Good place. But they don't let you know when they are going to stop by the hotel. On hold until the last moment

Boff, notre guide n’était jamais avec nous, elle était présente uniquement quand le chauffeur était là... autrement dit on n’a rien appris et elle ne nous a rien expliqué! Un passage express dans un village, non en fait on a vu un spectacle puis on est partis, nous n’avons pas réélection vue le village... ensuite, 3h de route infernale avec un « chauffard » qui sincèrement nous mettait en danger (et oui je sais comment conduire en Chine, ce dernier était simplement hors du commun). Finalement, notre guide ne parlait pratiquement pas en anglais... Nous avons littéralement foutu notre argent à l’eau!
