Not resolved

I have done two trips with Gate 1. On the first one, to Myanmar/Burma, we were allegedly in Mandalay for 'two days and nights'. The truth of the matter was that we arrived late one evening, with just enough time to have a quick dinner and go to bed ASAP, as our wake up call the next day was at 5:30am!!! Then it was on to the bus and we toured ALL DAY up until 8pm!!! We did have a lunch break for a very mediocre lunch. Then back on the bus and returned to the hotel for a late dinner (again)! We again had to go to bed early for a 5am wake up call to make the plane to go to the Bagan Plains.

Now I don't know about you, but only one day for seeing all the sights of Mandalay was not sufficient!!! It is a magnificent city and one day did not do it justice at all.

So, despite a few misgivings, I did another trip with Gate 1 to India. We had exactly the same problem with 'alleged two nights and days' in New Delhi. Again, it was a 7am to 9pm day trying to squeeze in as many sights as we could, because we had to go to the airport early AM for a flight! Needless to say, one day in New Delhi is not enough time to do it justice!

And, in this case, we didn't even get lunch! Our group was exhausted and not very happy!!

To add insult to injury, we had four full days in Varanasi. We could have done Varanasi in two days - easily! So we had five trips to the River Ganges... way too much! What a pity Gate 1 doesn't seem to know how long to book in each area.
