Hello! I am in touch with your tour consultant Danella Chan since last 11 days. I and my sister are looking for a good, professional tour company who can design 10 to 14 days PRIVATE tour of Sabah for bird watching and wildlife (in May or June 2019 with flexible dates). With the quotation of MYR 49730 for 12N/13D, I am told emphatically that... "Please note that the quoted price is just an estimation as we have yet to receive the new rates for April 2019-March 2020. We will revised the new rates to you once it is out.hence I am not able to provide the exact tour price for you. The new rates could go higher between the estimation price or it may not have any difference at all." !!!... What I would like to know is - is this a Company policy and this is how all your clients are put on hold??? With the price of 49730 MYR (not a small amount, you would agree), and booking being done well in advance by travellers, do you want me to wait indefinitely for the actual price? As Danella doesn't come across as warm and friendly person (though nothing personal about it), I would like to have reply from someone 'above' her. After all what we are looking for is a memorable and happy holiday! Also, no other tour company that we enquired with have put us on 'hold' like this!! Hope to receive a professional response.
