How do I write a review on a Tour Operator

How do I write a review on a Tour Operator. I was given the best service when I was organising my Vietnam Holiday and want to write a post on my experience.

TA only accept listings for tour operators that do one day tours, so you can't write a review for a tour operator that organised your whole holiday.

Hi John;

Actually, many multi-day reviews and even entire listings are removed by TA staff, when they have been alerted to them.

There are many posts on the "Owners' Forums" (restricted access to owners / managers) of both.

To alert TA staff, I would suggest using the "Report" button within the review and then select "Review is Suspicious", then "Other". A text box will open that you can use to contact TA staff.

Best Regards

You're Welcome, John;

>>"I've seen posts removed for mentioning correspondence with TA."<<

Forum posts will only be removed for including correspondence from TA staff.

>>"which plainly break the rules shouldn't be accepted"<<

TripAdvisor receives an average of 11,000 reviews each day. The vetting system is semi-automated as there is no way that someone could read each review separately. No system is perfect, so these reviews get by.

>>"companies that exploit a loophole should be delisted."<<

As I mentioned in my reply above, when found out, they are.

I have reported such violations myself, and within a few weeks, (depending on TA staff's workload) seen such reviews removed. I have also seen an entire listing deleted from the site.

Best Regards
