poche le cose positive

non molto comprensibile la politica di esigere tutto il pagamento prima dell'inizio del servizio. Il cliente deve fidarsi ciecamente del servicer, mentre sarebbe normale che si paghi una acconto alla conferma e il saldo all'effettivo inizio del tour.
La guida di Luang Prabang non aveva letto il programma di...

Consider carefully what is offered and the overall cost.

Service rating : For what we received we were very disappointed with the cost. Yes, we visited what was listed but there were hiccups. Like, having to ask why we did not go to Plain of Jars 3 and then a hastily bit of organisation to actually go there later that afternoon. The reason - guide thought...

Service rating : This was the second time using Backyard Travel. Our time was a great experience. The only reason why I have 4 stars is there was a discrepancy on the itenerary from what was given to me personally by our guide and what was given to us by the hotel. The time was off by 30 min and I...
