Feedback from the tour guests:
About Bangkok Feedback: -/10/9/8.5/7 Comments: expecting similar to Bali but much cleaner and lots safer and lots more to do. I really enjoyed my time and made the most of my experiences which is the key. At times I felt rushed but may have created it myself with shopping. Not costly and amazing people
PA’s – Brilliant – always translating & explaining – always eager to help.
Tour – rushed – give a free day so you can have a night out or day rest
I did not get a lot re teambuilding, which was the purpose, not enough follow up after activities or group discussion so we did not have unity in the group.
PA’s – awesome girls – they did a great job, feel most welcome.
PA’s – excellent, make you feel so “human” again, when all 1 should be the leader?
We focus on the S,M,A,R,T, goals set by the group/employer.
Each member interprets that differently according to Time constraints, Energy levels (before and during), Collaborative skills (synergy), Personal wants and needs. If we correlate the feedback to “pre defined objectives” the result is an overwhelmingly success.

· Appreciate the difference - Traveler V's Tourist"
