Overall the trip was good. We were picked up from our hotel on time and then driven to a central point with all the other guests. That's when the troubles started. The coaches were ready, but the people who were organising the coaches didn't have a clue. Eventually we were let on the bus and then we had to wait at least 30 minutes for our tour guide. He was on the bus to start with and then decided he had to go somewhere, maybe a cup of tea, who knows. He had trouble checking the guests, couldn't count or something. Not good. We arrived late at the zoo and had to rush to get our breakfast, very good breakfast, and we were lucky to have time with the orangutans. The zoo was brilliant, rode the shuttle bus around and stopped at various places. Overall the trip was good would have better if the people at the start had a clue on how to organise and stay on time
The tour company fetched us on time. We reached the zoo about 15 minutes late due to traffic condition. However, we were seated before the Orang Utan came in. The breakfast spread was nice. From Continental to Oriental menu. After breakfast with photos taken with the Orang Utan, we managed to catch the 1st show ie the Sea Lion, took the tram around the zoo before heading back to the bus as ours was Half Day Tour. The guide gave us choice to stay back should we wish to continue our stay at the zoo. Lovely tour and lovely experience!
The pick up and tour guide was efficient and knowledgable. My only reason for not giving it an "excellent" is that my paperwork said there was no drop off back to the hotel. In fact there was, but I'd made alternative plans, the bus back would have been better for my day.
Everything was great except that we had to move really fast to see as much as possible because we were at the zoo at 09:00 and had to get back to the bus at 11:45. Of course you can always stay for longer and get back on your own
It was exactly what the description said. Pick up was on time, well organized, our tourist was great, knowledgeable and clear. I’d consider booking things from GYG again.
