best, Rosanna @ Tucan Travel
