Tribes Service:

Couple of minor points that didn't cause a problem but useful for feedback
We weren't told and didn't realise that we could pay extra to book our plane seats in advance, assuming they had already been allocated at no cost. We therefore paid a couple of days before when we realised, as plane was full we may otherwise have not been sat together.
We asked for an indication of spends per day to include meals. The amount given was low due to the hotels we were staying in, maybe worth taking hotel accommodation into account in future.


Very pleased to have the same driver for all the trip who was excellent
All guides were excellent and knowledgable. I thought the whole Travel Inn experience was fantastic, they went beyond expectations.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Not sure about this as we added to pollution etc
However it is obvious the economy is very reliant on tourism.

When they found out it was our 30th wedding anniversary. They arranged flowers, rose petal filled bath etc and we were able to have a very special tasting menu meal in cinnamon in their private room
