    Loved a Travel Zoo Top 20 trip we took to France last April. Trying to book the China trip but having a great deal of difficulty working with an agent from the Sinorama Travel Agency -Vancouver Office. I hope they have someone contact me that isn’t just trying to say do it yourself online

    Have booked travelzoo vacations several times and had great experiences… until we booked a trip to Dubai with NEXUS TOURS. It was a nightmare and I advise anyone considering their tours to look at their options. After booking we could never get a complete/accurate itinerary, and minimal responses from Medina (the agent) and Wendy (her supervisor). We tried calling and emailing, and when they did respond days or weeks later – it was not with the information we were requesting. They changed hotels just before departure, to a lesser quality hotel, and not in the area of our original hotel. The hotel (Marco Polo) was listed as 4-star but it was dirty, rundown, and all night long you heard the horns and people talking in the street. The communication on the tour from our ‘guide’ was non existent. He would say ‘I will call your room’ and we would never hear from him. We were told to be in the lobby at 9 am for a city tour, only to be told ‘you are not on the list’ come back at 2 pm. This happened to about 10 other folks that morning. After arguing that we were told to be there at 9 am, the guide finally said get on the bus. The tours as described/purchased were not what we received. The tour bus was ridiculously hot on every trip, as was the DHOW tour on Dubai Creek. The included lunches were very cheap buffets (ex: 12.50 Dirhams which is about $5 US). The guides were noted as ‘English speaking’ but they provided very little information about what we were seeing, didn’t speak very good English, and spoke very quietly into the microphones so you could not hear. People on the tour were given inconsistent information about times and meeting locations. The tours consistently ran late, and the worst example was the last day when we were supposed to return to the hotel by 5 pm for the folks who were flying out that night at 9 pm. We exited the bus at 7:30 pm to get dinner, and they were still 20 minutes away from the hotel. The guide left the trip on 2 occasions before we returned to the hotel. Many of the tour stops were for sales pitches, such as the Miraj Art Museum. They spent 15 minutes on rug sales for as much as $15000. On the desert safari, the tour guests were told to be in the lobby at 3. The guide told the safari drivers 4, and the hotel desk 3:30. When the drivers arrived, there were more people than available seats and it took over an hour to get it resolved. We were crammed 7 or 8 people to a vehicle in 100 degree heat. The onl positive thing I can say is that the driver was there when we arrived to transport us to the hotel, and picked us up on time. Many other people on the tour voiced displeasure with there experience as well, but I am speaking about my own experience. We work hard to earn our vacation dollars and deserve a better experience than this!
