Booking a tour
– Hi. I wonder if you can help me
– I will certainly try
…what can I do for you?
– Well, it’s my first day here in Sydney
… and I would like some advices on the local tourist spots
– We offer a wide range of tours
…have a look at these leaflets and see if there’s anything you like
– What’s the Wildlife Park like?
– Oh, it’s very good
…If you don’t have time to go and see the wildlife in its natural habitat you should try it
– What animals do they have there?
– Oh, let’s see now. They have kangaroos, koalas, possums, wombat animals. There’re a lot
– I like wildlife
…so that’s one place that I should visit
– The leaflet says that that place is a Koala sanctuary too?
– Yes, New South Wales has a lot of bush fires in the summer
– Yes, I remember reading about one in a newspaper not very long ago
– A lot of koalas are made homeless when the forests are burnt down
…the sanctuary rehomes them
– Well, it’s nice to know that the money goes to a good cause
– Obviously, it’s not just koalas
…a lot of other animals are either killed or injured too in the fires
– Hm….Ok, this is another place on my list of places to visit
– There’s a bus that goes there every morning at 9am
…Would you like me to book a place for you?
– Yes, I’ll go tomorrow
…Will the bus pick me up from the hotel?
– Yes, just wait at the reception and they will call you
– Are there many things to see closer to the hotel?
– Yes, here’s the map of the area
…It is yours to keep
– Thank you. I’d like to take a walk around
…where should I start?
– Well, the hotel is located here, quite near the port quay
…right around the corner is the weekend market
…It is open right now, you could start there
– Oh yes, thank you. I will
…. And after that ?
– Right across from the port quay, it’s the Opera House
…you could take a tour of the complex
– That sounds good, too
…what shows are on at the moment?
– Well, here’s the leaflet containing all the performances this month
…you can check for availability of seats at the booking office while you’re there
– Thank you very much for all your help
…I’d better go now before the market closes
– No problem, sir
…I’m at this desk everyday, should you need any other advices
