Circuit mal conçu et service négligent
Mar 2019 • Couples
De très jolies choses et des choses très moyennes dans ce circuit.

La qualité de service de l'agence est peu satisfaisante : sur l'itinéraire qui nous avait été remis, l'hôtel n'était parfois pas le bon - ça complique un peu les arrivées.

Surtout, dans l'itinéraire, les adresses des hébergements étaient fausses plus souvent qu'à leur tour. Dans deux cas, ce n'était même pas la bonne ville qui était indiquée. Le GPS et nous en sommes arrivés à des divergences de vue irritantes.

Certaines des activités inclues dans le tour étaient discutables : les Baldi Hot Springs, par exemple, sont un attrape-nigauds, une usine à touristes très désagréable.

Nous avons terminé dans un hôtel sur la côte Pacifique : hôtel extrêmement mal choisi, à côté de la route, bruyant, décati, piscine inutilisable faute de chaises-longues et de parasols, service inexistant, petit-déjeuner lamentable.L'accès à la plage vanté lors de la vente est une long chemin, mais la plage elle-même est fortement déconseillée tant elle est dangereuse.

Plutôt déconseillé, donc.
